I’ve had a few of emails what’s the best way to generate visitors to your ebay listings. Whilst I’m certainly no Ebay expert I’ll show you some of the techniques I use to get people to check out my auctions.
Photos: It’s no doubt that using photos of scantily clad women attract huge attention to your auctions. Check out this auction for some ideas.
Getting People to put your Auction on their Watchlist: Some ebay listings have quite ingenious ways to get you to add their auction to your Watch List. The more watched an item is the more likely it’ll make it into the Most Watched Items List.
Know your Market: Spend plenty of time seeing what other people are doing. See who else is selling what you are selling, see who is doing it most successfully, see which of their products/titles is converting most often & build on that.
Writing Compelling Titles: You want to catch people’s attention so don’t write lame titles. You want to get the person into the auction & then start preselling them the product or service that you’re offering. I normally research my competition to write titles effectively, then split test them over the course of a week for performance.
Use Bold or Featured: Many people don’t want to spend the extra cash for these addons but depending on what your CPA is or what offer you’re promoting using these features could double, triple or quadruple the views on your listings.
Ending the Auction: I’ve found the best time to end an auction is between 6-9pm on a Sunday Evening. I always try to run the auction for the full amount of time aswell.
Increase your Reputation: Buy lots of small $0.01 items, I bought about 250 when I first joined to get my reputation up & instill some trust in my buyers.
Set up a Store: If you’re pushing enough volume set up a store. It’s only US$15.95/month (Yearly subscription fee). You can get more information at eBay Stores fees.
Use TurboLister: I use Turbolister to list all my auctions easily & quickly. This speeds up the process & allows me to spend more time on promotion.
That’s about all I can think of at the moment hopefully this helps some of you guys that have been struggling a bit
