On December 27, 2020 Robert Cain Founder of some of the largest firearm sites out there. Announced the beta version of his new Free Firearm Classified website called ArmoryClassifieds.com. Inviting only 25 people to start beta testing looking for bugs, slow performance areas and ideas for improvements.
As Robert is not only heavily known in the marketing world from his work at Google Inc. He’s furthermore known for his 11m member site AuctionArmory.com This past Monday Jan 4th, we had an opportunity to grab a quick interview with Robert to get more information on this classified site.
He says “The idea for a classified style site was always requested from his Forum site ArmoryFourms.com. Probably 1000+ a week would contact support asking about selling by state or location. However, the build it out for a classified add-ons so to speak. To this level would be extremely heavy. Robert says, I designed all my website to do it’s job and do it very well. So, this classified listings style will need to be looked at as it’s own platform.
“To simply add in a classified area to forums or another one of my websites, just wasn’t going to work.” As he gave me a quick tour of the new site. I asked about the main competitors and any areas of the site that really stand out.
He says, “I’m going to introduce features that my competitors have been rejecting for sometime now. Real time listing analytics, ways to increase your overall sales, giving promotions back to the firearm community, etc. Other social media sites offer this and obviously it’s working! Those competitors you’re talking about have already offered millions to sell and I am just in the beta version.”
As we wrapped up the interview I asked If the beta was still online. Says he is still allowing people to sign up and join the beta version of armoryclassifieds.com. It will be in beta for the next 2-3 weeks before the official launch. The beta users will be grandfathered in and remain under a free for life account.
