STARTING A COTTAGE INDUSTRY,
using CRAIGSLIST as a promo
and getting a HUGE AUDIENCE.
by anita sands hernandez
I used to go to the studio and make money. Now, I STAY HOME & MAKE MONEY! A COTTAGE INDUSTRY allows you to have all the cats and babies you want, which allows you to write communist pamphlets, nah.. socialist ones, also write movies,screenplays, poems or articles most of the day and then spend an hour doing something that pays rent.
I raised four babies alone, no alimony, foreign ex hubby, created a cottage industry, two little businesses actually. An online HOROSCOPE/ PALM READING/ TAROT reading business CYBER GYPSY ANITA and the free, HOW TO BE LUCKY IN LOVE” SEMINARS.That one is a freebinar, a webinar, seminar, 120 classrooms, TOTALLY FREE. It’s the RULES of successful courtship -- the RUTHLESS RULES of romance, Also a very large section on HOW TO MARRY A BILLIONAIRE. My clients for the former business are beautiful rich women all over the USA and my students at the latter are beautiful POOR women all over the USA.
The reason that I STAY HOME AND DO all THIS originally used to be that I had four little babies, Paloma, Miguel, Demian and Luis, whose Poppa was in another country without a dictionary that had the word “ALIMONY” in it. They’re raised now, so the new reason is that I don't drive a car!. Did for the last fifty years, but now the city of L.A. wants $1000 dollars on car insurance, and they are so bothersome as to demand 1000$ for that driving infraction ticket (caught with no 2004 license tags), penalties for not showing could double that amount. I never went to court on it as I had no way to get to court nor the money for the ticket! (REWRITE. It's 2019 and I haven't driven in 9 YRS. It's GREAT. Save all kinds of Money. Friends drive me to market once a week. IT WORKS. Never paid state a dime. Instead write articles about how badly poor eighty year olds are treated!.
At the time, STATE DEMANDED a smogging exhaust system rebuilt on the car which is so old it won't pass smog test! Well, it was at that time a 21 year old car! IF YOU EXHALED you’d flunk! I have to rebuild motor, for a third thousand dollar bill, no that would be a FOURTH THOUSAND dollar fee. SO basically, I gotta stay home and make money off my desk, somehow. Just pay the rent. A THOUSAND DOLLAR BILL (whoops, she raised it to 1400$.) EVERY 30 DAYS on that one! My social security pension is 350$ as I never worked in my life, raised 4 kids. OH TV jobs. Maverick Bonanza don't count that.
There are people who have jobs that pay more than that an HOUR. Well, I don't! I DO NOT and WILL NOT work for another person or a corporation. Tried it once, at a PSYCHIC HOTLINE. A hundred phones in a room the size of a football field. MANAGERS listening over your shoulder. NOT FOR ME!
INSTEAD, I do forty ads a day at Craigslist.org. YES! You read that right! Forty ads a day from l’il ole me! Now if you know this list, you know that they only allow ONE POSTING per category. Total two listings! ITS robot would complain if I DID TWO at the same section. (SECTION can be JOBS SOUGHT, or JOBS OFFERED, or AUDITIONS/ ENTERTAINMENT BIZ JOBS. Or ARTISTS COMMUNITY POSTINGS. OR LESSONS OFFERED. OR THERAPY OFFERED. (I post at all of them as I OFFER ALL OF THAT!)
Well CRAIG ALLOWS only ONE POSTING in one section, but you can do a second in another section and get by but THAT is their limit. SO to get past the robot, I use yahoo and netscape.. meaning I created...21 extra email addies. I am sillystargal @ ONE box -- I am staranitala@ another (THE LA at the end means city of L.A.) but I STILL HAVE 20 others! YEP!
HOW TO MAKE ADS
FIRST create some stunning text. Mine are long, maybe 3 paragraphs or up to six paragraphs but in GIST they are this:
· * * WORLD’s BEST ASTROLOGER. COURTNEY LOVE PLUGS Anita Sands in her album jacket! 30$ an hour, 15$ an half hour, Phone me up now. 818-774-1939
Or “GALS? Had your heart broken one time too many? Go to the luck in love website right now and learn how to HAVE POWER OVER MEN? GO TO HTTP://WWW/LUCKINLOVE.COM and take the FREE SEMINAR WHICH IS the RUTHLESS RULES OF ROMANCE, or HOW TO GET MARRIED, not bumped, jumped and abandoned. FREE!
NOW I have the text in an email of mine, or in a text file, to move it, you HIGHLIGHT that text .. you 'gather the text into your mouse with a ROLLING OVER IT until it’s highlighted, then you do a keyboard command, “CONTROL C” for “COPY” or “CARRY”. Then I GO INTO THE CRAIGS LIST POSTING AREA and find the BODY OF AD and do CONTROL V to place it inside of each LISTING. I can do ten listings in ten minutes! WHY is cuz the mouse carries the text. EVERY time you open a new ad, that text goes SMACK into the empty space! YOU KNEW that, didn’t you?
And you know how to use MICROSOFT's TEXT EDITOR? Just touch WINDOWS BUTTON and R key. fill in NOTEPAD
SO I could have this mini screen to create and write squibs and rewrite text & really use CRAIGS LIST to carry my message to THE CITY OF L.A. and then to about fifty OTHER CRAIGS LIST CITIES!
CRAIGS LIST then sends the AD BACK TO YOUR EMAIL to check it’s really you. I HAVE TO OPEN each browser and go find the AD they sent me. CRAIG requires you PUNCH THE “PUBLISH” BUTTON. It is not posted until YOU are publish it, a whole lotta fun!
IF I DID one ad a day? OF COURSE, nothing would happen. NO clients would be coming to me! TRY FIFTY CITIES. TRY FIFTY ADS! Well, REQUIRES TWENTY FIVE different EMAIL ADDIES! Start creating those email addies! YOU can also use YOUR pals’ emails. FOUR close pals (one a kid of mine) will let me use their addie. (I ANONYMIZE when I use them so clients won’t email my daughter in New York and demand a horoscope!” ALL my surrogates get to do is PUNCH PUBLISH, --PUNCH AND PUBLISH! (this was 1995, don't have to do that now)
A WAY TO USE PALS: You got two PC's there? Everyone does. DOES YOUR SERVER allow you to have more than one PC ONLINE at the same time? MINE does not. Earthlink my server charges me extra if I do it. (again, 1995)
I have three very old Windows 98 DELL PC’s here, (Finally clients gave me NEW WIN 10 PCS) all ready to go online and two diff Phone lines! ONe to talk over, the other for the DSL. I do a WONDERFUL HTM PROGRAM (WEBMONKEY) Free. A few BROWSER DOWNLOADS, I always get MOZILLA FIREFOX but GOOGLE CHROME is way better. So I do both and shift between browsers for research while LOOKING AT SEA MONKEY where article is taking place. I use the WIN 10 TXT EDITOR but one can DOWNLOAD many fine text editors. I always get ZTREE as a FILE MANAGER. I cover it all on my SEMINAR: WEB TECH FOR DUMMIES. YOU MAY USE WINDOWS EXPLORER NOW, FOR FIFTEEN YEARS I USED NETSCAPE browser, a 4.7 version. Downloading takes a minute. CORE is my FTP hardware, only free one I found. ALL SOFTWARE FREE or I don't use it.
THEN rest of day, ADS get loaded (SEE "HOW TO MERCHANDISE YOUR BIZ" ) and that part you will do every day. PLUS writing articles with SEAMONKEY. I used NETSCAPE VERS 4.7 as a browser, have for ten years. Switched recently to CHROME AND MOZILLA.
DOWNLOADING a browser was free online. MOZILLA and NETSCAPE 7.2 browsers both go to NETSCAPE addies only. It was tied to it, I mean. WHY TWO? I wanted to see which was faster. They are the same but NONE faster than the NETSCAPE vers. 4.7 from the 90’s also downloadable online. IF YOU WANT BROWSERS, google on words I gave you, MOZILLA FIREFOX, free download.
IN THE OLD DAYS, when CRAIGS LIST only let you do one or two ads, I had twenty addies like sandscalif @ XYZ HOST DOT COM which those two browsers go to. NETSCAPE 4.7 browser an oldie but a goodie, also suposedly inpenetrable to CIA/ NSA. I use this browser for only one addie, astrology @ earthlink.net an addie that I've had 20 yrs now! MY MAIN ONE, my oldest one. ALL MY PALS come to that browser I mean to that email addie. Each six months I’d get up to 4000 emails in it, I save the INBOX, start a new one. LOTS of old inboxes in cache, full of letters. Courtney LOVE is going to have to buy that from me. ALL her ramblings! 7 YEARS of them. But she's a good egg. I wouldn't sell them.
BUT strangers come to my 'new' addies. at netscape and YAHOO. I have THREE BROWSERS NOW, 22 email addresses and do 40 ads on a good day, 22 on a bad one.
Cm'on give technology a chance! I used to TRY to USE denver.backpage.com for ads but it jams every time. No matter how I write the ad, not one will ever get on. It's a too! Like craigs list but .000005% the size. I'm betting in last ten years it closed down. Occas. I GOOGLE SEARCH TERM "like Craigslist" + new and see if anything new comes up. But it hasn't.
WITCHY here opened 22 different email addresses NETSCAPE and YAHOO so I definitely do 22 ads on each at craigs daily and only occas need to do an extra in a pal's name. FOUR PALS will 'click on and publish' my ad soif I go over the basic 22 ...I get 26 that day by using them. My lovely photog daughter, PALOMA, MARK my other stargazer best pal, Babs my ARIES fiery pal (ETHYL TO MY LUCY) who drove me across border to the prison in deep MEXICO last year when I needed to get my KID OUT! 200 miles to ENSENADA! She has the brass to do that, I’d even trust her with EDITING the ads! I CAREFULLY make my ADS (using the pals' email addie,) anonymous an option that CRAIGS gives you...so NO email addie appears on them at all just the one I WRITE into the text and I must write it as astrology at earthlink dot net as CRAIGS doesn't allow websites or emails in ads. (We are not allowed to do http: or @AOL.COM...the machine catches it and says "YOU ARE TRYING TO PUT AN EMAIL IN HERE!" so i write astrology at earthlink net.
EVERY DAY five girls join me at the luck in love dot com site finding my craigs list ads so intoxicatingly savory and full of promise. They write me enthusiastically and say they LOVEit that it’s like seeing THEIR SKULL in writing and they INSTANTLY get placed on my browser’s email list. INSTANTLY. I never wait! I just load them on that second so as not to misplace one! AND I also at that moment put them on THE LUCK IN LOVE LIST. LIST is diff from email. LIST is many emails together. If you want a lesson in how to create these, come over!
Today my LUCK IN LOVE LIST will hit l00 girls prob by noon...gals who have signed up on the list ONLY BY ANSWERING my AD! THEY daily receive a few files on HOW TO NAIL A HUSBAND. SEE I don't just offer astrology services, I OFFER a website with articles they can read that will teach them. ONGOING articles. I TARGET specific ladies with specific gifts, interests! ONE GAL wants to train other women. She’s a psychologist, she is starting the SUCCESS IN LOVE SEMINARS in FRISCO after reading my work. She will be the first star in this field and no doubt make it into PEOPLE MAGAZINE!
NOW, come on over to the house any day, I can show you how to do all the above. I can also help you create a website of your own with themes like PETS, HOLISM, DIET, HOLISTIC CANDY MAKING, CATERING, BAKING DESSERTS, JAM making, any industry you want to do out of your home, BEAD STRINGING, holistic MASSAGE etc,) EXORCISMS< PAST LIFE REINCARNATION READINGS, I can send you those files if it wouldn't bore you ON HOW TO DO A COTTAGE INDUSTRY and wild ideas which have worked for other people.
Or, I can send you my LUCK IN LOVE files. YOU CAN BECOME A TRAINER. YOU HAVE a car, you can make a million with church basement groups. FILES are all yours, free! I MAKE all my writings available for you to store to cache and distribute. And boy, ladies bite on LOVE WRITING like TROUT bite on flies! WHY is that it’s the hottest spending market segment, 18-40 year olds….singles….SO if you’re selling home baked bread and you also do THE YOU ARE MY BREAD AND BUTTER VALENTINE WEBSITE on the LUCK IN LOVE website, you get twice the clients for other things you sell. YOU ALWAYS double sell a website! WOMEN come for your LOVE ARTICLES and end up ordering home baked bread. Just don’t open a bakery with a MORTUARY! PLUMBING with EAR CLEANING!
SO it all beings with CRAIGS AD POSTING which takes a few hrs. I DO 22 ads daily whichis about half the cities they offer. There are like 40 cities on craigs......new ones coming daily, AUCKLAND in NZ just came!!!! SYDNEY, MELBOURNE TOO! ....but I'd have to post ad in another category. SO I look around see GIGS, CREATIVE GIGS, pick that, even though it's not real clear what or who that might be. OR WHAT. LIKE...we're employing imaginative folks who currently have no job at all and will do anything nutsy?
NOT as good as TALENT/ AUDITIONS which promises babes, demented babes but babes nonetheless. AND MY LUCK IN LOVE training material is for babes! MY WEBSITE http://www.luckinlove.com is women only! (TODAY. But a pal said, MEN HAVE THE MONEY, make an ad that will appeal to men ON ONE PAGE over at your website. ADVERTISE THAT page at craigs. DATING COUNSELING, 25$ the hour. OR INTRODUCTIONS.. so that men can find babes, charge him l00$ for each introduction.) MONEY appeals but the idea of just handing over the hundred babes in a hundred cities to unknown guys does NOT appeal. Very ambivalent about that! TOO DANGEROUS FOR THE GIRL!
SO instead I just train the babes to find POWER GUYS in POWER SITES. IF MY THESIS is correct, beautiful girls can learn about POSH areas of the city, improve their manners with VANDERBILT books, learn how to have that FINISHING SCHOOL DEMEANOR that ritzy guys have seen all their lives and are used to……the girls can hang at ritzier places and attract a ritzier boyfriend than they meet in their barrios and barrio cafes. I TELL THEM, you must quit going to local cafes as MEN YOU MEET distract you from the real PREY! THE BILLIONAIRE.
SO ANYWAY a training site of some kind, the ad placement at lists and Craig’s is a formal list but don't discount many SPECIAL INTEREST lists out there that are about HOBBIES and don’t neglect political activists and their blogs and/or lists. So, more or less, THAT is what the COTTAGE INDUSTRY ENTREPRENEUR will start with.
PROBLEMS THAT YOU MAY ENCOUNTER
Occasionally, a Craig list reader looks at the BABE/AUDITION ad which reads "ARE YOU BEAUTIFUL? CHARMING? WITTY? HUGE MONEY AVAILABLE!" and clicks on ad and then sees that this is no audition! IT’s “HEY SWEETHEART, glad you stepped in. Guess what? THE BEST MONEY IS IN MARRIAGE! QUIT SHOW BIZ and modeling it makes you look cheap! " THEY angrily FLAG me & that ad comes down instantly.
I get sent a “YOU WERE FLAGGED” announcement to my email so I instantly go back and replace that ad figuring that the flagger won't come back real soon. I change the ad's appearance. "WANT THE WORLD's BEST, MOST HIGHEST PAYING JOB ? IF GORGEOUS U CAN GET IT"
WHEN YOU CANNOT DRIVE in a city and network, ONLINE networking becomes real important. IN THE OLD days, shopping at posh Beverly Hills NATURAL FOODS market, I'd meet one person, one potential star client, in the PRODUCE department, one in the CHEESE area and a third at the cash register.3 x a day, three shopping days a week. THOSE NINE PEOPLE would provide at least one, real COME IN VISIT/ASTROLOGY client sooner or later. SEE CELERY 101 FILE. (How to talk up a new client in the produce dept.)
Each happy client brings a friend back. I can link w. five a day doing this Craigs list thing, same ratio of like one in ten becomes a client, and each client bringsa friend...And when they demand I do that horoscope, I say fine, I'm doing the math right now, you send the fee over PAYPAL right now. Bingo, the money's there in ten seconds!
So what have we learned? YOU CAN stay at home with no license tags on your beat up car and make a half-assed living with the internet! OR you can take the bus to a phone room and make 200$ a week. 800$ a month minus bus fare, minus child care, minus EVERYTHING. So don't do it. COTTAGE INDUSTRY EVERY TIME!
IT takes time. I look around the office at scripts I wrote which languish not getting submitted wistfully, think of the landlord and GO BACK TO PLACING ADS.
OKAY this A.M., a gal paypal-ed some money to me for a chart so gotta start working on Sabrina, a Latina born in a Texas bordertown. Sigh. Can she live up to her name, i.e. the famed SABRINA who penetrated NYC society when AUDREY HEPBURN played her....and can Sabrina penetrate Houston society? I hope so. To nab those billionaires takes SAUCE! PURITY too, and a big heart. Discipline and ambition. REWRITE 2019. None of which Sabrina turned out to have. Total stoner. Moved to SEATTLE to be with her kind.
