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?
a descriptive text capsule followed by side-by-side ebay/amazon capsules for same product
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.
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.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...
