The strangest thing happened to me on Craigslist...

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by oniman7, Jan 9, 2013.

  1. ... 3 legitimate responses the first day and no spam! Only one of them ended up being what I was looking for, but I've never had 3 responses from a 45 day run, let alone the day after I post it (I posted it at something like 3 AM). Here is the ad if you're curious: http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/muc/3530411216.html

    Maybe I said something that people liked. Like the part about the money :p

    Well, it IS a pretty good ad... Hits all the right spots, at least. If I were someone to put together a band you'd be smearing honey in my ears lol.
  3. Awesome! Hope one of the bands works out for you.

    Professional-sounding ad, and greetings from another local TB'er...

    Well done

    Down to earth

  6. I want looking for compliments on the ad, but thanks! I have lost a couple due to age, but I'm fortunate to have more interest
  7. Looks good to me. Good luck with the band man.
  8. Hey Raz, where are you located? If you don't mind me asking

    I put an ad in Craigslist a few years ago and received a number of offers. My ad was somewhat similar to yours. I tried to provide reasonable expectations as to my playing abilities, genre of music acceptable to me and I used fairly decent grammar including full sentences. I was surprised that two replies included guys who wanted me just because of my appropriately written ad.

    Your ad is well thought out, but I think it was the hat that got you the calls. :D

    I kid. I kid. I always wear a hat at a gig.

    Great job!

    In that case the thread will have to be moved to BM.
