Craigslist Advertising Tips.
To post ads on Craigslist effectively you will have to understand few crucial rules that Craigslist established over the time. In this article, I will share with you some very important information, apply them and you will see an increase in your live ads on your first day.
The main cause that your ad is ghosted or flagged is that you posted it in the wrong section, always remember to post in the most related section of your offer.
Craigslist doesn’t like links. This can be your first cause of getting ghosted. Remove link and test if Craigslist will approve it. If you can, try to put your link in images or use autoresponders. Just not putting your link in Craigslist ads can help a lot. It all depends of course how many ads you post per day so remember to test and look for a balance.
Do you post more than 5 ads a day? Do you change your IP? You should. Craigslist has really strict rules and changing your IP every 4,5 ads is a good idea. If you have Verizon/sprint card just disconnect, ask your internet provider if you can change your IP anytime. If no, try to apply for some internet connection with dynamic IP or look for some premium proxies or remote control computers in the USA.
Do you post in sections that require phone verified craigslist accounts? The cause of flagging/ghosting can be your account. Did you create and verify account from unique IP, landline phone number? You have to be very careful buying accounts from other sites. There are many providers selling accounts that were created in a wrong way. Many people told me that they’ve ordered 1000s of accounts from some provider and suddenly all of them went a block and the provider disappeared. If you are posting on craigslist phone verified requirement sections be careful about how you post your ads and where. Every flagged ad will have a bad effect on your account.
Learn from your mistakes. If you have found that some of your ads stick, some not, analyze winners and make a conclusion. What was the reason these ads went through? what was unique about them? Did you use other accounts for them? Ask many questions and you will find finally your main cause of flagging/ghosting of your ads.
I wish you best luck. Persistence is a very important factor in posting ads on Craigslist. Be patient and results will come. Apply all these craigslist advertising tips to your next promotion and see if anything change. This information is very valuable and will make you able to take advantage of your competition.
