I use craigslist a lot and I get some great deals and make great deals on it.
just remember to add a few hundred for when they talk to "down" to the price you really want for it... lol.
also be sure to post big pictures so people can see the listing. I don't know if you know anything about HTML but simply using some HTML coding will make your listing stand out big time on craigslist....
you want to use line breaks to end a line and start a new one and multiple line breaks to add spaces in between lines.
The code for a line break is:
it's that simple.
To put a full size image into a listing on craigslist you will need to host that image at a place like www.photobucket.com
. which is probably your best best for hosting pictures anyway.
If your image file is larger than 1MB they will auto resize the image to 1024x768 which is a pretty decent sized image as it is, I like bigger so I handle my photo resizing myself but I do a lot of photography and so on so I know what I'm doing there....
Once your photo is hosted you can simply copy the image code that they give you for HTML full size and then plug that into your listing and good to go.... Simple, effective and will make your listing stand out like a soar thumb giving you the advantage.
If you host your images somewhere else then all you need to do is take the image location such at:
and place it into the right HTML tag to allow it to be displayed as an image such as this....:
and you are done......
also be sure to upload an image into the regular craigslist image thing for those who like to filter for only listings with images.
This will make you stand out and win you faster sales. There are a lot of other things that you could do but to be honest... I'm not giving out all my secrets.
