Are you tired of making only a small amount of money from Ebay? Would you like to start making more with what you have now? Look no further! Written below are 10 Ebay tips that will not only increase your revenue but increase your profits too!
Accurate Title & Descriptions
The first bit of information a buyer looks at is the title. If you can’t convert them from only reading the title to clicking into your description you’ve already lost money. When a buyer is looking for a particular item an accurate title with a promise will gurantee to draw them in. Here’s an example.
Lets say your buyer is looking for a laptop.
Title 1: old laptop
Title 2: Laptop For Sale/1GB Of Ram/ Like New Condition
Do you see just how different the titles compare? One title just tells you it’s an old laptop. While the second one jumps at you. It tells you that not only is it a laptop but its in like new condition with 1 gigabyte of ram!
Once you have a good title set you need to work on your description. Your description is the second most important task. A concise description not only tells the reader what they need to know but sells them on the item too.
Most first time sellers only list their item in one category. Why would anyone list in only one category is beyond me. One category means one type of viewer and only a handful of Ebay’s buyer seeing your item. If your item can be listed in more than a single category, list it in the alternatives as well. Not only are you going to get more eyeballs on your auction but you increase the possibility of your item selling faster and for the price you want, if not more!
I always urge first time sellers to offer free shipping. You can always cover the shipping in the sale, but that might take away a few bids. Your best bet is to offer free shipping and try to recoup some of the shipping cost via the auction. I always aim to at least cover half of my shipping cost.
Ebay isn’t difficult to monetize. You just have to play your auctions correctly and be upfront with honesty. A seller that is not only honest but shows the buyer what the item is will sell more then one that does not.
