I recently purchased a couple of items from small, boutique businesses halfway around the world, simply because I liked the look of their stuff on instagram. I’m funding that selling stuff on eBay is beneficial, but I’m wasting about 10% of my stock on “lost” items and buyers “gaming the system” by making complaints. The Facebook trust factor is a huge plus!

I’m about to set up another side hustle and it will be almost completely reliant on social media to drive traffic and buyers to my site!

In a large city you’re looking at hundreds of thousands of potential buyers on Craigs List. But I think that it gets back to trust. CL has a lot of skepticism when it comes to who you’re dealing with and the postings are so random. Part of what I think makes the FB phenomenon work is the fact that usually your friends are a lot like you and like the same kind of stuff. Therefore when you’ve got something to sell, you’ve got a somewhat relative audience that would be way more interested than strangers you might find on CL.

It’s simple – I’ll give them that. But how anyone actually finds my posts I’ve got to wonder sometimes.

I’ve always had mostly good luck with CL, but every now and again I’ll post something that gets no bites also. That’s kind of amazing that even after you made it free still no one wanted it :)

Neighbors swapping stuff? That’s practically what happens when you have a neighborhood garage sale. That’s pretty resourceful.

When people know who you are and how you live, I’m sure that helps give them confidence that you take really good care of your possessions and that will encourage them to buy.

Nevertheless, if you don’t care so much about it as long as you can sell your stuff fast instead of building a business around it, I think it’s definitely a great place!
