We've got another upgrade to Batavia's List (more to come).

The most recent five posts will appear on the home page of The Batavian, giving the posts additional exposure.  If you scroll down to the bottom of the home page you'll find a block containing the five most recent posts to Batavia's List.

Here's a sample of what you can post on Batavia's List:

  • Things you want to sell;
  • Things you want to buy;
  • Cars for sale;
  • Homes for sale;
  • Apartments for rent;
  • Jobs available or wanted (including day labor / gigs);
  • Garage/Yard sales;
  • Coupons for your business;
  • Business sales and specials, new items in your store;
  • Basically, anything related to commerce, whether as a business or private party.

Also, get a full year of free posts on Batavia's List for the super low price of $24.95. Click here to find out more.

Also, time is running out to order your T-shirts. (Join Batavia's List and we'll send you a free T-shirt along with $300 in gift certificates to local businesses).

And the final reminder of this post: We're giving away a free iPad Mini to one lucky Batavia's List poster. Post an ad of any kind by Sept. 1 for a chance to win. No purchase necessary.

E-mail [email protected] for a coupon code to get a free post to enter the contest.

There is a lot to see inside but don't forget your walking shoes because the land is beautiful in all seasons! Already partially fenced and pastured, the large gable barn adds the final touch!  Check this one out!! $274,900

If you're running a garage or yard sale this weekend, post it on Batavia's List for free.

It will appear on our map page.

We're off to a good start with Batavia's list, with hundreds of people visiting every day the first three days since the site's launch. We're approaching 400 likes on Facebook for the site.  Thanks for the early support.

This morning we make a big change in how we handle classified ads and our local business directory. We've moved away from the sites handled by third party vendors and have gone 100-percent homegrown with a new site, Batavia's List.

Batavia's List replaces Shop Batavia, our real estate site and our jobs site.

Our goal was to create a very basic site that acts as a one-stop hub for all kinds of online commerce, from looking up a local business to putting items up for sale, and real estate listings, and job postings, and cars for sale and businesses with promotions and coupons -- all in one place, in one main feed that is easy to scroll through.

We'll also distribute the posts on Facebook (click here to LIKE Batavia's List on Facebook).

The new site also has an easy to use and free way for you to post your garage sales on a map and we've added a calendar of events (more on that to come in a future post). We'll add features as the site grows.

If you're ready to post something, e-mail me at [email protected] and I'll send you a coupon code for a free, introductory ad placement.

Local business owners should make sure their business is listed and the listing is up to date.

Members of The Batavian Club can post for free, and as an introductory offer, we've reduced the price of a Club membership by more than half, to $24.95. The membership includes unlimited free classifieds postings as well as $300 in gift certificates to local businesses, plus we're still offering free T-shirts to new members.
