CLAD Genius is a professional software application whose purpose is to help automate ad campaigns to Craigslist, Backpage and Kijiji, while offering support for scheduled tasks, automatic or manual CAPTCHA recognition, license manager, web browser, and database manager.
The tool reveals a multi-tabbed layout that provides quick access to the key features of the program, namely Main, Advertisements, Accounts, Identity and Information.
Additionally, it displays a log at the bottom of the Main window that records information about all your actions and possible errors, and lets you create new campaigns, import campaigns from EAPD/Troopal, and remove or change the properties of a campaign.
What’s more, you can password-protect the utility so unauthorized users cannot access your sensitive data, back up/restore user data, and work with a Token manager.
The Main panel also offers support for a built-in web browser that helps you jump to a custom address, refresh the current page, and clear cache/cookies.
Creating a new campaign
CLAD Genius gives you the option to define a new campaign by specifying the name, catchall domain, user-defined words for ad randomization, as well as footer and header, and template for random email creation.
Personalizing campaigns with the aid of ads
Embedding an advertisement in your campaign may prove to be a little more difficult, as the tool comes with a multitude of dedicated parameters that you can use. You may alter the content (posting title, specific location and custom text messages which can be written in plain text or rich formatting by inserting images and links, altering the text and changing the alignment).
Furthermore, you may schedule an item included in the campaign by specifying the start and expiration dates, entering details about the publisher (e.g. email, duration purchase order, size/dimension), and setting priorities for the current task.
Additionally, you may add user-defined images (JPEG and GIF file format) from your computer or URLs, select the target categories for Craigslist, Backpage, eBay Classifieds US and Kijiji-CA, as well as use account bindings only if you need to get responses from specific cities/categories.
Plus, you can edit or remove ad items from the list, export the list with ads to XML, HTML or plain text file format, import data from XML file format, and copy or move the selected ads to another campaign.
The Information panel is the place that offers details about each Craigslist, Backpage and eBay Classifieds campaign, such as status, posted, confirmed and published dates, and summary (total and successful attempts, and total progress).
CLAD Genius comes with a comprehensive suite of features for helping you set up email accounts and email servers, credit/debit cards, as well as Craigslist accounts. Each of the aforementioned account comes with its own set of parameters for helping you alter the campaign in detail. The tool is able to reveal a list with all the messages, senders and receivers, received date and subject.
When it comes to tweaking the parameters related to Identity, you may define proxy connections (e.g. IP address, port, proxy type, campaign, vendor, batch number), RAS entries (dialup, DSL/ADSL/cable, macro/batch or script), and IP addresses.
Rich-featured suite of configuration settings
CLAD Genius gives you the possibility to log all messages to a single file, validate email accounts automatically, automatically identify IP origin (geographic location), as well as tweak a series or parameters related to browser, posting (mutations, regions, Craigslist, eBay Classifieds), and CAPTCHA, accounts, as well as identity.
A powerful and efficient app
All in all, CLAD Genius proves to be a reliable program that comes with a comprehensive suite of features for helping you create ad campaigns, and is suitable especially for advanced users.
