As someone who enjoys having a side business, I recently started selling with a company called Yardsellr. There are many advantages to using the company and clothing is actually a good selling item for many sellers. However, there are a few tricks to making the most money from your clothing. Whether it means featuring the items during special sales or spreading the word about your items, there are things you can do to make more money. Here are just five tips for selling clothing on Yardsellr for maximum profit.
Take Excellent Pictures
Clothing is an item you must provide pictures for if you hope to sell it. People want to know exactly what a piece of clothing looks like before they make a purchase. You want at least two pictures to showcase the front and back of the item, but extra pictures of special details of the piece are also a good selling feature. Before taking pictures, make sure you have a good quality camera and good lighting. If you use your smartphone to take pictures, you can even setup an email address to email the photos to on Yardsellr for easy access.
Write Great Descriptions
There are a number of reasons to write great descriptions when selling clothing. First of all, each brand sizes pieces differently. This is why you want to provide accurate measurements. Another reason is that the color will appear differently on different monitors. This is also important if you're selling used clothing so that the buyer knows the exact condition of the item.
Feature Items in Special Sales
As a seller, you will receive emails about featuring your items in special sells. Yardsellr gives out what are called Photon$ and these can be used to purchase items. During these special sales, Photon$ are worth three-times as much on certain items, but you must feature your item in these sales to take advantage of this selling feature.
Boost the Listings of Expensive Items
While Yardsellr doesn't charge sellers for selling items on the site, you can boost your listing by spending a bit of money. This is something you want to reserve for higher-end items, such as a Coach purse. Spending $10 to boost your list, could result in selling that $400 Gucci bag in a matter of hours.
Get the Word Out
Last, but not least, you need to market your items. Post the item on Facebook, Tweet about it, Pin It and setup a page on Facebook that features your Yardsellr items. The more people who know about your listing, the better chance you have of making money.
Yardsellr is a great place to sell clothing. Not only can you sell your items for free, but you can get paid within a matter of days through PayPal or by check. What are you waiting for? Turn your shopping passion into a business.
