Craigslist is one of the most popular advertising forums online. I am going to give you a few ideas on how to earn money with Craigslist. This will be relatively short and to the point.
1. Sell Your Stuff – You can list items on Craigslist to sell.
2. Resell Free Stuff - Look through the free section in your local area and get whatever you can acquire that may be of worth. All that is left is to resell it. Try ebay or sell it locally.
3. Find a Job – You can look through job postings and maybe land a job.
4. Finding Writing Jobs – There are sections on Craigslist (gigs/writing & writing/editing) where people and companies are looking for writers. Contact a few of them if you are interested.
5. Offer SEO services - There are several companies looking for people that know SEO. Look through the Web/ Info Design section located under jobs to find such opportunities.
6. Promote Your Money Site Through the Discussion Forum – You have to do this strategically and of course, you would need a website where you could make money (affiliate site,etc). Find the topic that is most relevant to your website and join in on the discussions offering helpful advice.
Leave a link back to your money site (no affiliate links) when it can be helpful or act as a resource. You need to be a member for a week before you are able to leave links though.
As stated above, this was short but you now have six different ideas on how to earn money with Craigslist. They can work very well too.
