Griff talked about the impact of Tuesday’s 2015 Spring Seller Update. He also commented on a seller from whom he received email who waits for free listing promotions to list items in their store. Paul, Sarasota FL (wisebuyoutlet.c0m), thinks that the fee for scheduled listings should be eliminated. Denise, Laguna Woods CA (velvetmoxie), sells secondhand items, some of which are new with price tags, and wants to know how the new mandate for product identifiers will affect her.
Cindy, San Diego CA (pattycyn), asked how she should type in product identifiers when she adds them to item specifics. Judy, Salem IN (judybsa), wrote in about the overwhelming negativity on the eBay boards with regard to the Spring Seller Update and told us 4 positive things she plans to do to make the new changes work for her. Edie, Santa Monica CA (dress_to_suit), also plans to adapt to the changes.
This is especially for Facebook group members and the admins who love them. If there are negativity and/or discord within the group, who is responsible? I believe that an effective group administrator can ensure his or her Facebook page contains only good and useful content delivered with a friendly and welcoming tone. Debate is good; diverse opinions are good; however, these can be expressed in positive and respectful ways. Before you post, ask yourself: Is it true? Is it kind? Would you want it said about you? Would you want your “competition” to say these things about you on their group page? Would you say it to their face? As a group administrator, if you are allowing or indeed getting involved in even subtle put-downs of your competitors, people are noticing. It doesn’t look pretty. Man/woman up! Become the person you want to be, and improve your character. It is not too late.
