Take your ad to the next level. Our paid promotions offer ideal placement and unique, eye-catching characteristics to help you get the most out of your AutoMe experience. Ads with features receive more replies than ads without. More replies mean better deals and a faster route to success.
There are 5 unique promotions to choose from. Once you’ve chosen the type of promotion you’d like, you can apply it to your ad in only a few minutes.
Sometimes an old ad just needs a bit of a boost to get the attention it deserves. The Bump Up feature is refresh of old ads, making them appear new. It pushes your ad from its current position (for example, page 5) back to the first page. Being on the top page means that your ad will gain better exposure in its category and searches.
The Bump Up feature will reset the post date of your ad; however, it won't extend the life of your ad. If you want your ad to stay at the top for a longer period of time, consider the Featured promotion.
Our Urgent feature lets other users know that you’re not looking to waste time. It places the word 'Urgent' on your ad in eye-catching, red lettering. Not only will it stand out in the queues, but other users will know that you’re serious about selling your item. The Urgent label can be seen when your ad appears in the search results. There’s also a filter option to let users search exclusively for Urgent ads.
This feature is intended to help your ad stand out. It does not change the position of your ad in the general listings.
Our Featured promotion helps you get more views by placing your ad at the top of the search results. During the promotion, your ad will start to appear in two places. It will still continue to move through the regular listings, but a second copy will also appear in the Featured ads section. Displaying your ad in these two sections at the same time gives it a much better chance of exposure.
Only the copy of your ad that appears in the Featured ad section will display the Featured banner. The copy moving through the regular search results will not have the Featured banner. This feature does not change the position of your ad outside of the Featured ads section.
How does the Featured Ad work?
Featured ads rotate randomly to ensure that every ad gets equal visibility. Each page of search results shows up to 5 Featured ads at a time. If there are more than 5 Featured ads in the search results, a random set of 5 will be shown. Every user that visits that same page will see a different random set. When they refresh the page or move to another search page, the ads will once again be shuffled. This random rotation ensures that all Featured ads get equal opportunities to appear at the top of the first page.
Spotlight is a premium spot at the top of the search results and in the home page for showcasing your ad and getting immediate attention from potential buyers. This allows your ad to get all of the same views it would regularly, while also appearing outside of its category to more viewers. To get the most value out of this promotion, make sure you add great-looking photos while posting your ad.
How does the Spotlight work?
Spotlight ads are visually appealing - with big images and clean design to attract more views. Each Spotlight ad is given an equal chance of being shown in all the premium spots, with up to 8 ads being shown automatically to every user. In addition to Spotlight, your ad is also posted as a regular ad. So you can add other promotions to your regular ad too.
Super Ad is the best value for money promotion that we offer. It includes all the other Bump Up, Urgent, Featured and Spotlight promotions with customized social media ad campaign for your advert.
How does the Super Ad work?
Once you apply this promotion, our social media team will create a bespoke Facebook and Instagram ad campaigns for your advert to reach the maximum number of potential buyers during the selected promotion period. So you will be able to sell your car in no time.
In addition to this our marketing team will optimize your listing to attract more buyers and send an email campaign to all our registered users with a link to your ad. You will have access to our internal support team to discuss any further requirements to sell your car and you will receive help from us through out the selling process.
