Recently I have been hearing people say that their sales have not as been as
good as they were a few months back. Well, this could just be down to the fact that it is summer and people are away on holiday, spending time with their children and just spending more time outside.
Yes, I know there are other reasons why sales can be down, such as more people are selling the same item, prices have dropped and maybe even the product is coming to the end of its sales life. In fact, it could be a whole host of issues, but it could also be down to something else, something so simple you will kick yourself when you find out. Any ideas?
It could just come down to the fact that you are not listing enough items on your selling platform – eBay, Amazon, Etsy. In fact it does not matter which of the platforms you list on, what matters is you list items on a regular basis.
In an ideal world if you can list items on a daily basis you would see your sales increase on a daily basis. Also, you need to keep adding new items to increase the total amount of items you have up for sale. It is a proven fact also the more items you have up for sale, the more items sell.
So what next?
List items on a regular basis – ideally daily but if that is not possible try and list a few times a week at least.
- Increase your stock levels on a regular basis
- Join the above two actions together and you will see increased sales and more money in your bank accounts.
