Looking for a quick and easy way to get more attention to your Craigslist Ads? Symbols are an easy way to get seen. When you put a little symbol in the title of the ad such as ☺ ► ☼ → ♥ ♫, your Craigslist ad stand out from the mob of ads that flood Craigslist on a daily basis.
It’s easy as pie to do. Simply hold down the alt key and type a series of numbers and “Blam!”, you’ve got a symbol on your page.
Have fun experimenting. Here are a few:
alt 1 = ☺
alt 16 = ►
alt 15 = ☼
alt 26 = →
alt 3 = ♥
alt 14 = ♫
alt 0162 = ¢
