How NOT to write an Estate Sale ad.


I was looking at local estate sale ads and noticed this one. I wanted to share what I think is an example of a very poor ad.

The title was simply: Estate Sale. And the description was a one-liner: “Estate sale everything must go lots of stuff Saturday morning starts December 12, 2015”

Her first big mistake was not having any pictures in her ad. Even without a good description, the pics would have been a big help. But both here title and one line description were lacking as well. Both should contain at least some of the more desirable items you are trying to sell.

I can’t imagine very many will take the chance to drive somewhere where they have no idea what is for sale. Look for other blog posts with helpful hints on running your own ad.
