    Hello BHW Members, I have created this thread for some ebay advice. First off let me say im not here asking for some spoon fed methods. I am simply here to just hear what you guys think and what advice could you offer me. I have a ebay account that has 31 positive feedback. I got some from buying but i sold some stuff here and there. I found a website that has great quality clothing for men and women and also a website that sells gadgets and electronic products such as earphones for $1.00 and a spy camera watch clock for $34.00. These are dropship sites. The dresses i sell are dropship for $4.00 and sometimes $8.00. These same dresses can easily be sold for $34.00 and more. But i just want to know why aren't my listings for clothing selling? I list with all product info, size, material, quality, a short story of why they might want it, 14 day money back guarantee, i accept paypal, and shipping is 7 - 15 days from china. So i dont get why arent i getting any buys from fixed listings or bids. Maybe i am doing something wrong i dont know but its annoying that i cant seem to make a sale.

    Here are links to my ebay listing:
    1. http://www(dot)ebay(dot)com/itm/130...X:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_2118wt_1142

    2. http://www.ebay(dot)com/itm/1307568...X:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_1111wt_1139

    To moderators: I am not marketing these link i am just showing an example of what I have listed in reference to my question.

    I don't get much views really and no bids what so ever. Please let me know what I am doing wrong please.

    Thank You

    Okay, first off - add more words to your listing. Like for an evening dress - evening/ party /club /cocktail dress. for bohemian dresses - boho/bohemian/hippie dress/frock/ - add as many synonyms as possible.
    If you look at the popular listings, you will see the sellers are using more synonyms. for a shirt - tank/top/tee/t-shirt/

    Second thing - use ebay pulse and google keyword tools to search for what people are actually looking at. For example 10k people may search for dress but only 5k search for evening dress. Helps you narrow down your titles for the products.

    Number 3 - promote your store with website/blog . Requires some SEO and stuff.

    Number 4 - Patience !!

    Few of the tips I learnt.

    Remember that every listing needs High quality content.
    Such as product information. You really need to expand your keywords to.
    Basically eBay ranks your page higher when you have more quality content.

    Good Luck

    If you link buyers to your site try and build a list if you can.

    I agree that word expansion should be used, the more keywords used the more exposure to users
