"Over 54% of eBay auction listings end without getting a single bid," says Derek Gehl, CEO of the Internet Marketing Center (http://www.auctiontips.com). "But, sellers can use proven online marketing strategies to help ensure they do make money on eBay."
Internet marketing strategies like building an opt-in list and using email marketing to follow up with customers can increase sales by 30% or more, according to Gehl.
Gehl names three key Internet marketing strategies that can help sellers get -- and maximize -- their eBay sales:
1. Using keywords in auction titles. "Using keywords in your title that people are actively searching for is key to getting listings in front of the most buyers," Gehl says.
2. Staying in regular contact with prospective bidders and buyers. Gehl says people who add a seller to their "Favorite Sellers" list have the option of signing up for that sellers' newsletter. Says Gehl, "Sending your subscribers a regular newsletter is a terrific way to build relationships and advertise your other items."
3. "Incorporating proven copywriting techniques to describe items. Writing about how an item will benefit the buyer rather than just focusing on its features can help boost sales," according to Gehl.
"eBay sellers who don't take advantage of these strategies are missing out on huge potential profits," Gehl says.
