7 Useful Tips for Your Ads on Boatshop24
Do you want to receive many leads for your ads on Boatshop24? We have 7 quick and easy steps to maximise your results.
1) Add Many High-Resolution Images and Videos
Make an excellent first impression by uploading many high-resolution pictures of your boat. Ads with 4 or more photos receive up to 8 times more enquiries. Take pictures of your boat from multiple angles, including the interior. To convert even more potential buyers to enquire, embed a video short tour of your boat to really show off its best features.
2) Translate Your Ad Description into Another Language
Our website is available in 16 different languages which means that people who want to buy a boat can view your ads from all over the world. Do you want to reach an international audience? Then translate your ad into another language. Everything is automatically translated except for the ad description as it is written by YOU. We recommend you to have your ad description in English and another language. You can simply add your tranlation beneath your text in the “description field”. In that way you can reach a broader and more international audience.
3) Put As Many Details As Possible
If you want your ad to look professional and to receive more customer enquiries, add as many details as possible. Statistics prove that ad descriptions with more than 500 characters receive more leads. For many people, buying a boat is a big investment that takes a lot of consideration. Boat buyers therefore always want to gather as much information as possible. An extensive description helps the potential buyer to make a more informed decision whether to enquire. Less is certainly not more as brief descriptions can often look more suspicious. Do not forget to include details such as equipment, insurance, transport or condition. These extras can be real deal breakers.
4) Be Consistent Regarding Words and Characters
Use exactly the same terms (incl. space characters and word order) for:
-your ad title (comprised from your chosen category and the entered model name)
-title of your photos (it must be the same as the ad title. If you hover your mouse over the picture you can see the name of the photo.)
We also recommend using the same terms in your title throughout your ad description. Your ad is more likely to appear higher in search results if the relevant search terms (make, model etc.) are consistent throughout your description.
5) Set a Reasonable Price
Boat traders want to sell their boat at the highest possible price. However, your price might be too high which makes it difficult to sell your boat quickly. The boat market is currently stable and showing big signs of improvement over the last few years. This however does not apply to all countries. If your boat has been on the market for a long time, a small change to the price can sometimes make a big difference. We also recommend to compare the prices boats that are similar to yours. Search for the same model on Boatshop24.com and compare the prices.
7) Upgrade Your Ad
You can always upgrade your ad to make sure that your ads receive a much higher exposure. Premium and Platinum packages lead to the highest response with 13 leads per ad on average. Upgrade your ad now.
8) Check Your Spam Folder and Contact Details
As simple as it sounds, even small careless mistakes in your contact details can lead to missing enquiries. Is your inbox full? Did you check the spam folder? We recommend to add [email protected] to your directory so that you can reply to e-mail enquiries immediately and no potential lead enquiry will be sorted in your spam folder.
