I personally find CL to be full of so many scammers in regular categories, like pets and apartments for example, that I have 0 faith in the site. I wouldn't trust it to click a link or even call about something for free. It's become a cesspool of sorts, despite all the potential it has/had. IMO anyway.

You can't directly post affiliate links, I know that. And if your ad is misleading it can get flagged. I've tried a few tactics, both blackhat and honest, with no luck. But there's always a way. ..

I have sold in the past some affilitate products but it's so filled with trolls who flag even honest offers, unless you're a local brick and mortar business I don't think it's worth the investment of time and aggravation anymore for affiliate marketing.

I've bought courses on how to "make it work" but they are so convoluted and require you to have so many bogus accounts, my eyes glaze over reading them. I guess that means it's a valid opportunity for "someone"! Not me!

In the first place, I don't think Craiglist is created for the purpose of affiliate marketing.

I asked some similar questions on this topic of Craigs List. Perhaps some of those answers might prove to be benefical for you to read about on this topic:

here are the 2 links:

I am also still interested to learn more about using CL. Hope these 2 links here, along with your question that you asked Askdeban will help to keep this conversation going with more helpful tips, and suggestions on how members can perhaps still use CL for affiliate products, if done properly.
