Using classified ads for driving affiliate sales is often discouraged because it is harder than other advertising methods. There is a way though, to use classified ads correctly to drive traffic to your website offers and make sales of affiliate products.
The name of the game when constructing a classified ad is to keep the ad simple. You must remember that you are seeking clicks to your site, not trying to sell anything with the ad itself. With that in mind, let’s look at the structure of your first classified ad headline.
The way you want to make your headline get noticed is to use words in it that get attention from your readers. Using a psychological trigger can help you get more clicks to your ad. To get the most clicks from your ad, use words like “cheap”, “free”, “proven” and “shocking”. It is also important that you know which ads are doing well and bringing responses, so be sure you track each ad you submit.
