Transcript

  • 1. Store & Listing DesignsThat Make the Sale
    Debbie Levitt, CEO
    As Was
    www.aswas.com
  • 2. What Do You Think Of This Guy?
  • 3. Three Ingredients for Success
    The right items at competitive prices. Fill a demand.
    The right eBay listing strategies so that you are found at the top of search. Change with them.
    A compelling listing that answers questions, makes people feel trust, is organised, and just makes people feel good about you!
  • 4. Tips for Item Descriptions
    Use colors that complement each other.
    Enough text - background contrast to make things easy to read. Don’t:
    Navy on medium blue
    Cyan on orange
    Pink on white
    Dark red on black
    Don’t abuseHTMLfontcolorcapability. It’s more likely to make you look amateurish than like a seasoned selling veteran.
  • 5. Let Information Be Information!
    Let your template’s design and layout be your design and personality.
    Let information be information.
    No multiple colours.
    Don’t centre everything.
    Don’t change fonts.
    Don’t use unprofessional fonts.
    Make info easy to read… like newspapers, books, magazines. That’s what’s comfy!
    People don’t read. Why are you writing so much?
  • 6. Stop The Insansity
    Friends don’t let friends use Comic Sans…
    Or centre everything…
    Or write stuff in funny colours…
    OR IN ***ALL CAPS*** AND BOLD!!!!!
    Because this looks unprofessional.
    Not distinctive. Not comic. Just sans.
    Newspaper articles aren’t written like this.
    Professional ads are not designed like this.
    And there’s a pile of good reasons WHY.
    Want to keep reading? Nope, me either.
  • 7. Shoppers Who Have Questions…
    Our research showed that shoppers who used ASQ didn’t come back and buy or bid. Why not? Chances are they:
    Knew they wanted this. Came to eBay and shopped for it.
    Found your listing and looked at it. Didn’t full trust it enough to bid or buy. Maybe they ask a question, and maybe they just leave.
    Hit their back button. Kept shopping. Found other listings. Trusted one, and bid and bought.
    The end! You lost! Even if you answered their question an hour later!
  • 8. Name That Mood!
    Good designers create designs with a mood.
    Not just a layout.
    Mood, personality, company image.
    A memorable experience.
    Stand out from other sellers and businesses.
    Time to play Name That Mood!
  • 9. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 10. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 11. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 12. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 13. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 14. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 15. Mood? Image? Personality?
  • 16. OK, What Now?
    You CAN do this inside eBay.
    Oh yes you can.
    Stop making excuses.
  • 17. eBay Store Rules & Best Practices
    No contact info in the header, design, or 310x90 “logo.” NONE.
    Minimal design works best.
    Logo, header.
    Colours.
    No Store home page.
    eBay cracked down on overdesigned eBay Stores in January 2009. If they were working, they wouldn’t have threatened to take thousands of them down.
  • 18. Broken Rules, Cluttered
  • 19. Award for Quality!
  • 20. Listing Rules & Best Practices
    Information in this order:
    Description and images
    Shipping timing, pricing, insurance, international policies
    Returns, guarantee, warranty
    Payment and tax
    About Us
    Move major selling points up (ie: awesome return policy, guarantee, warranty)
    Punch people in the face with important messages. Not everybody scrolls. You gave up reading half my slides. Nobody reads. You’re still reading? Well, stop reading and listen to me. I’m talking!
  • 21. POW!
  • 22. ZAP!
  • 23. BOFF!
  • 24. If It Has To Be White…
  • 25. Design Makes A Difference

  • 26. Same Old Same Old
    Don’t use busy, repeated patterns, even if they are available somewhere for free. 
  • 27. No Priorities, No Mood, Boo
  • 28. Good Design is the New “White Space”
    Does it really work? Yes. You need mood and personality more than you need white space.
    Anybody can have white space.
    One template only, by the way!
    No collages! If your kid can do it with Elmer’s, it’s not professional design.
  • 29. Let’s Buy A Guitar
  • 30. Now, Let’s Sell It
  • 31. Our Templates Rock!
  • 32. Before
  • 33. Before & After
  • 34. Seller’s Research
    Seller did A/B testing in Aug & Sept 08:
    More watchers, Store traffic, multiple sales.
    When new design was 30% of listings, it was 90% of sales.
    Items that hadn’t sold since May sold within an hour in the new design.
    25% of auctions that weren’t selling sold nearly immediately when switched to the new design.
    Fewer pre-sales questions.
    Repeated comments about the top of the template being interesting. It makes someone "want" to scroll down to see what this seller has to offer.
  • 35. Typical Results
    Our average client sees one or more of the following:
    More brand awareness.
    GMV increase an average of 15% within a month or two of working with us.
    Increased off-eBay sales.
    Higher sale prices.
    Fewer “stupid questions” (customer service emails) while sales go up.
    More traffic to their eBay Store.
    More multiple purchases.
    Higher DSRs.
