I know a number of people who are trying to sell their stuff online, but they wait by their phone all day and it doesn’t ring, and they wonder what they are doing wrong.
Here are tips to get noticed:
Have a Clear, Detailed Title
Your title should be descriptive, if it is an electronics gadget, make sure it has the manufacturer name, type and model.
Pictures, pictures, pictures
Take good, clear pictures. Don’t use generic images from the web because you won’t look genuine. Anyone can get images from the web… so take your own pictures, and not just one.. but many. You can upload up to 17 pictures!
Be precise, but provide enough detail. You can ramble and praise your item as much as possible, but honesty is key to winning a buyer’s trust.
Pricing is of course, key. Look around to see how much others are selling similar items, and set the right price. And because you have the title, the pictures and the description well done, then you’re likely to sell your item faster.
Provide a reliable contact
When you give out a number, be available for contact, or state the hours you will be available. If someone calls your number several times and you don’t pick, they will move on to the next person.
Every few seconds, people’s ads are popping up online of similar items. So after 3 days if you ad hasn’t sold, you might consider editing the above details.
