View Full Version : Would You Trust a Stranger Inside Your Home?

07-10-2009, 09:12 AM

This is the first draft of an ad I'm working on for CraigsList. The headline of the ad would read "Would you trust a stranger INSIDE your home?" (And of course, the contact info would not be blurred in the ad!)

Any suggestions or feedback would be tremendously appreciated. Thanks!

I like the ad. Whether or not it works on Craigslist remains to be seen.
But what the heck it's free advertising give it a shot.
Good Luck!:D

I'd think you should make two variations of it. Maybe change one element. Then test them out on craigslist and see which one brings in more calls.

Then do it again by changing another element.

It will be interesting to see what you come up with.

That is clever!

I like that!

Yep, I do have another variation that I'm planning on running mid-week. As has been said, there's a lot of questionable effectiveness of Craigslist, so I'm not going to rely solely on CL for advertising.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I do appreciate it!

I went to post on craigslist my gutter cleaning company and cant find where to put a pic. I post under Services__>household.... Any ideas? There is no picture button either.

I think you need to insert it with html code. So you host the image on your website and link to it in your ad.

Something like this

Would create this:
