7 Tips For Selling Online (How To Be a Successful Online Seller)

1. A picture IS worth 1000 words. It’s old-fashioned, but people still like to see things before they buy them. For successful online selling, make sure any products you list online are accompanied by professional quality photographs.

2. Do your online research. When selling online, before you list a particular product, spend some time researching other similar products online and following the bidding process. This will help you gauge the interest for your product and help you determine how much your product might be worth.

3. Learn all about shipping. Shipping is under the control of the online seller, but some methods of shipping are better than others when you're selling online. You want to find the best method of shipping for your product in terms of expense and reliability and then specify that shipping method in your online listing. (And don’t forget to include the shipping cost in your shipping information for potential buyers.)

4. Pay as much attention to the writing of your online listing as to your picture. For selling online you need a powerful online listing. And the trick to writing a strong online listing is to combine search engine friendly phrasing with concrete details about the product in a way that will entice people to bid on your product. Take the time to craft your online listing just as you would any ad.

5. Offer a full slate of payment options, including credit cards. The more payment options you, as an online seller, offer prospective bidders, the more bidders your product will attract and the more successful your selling online will be.

6. Focus on getting positive feedback first. Feedback really matters when you're selling online. If you have a consistent record of positive feedback, prospective buyers will both bid more often and be willing to pay higher prices. So you may want to hold back on placing higher priced products until you have a successful track record as an online seller established.

7. Be business-like. Act professionally, provide the kind of superior customer service that will build your reputation, and make sure that you’re following all the business rules that apply, such as registering your business and properly charging and remitting taxes. Selling online is just like any other business; to become an online seller success, you need to follow the rules and provide the kind of customer satisfaction that will translate into increased online sales.
