I have a sub that uses CL to advertise his services and he seems to do ok. We advertise equipment for sale and it works out pretty good. I would not hire blindly from CL though.

I recently had a member of this website PM me asking if I knew how to do mass postings on CL. He went on to tell me he covered 3 states etc. I told him he is what's wrong with the industry.

I can't believe people. I have the VRM direct and can't make it work for $1,000.00. How is this going to work.

I use CL for lawn services in March/April... But I do not list it as PP work, just lawn work for the average homeowner!

I have sold things on CL. I like it for the most part.

The mass hiring over it leads to people that are already desperate spending their last dime to help some regional that may or may not pay them in 45 days.

CL is full of spammers.


I recently tried to sell a mower. Dear lord did I ever get inundated with spammers.

I finally replied to all of them "eff off spammer"

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

put a disclaimer that you will only except phone calls and no emails. that usually weeds out the spam pretty good. I have a separate email account I only use for cl that way I can just delete it .

Doesn't help.


I even spelled out some of my phone number in an effort to stop em.

That doesn't help, they spam text now.
They got the same message, "eff off spammer".

Around here, I have found a few Facebook Buy/Sell/Trade groups that are much more local than the region that Craigslist covers. Sure, I'm not hitting the large audience of CL, but the people are real. Something you guys may want to check out.

I was advertising a slightly dented OHD garage door for sale, someone contacted me about installing a new door for them.
