The time that it takes to post ads on Craigslist can be a hindrance to many would be marketers. Many marketers tend to cut corners just to be first to the market with a product and forgetting that consumers primarily shop with their eyes.
Remember first impressions are critical and you rarely get a second chance to make another. With so much competition on Craigslist today it is vital to set yourself apart.
Here are some guidelines to help your prospect to choose your product or service:
1.) Creative Ad Copy
With only a few seconds to make an impression, you need to write ad copy that moves your customers, yet it must be simple enough to understand. You don’t necessarily have to be smart or cute with your copy. With any ad copy that you present to your potential customer make sure to place a problem statement within your copy that only your product can solve.
For example, you can use statements such as:
-How to naturally cure arthritis…
-Stop Migraine Headaches…
-Make More Money Online…
2.) Place Multiple Ads
Take advantage of the free advertising on Craigslist by making multiple posts. Make sure however to differentiate each of your ads that you post so that your ads do not get flagged as duplicate. If time allows you, post each day of the week so that you can have your ads cover as much space as possible.
3.) Use Images within Your Ads
To make your ads look more professional you should place relevant images into your ads. Not only do images make your ads look better, they also have the ability to set your ads apart from other marketers. Many marketers on Craigslist fail to use images in their ads missing out on the power of clickable images that redirect to their sites.
4.) Keep your ads simple
Short and to the point is key with Craigslist advertising.
Most people do not have the time to review line upon line of text about your product when searching your ads. By keeping your Craigslist ads simple you can place a call to action that makes those interested, link out to your sells page for more details.
5.) Create A Craigslist Account
By creating a Craigslist Account you make it easier to manage each of your ad campaigns. Many marketers for whatever reason refuse to use this step. One major plus to creating an account is the reposting feature. If your ad gets flagged you can simply go back to your account, repost the ad in 48 hours. When you don’t have an account you have to start all over again.
Here are the relevant images to create a Craigslist account.
1. Visit the Craigslist website at www.craigslist.org/about/sites.
2. Click directly on the link for your country or city to proceed to the correct account sign-up screen.

5. Follow the email prompts.
6. Create a password.
8. Access the account log-in screen for future use.

6.) Relevancy is the Key
