You've got approximately 0.5 seconds
someone's attention with a classified ad.
That is not
much time for
you to convince someone with your ad (s). You
can dramatically increase your results with your ad (s) if you know how
write an ad to get results. Knowing how to write an ad that not only
readers attention, but convinces them is the key to any ad.
Below I have
tips for you to follow when writing an ad,
that can increase your results for your ad. Try some or all of them and
what works for your ad (s).
(1) Look at
ads for some ideas. When looking at these
ads think about what caught your attention as well as what didn't. By
this, you will see what kind of ad that you need to write that will
about who you
want to target with your ad. For example, let's
say your ad is promoting a home business opportunity, then you
only want to target people who are looking for such opportunities. Your
would not be effective for someone who is not interested in a home
headline to your
ad is THE most important part of the ad. The
headline should be no longer than 5 to 7 words. Use "Action" verbs
that catch their attention or ask a question to catch their attention.
example, " Would you like to quit your job?" Type the headline in all
caps or cap the letter of every word to get the readers attention.
(4) I have
noticed that if
you have something "Free" to offer
the reader, this usually will catch their attention right away. For
maybe you could offer them a free e-book about home businesses, etc.
(5) Keep your
Do not give the reader to much information.
Most people will not read ads that are long and full of hype. When
ad, what you want to do is only use a few descriptive words to simply
what you are selling or offering, but still pique their curiosity.
(6) Do not use
all caps in
your ad (s). When you use all caps it makes
the ad hard to read, and is also considered as yelling. Most people
consider this as being rude and will not look at what you are offering.
make sure you
end your ad (s) by telling the reader exactly
how to respond to your ad (s). Keep it simple and easy, make sure you
included your e-mail address and website address if you have one.
proof read your
ad (s) before you place them anywhere. Also,
make sure your web and e-mail addresses are correct and in working
ad (s) will not be worth anything if it has the wrong contact
is one of the main reasons why an ad may have poor responses.
(9) Revise and
ad (s) over and over again until you write an
ad that works for you. You should only test one revised ad at a time,
you will know which one of your ads is working and where.
