    So as some of you may have noticed ebay and amazon sales have sky rocketed during the past year.
    Everyone is learning about ecommerce, there was more online sellers then ever before.
    People are adapting to this new technology and to this new information that is given to us.

    What I had learned, is a Tip that will help you to increase your sales on ebay or amazon.

    Technology is developing, and times are changing.

    mobile-vs-desktop.png

    As you can see this is a chart that shows the percentage of sales of mobile and desktop buyers
    What I've come to realize is that I need to adapt to this.

    Ebay predicts that by 2018 they will be at 60 - 40 ratio.
    60% Mobile Users, 40% desktop users.

    What does this mean?

    This means people are buying on impulse.
    Time is consuming so people use their mobile devices to buy, because they are on the go.
    Buyers get in and get out.

    You know Money Talks,
    So does the way you present your offer to your buyer.

    1st thing you need to do to increase your sales is eliminate your stupid description templates.
    The Buyer comes in he looks at your sales page and gets out.

    2nd you need to present a clean and well written description about your product.
    You need to get straight to the point, zero hesitation.

    3rd. You need to present good visuals of your product,
    Include close ups, and invest in a new camera, The buyers want to see up-close detail.

    These are the things you need to consider,
    Once again, I presented you the information, now it is your choice to act upon your idea.


    Regards,

    actually what that tells me is you need to have mobile-friendly html in your listings, which most sellers don't

    Well considering that they just announced that they're going to limit html to 800 letters and default item description will be 250 letters auto generated by eBay on mobile devices, it'll make picture and title even more important.

    Yup I was surprised by that too, 800 characters like wtf?
    Is this as history book or something.

    Short simple description does the trick all the time,
    you can never beat that.

    Clarity is key, the more clear your descriptions are the better it is for the buyer.
