    - crop your photos
    - find better light sources
    - use every word you can as many as the titles length allows you
    - make your text bigger and more concise
    - less white space
    - no offense, you are selling rather common products with bland pics/descriptions. Rare pieces will sell themselves with just a little polish. Something run of the mill needs a little extra glitter to stand out above the other 1000 prada shirts and boss suits.

    Always put the size information on the auction title too.

    Ending in just over 2 hours - a shitload of Tom Ford ties, bow ties, Louboutin shoes for your girls, Versace scarves and towels, and a brand new with tags 2011 Zegna mainline tuxedo that is :fu: currently under $100. :fu:

    On average how many views/watchers do your listings get? This week is the first week I've done the 10 day/No reserve that you advocate and I'm curious how my numbers compare. I've definitely got more views and watchers than in the past (with the exception of the Bottega Veneta briefcase I sold twice).



    I've got a shaving strop, an Alexander Olch tie, and a Bergdorf Goodman Argyle knit all ending within the next 2 hrs. Click on link in my signature. There are also a couple of fixed price listings for Gitman Vintage shirts that I've also got listed in B&S.

    It depends - on average I get roughly 300-750 views per auction - 100-250 for a meh item, I hit 1K if its something insane. Put This On featured one of my items on their roundup once, and I had 2000 page views.

    For watchers, anywhere between 35-65 is a good average. My best ever was 194.

    I'm going to take the advice you gave to heart when I set up my next auctions regarding info and pictures; but how can I improve the initial page views? I know my stuff isn't super unique, but how do I maximize views based on the one line description? Are many of the views based on previous customers having you as a favorite?
