How can I get more responses to my ad?

The following are the top ways to increase the chance of getting a good response for your classified ads.

  • After posting your ad, do a ‘social boost’. This will make your advert appear on our Facebook, Google + and  Twitter pages
  • Attach one or more pictures in your advert. Ads with images will appear on the ‘Featured Ads’ section on the Homepage.
  • Make the title and description as detailed as possible. For example, “2010 Ford Ikon 10000 Kilo meters” is better than “New car for sale”
