You can break it in 6  main sections.

Step 5

Use the Social media.
As more people are into You tube,Facebook,Twitter and so on.

Try to create and account with all of them and market your product without paying a cent.

As people are more likely to buy if their feel in the own environment. 
Do consider, even if sometimes frustrating as it seems  to be to have so many accounts.

Step 6

Customer Service

It relate to step 3 yet is essential to take into debate as many make a lot of mistakes not taking that much serious.
Relationship with customers brings a lot of benefits to your business.
So treating customers with respect will get them to be loyal to your business.
As more brand are researching how to increase their capabilities in this field.
I think that is natural that you would do the same.

On of the thing i tent to do is always to send e-mails thanking them for(purchase,leaving feedback for taking time to answer to my messages and so on)
It will create a good habit in you and increase your traffic and most sure your sales.  

Step 7

Working on your Description of items.
So many times the Item Description is left most of the times empty.
That show not much trust to the customer.
Using a HTML Editor your can add pictures and details to your description.
My recommandation  e-store temples if you google it is free of charge.
It is a great tool that you can use it to increase your traffic and sales.
Yet last to increase your traffic try to use as much as lot of words in your title Title 
description.
If you are a UK seller put UK in your title as people will search on e-bay engine
your product will be more visible.
