How do I attract more buyers?
- Become a verified seller
- Make sure the product picture has a high resolution (always use flash on the camera, even in natural light). Be sure that the environment is clean and attractive to look at.
- Close-up pictures draw more attention
- Create catchy headings with popular keywords
- Don’t overemphasize or be too dramatic when describing the product, it comes off as dishonest…keep it as simple and detailed as possible
- Be competitive with prices, make sure you are within the range of other similar product offerings
- Maintain great communication with buyers, respond to emails quickly
- Ship within 24 hours if possible, otherwise, keep it within the stated time frame
- Keep your customer as happy as possible
- Be as honest and accurate about the product (this prevents returns)
- Leave positive feedbacks for buyers and they will more than likely, do the same
