Craigslist is a free website for Internet classifieds where you may post an advertisement for a business, product, garage sale, pet lost or found, and other related items for your local community. Listings can be cluttered with dozens, maybe hundreds, of advertisements for densely populated towns, many of them vying for reader interest. By introducing subtle tweaks that make your ad stand out from the bunch, you have the potential to improve your chances of getting an answer or selling your piece.
With the amount of accounts you develop, the pace at which you are able to post your advertisements increases. Keep them at the very top of regular blogs. You must build an account and validate it with a phone number in order to post an ad in the services section. The issue is that you can only include one account associated with each number, so if you’d like to provide more than one, you’ll have to get innovative here.
Pay careful attention to those advertisements which provide similar products or services to yours. When you learn what to do and, more importantly, what not to do, this will help you generate ideas for your advertising. There is a great deal of bad advertising and promotions out there. You will stop being a contributor if you pay attention.
Craigslist Ad Posting Service prevents similar advertisements from being posted to you. But don’t view this as a downside, as it helps you to play with your copy of the ad. Take advantage of this feature by pitching your goods or services using various methods and then posting these ads in separate categories. Additionally, by slightly modifying the copy of your original, you can still generate multiple advertisements for each of your CL accounts if you have little time or money.
