HOW TO WRITE A CLASSIFIED
MERCHANDISE FOR SALE:
Name the Item: Begin your ad by identifying the item you are selling by its most common name.
Describe the Features: Describe the item by listing its best features, such as physical condition,
brand name, size, age, color, rarity, or the history of its care.
Name a Price: Always include the price. Many people will not respond if there is no indication
how much the item is worth. If you are flexible, use the words "negotiable" or "best offer."
Your Phone Number: End your ad with your phone number, including area code, and the best
time to call. If you prefer another method of contact, include your e-mail address.
