Craigslist is often thought of as a place where people go to sell their items. But finding cars and trucks for sale on Craigslist is another great option. We stopped in Indianapolis, as a city with a relatively high population, to check out the cars and trucks for sale on Craigslist.

Craigslist

Craigslist (stylized as craigslist) is an American classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing, for sale, items wanted, services, community service, gigs, résumés, and discussion forums.

Some Craigslist sites cover large regions instead of individual metropolitan areas—for example, the U.S. states of Delaware and Wyoming, the Colorado Western Slope, the California Gold Country, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are among the locations with their own Craigslist sites.

Having observed people helping one another in friendly, social, and trusting communal ways on the Internet via the WELL, MindVox and Usenet, and feeling isolated as a relative newcomer to San Francisco, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark decided to create something similar for local events.

Sell

Though the company is privately held and does not respond to questions about its finances, it is evident that craigslist earns stupendous amounts of cash. One recent report, from a consulting firm that counted the paid ads, estimates that revenue could top $100 million in 2009. Should craigslist ever be sold, the price likely would run into the billions. Newmark, by these lights, is a very rich man. When anybody reminds him of this, the craigslist founder says there is nothing he would care to do with that much money, should it ever come into his hands. He already has a parking space, a hummingbird feeder, a small home with a view, and a shower with strong water pressure. What else is he supposed to want? Frustration over these sorts of replies sometimes becomes comical. In a July 2007 television interview, Charlie Rose spent half the program attempting to get Newmark to admit his good fortune, and failing. "I don't have anywhere near as much control as you think," Newmark said. (Source: www.wired.com)

It is human nature to be excited by the unknown, especially when there is a possibility of danger. With Craigslist, users are unsure of many things. Will the person selling or buying the item be a whack job? Will the item be in the condition the seller described? Is it possible the item was stolen? Lots of scary thoughts come to mind—none of which would actually drive a sale. So why do users take the risk? The answer: effort justification. Deep down, people believe that things worth having will not come easy to them. (Source: www.uxmatters.com)
