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 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.
