Craigslist Posting At It’s Finest!

The day has changed with craigslist and it is getting more and more difficult to post ads on craigslist. If you are attempting to post many ads on craigslist, to be honest… it is not going to happen unless you hire a Craigslist Posting Team.It’s 2014, going on 2015 and Craigslist is putting up more and more filtering systems to stop you for posting more than 3 ads every 2 days.You may have heard of “Ghosting”, “Flagging”, “Auto-Flagging”, “Flagging”, “Captchas”, “PVAs” and people making “Tons of Money” on craigslist.Well every single one of those things are true. Ghosting happens when you abuse your craigslist account and post over 3 ads a day and do not follow the “post 3 ads every 2 days” rule.

Ghosting means that even though in the backend of your account your ad says they are alive, showing and active. They are really not. They are not listed and cannot be found. Hence the word… “Ghost-ed”.If you are seeing that your ads are always pink/deleted, your account has been “Blacklisted” because you have “abused” your account. Unfortunately there is no way around this and you have what is known as a ”dead” account. This is due to your IP’s being logged by craigslist and no matter how many times you switch your content, your images ect…. It is your IP’s that get your blacklisted. Your Ip’s and your account in general.Good luck opening up any other craigslist account after that by the way…. No matter what email, phone ect… you use… you will be blacklisted because of you IP addresses.Now “Auto-Flagging” happens because of your competition.

There is something called auto-flagging software that can be ran to identify your keywords, ip address, email and more. Whenever this software comes by your ad, it then flags it. Giving you no chance for sales, conversions, opt –ins, leads and no chance in general to make money.“Captchas” are different. They are found everywhere. A captcha is the little box you always see with the funky numbers and letters that you have to re-write to continue to the next page, complete a submission and to prove you are not a robot.

These aren’t anything that important. Just an extra step in the filtering system craigslist put there to stop “us” from advertising our businesses and making an honest living.Now… “PVA’s” is one of the most difficult things on craigslist. PVAs are the heart and soul for the most part to post on craigslist. Even though you still need the proper servers to post in bulk, the proper IP software, and more, PVA’s are what really get most people. It causes them to stress, spend money and then BAM, nothing happens because you do not have any of the other tools.PVA’s also known as Phone Verified Accounts are there to have you verify a phone number so you do not create multiple accounts.

Once a phone number is verified you can not verify it again for 90 days. This makes people go to friends, family, co-workers ect… to create new craigslist accounts. But the thing is… once they do that… they grow impatient. Log into their craigslist account of the computer they shouldn’t, then craigslist links their banned/blacklisted IP address to the new PVA and then that account gets blacklisted as well and now the Phone number is wasted.Craigslist is a vicious cycle, but if used properly can make you A LOT of money.

 

Using Classified Advertising Sites is a Great Way to Advertise your Business

To market your business or services online, you can write categorized adverts and post them on the internet. You would generally post them on a free advertising website, which is a straightforward and effective way to promote your business/services/products. Posting your advertisements online can help you broaden your customer base for your company. Instead of advertising in the newspapers which charge a per-line basis and therefore usually need to be short in proportions, you can provide a more detailed description on a classified website. This gives you the opportunity to keep the advertisement short and the point but also providing just a bit more added detail for your potential customers. Also, people usually use internet rather than the magazines or newspapers. Your advert has the potential to reach more people because when they search for your particular trade your advert has the opportunity to be found.

Also, it is quick, simple and cost effective to create and post an advert on a classified website. There are several websites available where you can go and post an ad. Websites may or may well not charge for placing your advertisement in their directory (the rates are usually well within a small budget). The following points below will help you to post an effective classified ad.

The first thing you need to do is make sure the title is simple and states the goal of your business or services You can also make the subject catchy so that it catches the reader's attention. When writing the description, provide enough information about the costs/fees the customers may have to pay. Remember to add whether it is a per-hour or a per-day basis that may depend after your business/services. It is best to state the price at the end of the advert or if you prefer you can inform the readers that the price will be disclosed when they get in touch with you, be that via directly within the website, email or telephone.

Select the category of your advert in accordance with your business or products, because this is where you ad will appear to your potential clients and customers. It is important to leave your contact information like contact number or email-id. If you are based nationwide or worldwide it may add extra popularity to your product or service. On some websites you can add a 'map' where you can provide your location and it will show where you are based. This is great for those having many branches, which means you can supply the locations of different offices on the map and then the customer can contact the main one nearest to them. Should your business/company have a web site, don't forget to put it in you advertisement.

Finally, give a detailed explanation of your product/services. Keep it to the point but put as much detail as possible in a simple, easy to understand way. You can upgrade your classified advertisement every once in a while if you would like to make it a featured ad.
