Putting The Classifieds To Work

by Alex Wu

The best way to get people's attention in the media is to post an ad in the classifieds.

There are several places that you can post a classified ad like a magazine or an online ad website. Any where you post it will be effective in drawing in people.

It is vital that you create an ad that is written well. If you want to get attention then write your classified as if you were a professional.

Be aware of ad types

All the good writing in the world will not help your ad generate traffic if it is posted in the wrong spot. You need to make sure your ad is seen by the right people.

Put ads for employment in the help wanted section. There is no place else that will generate as much employment traffic. You need to include any important information that pertains to the job without over stating the details.

If you have some merchandise that you are trying to get rid of post it in the for sale section. Make sure that you put it in the proper sub sections such as furniture for sale or even automotive sales.

Some people want to do a job for people. Post any job you are willing to provide in the services section.

Ad creation

The most effective way to draw people to your ad is by creating one that will pull readers in. There are many steps you can take to accomplish this.

Short and sweet: Keep your ad on the short side. There is no need to include a lot of words that don't even pertain to the point that you are trying to make.

Words need to count: Make sure that all of your words have something important to say. Putting useless words in an ad will just use up space that you could have used for something more important like information that the reader needs to know. Posting unnecessary things in your ad will discourage people from reading the entire thing.

Keep it honest: There is no need to lie in your ads. People will end up finding out the truth and will not be very happy if you waste their time.

Be sure to proof your ad: You should always make it a habit to proof read your ads. Look for typing errors and other mistakes that may make your posting look unprofessional.

Drawing attention: If you really want to get your reader's attention then you will want to use words like free or cheap in your ads. Another great thing is to include bold and capitalized headings.

If you don't have a lot of money, but still want to get the word out then using a classified ad will be of great benefit to you. There are several sizes and a wide variety of formats that you can choose from before you post. Including pictures and images will be a great way of grabbing people's attention as well.

Before you finish, remember to include your phone number or any other contact information so that everyone who is interested in your ad can reach you.
