Sulit.com.ph started only on February 11, 2006 and six years later, they are the Philippines #1 Classified Ads website. I cannot verify this for sure but since they are the first classified ads site, it is bound to be the number 1. They are now reaching out to untapped markets who have not been using sulit.com.ph.
Co-Founder and Managing Director RJ David shares how he jumpstarted the business and established its place in the local e-commerce industry. â€œIn just five short years, what started as an experimental venture into online classifieds with my wife Arianne has achieved unexpected success, and has now become an essential tool for a generation of Filipinos,â€ he says. â€œWe remain committed to providing shareholders, both consumers and advertisers, with a convenient online platform that continues to innovate with the times and keep up with the demands of the steadily growing market.â€
Campaigns cover billboard , radio and TV commercials. TV5â€²s talent Lourd De Veyra is the voice talent.

I am not a user of Sulit so I was lucky to sit beside RJ David where I got to ask him questions about my search problems with Sulit. I think their search optimization is so good that even expired ads still appear in the search engine results.
