You don’t need to write a novel, to write a good ad. People scan when they read on the internet, so the faster and more precise you can give them the information they need the better.
2. Use Bullet Points To Break Up Listing Descriptions
- You eliminate extra details.
- You help buyers read the best features.
- They are easy to scan.
3. Link Within Descriptions¬†
If you have a link to the item you are selling (perhaps a website, a picture on Instagram, a Facebook Album etc.) link within the description in addition to the website field. Here is a quick diagram to show you how.
4. Use pictures To Sell Your Items
Words can only do so much – If you really want to sell your stuff, you need pictures. Imagine looking for a home for sale on SargesList.
There are fifty houses listed, all four bedroom three bathroom beauties with large back yard – but only two have images. Would you waste your time and look at the listing if the seller didn’t even bother to put pictures up? No.
You’re going to look at the listings with pictures first, then maybe look at the others. Pictures matter, so don’t skip this important step.
5. Fill Out Your Contact Information Accurately¬†
SargesList is about connecting you with military buyers and sellers.¬†Ensure your e-mail address is accurate and that you include the best way for people to get in contact with you.
6. Agree to meet the buyer on or near base
Trust and safety is the difference between SargesList and other classifieds sites. Whenever possible, have potential buyers meet you on base. This ads to your security and to the buyers’ safety questions.
7. Pay For An Attention Getter
They’re called attention getters for a reason, so if you are in a time crunch and have a big ticket item to sell, spring for the extra dollars and get flashy!
