How to place the perfect ad

Uncategorized April 7, 2013

When structuring your ad make sure to keep in mind the things that buyers want to see. This will help you get the best price for your listing.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when placing an ad that will help generate viewer interest and result in the best possible competition for your listing:

Be Clear:

Be sure to write clearly about your hair in the listing description and use simple clear terms that describe what you are offering. Any history about your hair will give a buyer more insight into what they are bidding on.

Use Photos / Videos:

Pictures and videos are the best way to convey what you have to offer and generate interest. We recommend using a minimum of four pictures to help you sell your hair. Be sure to take clear, well lit shots. We recommend you take them outdoors in the natural light to provide the best possible photo or video of the texture, health and thickness of the hair you are offering. Use a measuring tape in your photo or video to give the buyer a visual perspective of the length and thickness of the hair they are interested in. If the hair has already been cut, a good idea is to place the ponytail on a white towel or piece of fabric and place a measuring tape next to it so the buyer can clearly see the length, true color, texture, and health of the hair. Make sure you do not forget to comb the hair and treat it as if it is still on your head prior to taking the photos. You want to make your item look as good as it can.

Some buyers prefer to see an “after” photo of the person who supplied the hair to be sure the hair that they are buying is genuinely from the person shown as the seller. Developing a relationship of trust between buyers and sellers is crucial to getting the best price, so offering this is one way to encourage people to bid with confidence. The more you make the buyer at ease, the smoother the sale will go.

Caution with Photos and videos:

You should always use your own discretion in choosing to show your face or not in your ad.

Examples of good photos and video:

Below are some examples of successful hair ad photos. You do not need to have the best photography equipment to create effective photos. Just do the best you can and chances are that your photos will turn out great.

Great tips & tricks to help you sell your hair online!

Uncategorized April 7, 2013

We wanted to share a few tips & tricks on the best way to make a deal when selling your hair online. If you’re having trouble making a sale here are a few things we recommend doing.

When listing your item for sale do not set a “starting bid” higher than one dollar ($1). You can set a reserve price to make sure your item does not sell for less than what you would like to receive for it but, setting a starting bid too high can discourage buyers from bidding. Another good idea is to check out other ads that have bids on them. Check and compare your item with the ones that are being bid on and see if your length, color, thickness, and asking price line up with what the market is willing to pay. Sometimes we tend to think what we have for sale is worth a lot more than what the market will pay for it and these listings end up with no bids or sale. Picture this, you are at yard sale, the owners placed a sticker with a  “starting price” on each item for sale. Normally that buyer sees that price and will haggle and try to purchase the Item for less than what the sticker says. In a auction setting such as OnlineHairAffair.com if your asking price is too high a buyer cannot place a bid lower than that leaving the seller not knowing if anyone is interested because nobody is bidding .

We also recommend giving the best description you can about your hair. Buyers want to know how often you get a trim, what shampoo and conditioner you use, do you use styling tools on your hair, and how often. Any information you can share with others will better your chance of making a sale. Pictures are your best friend when trying to sell something. You need to ask yourself if you would purchase an item over $100 online site unseen. Even if the photo is not the best quality it is better than not having one at all. Having photos will also help in increasing your chance in making a sale.

We hope you find this information helpful. If you have any tips or tricks you would like to share, please contact us or comment below.
