Here are a variety of tips to help your online experience with CirKel be a better one…
- Image file size uploads need to be smaller than 1 megabyte per image. Most digital cameras produce images with a file size much larger than 1 megabyte. You can reduce the file size of your image without substantial loss of quality by using free image editing software like GIMP or free online image resizing websites. Searching the web for ‘free image resizing’ will give a number of results with websites to help you resize your images.
- If it’s too good to be true then it probably is… Watch for scams where ads promise something and require you to pay some money first. Always try to buy local. If possible and meet the buyer or seller in person, preferably in a public location. Be cautious of ads with no phone number. Don’t deal with anyone overseas. Search the web for ‘classified ad scams’, there will be lots of information to keep you safe.
- A picture really helps to sell something. If at all possible, include a picture of whatever you are selling. Also include a detailed description of your item. Remember you can edit your ads, so if you forget to include something you can always login and add it later.
