How to Be Seen by More Buyers on Ebay

With millions of items for sale on Ebay there are a few keys that really help your item to be seen.

Good Pictures

Always lots of good pictures.  EBay now allows you to post several pictures for free with your listing.  Take  at least a half a dozen to give your potential buyer a view of as many sides of your item as possible.   Put your camera on the highest quality setting you can.  Do not worry about a picture being too large.

Great Headlines

Putting the most important words in your listing at the front of the title is important.  Ebay allows a much longer title than they originally did.  But in the Ebay search engine the first words in your title are the most important.

Great Customer Service

Your previous customer service is used by eBay as a predictor of your future customer service.  So if you have made a lot of ebay customers unhappy your listings will not rank as high in ebay.  The better your Customer Service, the more your items get seen and Sold.  This has become a huge factor for Ebay to differentiate between sellers.

Great Customer Service is way more important than many sellers realize.  Be the best and you will get more views and sales on ebay.

Ebay Descriptions

Your Description should have all the information possible.  Many listings just put the basic information from the manufacturer.  If you have significant knowledge about the item, write it out and post it.  It will help your buyer and it will help your item sell.  I have a lot of items on ebay.  When I get a question about an item after I answer the question I will update the listing and answer the question in the listing.

Ebay Changes

The goal of Ebay is happy buyers.   All of the changes that Ebay has made over the last 10 years have been to make the purchase safer for buyers.  Without happy buyers the venue will just fade away.
