    I haven't posted anything in a while but since I have some free time today I though I could share something with the community :)

    Plenty of people here make money by selling gigs on fiverr but I wanted to show you a way that can make a nice amount of money by buying gigs as well. We all know how tough it is to post ads on CL these days and finding a reliable poster can often be really expensive not to mention that most of them wont be in interested unless you need a large amount of ads per day. The method below is perfect for testing the waters in CL and if done correctly it should bring you enough capital to hire a professional to post ads for you and expand your CL campaigns.

    The first thing you need to do is to get yourself an account in Fiverr which I'm sure many of you already have.Once you are registered just use the "Request Gigs" field on right and post the gig request. I usually word mine like: "Looking for someone in the USA who can post 10 (or 5 thats up to you) ads in CL for me" or " Looking for someone in NY or LA to post X number of ads in CL"

    With a request like that you should receive about 10 to 15 replies once it goes live. From my experience most of the people who will replay wont be regular CL posters and this could be a big benefit because you will not only get 10 live ads from them but you will also get a fresh PVA from each one that you could use later on. A few thing that you should remember:

    1. Make sure that you provide a unique ad copy to each of the posters you are going to use.
    2. Dont overdo it. Sure with a fresh ip and pva you might be able to stick 5 ads from a single poster in day but to be on the safe side go with 1 ad per day per poster. Thats still 10 ads a day or 100 ads for the 10 days they will post for you.
    3. Remember to tell them that you wont be paying for ghosted ads after all you wouldn't want to blow your money on someone who cant do sh*t

    Now once you have everything ready lets do some math.If you did everything correctly you should have at least 10 people who will post an ad a day for you for 10 days. Thats 100 ads + 10 fresh pva accounts that you can use later on for $50. With a proper ad and a price tag of 0.50c per ad its pretty easy to break even on your first day and have 9 days of pure profit left :)




    If you don't know what to post in CL here is a simple method I used in the past and has always been profitable for me.This is a little spin off on the "Free ipad/iphone etc method" that was posted here ages ago. Just tell your posters to post something like this:


    This can work with pretty much any gift certificate you can think of. To make it more realistic go to ebay.com and snatch a real picture for your ad. As long as your ad sounds real you can expect it to be live for at least a day which should bring you about 150-300 emails depending on the city your posting in.


    Once you collect your responses you can just use a generic email reply saying that you already gave it away but if they are still looking for a subway voucher you know a great site where they can get one and redirect them to a CPA offer of your choice.


    If you have any questions post them here or hit me up via PM I'll try to replay when I have some more free time on my hands.

    CL newbie here.. So you asking them to post 10 or 5 ads and asking them to surrender the CL PVA to you right?

    Also are we allowed to post 10 consecutive ads from a same IP in a short period of time even though each and every ads are unique?

    This sounds like a really good method. What sections on craigslist should this be posted on? The FREE section and General section??

    Yes thats right. Since many wont have a CL account i just tell them to create an email account sign up for CL and then provide me with the account info along with the urls to the ads.

    As I said in the first post dont over do it.To be on the safe side keep it at 1 ad per unique poster per day.

    Well it can be posted in both although you will get much more responses from the "Free" section.

    Sounds like a good method. You get pva and some posts for a good price.

    from my experience, giving *anything* away that has any value will result in flags from people hoping to flag your ad down to reduce the amount of replies you get so they have a higher chance of getting it.

    We can even outsource the CL posting to Microworkers where the minimum amount to hire a U.S. person is $0.25, but we can offer $1 for posting and PVA. This is very cheap when compare to Fiverr.

    So how about flagging your competitor ads? Is that effective?

    sorry i dont know if iam correct? or missing something, from your calculation,it will be more expensive than fiverr, cos if you pay $1 per worker to post and pva, thats will be for one day, so for 10 days it will be f $10, sorry i dont know if iam correct lol

    You don't have to pay $1 for each ad/each day. You are just gonna pay one time for whatever job you assign no matter how many days it takes. If I hire them I won't ask them to 10 ads( It is risky as OP said) instead I would ask them to post one ad and grab the PVA from them.
