What you need to know about "Discounted Advertising"
Many other brokers offer "discounted advertising," but what does discounted advertising really mean? To the masses, it generally refers to the out of pocket cost an agent accounts for when buying advertisements from their broker to post to sites such as Craigslist.org.
As a flat rate, craigslist ads cost $10.00 per advertisement (credit). However, when brokerages buy in bulk craigslist usually offers discounts that range from $2-4 dollars per advert. The more the broker buys, the greater the discount. At best, brokerages purchase craigslist ads at a cost of $6.00 per advertisement.
Now, many brokerages will put fluff into a hiring advertisement saying they offer discounted advertisements to their agents. By doing this ,it sounds as if you're getting a discount off of what the broker pays (meaning you should be paying less than $6/ad). When in reality, you're not getting any discount. So, the only time you are truly getting a discounted advertisement rate is when the cost per ad out of your pocket is less than $6/ad.
At Absolute, Agents receive REAL DISCOUNTED advertising on Craigslist well below the $6.00/ad range. Agents also benefit from no desk fee and free website syndication. No other brokers provide the level of discount and exposure you will find at ap-nyc.com
