We have developed a feature that allows you to post professional looking ads like the one you see above on Craig's List. This can be a great way to drive more traffic to your listing. We have been experimenting with this tool over the last couple of months and the results are impressive. Another benefit to posting these ads through your CollegeWeekends.com account page is that there are a couple tricks we can show you that greatly reduce the spam and scam messages that are sometimes associated with Craig's List. If you are interested in learning more about this please Contact Us through the site.
In November I blogged about how using relevant keywords in your title is a great way to have your listing start to show up in Google search results which obviously leads to more bookings. Well posting ads on Craig's List is another great avenue for you to do the same thing. For instance, if you are a property owner in Charlottesville, VA and your property is conveniently located to some of the many vineyards in the area, it would be smart to post an Ad on craig's list with a title like, "Albemarle Wine Tour Vacation Rental".
We are more than happy to help with this if you are not familiar with Craig's List. If you have any questions please contact us or leave a comment below on the blog.
Spring is right around the corner and the visitors are about to start flocking to your college town so please be sure your listings and calendars are all updated.
