Everyone that knows me knows that I am a big fan of Craig's List for advertising real estate and know that I have been blessed with good business generated from this great site.
The reason I have been so successful is because I have written "Creative Ads" that cause the visitor to want to visit my website Search Idaho Homes. I do this by giving limited information and encouraging them to click to my website which is linked to every Craig's List ad.
In an attempt to "Think Outside the Box" I created a new ad today with a new twist. I calculated how many resicential listings where priced under under $150,000 in my market area. I decided to create an ad that had mentioned this inventory plus the low interest rates we currently have and only one photo of one listing was included to get the viewers interest. Visitors must go to my website which again is linked on every ad I write and visit my website.
These kind of ads are powerful because they cause the visitor to link to your website and look at other listings we have. If they really like our sites, they will come back and visit again. If we use Postlet or Vflyer to create one awesome ad with numerous photos and information we don't give the visitor any incentive to visit our sites. In addition we have to hope the visitor is interested in that one home we are advertising.
The Craig's List ad I created today attracts the visitor with an attention getting title and they must go to my website to see the photos and virtual tours. Here is the title I used and a link to my new ad.
