Posting the perfect Ad on North East For Sale

| Help and Advice, How to | October 5, 2011

If you haven’t already posted an ad on North East For Sale or just want to improve your chances of successfully making a sale through our website, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process.

After visiting North East For Sale’s main page and clicking our Post an Ad button you must pick the category for which your item(s) fall under. Continue to the next step and you will be find a form which you need to fill out details about your sale. Here you can really make your Ad stand out among the others. Here are some simple tips:

- The title of your Ad is the first thing people will see. Use your title to draw people’s attention. For example, if you wanted to sell a brand new 2GB iPod Shuffle, a suitable title would be ” iPod Shuffle 2GB – BRAND NEW STILL BOXED “. This tells you what the item is as well as highlighting the positive aspects of the item for sale. Using capital letters can be good for catching peoples’ eyes, but use them sparingly as full capital titles can be quite overbearing to the reader.

- The description is the next most important part of your advert, as it could make or break your sale. You need to include basic information about your item such as size, brand, colour, condition, faults, age restrictions and so forth. However, aside from simply describing your item, it is always a good idea to include any additional conditions or notes in the case of a sale. These include things like specific pick up instructions, alternate addresses, alternate contact numbers, specific payment methods or emails. You want potential buyers to be able to contact you at any time!

- Tags may not seem important but they are one of the most efficient ways of drawing people to your Ad. Tags allow search engines to pinpoint and target your Ad, thus massively widening your audience. Examples of tags would be; ipod shuffle, ipod shuffle northeast, ipod shuffle consett, ipod shuffle 2gb, mp3 player northeast.

Following these steps will ensure your Ad has the best chance of finding a buyer.
