A lot of people ask for Craigslist ads on here so I've decided to give you my exact ad that has brought in around 3 - 5 pre-sold, warmed up leads every day.
The ad reads as follows:
(Title) 50% of Your Customers Won't Use Your Website | Here's Why
(Ad body) The start of 2013 marked the tipping point for smartphone users. Now more than 50% of people have smartphones which means more people are getting online from their mobile device.
If you don't have a mobile friendly website, you could be losing out on 50% of your potential customers!
Let's face it, most websites just aren't designed for a mobile phone. Sure you can pinch and zoom and scroll to find information but you know your customers don't want to do that. They want an easy to use design and don't care if that design belongs to your or your competition.
We live a world of 'me" and "now". If you aren't giving people what they want, how they want it, and when they want it they will find it elsewhere.
Show your customers you know what they want.
Why do you need a mobile webste for that?
People using their smartphones to find businesses aren't in research mode, they are in BUYING mode.
If you don't have a mobile friendly website, you are handing business to any competitor that does.
I offer cost effective solutions for businesses.
Already have a website? No problem. I can create a mobile version of your website that visitors will be directed to automatically from their mobile device.
Want your mobile site to automatically update with your website? No problem. I can do that too.
When you work with me, you are dealing with a local, independent consultant. That's why my prices are reasonable. I don't belong to a large firm with an equally large overhead. I don't spend thousands in advertisements or marketing so I can pass the savings along to you.
Don't pay for a name, pay for results! My efforts are focused on getting you more business whether that means more leads generated from your website or more customers in your store.
Don't lose any more business. Call me today to get started! 555-555-1212 (use <em> tag to make this last line red)
No pictures or anything else, just text.
I'm not a professional copy writer by any means. I merely crafted this based on my knowledge from these forums and other Craigslist ads. I also can't guarantee your results with these but I hope you can see the value in the ad.
This ad is powerful because it provides valuable information that (believe it or not) most business owners don't know. If they are familiar with mobile, then it explains why they need it instead of just telling them to buy it. By providing valuable advice for free and peppering it with some light selling, people will call you and assume you are an expert. I actually have 2 different people that have called me 3 days in a row that I just don't care to get back to because I've got enough business.
Anyways, I know many people ask for the exact ad copy so here it is. Enjoy!
