Craigslist = Free High Quality Leads

8 replies
If you are not aware yet or forgot... craigslist is still one of best places to get free high quality leads and make money on them. It ranks #11 in US and #73 worldwide.

Besides the job section where you can post working URL links you can also use links in "Community" categories such as Classes, Events, General, etc. If you are offering free online webinars, online tutorials, etc...this is a good place to start. Not only start but continue building your list and profiting. You just have to be a little creative, create a good landing page (lead capture page), and create something valuable that you can give for free and also have some kind of upgrade. I hire people on fiverr to post ads for me because it works over and over again. One of my best campaigns generated 308 free leads and made 42 sales ($99 item) just from 1 Event post in NYC on how to start an online business. It was 60 minutes free automated webinar on what is a website, how to set it up, how internet marketing works and how people make money as an affiliate...and then I sold a guide for $99 on advance internet marketing strategies. Not every campaign generates 308 leads but every single campaign has generated free leads.

I've tested various campaigns. Those that generate most leads are about making money, internet business, part time work, becoming own boss, and working from home.

The best part about craigslist...it's FREE to post! You can even make money with clickbank products if you don't have your own product. Offer some free training/class/webinar and at the end redirect them to a clickbank product. I've done it many times and still do it. It works...and it works!

All you have to do it put the time and effort into creating a good landing page and good material that people will appreciate and want to give you money their money.

Don't worry about competition...if you got a good thing PEOPLE WILL COME TO YOU

    Creativity is key. I have just for my own personal time, and or for business posted on CL through the years. Some have been dismal failures, and some have been spectacular successes. What you stated is interesting and unique.

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference

    Absolutely! Craigslist is a gold mine. In fact, some 6 and 7 figure earners use CL as their primary lead source and others focus solely on CL. However, for some it's been difficult since the removal of hyperlinks....but, where there's a will, there's a way! Marketing on Craigslist is definitely an opportunity to think outside the box and Coolidge gave plenty of golden nuggets about how and where to start.

    Yes Craigslist is a massive resource-but only for American people, it is not really possible to leverage CL from outside USA unless you resort to phone verified accounts, but even these are dodgy, so only for the US folks I would say.

      I don't live in the US, can I ask my friend to make me an CL account and then place a few adds without links to products?

    I have thought about this, as I know that those sections can still display a working link.

    However, I have yet to test and also a bit hesitant because ideally, you would want to post in all the big major cities. Which I'm not sure about how to achieve such these days.

      I think that's where Fiverr comes in. If I wanted to post an event in CL NYC, I'd try to find someone in NYC to post it for me.

      Interesting idea...
