One of the great things about eBay is that there are a lot of powerful ways to market your items and pages through cross promotion.
Cross promotion is the art of getting people who are just ‘surfing’ through listings to stay on your pages for longer. This can take a number of forms, but in particular it means adding links to your other items on each and every item listing that you put up.
One of the best ways that I’ve found for doing this to great effect is to sacrifice one or more of your best listings at any one time.
eBay gives sellers the option of featuring their listings in various ways. There are two options in particular that work in a very powerful way to do this.
The first is to feature your item in the search listings. This costs less than $20, but it puts your listing right at the top of the search listings for the keywords that are being searched. This can give your listing a lot more exposure because normally listings only rise to the top of the search pages when they are nearly complete (as the default search display option is listed in order of least time remaining on an auction).
The second and most powerful way of getting your listing noticed by hundreds of members is to feature your listing on the eBay home page! This costs a little extra, but for under $40 your listing is going to get maximum exposure.
Selling an item that is HOT at any time on eBay and featuring your item in the search rankings or on the home page attracts a lot of interest and many of the people who view your item will go on to visit your store or your other listings or your About Me page and this can attract a lot of attention to the items that you are listing at minimum cost. In particular drawing attention to the items listed in your eBay Store gives you the leverage of being able to list store items for next to nothing and then driving traffic there from your featured pages.
Also, another little known fact about featured pages is that they rank very highly in Google! And this remains the case even after your listing ends!!
What this means is that even after your featured listing is over and your item has sold you will still be getting a lot of search engine traffic to your still active listings.
I recommend buying a few items from eBay itself that have attracted over 1000 visitors and reselling them. Even if you don’t make a profit on these items you are investing money very wisely into your eBay business for a long time to come…
