Special Types

Each ad should carry a predefined "Type" (see image below). Each type is shown as a colorful label with the type name embedded inside it on the ad. There are premium special types (Coupon, Urgent, Hot Deal, Special Offer, Clearance, Local Brand and National Brand) that require payment of a small fee. They are useful to make ads standing out from the crowd.

 Special Types

 

Coupon

It is specially designed for business owners. Use this type when you want to promote business by giving out coupons through the attachment section on the ad detail view page.

 

Here is what the coupon type label looks like on an ad at the Category/Subcategory page.

Move to Top of the List

"Move to top of the list" is a one-time feature that allows you to move your ad from its current position to the top of the listing in its category. Your ad will stay at the top of the listing on the first page until other new ads are posted or other advertisers add this feature to their ads in the same category. Under these circumstances, your ad will start to move down on the list.


Ads on the first page of a category are more likely to get more visits and replies than ads on other pages. Giving your ad "Move to top of the list" is a quick way to bring in more traffic for the ad.


Here you can see that the ad "Lovely Shih Tzu Dog for Sale" is on the third place of the list at Kuxol Pets Category page. "Move to top of the list" feature would make it to be the one get noticed first on the list.

Move to Top1

 

To do it, go to My Kuxol -> Manage My Ads as shown below:

Move to Top2

 

Now the ad "Lovely Shih Tzu Dog for Sale" is placed at the top position of the list.

Move to Top3

 

Here is one scenario that may affect ad currently at the top position of the list. When a new ad is posted in the same category, the new one is placed at the top spot of the list while the original first one is seen being moved down to the second place.

Move to Top4

 

Here is another scenario: the ad owner of "Cat for sale" added "Promotion- First" feature, so the ad is immediately placed at the first position of the list in this category. "Promotion- First" feature always has a higher priority.

Move to Top5

 

Now, if you use "Move to top of the list" on the ad "Lovely Shih Tzu Dog for Sale" again, it is placed above all other ads of the list, but below "Cat for sale" which is associated with the "Promotion - First" feature. It is because "Move to top of the list" feature has lower priority than "Promotion - First" feature.

Move to Top6

Promotions

There are four types of promotions. They can be added to a valid ad at any time. 

Promotions

 

Promotion - First

This sets an ad to the first position of the list of ads in its category at the first page. This promotion has absolute priority.

 

This is how it works: initially, ad "Jewel Toned Sari Scarf" is on the fourth place of the list.

Promotion First1

 

With the addition of the "Promotion - First" feature, it is now moved to the first position of the list.

Promotion First2

 

When a new ad ("Recycled Backpack") is posted, it is supposed to be placed at the top spot of the list. But "Jewel Toned Sari Scarf" remains set at the first place because of its "Promotion - First" feature which has the highest listing priority.

Promotion First3

  

Now, let's add "Promotion - First" feature to another ad ("Repurposed Layered Wood Frame"). It becomes the first ad as it is the most recent ad with "Promotion - First" feature added in the same category. "Jewel Toned Sari Scarf" is moved to the second place accordingly.

Promotion First4

 

Promotion - Border

This feature adds a pretty visible border around the ad (e.g. Kuxol Veterinary) on the ads listing. It does not affect the order of the ads listing.

Promotion Border

 

Promotion - Background

This feature adds a distinguished color background to the ad (e.g. Leather sofa) on the ads listing. It does not affect the order of the ads listing.

Promotion Background

 

Promotion - Special

This feature adds a characteristic yellow star icon right next to the ad title suggesting the uniqueness of the "special" ad (e.g. House for Rent). It does not affect the order of the ads listing.
