If your like me then you like to have an expanded variety of inventory. Or maybe your one of those people that has a lot of small items to sale or you have a few things laying around that you want to get rid of. Example: I am going to use HDMI cables as an example since I have experience with selling those on CL.
Now an Item like HDMI cables, I like to call "Special Attention Items", when it comes to selling these on craigslist. The reason being because you can post these in more than one category to increase your chances of someone finding your post and you selling it. With there are so many different kinds of HDMI cables, there are numerous ways to post them by title and description. HDMI cables have different grades, quality, brands, makers, lengths and an array of other little specifications and tidbits that give you a wide range of posting power.
For starters you can post these in the electronics category and also in the video gaming category. And if you can find a good enough reason you can post these on the photo+video category as well. So that gives you three different ad listings for each kind of HDMI cable you are selling per location. With items like these this strategy has worked out wonderfully for me. It is nice to make a 500$ dollar sale on a TV or two in a matter of days but trust me 5 dollars here and 10 dollars there adds up and does make a difference in your cash flow. So if your trying to get rid of an extra HDMI cable or what ever it is you have laying around that can be a "special attention item" you had laying around then this will definitely up your chances of getting rid of that cable and putting some extra money in your pocket. If you have a bulk inventory of HDMI cables or anything else similar, then this will not only put money in your pocket, but be a consistent and useful way to sale your cables and also to gain a steady come back clientele and make some extra sales threw the all powerful word of mouth.
