online auction websites 2
Many people have started their own online auction websites and leave Ebay and the others to fend for themselves. Remember, when you have a membership on Ebay or similiar website, all of your traffic is dependent on them.
If they stop sending you traffic for any reason, your out of business. Plus, you are paying them part of your commission. Setting up your own personal online auction website eliminates these problems, but creates some others.
The main one is you are no longer under the wing of the parent site, so unless you advertise, no one will know you exist which means you have no traffic, and no sales. So, how do you advertise? Start by doing a keyword search and install powerful, high ranking keywords in the text of your site. Find a clever, easy to remember name for your site.
List your auction website on the online yellow pages, put flyers up at flea markets and other locations that cater to auction minded people.
You may wish to get some courses on auction websites to simplify your learning. I recommend the Online Auction Profit System Brand New Easy To Follow Video Course Showing You How To Make $1000s Per Month On eBay Or Your Money Back!
Advertise on social media websites like Facebook and Twitter. Write eye catching text to draw visitors, and trade links with related websites. For example, if you auction camera equipment, trade links with large camera retailing sites, and other private auction websites. This will not necessarily bring in more traffic, but the webspiders like it so it may help your standing in the search engine.
You will also have to set up a program to take care of credit card billing. As well as membership software to keep track of all of your clients. The membership sites such as Ebay know you don't want to go to all this trouble. But if you succeed in starting your own auct`ion website and get the traffic, your profits will be much larger.
If you start your own site, you will need a quality website builder program to deliver a professional looking website in order to draw customers. Your traffic will judge/trust your business as the judge/trust your website. So give them a quality impression.
I would recommend using a professional quality website design builder such as SiteBuildIt (SBI). They offer a cut and paste method of building a high quality, traffic attracting, auction website by using the above listed methods as well as others.
Go to our website design builder page for more suggestions on finding a website builder program that suits you.
All this without having to spend time learning html code, although you can use html if you choose. Build a online auction website you will be proud of, and visitors will find it easy to use.
No matter what type of online auction website you choose, good luck with your new business.
