Virtual Marketing Systems Advertising Tips
There is little to placing an ad. We have designed the system to make placing an ad as intuitive as possible. Please review the guidelines below and please do not hesitant to email with any concerns, problems and/or functionality issues to Webmaster
These tips were designed for Virtual Marketing Systems ads and the same principles generally apply for eventdirectory.com
To get the best results, consider these guidelines when you place an ad:
To insure integrity of the system we generally require all information be filled in. You may use "na" to indicate the information asked for is not available or not applicable.
Be sure to specify whether you are selling the item or looking to buy the item.
Certain browsers are able to upload images to be available with your ads. Netscape 3.0 and later should be able to upload images. We understand IE 3.02 and later will upload images with a plug in.
- Required Form Fields
Certain fields have been required to insure integrity in the system.
Price has generally be set up for a precise product for a precise price. However, some products/service do not fit precise pricing. Entering "0" will return "negotiable" or "quotable/negotiable".
Entering "0" in the crops and livestock ads will return "Quotable/Variable" denoting that the quantity is subject to change and/or may not be known.
Some categories, like cars, can be searched looking for "Classics". If your ad is for a classic, be sure to specify such in the ad form.
- Years and Miles
Some categories ask for information such as year or miles. If these fields do not apply, that is you don't know the year of manufacture or miles is not applicable to your item, leave these blank. The search details for your ad will display n/a.
- Be honest in your ad
It is best to accurately describe your item. If there is something wrong with it, state this. If it is in perfect condition, boast this fact.
- Ask a reasonable price
You are more likely to experience success if you ask a reasonable price for your item.
- Enter as much information as possible
This is not the newspaper, so include important information about the ad in the specification area..
- Word your ad carefully
Say what has to be said, no more, no less. Be creative. Often, ads with "personality" are more successful than dry ads.
Again, if you experience any problems placing your ad, or if you feel we need to change the way you place an ad, please notify the Webmaster. All comments are welcome! Thanks!
