4. Auction Start/Close Time You must plan your auction start/close time around bidders you wish to attract to your auction. If product you are selling appeals to working woman, best time to start/end your auction would be in evening or on weekend. Always create a profile on your product and what group of population you are selling to.
3. Item Description Not enough information or too much rambling of information will discourage people from bidding. So too will to many typos. Your item description must be clean and concise. Succinctly provide all information required to describe item sufficiently and create buyer interest.
2. Image You need to use an image on your auction page. Remember a picture is worth a 1000 words! Potential bidders will want to see what item looks like before they make a bid. With digital cameras, being so affordable these days adding a image to your auction page is easier then ever. But, make sure image is clear and well lit to show it's detail or any imperfections it may have. Also, keep image at a reasonable pixel size so your auction page doesn't take to long to load.
1. Headlines This is most important issue for getting more bidders to your auction page. You must include words that people will search on eBay. And, you must make your headline enticing, so potential bidders will click it. If you are selling an antique make-up table a headline saying old vanity table would not pull in a lot of bidders. But, if you said something like "Vintage Vanity Table - Mint Condition - Collectors Item" not only would you get more potential bidders to view your auction, you would also be using words people would search eBay for. Your auction title would appear in searches for Vintage, Vanity Tables, Collectors Items. Therefore, allowing even more potential bidders to see your headline.
