If you are not a good content creator and writer, then you should stock up on some quality “Master Resell Rights” (also called MRR) eBooks. “Private Label Rights” (PLR) is also worth a look, but you may have to put a name to the product if it doesn’t have an official author.
Either MRR or PLR will allow you to keep all the sales profit from your sales. You can find plenty of MRR and PLR to claim as your own by “Googling” those words, or even buying from the WarriorForum.com direct from product creators.
Because Craigslist is free, essentially your overheads are low, just your blog, which you can get free from Blogger.com or WordPress.com.
Warning on affiliate links
Bear in mind that you are NOT permitted to place affiliate links in your Craigslist classified ads, and your account will be closed if it is found to have an affiliate link.
Tiny.url links – banned
It is also worthwhile addressing the fact that Craigslist does not allow you to post “tiny.url” hyperlinks on your ad, and if you do, it will be closed. So any URL cloaker website tools like bud.url, tiny.url etc, will not work. You need full url addresses in your classified ads and remember to try and keep your hyperlinks to your blog or website only used on one ad in one location at a time. You can make your website link unique by adding a folder/directory extension like:
You can also create a sub-domain in your website domain:
There are a few companies now offering “ad tracking” for your Craigslist classified ad, you may want to give them a look, one is CLASSIFIED AD TRACKER. This service comes at a cost, so try with caution.
