Make Use of Templates
If you want to make your listing process more efficient and more organize, then making use of templates would be your best bet. This would allow you to have designated and systematic presets for your products, reducing the time spent writing out their descriptions and specifics.
For example, say you sell men’s clothing. You can set templates for pants, shirts, coats, and even button-downs, which would decrease the amount of text that needs to be inputted. Having these in place mean that you would only change the item’s measurements, photos, and price when you start listing them on eBay. If your products are vastly similar to each other or are in the same category, then you might not even have to change its measurements and weights!
Hire Somebody to Help
If you’re an at-home eBay seller, then there’s a huge chance that you’re a one-man show. You’re most probably responsible for every single part of their business operations; from photographing to post-processing, and from uploading the items to writing your product descriptions – all these tasks are your burden and your burden alone.
As your store gets bigger, though, you may find the law of diminishing returns slowly going into effect. There’s only so much that you can do in a day and this decreases even further as your product lines expand. Without a doubt, this would hinder your store’s further growth – after all, your store’s operations are limited by what you can do.
Because of this, you might want to start looking into hiring help. Even a part-time administrative assistant tasked with responding to inquiries and customer service requests would free up a huge chunk of time in your day, allowing you to focus on sourcing your products or listing them on your store.
More importantly, having another person manage some facets of your business operations would help give you a much faster listing process since you’re no longer hampered by the need to answer messages and emails sent by your customers.
