Classified Ad Not Selling? Here's a couple Tips!

When placing your classified ad, check to be sure your item is in the correct section.

I moved about 20 items today that were mis-classified (parts in the motorhome, toads & tow vehicles sections, toads in the tow vehicles section & visa versa, towables in the motorhome section...etc.).

Searchers are, most likely, looking in the section they expect an item to be in. When it isn't, they don't think to check other sections. They're missing out on a prime item you have for sale & you're item is languishing in a section a searcher wouldn't think to look in....not selling.

Ads with pictures are viewed more than ads without. Take advantage of being able to upload pictures, both outside & in for RV's. Make sure, if they're taken by a cell phone, you've rotated them before uploading so they don't display sideways.

Hopefully, these few tips will help you sell your item more quickly.

Lori,

Where IS the classified ad section? I thought we had one here, but I can no longer find it.

Thanks.

Duh! Thanks. Also, thanks for the tips above.

Since the Lake Weir Living Community banner ad at the top features green grass, and the top tool bar has a green background. My mind's eye just melded it all together. You try to ignore all the ads when you use these forums, but sometimes you do that too well.

The classified section is not on the app. The app is for basic forum use only.

Everything else is available on the full site.

My ad has been up for a month. It is now on page 4 for Class A.
640+ views. No PM's, no e-mails, no comments.
I don't even see a way to comment or bump it to the top of list.
I expected to get some reply. I have good photos and description.

Any other tips to share?

There isn't a way to bump it, unless you remove it & re-enter it.

As far as tips, how's the price? Is it in line with others of the same age/mileage/mfr? It does seem to be a buyer's market, as there are a lot of Class A ads here.

It's a one of a kind as far as mfr. on this site. It's a Barth.
Very few in the age or price range of $10,000 to compare.
It's a classic, top quality coach. 80K miles.

I know it's a narrow market, but still surprised there is zero interest from such a wide audience. I will be trying the local market on Craigslist next.

Thank you for your interest.
