Goals You Should Have When Using Classified Ads to Market
There are a few goals and objectives to keep in mind when you are looking to promote using online ads, the very first one being that you must keep in mind is what you are after.
Think about it, what are you after with your ad? Traffic to your site, of course, but let’s get more specific. When marketing your business with online classified ads, your main goal should be to get prospects to click on your link taking them to your capture page or your blog post. That’s it. You are not going to go out there explain your business opportunity or the super healing properties of your latest jungle juice. The only thing you want is for people to click on the links within your ad.
Why is this?
Most people on the classified ad site that you are posting your ad on are skimming through the ads. These people are not there to get the whole story on your ad, your job is to get them to another site or a video that does the explaining for you and that is where you will work your “sales” magic.
So…the first thing that you need to master is a creating headlines. After that you will need to focus on your ad copy within the body of the ad.
Developing Required Skills When Marketing Your Business With Online Classified Ads?
For the most part, when you are marketing your business with online classified ads there are a few things that you have to keep in mind, things like creating an awesome, eye-catching headline is extremely important and those that can do this well will get their ads opened up. Remember, most people are just skimming through the classified ads site, they are not necessarily planning on making a big purchase, they are “browsing” and you need to stand out.
One you find that headline then it is a matter of creating the body of the ad.
Once again, don’t try and explain anything here. This is where you are to put very simple, concise details about getting more information. You want to be direct and you want to generate enough curiosity so that they will click on the link you have put within the ad – the main objective.
You may want to post an image within the body of your ad and make it “click-able.”
