Ten Sure Fire Ways To Lose Bidders
The way some auction sellers approach their auctions, it's clear there are as many ways to lose bidders as there are to skin a cat. If you spend enough time in the auctions you'll see a lot of basic mistakes, but the question remains: why do so many people consistently make the same mistakes over and over again. Is it that they are just placing auctions for the fun of it - without expecting to sell the item- probably not!
Here's our top ten sure fire ways to lose bidders (in no particular order):
Let's look at each one in a little more detail and see if you're making the same mistakes.
Short, Sloppy or Excessive Descriptions
No Shipping Amounts
Lack of Response to Emails
Unrealistic Reserve Price
Low Feedback Rating
No Condition Information
Bad Start/Closing Time
Making sure you don't make these few mistakes will improve the number of bids your auctions receive.
