Ebay Sellers- How Photo Sharing Sites Can Save You Money Powered By Docstoc
					Any eBay seller is well aware of the importance of photographs to make a sale.
People usually want to touch and feel the product they buy, especially if it is a
nonstandard or high involvement category. In circumstances where they cannot do
that, they increasingly rely on pictures to help them decide. Unfortunately, one picture
is usually not enough. Customers want to be able to look at multiple angles, which
means extra pictures and bigger costs to the seller. One great solution to saving on this
additional expense is the enlistment of photo sharing sites.
  What Are Photo Sharing Sites?
  Photo sharing sites, as the name suggests, are free or paid-for sites that allow users to
upload multiple numbers of photographs, videos, and other images and share them
with their friends, family, or even customers. They are easy to use, requiring filling
out a simple membership form and providing a few essential details.
  The total capacity and exact format of how the pictures can be displayed will differ
from site to site, but most sites allow thumbnail views, slide shows, and other normal
organization of your visual media. You also have access to a number of customization
options that allow you to make changes to your photographs or custom make them for
your targeted audience. You can use Photoshop to make changes or cut and paste as
required to create an artifact of choice.
  Why Use Photo Sharing Sites?
  While photo sharing sites have been around for some time, most sellers
unfortunately choose to stick with a few photographs rather than invest time and
effort in using a photo sharing site. That is not a wise decision. These sites actually
save both time and money in hundreds of ways. You just need to create a photo
repository once and then link it to all the various forums that you plan to be selling on.
There is no need to create or look for pictures every single time or pay extra when you
want to show multiple shots or angles.
  The ability to see the product so closely also inspires more confidence in the mind of
the buyer, helping the seller attract a higher premium for an otherwise standard
product. Research shows that descriptions with better and more pictures command
better prices than those without.
  EBay is a great medium to sell your wares, provided you help the user make his or
her choice with all the tools that technology provides. Most people will choose a
product with multiple pictures or links to a seller’s website over a product that gives
scant information. Pictures also promote impulse purchases thanks to the visual
appeal they add to an otherwise drab description. In summary, it is a good idea to
consider signing on to a photo sharing site and give your eBay store all the advantages
it needs.
  Dropshippers reviews and dropshipping scam which you can read here will help you
examine or evaluate a product and its manufacturer. You can read about other people’s
opinions and make an intelligent decision about wholesalers.
