French Small Business Classifieds

The quickest way to make your business thrive with the help of French classified

It is believed in France that small business classified advertising pushes forward unnecessary and needless things or it helps only to find cheap bargains. Nobody is going to deny this fact however it is also important to realise that even one sentence in a classified can become the start of a big profit corporation and we have to admit that this phenomenon has happened more than once.

One should also admit that using online classifieds is an inexpensive method to increase your sales and number of customers. Sometimes this type of classified advertising is much more reasonable than costly display ads you just have to learn how to handle the power of it. That is why many a prospering company together with small businesses, depend basically on online classifieds in France.

However to write small online classifieds is a real art thus amateurs won't be able to cope with this job. It takes time and grit and of course an exact set of rules and suggestions. Remember only professionally written classifieds make good money.

Follow the tips and suggestions
In order to write a competitive ad you should think of some leading words that will catch the reader's attention from the very beginning. Don't focus on an eloquent description of details but use conspicuous, main and preferential aspects of your product or service. First words, that's what is really important in creating small online advertisements. The lead words have to grab the reader's attention and make him excited and interested in it. Hit the mark!

"Emotional appeal" is another step to writing a good ad for example advertising items of clothing you should remember that people are striving for fashion and good quality fabric, for those in search for a domestic electric appliance words such as reliable and secure provide the potential buyer a firm guarantee of quality. However it is better to concentrate on benefits rather than features. Promised profit will make your ad weighty!
However do not promise the reader more than you can give in order to entrap and deceive him or her. For example never say your company is able to make and install new windows within one week while you know exactly it will take you a month or so. Using too many adjectives in superlative degree can make your ad sound unfeasible and suspicious thus this can even alienate your buyer rather than attract them. Do not give false promises while advertising in France!

When your advertisement is almost ready read it, see if it needs polishing, hone it in such way it looks informative and exciting, adding the most potent and evocative words.

Choosing a heading for your ad can be also a challenge because it can happen to match two or more of the available categories. For example you have a product that can refer both to Health and Beauty or Sport categories and you can afford placing your ad under two of the suitable headings it can be advantageous and will promote your business even further.
