(disclaimer, this is for noob marketers, if you're an experienced marketer, no need to waste your time reading this) First of all, I apologize if this is not new and has been discussed before. (Shit, its probably older than me) But I did a quick scan and didn't really see anyone mention it recently. Anyway, I see a lot of new marketers having problems with getting their ads to stick on CL, or needing PVAs and so on. Well, back when I did marketing, this is what I'd do. Post an ad in the "free" section for something relating to your niche. For example, if I'm pushing an ebook about "building muscles in 7 seconds a year" I'd post an ad for a free bowflex and treadmill, saying something like "I run a small fitness club, and just got new equipment, so I'm giving this away for free" You need to make it believable, but not a total piece of shit, find some appropriate pics of a used machine on egay or something. Now, turn on the auto responder on the email addy you used, and just say something like "Sorry, the machines are already gone." Now, make an official looking signature for your email, like; Personal Trainer; John Marketer, Fitness Club XYZ, 123 Fake Street Anystate USA. *CLICK HERE* to check out our latest professional fitness guide! *have an official looking picture of "you" or "your" fitness club here* ..or something like that. Don't make it too spammy, it has to look like a regular business email signature. Oh yeah, its better if your email is something like [email protected] Now, craigslisters LOVE free shit, and you will get hundreds of responds. The conversion rate is NOT great, I generally got 1 sale for every 3-5 posts in major cities (which = like 2k+ replies over 2 weeks). However, your ads look 100% legit and will practically NEVER get flagged, deleted, ghosted or anything. They will stay up forever. Also, no need for PVAs or anything to post in "free stuff", and the "free stuff" category isn't saturated with spam like everything else. The best part is, its all automated. You can set this up and at least try it in less than it took you to read this post. Obviously this is not for experienced marketers, and I'm not claiming to be one myself. I just see a lot of new guys all chasing the same nickel and getting all depressed because they have 0 sales. So, if you have 0 sales, and haven't tried this, spend the 5 minutes to give it a shot.
