    How Many Times Do You Post On Craigslist Before You Make Get A Sale/Lead/Etc.

    I am brand new to craigslist marketing, posted an ad today, got 1 response which was an affiliate link - so I'm wondering what it takes to make it on Craigslist.

    I know I have a great offer - its not CPA, Affiliate, or any of that... its a legit offer that I've put together for offline people.

    So the question is: how many ads before a sale/lead/etc happens?

    Keep posting till you make one...all anyone can really tell you. If you post 100 ads and get nothing..then it's back to the CL ad copy drawing board.

    It totally depends on your offer.
    To say "how many" is too broad since campaigns, offers and clever ADs can vary.

    Look at a thread like RichUser's where he can make $500 from posting 5 ADs.
    Is his offer stronger then yours? Likely... but you get the concept.

    So... to actually offer somewhat helpful advice; I would say that a "decent" campaign should convert within at least 10 ADs being posted. This again depends on the ADs as sometimes 10 posts can yield 5 or 500 email responses. Also the payout for your offer is important. If your making $2 for a submit then you'll need to convert much better. A $40 payout is a different story.

    You can look at your CTR or earning ratio and whatnot but if your sending out 150 emails and not getting a sale... it's not likely going to work out. Rethink your AD, your response or your campaign.

    If your making acceptable money at the end of the day... you know you've got something ;)
