STARTING A COTTAGE INDUSTRY and using CRAIGSLIST as a promotional TOOL
Is that all I am to you, Anita? A TOOL?
No Craig Newmark, saintly founder of CRAIGS LIST, that’s certainly not all you are to me, at all. You and your list are life itself. In fact, I had cats and after years, I got one perfect, male nearly bald tabbie cat and I named him ‘Craig Newmark’ out of respect for you. I really esteem you, Craig. See, I am a single mother who stays HOME in my office, doing my little cottage industry and advertising it in your pages. I MAKE MONEY for rent and food & I USE your wonderful CRAIGS LIST which as you know is an onLINE classified of free ADS and is hugely popular. Place your ad in every city of the world, for free! THAT’S HOW I RUN the FREE SEMINARS also an ASTROLOGY BUSINESS and if I were younger, I’d run a tutoring business, teach basic web skills to kids! I finally did PUT UP A WEBPAGE TO TRAIN YOUNGSTERS in BASIC PC TRIX! If I were younger, I’d create my own garden/ drip emitter watering business, landscaping for the homes of Beverly Hills, actually I foodscape. And I’d use CRAIGS.
SHARP TYPIST AVAILABLE. I KNOW
EDITOR FOR PROSE, KNOW GRAMMAR…
I have studied dozens of cottage industries, other people’s. so if I could clone myself, I’d run a few dozen businesses right outta my house if I weren’t nearly 70 yrs old. As I stayed home raising four kids they watched me run my biz & learned from their Ma and they are all CEO’s of their own cottage industries today.
A COTTAGE INDUSTRY is a venerable institution (try 7,000 years old,) which allows the SINGLE MOTHER to have cats and babies, stay home and paint oil canvases, write novels, clean the house, pay the rent, rock the cradle and watch over teens after school! .The CotInd allows a woman to pursue some art form that might pay rent, painting, clay, writing articles while you move a cradle, feed bottles, caring for family most of the day and then you can maybe spend an hour doing something that pays rent like healing, therapy. Freud worked out of his home! If you were a holistic healer or a LANDSCAPER, CRAIGS LIST would get you clients. Of course CELERY 101 is still the best way to attract clients.
Even as a senior, I run a small cottage industry. An online HOROSCOPE/ PALM READING/ TAROT reading business CYBER GYPSY ANITA . I don’t count the free, HOW TO BE LUCKY IN LOVE”ONLINE 120 classroom SEMINAR and training. And the FREEBIE SEMINARS of the MASTER JULES. And the VULTURE SANDWICH HOW TO DO A CHARITY AND PREVENT FAMINE INDEX PAGE, and the HOW TO DO INTERNATIONAL IMPORT/ EXPORT PAGE, and all are my form of being a “TOUT of a GRANNY” donating MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION to the community like Johnny Appleseed and hopefully changing the planet. The website instructs beauties in marrying billionaires and doing international import/export businesses as a charity to feed third world villagers. The Master Jules is his website, his teachings. (He was a self made multi millionaire and teaches youth the secrets of doing that.
My clients for ASTROLOGY are beautiful rich married women all over the USA and my students at the LUCK IN LOVE WEBSITE are even MORE beautiful than the movie stars, except they’re POOR SINGLE women all over the USA, Europe and ASIA. I reach them through CRAIGS LIST. (the subject of this article.)I target beautiful girls using the “TALENT” section, creating an ‘ad’ for wannabe actors, and GROUPS for folks who seek to LINK or network. The ad’s headline or banner reads: ”BEST JOB IN SHOW BUSINESS if you are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS.” Then, it goes on to say, quit show biz, marry a billionaire, we teach you how, then do charity for the third world. Create cottage industries abroad and do import/export. And I have dozens of website pages on how to do it, and the AD LEADS THEM TO WEBPAGES. That’s the first thing you do with a CRAIGS LIST AD!!
The reason that I STAY HOME AND DO THIS ORIGINALLY used to be that I had four little babies, Paloma, Miguel, Demian and Luis, whose Poppa was in another country without a dictionary that had the word “ALIMONY” in it. They’re raised now, so the new reason is that I don't drive a car! Did for the last fifty years, but now as city of L.A. wants $1000 dollars on car insurance, and they are so bothersome as to demand another 1000$ for that driving infraction ticket (caught with no 2004 license tags and expired license), penalties for not showing up at court with TAG IN HAND could easily double that amt…, as I had no way to GET TAGS, FIX THE CAR MOTOR, DRIVE to court nor money for the ticket! Then they want a smogging exhaust system on the car, which is so old it won't pass smog test! Well, it’s a 24 year old car! IF YOU EXHALED you’d flunk! I have to rebuild motor, for a third thousand dollar bill, no that would be a FOURTH THOUSAND dollar fee. SO basically, I gotta stay home and make money off my desk, somehow. Just pay the rent. A THOUSAND DOLLAR BILL EVERY 30 DAYS on that one! But thanks to CRAIGS LIST, it’s EASY!
YOU probably have a job that pays more than that an HOUR. Well, I don't! I DO NOT and WILL NOT work for another person or a corporation. Tried it once, at a PSYCHIC HOTLINE. A hundred phones in a room the size of a football field. MANAGERS listening over your shoulder. NOT FOR ME!
DOING ONE AD a day for astrology isn't enough. INSTEAD, I do two ads a day at Craigslist.org special CREATIVE SERVICES SECTION. But then I do another two in the LESSONS area, the ad is totally reworded so it's about ASTROLOGY and Palmistry LESSONS, ONLINE. So that's another two. THEN I DO a third pair of ads, THE "HOW TO MARRY MONEY and get out of STRIPPING/ ACTING/ DANCING/ MODELING non-CAREER" rewording ENTRY LINES each time so the ROBOT doesn't realize I did same ad twice, and put that ad in NEW YORK Los ANGELES TALENT SECTION as a JOB. I even brazenly say MARRIAGE IS THE BEST JOB EVER. GET OUT OF SHOW BUSINESS!
Then I do endless other subjects, but how do I DO IT? If you've ever done an ad at Craigs you know their ever prowling ROBOT catches you after TWO ADS and dices them! To escape detection, I do several things. a.) only two ads per subject. B.) I used to reboot with a DSL switch after six ads or so. The modem box facilitating your DSL SERVICE allowed one to turn OFF one’s CONNECTION to DSL at your server and be assigned a new DNS NUMBER. You don't know it but each time you use DSL it loads a 34.35.677.89 four number digit into your box which you SPURT everywhere as a fingerprint! IF you use CRAIGS, switch it every ten minutes. But I don’t do that anymore. Cuz Craigs changed the machinery. I just change the front few lines of my ad text and the ROBOT doesn’t recognize that ad! So I may post it at CREATIVE SERVICES, or ‘SCHOOLS/ CLASSES” as my webinars are classes in themselves, like HOW TO BE A STAR/ PALM/ ASTROLOGY FORTUNE TELLING MYSTIC IN ONE WEEK OF FREE READING.
I am committed to my work, my articles, my websites, my free seminars which I ADVERTISE only at CRAIGS LIST. I offer gals a way to STUDY their way into the BLUE BLOOD HIGH SOCIETY where they can MARRY WEALTHY MEN which I certainly consider a job! And raise kids with educations and do something for the world with philanthropy. So I use CRAIG and keep on rebooting, reassigning myself a new DNS ENTRY number, it's automatic, the server does it when you stick a hairpin in back of your MODEM. Ask your server tekkie. He'll tell you.
To do two ads a day, you have to KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO LIST YOURSELF. For me, it can be TALENT JOBS SOUGHT, or the AUDITIONS/ ENTERTAINMENT BIZ type JOBS. Or I go to ARTISTS COMMUNITY POSTINGS as artistic girls are the beauties in every country…. OR LESSONS OFFERED. OR GROUPS, OR THERAPY LESSONS, and I post a dozen articles on how to DO MASSAGE FOR A LIVING without tedious city licenses. (I post all the different trainings at Craigs. They're all different so the HUMANS that comb thru the ads at Craigs San Francisco OFFICE don't ever notice I'm there. I personally have a hundred different emails at gmail, yahoo, hotmail, etc. I'm worth it cuz I OFFER ALL OF THAT to the YOUTH OF THIS VILLAGE. I teach people in FARAWAY COUNTRIES how to open an IMPORT/ EXPORT biz that targets the third world’s starving villages. (I used to run such a biz when I was 21, but my partner ended up with millions and I stayed barefoot and pregnant in MEXICO for most of the sixties! Unable to do the SCOURING of countryside that partner required I do. BAZAAR FOLKLORICO worked, bigtime, for HIM! The Master Jules was my biz partner, married to my best galpal. He finally left our Sunset Strip boutique of décor, artisanry, clothing, jewelry, etc and moved to THE DECORATORS’ DISTRICT and made huge huge amts. I run his spiritual teachings website today and also place two ads a day in CRAIGS for the late, great departed JULES BUCCIERI, the best guru ever!
Well, CRAIG ALLOWS only ONE POSTING in one section, but you can do a second in another section and get by but THAT is their limit. Though I’m not sure. I have to ask CRAIG one of these days. I suppose they have limits, but as I have to reach a thousand people a day, every day, in every city of the world, I simply choose to ignore those limits and as LAURA HUXLEY SAID, only a SAINT can bend the laws And I BEND THEM. The secret is keeping an EMAIL easily accessible with your text. CHANGE the text each time and mail yourself a new copy, subject line is easy to find in your lineup, TEXT CRAIGS LIST GARDEN GIVEAWAY or TEXT CRAIG SECRETARY JOB!I hit subject line and bingo all the TEXT CRAIGS just line up in one section. As I have 3,000 emails stored, I need a subject linecollation feature, with netscape 4 all version I have it.
MULTIPLE EMAIL ADDRESSES – I go to GMAIL, YAHOO, LYCOS, AIM. AOL and get other addresses

HOW TO MAKE ADS
FIRST create some stunning text. Mine are long, maybe 3 paragraphs or up to six paragraphs but in GIST they are this:
· * * WORLD’s BEST ASTROLOGER. COURTNEY (the rocker, Nirvana widow) LOVE PLUGS her in her album jacket, AMERICA’S SWEETHEART! 60$ an hour, 30$ an half hour, Phone 818-774-1939 for natal horoscope read to you on phone!!!* * * (to you I’m 12$ the half hour, that’s just for big city rich yuppies.)
Or “GALS? Had your heart broken one time too many? Go to the luck in love website right now and learn how to HAVE POWER OVER MEN, date, inspire a man to want to marry you and then how to run a charity like Oprah. (Craigs doesn’t always let URLS in so I make it clear it’s an url by writing it out that way “LUCK in love dot com” or I use my freebie websites which CRAIGS CANNOT SPOT! http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology/perfeat.html(THIS JUST IN, CRAIGS stopped banning websites. Now the main site LUCKINLOVE.COM can go on as a live link.
You get ten free websites if you sign up with EARTHLINK and a free reading from me if you tell them astrology at earthlink told you to do it. And you can put ads on craigs like crazy too.
HOW TO DO ADS FAST!! I have the text for my ad in an email in my browser’s “mail client”area, right handy, and I COLLATE my EMAILS to “SUBJECT and line up THE WORD TEXT in about l00 emails. SUBJEcT LINE READING : TEXT LOVE WEBSITE TEXT COOKING, TEXT IMPORTS. I do cut and paste, meaning inhale the text INSIDE MY MOUSE…. I have the text in a text file. To move that text, one HIGHLIGHTs that text .. that is, you 'gather the text into your mouse’ with a ROLLING OVER IT until it’s highlighted, then you do a keyboard command, “CONTROL C” for “COPY” or “CARRY”. Then I GO INTO THE CRAIGS LIST POSTING AREA and find the BODY OF AD and do CONTROL V to place it inside of each LISTING. The text falls right out of the mouse, seemingly, perfectly aligned. Do a hundred ads in ten minutes, control v control v control v. (THE TRICK is having l00 different EMAIL ADDIES as Craigs allows one ad per area per addie!)
*Each dozen times I place an ad, I go into TOOLS at top of browser, and ask it to erase the cookies. That way CRAIG cannot tell how many ads I put up! And as I HAVE DSL, I used to be able to POWER CYCLE. That’s when you lose your DNS number and get a new one! Then CRAIG really can’t tell you’re back. Ask your tekkie at your server how to power recycle you DSL DNS number. It USED to involve sticking point of hairpin or small screwdriver in back of MODEM, in that hole, so it turns off completely. You lose your connection to your server. Then, when you reboot, it wants you to tell it who you are. Your SERVER has you as JOE USER. And your secret password must be filled in and then bingo, you’re assigned a new DNS number. But I don’t do that anymore. Servers change the rules.
*Do as I do, use CRAIGS LIST to carry your message to THE CITY where you live and then to about a hundred and fifty OTHER CRAIGS LIST CITIES! And a hundred other countries.
CRAIGS LIST then sends the AD BACK TO YOUR EMAIL to check it’s really you. I HAVE TO OPEN each browser and go find the AD they sent me. CRAIG requires you PUNCH THE “PUBLISH” BUTTON. It is not posted until YOU are publish it, a whole lotta fun!
IF I DID one ad a day? Nothing would happen. NO clients would be coming to me! TRY TEN ads every day of the week. That works! But then I do ads for my son’s wedding photo biz, HONEY MOON IN HAWAII! And for my other son’s contracting biz, and two house maids living on my street, they need ads, and they report they really work! And I get free tamales! And my pal with the extra room got ads for renters, deluge of calls. And my pal selling the Maryland farm, many responses and the other pal with the home near OREGON’s border, more answers than her realtors ever gave her! And my pal in the ROCKIES stuck on his icy farm?? He needed an old car. There’s nothing that you can’t do with Craigs. That bit about panning for gold on his land got him so many free car offers it was UNBULEEEVEABLE!
NOW, I have done this for years on end! First year, all I did was the LUCK IN LOVE seminars. Got 400 girls who were quickly busy studying the articles I published, one a week, (All at the LUCK IN LOVE website now, 90 of them,) . Then I began to edit out the girls who didn’t answer ever. Who just rec’d info but never answered back. I wrote a form letter, ‘gee I never hear from you, so I get the feeling you’re not really reading the weekly articles on HOW TO MARRY WELL, which I send out,’ so I’m letting you go but keep my email addie, if you ever need me, write.’ And I cut three hundred or so off the list for being non responsive. Then I went on to use CRAIGS LIST to build it up to 400 girls again. The winnowing out of dead minds is constant! I am a voice, a human one, so if a gal doesn’t answer, she’s got to be semi-impaired! Once they answer a few times I get a fix on what their mind is like, their education….sometimes they send a photo and I figure, hey who cares if she’s stupid, what a looker! But For years many girls were getting articles on romance and how to penetrate high society but no answer? Not my kinda gal!
NOW, in the last few weeks, I’ve been doing the INTERNATIONAL ARTISANRY BUSINESS ad. This new list is people who showed interest in doing IMPORT EXPORT with starving third world villages. As Air tickets don’t grow on trees, I feel that doing wholesaling of locally produced folk artisanry in one’s own home town is the way.
FOLK ARTISANRY, BAZAAR FOLKLORICO, VASCO de GAMA SHOPS, PRIMITIVE LTD are biz titles I suggest. But I’m getting off subject.
I really want to say. START YOURSELF A MOONLIGHTING BIZ, Create a website, Free at Earthlink. Start to use CRAIGS LIST. Get rid of your garage storage of dishes, paintings, wallhangings, furniture. SAMPLE: “Want a GENUINE KINKAID PRINT, framed? Originally cost 350$. Sacrifice for $75. “ Put that ad in FURNITURE section . Start to learn to do ads in many cities….THE INTERESTING ad is one for an idea and a website,. not for selling stuff or MONEY. SAMPLE” “Learn how to create LIVING ROOM SEMINARS that make you money. We teach you free. Our hope is to inspire stay at home moms to create an interesting social group in your own LIVING ROOM once a month. Like SCREENWRITERS’ FREE CO-OP, or “INTERNATIONAL CUISINE & RECIPEs for COOKS,” Seed the air with ideas! BUT USE CRAIGS LIST! LEARN TO USE IT so it’s as easy as setting post-its on the wall.
One last thing. Save the text of your ad in your PC ‘tree’ as ruthless craigsurfers are jealous, competitive and for no reason at all except their own profit, ERASE YOUR AD. STASH IT on your hard drive as simple text… for easy finding,
Always store the ad text
in C: directory
Then when jealous folks TAG IT
You can put it back, you see?
Some jerks say 'I want that to myself"
I'll erase the other ad now.
That way others can't stand in my way.
Aggressive whammy kapow!
