    When I started with Craigslist, I had limited posting ability. I needed a way to get a ton of leads with minimal effort. After seeing how my sister would obsess over makeup, spending a ridiculous amount on these products, I felt this may be profitable.

    The Makeup Method

    Post up a very quick, one-liner, ad in the For Sale > Free Section. The key to get a ton of leads and prevent flagging is to sound like you broke up with your girlfriend and that she left a bunch of makeup at your place. My ads would go something like this:

    It was really that simple. One liner with a fake picture.

    Leads from girls flooded my inbox and I soon understood that girls really love this stuff. And free made it so much better.

    My response was equally simple and dumb-witted. I would respond back to these girls as if I already gave them away.

    Girls would respond back actually thanking me for telling them where to get free makeup. Conversions was almost at 50%.

    Aside from keeping it ridiculously simple with your ads and response, the offer was key. Any female related products worked well. What I found was that e-mail submits was killer. Girls would happily give up their email and shipping address to get free makeup. At about $1.40/lead, it wasn't much, but the great conversion made up for it.

    Enjoy! :)

    That's a good idea... since I became a mother, I <3 <3 <3 free stuff! Samples are the bomb! I don't know exactly what my son likes, so getting those free samples of chocolate cereal bars, or dried fruit or a free sippy cup with Juicy Fruit on it just thrills me. Then I can see if he likes chocolate cereal bars without buying a whole box (and I don't like'em either so they'd all go to waste).

    Last time I checked, CX Digital had a make up related offer. I'm not sure if it's sttill up though.

    Nice share OP, it's another solid way to use the freebies angle.
