    I just make my first flippa site auction and It will close in the nest 48 hours. Please I need advice on when to make this auction a FEATURED LISTING. I have 380+ views, 13 Watchlists and 1 bid only.

    I will appreciate your contributions.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    well if I can remember well when I used to do flippa a lot, I used to list my website featured just before the end of the auction (so it looks Hot) but when it have some bids (so it means it's popular) and somewhere in the next 48h to 24h before I end I would list it on Featured page and then it will get on Most active (because of bids) and it will get on "Ending soon" because it's ending soon right on time and you will get most of your listing...

    It always depended on HOW LONG it will stick to the featured page (back then I used to calculate that) so that you can get really most out of it...

    This means your slip is showing

    translate

    Something on your listing isn't finished and potential bidders are seeing it and not bidding. You should have a minimum bid per 100 views if you started at a reasonable price and offering a decent product. I'd advise you NOT to spend more money on the listing until you get it properly dressed.
