I’m waiting now for a call from a website client at the moment and just thought about some more info to share. I started implementing my craigslist campaign a few days ago and had some frustrating experiences. The post I made initially, “Your stupid if you don’t buy from us” got flagged almost within the hour. This at first, alarmed me. I thought the po po’s were going to show up at my door or something. As I was scrambling to hide the guns and dope, I realized…”maybe there is more to this”. I did some research and found an article that hipped me to the game. You can check it out here:
After reading the article I reposted my ad and it got flagged/removed within another hour (but I forgot to re-word it). The third time was a charm and my latest post has remained visible for a couple of days now. I’ve received a few leads, through the post so the efforts are paying off. I almost need someone to flag it again so I can repost it. In the world of internet forums, it’s like everytime they remove a post it gets made ‘sticky’ or is ‘bumped’.
Not only did I post an ad to gain buyer leads, but I also posted an ad in search of an investor-friendly Realtor and I posted an ad looking for a phone receptionist to take my phone calls and complete lead-sheets (no mo PATlive). These posts are still fresh, so I’ll tell the results in time.
