I would Recommend Lot Vantage: It has 50 different templates and 1 click posting to Craigslist, Backpage, Ebay, etc.
Depending on your area it will have about a 90% stick rate, because the ads are randomized and you are doing the posting yourself. It just makes it extremely simple. I have tried a couple different systems, and I find this to be the easiest.
I can give you a 5 minute demo online and show you how easy it is, if you like. Please let me know Eric Vaughn 940-453-4197
We can Auto-Post your entire inventory for you (150 cars) 7 days a week. Once we have the Data feed you never have to touch the vehicle again. We post while you are asleep, reading your emails in the morning and while you are enjoying a day off. We also have the ability to post your vehicles in more than one Craigslist location at the same time and have had very little problems with ghosting issues.
My boss says Craigslist postings should not be a job a human should be strapped to a desk all day long doing...he said it is a job for a computer....and that is what we have. If you are tired of ghosting issues or paying employees to get the craigslist postings out everyday feel free to email or call me and I can share with you how it works.
I worked at a Honda dealership that used this same 3rd party service to post to multiple locations and it completly changed how many phone calls we received. The dealership is going on almost two years with it and would never drop it. Now I work for the posting service and help other Internet sales departments like the one I was in before coming here.

Chris, I would love to sit down and find out the differences in our two products and then see what the advantages and the disadvantages are.
We might both have very good products that do slightly different things for our dealers.
Feel free to email or call me sometime.
FYI, after DD someone in our office called your company 3 times for info with zero response...you may have the best tool, but you ought to call prospects back.
I just signed up for this group, so I apologize for coming into the conversation so late. However, in my opinion, Cargigi is not the best Craigslist posting company. With all ego aside, my company, AMP Marketing is the best. For one low price, we provide not only CL postings, but up to 200 other sites, reputation management notifications, press releases to 9000 online locations, a CUSTOM website and we register the dealership with over 85 online directories. Not to mention DAILY we evaluate your success and work to ensure dealers with over 100 Used units get between 150 and 200 leads. If you would like to discuss this more or want references, our phones are answered by the second ring - and I give customers my cell phone. Feel free to call me directly at 800-916-1245/Office or 800-916-1238/Cell.

I'd like some clarification on this statement "For one low price, we provide not only CL postings, but up to 200 other sites, reputation management notifications, press releases to 9000 online locations."
I couldn't name more than 10 automotive classified websites that allow free posting of dealer inventory that would be found for a car search on Google Page One or Two. So, could you explain how posting to 200 sites that will not generate any significant views or value helps dealers?
Also, I couldn't name more than 10 free press release websites that show on Google Page One for search terms that consumers would use to research cars. Can you understand why stating that you do press releases to 9,000 sites makes this claim suspect of value to dealers?
I'm not trying to put down the hard work you do but encourage you to consider that these hyper claims, that generate no substantial traffic or creditable links, should be eliminated from your presentation of the value you offer dealers.
I use www.auto-flyers.com
one page lister, bulk upload pictures and a lot of futures for only $50 a month
I've been using Cargigi with fairly good results for over a year. I've decided to look elsewhere to see if there are any new products that can perform better.
So far I've given AutoFusion a shot for a month to see what kind of results I can expect. Apparently, they say that they can post my entire inventory on a daily basis. We'll see... Once I get everything setup, I'll be able to report if this other solution is worth the investment.
I'd like to reactivate this thread. I'm having a devil of a time with Craigslist postings. We have 12 stores so I prefer a managed solution and don't think I want store personnel posting. I am testing Smart Pillars http://www.smartpillars.com/ and a company called Dealer Marketing Solutions http://www.dealermarketingsolutions.com/. Dealer Marketing Solutions claims a "special" relationship with Craigs List. I'm suspicious.
Any advice or suggestions?
I will let you test Cargigi for 21 days absolutely free. My services for that time period free as well. No strings attached. Over 3,000 dealers currently using. We do alot more than simply post on CL. Contact me and I can schedule a brief demo.
