Freelance Writing a Better Auction Ad

Freelancers are hired many times to write auction ads. These are ads for companies like EBay. As another resource for earning money online auction ads can be written fairly easily with a little know how. Writing better auction ads will make you more money.

The types of writers that will enjoy writing auction ads are those that can take a pen and paper and make you buy the Brooklyn Bridge. These are writers that have the power of description that creates an image that sticks in your mind. Writers that excel at auction ads are writers that are persuasive and compelling, but they also know how to format their work to get you to place the bid. These are methods to use to write a better auction ad.

A title
A title is the beginning of a great auction ad. A title is extremely important for an auction ad, more than the description itself. Titles are what can make a reader a customer that will stop at your auction ad and bid rather than moving on to your competitor’s ad.

You could potentially create one of the best descriptions for an item that anyone would ever read. However, the reader never gets past the title to read the material. Get the title right to get a better auction ad.

Many professional writers will use a tool where they write a title 100 times and choose the best of the 100 created. These is a little extreme for a lot of us, but try creating 20 or even 10 and select the best title of the bunch. You will be surprised at what you are capable of producing.

Description of your item
Describing your item for the reader follows getting them to the content with your wonderfully compelling title. Now that you have their attention, keep it with your first paragraph.

There aren’t many readers that will not read the first paragraph of content. This means your first paragraph has got to be on the money to make the money. A reader’s imagination is stirred and tuned with the first paragraph of your description for your auction ad.

Give the readers the benefits of the item as soon as you possibly can. Let them know why you have the answer to their question or need. This is what persuades the reader to bid on an item. Your compelling and persuasive information as well as tone should shine through in a description for an auction ad.

Photos of the item can tilt the scale for a bid. Use a photo that reflects an item in the most positive light. People can imagine themselves better with an item if a photo is included. Auction ads that include photos are more successful than those that do not.

Freelance writers that create auction ads can do well earning online income. These are techniques to use to write a better auction ad. You need to have a title to compel the reader to your ad. Describe the item to persuade the reader to bid and photos will tilt the scale more times than not to get the reader to bid and buy.
