Advertising a yard sale online can be beneficial, since consumers often check the Internet instead of newspapers to browse yard sale listings, according to About Home. In addition to Craigslist, users can also use websites and smart phone apps made specifically for yard sale advertisements.
When advertising a yard sale online, the individual should include the date, time and address of the yard sale site, noted About Home. Well-known landmarks located close to the yard sale site should also be included in the listing to make the location easier to find.
An individual should also list examples of some of the most popular items he plans on having at his yard sale, states About Home. Consumers often check merchandise lists in order to prioritize yard sale routes. Enticing a consumer to come to a specific yard sale first helps ensure he is well rested, has more to spend and is more likely to accept the asking price of specific items. Photos of yard sale items can also be added to online listings.
Online yard sale ads should be listed about a week or two before the sale, according to The Fun Times Guide. Shoppers usually check and plan for yard sales about a week in advance to account for weather and to create a yard sale route.
