What do you think of this craigslist ad... EDITED...Again



I can help you with any daily chores or run your errands. 

I have my own reliable transportation.

Fees are negotiable based on your needs and budget.

I can cook, clean, wash and fold clothes, take care of pets, help organize the home, clean out a garage, rake, blow leaves, care for children, pick up dry cleaning, grocery shop... any house hold need.

I am a house wife and mother of two just trying to help make ends meet.  I enjoy the idea of assisting others in their daily routines.  I know how helpful it can be sometimes to have an extra set of hands willing to help you out.   I am very familiar with homes that have small children!  I have lived in the Snellville/Lawrenceville area for the last eight years and am familiar with the area making it easier for me to help you out.  I will always try my hardest to meet your needs as far as times and days needed.  I have a very good work ethic and can be relied on, particularly in keeping to a schedule and time frame.  Thank you for taking the time to read my ad!  Feel free to email me with any questions.

  • In the beginning sounds more like a personal ad.

  • I agree you need to state what it is you are going to do up front.

  • Agree with ^^^^^ above....too many personal details. There are some freaks out there and you do not want them to know anything about your personal life, especially your children.

  • The first part is overly repetitive, and the lower part is missing punctuation in at least one spot, and has at least one spelling error.

  • You give way too much personal information. Say what you do in the beginning. Too wordy.

  • Snellville/Lawrenceville--are you a fellow Georgian like me? I live in Alpharetta!! I think your ad is great, a bit long winded though. That would be the perfect answer to an ad looking for a home assistant.

  • If it's one you're placing, it needs major editing. If it's one you're looking at, it sounds like someone honestly desperate to make some money.

  • I don't have any issues with it. Sounds like it might be something that may appeal to others who are very busy and could use a hand or possibly even seniors who just can't do it themselves.
