Use YouTube To Generate Heaps Of Traffic To Your eBay Listing

eBay Comments Off on Use YouTube To Generate Heaps Of Traffic To Your eBay Listing

It’s no secret that eBay listings with embedded video will convert more sales than listings with no video. Yet it’s surprising that many people don’t think to do this.

It is actually very easy to embed video into your eBay listing. You don’t need your own website or hosting account. All you need is an account set up with YouTube.

Just go to YouTube and follow the directions to set up your own account if you don’t already have one, and upload the desired video from your computer. You want to make sure you provide a good title and keywords people will use to search for your video. You then have the option to embed the video. Just copy the “embed” code provided, then go to the description for your eBay listing, open the “HTML” tab and paste in the code. It is that simple.

Once you have your eBay auction listing complete, go to the listing and copy the URL from the address bar. Go back to the description for the video you uploaded to YouTube and paste the URL with a plug for visitors to purchase your product. For example: “Click here to purchase this product”.

By imbedding your YouTube video into your eBay listing and then linking the video on YouTube’s site back to your listing, you are doing two things to increase the chances of someone purchasing your items:

1. By adding video to your listings you are giving potential buyers more information about the product or products you are selling. These days buyers like to have a lot of information before they commit to a purchase, so the more information you can provide, the better it will work out for you.

2. By linking your YouTube video back to your eBay listing, you create the possibility of bringing more visitors to your listing. More visitors mean more sales. Just make sure to go back and remove the links when your auctions end.

As you can see, embedding YouTube videos in your auction listings is a very simple and effective way to increase sales. Just make sure you own the rights to the videos, and make sure your videos are high quality. Otherwise, some buyers may interpret the quality of your products to be similar to the quality of your videos and if your videos are poor or unprofessional, then potential buyers may be turned off.

So what types of videos should you use?

You could have someone create a video testimonial or review for your product. Video reviews are very powerful marketing tools and if done right they could significantly increase your sales conversions. If you don’t know someone who will do a video review, check to see if you can have it done cheap on fiverr.com.

You could also do a video demonstration of your product. Maybe emphasize how easy your product is to use or how much benefit your customers would receive if they purchased it.

If you are selling a video or video course you could put a small sample of the video so your potential customers can get an idea of what they are purchasing.

As you can see, it is really a win, win to embed your YouTube videos into your auction listings. It’s simple, it’s effective, and it’s good marketing practice. Just remember, if you want sales then make sure the videos are high quality.

A Few Tips on How to Get Started Selling Books on eBay

eBay Comments Off on A Few Tips on How to Get Started Selling Books on eBay

As an experienced book seller on eBay, I thought this article would prove helpful.  Enjoy!

If you are thinking of selling books online, the first online place to think about is eBay!

Products are easier and faster to sell on eBay than any other online market places. If you do not have an account yet, just go to eBay.com and register a new one. It is very simple and easy. What to do next is the big question. How do you sell books on eBay?
 
When you are new to online selling and you want to sell books on eBay, it would be difficult at first because you have to build a good reputation for buyers to trust you and buy from you. Your first buyer will be your most important customer because she/he will be the first one to give you a good feedback. One feedback will work wonders.  A few tips should help you in selling used books on eBay.

1. It is important to check on your inbox for buyer questions and messages. When potential buyers post questions, reply to them instantly and clearly. If it took you a long time to answer their questions, they will look for other sellers. One hour will mean a lot.

2. Offer many options for shipping methods when sending their books. Provide all the advantages and disadvantages of each shipping method. Give them estimated time before they receive their package. The buyer pays for the shipping and he has the right to choose which to use.

3. If somebody decides to buy from you, send them all the shipping information and a copy of the packing slip. Let them know that their purchase is on the way. It is also important to thank them.

4. When you sell books on eBay, describe the book exactly how it looks. Mention any dog ears, rips, tears, markings, and creases. Mention also the complete title and name of the author. If you are selling a book with many versions, indicate the version and year it was published. Other books have different publishers that you should mention too. The more information you give in the product description, the better. Answer all possible questions that a buyer might ask. Buyers will seldom buy from an online store with vague descriptions. They might not even spend time to send you a quick question and wait hours for your reply.

5. When you are selling used books on eBay, take pictures of the actual books and use them for images instead of an image of the front cover from other sites. Using actual pictures will give the buyer a concrete idea of what his purchase looks like. Take photos of front, back and all sides of the books. It will be helpful too if you post pictures of the flaws of the books. If a buyer receives a book with creases and dog ears on the corners, or old yellow pages, and it is not what he had in his mind, you might just be given a poor feedback for quality products.

eBay Millionaires Reveal Their Success Secrets

eBay Comments Off on eBay Millionaires Reveal Their Success Secrets

Tom Barnes, a former eBay PowerSellers and the author of “eBay Fortune – The Definite Roadmap to Auction Riches” considers eBay selling extremely simple. He claims that the only easier way to make money is if they grow on trees! Is it really possible?

Although we have heard about lot of people who don’t earn when selling on eBay, there are currently 4% PowerSellers among all eBay marketers. I read a testimony written by Tracey, who tells how she signed up to eBay last year, but never really sold much of anything. When she found “The Auction Wealth Map“, she decided to give eBay another try. Within the first month of business she earned a little over $3,400 in profits from her sales. She began to list more products by expanding into general sports equipments and no doubt that she will be reaching PowerSeller status soon. To be a PowerSeller according to the eBay’s requirement you must make at least $1,000 per month. Thus Tracey already qualifies as a PowerSeller

Many people are finding methods to get rich online and one of the best ways is to sell products on the auction site eBay. eBay is the largest online shopping destination. There are plenty of people whose full-time job is selling on eBay, and some of them have been doing it for years now. To become a successful eBay business owner you need to learn what eBay millionaires have done to make their money. The author of the “eBay Fortune – The Definite Roadmap to Auction Riches” provides proven tools that made him a millionare. He swears that he can turn you into one of the eBay ‘s biggest and richest PowerSellers on the marketplace! Many people make the mistake of thinking that they don’t need help in making money online and because of that kind of approach they lose money .

Tracey was smart enough to learn from PowerSellers and now she will become probably one of the next PowerSellers. Now there are even totally free courses available, as the recipient of the first eBay Entrepreneur Of The Year Award, Francis Ochoco gives his best selling eBay Course “The Auction Wealth Map” away for Free! Ochoco is well known for the speed in which he built a successful eBay business, and he is now teaching people how to achieve success . Thus you can take advantage of it! At least, I did.
