How do I create a good Ad?
A good Ad will attract customers to your business. It should be crisp and complete! Ads lacking details may lead to unwanted calls/chats or get no response at all. Place such an advertisement where users can easily find it and respond without emotional content and vulgarity. Useful Tips (on how to creat a good Ad) : i. Clear Title: Have a clear title describing the item or service offered in 70 characters or less. ii. Appropriate category: Choose a suitable and relevant category for the item or service you are offering. Our system will change it automatically if found not appropriate. iii. Correct Price: It is advisable that your item or service is fairly or reasonably priced. Research the price first! It should correspond with the market pricing and reflect the actual product's condition. You can also check Plannetads for similar items or services to give you an idea of how they are priced. But of course, whatever price you think your item or service is worth and want to charge for it, is ultimately yours to decide. iv. Detailed description: Give a detailed discription or explanation of your item or service. Provide all relevant details like, How long has it been used? What condition is it in? Are there any additional accessories included? What areas do you offer services in? The condition, make and design, quality, purchase date, missing pieces, color, ownership and similar details can be added here. Usually, about 2-3 sentences of quality information will be enough. v. Clear Photos: Ads with photos significantly attract users. Include up to 10 Pictures with clear images & not containing links to other websites. vi. Video: You can upload a short Video (maximum 2MB in size or approximately 30 Sec in length) describing or showcasing the item or service you're advertising. As the saying goes "If a Picture is worth a thousand words then a Video is worth a million".
