Having your car listed online or in the classifieds is just one small part in advertising your car.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of vehicles just like yours. To get a good price for your car, you will need to not just stand out, but make your car desirable to potential buyers and make them want your car.

This is a great example of a detailed and concise account of the car for sale:
Tip: Don’t be afraid to list features in the vehicle comments, as some online car ads poorly show what is actually fitted to the car.
Advertising your car without photos is almost impossible. Selling your car with low quality or bad looking photos can be just as bad.
Quality vehicle photos are the best way to attract potential buyers and to make your car standout from the crowd.
Tip: Try and find a location that gives you a plain background. Busy backgrounds can distract.
One of the most overlooked areas for vehicle photos is the interior. If you don’t have photos of the interior, buyers are likely to move onto the next car as they wonder if you have anything to hide like wear and tear.
Make sure you include photos of the front and rear seats, dashboard, and anything that can show the optional equipment or trim level. Photo’s of additional keys and log books are very beneficial.
Tip: Make sure you have plenty of light, dark interior photos make your interior not as inviting.
Buyers appreciate being able to see a photo of the VIN on the car, a photo of the km’s on the car and also a shot of the engine bay. This lets buyers know that the details in the ad are correct and that the engine bay has been maintained.
