I need a program that is exactly like the one from [url removed, login to view] with a couple of improvements. The interface and operation of the program for posting should be almost identical to that of the EZ Ad Poster software, including the ability to clone ads and just create new headlines, randomize the headlines, include random (invisible) text on each posting, work with proxies etc. Essentially it should be exactly like the EZ Ad Poster, except it will also include an ad Management system.
The management system will allow the user to set up multiple email addresses and will monitor those addresses for emails from Craigslist, and then update the options. For example, after the autoposter has posted to craiglist and the captcha code has been entered, the management program will download the confirmation emails from Craigslist and auto-confirm each one. Then it will store the link to manage that ad so that later the user can go to, say, the “Seattle” ad and edit, delete or whatever. There should be a simple interface with buttons for each so they can go to any ad from within the program OR they can simply edit, delete, repost from WITHIN the program.
There should be an option to check the email accounts on timed intervals that can be defined by the user, so like every 5 minutes the program will check the email account for new Craigslist emails, along with a button that just checks all the accounts at once. If an email from Craigslist is found then the management system will update the current status of that ad. So if an ad is flagged down, the user should be able to see that in the management system and there should be a button that says “Repost Same Ad” and “Delete Ad”. The “Delete Ad” button simply removes that email and record from within the management software, since it has already been deleted on the Craigslist site itself.
There should be an “Auto-Repost” option as well, so if an email is received saying a posting was flagged down then the software will automatically repost the ad and display the captcha input. Once the user inputs the captcha text the ad reposts and confirms on its own.
Make sure you are very familiar with the EZ Ad Poster and know what I’m looking for… there is a video on the site that walks through its capabilities so you should watch that if you haven’t already seen/used the program.
This program should stand on its own once it is installed on a user’s computer. I also want there to be a trial version that only allows one email address to be used and 5 different cloned ads with different phrases per campaign, but has all the other functionality. Then the user should be able to register the program by paying for it. Once registered, this should only be usable on that one computer, so some sort of unique identifier may be necessary.
This should include the setup files and everything else so that once complete, the entire package can be downloaded and installed easily as trial version. Registration will the unlock the full program.
I will only look at responses to this posting that begin with “I looked at the EZ Ad Poster” so that I know you read this whole thing and understand what I’m looking for.
Before I select a programmer I will want a description of exactly what you’re planning as well as a mockup of the way the program will look (posting and management).
