Following our top tips will ensure a good response to your ad and make sure you are getting the maximum amount of enquiries!
Advert title is vital! - a good title will make your advert easier to find on Wightbay. Include as much relevant information as possible and think about different terms people will search for when looking for your item (e.g. ‘sofa’, ‘couch’, ‘sofabed’).
Picture Perfect - A picture paints a thousand words. Adding multiple photos will make your advert stand out from the crowd and entice potential sellers, who's going to enquire about something they can't see?
The devil’s in the detail - Use your description to let potential buyers know as much as possible about the item. Keep it friendly and informative. What condition is your item in? How old is the item? Leave no questions unanswered!
Is the price right? Be realistic. If you overprice your item, it will deter buyers from looking at your ad. See what similar items are being sold for - this will ensure your item is priced competitively for a super speedy sale.
Share it! Share on social media and reach even more local people!
