Although eBay recently introduced Ebay Reviews and Guides, sellers on the site hardly ever use them, much like they do not use the About Me page.
I’ll go over how to use this fantastic feature to advertise your eBay store in this article:
What is a review or guide on eBay?
A review is merely your subjective assessment of any item available on eBay, such as a CD, DVD, book, etc.
After assigning the product a five-star rating, you write a brief personal review mentioning your likes, dislikes, and other thoughts.
A guide can cover anything on which you are competent to provide counsel.
To go along with my eBay store, I turn these newsletter articles into “Ebook Success” guides on eBay.
But guides don’t always have to be about your eBay store.
You could write fishing guides, for instance, if you’re an avid fisherman.
Why should I write a guide or review on eBay?
Personally, I think writing guides is preferable to reviewing them.
This is because the only recognition you get for writing a review on eBay is a brief link to your eBay feedback profile.
You will get a link back to your eBay feedback profile, eBay store, eBay About Me page, and a few of your active listings when you write a guide.
Either way, the goal of writing a review or a guide is to promote your work.
Readers of your guide or review will be made aware of your presence on eBay, and they might click on a link to one of your pages, which could result in a sale.
What subject should I cover in my eBay review or guide?
I write “Ebook Success” guides, which are essentially converted copies of these newsletter articles, as I previously mentioned.
But there are countless options.
Simply consider your interests, occupation, or any other subject you are sufficiently knowledgeable about to create a book series on.
Anybody can write on a minimum of one topic.
Once your topic has been identified, divide it up into manageable, pertinent guides.
If you’re having a terrible time coming up with a guide topic, consider reviewing a product you already own.
Even though the promotion won’t be as good as what you would get from a guide, it’s still free publicity for you.
That’s the only thing about it.
If you continue to write guides on a regular basis, people will come to appreciate them.
Your reviewer rank rises in proportion to the number of favorable ratings you receive.
Additionally, the more guides you write, the more eBay pages you have promoting your store, listings, and reviews.
It’s best to jump in now, while the majority of eBayers aren’t writing reviews and guides, as these are still relatively new and haven’t taken off.
In this manner, you’ll have a strong base to start from when it grows to a larger scale.
This is an excellent opportunity for promotion that you should not miss.
You can have a long-term, free promotional tool at your disposal for five minutes of writing.
