Craigslist Posting Companies

I received a phone call from a company that said they have ways of posting all of your inventory everyday to Craigslist in multiple locations. Has anyone used a company like this? Are they any good?

Some can be but many are routinely flagged by Craigslist. IThe best success I have had is with a Company called Blue Sky Marketing. They actually dob it right in my opinion. I'll dig through my stuff and e-you a contact.

Thanks. I checked out their website, but they don't have any example listings. Our Craigslist listings look pretty good with the HomeNet tool we use.

I have tried putting all of my inventory on CL in the past and didn't have much success. I have now just focused on the $10k and under cars and that seems to be working. We have a tool in the back of our website manager that generates code and it looks like it you are on our website when looking at our listing.

We've recommended various companies over the past 1-2 years. The best we've seen so far concentrating on Craigslist is CarGigi. The feedback from the dealers using it is 100% positive whether they're our clients or not. Yes, we do call to check vendors we recommend....

Steve,
If your happy with your Homenet results (a Cargigi re-seller I believe) simply buy a second market from them. It would be cheaper and give all your postings the same "Branded" feel.

So true Bryan, And if you really want to take it to a higher level add the Dealer Centric Program to it.It should get you 65 to 75 pre-approved apps to your store.Here is an example just click on the get pre-approved in seconds link, http://houston.craigslist.org/ctd/2319349662.html

Also take a look at Longo Toyota web site. http://www.longotoyota.com/financing/application.htm?vehicleId=17d3a5120a0a000200f42d53b079209a

The best part is it to comes with a 60day performance guarantee!
cost 299/mo and can be added to Craiglist, Car.com,Autotrader and all your your 3rd party sites.
I think the key to really doing well on craigslist is to do what everyone else is not doing.

I even set up all my dealers up with mynegotiation.com for a free 30 day trial, This dealer's site has a simple explanation of what we do and it may be something you can use also for Craiglist, Car.com,and Autotrader.
On the home page - you will see a slide show below the main picture titled - A New Way To Buy

If you click on that slide show - it opens an explanation for the customer.
