Increasing sales through our portal is a little like bowling a strike – it looks a lot easier than it actually is.
This might seem painfully obvious, but it’s amazing how many sites write checks their products can’t cash. Not only is honesty to your or any business’ reputation, but it also fosters and encourages trust in you or your brand.
Create a Sense of Urgency
It’s important, to be honest, and transparent about who you are and what you do, but there’s no rule against creating a sense of urgency to persuade prospects to buy from you right now.
Provide Various Payment Options
Since many buyers have their own preference of payment options, it is advisable to accept the different payment options.
Answer All Queries
A customer wants to minimize any risks involved in making a purchase, so try to answer all questions and queries.
Try to Give Away Free items if Possible
People love free stuff, and the more you give away for free, the more favorably prospective customers are likely to perceive you and your brand, which can result in more online sales, eg. a charger with mobile.
Take quality photos
Customers want to see what they’re buying, so it’s important that each of your listings includes high-quality, original photography. ‘Good quality images are crucial in a generation when people are addicted to visuals on everything from Instagram to Facebook,’ says award-winning eBay seller Max Godin.
