    what are your thoughts about using both ebay and amazon capsules in a sales hub for price comparisons?

    or should a hub focus on one or the other, not both?

    for example:
    a descriptive text capsule followed by side-by-side ebay/amazon capsules for same product

    thanks

    Have a look at some of Nelle Hoxie's hubs. I believe she uses both in hers. She's the resident sales Guru!

    I think I would prefer either one, trusting you to point me in the right direction. Once comparison begins, a customer might be tempted to leave your site and start searching around the Internet.

      Thanks, that is similar to my thinking. I wonder if comparison might dilute the "best deal" impression given by promoting one source.

        I use them both.  If a person can compare on the hub, I think he or she is less likely to go elsewhere to compare.  Plus, some people just prefer buying on EBay to Amazon, or vice versa.

          The only difference between you and I is that you know what you are talking about. Comparison shopping was never my style, I prefer a single trusted source.

    I think you would be fine with both. Hubs are a single page of text with some ads slapped on them, and I really don't think any shopper out there looks at them as a trusted source. They do, however, trust eBay and Amazon.

    What you need to do is test your theory. Do three hubs--one all Amazon, one all eBay and one a combination. After a couple of months, take a look at your conversion rates and see what works best for you.

    I use both side by side.  If you show a comparison, and with it a good deal, I think people are much more likely to buy, rather than look for a better deal elsewhere.
