    Hi everyone, I'm from the UK and trying my hardest to make some cash from Craigslist in the US. To realise my dreams it seems that I have a few hurdles in my path such as PVA's and Proxies. I am at the point where I believe CLAD GENIUS could help me with the volume of posts I want (300+ per day) and I can get PVA's for around $2 each, I also have a Private Proxy Server through IP Rental, but this all costs a lot more money than I think others are spending whilst getting the same results...

    600 PVA's = $1200+ (300 per day = 1 every 48 hours)
    CLAD GENIUS = $1000 or near enough for PRO (2xPC) + $50p/m Support
    IP Rental = $400 per month

    I am certain I'm missing something here - CL is where it seems to be all happening but the numbers don't add up.. If it's going to cost me serious cash every month using a Private Proxy service and buying CL PVA's to get my posts live in the US, then I'll need some super high CTR's to make it worthwhile - which I have (phew). However I am looking for a way of having all my posts done on a daily basis without a headache to show for it, so I can work on other projects.

    So... If I am looking to get posted around 300 live/accepted ads per day 5-6 days per week would a CL poster be better? The cheapest price I have been quoted is $0.50 per live post with an 80-90% success rate. This allows me to stop tearing my hair out everytime my posts are rejected, but is this the way that the successful adsense Craigslist guys are doing it??

    If I have a CTR of 5-10% and a CPC of £0.80-£1.20 surely I just need a high volume of adverts, right?

    Ideally I want my 300 ads to be viewed around 5 times each (1500 views = 75-150 clicks at 5-10%) Therefore a daily income of £60-180 is possible.

    Am I thinking with the right logic here? Is this realistic? PLEASE HELP ME!!
