New classifieds every day!

Hey there, savvy seller!

So, you've decided to declutter and make some extra cash by selling your used items online. Great decision! Online classifieds can be a goldmine for both buyers and sellers. But hold on a minute before you hit that "post" button. While honesty is generally the best policy, there are some things that are better left unsaid in your online classifieds. Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of what not to mention in your classifieds. Anyway, it is a public informational space, so some rules apply.

  1. Personal Information First and foremost, for your safety, never ever share personal details like your home address, social security number, or bank account details. Instead, arrange to meet buyers in a public place, or use secure online payment methods.
  2. Overly Emotional Stories While it might be true that you're selling your guitar because it reminds you of your ex, potential buyers don't need to know that. Stick to the facts about the item and leave the emotional baggage out.
  3. Exaggerated Descriptions It's natural to want to hype up your item to make it sound appealing. But calling your old couch "practically new" when it's got noticeable wear and tear isn't doing anyone any favors. Be honest, but also highlight its best features. Lies won’t help you to sell your stuff on the long term.
  4. Desperate Phrases Avoid phrases like "Need gone ASAP" or "Will accept any offer." This might make buyers think you're desperate to sell, and they could try to lowball you.
  5. Your Reasons for Selling Unless it adds value to the item (e.g., "Upgrading to a new model"), it's best to keep your reasons for selling to yourself. Buyers are more interested in the item's features and condition. Unless they ask. For instance, why do you sell this bike? I started learning some bike tricks, so this bike is not suitable anymore.
  6. Previous Prices Don't mention how much you originally paid for the item unless you think it'll make the deal seem more enticing. Saying you bought a dress for $200 but are selling it for $20 might raise questions about its condition.
  7. Repairs and Fixes If an item needed repairs, it's essential to be honest about it. However, avoid phrases like "just fixed" or "recently repaired." Instead, focus on its current condition and functionality.
  8. Personal Opinions Stay away from statements like "I think this is worth..." or "In my opinion, this is the best model." Let the item speak for itself and let buyers form their own opinions.
  9. Overused Phrases Terms like "mint condition," "like new," or "rare find" are thrown around so often that they've lost their impact. Instead, be specific about the item's condition and features.
  10. Your Negotiability (Right Away) While you might be open to offers, don't mention it in your initial post. Wait for potential buyers to approach you with offers, and then negotiate.

Selling online is both an art and a science. While it's essential to be honest and transparent, it's equally important to present your items in the best light possible. Avoiding the pitfalls mentioned above can help you attract genuine buyers and get the best price for your items. Happy selling! ??️?

5 tips for writing an excellent classified ad

Writing an excellent classified ad may make or break how soon and at what price you sell your item. Here are five succinct bits of advice to help you create the perfect advertisement:

  • Clear & Catchy Title: Your title should grab attention immediately. Use relevant keywords and be concise. E.g., "Mint Condition iPhone 12 - Blue, 128GB."
  • High-Quality Photos: A picture is worth a thousand words. Include clear, well-lit photos from multiple angles. Make sure they highlight the item's best features.
  • Detailed Description: Be specific about the item's condition, size, brand, and any unique features. Avoid fluff – stick to the facts.
  • Fair Pricing: Research similar items to determine a competitive price. If you're open to negotiation, consider adding "OBO" (Or Best Offer) to show flexibility.
  • Contact Details & Safety: Provide a safe way for buyers to reach you, like an email or phone number. Always meet in public places for transactions, and mention this in the ad to assure potential buyers.

Remember, honesty is key! Misleading buyers will lead to wasted time and potential disputes. Good luck with your sale! ??️
