    What have you done so far to have "limited success" ?

    I have been interested in trying some craigslist marketing for a while, but with all of the information floating around here I have no idea where to start.

    Half the people say its a waste of time, half say you can make a pile of money, and everyone wants to sell you their posting software or services.

    Here's the deal...

    In order to expand your posting, you need to be able to post multiple ads per day.

    Sounds easy, well the thing is that you need to have multiple accuonts that are "Phone Verified" in order to post multiple ads per day, SUCCESSFULLY, without getting your accounts banned. And you can only create 1 account for each phone number.

    You also need to be able to switch your IP's often to avoid detection.

    There are lots of things involved, the best thing to do is really to hire someone to do it for you. I'm not just saying that, it really does take some time to effectively post all your ads, EVERYDAY.

    Good Luck

    I was promoting an affiliate site on craigslist and would do 10 adds a day and made several sales within a short period of time.

    I have since been building my own site that I will be promoting on craigslist. What has anyone else done with success on craigslist

    Pretty good, I was promoting a product that fit well for craigslist though. There are some products out there that wouldn't be a good fit. You have to take an objective approach and look like a legitimate private seller though for it to work. Nothing that looks like a commercial. In other words, keep it simple and target a few cities only, not the entire database. ;)

    Can you use CL to get traffic to a website that isn't selling anything?

    it's really hard to make a post that wont get ghosted or flagged but trust me it does worth of trying much better if you find a good products or nice paying aff network that accepts your traffic ,im working on my own electronic products and another aff website which they accept all kinda traffics but haven't been so successful on cl but i know so many people who are making 2k a day out of this same aff network with CL.

    I've gotten a few solid leads from CL, but far more flakes then anything else. I've never used software to automate the postings and I've never run into trouble with getting a post flagged. Basically I try and make sure my posts are legit and don't look commercial at all.

    I've stopped using CL, as the time spent dealing with flakes wasn't worth it to me.

    I dont know too much about CL posting but I have been looking into it a little bit.

    @ErikJ What is the quickest & easiest way to post 10 ads a day to CL?

    10 a day. That is all I really need.

    Thanks, :)
