Ways to Improve Your Selling Position on Ebay
Selling your personal items, new and old, on eBay has become extremely popular. It has become more popular than listing items in a local newspaper, or having a yard sale. With eBay, you can reach far more potential buyers in a matter of minutes, and it’s easy. The cost to list and sell items is very reasonable, and there are ways to improve your selling position on eBay. Let’s take a look at a few of those little secrets to put you on top, when it comes to selling on eBay.
Most importantly, you have to give the buyer what they want, and make your item for sale stand out. This involves making everything about your listing clean and neat. Make a great, eye-catching heading for the item. Create a heading grabs the buyer’s attention. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes when creating your listing, thinking about what would appeal to you. The pictures you create and post for your item should be clear and detailed. Most buyers are very visual and purchase items based on how well you photograph them. Experiment with different backgrounds and positions for the items you wish to sell. Make sure all items that are included in the sale are in the photograph. The description of the item for sale should be very detailed and include correctly spelled words. Make the description exciting with power words, as well as bold and colored words. Your description should be informative and explain all of the positive aspects of the item.
It is very important not to over price your item. If you are listing an auction type ad, start at the lowest price you can accept. If your item is priced low enough, most buyers just love competing with other buyers for a low priced item. When buyers compete, your price goes higher!
Additionally, buyers love free things. Throw in an extra little freebie with the purchase as an incentive, or better yet, offer free shipping. Some buyers will only purchase items that offer free shipping.
As soon as you receive your payment, package the item well and ship promptly, including a little thank you note in the package to the buyer. When you make your buyer happy, they provide good feedback for you, and good feedback gives you more stars, and more stars gives you a good reputation as a great seller.
