How to make $1 million a year in a year: Craigslist, kohls and other swimming pools
Posted On August 9, 2021
This is part two of a three-part series on how to make millions with your Craigslist ads.
Sell your product on Craigslist.
Craigslist is the largest marketplace for ads.
If you want to be successful, you’ll need to sell your products.
If your ad is free, the seller gets a commission.
If it’s $1,000 or more, the buyer gets a flat fee.
You may also get a percentage of the sale, or a cut of the money made on your ads.
Buy a car.
Craigslist ads can be pretty sweet.
If they’re free, you get a free car, too.
You can use your car to advertise your products, and it will earn you commissions for the seller.
If the seller pays you for the car, you earn money for them, too, and they get a cut.
Sell the same product on different Craigslist ads (and other ads) for different buyers.
There are several Craigslist ad platforms, including GoCrafter, Craigslist Marketplace, and Craigslist’s own Craigslist Ads platform.
If ads are free, they’re easy to use.
But if you’re a buyer, you can set your own ads to sell things on Craigslist, and your ads will earn commissions for you.
For example, if you want a new, nicer boat, you could create a Craigslist ad for a $200 boat, with a $50 commission.
You could also create ads for a boat that’s worth $1 or less.
Offer to sell a house, car, or other property.
Craigslist offers a wide range of different kinds of ad opportunities.
You’re also free to set ads on different ad platforms to sell houses, cars, or even your own properties.
Here are some examples of what you could sell on Craigslist: 5.
Sell an apartment.
Craigslist will let you sell an apartment for $5,000, but you’ll get nothing more than a flat commission.
For the same amount of money, you would get a commission of 15% on the sale.
Sell a house.
If someone else owns the house, you’re free to sell it for as little as $2,500.
You’ll earn a flat $25 commission.
You don’t have to pay anything for the right to sell any property on Craigslist if you choose to.
You might pay a commission, but that’s usually $1 to $2 per sale.
Sell shares of a company.
If a company sells shares of itself, you’d get a flat 5% commission for the sale on Craigslist ads, plus the commission for selling the shares.
You get an extra commission if you sell a home on Craigslist for $250,000.
You also get an additional commission if the sale is for more than $1.10 million.
Sell real estate.
You earn commission if a seller offers to sell real estate for $1 per square foot.
You would earn an additional $1 commission if your listing is for 1,000 square feet or less, plus $1 for every square foot over 1,600.
You receive a flat 20% commission if any land you buy for $100,000 is sold on Craigslist or GoCraigslist.
You wouldn’t earn that commission if it was for more, like $2 million.
Sell other products.
You aren’t limited to selling one product, either.
If, for example, you have a clothing line, you may be able to advertise that you’re selling a line of apparel that includes shirts, pants, shoes, or hats.
Sell on eBay.
You’d earn $5 per sale on eBay if the seller buys a piece of jewelry, or $5 if the listing is $1 each.
Sell for cash.
You won’t earn a commission if someone offers to buy the same item on Craigslist at $2 or $3.
You only earn commissions if you offer to buy it for $3,000 instead of $2.
You make the same money, and the seller makes more.
Sell through a broker.
If Craigslist ads are offered by a broker, you might be able do something a little different.
You probably can’t sell an item on the Craigslist platform for $2 if the buyer’s asking price is $200 or more.
But you can sell an identical item for $500 or less if the customer is willing to pay $200 more than the asking price.
Here is an example of selling an item for a flat rate of $200 for $300, or selling an identical product for $350, or any number between.
Sell in person.
You will get commissions on Craigslist sales if you are a seller or a buyer.
But in person, you won’t.
You must call to set up the sale
