TIPS FOR A BETTER AD
Very important: Regularly UPDATE your current list...
Presenting your machine or machines for sale in the best of conditions can make the difference between a quick sale and a long on-market time. Below are a few tips you may find worthwhile considering to produce a better machine ad and to get better value for your advertising.
Offer only machines that you control or only owned machines. Don't lose customer time.
Regularly remove sold machines and add fresh offers.
Reply to machine advertisement enquiries
Reply your machine advertisement enquiries as promptly as you can. This will communicate that you are serious about the sale of your machine . Buying a machine involves a considerable amount of money and a buyer likes to be reassured that you can be trusted. Your first impression will set the tone.
Photos of your machine
Photograph your machine in good light conditions as this will produce the best results. Zoom in on details that are outstanding features of your machine . If using photo processing software, photos can be enhanced before upload.
At least one image is required for each Machine.
Each image must be of the Machine - it can be a similar image (example)
You should use images that:
Are easy to understand and show the whole machine
Have a resolution of 800 x 600 or higher
Are in the square format
Show the machine 4 sides and up close
Capture the machine in real situations
When you set up your machine ad, Pressdepo online photo processing function will resize your photo(s) to the display size for the website - 800 x 600 px. The photo(s) for upload must be of .jpg extension. Use your photo processing software to change to this file format if necessary. A file size of approx. 200kb will generally produce a good quality photo and ensure fast upload for your machine advertisement. Be aware that unless you have a high speed Internet connection, a data heavy image may take a while to upload and is prone to transmission disruption, resulting in a broken image being uploaded.
Add video if possible. This will help to sell the machine.
Describing your machine
When selling a machine , the description box should present a general overview of your machine.
Include a price - Some people believe that asking buyers to "Request for Price" will increase response and allow them an opportunity to personally sell their machines. This is not true. In fact, online buyers will usually bypass a machine with no price in favor of a dealer who includes a price.
Your contact details
Take care that your details are correct, proof read for errors when your machine ad is online and correct any typos and spelling mistakes. Remember, you can access your machine ad as often as you like to make changes. Make it easy for the enquirer to contact you. Your email address will be used for the enquiry from the website, and in addition you may want to give a telephone number. You ca edit your contact details fro Admin > Company Settings

Don't be shy about wanted guarantees that you are not being cheated when it comes to the point of sale and money changing hand for the goods.
Beware of scam emails - please use common sense and caution.
