As Was Helps eBay Sellers with Holiday Selling
Between the many, large changes eBay has announced this year, and the economy, many eBay sellers are concerned about the holiday selling season. As Was, eBay’s first Certified Service Provider, has an unmatched track record helping eBay sellers grow, compete, be more profitable, and have higher DSRs (Detailed Seller Ratings).
The average As Was client grows their eBay sales 15% within weeks of finishing a project with As Was, and then continues to grow. The average client also sees fewer pre-sales emails, more eBay Store traffic, and higher DSRs. As Was is able to achieve these results, time after time, because As Was does more than design; As Was staff is made up of eBay experts in the USA to work one-on-one with each client to improve businesses and resolve areas where shoppers feel frustration, confusion, and disappointment.
"We took several months to finally decide on a company to help us with our template design and eBay strategy. After hiring As Was, we knew we made the right decision. It took about 3 weeks for the template to be completed, and the result was impressive. We instantly noticed a higher percentage of sales on auctions that had the template than my older auctions that had not yet been converted. This was no accident. The price I paid was small compared to the long term benefits I will receive." - eBay user ID suburbanwheelcover, June 2008, days after starting to use his As Was template.
As Was works with new eBay entrepreneurs as well as veteran PowerSellers, and starts with branding and identity; does the eBay seller have a name that people will remember? When a buyer remembers your name, they are more likely to look for you again, and to tell friends.
Next, As Was creates a design template for all of the seller’s eBay listings. Designs are always completely custom and unique, designed with the seller’s company image and personality in mind. As Was designs based on how eBay shoppers tend to think and behave, and never starts with a cookie cutter layout. The only thing As Was uses over and over is creativity.
As Was staff also rewrite, edit, and reorganize the seller’s policies. Better-written policies and a unique design keep shoppers interested, and make them more likely to read and understand the nature of the transaction. Shoppers who understand policies are more likely to bid or buy without bogging the seller down with questions, and are likely to give better feedback and DSRs since their experience matched their expectations.
Each As Was client gets a strategy report from our in-house Business Strategist. Sellers will get a fresh understanding of how to use item titles, listing timing, listing formats, listing features, and more to best capitalize on the demand for their items on eBay.
From there, As Was can design eBay Stores, About Me pages, off-eBay eCommerce websites, business cards, postcards, and other print materials, and blogs. The “Msss Kel’s Place” designed by As Was won eBay’s “Best In Stores: Standard Store” award for 2008. As Was acts as a full-service business and marketing consulting firm to eBay sellers, and is happy to provide anything sellers need to help them grow.
As Was listing templates are compatible with Vendio (including Vendio Desktop and Andale), Inkfrog, Auctiva, AuctionWizard 2000, Blackthorne Basic and Blackthorne Pro, Laris, Kyozou, Infopia, ChannelAdvisor’s Marketplace Advisor Premium as well as Marketplace Advisor, previously known as Marketworks, and any software that allows for completely custom HTML templates.
As Was also makes a lot of their advice and approach available to the public through their RocketPlace conference. As Was clients and non-clients are welcome to join us at The Rio in Las Vegas, September 10-12, 2008, for the best and newest techniques, strategies, and tools for growing eBay businesses.
