Finding and using tools in your business, is a great way to streamline things. There are hundreds of uses for “If This Then That”, but today I wanted to give you a quick lesson on using “If This Then That” for scraping Craig's list.
What do I mean by that?
One way to find discounted properties is by looking for them on Craig's List. However, that takes a lot of time out of your day. Before you know it, you have spent an hour or two cruising around the site. With “If This Then That” (AKA IFTTT), you set up what you want to search for and let the app do it for you.
What Should I Set Up?
If you looking for discounted properties, you want to look for search terms like these:
- Needs work
- Must Sell
- Needs TLC
- Your city and state
You want to compile a list of terms that would indicate you have a motivated seller. Then you will set those up in IFTTT so it looks for properties containing those terms for you. It's kind of like having a free assistant.
