Increase and Drive Traffic
Social media is here to stay! Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram……the list goes on and on! Why not take advantage of getting your eBay listings in front of more people and “SHARE” on social? It can drive traffic to your listings for free!
It’s easy to do!
On each eBay listing, you will see these icons at the top right of the screen: email, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
If you click them, one by one you can share the listing immediately with your followers on that social media account. As an example I am using a current listing that I have on eBay (item number: 383028424778)

Don’t Over-Do It!
While it’s not a good idea to just click and share, share, share to bombard your audience. Try using your social accounts to help your followers with info, tips and other points of interest.
Perhaps you have an interesting find while thrifting or garage saling. Or you have a favorite eBay story about an eBay home run or score. People love to hear from you, but try to pace yourself regarding sending links to your listings all the time.
Other items to add: a funny meme, inspirational quotes, a delicious recipe. This is one way to contribute to your community and friends in a positive way rather than only selling! It’s a two-way street and one can reciprocate for a better social connection!
