Some items advertised for sale at Junk Mail takes longer than to sell than others. This post is the first in a series of 3 that give advertisers tips on how to improve their experience and sell their items quicker. Today’s post will cover the topic of editing one’s advert.
One of the reasons your advertised item might not be selling might be because you’ve used the same wording on the advert for ages. It might also be because no photos are added for your advertised item. Junk Mail users can edit their adverts by making use of the “Edit” link provided on each advert e-mail confirmation that is sent out.
If you are struggling to sell your item take note of these handy tips for editing your advert:
- Change the format of your advert if it doesn’t make sense. Make sure that the person reading your advert will know exactly what it is. Make sure that you include the correct keywords for your advert. Make sure that the spelling is correct in your advert text.
- Make sure that you mention important aspects of the item you are selling. For instance, if you are selling a digital camera, make sure that you state the amount of megapixels the camera is. If you are selling a vehicle make sure that you include the year model, colour, standard features and extras in your discription and so forth.
- Add a photo for more exposure. We allow users to ad up to 15 photos per advert. Studies have shown that advertising an item with a photo could increase your exposure by up to 8 times.
- Your advert might not be getting exposure because it’s placed in the wrong category. If you’re unsure about this contact us to confirm that the category your advert is placed in is the correct one for the item.
