Craigslist Selling Digital Products (MRR)
Craigslist has come a long way since it started out back in 1995, and continues to thrive today despite competition from sites like Gumtree and eBay.
Craigslist is not as fancy or complicated as eBay, its easier and
quicker to use. You dont even have to join to post something for
sale, although there are some advantages to joining including
being able to repost an ad (which may save you time later).
Craigslist also has an active community who connect in the discussion forums, and anyone can join those communities to
discuss like-minded issues and topics.
The number one top benefit of Craigslist,
is that it is Free to buy and sell from. Unlike eBay, there is no payment processor like
Paypal built in, Craigslist expect you to actually meet your buyer in
person for hand over and payment.
There are many other advantages to using Craigslist to buy and sell.
As a buyer, you remain anonymous until you decide to reveal your details. Because you dont pay online, you normally
agree to meet the buyer in person (usually in a public place if
possible) to complete the purchase.
If you are a seller, you dont
have to divulge anything about yourself or your contact details until
after you have a buyer you are willing to sell to.
For online marketers, business people and product creators, the
benefits of Craigslist are huge, but it is tricky building up a large
volume of sales due to their no spam policy, and how digital
products and website hyperlinks can be viewed as inappropriatefor Craigslist.
