Everyone knows that you can sell items online, but they never understand exactly how to go about the process. The first thing you need to do is determine which items you will be selling and for how much. Remember, people go online to get bargains, so they will not be paying full price for the items you want to sell. Think of selling online as being similar to a garage sale, items that sell for pennies on the dollar will go faster than items that are closer to retail. The first thing you need to do is show your clients what the item is and how it looks. This is normally accomplished by taking a photograph of the item and posting it to an online site. This is where the photo box comes into play.
Why is the Photo Box so important to online selling
One of the first things you have to do when you are selling something online is to get the buyers attention. The easiest way to do this is to have a stunning photo of the item that you are selling. This means, no water stains in the background, no blotches on the carpet and no other object behind the one you are trying to sell. This can be difficult when taking the photos at home because there are so many things that can be a distraction in your picture. Using a photo box, as the one pictured above, removes all of the background distractions and it can make your object the center of attention.
You do want to make sure that you use the appropriate background color in your photo. As you can see, this photo box comes with four different colors for your backdrop, red, blue, white and black. You should use the color that will highlight your item without clashing with the current color. For instance, you should never take a photo of a bright orange teddy bear with the red background because the clashing colors will be off-putting for your clients.
