How to Make money with Craigslist

by anik73 7 replies
Hey guys, I just came to know that people are making money from Craigslist (classified ad posting). I have many high quality products to sell with very low price but i don't know how to sell them using Craigslist. Any help is much appreciated. When anyone would like to help me please consider that i am from Bangladesh and my products are garments items and jewelery items. Thanks

    This is tricky as you're in Bangladesh and you're selling physical products. Craigslist is mostly used for local goods and services for buy/sell. One thing that I'd look into:

    - See about hooking up with Amazon to handle your distribution. They can handle your warehousing and shipping, with a fee of course.
    - Use Craigslist (as well as other internet marketing mediums: websites, YT, videos, etc) to market your product. When someone contacts you, you can mention that in order to provide a safe transaction for both of you, you use Amazon to handle the shipping and orders. They'll also get to enjoy their 30 no hassle return policy. Send them to your amazon links
    - Test out various scripts to find which one works the best
    - Repeat for every city Craigslist covers

    I don't think that craigslist is that much attractive as it was before because recently they have changed a lot and they are getting harder on all such ads.

    Why not sell them on ebay? I have personally bought stuff on ebay from sellers based in India, China and Taiwan.
    If your products are good, no matter where you are, buyers will pay for it.

    I agree that the idea to sell on Amazon may make sense for you. You can consider the FBA (fulfillment by Amazon) program. There may be a few steps needed to get set up but keep in mind that Amazon gets tons of traffic from people looking to buy. Jim Cockrum offers an excellent course and support community just for FBA. I make money with it every week.

    Craigslist is not what it used to be. I can't get anything posted there and if I manage to slip something through, the take it down eventually.

    I would think you could find better distribution channels then CL. Look for importers.

      If they are handmade you could do well selling on too.

      I agree with the others that Craigslist probably isn't the spot for physical goods when you have to ship them.
