Re: ARRRGHHH So Frustrated with Craigslist!

Odesk and elance might frustrate you due to the low offers and high competition. In this case, it's best to check this site: thumbtack dot com.

Good luck and more power!

Craigslist is a big waste of time in my opinion if you are marketing online.

If I was you I would try other methods, even if you get it to work, traffic will mostly be junk.
