Here are some Labor Day selling tips from Audrey Tracy in the eBay for Business blog:
Set your best discounts. Labor Day shoppers expect great deals, so if you are an eBay Stores subscriber, use Promotions Manager to create compelling offers.
Back to School shoppers are still shopping. Labor Day weekend closes out the Back to School season, so keep your school-themed promotions and deals running through the entire weekend.
Buyers are looking towards Fall. Start listing items that typically do well in the cooler months, such as sweaters, boots and outerwear. In addition, think about the items people buy when they plan to spend more time indoors, like video games, TVs, etc.
Optimize for mobile. This applies to all holidays, and to selling on eBay in general, but it might be especially helpful for moms and dads scrambling to get everything done for Back to School and idle shoppers kicking back at those end-of-summer BBQs. We—re also rapidly approaching the point where more than 50% of people are shopping on mobile devices, so make sure your listings are optimized.
As you can see, this is a seller—s dream. It—s just a matter of serving up the right merchandise at the right time!
