craigslist clickable graphic links

4 replies
hello:
I have seen many craigslists ads that say click this picture and when you do, they take you to a website or optin form. How can I do that?

Thank you.

    I have seen them as well. I think people do that to use duplicate ads and to not get flagged for posting the same content over agian.

    I believe it is just a case of using HTML code to display the image as a hyperlink within the post.

    So something like: <a href="http://yourlink.com"><img src="yourimagesource.com"></a>

    I think asking for emails is another good way to get lots of replies as many people will hit the reply button. You can then automate the response by setting up an automatic vacation reply type email to go out to people who email the address in the ad.

      Yep, he's right. You just use the simple HTML. You'll just need an image you want to use for an ad. PM me if you need help creating an image ad or want more help with this.

      I h ave to disagree with you. I tried doing the email thing offering services. I got tons of emails of people offering me scam jobs or looking for a job.
