Craigslist is not free anymore – you have to pay to post gigs and resumes too


Update June 2018: Craigslist doubles its fees, increasing the $5 fee to post in the USA to $10 in popular cities like New York and San Francisco.

Did you post your Craigslist gig or resume before their March 15 updates?  If so, you might not have noticed their fee changes yet.  Craigslist is no longer known as the nice free website you can post free classifieds or resumes/services offered on, while wondering how they make their money since there are no ads (until they made the change to charge for the jobs categories).  Nope, now they are charging the little guys too, not just the companies with open full-time/part-time positions to post.  Each post in the gigs or resume/services offered sections in the US and selected CA areas will be charged too.  Sucks, but there can be a silver lining for some.

So, each poster on craigslist in the US has paid a fee.  We know from dating sites that this does not mean less spam or fake posts, or even scams.  But, so far it is looking to mean less posts on Craigslist.  Comparing the number of posts from just 1 day of their rule change, there are lots more posts on March 14 than March 15.  So if you’re looking for a job, it can mean less posts to read through.

And if you are into making websites, it could mean an opening for you to make the next big Craigslist classifieds directory and/or listings directory that is free, and even stays free perhaps.

You can opt to make your website 100% free and earn profits through advertising.  A good example of this is the largest totally free dating site/app Friends Match Me – built on UltimateWB!

You can opt to make posting on your website free, and charge for special add-ons, like highlighting the ad, featuring the ad, or allowing photos/videos to be added for a small fee.  Good examples of websites that utilize this business model are:

Gym Chat Classifieds: www.gymchat.com/classifieds

Gym Chat Listings Directory: www.gymchat.com/listings

Get Print Quotes: www.getprintquotes.com

Carelister classifieds & directory for care jobs: www.carelister.com

Yes, all these websites are built on UltimateWB!

It’s a good time to get started on creating your own free classifieds or directory website!  And UltimateWB makes it super easy with our built-in classifieds app and built-in listings directory app.  No experience necessary.
