HOW TO VIRTUALLY GURANTEE YOU KILL YOUR EBAY BUSINESS

Posted by ebayprofitmaster on March 30, 2010

If you’re not careful you can destroy the eBay business you have worked so hard to build up. Although it’s possible to start all over again, would you really like to go back to the drawing board with a whole new eBay account and prove your worth all over again?

How not to run your ebay business.

Lets look at things you should never do:

1. Lie about your listing.
If you state that something works well when there is a problem with it, or state that it is in excellent condition when it is not, then your customers will simply leave negative feedback!

2. Post an item only when it suits you.
If you keep your customers waiting and wondering when their item will arrive then this is virtually guaranteed to make them purchase from another seller in future (plus will result in less favourable feedback).

3. Not respond to messages.
Whether a message is from a customer or a potential customer, you should make sure you respond to it as best you can. You might think that selling on eBay can all be handled automatically by software these days but it still requires some input from you.

4. Just sell rubbish quality items.
You cannot just sell any old cheap garbage you found and expect to make a big profit on it. Neither can you simply anything regardless of its quality or price just to get an extra feedback score. Whatever you sell reflects on you no matter how cheap the item is, so always sell something that has a decent quality.

5. Do not always refuse to give a discount.
It is a good idea to offer a discount for bulk orders, as it might be beneficial to you if you can make your customer feel special. They may well become lifetime customers of yours if you can occasionally offer them a better deal.

6. Don’t make your listings visually unappealing.
You should be careful not to make your listing so painful to look at that people just want to click back to the last page they were viewing. Even though all those colours, fonts, graphics and auto playing tunes might be eye-catching and memorable it will not do you much good if they put more people off than they attract.

7. Use poor quality photographs or none at all.
As your buyers cannot touch the items for sale (like in a real world shop) then the only things to help them decide to purchase will be photographs and listing details, therefore you want great quality photographs of your items (if you are selling the same things over and over again you will then be able to use the same photographs repeatedly.
And as for your listing details you really want to offer them as much details as you can. They don’t have to read it all if they don’t want to, but you should at least make all the information available to those that cannot decide quickly on their own without your help.

That was how to destroy your business quickly, but next time we should look at how to make selling on eBay a success.
