Empower sellers and get out of the way!
Randy Smythe's musings on the world of ecommerce, social networking, Web 2.0, Google, Amazon, Buy.com,Yahoo, Squidoo, online marketing and still probably a lot of stuff about eBay.
You guys are so cute!
Nice to see you Randy. I wonder if John has his talk on his blog? I'm always interested in hearing from him.Randy, please suggest that buy.com open a category for art. It does really well on Ebay and its a large category but artists are being gouged and hidden in Ebay faulty best match search. As long as buy.com has the traffic, art would do well.
Pat,We get traffic but based on the searches we see there isn't much demand for Art. We do have quite a selection of Art in the Home and Outdoor section.Hopfully one day we will have some demand.
Henrietta,We are kind of cute aren't we?
That's the problem Randy - Amazon does the same thing. It needs its own cateogry - just as it does on Ebay. Would you believe I'm even selling on Overstock and getting more traffic then on Ebay. Sad, but true. I hope they look into it for the future. People will buy art if its under their nose. Its incredible how uneducated the public really is when it comes to finding things on the internet.Yep the two of you can make a good team :-)
Randy - incidentally, I did well on Amazon years ago when they had an art/antiques category and they were doing auctions...but even fixed price listings would sell if properly presented to the public.
A good interview but I prefer the karaoke video :) Kelly
Kelly,I thought that ruined Steve Miller for you :)
Came to ATL and didn't drop me a line.. tsk tsk..
In the old country cute is an abbreviation for acute, a cute businessman would be a sharp one. My American dictionary tells me that cute means adorable, appealing so I would say that you are both all kinds of cute on both sides of the Pond.Howzat?
Henrietta,That is perfect!
