So you have decided you have way too many puppies or that cockatoo you got from a friends cousin is way too talkative for you. Or maybe you work for a shelter and now you want to write a pet classified that will get response.
By the time you are done reading this article, you will be able to write a pet classified ad that will not only get response but will ensure that your beloved pet gets a new home. So let’s begin. How do I start? Well simple. First and foremost you must;
- Get the attention of the reader
Start your ad with an emotion packed opening statement. Here is the important structure of a pet classified that gets results.
- Your headline
- An opening sentence
- The body of your ad
- The closing remarks and contact inf0
Here are some examples of opening sentence.
(a) Handsome, talkative African Grey Parrot looking for a new home
(b) Siamese kittens with blue adorable eyes
(c) House broken, Kid friendly AKC Poodle
After your emotion parked opening statement,
- Make a guarantee or promise
For example “ You will not be disappointed by the quality of this breed”
- Back it up with credentials
for example “Mother is AKC champion”. “ Used to belong to so so and so who did so so and do”
- Ask for action.
For example “contact me now for more picture ‘“Contact me now and take delivery before Christmas”
If you have followed all this instructions, makes sure your online ad has a picture of your pet. Statistically pet classifieds ads with pictures on the ad get better response. And finally please do not write your entire ad in block letters. Studies have also shown that they are harder to read and annoying to a lot of people.
