I have developed a software program/service that I want to market to owners and property managers of single family rental homes.
Posting a home for rent - is free on Craigslist, so most people advertise on this site.
There are two parts to this:
Since advertisers generally do not include their email addresses in the ad - to contact an advertiser you need to use the reply system.
Need someone who is experienced and knowledgeable in sending bulk emails to Craigslist advertisers using Craigslist Reply System.
I do not even know if it possible - since I want to send out up to 1000 emails to unique advertisers per week to start.
I will be sending emails to advertisers in the Phoenix, Arizona USA area. to start.
If I find out that someone can do this and confirm the emails get through craigslist's system and get to the advertiser - will expand the program to other cities.
Tell me if you have done this and explain to me the problems and your workarounds.
The email program you use must be able to send html pages - as I have images, php variables included on links and will have google analytics coding in the body of the email.
I will supply the emails to be used - I have 4 different ones - different messages to determine which gets the greatest response.
I have a program called WebHarvy which is a data miner.. I can pull all the information I need from Craigslist and supply you with a CSV file with the info you will need.
But if you can handle part one of this - the sending of emails - we can discuss this being both the data mining and doing the email send outs.
This will be ongoing - sending out a determined amount of emails each month - ranging from 1000 a week to potentially 10,000 per week.
What I need from you is the following
1 Your past experience in doing this craigslist
2. Problems and work arounds you will use so I do not blacklisted - since my company's name and link to website are part to the emails
3. Confirming you have a system in place to handle the volume in the event this is even possible.
4. Confirming you can also do the data mining if I decide to have you do it all.
I have no idea what the value of this job is - so bid your minimum amount and we will go from their.
Again looking for someone has the experience and can do this weekly for me.
