Default In general. Copy.

I know I can list on ebay, but after the ebay, paypal, and shipping fees (like a large stroller) would likely eat any potential profits.


You don't give much to work with, but, in general try better copy. If you are not using eBay to sell, then is this mostly local? Where do you advertise?

In general, you will find more pics and longer reason why copy to be your friend when wanting faster flips.

Now I believe in faster (lower) profits rather than holding something for that long, one week is too long, so 2 to 3 weeks might mean you are giving up quicker turn over for bigger profits. I believe that circulation beats storage or holding every day of the week.

Now there are a lot of Chattelers these days, and some like to hold and store stuff, even have storage places, garages filled...and it works for them.

So without knowing too much about what you are doing, the one piece of general advice would on your copy, especially headlines, and give the reader a reason why you are selling this thing.
