Tips Regarding Craigslist

If you’re interested in advertising for your new business and want to use Craigslist to do so I wanted to give you a tip: Don’t provide your email. Hide it. If you have a website (and if you don’t, Hi, I might could help you out with that, lol), provide that, or your business phone, but choose the “hide” function for your email address. Spammers, scammers, and hacks alike loooove to filter through Craigslist and spam you with “so you like web design, get a free credit card!” offers… etc etc etc. Perhaps put it in the body, but even then they’ll spam you. This was a lesson hard-learned by me. I am now the proud receiver of about 10 spam emails a day on my business email.
