Craigslist Optimization Tweaks and Tricks

  • Optimize your title

The title is the first part that customers see when they search for particular results on Craigslist. You therefor need to spend some time on the title to make it appealing enough for customers to want to click on it. The wording of your title needs to stand out from your competitors’ titles, but how do you exactly accomplish this

  1. Use capital letters
  2. Use attention-grabbing words such as DEAL, PROFIT, DISCOUNT
  3. Include symbols in your title
  • Add your websites or blog address

The message in the ad in itself may not be enough to draw your lead to make an order. Provide your customers with an address that will provide more information about your product and your business. If you do not have a blog already, consider starting one for your business. It will improve your ROI when used effectively in your Craigslist advertising campaign.
