Getting your booth up and running on Bonanza is a breeze, but settling on an item title might have you stumped. After all, you want your item title to be descriptive enough to inform shoppers what you’re selling, but intriguing enough to tempt shoppers into clicking your item. What’s more, other sites that might advertise your items, like Google Shopping, have specific guidelines for item titles and won’t accept items that don’t comply.

There are many reasons people choose to sell products online. Some people need to get rid of clutter around the house, while others enjoy the flexible schedule and entrepreneurial spirit that comes with being your own boss. Whatever the reason may be, all online sellers have one goal in common: to make money.
That being said, it can be frustrating to take the time getting or making products, listing them online, and feel like you're waiting around to make a sale. But you might be unknowingly turning off shoppers with the price of your item. Everyone knows that if you price too high, buyers might not be able to afford your item. But on the other hand, pricing...read the full article

So you're new to Bonanza, and hoping to make your first sales sooner rather than later? Then let's agree on one thing: The key to selling, is to sell. In other words, as Wayne Gretzky put it, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." But if you're like most people, self-promotion can make you a bit uncomfortable. We felt the same way - our parents taught us "don't toot your own horn" - until this burst of insight: People want what you're selling... but they can't buy it if they don't know about it.
When you put it like that, promoting your merchandise isn't just good business. It's an important way to connect people to the products they want and need. We've compiled this list of the most common and accessible...read the full article

Online sellers are hard-working and highly motivated entrepreneurs who are constantly looking for ways to better their businesses. A choice that every online seller makes is how to sell their items: should they use an online marketplace like Bonanza, Etsy, or Amazon?

On one hand, if you choose to sell on a marketplace, the potential traffic for your items is immense, but there are limited branding options. However, if you choose to sell on your own website, you get control over your brand and customers, but you...read the full article

When you're building a business online, there are at least three roadblocks you’ll need to get through...read the full article
