HOW DO I CREATE AN EFFECTIVE AD ON KADALAND?

kadaland blog

There are four keys to a successful classified ad: Attention – Interest – Desire – Action. Get a reader’s attention, make them interested in what you’re selling, once you have their interest, turn up the interest even more, and then give them a way to take action.

We’ve put together a list of quick and easy tips that will give the best results to sellers:

It is important to make your title clear, appealing and eye-catching.

State an appropraite price or a range: Quote a price, even if it’s high or low. If you’re high, explain why it’s worth it (for example: one of a kind, luxury item, hand-crafted, etc.), and if it’s low, be sure to mention that it is a great deal and also explain why the price is so low (for example: moving, quick sale, special purchase).

The description of your product must be informative enough and must not contain any false information regarding your product or service.

Upload only unique and high-quality photos of your items taken by yourself and not downloaded from the Internet. The better photos you add, the more attractive your ad looks to the potential buyers and the more calls you receive.

Indicate correct contact details for the potential buyers/clients to be able to reach you easily. Try to respond all the incoming calls or to call back your customers once available.

Try to fill out all the fields of your profile page, as well as those of your advert, to let your customers dispose of all the necessary information about you as a seller and the products you sell.

Specify brand names: If you are selling name brand merchandise, be sure to name the brand (and model, if pertinent) in the ad – the more specific the better. People want to know exactly what it is you’re selling before they call and the more information you can provide, the better. Think of it as if you are a customer in a shop, would you prefer to know the specifics of a product or just a general idea of what it is?It

Make your advert as risk-free as possible. Underline that no prepayments are required and be ready to list those delivery services which presuppose payment on the delivery of the product ordered.

Find out what is important to people and make sure you touch on those points when describing your ad; and use complete sentences – they’re easier to read than a series of phrases and random words. Put yourself in the customer’s place. If you were browsing the classified ads, what would grab your attention? What words or phrases would make your ad stand out from the rest?

Online advertisements have been around for years and will continue to grow in popularity in the years to come. It has become more and more popular over recent years, among both companies and private traders, but why should you think about online advertisements when it comes to promoting your service/product?

What is a classified ad?
Classified ads are small text and image based advertisements used to promote/sell a product or service. Classified ads originated in newspapers and magazines but are now around online. Online classified ads are usually longer in length than offline ads, because there is no pricing per word.

Online classified advertising has become one of the highest grossing forms of advertisement.

Below are five reasons why classified advertisements should be used online:

1. Cost effective
Advertising on Kadaland is generally free. For the amount of information you can upload in Kadaland, and the amount of potential viewers on our site, advertising here is extremely cost effective.

2. Listing your advert on Kadaland gets your products/services in front of thousands of protective customers
Unlike local/regional newspapers, magazines or even national newspapers, your advertisement can be seen by potential customers all over the state and country.

3. Use of photos and text
In a classified advertisement, you can get your point over through text, and you can also show your product in the form of a picture. A picture tells a thousand words and this is also true in this circumstance. Having a picture breeds faith among your potential customers, you can say your product is of near new condition, but seeing it is another story.
Classified ads are always short and to the point, however, the reason why they are so popular is because they allow follow ups. This allows potential customers to get all the essential information quickly.

4. Leave contact details
You can always leave your contact details while posting your new ad. By doing this you will ensure that any potential customers can follow up their interest. Kadaland.com allows potential customers to contact advertisers directly on the website by tapping on the contact option to make enquiries on the advertiser’s product/services.

5. Buy and sell locally

Many things in life work best locally. If you are for example searching for a used phone or car online, local offers in your vicinity are often the best solution for your needs. This is why Kadaland offers a local marketplace instead of nationwide classifieds. Get a new job with job offers listed here, buy a car in the automobile category or find a new home in the real estate listings. 

On Kadaland, we highly recommend that you carry out all transactions locally.

The main player in the local listing scene is Google maps, hence its integration into Kadaland. When you list your product or service, your location will display on Kadaland.

Covid-19: Our Response

It’s important to us that our users stay safe and that everyone can enjoy Kadaland.

The health and safety of our community is Kadaland’s top priority. In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19, we urge everyone in the Crocodile city to follow the Government’s advice and stay at home.

But we can still support each other.

It is important to remember that Kadaland is more than just a place to buy and sell goods and was founded on the principles of serving and connecting a community.

How you can help:

Support your community

You can support your local community from home. We are advising everybody who is buying or selling to share as many pictures and as much information as possible about the items they may have. When an item needs to be sent, check our your local delivery or deliver only on days when the curfew has been relaxed. Ensure safety precautions while at it.

Be the good in your neighbourhood 

If you can support your local neighbourhood in any way, try using the Community category. The little things we all do, whether that is helping a neighbour collect their shopping, or just checking in with those who may be isolating, could make all the difference to someone who is vulnerable. 

Respect your community 

We will remove ads that mention COVID-19 or Coronavirus that could be deemed insensitive. 

We will continue to monitor the situation but encourage users to report any ads they deem incorrect, misleading or deceptive by using the report ad button.

Kaduna Polo Club Facts

It is said that the life of a horseman is closer to northern cultures than anywhere else in the country and the Kaduna Polo Club proves that fact.

Founded in 1918, the Kaduna Polo Club, the foremost Polo club in Nigeria, is home to 6 polo teams and is a very interesting place to visit.

It celebrated its centenary just recently with the ‘Kaduna polo centenary tournament’ or ‘Tournament as celebration of Legacy’ on the 13th to 21st October, 2018.

Kaduna Polo Club

The game of Polo is one that requires a delicate yet strong balance of partnership between man and horse.

While the sport is often associated with royalty and glamour, at its heart, polo is a basic battle of skills and strategy.

Who is Giving Out the Best Black Friday Deal in Kaduna?

Black Friday originated in the USA.

As Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November, the following Friday is often observed as an unofficial holiday. Because many people are off work, shops drop prices, usually for one day only, to start the Christmas season. UK shops have since caught on to this trend and it was brought across the pond a few years ago. Between 2010 and 2013, Black Friday gradually built up momentum in the UK. In 2014, Black Friday was the peak pre-Christmas online sales day.

Exactly how “Black Friday” entered the vernacular of consuming Africa and Nigeria in particular is still a bit of a mystery.

Whatever its origins, Black Friday has become nearly ubiquitous in the hearts and minds of businesses and shoppers alike, being used to sell all manner of goods around the world.

Here in Kaduna, only jumia and konga shoppers seem to be having all the fun since many retailers in the city don’t see any need to participate in black Friday.

Well, all retailers in Kaduna except one; Gemz clothing.

If you’re on the lookout for a great deal in Kaduna right now check out Gemz clothing.

The popular tie and dye clothing brand announced on facebook that they would be giving huge discounts on all their products till December 31st this year.

N2500 for shirts and N2000 for T-shirts is a very good bargain if you ask me.

Visit Gemz Clothing more.

If you know any other Kaduna based brand giving out black Friday shopping discounts, please don’t hesitate to share. 😊
