    Hi guys, I was pricing a job yesterday and the potential client for some reason suggested I advertise on craigs list. Has anyone done this? I have looked for things on it but never for a service provider. I wonder if anyone has gotten any calls from it?
    Thanks for your time guys and have a great weekend.

    I have done it and haven't gotten any work from it. will put your name high up on the search engines. It can't hurt to put up a free ad, although most on here say that mainly scrubs post on craigslist.

    I am surprised but I will look into it. To be honest I kind of had the impression that it was a scrubs thing. Maybe I have to start looking in the right sections:dancing:

    Guys have asked me why I advertise on craigslist and its this simple: I get good accounts every year from the site and its free. I just signed up a $6,000 pre paid account from craigslist. I would go for it if I were you. Good luck!

    hey imon there, free ads cant hurt, even if you get nothing out of it, it didnt cost you anything.

    Do it!! I get more calls from craigslist than my yellow page ad. Go figure and it's FREE. You will get some price shoppers but I have also landed some good annual contract accounts from it.
