Here are some tips to help you sell your item:
- Choose the best category. Your item may fall into more than one category, so make your choice based on where you think customers will look first.
- Write a headline that contains pertinent information. This is what the customer will see while scrolling through the ads. If the headline is interesting the customer will click on your ad and see the whole page.
- Fill in the boxes with all the information, then add anything else you want to say. Try to limit your use of superlatives – but do point out the item’s best features.
- Use PHOTOS - use the power of the internet to make your sale! First, be sure your item is clean and looking its best. Then set it up against a nice background and pay attention to the lighting. Take a bunch of shots and pick out the 8 best ones.
Download the photos to your computer then upload them to your ad by clicking on the browse button on the add images page. This will open a connection to your files. Double click on the photos you want to use. You can even give each photo a title. (Hint: resizing your photos to small size will help them load faster.)
- You can have VIDEO with your posting but admin has to install it. Upload it to Google or youtube and and send admin a link to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take the embed code and add it to your posting for you.
- E-mail copies of your ad to friends.
- If you advertise in the paper, add the phrase: “see photos at slvjunction.com” and this will drive more traffic to your ad.
- Use WORD OF MOUTH to tell people to check out your ad at slvjunction.com.
