    The thread by 2011nfl was my inspiration. Thought I'd share some tips that have helped me make sales.
    • If promoting via EPN, post items from sellers local to the area. For example, if you're posting sewing machines to craigslist in Los Angeles, post sewing machines from sellers in/around the Los Angeles area. EPN lets you search for seller location based on radius/zipcode.
    • If promoting used products, post pics of the used products that don't look too professional. For example, a camera photographed on a kitchen table or bed. This gets a lot more responses than ads with the company stock photo.
    • Responding via email gets way more clicks than posting a photo with the URL and hoping people are smart/motivated enough to visit it.
    • When promoting in Facebook buy/sell groups, don't post the affiliate link. Just post the photo, description and price. Then reply to inquiries with the affiliate link.
    • Post new items and refresh ads on Thursdays. I always get the most inquiries on Fridays (payday for most people in the US).
    • If there's a group that is underserved in your city, promote items that are hard for them to find locally. For example, if your town has a small but sizeable Polish community try promoting items used to make pierogies (or whatever, you get the idea).
    • Keep refreshing the ads that get responses, even if they're old. I've been refreshing one ad for a used DSLR camera for over a month and it keeps getting clicks and sales.
