Course Description

Are you losing sales daily from poor Craigslist Ads?

That's a question not a lot of people ask enough.  

There are 20 services categories on Craigslist. Most of the 1000s of businesses who advertise on Craigslist have no experience with Advertising.  The sales, real estate, and jobs sections are also vast.

Just understanding the basics of Advertising will help you gain a powerful edge over your competitors and get new customers calling you first.

In this course I teach you basic advertising principles, and then specifically delve into the 3 parts of the Craigslist ad:

  1. The Title
  2. The Image(s)
  3. The Body Text

I teach you how to write Titles that get people to click, and create Images and Body Text that get people to call.

If you're ready to learn, I'll see you on the inside!
