Craigslist changed their system a few weeks ago. (Ah the joys of internet marketing continue!) It is not like before where you can just change the IP, ad bodies, and use different accounts. I'm not sure how ad postings could be done because of this change. But somehow, some companies manage to post their ads in multiple cities everyday without a problem. If you are this person that can do this we are looking to hire you long term.
You must be able to change the ads some, so they are not duplicates. As with the new CL system the ads will show live in the email account that they were posted to, but some of the ads will not show up in the searchable listings that persons can see!
Bidders are asked to comment in the PMB with regard to their experience with recent (last 30 days) changes to CL where ads appear to post through the confirmation e-mail, but fail to appear live on the CL site.
I need references that I can call and/or email in the U.S. DON'T BID if you don't have multiple references for me to contact. I prefer U.S. based people, but if you're in India you will have to really prove yourself before and during project. Over the years that worst work, worst or no communication, and total losers have been from that part of the world I have hired from about a half dozen freelance sites.
I do not want to be banned nor have my website banned by Craigslist. Nothing is worth that! I would also like you to give me a brief explanation to how this can be done and how you will accomplish posting on the site.
My ads will be in the form of a jpg image EXACTLY like this link below (this ad and another just like it is what you will post 20 times a day until sold!) [url removed, login to view]
I will be generous and pay for up to 5% of staff deleted postings. I'm looking to post 20 Craigslist/MSN Expo ads per day to start and pay .15 cents per post. Bid is for $90 a month to start for 20 posts a day in the next 24-48 hours depending on how fast your references check out. I will be providing the graphic ads code.
Project will turn into 100-200 or more a day in the near future, if you prove you can do this properly and are a true professional.
Ads for the most part ads will be posted in the real estate section in the state of Texas AND FL. We will provide a list of cities. Must provide a spreadsheet of cities and links of url's at the end of EACH day. After a successful month the daily report can be sent just twice a week instead of daily.
Payment will be through Script lance or Paypal only! I also will pay bonuses if either of these homes is sold in the next 30 days from an ad you place.
Send us your resume, references, current CL ads and tell us the system that you use for success on CL (if you do not want to give away everything, all that I care about is that our ads will show up on the CL site, just show us current ads that you have placed in multiple cities and/or everyday
Things you MUST do and know EXACTLY why and how to do…
1) Unique Email address: Use a different email address for each posting.
2) Different Ad Descriptions: You need to change the ad description slightly each time to avoid "similar posting" error and staff deletions.
3) IP Address: Must rotate your IP as frequently as possible. If a lot of ads are posted using a single IP then it is blocked for few hours to few days, even permanently if abused recurrently. It seems postings from foreign IPs are auto-deleted by craigslist software now! You need to be buying U.S. Ips, no exceptions.
4) Titles: Titles should match with category. Using a lot of different titles is also helpful. Particularly, it reduces user flagging. And obviously user flagging leads to staff deletion. I will provide hundreds of keywords to use one keyword phrase per title.
5) Give some time gap between each batch of postings.
6) Select your posting category properly. Postings on wrong categories are flagged and deleted so quickly. For the next 30-60 days all postings will be in the real estate for sale section only.
7) Finally, avoid using a particular word or phrase (may be company name, keywords, phone number or email address etc...) in your titles or ad descriptions.
8) Must post manually. NO SCRIPTS.
9) You will need to be able to create and answer emails from email verification and also get past image verification 'Or' at least allow image verification process quick and easy.
