    5 Golden Tips For Your eBay Listing's Title

    Whether you sell a few items a day or thousands, these golden rules will help you increase sales dramatically! Let’s say you are selling an iPhone 4S:

    A. Bad : iPHONE 4S CHEAP BUY IT NOW

    B. Good : White Unlocked Apple iPhone 4S 16GB BNIB UK Model

    Now let me explain why B is so much better than A.

    1. Always use your 55 characters. This is so important; however, many people simply disregard it. Foolish! You should never waste a single character. Think of these so called characters as advertising your product to the potential customer.

    2. To save space we have used an acronym "BNIB" which stands for Brand New In Box, which would simply take up too much space.

    3. There are SO MANY juicy keywords! These are very important. Keywords such as "Unlocked”, "Apple" , "iPhone" are key to the listing's success. The only way a potential customer can find you is if you have these. For the bidders to find your product out of the thousand of others, you have to include as many key words as possible.

    4. A is full of capital letters. Contrary what some eBayers say, your title should never be full of caps. It puts of the bidder, it is almost as if you are shouting at them to buy the product, like at a market stall at 9:00 AM. You have to professional in your title.

    5. You have to include as many specifics as possible. Most people normally just scan the listings looking for specifics such as the colour of the phone, or the size of the memory. Easily forgotten, it is important to implement these into the title.

    Until the next post, happy eBaying!

    Do people search for 'BNIB' as a rule?

    I managed to boost a clients income 300% over april & may by kicking the crap out of their store SEO.

    Each niche would have it's own acronyms but you also have to cater for the non-net savvy customer.

    So many people are let loose into the internet purchasing world without any idea on internet safety, baffles me.

    This is great advice but be careful not to keyword spam. Ebay is rather ruthless in banning.
