How to promote your Kijiji crap

Self-proclaimed "Google Expert" SavvyK has written an article about the best options for promoting your Kijiji ad, even if it's a poorly-written piece of crap. A small piece of the advice:

You need to assess the pricing of the different options against the benefits, and what you are trying to do with your advert. For example, selecting the 3rd option, Top Ad, enables your advert to appear in the top section of its category for a week, at a cost of $9.99. So instead of appearing on Page 10 (and worse!) you are on Page One for a week.
One issue that keeps coming up on the Kijiji forums is that people pay to promote their ads, the ads get deleted, and they don't get their money back. Of course, policy states that they won't get their money back. But people still get pissed off about Kijiji keeping their money because they broke the rules.

The other frequent complaint is that people pay to get their ad at the top, but it gets held by the "random" 24-hour hold. Well, kids, FYI, you can't buy your way out of the spam-trap. Once your Kijiji ad gets out of limbo, you'll get the promotion you paid for. Not a minute sooner.

How did I make a steady income using Kijiji and craigslist?

There are basically 2 groups of people making money on Craigslist and Kijiji

Group 1: Business folks selling their products or services.

Group 2: Regular folks selling personal belongings they don’t want anymore

There is a secret 3rd group, which I honestly don’t know if any significant amount of people exists in this category. This 3rd kind falls somewhere in between group 1&2 and you’ll see what I mean shortly…visit:

Kijiji is not that bad I guess if you know how to use it. And as far as I know it works pretty good on most of the devices. You can use it on your Laptop, Desktop computer if you want.
