Imagine a site where you could browse for gently used and new furniture, appliances, electronics, and collectibles. Imagine a site where you could explore apartments, vacation homes, rentals, and office space. Imagine a site where you search for a job, a gig, a service, or even a date is possible. Imagine a site where all of this is possible.
Good thing you don’t have to imagine, because the site is Craiglist.
Started in 1995 as an email distribution in San Francisco by (you guessed it) Craig Newmark, this online classified advertisement site has over 20 billion views per month.
It has revolutionized the way advertisements work for two main reasons: it’s free, and it’s user friendly.
