Advertising on the web isn’t the domain of the biggest players anymore — it’s now the place the rest of us advertise stuff as well. With the web making it easy to let other people know about events, things you want to sell, as well as other ways to advertise whatever it may be, there are a handful of different web apps that can be used for these purposes.

Either you have no control over it or there are no options for you to design your own advertisement to attract more people.

Tackk makes it easy to quickly create fliers, posters, announcements, web pages, and other simple fire-and-forget notes, and share them on the web. It has a beautiful, clean design, and plenty of room for customization. It has its own virtual bulletin board to share your filer, in addition to social network sharing options, and you can print your creations out to stick on a real bulletin board if you wish. Let’s take a closer look to see if it holds up to scrutiny. (more…)
