    Grab Hold of an Increase in Online Shoppers in January


    ĎBlack Fridayí in the United States is known around the world as a time when millions upon millions of shoppers in the U.S. flock to retail stores off and online like eBid hoping to snag some incredible deals. Black Friday is right after Thanksgiving, but the entire weekend is now almost like a holiday. While itís a tremendous opportunity for retailers, another major boom is often overlooked, and thatís January.

    Traditionally, January used to be ho-hum


    For traditional retailers, January used to be a downtime of the year. Most people returned to work and had already finished with exchanges and post holiday purchases.

    However, thanks to gift cards and other factors, January is becoming known as a boon to online retailers and independent sellers, though itís easy to overlook.

    According to Google, the worldís leading search engine, there are 22% more shoppers going online and looking for retailers through this search engine than during October, the leading edge of the holiday shopping season.

    While most retailers benefit from this surge in online shopping, the Home & Garden industries show the greatest jump, up 39% over October numbers.

    How to make this work for you


    When youíre selling items online, the time of the year you post them for sale through auction sites will have an impact on your prospective audience. Itís certainly easy to assume January is a time to relax, clean up the house, and even get organized for the new year, but stats show this is the time when you want to make sure your items are listed and accessible to the highest number of prospective customers.

    eBid is one of the leading auction sites around the world. That means when you list items with eBid and follow simple guidelines, your items could be uploaded and listed automatically to Google Shopping.

    Just imagine how many more people will have access to your items and see your listings, especially during January.

    So, while you may have been taking it easy for the months of January and February in the past, catching up on necessary chores around the house or office because you assumed these were the two slowest months of the year, think again.

    Itís a ripe opportunity for you to capitalize on millions of people still hungry for great deals. In order to get your eBid listing uploaded to Google Shopping, you need to have an auction with at least 3 days remaining and the BuyNow feature available; or an auction with On First Bid and BuyNow available; or Fixed Price with at least 3 days remaining; or Fixed Price with Run Until Sold selected.

    Itís not that tough to take advantage of all Google Shopping and eBid have to offer, and January could help you launch your business into another stratosphere!
