Tips and Tricks: Lost & Found

In this week's edition of Tips & Tricks we are going to cover how to go about posting a lost, found or stolen item on NL Classifieds and the best ways to get your ad the most exposure as possible to get the items in question returned to their proper owners.


First thing first is to create the listing.  There is a sub-category under Announcements and Events for Lost and Found and another for Stolen items.  Depending on the nature of the item, place the listing under one of these sub-categories.

When creating the listing, make sure you include as much detail as possible about the item, whether it be lost or found.  If you can, make sure you include a photo with the ad, this way other people can better identify the item.  This is especially true when it comes to pets.

Once the listing is posted, quite often if one of our moderators catches it they will forward it to our social media team to ensure it gets shared on some of our social channels.  We use the hashtags #NLPets and #NLlost for lost, found and stolen items on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.  If we don't share your listing, make sure you do!  Exposure in the early hours after a lost/stolen item is crucial!  And make sure to use the appropriate hashtags so if anyone is looking for the items, they can find it easily.
