Business Case: Typical business models in online classifieds Industry and Market Research els  Aggregation of ads / Market making o Distribute the classified ads to other sites – e.g. Edgio like model where Edgio users can create their own classified boards (Crunch board is one of them), collate classified ads – which can be dispersed to other sites. o Platform players – A regular model where the site just aggregates the ads and be the platform for classified ads. o  Buyer focused – Apart from aggregating classified ads, these products are more focuse towards buyer’s needs focused and they give away tools for buyers to analyze the market trend, get alerts etc. (e.g. trulia) While US classifieds industry has its own challenges, the major driver of online classified growth lies in the ubiquity of Internet. Sites like craiglist have succeeded because both the buyers and sellers are online. Indian Classified Industry: Market size The estimated size of online Indian classifieds Industry (as per 2006 data) is estimated to be around $55 million USD (i.e. 250 crores)  Total Classifieds business: o Print: Rs. 500 crores, Online: Rs. 250 crores  Jobs / Recruitment classifieds: o Print : Rs. 100 crores, Online: Rs. 200 crores [ [source] MIG-238, Ramdev Plaza, 3rd Floor, K.P.H.B Main Road, Hyderabad − 72, India., Phone: 040-64574001, +91 9246524001 238, 64574001, www.sldatasolutions.com
  4. 4. Why is the online newspaper industry not able to attract online classifieds business? Statistically speaking, only about 2.5 % of online newspaper readers visit the matrimonial section of online newspaper – they prefer to go to the niche vertical sites [read the analysis/report on the online newspaper industry] The same logic applies to job sites and real estate sites as well – niche matters and newspapers aren’t providing that. Challenges with the online classifieds Industry in India The Indian classified market needs to solve atleast one of the following problems:  Information hoarding: Take rental apartments – even though you know (from sources other than the broker) : that an rental apartment is available, you still need to pay the brokerage! Brokers hoard the info, they almost Brokers own the information.  Sellers are not online, while buyers are all over the Internet. , One of the most significant challenges in the Indian classifieds industry is that sellers are not online. How many apartment landlords are willing to put up their rental ads on a website? Infact, how many landlords is Internet savvy? Very few, I believe. And that leads to information hoarding and bluntly speaking, information is free, while the transaction costs hell of a lot of money. Essentially that means, we cannot have a craiglist like model. Having said that, the majority of online tially classifieds solutions should focus on solving the information problem; and instead of being a pure online model, should also have an offline component. To me an ideal Indian online classified player should have:  a strong offline process to get the content from sellers (ditch the Internet, why can’t people use their mobiles to send their classified ads?)  edgio like ability to disperse the seller ads to multiple places (BharatMatrimony’s IndiaList.com is probably an attempt in that direction?) Few players in the online classifieds market – Sulekha , YoList, IndiaList, makaan, India Property..and many more What do you think should the online classified industry should focus on? User generated content? or offline channels? I look should forward to your comments. What’s next from us? Reviews of products in the Indian online classifieds market. Some more survey on Online Classified websites: Online classifieds industry in the US has stolen close to $3.5 billion from the newspaper industry.  Newspapers industry is losing out the classified revenues - advertising at some of the larger chains has dropped 14 to 20 percent over the past year,  Online traffic to classified sites has grown 23 percent, to more than 46 million unique visitors in July, up from s about 37 million a year earlier (ComScore)  Classified listings in MySpace have jumped 33 percent since their August 2006 debut.
