all these craigslist photographers are getting out of hand.
how are they in your area?
It's bad here. I stopped caring a long time ago when I realized that the clients I want to work with don't troll craigslist for photographers.
I stopped advertising on CL once I raised my rates beyond what a CL bride is likely to pay.
However, I made a decent amount of $$$$ shooting CL weddings last year.
I don't even try on Cl anymore because of the spam that comes flying into my email. It's atrocious.
It seems theres another one that pops up every time I happen to log on. Some of their advertisements are just ridiculous.

"Quote" instead of
Craigslist signal-to-noise ratio is super low...but it can work ok, esp if you're just starting out and have nowhere else to go, are not expecting much, and charge accordingly...and you can write a decent ad.
Good for your first year. You're on the right track if you outgrow CL by then.
I've never posted on there. I was just browsing the "services" and every other post is "wedding photographer 699" "best wedding photographer in the state" etc
then you look at the provide site and it makes you chuckle
