Create Free Ads Online

Greeting friends and welcome to Create Free Ads Online!

So you want to “Create Free Ads Online” is that right?  I guess that is why you ended up on my site!  🙂

Let’s get started!

Create Free Craigslist Ads

New Rules For Craigslist

Craigslist tends to change their rules quite frequently, so you have to stay on top of them.

Ad Title

When posting ads on Craigslist.org, you have to make sure that your ads DO NOT have the same title. It will be a red flag for them, and they will remove your ad. Be creative and post different title for each ad.  DO NOT use “Work From Home” in your title nor your ad otherwise your ad, those are RED FLAG WORDS and your ad will be deleted.

Another thing not to say on your title nor your ad content is “Affiliate Marketing

Ad Content

When posting an ad for a business opportunity, your content must not be too explicit, stay as vague as possible.  One crucial thing:  DO NOT include a link otherwise this will be another red flag.

Ok, but how will I be able to tell people about my services or my business opportunity then?

You will need to rely on them to contact you, so that is why your content is critical, it needs to get people curious, so they want to contact you to get more information!

How Many Ads Can I post?

You can only post two ads a day every 48 hours in just one category, and one geographical area.  They will block your ad if you go over that.  I also recommend not to post in the same city.  Keep track of when your ad expires, do not let them expire, renew them before.

Writing An Ad

Be on the same Station than your prospect when creating an ad!  Do you know which Station they all listen?

They listen to only one station:  WIFM

“What’s In It For Me”

In one of my previous article, I was telling you that it is not about you.  You need to change your way of thinking if you want to succeed!  It’s ALL about them, your prospective client.

There are three crucial points of writing effective ads:

  • You must catch their attention
  • You must get them excited
  • Call to action

Remember this anywhere you advertise:  A picture says a thousand words.  Nowadays people are very visual so make sure to upload images that represent well your services or items.

Create Free Backpage Ads

What is Backpage?  Backpage is the second busiest Classified Website in the world after Craigslist!

You can post one FREE ad per email address daily on Backpage.com.  If you do not follow this rule, your ad will get ghosted, meaning your ad will show active, but when you search for it, you will not be able to find it anywhere which means it is not live.

3-  Amazon Services do complete background checks on all the businesses and technicians.  Of course, if your line of work requires a license, Amazon will need that you have an active license and valid insurance.

4-  Next you will set up your account meaning you will choose the coverage location and the services you want to cover 🙂

I know what you think!  How does Amazon Services make money in all this?

Very easy. here how it goes:

Pre-packaged Services:

For a one time service like assembly service (putting a together a bed, mounting a TV to a wall, etc.) Amazon will get 20% for any price up to $1,000.00. If the price is above that, then Amazon will get 15%.  We will get paid directly from Amazon after they deduct their fees.

Amazon deposits payments into your bank account every 14 days cycle and notifies you when they send the amount.

Publish Your Own eBook – And More

So, you want to publish your own eBook! Great!  Congratulations are in order.  This is a big step for you am I right?  You don’t know where to turn as this will be your first time.  I understand and I am here to help.

First, we need to write the ebook so you can publish your own eBook!

Of course Carole but I have to idea where to start with that.

OK Relax, I will guide you 🙂

Choosing A Topic

Just like successful online businesses, the best result is when you choose a topic that you are passionate about, that you lose track of time while you are entirely involved in it!

What’s next?

-Now that we have a topic, we need to narrow it down.

-Ok but I down understand all that.

-See if you are too broad there is too much competition.  You will need to narrow down your topic by answering those questions:

Who, What, Where, When, How

You can also use different free keywords tool generator to help you narrow down your topic and see the competition.

Now that we narrow down our audience we are ready to start writing!

It is not About You!

The first mistake that can send you to failure is putting yourself ahead.  When writing, you need to think about your audience.  Give your audience what they want, not what you think they need.

Hein? How am I supposed to know what they want?

Easy, by researching your niche in Google, Ask, Bing, Yahoo what your readers’ needs are and find a solution to their problems. It is about THEM!

Les get down to business, shall we?

Choosing the right writing software

There is different software option to chose from to write your eBook:

Scrivener: Paid writing platform

Libre Office: Free writing Platform

Pressbooks:  Free to use, with Pressbooks watermarks.  If you what to remove the watermark from your eBook you will need to upgrade to a paid version starting at $19.99. They also have different plans.

If you have already a blog and would like to convert posts into an eBook you can easily do so with Beacon plugin

Writing  for Success

Now that you narrow down your topic and know what you will be writing about, you will need to identify the problems, the concern that people have because that will be what will target your potential clients.

When your prospective customers read your book description, you want them to say “Yes, that’s me! It’s like they actually know me!” They will want to get your book as you have created a connection with them!  You will use that description when you list your ebook to sell.

list

Go down the list of the problems you previously wrote and write about some of those issues with your readers in mind; show them you understand and that you are here to help. Remember you already have the connection with your book description, so you need to hold on to that.

Then to each problem, you need to find a solution and write about it.

It is the general basis of writing an eBook:  identify a problem then find a solution.  It could be a product, or you can teach a course, whatever you chose, but remember, it is not about YOU!

Editing and Proofreading

Before publishing your eBook, you will need to edit and proofread it before sending out your draft.  While the second set of eye can be very costly, you will have to settle with self-edit and proofread unless you want to spend the money.  Your wordprocessor spellcheck will be the place to start.  You can also purchase a Grammar checker which is way less expensive than the second pair of eye.

Publishing Your eBook

You can self-publish your eBook with Google Play

 

You can publish your eBook on Amazon Kindle Publishing – KDP

CreateSpace.com owned by Amazon

Beside KDP, Amazon offers another self-publishing platform called CreateSpace. Amazon has created three different platforms within CreateSpace:  Paperback, Kindle Direct, and ACX to create Audio Book.

What is Paperback Publishing?

Wikipedia Definition: Paperback editions of books are issued when a publisher decides to release a book in a low-cost format. Cheaper, lower quality paper; glued (rather than stapled or sewn) bindings; and the lack of a hard cover may contribute to the lower cost of paperbacks.

Promoting Your eBook
