How to Create a Great Classified Ad Listing

| Tips and Advice | January 30, 2014

Interested in listing your products for sale? We are glad to help you at InVincennes.com. In order to get the most out of your classified ad, please consider the following guide:

  • Describe your product or service – Details are very helpful in getting a person to consider your item. In order to get the edge, describe the product or service you are trying to sell in detail and include and synonyms and related terms for your item. If you are selling a branded product or vehicle, you can usually find a good description of the product from their website for tips on what to mention on the product.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words – This statement is very true when it comes to selling your product or service on Beaufort Online. Most visitors to the site would like to see the quality and condition of the product you are selling before they make a purchase. If you don’t have a digital camera to take a picture, see if you can find a non-copy-protected image of the product online so visitors will have an example of what your item is like even though the condition isn’t represented.
  • Provide multiple forms of contact – Having a product that is wanted is great, but if someone is interested in the product and can’t contact you, the likelihood that they will become disinterested increases. If you only check your email once a year, you may want to include your phone number so they can call you instead. You should also specify whether you prefer to receive texts or not if you provide a cell phone number.
  • List a price that is realistic – Most customers want to know what you want for the product you are selling. If they have to contact you for the price, they may not take the time. Also, listing the product as “Negotiable” or “Make an Offer” tend to be too vague for most interested people. Set a range for yourself and offer the high side of that range or best offer (OBO) to let your customers know what you are interested in.
  • Create a Featured Ad – Featured ads reach more customers and have a higher chance of being seen and responded to. There is a monetary investment in listing a featured listing, but the costs will usually be made up when you sell your product.

So now that you have some ideas on how to craft your ad, get started! Creating an account is free and easy, and you can list your product or service in minutes. In order to set up a featured ad, you will be taken through a secure payment process which utilizes PayPal for online transactions. Your payment information is very secure and does not take long from start to finish.
