for your Lawn care Business
To Start You might be asking?
What is Craigslist?
Craigslist is the largest free online
classifieds site
Why should you use Craigslist?
50,000,000 searches PER DAY
40,000,000 new ads per month
Needless to say
Craigslist gets a LOT of eyeballs
Today we are going to learn
How to list your Lawn Care Business
on Craigslist for FREE
To send you
New Lawn Care Customers
Without making all the common
mistakes
Let's get started
First you need to set up a Craigslist
account
https://accounts.craigslist.org/signup
Then create your ad
Craigslist wants to categorize your
ad
Choose
"Services Offered"
Then
"Farm and Garden Services"
Next Craigslist will want to know
which area to show your ad
Pick the one you service
With the highest population density
Next Craigslist wants you to create
your ad
Here are my Craigslist ad writing tips
First make your ad time sensitive
Include a deadline
People need a reason to ACT now
Or they are less likely to do anything
You see this done ALL THE TIME
with car dealerships and furniture
stores
You need to be doing the same thing
Next
Give them something for FREE as a
bonus
Instead of discounts
Make it a Craigslist only special deal
too
That gives you the perfect reason for
listing your ad there
I will show you an example
advertisement as we go along
Here is the Craigslist ad creation
screen
Enter your ad title and ad copy
Do not check the box to show on a
map
Make sure to pre-write your ad
BEFORE you open Craigslist
That way you can just copy and
paste it in
For your Zip code enter the one
With the highest population density
that you service
On the maps screen select
"do not show on maps"
Next you need to add pictures
Just like other services
Pictures matter big time on
Craigslist
They will make you more sales
So use them
Craigslist uses the first picture you
upload as the featured image
Make the first one your logo
Then add as many good photos of
your work as possible
Pick the best homes you cut
Take the photo right after you cut
their grass
Do it on a sunny day in the morning
Include amazing landscape projects
you have done
You can just snap some pictures
with your iPhone or Android phone
Craigslist lets you add up to
24 pictures
Add between 5 and 10 pictures
Let's look at our final ad
To Recap
Craigslist gets an enormous amount
of eyeballs
Craigslist is absolutely free so you
really have NOTHING to lose
Make your Craigslist ads time
sensitive offers
Include Pictures
Remove your ad when your offer
"expires"
Tweak and Re-list regularly
Use these Holidays as reasons for
