How to Create Free PVA’s That Work For Craigslist
Ever wish there was a type of free PVA’s that worked for Craigslist? Well now there is.
Pinger is a free text and talk phone app that will allow you to create free phone numbers. So now with this app you can create free PVA’s that will work with Craigslist.
Some of you may be thinking I am using Craigslist, but what is a PVA?
What is a PVA?
PVA is short for “phone verified account.” You may have experienced this with your email provided. It is another way to cut back on spam. You must verify your account with a phone number.
Once you create an account with Craigslist and post one ad, a box will come up directing you to put in your phone number to verify your account. You only have to do this once. But if you abuse your account by like over-posting or spamming Craigslist may ask you to do it again.
How to Setup Pinger to Work With PVA’s?
It is extremely easy to setup. Go to your app store and download Pinger. Once it installs, Pinger will ask you to setup an account. Basic information such as, username, password, name, email. After you fill in the required information Pinger brings you to the last section where you pick a free phone number. Pinger will automatically choose the area code associated with your cell phone. You can pick the default number or at the bottom Pinger gives you an option to change the area code. When I am verifying an account with Craigslist I always pick the area code associated with the city I am posting in. Some people will argue and say it doesn’t matter. That is up to you to decide. Once your verify your account with Pinger, you can logout and create a new free number. Technically you can do this over and over again.
As of the date I am writing this blog, Pinger works perfect. Depending on when you see this blog I can’t guarantee this will work forever. When ever you are using PVA’s to verify Craigslist always use the phone call section, most of the time text does not work.
Lastly, do not take advantage of Craigslist. I know some people are going to see this as the “Holy Grail” and create a million free PVA’s. I do not recommend that! Don’t ruin it for everyone. Use what you need. Sometimes us marketers need a quick PVA. This Pinger App comes in handy. If this Pinger app is going to help your marketing, please leave a comment and share.
Much Success and Gratitude!
