    1. Sign up for an Amazon affiliate account
    2. Select an item that is reasonably priced and offers free shipping. i.e. (microwaves)
    3. Use site strip to link directly to the product. Then create a text link that says (specs and reviews here)
    4. Save 1 crappy image of the item (ideally one submitted by a user)
    5. Go to craigslist and create an account
    6. Post your item for sale on craigslist and price it a little higher than the item?s cheapest price on Amazon. Be sure to include the Amazon link in your craigslist post.
    7. Leave the ad alone for 24 hours
    8. Login to your Amazon account and see how much you?ve earned.


    At current I?m doing this a couple of cities, but it could be replicated and done in many cities which I?m sure would increase the earnings. The trick is to make your ad look lame and make sure the item cost less on Amazon.

    Its a new idea for me. The summary of your post is to catching the concentration of the buyers with price comparison.

    How much u are making with this method?

    Have you tried posting a link to your own website like mircowavemodel103review.info and redirecting it to amazon or ebay?

    So far it is making an average of $7/per day. I'm sure more could be made if it were done on a larger scale.

    uma4guma-

    Good post! I like the creative way that you leverage one site against another. Also, the step by step methodology is really easy to follow. "Thanks" button hit and +rep given.

    Keep up the great posting! :)

    What is "site strip"? I've searched G00gle for it and can't find a thing! Great post by the way!

    are you allowed to put an Ama*zon.com link on Egay? or is that against TOS of seller's accounts?

    Good idea. How much work does it required? Earning $7/24 hours doesn't sound that good. But good start.

    The "site strip' is a menu bar that Amazon places at the top of their website. Before you can see it you must create and be logged into your Amazon affiliate account. it has a few links on it such as "Link to this item" 'Earnings Reports" etc.

    Hi
    I just posted a few Craigslist listings for amazon products.

    2 of them were flagged and removed. Do you know why? I changed the link name to "Specifications and Reviews".
    Please tell me what to do.

    Thanks

    this is cool

    I do CS so maybe use my CJ or Linkshare products w/ pic and direct to subdomain and re-direct to item, I may try this and is a pretty fresh idea IMO.
