On the tweeter auction, it may work out with your category switch.. (not saying positive or negative on it as I am unsure)..
Good pricing, though.. Good timing.. 7:45pm..
I think a FAR better category would be:
Since, it appears, no one is in that one..
PUTTING UP AUCTIONS:
You have only two up? You should put up much much more.. As usually, the sell through rate is like 1 out of 3, so if you have 3 auctions up, could be 1 sale, could be 2 sales, could be zero sales.. Who knows..
So, the idea is to put up enough to make some money.. Otherwise, it will just annoy you waiting forever with only a couple auctions, like 3..
To give you an idea.. I had up over 100 auctions at any given time.. Actually, I think it was more like 120 and about 40 in the store..
The category you put in is not bad.. I know my competitors would get sales in that category.. For me, it was a wild card.. I never could seem to pull the sales there like my competitors..
So, it may or may not be good.. Sorry, again, same thing as the first auction..
What I meant by diversity was most of the power is in the TV categories.. I would leave this one here for now.. Who knows, could be killer if no one is there..
But, I think 75% of them should alteast go in a "Consumer Electronics" type category..
Just make sure it is something like "Consumer Electronics>TV>" something..
The idea is just to be in the category the others are not in..
For instance, looking at the categories they are currently in per your competitors, I would say this one I would avoid for now:
Why? Because it does not have the power of the Consumer Electronics>Television.. And yet, it has more in it than the "Consumer Electronics> Television..
The Consumer Electronics> Television is the most powerfull..
So you should look at it like, HALF THE POWER is in Consumer Elec> Television.. And 20% in Electronics> DVD & Home Theater..
And then 30% in other categories..
There is some strengh in the PC categories like PC>Monitor.. But you have to use a PC Monitor for the image and change the wording here and there to say "monitor" instead of "TV"..
I used to sell a lot there.. And I am guessing few sellers are there.. I would put a few in there..
Also, I would put some in Consumer Elec>Televisions, but just maybe be clever with the sub category after that, so as to be where the others are not..
YES, complex, but I think the above gives you a peak in how I think on this stuff..
