RyeAds.com – The Big Push

So RyeAds.com is pretty well done now. The site functions. Ryerson students and staff can post ads, edit them, and delete them. Anyone can see posted ads, and anyone can reply to them.

The idea is that RyeAds.com will be the first place any Ryerson student or staff member goes when looking for some used item they need: text books, bikes, cars, rooms to rent, anything. I think it can be a great boon to the school community, and even be a place to find on-campus jobs and events easily. The problem now is getting the word out.

And I thought programming the site from scratch was hard! I’ve been contacting school groups, departments, school papers, resurrecting my twitter account to send some carefully targeted tweets… I’m trying to think of anything I can to get the word out about this site.

I’m noticing a lot of page views, but not a lot of ad posts. Well, I’m away for the weekend. Maybe I’ll come back to see a little blip of burgeoning activity on Ryeads.com. Maybe some new classified ad will be posted and replied to by the time I get back. That’s three days Ryerson. Let’s see what you can do in that time.
