I created a classified/garage sale type site specifically for my local community only, I thought it was a great idea since delivery,inspection etc. is all local. However, even though i advertised in my local paper for 10 weeks sent postcards to residents and got over 7000 visitors the site didn't catch on. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with type of site and can give me some insight to why this failed. The site is sellinwestfield.com (this link is non meant to promote the site but for reviewing purposes). Any advice is appreciated.
