    Hey everyone,

    I just had an idea and thought I would see what you guys think about it.

    I know that when I first started using CL one of the hardest things for me was to come up with decent ad copy that was unique enough to post a few hundred ads. Over a short period of time I came up with a way to get great ad copy that sticks decently.

    Do you think it would be worth it to write a short ebook about how I do this and then sell it for like $10 on other forums like DP? It will be geared for the CL noob, I know there are a lot of ebooks out there on how to use CL...but I am yet to see one that tells you how to get good ad copy that sticks and do it quickly.

    With the method I use you can literally come up with a few new ads everyday in just a few hours time.

    So...waste of time or do you think it might make me a an extra couple hundred bucks?

    Thanks for your input, be harsh...you won't hurt my feelings. :p

    you might make a couple hundred...I'll give you that... but you will be saturating CL with whatever methods you use...wouldn't it be easier to post a couple ads and make a couple hundred, and keep your methods secret?

    My method can't really be saturated per say...It will just teach new people how to write ads properly...no matter what niche you are in. I see your point though, if I make it easier for people to post then CL will be flooded more than it already is.

    Since no one else has bothered to respond I'll take it everyone else thinks it's a bad idea.

    Okay, no Ebook.

    Thanks guys.

    It's not that it's a bad idea it's just that Craigslist changes so fast by the time you write it up and sell it the idea could already be outdated. I've been posting for 3 years and I've seen the changes come much quicker now days. You'll make a lot more money just using the method yourself.

    I just copied other people's ads & methods. I banked off it, I was happy, then CL came with their BS lawsuit and the program that I was using closed down.

    Now there's some half-hearted business people who has setup monthly subscription BS - f*ck that...

    I hate the people that do that. I spent hours working out a good converting ad and response and then someone took it and is autoposting it everywhere word for word.

    No honor amongst thieves, but I hoped there'd be honor amongst black hatters.

    I doubt that the method will ever be really outdated. It's a method for writing ads...not posting them....no fancy tricks like ascii or anything like that either that can get banned in the future.

    I understand what you mean about CL and all their changes. I have been on CL for over a year now and have already witnessed a lot of that....recaptcha, colored text bans, air card IP's blacklisted, charging in more Jobs cities, lawsuits, charging for posts in Erotic Services (now "Adult" Services)...I'm probably missing a few..

    I agree though, I should just keep it to myself. Thanks guys.
