    Promoting ebid in force, or en masse!

    That is a long way off. I think there are only about 3 or 4 of us who regularly use Flickr as a tool for spreading the ebid word.

    The fact that no-one could be bothered to answer this except you, books, speaks volumes.

    They had already contacted me via Flikr.

    If anyone wants to link up with me my photostream is http://www.flickr.com/photos/sellingonebid/ . Growing every day.

    If anyone wants me to add photos of sold items to their group just let me know where and how many. I don't want to flood out other sellers material.

    If you added 4 or 5 at a time, that would be great, kedo.

    I especially like the make 19th Octobre buy it on ebid day. Be nice if that took off. It will only take off though with exposure and word of mouth.

    The key to Flickr is to get your account photostream noticed, and through your actions get other ebid users' accounts noticed.

    You do this by:

    • adding your photos to groups. It is important you add your photos to both ebid and non-ebid, (but relevant) related groups.
    • Leave comments on other peoples photos to get your account noticed.
    • Leave comments on ebid users photos, to get their images a higher rank in the Flickr search engine.
    • Favourite other peoples photos to get your account noticed.
    • Favourite ebid users photos, to get their images a higher rank in the Flickr search engine.
    • Make sure you add people as contacts, chances are they will reciprocate, which helps expose them to ebid.
    • If you can add your normal photos, as well as ebid related stuff, this will attract people who are interested in the subject matter
    • Make sure you tag/keyword your photos, otherwise no-one is going to find them (two important tags being ebid and ebid.net).
    • When you join a group make sure you contribute to the discussions and add new questions/threads., especially our own groups


    I know that all might sound long winded, it is not. If you find it is, just do each step one day at a time.

    All account activity helps ebid to be seen. Browsing Flickr is also quite enjoyable if you are interested in photography, or you find a group with an interest you share.

    EDIT

    Just been over there and added some pictures to the group.

    Have also added a new question to the discussion:

    Let us know what you have bought on ebid and how was the experience?

    Actually Books there's more potential with Flikr than perhaps you realise. Thanks for bringing it to our attention on these forums!

    That is a rather good photostream you have there.

    Is it purely stuff you have sold, or do you also put pictures of stuff you are selling?

    Thanks Books.

    It's strictly items that I've sold. Keep in mind that it is 'under construction'. There will be some fairly extensive text with each photo giving details of what the item is, what it sold for etc. along with links to my blog.

    Flikr is an elegant solution for me. It will allow me to recycle my pictures to, hopefully, create a useful resource for collectors. At the same time it should provide me with some traffic to my blog and then here.
