Way back in the day when we used craigslist, we used postlets.com. Their easy to use template made our listings stand out and look very nice.

Too bad we never sold them or got any buyers from CL. I think that site is dead in my area.

I have used postlets and also my local MLS to post adds to craigslist. Both had great platforms.

One by one.

It's really not that hard or time consuming. They even have a mobile app that can help make it easy and convenient to refresh them every couple of days.

I use postlets. Of course it is a one-by-one process..for me.
Clad response hold great interest for me.
As Catherine pointed out, CL isn't delivering like it did in the past.
I've got a new vision for CL that Clad may be instrumental is implementing.
If his price is reasonable, and Clad is not in any way affilated or associated with those spaming Trulia, I'll give it a run.

Hi Paul,

Good question. Craigslist does not provide the traffic that it used to years ago but it is still a good platform for real estate.

I use ListingDomains, the vendor I use to create single property websites for most of my listings. They provide a few different HTML options that one can simply copy/paste in the CL editor.
I post on Craigslist one by one through their editor.
Using a third party program is against Craigslist TOS.

I am also a fan of Postlets, but I don't see where anyone is indicating that they utilize the Manage Your Postlets function that the site offers. This will create a compilation of all of your Postlets which is accessable via a link at the bottom of each Postlet: "view my other properties". I have utilized different banners for what will appear on Craiglist, and what I tend to get the highest volume of click throughs on are the one that reference mulitple homes being available (ie: Four Waterfront Lots being offered by Local Real Estate Pro). Where the postlet will show one, the link will lead to the others and capture the Buyer. This is still a free service within Postlets and I have not purchased the a PRO Postlet to be able to give any feedback on that service.

Paul,
I like postlets and post one by one. First time it is some work but if you want to post it again to bring it up in the list, you can simply delete your posting and then repost it.

POSTLETS is the best.....but, sometimes one at a time the old fashioned way is good too!

Good Luck Paul!

Hi Paul-I use Postlets sometimes, but I also use Realbird. I really like Realbird because you can post directly to Craigslist, or several other sites. Also, you can easily make a video through Animoto right from Realbird. The other thing I like about Realbird is that it gives you a link to your slideshow that is unbranded, so you can post the link as a virtual tour in MLS. I also use the code to post the slideshows to my blogs/website. You can visit my website to see how that looks. Just click on one of the properties on the homepage and it will load the blog post for that property. The slideshow portion is all from Realbird.

I also use postlets and post one at a time. I haven't checked usage patterns, but that's a good idea.

Ditto Shannon.
Also you have the ability to modify the post appearing on Craigslist, with just a little keystroking. Postlet has really robust syndication.
If you have identified the Craigslist viewing patterns in New York revealing a time critical posting issue, then an automated posting service may be more appropriate. For instance, posting to Craigslist on Monday is not advised because on Monday morning there will be hundreds of brokers posting at the same time. Consider Thursday or Friday to be more appropriate to be top-of-page for the weekend home hunter. Here in Tampa Florida, citizens have proven they will bore into the pages to find the real estate they are looking for. Each area is different.
