A Good Find Launches in Denver: How to Buy and Sell Your Items
posted by: Amber Johnson
So many of us have been there: You are searching for items on clunky Craiglist and if your item is miraculously available you meet with the seller, dole out cash (always a source of anxiety for me) and go on your merry way.
In a perfect world, it would be a seamless process but unfortunately, there are more than a few hiccups along the way. Enter: A Good Find (AGF) that is launching in the Denver market!
This modernized listing site allows users to buy and sell their stuff, used goods like baby items, furniture etc. to their local market. It’s a way for people near each other to buy and sell locally. OK cool, but why is that such A Good Find for Mile High Mamas? (Sad disclaimer: that’s their brilliant pun not mine). It’s an online local marketplace built for 2017, with safety and security baked in from the beginning: cashless payments (no more stacks of cash when meeting a stranger), internal messaging, and a sleek user interface. That’s right, no more giving out your personal email and phone number!
Free Promotion Code
So you are probably thinking “that’s great, but how much does it cost?” It’s free! There are three kinds of accounts: Free (5 listings per month), Professional (25 listings per month) or Marketplace (unlimited item listings). However, AGF has given me an exclusive promo code, MHMAMAS, which gives you a free professional account for life! That’s right, it’s free forever! All you have to do is go select a professional account and in the checkout screen enter the promo code MHMAMAS. The code expires in 7 days, so better hurry and sign up soon!
How Does It Work?
- Create an account. This is super easy and it took me less than a minute.
- Create your listing. Once your listings are submitted, they will appear throughout the website and will be searchable by visitors based on location, item type, or style. The cool map reminds you that you’re not in Kansas anymore on some archaic interface and are successfully navigating the 21st century.
- Use the cashless payment system. When you’re ready to buy and sell, you can do it securely with AGF Payments.
“We want to make local buying and selling safer, more secure, and simpler for everyone.” said Bryant Mangum, CEO and Founder of A Good Find. “The primary reason we created our site is to support families, moms in particular. Every person on our team is married and has kids, so it was incredibly important for us to create a platform where we didn’t have to worry that a family member was meeting a stranger with a stack of cash. There is a remarkable peace of mind and comfort knowing they can complete a transaction without a single dollar in their pocket.”
On Giving Back
Buying a used item can sometimes lose the element of supporting local communities and so AGF has created a service that puts the ‘Good’ in A Good Find. Not only are they supporting local sellers, handicraftsmen/women, and artisans by offering a safe marketplace, but they are also taking the next step in how they support local communities. They’ve been working with non-profits like Attention Homes to help further their mission of improving the lives of at-risk youth in the Denver/Boulder areas. Every new listing and cashless transaction directly benefits these local non-profits.
A Good Find is launching in Denver and you can get in on the ground floor as they grow! Anyone who signs up with the MHMAMAS promo code and creates new listings will automatically be entered into a contest: The top three randomly selected winners will be upgraded to a free marketplace account for life and will have their listing featured on AGF’s social media and in AGF’s newsletter.
