4 Ways to Use Craigslist to Make Money

Craigslist is one of the biggest classified websites and it advertises all sorts of things. It is also a great source for making money online as it presents endless opportunities. The only secret is to know what to look for and where. You can advertise goods and services on the website thus increasing your sales. You can also use the advertisements to make money. Below are some of the ways through which you can make money on Craigslist.

Sell items on Craigslist

The easiest way to make money on Craigslist is sell your own goods and services. Craigslist has millions of visitors from around the world and as such, there will be someone interested in what you offering. You can start by listing items that you no longer use, or by offering services in your area of expertise. Advertise your services on Craigslist and you can build a business out of it.

Find odd jobs

This is known as the gig section, and has ads for simple jobs that require very little skills. Although most of these gigs pay very little, they will keep you busy and provide some extra cash. Some of the common gigs posted include walking the dog, minor repairs, running errands, and also writing among others. You can apply for as many gigs as you want, since there are no restrictions. Establish yourself as the master of odd jobs and eventually you will have more jobs than you can handle.

Buy and re-sell items

Becoming a reseller is a great way of making money on craigslist. Look out for low valued products, buy and resell them at a profit on Craigslist or any other related site. Visit the free area and pick items which have a re-sellable value. Some of these items have only minor problems and with some repairs, they can fetch a substantial amount. You can also focus on real estate which pays highly, however requires a lot of start up capital.

Find a real job

There are so many ways to make money using job listings on Craigslist which are likely to match your skills and interest. Although Craigslist has been infiltrated with many scammers, it’s still a good place to source for employment. Create an impressive C.V which will separate you from the rest. Use clear and concise language, clearly stating your skills and expectations. Regularly check for any communication and respond promptly to interviews or any queries. It’s advisable to do a thorough background check before accepting any offers to establish their legitimacy.
