Promoting Your MLM Business Online? Here’s Your Free CRAIGSLIST Strategy In 3 Simple Steps!
Post By CARRIE GROTH SCHOMMER
Promoting an online business or network marketing opportunity can be a challenge, but it is definitely doable with dedication. How do YOU reach YOUR audience and potential clients or customers? It is essential to take advantage of any FREE online advertising, where the only investment you will have is your time. And Craigslist is great for that!
Craigslist is a very popular online classified advertising site. Many people worldwide use it to sell, buy, and communicate. It started as a hobby by a Craig Newmark in 1995, but has grown exponentially since then. It is now in 700 local sites in 70 different countries. Craigslist users publish about 50 million ads each month, which generate about 20 billion page views! Those are some very impressive figures! Since Craigslist ads are free, this makes it a no-brainer choice to reach a large audience. There are 50 million users in the US alone. As a virtual business, there is no reason why you need to limit your ads to a local audience only. You are free to post ads in any city on Craigslist. However, if you are a local business with a storefront, you would only post ads in cities within close proximity to your business location.
The great thing is that the process to get started with advertising on Craigslist is easy!
1) Create A Craigslist Account.
All that is needed for this is an email address. Sometimes Craigslist will make an automated call to a phone number you provide to verify the account. The call will provide a 5 digit pin # you will then enter into a confirmation box to verify your account.
2) Create An Ad.
This is easy. Come up with a catchy title that will attract interest from readers browsing the site. Read this AMAZING post to get some great ideas on powerful words for your ad. It is also recommended that you add some symbols to your title for eye-catching appeal. You may also include a price and location to ad titles, if you wish. If you leave these options blank, they will not show in your ad title.
When you write the ad copy, be sure to pique the reader’s interest with your text; giving them a reason to want to know more about you and your site. Also, add a link to your website within your content and give the readers a compelling reason to click the link so they will be directed to your website.
Ads expire at all different times, so you will need to keep an eye on your account to make sure you renew them religiously. Once they have been created, renewing is easy with just the click of a button within your account.
3) Choose An Appropriate Category For Your Ad.
Think about what type of person you are trying to reach and where they may be browsing. You can choose from “For Sale”, “Services”, “Jobs”, “Community” etc. Make sure the category matches your targeted audience.
And there you have it!
Obviously, the more ads you post, the better your chance to reach more potential visitors, thus conversions, profits and sales! Craigslist does have some checks and balances in place to limit the amount of ads placed by one account. The same ad cannot be posted more than once, so you will need to make several versions in order to bypass this limit. As long as the post is worded somewhat differently you will be fine. Also, they limit posting ads to three a day before you receive a message that your ad cannot be posted. But, three ads a day is 1095 ads a year, at no cost to you!
