Let's face it, craigslist just isn't good at some things. While it is exceptional at others. But, even what it is good at can become a hinderence. Like for sale ads. In some cities, the items for sale sections of craigslist are so overpopulated that people get overwhelmed and give up.
By creating a second site where people can come and post ads, interact and just do that craigslist style thing in a more graphically laid out environment, it enhances the experience. If we went into this thinking we were going to knock craigslist off the map, we would have been nuts. We started sellfreeusa.com to give those who seek that craigslist style of doing business without some of the craigslist style foibles that come with it.
Who knows, time will tell us if we were right, but in the meantime... we thank Craig Newmark for giving us what he did.
