My life and hence my schedule has gotten off track the past week and a half. I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday and only just realized it's Tuesday. I typically feature an eBay Tips and Tricks column on Tuesdays and I am totally unprepared for it today. So here is some general advice for you eBayers out there.
1. Set up an eBay Store. You'll never achieve the success you want without one. The cost is minimal and even if you don't list store items it will display all of your auction and Buy It Now listings together. This is great for buyers who want to browse.
2. Learn some HTML. It doesn't take a lot of knowledge about HTML to be able to dress up your listings and give them a more professional look. eBay buyers like to shop in the stores and listings that are pleasing to the eye. Make yours pleasing. This is one of my favorite sites to learn some basic html code.
3. I recommend using whatever FREE tools eBay offers. Selling Manager has some wonderful time-saving features and it's free with a Store subscription. Use it! Use the marketing tools that are available on your Manage My Store page. The listing header, Promotion Boxes, Cross Promotion Displays, etc. They will all help to generate traffic to your store and listings!
