How to make a great advert for your instrument

There are many factors that contribute to a great advert for your musical instrument.

In order for people seeking a musical instrument like yours, the main thing is to give plenty of information in the advert about the condition, age, make and model of your instrument.

Remember that while the text you include will make it easier to describe the instrument and also for search engines to discover your advert, it is the images you upload of the instrument that matter. Wherever possible include an image of the instrument fully assembled as well as one of the instrument in its case (if this is included in the sale).

Make sure that the lighting is good and that the focus is clear in the photographs you include too.

We also encourage you to include a short Youtube or Vimeo video of your instrument. You don’t necessarily have to play the instrument in this video, but the more you can show around the instrument for any possible markings or things that the seller should know about the better.
