Craigslist-Gain Free Website Traffic!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Good morning guys,

Craigslist is an incredible way to get Free website traffic to your website. All internet marketers should love Craigslist, since you get FREE traffic without spending any money.

So, how does Craigslist.com provide free website traffic for Internet marketers? The answer can be said in two words: classified ads. These are just like the ads you would find in the newspaper except they are COMPLETELY FREE.

Even though Craigslist is completely free, you must post ads for categories that are relevant to your site. Whatever you do, don’t post the same ad in multiple cities, since that goes against Craigslist.com’s rules and will get flagged and your account possibly banned. Instead, post your ad on a city that gets a ton of traffic, such as San Francisco, New York or Washington D.C.

By posting one or two ads on Craigslist.com, you will become more noticeable by search engine bots, which may increase your overall search engine ranking.

How To Make Money Online Using Craigslist And Ebay

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

Hello everyone!

What a day! As many of you know I’m in college and today was my first day back. I can already tell this semester is going to be full of sleepless nights followed by pots and pots of coffee. My situation is kind of unique because I honestly know what I want to do with my life. I have my internet marketing career planned out for the next decade.

I’m finishing college for three reasons:

1. To please my family - they’ve invested thousands and thousands of dollars for me to go to college

2. When I’m older I want to be able to say I graduated college

3. I only have two years left

Unless the internet goes extinct in the next fifty years I can honestly say my degree is going be collecting a lot of dust. Oh well!

Okay, on to my latest method on “How To Make Money Online”

This method involves using Craigslist and EBay. I actually came up with this method when I was 17 years old REALLY needing to make a quick $100-$200. It’s easy and just takes a bit of work. I’ve recieved a couple of e-mails needing to make quick money online and this is honestly the quickest way I could come up with.

Okay, here is the method.

Everyday in YOUR city, THOUSANDS of valuable items are listed on Craigslist. The sellers are EAGER to sell the items and many times have NO idea what the worth of their item is.

YOUR JOB is to find good deals on Craigslist and then caller the seller.

Probably 60-70% of the time you can negotiate with the seller to LOWER the price by 25% or more. The LISTED price means nothing!! Craigslist sellers are generally the most desperate and listed their item on CL because they wanted CASH TODAY. If you don’t mind traveling to meet up with sellers and wheeling and dealing you can make some serious cash doing what I call Craiglist/Ebay Arbitrage.

How do you find out if its worth to sell on ebay?

Simply create an ebay account and do an ADVANCED SEARCH for your item and click “Completed Auctions”

BAM! You can see every price for your item the auction has closed at.

Generally I look for electronic items on Craigslist because those are the most sought after on EBay.

Do not be afraid to negotiate on the phone!! I’ve saved THOUSANDS. I’ll usually say something like

“I can pick up the item in an hour CASH if you can sell it to me for $XX.XX”

They will either counter offer or say SURE!

It’s easy guys.. It takes work but its GUARANTEED!

Build your EBAY rep to gain more and more bidders for your items.

One word of caution.. be a bit careful dealing with Craigslist sellers. There have beeen people set up to be robbed before so I HIGHLY suggest meeting the person in a public area such as a McDonalds or a mall etc.. I NEVER go to the persons house..

Also be sure to look the item completely over before buying.

That’s it guys! I’ll be back tomorrow with another way to make quick, fast, and guaranteed cash online.
