Selling Strategy: List Items Every Day

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I don’t know about you, but it seems like my pile of items to be listed on eBay never ends.  Sometimes it gets smaller, but most of the time, it seems to get bigger.  When you list online, it seems that the work is never done.  Job security is what I call it ;)

When I don’t have a lot of time to list everything at once, I like to do the following:

*Take pictures of everything I plan to list that week.

*Get the pictures ready

*Sort them by similar items (Jeans, shoes, DVD’s, etc)

*List 2-3 items per day.

Sometimes, it’s 5-6 items a day, just depending on what I’m listing, and how much time I have to list.

If I have time, I do like to list 15-20 items in an afternoon, but that doesn’t always work.

Life happens, and the point of being self-employed is to enjoy what you’re doing and not have to stress out about it.  If you don’t have time to list large quantities of items in a day, just list a few items every day.  By the end of the week, you’ll have listed a minimum of 21 new items if you list at least 3 items per day.

As you list new items,  different people look at your store.  Someone may be looking for that pair of shoes you just listed and find your store that way.  They may leave your store with something entirely different than what they came to your store for in the first place. That doesn’t matter.  The more you list and the more types of items you have listed, the more you’ll attract people (and most importantly, different people) to your store.

The point is to get people looking at your store.  They can’t find you if you don’t list……and it can’t sell if it’s not listed.

Happy Listing!!!

    Thank you for posting this. I have been slacking on listing, and have noticed my sales have dropped dramatically over the past couple months. I keep saying I need to start listing again, but I keep making excuses. A goal of 2-3 listed a day is totally feasible! I kept looking at it as “I have 100 items to list, that’s too much to handle”…but 2-3, or if I have time for more then great, that’s totally realistic!

    Thanks for giving me the kick in the rear that I needed!

    That is so true Rachel. It is easy to get overwhelmed with too big of goals. If you find yourself stressed over listing, slow down and do it in small bites so you can enjoy life to it’s fullest! Switch it up a little!
