My May eBay challenge – Day 6

As of EOD 5th May
Target: £55
Actual: £37.50

What I will try to do in this month’s series of blog posts on my May eBay challenge, is to give you constructive and useful information that you can use to help with your eBay business.

I will not go into a lot of depth on each tactic, as I would like to write a separate blog post on each tactic with the appropriate blog post title rather than using ‘My May eBay challenge …..’ for example.

You need to get traffic, or visitors, to your eBay listings.  After all, more traffic equals more sales, and more sales equals more profit.

One method you can use to drive traffic to your listings is what you are reading right now.  My blog.  Write a blog post about your eBay business.  Write a seperate blog post on your different listings.  Write a blog post each time you list a new item to your inventory.  Put a link to your eBay shop on your blog, and in the relevant blog posts.

To browse my eBay listings, you can view my eBay shop by clicking HERE and my eBay shop will open in a new window.

If you do not have a blog, you can get one started for nothing.  Simply go to www.blogger.com or www.wordpress.com, and then get posting and writing articles about the products you are listing.

You may wonder how this will help.  Well search engines love websites with rich original content and that are regularly updated.  Because of this, blogs can get great positions in search results.  For prove of this, search Google for my name, ‘Marc Sampson’.  At time of writing this post, this blog you are reading right now is number one, and look how many results there are.  Now think about if you are writing a blog post on a certain item in your eBay inventory, and then someone searches Google, or any other search engine, for that item.
