3 Craigslist marketing strategies: buying and selling, optimizing your listing and free promotions!

In this tutorial I explain three different strategies for how you can run a business, and make money on Craigslist. The first strategy is an arbitrage model where you find a niche in which you can specialize, and buy them on Craigslist cheaply, and sell them more expensively. This strategy works even better if you are able to repair broken items, and then sell them for a price.

Another strategy is to do free promotions with your Amazon Kindle books, and post those free offers on CraigsList’s free section. This can help to drive your free Kindle book downloads, and ultimately rank highly on Amazon.

The strategy of selling or giving away free things on CraigsList as part of your overall marketing strategy is something that can be applied to much of online marketing. Here is why. Much of online marketing is algorithm based gaming of search engines. And search engines like to see rapid growth of whatever your product is. So if you can funnel many people to your product from your CraigsList marketing, it will cause a spike in traffic or sales to be seen by the search engine on which you are trying to rank, and that can help you boost sales there.

Lastly, you must make sure that your listing is optimized with a great headline, description, and photos. A title of your listing should contain proper keywords because many people searching Craigslist often use filters, and you must make sure that you use keywords that will ensure that your listing will show up even if people filter by keywords.

One thing I want to mention is that I keep being surprised by how many people don’t take care of the title and description in their CraigsList listings. You would think that it is the simplest thing to adjust, but many people neglect it. Don’t be one of those people, and make the title and description of your Craigslist postings work to your advantage.

There are many ways to make money on Craigslist, but I want to point out that there are also many scammers on that site. Be careful of buying or selling to people when the situation seems too good to be true.
