How to sell faster?Top

In order to make a listing that is attractive and one that promotes the chances of a sale, the following things should be kept in mind:
It is very important to upload a picture that is clear and emphasises the strong point of your product. If your product has a unique design or is from a well recognised brand, make sure your picture covers those aspects. Also, avoid taking pictures that are blurred, hazy, too dark or too bright. Style your products well and click them in natural light to make it appealing.
The price:
Make sure that the product is set at a discounted price. The more reasonable the price, higher the chances of your product getting sold. You can base the price on aspects like the condition of the product, the brand and its age. Keep your prices reasonable from the first go itself. Discounted prices guarantee higher sales.
Ensure that you give a catchy title to your listing. Get creative with it, as it will catch the attention of the Buyer.
Be as descriptive as possible while describing your product. Add in all the key points, like the material, the fit, the condition and any other tidbits. This will clearly answer any queries a buyer may have in mind.
Agree for negotiations:
If Buyers makes an offer for a lower price, consider the offer. If the price seems decent you can sell faster rather than loosing on the sale.
Be Social:
When Buyers comment on your listing with any sort of queries, be immediate in your response. Prompt responses keep the Buyer engaged, thus sparking their interest in your product further.
Sell Quality Stuff:
No matter how reasonable the prices, Buyers will not opt to buy your products if they are of low quality. Always ensure that your products are in good condition before opting to sell them.
