Tips for Running CPA Offers on Craigslist: Part 3

Previously we’ve seen some ways to get your ads on classified ad sites to stay there and also to make a maximum amount of money while minimizing problems. Here are some final tips on how you can run successful affiliate campaigns by using classified ad sites:


  • Look at the other ads


When you want to put ads on Craigslist or any other classified ads site, the first thing that you would need to do is to take a look for yourself about how all the other ads in the section look like. Look at the titles, the formatting as well as the wording used in the ads. Do people post pictures? Do they post contact information in the ad? What words or expressions are used more often? These are all things that will help your ad look normal and make it less likely to be flagged or reported as spam. Also, you should obviously avoid making any outrageous claims in your ad to draw attention to it such as “Get a free house!” or things like that. If you do, it would probably be flagged as spam very quickly.


  • Use a local IP


Classified ads sites such as Craiglist and Backpage are mainly designed for local people to post local offers. So if you post an ad in a city that is not yours, you will need to use an IP address that is located in the area that you are targeting. You might not need this for all the classified ads sites, however Craigslist is known to be very strict regarding this and your ads in many categories will not appear if the IP address that you are posting from is not local to the area. To solve this problem, there are various workarounds. You could use a proxy, or a VPN service that will give you an IP address in the area where you are intending to post your ad.


  • Don’t mislead people or make false promises


Selling something from a CPA offer is one thing. However, deliberately misleading people by making false promises is another. Examples of this would include: promising someone a job if they fill out a survey, telling someone they are approved for a mortgage if they get a free credit report from your offer, etc. With some creativity, there are quite a few ways that you can promote CPA offers on classified ads sites without promising people things that don’t exist.


  • Check the rules for the offer you are promoting


Many affiliate networks recognize that classified ads sites are an important source of traffic and are used by thousands of marketers. However, some may have specific rules as to what kind of ads can be posted, as well as the sites they can be posted on. On some offers, classified ad traffic may be banned altogether, while on some you are not allowed to direct link to the offer itself. In any case, make sure you check the terms of every offer you want to promote before starting a campaign.

Build A Better Sales Page

Build A Better Sales Page

If you’re building your online business around selling products rather than ad revenue, you’re going to need a sales page. A sales page is exactly what it sounds like – a page designed with the specific intent of selling a product. There are a few elements that any sales page should have.

The Headline

The headline at the top of the page should give the visitor a clear picture of what’s on the page, and whether or not it’s what they’re looking for. Use a large font, and make sure the headline is concise, and informative.

Sub Headline

You might also want to include a sub headline that gives a little more detail about the product found on that page. If you don’t go with a sub headline, make sure to include a lot of detail in the first paragraph under the headline. You want to give your customer all the information they need to decide whether the product on that page is of interest to them as quickly as you can. You don’t have to make the sale in the headline and the first paragraph, but you do have to get the customer’s attention.

Draw Them In

Instead of simply listing off the product’s features, try telling a story about the product, or presenting the information in an interesting way. If you can get the customer interested in reading about the product, the chances that they will actually buy it will go up significantly.

More Sub Headers

If you didn’t use a sub header at the top of your sales page, you should still use them throughout the rest of your sales copy. Section the page off into easily consumed parts, and put a sub header above each so the reader knows what to expect from the next few paragraphs.


Be sure to include a guarantee about what the product will do for the customer. Don’t make outrageous claims with your guarantee. Keep it reasonable, and focus on the most attractive benefits of the product, and your guarantee will help to make sales.

A good sales page can make the difference between selling a lot of product and selling next to nothing. Be sure to keep these tips in mind while setting up your sales page, and you’ll be on your way to more sales in no time.
