Hooray for craigslist

November 24, 2008

This is my craigslist testimonial.  For everyone out there who hasn’t tried it before, I think you should give it a whirl.  Craigslist is pretty simple – it’s free online classifieds.  And, it’s growing in popularity every day, so there’s a lot of traffic.

Just go to www.craigslist.org and pick your city.  Then, there’s all sorts of things for sale, job listings, housing, service listings, gig listings, etc.

My recent sucess with craigslist was selling furniture.  I ended up listing it about 3 times at differently spaced out intervals.  Each time I listed, I got immediate interest from several people, but it never really panned out. 

The final time I listed, the same happened – immediate interest, but more serious interest.  I got two people to come and look at the furniture and then one of them bought it.  They were happy, I was happy.

So, the moral of the story is this… craigslist is a great ‘online marketplace’ and best of all, it’s free!  Take that ebay!  Also, if at first you don’t suceed – list, list again.  (Remember, you have nothing to lose – it’s free!)

Oh, yea, can I interest anyone in a white tile-top table and six chairs?  Seriously.
