Anyone use Craiglist to search for books to add to your inventory? If not, you should! It is a great place to find people wanting to get rid of their old books. You can generally find some great deals. Craigslist separates out listings in almost all of the major cities in the US and also internationally. I would recommend Craigslist to put on your list of usual places to check for sources of books that you want to sell online.
One thing I hate about searching Craigslist is that it’s all manual searching. I had no way to really get notified of things coming up for sale. I had to go to the site and just periodically check what was newly listed. It was a major pain and, at the same time, was sometimes beat to the punch by people that saw a super good deal before I did and had already bought the books. Imagine my frustration if I see a huge lot of books coming from a closed bookstore that was listed three days ago to find that they’ve already been sold! Ah!
Luckily, I was doing some Google searches today because I thought there had to be a better way to do this and stumbled upon a great service called Heycraig. This service is absolutely free and is as simple as you can get which is everything I was looking for. Heycraig is a service that allows you to input a search term, an email address and a city you want to search and it will send you an automatic email notification whenever a listing meets your search term.
It’s a great little app that you can use to find some great deals on books or really whatever you’re looking for and never again will you be beaten to the good deals or have to go to the site over and over again searching.
