Craigslist Most Useful Tips by Cheap Craigslist Posting Service

Repost, Repost!:

Reposting your ad is the only way you are ever going to sell anything. There are hundreds and hundreds of posts on Craigslist in every category and people don’t like to scroll through tens of pages to find what they are looking for. So the only way to sell your stuff is to repost your ads to make them stay on top of the page. This tactic also needs to be applied carefully as posting the same ad can get you flagged as spam or ghosted.

Post your Ad Accompanied with a Good Image (Always!):

Humans are visual creatures. We always prefer looking at something instead of reading about it. The same is true on Craigslist.

Craigslist Posting Services also use images because it increases the credibility of your post greatly. 

And with image,  you have to always use a good quality, clutter-free image in good lighting. People usually filter out the post without images and due to your slackness, you could miss the chance of selling of your perfectly good item.

Be Very Specific!:

Be very specific about the details of the item that you are selling because people are going to come out of their way to collect the said item. They are going to spend time and money to do that so they will want to know as much about the item beforehand as possible. This will let them decide whether they are serious about getting it or not.

For example, if you are selling a bookcase with an ad of just one line that says ‘ bookcase. Wooden. $30 final ‘, It’s not gonna interest the potential buyer as much as if you include description about its condition, color, size, dimensions and maker. 

Cheap Craigslist Posting Service always prefers ads with as many details a s possible because that is a sure-shot prelude to a successful sale.

Do your Homework and Learn from Others:

You can always learn from others and the easiest way to do that is by going deep into Craigslist and finding out what works and what doesn’t.

Look at all the different kinds of ads and see which items have sold and which haven’t. Why are some ads months old while others have made successful sales in a matter of hours or days.

Then learn the good stuff and model your ad or posting on that format.

Ask for a Fair Price:

Always ask for a fair price, neither too high nor too less. If you ask for a very high price, you will get no leads and if your price is too low, then there are two problems: people might mistake you for a scammer or you may lose any bargaining power with the potential customer.

As a craigslist ad poster, we would advise that you set the lowest price that you’d be willing to accept and add 20%-25% to it. Chances are you will be able to get what you want and always accept cash only.
