Social media may be robbing you of your profits. Seriously, how much time do you spend checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.? You probably click on them without even thinking.
Try this: remove all social media links from your desktop, task bar and bookmarks toolbar. You’ve made it too easy for these sites to steal your time, which is money. The latest research shows we go to them almost subconsciously, just to see what’s going on. It’s your gateway drug, eating away at your bottom line.
Try checking social media only twice a day — for example, once at lunchtime and once during your afternoon break — and set an alarm. It’s easy to get sucked in.

Open phones, Contact Us email, and more: Our guest from the previous segment, Social Media Manager Audrey Tracy from Bay for Business (known on eBay as audreyjojojo) stayed on with Griff in the studio to take questions. Pat, Melbourne FL (purrfree), asked why relisted items don’t keep the same item number so their links would stay the same on Pinterest. Alan, Prudenville MI (aj_vintagevariety), is getting a weird interstitial page when he tries to submit a listing.
Lee offered to do a listing challenge with Audrey. Forrest, Lakewood WA (hulkhauler1) is still having challenges with Promotions Manager; he seems to have it confused with Promoted Listings. Paul, Sarasota FL (wisebuyoutlet.c0m), was held over until the next segment, at which point his call failed. Mark, GA, thanked Griff and Lee for his listing dish, then explained his inventory management and listing systems. Paul, Sarasota FL (wisebuyoutlet.c0m) called back; he is listing a very large item and is afraid of a SNAD case for Item Not As Described.
