Photos sell things! No one wants to buy something sight un-seen or have to drive just to look at something. So grab a camera, or if you have to borrow one, or even use your cell phone, and snap at least one good clear photo of your item.
Tips for a good photo:
- Photos taken outside are always great as the natural light provides the best lighting. Consider this even with indoor items – if you can take a chair, artwork or desk outside, it could be worth the effort to get a nice photo.
- If your item has a flaw, take a second photo showing just the flaw. Be upfront and note the issue – buyers will appreciate it!
- Take advantage of the FREE photo option for everything! Even if you are selling a $15 pair of shoes, buyers want to see the condition, not just read “good condition”.
- If taking photos indoors, open the blinds or curtains to allow natural light to help the photo. Set the camera to AUTO focus and make sure the flash option is on in case it is needed.
Happy Selling – and happy photographing!!
