This is pretty brilliant:
It all started out about 3 months ago when I was using IFTTT to subscribe to Craigslist gigs for some potential consulting gigs. I landed 2 contracts off the service and thought to myself there must be others that aren’t as web 2.0 savvy that would love a service like this.
IFTTT is a great tool to get Craigslist alerts BUT it’s too difficult to setup and to maintain.
With the help of some talented peeps from Odesk I was able to go from concept to working demo in about 2.5 weeks. Cl Alerts was built on top of Mailgun, Launchbit and MagpieRSS.
I admire the resourcefulness!
Thanks Adam.. your bookmarklet was kind of inspiration.
Best part it I am making decent ad revenue so far :)
