Secret To Posting To All Cities At Craigslist !

Avertisements

Hey Guys,

One of the drawbacks of Craigslist and frankly most classified sites is you can only post to a city or region. At least at the classified sites with any traffic to speak of.

Well and as most of us know, most classified sites are just plain ZOOS!

For that reason I've spent oh about and hour in the last several years at them combined.

Well that's about to change. I've learned this little trick to get your ad displayed to all cities at once without being deleted.

Plus, I even post a clickable picture of my videos on the ad that takes them right to the auto play video!

An no this isn't one of those automated submission tools. Those frankly suck and will just get you banned.

The trick is to post your ad in the forums which are by default to all cities. Just post in a category related to your niche and then use a snagit type tool or push print screen when viewing your video and paste in paint and cut and save to your computer.

Host it yourself or at image shack and then simply display it on your forum post as a clickable image.

Add relevant content as usual making a valuable forum post for that category and you'll get tons of traffic from just one post at craigslist.

You do have to have an account at the forums for at least 7 days to post a link and or image, but hey, that gives you plenty of time to write a Killer post...doesn't it.

Please don't abuse this strategy, and as always, try to add value to any forum you post at.

But quite frankly if you are adding value you might as well get maximum return on the investment...right?

Cheers,
Zac

Just a quick update.

I've posted just one forum post like this at craigslist with great success.

BTW, for those of you who don't know, NEVER make your email visible at CL!

This reminds me, I think I'll go make another quick post. :D

Cheers,
Zac

I can definitely see the workability of this method. I'll definitely be doing it.

Does any body know a method for posting to multiple cities in the classified ads? Image files? Multiple email accounts? Does anything work for posting classified ads for every city CL has in my state?

Of course the trick is to find something to post that will make you some money or attract qualified leads at least, without getting mobbed by all the do gooders and thrown out.

In my past experience, there are trolls all over Craigslist scouring the ads and forums both just looking for an excuse to cause marketers grief. They HATE marketers with a driving passion. I'm not saying you can't get around that, but you definitely need to think outside the box.

I think you hit the nail on the head OldBuddy,

Haven't done this in a while, but I think it's imperative that you add value with you post
in order to keep the anti-marketing crowd from spamming your post etc.

As you say, a bit of thinking out side the box is in order. Cleverly adding valuable content
is key to getting any kind of click through to start with, but keeping the anti-marketing crowd
in mind as you do it will no doubt also be helpful.

That is a great tip. But you know there are people who are on Craigslist that report your post as spam because that person doesnt like what you post. Thats why i like Backpages instead. But op this really is a good tip for those who use Craigslist as an advertising method! Thanx :)

Hey,

Just read your trick about posting on forums. But, how people can see your ad? people don't search on forums if they want to buy something. So how you can actually get your posting in the the selling section where people search for items?

Hi... I see this post was first started two years ago...

Now in 2012 I am trying to find the forums at Craiglist and I have been unsuccessful.

Are you still able to use this as a technique to generate trafic in 2012.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks
