CIT-First (See It First) is a new free video classifieds website where users create videos of the products or services they hope to sell and users can watch them to decide if they want to follow up.
I came across this site shortly after thinking about how Craigslist should do something like this. I might be selling my Mustang soon and I was thinking how much more info I’d be able to provide if I could post a video instead of only 4 photos.
CIT First is a great idea that will probably be adopted in many other classified websites in the future, but to be honest I don’t see this working for them, at least not how the site is set up now. I already see lots of spammy videos uploaded and showing on the home page and they don’t even have city/local category pages. I don’t have time to search through all of these listings trying to figure out if someone is selling something near me. With a little time, I’m sure this site can do great things.
For now, the best way to use this is to upload your video to CIT First and then post the link to your Craigslist or Ebay Classified postings. Or you can alternatively use YouTube.
