What is a smart tip when signing up for a free account?
When first signing up for a free account on Trailerocity.com, it is smart to consider what name you will be using to represent your company or yourself. Our system can accept virtually any name and capitalization so please choose something that you have considered carefully. If you are a company, you can use something like, “mysmartcompany” or the better way is to use something like this, “My Smart Company”. If you use a smart, descriptive name when signing up, users will be able to more easily recognize you on the website especially when they want to look at other listings you might place. Make sense? NOTE: Vulgar or other distasteful user names will be banned.
How many pictures can I have with my listings?
You can have up to 10 pictures with each of your listings. Be sure to upload your best, most descriptive picture first.
What size should pictures be for best results?
Pictures should be at least 200×200 pixels and can be larger. Sizes above 400 pixels and below 800 pixels are ideal. If your pictures are too large, you may change the size to a smaller one with several free online resources. PicMonkey.com is one that seems to work well for our users.
How can I increase the ability for search engines to find my ads?
Trailerocity.com “fine tunes” most ads for best search engine placement and the website reaches 1000’s of trailer shoppers monthly. That being said, there are really two things you can do when placing your ads that are helpful. 1) Use enough accurate words in your ads to present all of the relevant information about your listing. 2) Before uploading your pictures, name them something accurate like “16 foot cargo trailer” instead of something like “dsc55241”. Make sense? Believe us, it is well worth the extra minute or so required to do these things.
