Photography Is Key: Throwing a dirty t-shirt or wrinkled t-shirt on a dirty wall for a photo simply won’t cut it if you’re looking to move items fast. Making your items look as attractive as possible means ensure the clothing is freshly washed & photographed against a plain background in good lighting. For clothing, you can simply put a thumbtack in a white wall & hang the item on it to photograph them in broad daylight. For lifestyle items, for example, a camera, skateboard, tripod, etc. Simply take clear pictures of all angles of the item, along with their respective accessories (i.e. plugs, etc.); also, a picture of the item in use will help inspire your potential customer i.e. if it’s a camera, take a picture of it while it’s on, accentuate some of its features; a skateboard for example, place it upside down, so your potential customer can see the tires are still intact, and so on and so forth. Again, we will be here 24/7/365 to assist you with any item you might be looking to sell.
Add a special touch to your shop: Ever heard the saying the customer is always right? While this may not always be true, the point is that you want to treat your customers like the special people that they are. Leave them with something to remember you by. For example, you can include a special note in your package to them, you could also make yourself available for questions/concerns they might have about the item, you could make special discounts available to your return customers, etc. Be creative, it’s your shop, make it pop!
Interact: Responding to comments & messages are very crucial if you want to get sales, and the best way to make sure you don’t miss them is to download the Fairdistrict app on your phone & make our site your homepage; and please, make sure to turn your notifications on so you can respond to your potential customers on time.
Keep It Real (Be Honest): Nothing will kill the vibe faster than an unhappy customer; so, to avoid any issues, make sure to describe the item and its current state as accurately as possible. If there are known faults that exist with the product, make sure it is clearly stated and described to the customer; if possible, send the customer a DM stating the fault so they can accept the conditions in writing before concluding the transaction and shipping the item to them. Make use of your bio to state your shop policies; for example, “All Sales Final… No refunds…. Contact me for any questions or concerns!!!” Say that if that is your policy. Treat others like you would like to be treated, that’s the motto at FAIRdistrict - It’s only Fair; tell it like it is, before selling it like it is - Fair Enough?
Promote Yourself: What people don’t know about, they can’t buy. So, it doesn’t matter how many instagram or facebook followers you have, put your item out there. There’s always somebody out there who needs what you don’t want anymore, but they have to know that you have it before they can buy it. So, post your items so your followers can find them, if they don’t need them, they’ll tell their other friends, etc. Never underestimate the power of “word-of-mouth”... don’t be discouraged because you don’t have a lot of friends or followers on social media. Promote your shop, people will do the rest for you, and we will help as well.
So, there you have it folks! It doesn’t matter how new or nice your item is, if you don’t put any effort into making it look nice by taking great photos or you don’t promote it, it’s likely it won’t sell, and you won’t get the chance to help make someone else’s life more exciting or get some dollars in your pocket.
So, keep this little information in your back pocket and help make your life and others more exciting with Fairdistrict. We’re almost here. We can’t wait to meet you all. Thanks for hanging in there….
