How to sell
Write a great title – To attract the right buyers to your item it is important to write a good title. Every word is important and should be informative. Use brand names, sizes for clothes and shoes and terms that you would type if searching for this item.
Describe your item thoroughly – Don’t get too promotion happy with your description. Yes mention the attractive points about your item but don’t hide any faults. Be as thorough as you can and then buyers won’t have any scope to complain about issues you have clearly mentioned.
Upload plenty of pictures – An item with lots of pictures is much more likely to attract a lot of attention than one without any, or with just one. Buyers need to know what they are spending their money on, so upload plenty of pictures.
