In order to write a good classified ad you must have the right ingredients. The ingredients for a good classified ad includes eye catching heading, awesome description, no fluff description, and contact details.

Eye catching heading

The heading of your classified ad must grab the attention of potential buyers. You must have a heading that will get attention whether you are using an online classified ad website or a local newspaper, as most people will only be scanning the ads and stop to read when an ad catches their eye. This heading will of course be different according to what you need your ad to do. If you are trying to sell a product such as furniture then you may wish to use words such as Cheap, Affordable, Modern, etc… The idea is to use words that work with the ad you are writing.

If your ad is promoting your website, then you must think of a heading that will get attention that will also work with your website. If your website is dealing with making money online, then you could easily use a heading such as Make Big Money.

Both of the headings above with get attention but you need to give just a bit more than Cheap or Make Big Money. That may catch a person’s attention, but they still need to know more benefits before they will finish reading your ad. Therefore, with Cheap, you can add New Furniture or with Make Big Money, you can add easy.

Awesome Description

Now, that you have gotten his/her attention you must keep them reading your ad. You must keep his attention such as saying your price is guaranteed to be the lowest or that the make money idea is truly easy. Of course, this style of writing does not always work in every situation. Consider selling a used car or kids clothing – here all you would have to do is state the true facts such as good work car, low mileage, or for the kids clothes like brand new.

No Fluff

Some people will tell you to add adjective such as beautiful, awesome, great, and so on and so forth. I hate to say it, but in most cases, these words will not ensure a sale. If you are talking about a used car do, you really think that a potential buyer wants to hear wording such as you will look awesome behind the wheel. They really want to hear about the mileage and the shape of the vehicle, not your creative play on words.

Contact Details

Last but certainly very important are the contact details. Many individuals actually forget to place contact details in their ads. Potential customers need a way to contact you in order to purchase your product or service. If you are not comfortable using your home telephone number or address at least put your email address.
