Selling Pets on Free Classified Ad Sites

There are some helpful tips for selling a new litter of kittens or puppies, or some newborn birds on your local or even national free classified ad sites.

Target the best prospects

Do you sell hunting dogs? Easter bunnies? Remember to place your ads in the most relevant categories, even if it means creating several different or even different pet ads. Look at other ads, if you see an attractive look or pattern in an ad, use it to fix yours.

great headlines

One of the biggest problems with advertising is, of course, the competition. What your competition does almost always affects your own business, at least to some degree. Take an idea or two from your competitors’ snappy, original headlines and come up with some of your own. A headline can definitely make or break a classified ad.

keep body short

Keep your ad short but packed with information. Describe the type of animal, any distinguishing features you know pet owners look for, and provide a phone number. Half the job is done if you can get them to call or email with a pet inquiry. The good part is that most pet owners take their responsibilities seriously, once someone is in the market for a puppy they are already prepared to commit and will likely do so as soon as possible.

monitor your ads

Need a way to control which ads work and which don’t? Try using a different email address for different ads, that way, when one ad seems to blow the others out of the water, you can always go back, review it to see what made it such a winner, and emulate it in future ads.

All of these methods can help you create effective ads for selling a litter of fur babies ready to rehom.
