Following our top tips for placing an ad to get more enquiries...
The ad title is vital!
A good title will make your advert easier to find. Include as much relevant information as possible and think about different terms people will search for when looking for your item (e.g. ‘sofa’, ‘couch’, ‘sofabed’).
A picture paints a thousand words. Add multiple photos. Visual ads stand out more and perform better. A good photo can grab a buyer’s attention in an instant. Who's going to enquire about something they can't see?
The devil’s in the detail
Use your description to let potential buyers know as much as possible about your item or service. Keep it friendly and informative. Include conditions, age, special terms, etc. Leave no questions unanswered!
The price is right?
To get a good response, you need to price your item/service correctly and competitively. Check what similar items/services are being sold for to make sure your pricing will attract buyers.
Share on social media and reach even more local people. Chances are you or someone you’re linked with knows someone who needs the item/service you are advertising. Let them know it’s available!
