Text Only....Please!! :)

I advertised my rams on Craigslist and have sold 7 locally, so far. The target market is in South Florida and I knew there would be folks with Cuban, Mexican, Middle Eastern or any other variety of accents so the ad says TEXT ONLY; but folks are still calling. I just got off the phone with another guy I just could not understand and the phone connection wasn't the best anyway. He said he would text back later. I guess that's what he said :)

Maybe just publish an e-mail address when you run the ad?

I guess I'll have to.

I use an app on my iPhone that 's also available on Android called Burner. You purchase credits, then buy a phone# using your area code with those credits which you can use for things like Craigslist ads. Works for texts and voice calls. Either that, or don't answer any calls not in your address book and listen to voice mail then text back with the burner phone# to ask them if they need info on lambs.
