Craigslist advertising Tips - A must for Realtor Marketing!!!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Elixir Addons

Recently realtor Rod Johnston asked me to help him with two issues while placing ads on Craigslist.

1.How to add more than four pictures of the property? Craigslist built-in feature only allows to upload max four.

2.How to re-post an ad without having to upload the pictures again?

The answer is quite simple. You use HTML tag to point to the pictures stored elsewhere (like photobucket.com). This will let you show as many pictures as you wish and will make re-posting a breez!

Check out the following real life Craigslist ads. The links we posted before were not correct. Following should work. In fact they all Rock in time for Grammy!
First Ad
Second Ad
Third Ad

These are created as follows.

  1. Email your pictures to an address we setup with photobucket.
  2. We will create CraigsList ad using these pictures similar to the one above. Thumbnail images are clickable which will open full size picture.
  3. Since we don't upload the pictures to CraigsList, reposting the ad is a snap!
  4. Also, there are no limits to the number of pictures (even though we think four is a reasonable limit).
  5. Contact us if you need help creating similar ads!
Cheers!

Hi everyone:

I have been using a great tool to automate my postings on Craigslit. All I have to do is create a dozen ads with several different headers and tell rainmaker how often I want those ads posted. It does the rest. Whether you are at your computer or not my ads get posted and I generate consistent predictable leads
