I have to admit, I discounted this at first too. I don't have a water damage restoration or carpet cleaning company, but I am a marketing company for those types of clients. I wrote off Craigslist even in my own business, however, I do get reaches and sales from Craigslist, so re-implemented it. It still isn't my most successful place to get business, but it is good enough that we do have it implemented into our company's promotion. I am sure everyone wouldn't mind an extra sale here or there. You're welcome for the plug Craigslist.

We use Craigslist everyday and Backpages every week. We've had major success with our ads, even though Craigslist is mainly price shoppers. Must of our customers off of Craiglist are renters, buyers or sellers. Rarely do we get customers from Craigslist that just want their carpets cleaned. We did get our largest client off of Craigslist, the CEO of a Property Management company. He refers us to other large businesses and in turn he receives huge discounts on his rental properties.
 
I know a lot of people think Craigslist isn't for them, and that is fine. Having a professional design Ad on Craigslist that links back to your web site is key. Many of the clients that use our forum come from Craigslist. And we get their e-mail and phone number to call and do a follow ups. We also send them monthly newsletters via e-mail. Repeat clients from Craigslist is small however, the referrals we receive are quite large. PLUS Craigslist is Free. And you can't beat Free

Another thing I forgot to ad was try your best not to post a price per room on Craigslist. Below are our examples of Craigslist Ad/Flyers
