    The numbers seem very good. Could you summarize the value of the service they provide ? Like ROI ?

    They quoted $395 a month ... Worth It ?

    Well worth it, we use them.

    If all you get is exposure it was worth it, the amount of people that click through the ad's on craigslist is HUGE.

    Just make sure you are watermarking your images so they consistently see you have a lot of inventory. It will always seem like a lot because they post chucks daily.

    You will get a lot of phone calls though and e-mails too, be careful as craigslist shoppers are their own beast. handle it right and it is a gold mine.

    Worth it? YES! They should give you an 15 days free trial...

    Just like ECURB mentioned, make sure that your people are ready to handle the calls... "handle it right and it is a gold mine"!

    We do get leads and have closed some deals from Cargigi. The one problem I have seen is it can create ads and listing for cars that are not yours. I would encourage everyone to sign up for Google Alerts for your dealer name. Check out this add for a Toyota Sequoia @ a Honda Dealer in TX. Stevinson Lexus of Lakewood is a Lexus Dealer in Denver Colorado. Check out the URL.

    Hello all, my understanding is that Homenet has been bought out, so I believe some sort of arrangement has been worked out between Homenet and Cargigi for Cargigi to help manage those accounts, but I don't know specifics.

    I was just pointing out that some of the dealers in Dans group have been on the cargigi app under another reseller/name. I did not know if he knew they were the same.
