Craigslist western mass: I’ve been working with Craigslist for a couple of years and I’ve never seen a better job anywhere. They have a very simple mission, to connect buyers and sellers. It can be hard to see the value of that mission when you think about it, but it’s actually very deep — in fact, we would go so far as to say that Craigslist is the most complex application ever built.
And because of Craigslist’s complexity, most people who use the site understand only a very small part of what it does and how it does it. They don’t understand its whole purpose, they don’t know what their role on the site is or why they should care. But then again, most people do that on other sites as well so nothing surprises them there at all.
So I thought I would share this with you in case you want to learn more about Craigslist Western Mass (CWSM) and find out why we call this app “the best job ever built for buyers and sellers!”

Craigslist is a great, relatively cheap way to reach people in the Philadelphia area. But it’s not great for building audiences (or even doing good business advertising) because the demographics are too narrow. It’s often said that Craigslist is for old people and young people don’t use it. And I guess that’s true to an extent — but what about everyone else?
I started using Craigslist some time ago, but I didn’t really file as much as I could have because I was terrified of getting arrested for selling marijuana. But one day I was walking down the street with a friend and we came across a sign which read “Craigslist Selling Services”. And by “selling services”, I mean “selling what we do best: selling things on Craigslist!” It was so clear that this was exactly why we had gotten started in the first place: We didn’t want to sell anything. We wanted to make money, and we did it better than anyone else out there.
But then a different moment came along: The sign changed to “Craigslist Selling Services – No Drugs Here!” And then my friend and I realized that this might be our chance at perfecting our craft and turning into millionaires before anyone else did. So now when we walk down the street in Philly — or wherever else there is a sign that says craigslist selling services — we look at those first two words and think nothing bad about them at all! . . . . . .
In this post, I will be trying to break down the process of how we ended up building a marketplace for people who want to sell stuff on craigslist western mass and a platform for sellers to find buyers. My main purpose here is to show that there are a lot of different ways to make money on craigslist western mass and that there are many different ways to work with it.
I’m going do this in two parts: first, what our focus was when we started, which was on democratizing the sale of physical goods; and second, how we got from there (and the lessons learned along the way) into a publicly available marketplace…
When I began working at craigslist Western Mass, my goal was to make it easier for people who wanted to sell something on craigslist Western mass — whether that be their car or clothes or whatever — to get paid for doing so. As part of that mission, I developed an interest in the state of Craigslist Western mass property listings. (This is not the same as other kinds of property listings.)
What initially set me off was how difficult it was to find information about Craigslist Western mass properties around Chicago; not only were they often hidden from view by “secret listings” which required linking your profile via email address or phone number, but you had no way of getting at them before you decided if you wanted one. The solution in this case would be for someone like me who had some knowledge about craigslist Western mass properties (and was willing to share it) to post information about them on Craigslist Western mass. This could then be made accessible by someone else who wanted those properties too (via email address or phone number).
As time went by and I worked more closely with craigslist Western mass, I began focusing more on making it easier for people who did want these kinds of listings — whether they were selling their car or clothes or whatever — but were too shy (or too scared) to ask anyone directly. By doing this, however, I saw that more than half the properties listed were being sold without having been advertised at all! If a seller posted an ad in CraigsList Western Mass listing his car for sale but didn’t tell anyone where he lived and had never been contacted by any buyer, why would anyone think they could ever get him paid? That’s the fundamental problem with posting your crap on craigslist Western mass: if you don’t advertise yourself right away and then get no responses till later when
