Contact info in For Sale

Postby FarahShazam » Sat Jul 02, 2016 12:04 am

Summary: supply more ways to contact you off board for potential buyers.

I've been getting lots of requests for new user accounts so they can contact you about a purchase.

While I am happy to create accounts, you'll get lots more bites if you include info that contacts you directly versus through private messages.

This forum gets the most traffic by far.

So we should include our e-mail address, phone numbers, etc. on our posts?

Just a suggestion, but I wouldn't use my main email acct. Something like Yahoo or similar. Also you should disguise the email address without using the "circle a" or "at symbol" as this usually triggers spam bots or web robots looking for targets to spam.

Something like:
John Smith at yahoo dot com or
john.dontsendspam.smith AT
john.smith.deletethis AT
john.why-the-extra-words.smith AT

It should still be obvious to the reader but not the spam bots.
