Why does Craigslist have a much better response rate than BizBuySellcom?

I get steady responses (and serious buyers and offers) from listing on Cl yet nearly nothing from this service, which I am paying for. Does anyone else have this experience?

Less expensive, small, local companies will get a lot of response. At $500K + we don't even bother with craigslist, frankly we rarely sell through bizbuysell either. calling associations, trade organizations or industry buyers works best for us.

I get a lot of response from Craigslist, but no valid Buyers. I guess it depends on what you are selling.
