Use ALL the characters available to you in writing titles

Post by Craig's Helper Steve » Sat Apr 26, 2008 8:52 pm

One quick simple tactic to use to increase your sales is to increase your visibility on Craigslist. One of the biggest mistakes I see on Craigslist is that sellers DON'T use all the available characters to them in their posting titles.

Realize you have 70 characters available to use in your titles. USE ALL OF THEM if you can. Instead of saying " Dell Laptop" in your title, say "Dell Inspiron 600m Laptop w/80GB Hard Drive/ 512 MB RAM - Perfect Condition!!"

By doing this your listings will stand out from the others in the list.

It's simple but tremendously effective. Simply doing this should double and triple the amount of people clicking on your posting and reading your description.

This is a good tip. I never thought about it, but I do much the same thing. Just remember not to use unnecessary characters.
((((((((((((HONDA CIVIC TURBO $2,000)))))))))))))))))) for example.
