Free Trampoline? Here’s what you do…

Posted on Friday, November 4, 2011 by 1 comment

Dave in Bristol #VT just shared this nugget.  He had a trampoline he was looking to unload.  He listed it on Craigslist Vermont for a month… no calls.  Almost immediately after posting it on the Bristol Front Porch Forum he heard from seven neighbors!

I wish I had 7 to give away after the responses in the first hours after posting.

We hear this kind of thing again and again.  FPF can be a super-effective way to buy, sell, give away, etc.  The big differentiator… your posting reaches people who are not actively looking for what you have/want.  But when they read your FPF posting, some of them think… “Yeah… I’d love a trampoline!”
