Copywriting for Classifieds Ad...

3 replies
Hello all,

I'll admit I am no copywriter, just a copywriting admirer.

Anyways, my buddy was trying to sell GTA V, which is one of the newest and hottest videos games on the market right now.

His ad simply read "GTA V For Sale: Call me @ xxx will trade for Diablo 3"

He wasn't able to move it for 2 weeks. He brought it up to me last night and I re-wrote it to be a little more "in yo' face!".

The game sold within 3 hours of the re-write and has had a couple of inquiries on top (keep in mind this thing generated ZERO inquiries prior to the re-write).

~~ Time To Own The Only Video Game To Break SEVEN Guinness World Records (For the best price on Castanet) ~~ - Castanet Classifieds

Take a gander, for the next time you need to clear out the attic.

It seems our flashy IM style works on classifieds.

Thanks,

James
