Craigslist Change Hurts Small Business & Marketers
For years, Craigslist advertising has served as a fantastically free site for Internet Marketers who post advertisements on behalf of small business clients that we represent. Too good to be true, right? Good things rarely last.
Recently, Craigslist implemented universal changes which completely remove the ability to post professional-looking html-generated image ads that live link to a website. So, gone is a way to post beautifully designed flyer templates, rich in graphic content with hyperlinks. They no longer work on Craigslist!
Surprise. Gotcha! Empty Craigslist Ad
Those of us who frequently post on Craigslist were NEVER notified of the policy change via an email or mass media campaign. Nope. Nada. Not.
Instead, we found out by surprise. The roll out appeared gradual nationwide. But here in Omaha, Marketers logging into their accounts to renew previously posted image ads uploaded last year were met with empty content in 2014, or an error “0” when trying to re-publish the HTML-coded ad. Yes, the headers were there, but the image content was gone. What the heck!?
“I was confused at first. Some of my client’s professionally designed graphic ads were empty. I thought it was an error. Was it frustrating? Yes! A lot of work down the drain. It was not until I Googled “Craigslist HTML Changes” that I became aware of Craigslist’s new policy which bars HTML code ads.
Interestingly, the only articles about Craigslist’s new policy focused on the impact to realtors. The bigger news story uncovered by us is how the Craigslist’s changes hurt small business on limited budgets, including the advertisers and internet marketers who represent them:
“Cheap ads HAD generated great leads and the hyperlinks WERE great for SEO. Now, the newly mandated plain text ads look boring and amateurish and there’s zero SEO advantage to small business who must compete with the big budget corporations for a piece of the pie,” notes Susan Stern, an internet marketing Omaha consultant.
Why Did Craigslist Change Ad Policy?
It can be assumed that Craigslist wants to even the playing field. Many people don’t have the economic resources or knowledge to create custom HTML code to post professionally looking Craigslist ads. Internet marketers who write custom code have an advantage over small sellers. So what, we say!
By removing the image tags from posts, Craigslist appears to be standardizing ads so no company has an upper hand over another. “This is a ridiculous policy change especially for small business on a limited budget. Plus, all the ads now look the same. There is little way to stand out from the rest. In actuality, Craigslist is hurting small business from Maine to California,” notes Stern. Do you like the change? Take Poll NOW!
What Can You Post On Craigslist NOW?
Instead of being able to create eye-popping HTML-generated ads, internet marketers are now FORCED to write plain text advertising just like the layman would. Sure, you can still upload photos and images, but you can NOT link them to any live website. You have to type in plain text, period. If you want to display a URL, it does NOT work. Craig’s list removed outbound links, completely.
Officially, Craigslist’s new policy:
Please note IMG, FONT, TABLE, DIV, and SPAN tags are no longer supported… Please use CL image upload for images.
Craigslist HTML Policy Bad for SEO
The no-custom-HTML-code-policy means you may no longer use clickable Image Ads to drive traffic to your website, reducing the options for external link building and SEO (Search Engine Optimization: the process of building and maintaining a website’s Google rank).
Recover From Craigslist Ad Removals
“Change is never easy. But after the initial shock, internet marketers must accept the Craigslist changes. Sure there is a mourning period for those who have successfully used Craigslist to generate new business for years. Someone could start a change.org petition, but let’s be real. Generally, internet signature gathering does NOT trigger change. Still, if enough people complain by blogging online, there is a slight chance Craigslist may listen.”
The best advice now is for internet marketers to stop focusing on what’s lost, and start thinking positive. Chin up. Search for new opportunities to generate new business. We should let the Craigslist policy change serve as a warning. Look at the big picture. Google could change its algorithms at any time. Where would your business be then?
“Marketers should encourage their small and medium-size businesses to think outside the box and use a marketing mix. It’s smart to diversify resources to find different ways to generate new business leads online as well as the old-fashioned way, like fostering relationships in person,” emphasizes Susan Stern, an Internet Marketing Omaha company owner.
Still, we here at Stern PR Marketing™ are not happy with Craigslist killing off the ability to post enhanced ads. It’s bad for small business on a budget. We hope they re-think their policy.

(Omaha, NE) — An integral part of building your Omaha company brand is promoting a consistent & polished image on & offline. Everything your business puts out there reflects your company image, so hiring a competent and creative Omaha marketing consultant, well-versed in all media/print aspects is a must-have for a successful marketing strategy:
Website Design & Navigation
Internet & Broadcast TV Commercial
Print & media Advertisements
Notes Susan Stern, “every aspect of your marketing plan should have a common and consistent theme across-the-board: overall color, design and appearance of all things communication that your company promotes. This is not a do-it-yourself project.Only a competent Omaha marketing consultant has the tools and industry knowledge to streamline a company image at a professional level.
“I am one of the only Omaha marketing consultants in town that handles all things communication on & offline.Most Omaha advertising and marketing firms have up to 5 (five) people managing your company image. That means, behind-the-scene, one person handles the copywriting, another does the graphic design, and most likely other tasks such as Omaha website design & development are outsourced with high costs passed onto you. With so many people working on your image branding, that can present a problem in terms of image consistency, too. “With Stern PR Omaha, you have solely 2 (two) professionals managing your marketing! Costs are very reasonable. Your image remains consistent. Reaching Susan Stern to communicate is easy, too. Pick up the phone, send an email or text.
Yes, image is almost everything to a business, but not the end-all-be-all. Yes, a company’s image can help customers remember your business, but the quality of the image is what makes a lasting impression. In other words, a fantastic logo on a business card will have little influence if the card paper itself looks cheap. The quality of your business card image portrays to customers on a conscious & subconscious level. Therefore, a low quality image on your business card represents a poor quality company. Likewise, a polished biz card which contains a great looking logo and easy-to-read font and all contact information positioned on superior paper stock gives an outstanding impression of your business.
Equally as important as image is the substance of the service/product your company provides. Notes Susan, “give your customers something that exceeds their expectations, i.e., superior service compared to others, out-of-the-box production/service – at a reasonable price.”
A successful brand identity is based on SO MUCH MORE than just a talented designer’s or copywriter’s interpretation of your company. Branding strategy must capture the essence of the company’s vision and summarize the benefits that your target demographic will experience when doing business with you. “Here at Stern PR Omaha, not only will my clients receive meticulous branding of your company image on & offline, but the image will be consistent, streamlined and professional, backed by superior customer service, affordable rates and an advocate who works on your behalf within your budget,” emphasizes Susan Stern.
