There are 7 different levels of promotion ranging in size from about 500 users to 23,000 users. Obviously, the more users you target the more expensive the advertising.

Why would I want to use a Facebook Ad Blast?

Social media is the biggest new thing in advertising. It can generate visibility and can be targeted to many different types of audiences. It doesn't waste paper and can be done almost instantly. Think about the following questions. When was the last time you looked at the classified section of the newspaper? Do you get a local sale paper with yard sale information? More and more people are turning to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. to get their information. A Facebook Ad Blast will show up on a user's page within 50 miles of your sale and then they can spread the word even further. Read More...

How can people find my ad?

Yardsalesz.com posts ads by State/County and Zip Code Prefix. Visitors can select either or both ways to search for ads and all sales listed for the county or zip will appear on that page. Ads are listed by date of sale with oldest dates first. From there they simply scroll through the list and check the cities they are interested in. Cities are arranged alphabetically and then by zip code.


What is a Zip Code Prefix?

A zip code prefix is the first 3 numbers of a zip code. Usually it represents a geographic area of cities. This can extend outside county lines and even state boundaries in some cases. All ads that are placed with zip codes will have an ad on a zip page.


Which is better to search by, County or Zip?

In my personal opinion, you will find a much larger list of sales if you search by zip as they normally cover a much larger area. Still, most searches are done by County. Several ads coming in have not specified a certain county, in which case their ad can only be placed on the zip page. Most all ads come in with Zips giving them a greater degree of exposure for their ads.


Which should I provide in my ad? County or Zip?

Both are recommended, yet some people don't provide them. Let's put it in the form of exposure. If you provide only one, you will get an ad for each day of your sale on the County or Zip page. That is a total of 1 ad for each day of your sale. If you provide both county and zip, that is 2 ads for each day of sale and your exposure for your sale is so much greater. The idea behind advertising is exposure, in this case, 2 ads are definitely better than 1.


Why are old sales still listed?

Every day the previous day's date is removed moving those sales into the most recently expired category. When a new ad is listed on the page all the expired sales are removed. The more sales that are listed, the faster they drop off.


How do I pay for my ad?

Once you complete your information and submit the form, you will be presented with a Paypal link at the top of the next page. Click that link and choose your payment form. Paypal accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, E-Check, or Bank Draft. E-Checks take 3-5 days to process so make sure you have enough time before your sale date to get adequate exposure.


What if I change my mind?

If you submit your form and then for some reason change you mind about a paid ad it's not a problem. If the payment does not come through from Paypal, we will publish your ad as a free ad. We will remove any additional information other than allowable items from the free ad items. Any additional, text, links, or rain dates will be deleted as well.


What if I want to cancel a paid ad?

If the cancel date is after the sale date, no refunds will be made as the benefit of the ad has already been received. If your sale has not yet passed, please contact us right away so that we can arrange to make payment back to you. We do have to charge for fees incurred in using Paypal services.


How do I post my listing?

Just visit the listing form, the menu grid above, or click this link. On this page, you will be able to select the type of ad you wish to have for your sale. Select the type of ad and the form for that particular ad will be displayed at the bottom of the page. This is a short form and all information is necessary, so please don't leave any fields blank. In order to publish your sale information, we need to know the details so that it can be placed in the correct location. If we feel the missing information is an oversight, we will send you an email request for additional information. If missing information is deemed to be deliberate, the entire request will be discarded without notice. Yes, we do need your name and email address too.


Why do you need my name and email?

A copy of your ad submission is generated at the time you place your ad to you as well as online. Your email copy is your ad proof, so that you may make changes if the original ad is not correct. We also need to know who to direct the response to. We do not complile lists, nor sell your information, that is not our purpose. Additionally, should you find a reason to cancel your ad, the email that you will receive provides an easy way for you to do so.


I want to post a listing, but my County or Zip code is not linked, why is this?

Currently, Counties are listed in all states but not all of them are linked. This is because there have not been any requests for advertisements in those areas. When an advertisement comes in for a County that is not linked, the county page is created, linked, and published at that time and will remain linked. As ads come in, new zips pages will be created, published, and linked.


I am outside the USA and would like to post an ad, is this possible?

No, we are only accepting ads for locations inside the USA at this time.


Are there deadlines for ads?

Yes, your ad needs to be placed the day before your sale. Due to time constraints in creating ads, ads placed the same day of the sale will not be published. Additionally, you really restrict the visibility of your ad by waiting. People check ads the day before, sometimes two days, so time is of the essence in getting the most exposure for your sale. Please allow up to 24 hours for your ad to be published.


What makes Yardsalesz.com successful?

Several things. Have you ever tried to find an easy way to search yardsales in an area? We have, and that ordeal lead to the creation of this much needed website. Most sites are confusing, they're unorganized and it takes a lot of clicks to get the information you want. With yardsalesz.com, simply go to the area you want and print the page. All the sales in that county or zip are organized by date and you can take your list with you when you go shopping. Not to mention customers can list the main items available for sale. With other sites, you have to click each yardsale link. That takes too much time away from getting the deals.


Can I add photos of some items in my ad?

Yes, you may place up to 4 photos on your ad. Featured ads include up to 4 photos. Ad A La Carte allows you to select up to 4 photos at a charge of $1.00 per photo. Use one of those two forms for submission of your photo. Accepted photo file extensions are currently limited to .jpg files.
