Craigslist.org Information

Craigslist Info

Despite its non-monetary and virtually good-willed purposes, Craigs list has been bombarded of a controversy that usually deals with unfair trade. Companies that focus on posting ads are threatened of the free service that Craiglist provides, due to the fact that people would choose a free service provider over them. But to craigslist’s defense, they do not charge for any of their service because of the non-monetary belief that their company has established, and solely charge paid job ads on cities such San Francisco Bay Area ($75 per ad); New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Chicago (all aforementioned cities are charged $25 per ad). Despite the miniscule amount of workers needed to operate this functional website, around 23 employees only, Craiglist has placed 34th among the most famous websites in the World Wide Web, and 9th place as the most popular in the United States. But not all controversies were focused on company against another company. There were also moral issues thrown against Craiglist, such as the blatant postings of adult ads on the site. Craiglist fixed this by putting up disclaimers against boards, such as “women seeking women”, “casual encounters” (the most controversial so far) and “erotic services”, along with the user power to flag any content that they come upon which they feel is overboard, so that moderators can easily identify posts that are offensive.

ShoeMoney on Getting Rich Quick Overnight

ShoeMoneyShoeMoney recently posted a short video about the most popular question people ask him about β€œCan you really get rich quick overnight?!?!β€œ

Here’s the video

Here’s what he had to say in his video:


Hey good morning.

So.. getting rich over night. I get several emails all the time, how do you make money online, how do you make money with Adsense, how do you do this, I want to make money tomorrow, I don’t wanna work, I just wanna make money.

It’s so cool now, everybody wants to do it.

It IS cool, at the end of the day, you cant make money overnight.

The thing is.. in this industry, it comes and goes so fast.

So, the deal is a lot like, I don’t know if any of you guys have read the book ‘Lucky or Smart‘.. I have it, I actually listen to it on audio, but you should because it actually says that the difference between, well, the deal with you know people always say are you lucky or are you smart, because you make money online in anything.

It’s basically being smart enough to know when you’re lucky.

Because basically if you keep working at something for long enough, you WILL win. I mean you, your ship will come in. It’s just do you have the fortitude to work hard enough at that thing for a long enough period till someone notices you. I mean it’s a series of cycles and how things repeat, I mean eventually, your thing will come in again.

You see it now, like with, I mean a couple of years ago, if somebody was sitting on a transformers website, and was making no money, right now it’s probably freaking, RAINING at him! Who is that person now? Whose killing it right now have the vision to take that money and parlay it into something bigger, because that’s what it takes.

So, you can’t make money overnight, you can’t make money quick. But you know will you have what it takes to parlay that into something bigger.

Because that is what will lead to success in future.

So I don’t know where this came from this morning, I’m just tired of people emailing me, saying I want to make money overnight, what do you think about this ebook, about getting rich overnight?

Good Luck with that.
