.Net: How to improve your eBay store by Mark Buckingham

No primary category set

The March 2012 edition of .net magazine is out and the headline story is how to “Improve your eBay Store today!” written by eBay education specialist, SEO specialist and eBay business consultant Mark Buckingham of Netseek.

Within the article Mark discusses both the mechanics of eBay retailing such as eBay Top Rated Seller Status and how that affects your business, as well as delving into the depths of Best Match, Mobile Commerce, eBay Catalogue and how to keep your costs down.

Of course no such article would be complete today without advice on how to protect your Detailed Seller Ratings and Mark covers this as well along with how to give gold star service and handle eBay communications.

Mark has done his homework with quotes from Angus McCarey, eBay’s Retail Director, Patrick Munden, eBay Head of Communications and he’s even squeezed in a quote from TameBay.

There’s advice for everyone trading on eBay whether it be how to rack up your customer service a notch, how to get to grips with eBay search, or just how to lower your eBay fees then the article is worth perusing.

If you’re near a reputable newsagent or WHSmith then a copy will set you back a mere £5.99, but as an added bonus you’ll find a £50.00 Google adwords voucher inside (valid to 14/2/12 dropping to £35.00 until 31/3/12). That’ll pay for the magazine and more, but to be honest if you run an eBay business (or especially if you are thinking of setting up an eBay business) then this is a must read article.

You can also buy the digital version of the .net magazine with the eBay article direct from the .net website, or directly from Apple for the iPad or iPhone.
