Do auction templates really
Your listing has to be
PROFESSIONAL. Let me tell you about our experiment.
We have tried various listings for the same item. And what do you think which
listing got the most bids? Right, listings with a professional UNIQUE design end
up with 30-40 more bids. Can you imagine that? It was exactly the same item.
Just the design of the sales letter can make a massive difference in the end
price you may get. It’s just amazing. We have saying in German: “Dash Ague sits
mitt”. The translation is something like: “If it looks nice it has to taste
better”. Well, as we know this is not always true though, but that’s the
psychology of our human brain. If the overall impression of the food is good, an
impulse is sent to the brain: This has to taste good – I want to try that. It’s
the same thing with buying in a shop or on eBay. If the auction website of the
item you are looking at looks nice, the product has to be good and it’s more
likely that you click on the “Bid now” button. We have seen that many times and
especially with our little experiment. So, if you use professional looking eBay
auction templates for your listings, you will be surprised how this may boost

clear and honest description and a good picture. If the overall design is
professional, believe me – it’s more likely that they place a bid. And at the
end of the day – that’s all it counts, doesn’t it?

Photography Tips for eBay Sellers
Don't use a flash, unless you are a pro. Flashes can wash out an
item. Use natural light or room light whenever possible.
Show close-ups of brand-name labels or stamps, as well as
certificates of authenticity.
Show close-ups of damage, if any, so customers will not be
surprised when they receive the item.
Use a neutral backdrop in your photos. You want potential buyers
to focus on your item, not on the background. If the background is busy or
crowded, it may be difficult for bidders to see the item clearly.
Your Auction Title
What's in a
name? Plenty, especially when it comes to auction titles. Compelling, useful,
and searchable titles are crucial to successful online auctions. Let's face it:
If you can't grab them with your title, your auction will likely get lost in the
When you're deciding on a title, consider whether or not the words included will
serve as good keywords--that is, words that buyers will do searches for when
they're looking for items on an auction site. Yes, with a snappy and well-done
title you'll be able to attract some rubberneckers; however, most users rely on
searches to find their items. By using good keywords, your auction is more
likely to show up in more search results.
For example, let's say you're selling that Wilco CD, which
is called "Being There." Here's a possible title:
WILCO CD Being There - Country Rock - Uncle Tupelo
Here we have the band's name (in caps), the
music format (CD), the CD's title ("Being There"), and the type of music
(country and rock), in addition to the band (Uncle Tupelo) that several members
of Wilco used to belong to. This covers a lot of keyword possibilities within a
small amount of space.
How about if you're selling a Phantom Menace poster (which probably isn't
worth as much as you'd like)? Don't just settle for "Phantom Menace Poster" as
your title. You've got more space than that--use it. Include "Star Wars" as well
(or any specific characters featured in the poster), so that someone who does a
more general search for "star wars poster" won't miss your auction.
