Craigslist Founder Craig Newmark on Cover Story
Perhaps the most disruptive online entrepreneur of all time, Craig Newmark joins Brandy Shapiro-Babin and Jiyan Wei on WebmasterRadio.fm for Cover Story, Wednesday October 22 at 2PM EST.
Newmark is the founder of the wildly successful Craigslist, an online advertising platform which has redefined classified advertising in the Internet age.
Operating out of a three story house in the Sunset District of San Francisco, Craigslist.org is thought to have approximately 30-million unique users and serves over nine billion page-views per month. With more than 30-million new ads placed on one of dozens of city-specific “lists” each month, Craigslist.org is by far the largest classified advertising platform in the world.
While the privately held company has a practice of keeping financial information private, Valleywag estimated 2007 revenues exceeding $150 million. The company achieves most of its revenues from paid job-ads and broker-represented apartment listings.
