Make more money on Ebay part 2
Mastering your Item listing
This is the 2nd of 3 articles I am writing to help you make more money on Ebay.
Ok for this lesson I am going to focus on what I think is one of the most important things you must learn to make more money off Ebay, and that is to create an awesome item listing.
I am gonna use as an example for this lesson a step-by step walk through of how to build a great item listing, it really doesn't matter what you are selling, this works with anything you are selling on ebay.
Open up your Software you are using to build your webpage.... if you don't know much about building webpages dont worry you can find out more info here.
Always make sure that you have a very accurate item listing, and always have multiple pictures of the item and tell everything you know about the item...Ebay has a tool where you can list an items UPC code or an ISBN number into their system and it will pull up all the info about some products for example if you put in the UPC of a DVD it will tell you everything about that item except what condition your item is in.........you can read more about this from ebay's site by clicking here
Try to use this feature whenever you can it will always help your listing , then build a simple webpage for your item listing, remember that the big advantage to this is you can add all the pictures you want and not have to pay for the extra Ebay photo pack charges and also link to your other items etc.
Another thing that will help you is to make sure your auction listing is easy to read and understand, I recommend using the same text size and a very simple design when building your item listing, make sure that the buyer knows how much the shipping is and it has a contact form that they can email you with and answer all questions and post them in your item listing so everyone can see it, that is a feature that ebay offers whenever a buyer contacts you through ebays email, you can check a box and post the question and answer into your item listing.
SO lets review this lesson real quick.
Make sure when you build your auction listing to have a accurate description of your item, including several pictures, make sure to keep the listing simply worded so anyone can read and understand it, make sure to include the price of shipping in the item listing, also include what type of payments you accept, and answer all questions as fast as possible and include them in your item listing.
OK that is it for this lesson. in the next lesson I am gonna cover Pay-Pal, shipping and common mistakes people make on Ebay.
