XiCast, LLC released ListListener.com (http://ListListener.com), a free email-based service that monitors Craigslist, Kijiji and other community list sites, notifying users by email of new posts that match the city and categories the user is interested in. With advanced subscriptions, posts can be filtered by keywords and price. ListListener.com is the only available online service that monitors Craigslist and similar sites for users without the need for special software or dedicated computers.
The automated online service monitors Craigslist and others for new posts 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. When the service finds a new post that matches what the end user was looking for - perhaps a new job or a deal on a used mobile phone - the service automatically sends an email to the user notifying them of the new post. The email notification contains a hyperlink to the particular post, saving the user time by providing a direct route to the information. Neither Craigslist nor Kijiji offer real-time email subscription services.
As the U.S. economy worsens, the need to save money on purchases and improve one's employment becomes ever more important. ListListener.com allows users to save time pursuing new employment and save money. Craigslist has become the primary location for users to buy and sell goods and services in their local area. It is also the first place that most cost-conscious small businesses turn to post new employment offerings. ListListener.com users frequently save money by monitoring for specific products - such as used mobile phones and laptops - and setting a price point at their current budget. When a product is listed on one of the sites matching these criteria, the end user is almost immediately notified by email, allowing them the strategic advantage of responding to the poster and purchasing the item, usually faster than others who are not using an automated tool.
"I created ListListener in 2004 just after I was laid off from a full-time job", Aidan Owens, founder and CEO of XiCast, LLC describes. "I had just purchased a house and my first son was only a few months old. I immediately turned to Craigslist and realized that if I wasn't the first to reply to a new job posting, I wasn't connecting. Sitting and refreshing the jobs page all day simply wasn't an option. I needed something to watch Craigslist for me and to filter through jobs that were right for me. I developed the early version of what is now ListListener and in a few months I had more work than I knew what to do with. With today's economy being what it is, we realized that we had this amazing tool that could help anyone looking for a competitive edge in saving money or finding a new job. It was time to make ListListener available to the public."
Users and small businesses are welcome to sign up at http://ListListener.com for free "Instant Notification" subscriptions. Advanced keyword and price-filtered subscriptions are also available.
