In order to effectively sell things on the Rochester ny Craigslist, or any Craigslist for that matter, there are a few tips you can follow to make the process speedier, and more successful.

First and foremost, plan and research before placing an ad. You will need to understand how much your item goes for in stores, etc. Keep in mind that Rochester Craigslist is highly competitive, and others are likely selling similar items, so the more informative you create your ad, the higher likelihood of a response. Look up your item on popular review and pricing websites, find the current pricing, and compare pricing to other Craigslist rochester listings.

Include photos! How often have you browsed the Craigslist Rochester NY (or any other) listings, and been irritated that there are no photos? Photos are not only attention getting, but also will help your ad to be viewed as more trustworthy. Take photos from all angles, and keep them straight forward. No artsy filters, just simple, clear photos.

Finally, to be a true master of Rochester Craigslist, you need to write an engaging ad. Start with a clear headline, as it is the first thing people see, and its how people search for things they want. Write a good description, including what you are selling, the items’ condition, anything technical, including added programs and amenities (if you are selling a laptop, for instance), price, and contact information.

When creating an ad on Rochester Craigslist, be sure to put some thought and research into the ad before writing it. Write straight forward, descriptive ads, and you will have your item sold in no time.
