Your kijiji ad title is one of the most important aspects as it is the first line of text that a kijiji user will read when they see your ad.

You have only 64 characters in which to tempt the user to click on your ad to find out more. Quite a lot to ask of 64 characters but it can be done if you put a little effort in.
