Our system allows you to publish ads and target users with different criteria, including specific location. This means that in addition to other targetting criteria, you can also target clients within a specific locality, ideal for small businesses who are concerned primarily about users within their localities. But if your business can sell to people in any part of the country, then you may select every location in your targetting criteria.

You may publish an advertisement in any of these categories:

1. Product or service: If your advertisement is mostly about a product or service, or personal item or set of personal items for sale, including a single item or a set of single items sold at a discount (e.g a set of dormitory items from a graduating student) then select this category

2. Event: If your advertisement is based on events like training, workshop, seminar etc, select this category

3. Discount: If you're offering a discount or promo that spans across more than one product, for instance "10% discount on all our products, 10% discount on our Nokia Lumia phones", select this category
