Have a successful Yard Sale
Every weekend, offers a new opportunity for people throughout the country to de-clutter, and make a little extra money while doing so. Each weekend, thousands of Yard Sales, Garage Sales and Estate Sales are held throughout the country. For the people holding these sales, the trick is getting the word out and getting as many people to come to your event as possible. Getting a good turnout to your Yard Sale means advertising. In the past, this meant simply buying some cardboard and a black magic marker, writing “Garage Sale” with an arrow pointing at your house and sitting back to wait for the crowd. This is still an effective way to advertise your sales.
However, people are becoming a bit more creative with their signs. If you can “jazz up” your sign, and draw attention to it, your turnout will likely be better than if you simply scribe “Yard Sale” onto a piece of cardboard. If you are not artistically incline, there is a service on the internet that will do the “jazzing up” for you. The web site http://www.sassysigns.
com specializes in creating bright, colorful signs that are sure to draw attention. Another method that is used to advertise Garage Sales is newspaper ads. This is a less often used method because it can be expensive. The cost of a simple newspaper advertisement can be as much as $50.00, though they are usually closer to $30-$40. Since at many sales, the seller is happy if they make $100.00, a $40.00 newspaper ad cuts a bit heavily into the bottom line of most sales. A third method of advertising your Yard Sale is to use online resources. There are numerous websites dedicated to advertising Yard Sales, Garage sales, etc… One of the better sites is http://www.
YardHopper.com. For a mere $6.00, sellers can advertise their Yard Sale, Garage Sale, Estate sale and even Online Sales; which are free. Finally, there is the tried and true “Word of Mouth” option. Sellers can simply tell their neighbors, family and friends and hope that the news circulates to as many people as possible. This is the fastest, easiest and cheapest option available. Whichever advertising options the seller chooses, nothing beats the satisfaction of counting your money after a successful sale.
