A garage sale is a major event. You get one shot at it and you don't want to carry any stuff back inside. While the Egaragesales checklist, and the many tips and hints, are full of good ideas to help make your garage sale a successful one, above all, garage sale advertising is the most important consideration you need to think about.

People need to know its happening.

Garage Sale buyers can be quite random. Will they venture out this weekend, or not? They can't get to all the garage sales. Which direction should they go this weekend? So many things can affect what the buyers decide to do each weekend.

One thing I know for certain, based on our Ad View Counters attached to each Egaragesales garage sale ad, and Google Analytics figures, they certainly browse the ads EVERY week. One can conclude from this that the many people who buy at garage sales are looking for reasons to venture out.

Newspaper ads, flyers and garage sale signs are a great way to attract the buyers who have decided to go shopping. But those buyers who have decided not to go out on a particular weekend, won't see these advertising methods.

By also advertising your garage sale online on a web site such as Egaragesales where you can describe in detail what you have for sale, and maybe offer some convincing reasons for people to come to your sale, you increase your chances of enticing buyers to venture out and come to your garage sale.

Remember, even though buyers may not intend going out on a certain weekend, they still browse our ads just in case someone is selling something they've been keen to find. So make sure you include a cost-effective garage sale ad on Egaragesales in your advertising campaign.

Check out the side menu to find out more, get tips and hints or start your advertisement. Check out Past Sales to see how other people have advertised their sales and note which ones have attracted high views.

All the best with your garage sale planning.
