News for Businesses and Dealers: Embedding Locanto Ads on Own Website

Businesses, dealers, and private sellers with ads on Locanto Classifieds can now advertise their products and services to a broader audience. Locanto introduces a widget that allows users to embed ads on their own website or blog.

The administration of an online shop can be expensive and complex. Especially small businesses, young entrepreneurs, startups, and private dealers cannot afford to hold and manage an online shop. Locanto Classifieds developed a new widget that offers a solution to businesses and dealers to embed their product or service offers on their own website or blog. This allows small business owners or private dealers to expose their offers to a broader audience at no additional costs.

The widget can be accessed either at the "My Locanto" account system after logging in, or directly on the ad pages under the link "Embed ads". The widget's design can be modified to adjust it to the own website's look and feel. The options are to change the size, colors, background, and font of the widget to allow an adjustment to the own website or corporate identity. An automatic code is then generated that only needs to be copied and pasted into the own website.

"Locanto is a classifieds site that is designed to meet the local needs of both buyers and sellers. Our new widget allows dealers to easily embed their product portfolio to their website. This encourages them to also add more content to Locanto, which offers prospective buyers a greater selection of classified ads on the site. At the same time, sellers can expand their customer base while advertising their products and services on the Internet for free.", says Klaus Gapp, CEO and founder of Yalwa, the company behind Locanto.

In the next step, the widget will also allow users to embed all ads of a certain category on their website or blog.
