To be fair, you don’t have to track your listings. You can list your auctions like everyone else and then relist the item whether it sells or doesn’t sell. The choice is completely yours.
What makes you different from the professional sellers?
They track everything. That’s right. They can find out what keyword you typed in. Keyword is the exact phrase somebody typed, for example “crock pot recipe eBook” is a keyword(s), they can find out what time you visited the auction, how long you stayed on the page, what part of the country you come from, your IP address (your own unique computer location), if you returned to the page and how many times, what other items you looked at and whether you purchased the item or not. Phew, that’s a lot of info eh?
I’m going to be honest with you now. I actually stumbled across the idea of tracking your listings via another ebayer. So, this isn’t some secret that’s known behind closed doors, this is common knowledge. The only difference is, the ones that are using this knowledge can outflank and out maneuver their competition while they look on in amazement and scratch their heads wondering why they’re not making as many sales.
Not convinced. Let me give you an example. I recently listed a biodiesel eBook on eBay. I did my research first (which I’ll come onto) but I thought I’d throw between 6-8 auctions up just to see the results. Well, the results were astounding. The bulk of my visits to the auction came between the hours of 10pm – 12am. Guess when I got my auctions to finish? You guessed it, 12am. What does this mean? Well, in a nutshell, if I can list my auctions strategically to when my clients are actually looking on eBay will actually increase my chances of making a sale.
So, if I had my auctions finishing a 12pm and 2pm I’d have less chance of making a sale.
Again, this is common knowledge and you probably do this yourself? How many times when you’re searching for an item on eBay do you look at pages 5, 6, 7 or even 8. I can answer that for you. Hardily ever. Why? Simply because we’re all busy bees and want our info
NOW! The majority of us haven’t got the time to search through reams of pages to find what we want, thus, if we can find the info we want on the first results page we’re seldom gonna look at other pages. This has been proven by my stats.
