P-O Life Classified Ads
Selling your car, your bike, your partner? Looking for a new one? Offering garden tidy, cleaning, B&B, home made pies and pasties, spam fritters, lift to the airport….? You can even advertise your house for sale or rental.
Nothing really beats a good old fashioned (online) version of classified ads, local to the P-O and easy to browse, contact and connect.
Facebook, eBay, Le Bon Coin and all the rest can be great if you know what you’re looking for but they roll down quickly, disappearing from view, and can also be the stomping ground of undesirable characters.
The P-O Life Classifieds, launched this summer, has been a great success, with most sellers reporting sales before the end of their 3 month run time.
Because of the increasing costs of running P-O Life online and in print, we’re now asking for a very small contribution to place a 3 month ad:
|Item value||Classified Ad Cost (TTC)|
Over the 3 month run time, your ad will be live in our online directory, and featured in our twice-monthly Classifieds newsletter. A link to the Classifieds will also be provided in each weekly newsletter too… that’s loads of visibility for such a small price!

A history of Classified Ads
The oldest version of classified ads can be traced back to around 2000BC. The Ancient Egyptians used papyrus to create notices and wall posters
A while later, around 59BC, the Roman Empire began to publish daily acts (Acta Diurna) as ordered by Julius Caesar. The notices were carved into stone and metal and posted in public spaces. Quite a lot of hard work involved to sell your second hand toga!!
Today, it’s a little easier to advertise! The form of small ads that we now know was first published in 1704 – the first ever newspaper ad in the Boston News-Letter, paving the way for the modern newspaper classifieds.
Our version of Classified Ads
No need for a chisel to carve your ad in stone. Just submit your classified advert and have it seen by 5000 people on our email list.
Simply supply the title, description, images, price and contact details (up to 3), pay just 10€* including VAT, which goes towards the upkeep of the website and printing the magazine, and we will do the rest.
(Remember: if you’re selling tickets to this week’s ‘Pigs in Space’ show, the email goes out every 2nd Friday, so only post ads that don’t have a time limit.)
Whatever you’re searching for or selling, send us the information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nothing to buy or sell but enjoy browsing the small ads? Pop your email address in the box and we’ll make sure that you receive the monthly email anyway.
