So what New Year’s resolution have you made? Exercise every morning? Eat healthier? Start a new hobby? … What about sell more? Yes, sell more. Sure, that sounds great but how?
Basically this is a great time to evaluate your online and offline marketing strategies. Is there room for improvement? Do you see competitors doing some form of advertisement that you aren’t doing? Has an advertisement caught your eye in the past six months that you still specifically remember? – that was probably a pretty good advertisement.
You need marketing answers, so to get those answers you need to be asking yourself and others around you questions. Are there any other places I can “touch” the buyer? Maybe a website, online ad, publication, business partnership, direct mailing, giveaway, competition, etc? In my advertisements, can I get buyers “closer” to my items? Do I make myself more accessible to buyers? Am I providing the information they are looking for? Is my marketing engaging or boring? Do buyers trust my advertisements?
Often good advertisements are creative and different which brings me to ListHD. If your marketing strategy includes craigslist (which it probably should), you should consider using ListHD. Items posted on craigslist using a ListHD template stand out.
In simple terms, when you post on craigslist with ListHD, you give buyers more to look at – more images and larger images. When you give them more to look at, they look at your ad longer. Your item is represented in “high definition”, which gets buyers closer to your item and you closer to a sell.
ListHD also makes it easier by providing a centralized place to advertise. Create the advertisement of your item once, then generate templates to post elsewhere, or simply link to your ListHD ad. Doing this allows you to modify your ad in one place, so that you can easily modify details or mark the item sold later.
When buyers are shopping, they are usually researching and making comparisons. If you prefer to sell a make or model of an item because it has been proven to you to work better or last longer, share your knowledge with the buyer. “In my X years of being in business, more customers have been happy with this item than that item because…” or “Since this house has brick on nearly every inch of the outside, maintenance of it on the outside will be very minimal.”
I think you see the benefit of this by now, but there are other services out there too. Why use ListHD? Sure there are, but ListHD provides options without the price tag. All use of ListHD is free, even dealer services. Using ListHD, dealers can even manage their inventory with an excel feed – saving time when adding or modifying items.
ListHD can also be used to generate eBay templates.
