More appealing + more sales!!

Sales for me have been slim as of late on eBay and I started to wonder why???? Possibly my concern was spurred by the fact that I recently spent about $100 at Goodwill on a spree and was hoping to see some speedy returns :)
One Day I noticed something significant! My Dear Trash has a link to Laura's eBay store on the side of their blog. I was checking out her deals and saw that her pictures are almost always taken on her hard wood floor. And it has a really nice stand out effect! She is so smart!! So I looked at my pictures on my auctions and decided I needed some drastic action. I retook all my clothing pictures!! Previously all my clothing pictures had been on hangers. Ad really that's not always flattering nor can you see most details of clothing that way. In my case the spot I'd chosen was between my computer desk and my kitchen counter, fine except you can see phone /computer cords in some of the pics. For example this one: After seeing the new pictures I just had a great feeling that this week would be fantastic!

And - drumroll please - it was!!! Although a lot of the items sold these week were ones I've had in my ebay box for over a year!! Woohoo for cleaning house! Here are some of the best sales:

  1. You are so cool and your wood floors are gorgeous. Thanks for the ultimate compliment. Keep it up and make lots of cash.

  2. I love it. I would also recommend you put your photos inside your ebay listing using Html code. It stands out and gives your buyers much bigger pictures. :) Best of luck.
