Responding to every CL ad. Is CL filtering me?

    Hey guys. I will be doing some testing on my own but I wanted to see if someone already had or knows the answer. I will also be sharing what this method is for as long as it works :)
    I need to be able to email every niche post on CL. The issue is that many of them are CL anonymous emails and I do not think the businesses are getting my emails.
    So do I need to:
    * Change up the email every so often?
    * Use a domain email address?
    * Change up the subject and message body?
    * Change up my IP address?

    Let me know your thoughts? I would like to not have change up my IP address.

    I have the same problem, people are not responding. I even tried to offer exactly what was requested for free, just to try.

    I would think that no emails are being received, but then I get an isolated answer...

    I'm very confused as what happens, I send personalized messages, with no links or typical SPAMmy words because I don't SPAM, but answers are rare...

    Waiting to see some replies!

    You might want to read this craigslist(odt)org/about/liquidated.damages before you blast emails at a 0% return rate.

    Emailing @cl is difficult, even for the pros. Yes, most your emails are getting filtered, you can count on it.

    I'd start off by harvesting traditional email addresses off cl and working with those.

    Basically, doing the right thing, which is not blasting a generic list of emails, but sending tailored and genuine messages to selected posts, doesn't pay because of filtering? Why would I get filtered?

    Adding that crap about liquidated damages that I wasn't aware of, is going to make me look elsewhere, definitely...
