Another Top 10 Strategy for Growing Your Business on eBay - From eBay's Seller Information Center

Do your research! Before listing, learn all about how eBay displays search results, and find out if your item does best in a Fixed Price format or an Auction-style listing.

After listing, use the Listing Analytics app to get insight into the visibility, clicks and sales your listings are generating. Learn about your best and worst performers, and revise listings right from the app to maximize sales.

Track trends using third-party tools such as Terapeak and analyze your eBay sales performance, understand key growth contributors and identify opportunities and areas for improvement with eBay Sales Reports and eBay Stores traffic reports.

A Time-Saving Tip from the eBay for Business Blog

The eBay for Business blog is chock-full of useful advice. Check out this recent time-saving tip:

As all experienced sellers know, great communication — and building positive relationships with your buyers — are key to creating long-term successes on eBay. An essential part of this communication is feedback. When you leave positive feedback for your valued buyers, you help encourage repeat business — and you showcase to others that you are a pleasant seller from whom to purchase. Most importantly, leaving positive feedback for buyers encourages them to leave positive feedback for you.

Selling Manager, which is free to all sellers, lets you make quick work of leaving positive feedback for buyers with stored feedback comments. So you don’t have to type in a new comment each time. Instead, you can store up to 10 customized feedback messages for your customers. Five are provided to get you started, but you can edit, delete and create your own at any time.

The eBay Small Business Challenge

In 2012, a team of employees at eBay Inc. wanted to find a way to connect with the communities where they lived and worked. They wanted to give back to the local businesses and non-profits that made their communities a home, and they also wanted to learn something new. From that desire, the Small Business Challenge was born.

The Small Business Challenge gives employees at eBay Inc. the opportunity to spend 10% of their working time with a team of like-minded employees, partnering with a local small business or nonprofit to learn about their business and solve challenges that the small business has identified. Teams engage in friendly competition to see who can have the greatest positive impact with their small business partner.

This year’s 2014 Small Business Challenges are already underway through early November in Austin, TX, and through early October in San Francisco, CA. Meanwhile, eBay’s Scottsdale, Arizona office is accepting applications from local merchants through July 18th. Find out more at http://smallbusiness.ebay.com.
