|Description||college classifieds college market|
CollegeClassifieds.com was first beta launched in 2005 and later revised significantly in 2006 for an official launch, providing classified advertising to all US college campuses. In 2008, CollegeClassifieds.com was relaunched with a more tighter focus on providing specific resources, goods and services to college students as dictated by user collected data.
Two competing purchases have been added to CollegeClassifieds.com: DormItem.com in January 2008, and CollegeMedium.com in November 2008. CollegeClassifieds.com is self funded from revenue, has consistently been net cash positive and has posted net profits in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Content on the site is a mix of original (free) content posted by users, classified ad content from college newspapers (not posted anywhere on line prior to CollegeClassifieds.com) and also from selective aggregated content.
