If you want to make money quickly with Craigslist there are a few things you need to know before you list your first item. The first thing you need to know is that no matter what you are trying to sell you need to make sure you did some research on other items similar to yours because you will want to price your item accordingly. If you don't know what other similar items are selling for then you could end up selling your item way below its actual value or possibly never selling your item because it was priced too high.
Once you understand the process to just list the item you need to come up with a great pitch page to get the potential buyers to call or email you. For me using capitalized letters and also quality pictures is a sure fire way to get people to call. Also if you did your research and found a couple items similar to yours put the information you found in the page because if your item is better in any way or cheaper then people will most likely pick your item over the other ones.
Now that you understand what it takes to list items on Craigslist I want to briefly discus what the most popular items are to sell. In different parts of the country and world there are items that sell better but for the most part selling electronics, tools, and household items are the best to sell. Now when it comes to which type of each of these you will just need to experiment with all of them and see what works best in your area. I know for me in my state selling electronics is a big money maker which allows me to make money quickly with very little effort. Just remember that once you sell off all your personal items you will need to look both online and offline for great deals so you can keep your money making business going.
