add a Facebook share button!
Before you do this though, you should make sure that you have done a few things first. Give your listing a good title. One of the worst things you can do is give a vague description. Once you’ve come up with a title, take a moment to do a little homework. Think about the things that someone reading your listing might call of email you about. If you put these details in the listing, you’ll have less questions to answer and more serious inquiries to work with. The greatest thing you can add to your listing- a good photo! There are numerous ways to do this, the easiest is right through craigslist. The next is to add an image using an online photo sharing site like Photobucket, which will generate the code you need to copy paste automatically after you’ve uploaded your image.
Now comes the best part- adding the Facebook share button. You can make your own, or use this one…
To use this idea, you need to create your listing first. Once it’s done, get the link for the page. You’ll need this to make the button work. Go back and edit your page, adding the button code at the bottom, and including your craigslist hyperlink. It should look something like this:
Light Blue: This is the url link which allows you to post on your Facebook page Pink: This is your craigslist listing url Orange: This is the image code you can cut and paste from your Photobucket account, or other uploaded source. Just change the url to your image (shown in dark orange) url.
I hope this helps you get more attention for your craigslist page!
