Craigslist Struggles—Why Your Ads Won’t Stick

Do your land ads keep getting flagged on Craigslist? It’s all about location!

…as they dive deep into the struggle of getting your ads to stick, on this week’s Round Table.

Erik shares how he often sees people throw the towel in too soon when it comes to CL because of flagged posts. Since Craigslist is big on getting rid of scammers and spammers, they only want local people selling local goods, making it hard to market our property.

Listen in as the team shares what works for them and offers sage advice for setting up a good algorithm to produce high stick rates.

But, what happens when you make it through the filters and you aren’t getting the leads?

Scott Todd has the answer for you!

You don’t need hundreds of ads a day, you just need to find your voice so people will connect with you.

Have you given Craigslist a fair chance and still don’t feel the love? Do whatever is working for you, just don’t write CL off too soon because of the struggles in the beginning. Erik says that the majority of his leads come from there… and a lead is as good as a sale!

The team goes on to compare CL to Facebook.


Scott: Change your passwords! If you’re using the same username and password for everything, you better stop it. Make sure you use super strong passwords and figure out some system to manage that because the threat is real. Protect yourself. 

Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
