How to get deals from Craigslist

15 replies
I have been doing this method for over a year now and I decided I would share it with my fellow warriors. I get notified of everything that is posted on Craigslist that is related to web design, Wordpress, Social Media and SEO.

If anyone in the country posts an ad on Craigslist with any one of those words I am notified about it and I am going to explain how I do it.

It's actually pretty easy.

1st make sure you have a Gmail account, so that in turn you have a Google drive account.
2nd join this site ifttt.com
3rd watch the video to see how to set up a recipe here, 4th read all the ads and reply for the jobs.

That's it. It's pretty easy.

I hope this helps some of you out.

      What do you mean services like that? You are being notified about people looking for web design, Wordpress, SEO services, so you can email them to offer your services.

    The problem is, unless the poster leaves an email (and you contact them directly) craigslist limits the number of messages you can send though their system at one time. I don't know the exact number, but I do know that you do get limited eventually. There are ways around this - proxy servers, multiple emails, etc but there's a bit of setup to be done.

      I haven't had a problem with this. I go through the ads in my spreadsheet and reply to the ones that sound good to me.

          If you are not familiar with IFTTT you should be. If you are not using IFTTT, you should be.

          IFTTT is hands down no questions asked the best method to automate oh so many things. When I first started using it, I automated most of my social posing from my blogs. The when you really start playing with it you can think up crazy wicked stuff like described in this thread.

          Forget all the plugins that post this here or do this and do that. This is ONE tool that will do it all, and by far then some!

          If you cant tell I am a big fan - wish they sold it, I would be an affiliate in a heart beat!

      I have never had a problem with this, because I am not mass sending. I go through my list and reply. That usually takes some time between mailings, so maybe they are not being flagged, because they are so far apart.

      I also created an emailing software that will pause as long as I want between emails if I want to collect a bunch and mail them all at once.

      I have used this for mass emailing people from the resume section.
