Writing an Interesting but Concise Online Ad

March 21, 2011

After completing our sentence-building assignment in class, I thought it would be interesting to practice writing concisely. Therefore, you’re assignment this week is to write an ad to sell one of your possessions online. Choose something you own and write only three or four sentences describing it in the most interesting and marketable way. Vocabulary choices are key. You may want to go online to read some examples for tips. Also, remember to include a catchy title to attract attention. Feel free to comment on other students’ posts, too. I chose one of my old golf clubs and wrote a three-sentence example as follows:

Hit it Longer and Straighter with a Ping 2 Driver

This five-year-old stiff-shafted driver is in great condition for its age with only a few small scratches on its bottom plate and a slight scratch on its face. Its well-engineered, aerodynamic black head and light, low-torque green shaft make it forgiving and easy to use, both for experienced golfers and beginners. Even in its excellent condition, including a new blue and white rubber grip, I am asking only the small sum of 150,000 won, or best offer, for this partner-beating ball bomber.

    This mini-skirt with vivid color will bring you freshness and make you a beauty in this spring!

    Do you want to have clothes for coming spring? Here is a wonderful red mini-skirt for you. Because I have only twice worn it, this skirt is in a good condition. You must be surprised to see such a colorful, silky skirt. Its length is 45 centimeters, which can make your legs seem to be very long and slim. The higher high heels you have is, the better the effect on you has. In addition, I’m about to sell only for 19,900 won, a sum not exceeding 20,000 won. This price is nothing compared to that of other kinds of skirt. If you want to, I can also adjust the price.
