If you would like for your Craigslist video ads appeal to a targeted audience in an effective way you will have to give a deal of effort. In this blog post I will cover a simple trick that will help your ad to stand out from other advertisers.

There is a chance that you may have seen some really cool video ads on Craigslist and you simply want the steps to doing the same for your purposes. The process is actually very simple.

Follow these steps to setting up your Craigslist video ad and you will easily be seen as a  Craigslist advertising pro.

Remember that Craigslist plays close attention to the embedded HTML attached to their ads.

Most people think that a Craigslist video ad is simply placing a hyperlink to Youtube within your Craigslist ad. However, by following these simple steps you will be able to get more effective results from your Craigslist video ads.



While there is no way to get around the embedded HTML restriction, there is a  hidden way to post video. This trick is like a simple loophole.

Craigslist allows hyper-linked images in their ads. As you will see in the steps outlined below, we will use this fact to our advantage!

  1. Create and upload your video to YouTube.
  2. After your video has been uploaded to YouTube, navigate to your private YouTube page –> Click “Share” –> Then Click “Embed” Copy the code that YouTube gives you and paste into plain text program. Save this document.
  3. Take a snapshot of your YouTube Video page. Route to your YouTube Video page and press “Alt + Print” on your keyboard. This will snapshot your page.
  4. Open a photo editing program (exe: Paint) and press CRTL + V on your keyboard pasting your snapshot into the editor. Use Paint’s crop feature to crop your photo so that only the video image appears.
  5. Next, use a free photo host (exe: “photobucket”) to upload your picture online. After you upload the picture, save the image URL so you can find it later.
  6. When you create your Craigslist ad, type this HTML code into the ad. Replace the parts in quotations with your saved image URL and Embed code.
