How I’ve Made Thousands

Off Of Craigslist…

Without Really Trying

Dear Student,

I’m Michael Senoff, founder and CEO of HardToFindSeminars.com.

For the last five years, I’ve interviewed the world’s best business and marketing minds.

And along the way, I’ve created a successful home-based publishing business all from

my two-car garage.

When my first child was born, he was very sick, and it was then that I knew I had to have a business that I could operate from home.

Now, my challenge is to build the world’s largest resource for online, downloadable audio business interviews.

I knew that I needed a site that contained strategies, solutions, and inside information to help you operate more efficiently I’ve learned a lot in the last five years, and today I’m going to show you the skills that you need to survive.

It is my mission, to assist those that are very busy with their careers And to really make my site different from every other audio content site on the web, I have decided to give you access to this information in a downloadable format.

Now, let’s get going.

San Diego California -Tel. 858-274-7851 How I’ve Made Thousands Off Of Craigslist…Without Really Trying You’ve probably heard of Craigslist by now. The huge “classifiedsection” website that lets you place and respond to ads for free. And you’ve probably guessed that many people in your area are making a killing off this site. Well, you’d be right. But you can too, and it’s easier than you probably think.

It’s like I always tell my sons, “You make money when you buy.” It’s the secret to most successful businesses, and it’s one of the secrets to making money on Craigslist. And I’ve made thousands using the site, not just by securing free-to-cheap items and relisting them for much more. But I also use the site to hire cheap help and save money everywhere – car repairs, expert advice, computer-geek help, tutoring for my kids, interior decorating, hauling jobs... you name it. I basically pay about a tenth of the price I’d have to pay if I picked up the Yellow Pages all the time.

And in this two-part audio, you’ll hear exactly how I do it.

–  –  –

After 20 years in the auto industry, my wife’s cousin lost his job, and (like many Americans right now) was having a hard time finding a new one. So, I decided to show him how to “hustle” on Craigslist. We brought up the free section and found something in our area right away. And in Part One of this seminar, you’ll hear how we made $540 for three hours of “work” that day.

Not every deal is going to be that easy, and not every free item is going to be worth your time. But there are great deals to be made from the free section of Craigslist, and in this audio, you’ll hear how to spot the ones that are worth it, how to secure them so that the owner takes down their ad and only deals with you, and how to flip everything fast. You’ll also hear…  The fastest way to determine an item’s real value – and a little story about the lesson I almost learned the hard way Listen to hours of free interviews, case studies and how to consultant training at 1 http://www.myfirsthmaclient.com For more interviews on marketing consulting go to http://www.HardToFindSeminars.com © MMXII JS&M Sales & Marketing, Inc. San Diego California -Tel. 858-274-7851  Key strategies for finding “distressed properties” on Craigslist – Sadly, many people bought expensive items when the economy was good and now have to sell those items for pennies on the dollar – here’s how to spot them on Craigslist  The four “phrases that pay” for most Craigslist ads – include these and you’ll sell easier, faster, and more  The easiest way to weed out the flakes you find on Craigslist, so you can get down to serious business  How to combine garage sales with Craigslist for extra deals – and the one item to always keep your eye out for at garage sales because they sell on Craigslist fast, and go for practically nothing at garage sales  The real difference between eBay and Craigslist

Part Two: How To Live Off Of Craigslist

I don’t need another main source of income, but you could easily focus on Craigslist full time and make a living off of it if you wanted to. And in Part Two, you’ll hear some of the creative ways to do that just by buying, selling, saving, and partnering… in your neighborhood and beyond. If you keep your eyes open for deals, you’ll find them, and in this audio you’ll hear some of the best ways including…  The exact word-for-word ads I use to find cheap mechanics, tutors, computer geeks, interior designers, etc.

 The "no-sweat, no-brainer" way I saved $420 on car repairs – and had the mechanic come to me!

 2 of the easiest sellers on Craigslist – and the best places to find these easy-to-turn-around items for cheap  The little-known way to sell your consulting services on Craigslist  The weird (but effective) lessons you can learn about Craigslist from the megahit show Storage Wars  How to be safe when dealing with strangers on Craigslist  My personal Craigslist horror story – or “why you need to make sure you have a good password for your account”  The one $5 item you can buy at Home Depot that will instantly make most old, worn-out unsellable things look brand new again There are so many opportunities and strategies out there for making money off of Craigslist. You just need to keep your mind (and eyes) Listen to hours of free interviews, case studies and how to consultant training at 2 http://www.myfirsthmaclient.com For more interviews on marketing consulting go to http://www.HardToFindSeminars.com © MMXII JS&M Sales & Marketing, Inc. San Diego California -Tel. 858-274-7851 open for ideas and deals. And in this audio, you’ll hear everything you need to know to get started.

Michael: Let’s concentrate on me helping you understand some of the things that I’ve learned through my experience with Craigslist. I appreciate you being willing to discuss Craigslist with me, because I love Craigslist, and there’s so many things I have used it for. I’m also a big fan of when it comes to telling stories, because I think people can really learn from other people’s experiences, and I think within these stories of how I’ve used Craigslist, how I’ve bought stuff, how I’ve sold stuff, how I’ve hired people to do particular services, you’re going to learn a lot.

A lot of the questions that the students from Hard To Find Seminars submitted to me about Craigslist will probably, in one way or another, be answered through these stories. If they’re not, we can go through some of those questions, and ones that weren’t touched on, we can certainly cover. I don’t know if we’re going to get through all of this content in the next hour and 50 minutes, but we’ll do our best.

Clayton: Okay.

Michael: Figured it’d be pretty good to talk about my most recent experiences, and then we’ll go back in time. The one at the very bottom of the page is Retail Display Table from Abercrombie & Fitch. I’d like to tell you this story about what transpired here.

My wife’s cousin was laid off from a job in the automotive industry. He had been in the industry for 20 years, and the auto dealership had laid him off. So he was without a job. He was going crazy. He had never really been unemployed for an extended period of time, and he started thinking about being an entrepreneur, or doing a business on his own.

Listen to hours of free interviews, case studies and how to consultant training at 3 http://www.myfirsthmaclient.com For more interviews on marketing consulting go to http://www.HardToFindSeminars.com © MMXII JS&M Sales & Marketing, Inc. San Diego California -Tel. 858-274-7851 He knew I was entrepreneurial, and he said, “Hey, Mike. What can I do? I’m going crazy here. I need to make some money. I had told him some stories about Craigslist. So I said, “Vivian. why don’t you come up to my office, and let’s talk about some ideas of what you can do, maybe possibly buying or selling, or something to keep yourself busy while you’re in the process of looking for a job”.

He came up to my office, and we talked for a while. Then I said, “Well, you know what, Vivian? Let’s go onto Craigslist and let’s take a look in the free section”. Craigslist has a section titled “Free” and this is a section where people can list items that they’re giving away for free.

Many people will give their refrigerators away for free because they don’t want to pay to have them disposed or taken to the dump. People will do construction, and they’ll have wood that’s left over, and instead of paying or doing the labor of taking it and disposing of it, they’ll put an ad up on Craigslist and they’ll give it away for free, trying to find someone who can use the scrap wood.

People will give their microwave ovens for free because they believe they have no value. People are in a situation where they have to be out of their apartment, or they’re being evicted from their home, and they have to be out very quickly and they need to dispose of items. So one great way is to put it up on Craigslist for free so someone will come take it away.

All these huge projection TV sets that people paid $5000 and $6000 for just a short 7, 8, 9, 10 years ago, you can’t even give them away.

They’re worthless because all the flat screens have taken over, and the flat screens are so inexpensive, and I even experienced it. I had a big screen, Sony XBRTV. I remember buying it when my 12 year old son was not even born. We paid $4000 for it. I couldn’t even sell it for $50. I had to put it up on Craigslist for free to get someone to take this thing away, because it cost money to dispose of a big screen TV. It worked perfectly.

So we went onto the free section, and the very first thing we saw was a listing that said, “Free tables,” and there was a image. We clicked on the image, and there were these beautiful round display tables. I noticed that the display tables were in Claremont. That’s where my office is located. Under each ad, you can see where the item is located.

Next to the description or the headline of the ad is location. So anyone looking for items to buy, they’re looking for something that is close to Listen to hours of free interviews, case studies and how to consultant training at 4 http://www.myfirsthmaclient.com For more interviews on marketing consulting go to http://www.HardToFindSeminars.com © MMXII JS&M Sales & Marketing, Inc. San Diego California -Tel. 858-274-7851 them. They have an idea how far they would have to drive to go get it.

I noticed it was very close to us. We clicked on the image. There was no phone number to call, but we had the address.

So I e-mailed the person who placed the ad and I said, “Are the display tables still available?” and she said, “Yes”. I said to Vivian, “Do you want to go check them out?” and they looked like little small round tables. You couldn’t really tell from the image.

We get in the car and we drive just about a mile and a half, and we go into the building. Then there are these beautiful display tables. There are five of them. They had a wood-like laminate on them, they were round, they had nice square legs, and she needed them out of her place immediately because she was having a truck that same day that was delivering more goods into her little warehouse, and she had no room for these display tables.

They were very heavy and bulky. They were 60 inches in diameter across, round. They were about 30 inches high. These were display tables that came out of the famous retailer called Abercrombie & Fitch.

She was giving them away for free, but the problem was, where am I going to put them, do they come apart, who’s going to move them, I don’t have a truck.

These were the challenges I had. I knew they were valuable. I knew right there, that right there is $100 a table, easy, if I go ahead and relist them and I have the patience to sell them. I just need a place to put them. Now, fortunately, my home, I have a large area outside that I can store the tables.
