Adverts.ie is a great place for our users to buy and sell electronics. From speakers to TVs to the newest iPhones anything can be found on the site for the best prices. We spoke to one of our best sellers of Electronics and asked his advice on how to present your ads to optimise sales.
Hi Jobidoo, thanks so much for speaking with us. We know you’re a great seller but what type of items do you buy on the site?
I usually buy smartphones, computers, tablets etc. All tech really. Though I’ve bought all sorts over the years including DVD’s and HiFi equipment.
The majority of your Sold items are in the Electronics section. How do you value your items to stay competitive?
Well my philosophy is to price items to be enticing whilst not being too cheap. With the view to getting a quick sale, which is always preferable to me. I often see others getting more for similar items but then that might be after a few days or so. Each to their own here I guess.
It is always nice to get a quick sale. What other advice would you give to sellers who want to shift their items quicker?
My advice would be to take some good quality photos of the item and describe them in detail and be honest. An ad described honestly makes potential buyers feel that the person is honest, and they are then more likely to buy from them. Obviously the price is key too. I think my way of pricing keenly while making it clear that no offers below will be accepted works well in conjunction with honest ads full of good pics. People often buy my items pretty quickly.
That’s great to hear you’re so successful. You have 400 positive feedbacks. How can our other members best maintain a positive rating?
Well, what has worked for me is honesty, good communications and punctuality. I think if you stick to these principles you’re unlikely to cause a bad experience for another user, and likely to build positive feedback quickly. I know many folk that I’ve met via Adverts and they all stick to the same principles and all have excellent feedback, so there must be something to them.
This is all excellent advice. Any other suggestions for new users hoping to start trading in electronics?
Without wishing to sound boring I’d have to say again that good pics, properly and honestly described items and a realistic price is the way to go. Also, if new members are looking to get off the ground, so to speak, I suggest being flexible regarding meeting up. Maybe being willing to drive a bit to meet potential buyers. Once the positive feedback starts building up and a good reputation is earned then buyers might be more inclined to put in the extra bit of effort to meet. To summarise; good pics, well described items, honesty, good communications and punctuality are the way to go if one wants to successfully utilise Adverts.ie. And it’s a fantastic site for those that do!
Thanks so much Jobidoo for talking with us today.
