Fairfield, CA (PR Leap) – Unlike other competing websites, Bay Area Classifieds map link feature is available in all categories, not just in real estate. “We let our users decide whether or not they want to crate a map link to their own home or place of business,” says Martin Manzo, founder of Bay Area Classifieds. The map link lets users control their own visibility. When ad posters create a link, potential prospects reading their ad will get step-by-step driving directions right to the advertiser’s home.

“Implementing a map link was important to us,” says Manzo, “because it helps connect local buyers and sellers in a more valuable way.” With a map link included in their classified ad, the buyer can now just call the advertiser and pick up the item with driving directions already in hand.

Local Realtors listing properties for sale or rent are also excited about Bay Area Classifieds new map link feature. “Providing extra service for our clients is our number one goal so online mapping is an added benefit,” says Ron Brzowsky of Gateway Realty in Solano County. “We like to present as much detail as possible, which saves our buyers time.”

Local businesses will also benefit from online mapping. Linking a map to your classified ad will allow businesses to maximize their visibility. Recent studies have shown that an increasing number of consumers are researching local businesses online before heading out to make purchases. With Bay Area Classifieds’ map link service, potential customers can pinpoint the exact locations of a business in seconds.
