One of most important, and least-utilized, features on eBay is "About Me" page. With your About Me page, you can promote yourself as a seller, promote all of your auctions, and show off your eBay Feedback ratings. This provides credibility for your auction business, and also gives you an opportunity to express your unique personality.
To create your About Me page, log into eBay and go to "my eBay" tab at top of page. Once there, select "about me" tab. This will bring you to About Me creation page. Simply click on "create and edit your page" button to get started.
eBay offers three different pre-packaged layouts for you to choose. Once you've selected your template, you will be presented with a form. All three templates will ask you to complete same information.
Before you start to fill in form, you should think about what you want to accomplish with your eBay business. For purpose of this article, I'm going to pretend I am in antique tin toy business. With this example, I'm letting my personality shine through to help build a following with tin toy collectors.
Page Title: Chuck's Antique Tin Toys
Welcome Heading: The Finest Tin Toys on eBay!
Welcome Text: Hi, my name is Chuck Smith, and I LOVE TIN TOYS! I've been collecting antique tin toys for over 10 years, and discovered eBay was a great place to find more toys for my collection about three years ago. The problem was I was buying so many, I was running out of money. But my loss is your gain. I decided to use eBay to finance my hobby and I'm offering antique tin toys (at least ones I don't HAVE to have for my collection) on eBay.
Another Paragraph Heading: In my auctions, you will be given detailed descriptions of every item I sell. You'll see exact condition, including complete descriptions of any flaws. I will also give you as much information about toy, including manufacturer, history, and provenance as I can provide. I want you to feel comfortable when buying from me. On this page, you can see my Feedback and also other Items I have for sale. I hope you'll enjoy my auctions, and I look forward to doing business with you in near future! Good luck!
Picture: You can add a picture of yourself holding a toy. To get a picture on eBay, you will need to either have a Web site where you can post files already, or you can use one of many picture hosting services available on Internet.
