What do you want?

No matter what you are looking for, you can post an ad on your local page to help in your hunt. Need a new car? truck? camera? engagement ring? shoes? old record album? couch? frig? xbox game? whatever you need, you can always go in and post an ad about what you are looking for. Chances are someone will see your ad, know someone who has what you need and help you make a connection you could probably have never made on your own.

Three tips for posting your wanted ad.

Include a photo. Photos are powerful things. If you can find a photo of what you are hoping to find, it will really improve your chances of success. Google images is a great place to go hunt for a photo, just make sure that you aren't infringing on anyone's copyrights!

Be descriptive. Always go into detail about the item YOU seek in particular, year, model, options, whatever is really important. It will go a long way toward eliminating dead ends for you and can aid in achieving your goal much faster. Also, are you hoping for it to be delivered, or are you willing to come pick it up? Make sure to mention it as the more info you give, the better your ad will get you what you seek.

Name a fair price. Don't lowball in your ad. It just makes people not take you seriously. Research what you are hoping to buy and come up with a fair market value. If you are unsure of price, say that you are looking for all offers to sell that item, but never ask for a ring you know is worth $6,000 and then say that anything over $400 would be too high. Be fair, be considerate and prepare to do business.

There you have it. Another great way to complete that Batman lunchbox collection you've been working on. So, what DO you want? Post a FREE ad on and tell someone locally today!

Thanks for the ads
