Buying And Selling Of Furnitures Online Guide
The internet gives way for people to do business and consumers to find products easily and cost effective. If you are a merchant or consumer, these tips will help guide you in this wide field of internet economy.
Selling Furnitures Online
A low cost way to sell furniture online is to write a descriptive ad and place them in the online classifieds. Online advertising is becoming more popular around the world. Individuals are taking advantage of this low cost advertising. There are several online websites that are available for selling used furniture. Many of these websites allow you to place free ads, therefore allowing you to expand your advertising to any length.
Finding free and low cost advertising
The first thing to do is type the words “classified ads” in the search engine of your choice and it will give you an unlimited supply of classified ad websites. Most of these websites will let you place free ads. Click on the first website and look for a link that says “post an ad” or “place an ad”. They are usually located at the top of the page. Click the “post an ad” link and sign up for an account. It is free and usually only takes a couple of minutes.
This sign in process is so you will be able to receive inquiries from someone about your ad. It also helps to keep track of all your ads, if you have more than one ad posted. Some of these classified ad websites will provide a contact form through their site. This is a plus when using their site, because it will not display your email address in your ad. This feature helps protect your email from spammers and eliminates other unnecessary emails.
Correct Ad Placement
After signing in you are now ready to post your ad. Look for the category that list “furniture for sale” or “home furnishings”. Always place your ad in the correct category. People who are looking for furniture will look through the furniture ads, not the automobile ads. You may have to click on the link “Items for sale” or “Household items” to find the correct ad placement category. Most of the advertising websites that sell furniture online have different ad navigation categories and links. You will have to search each website for the proper categories to place your ad. This is easily done by clicking the link that is comparable to the item you are selling. On some classified ad websites, you may have to click on the “Browse ads” or “Search listings” link, in order to find the category that contains ads with furniture items.
Write your ad
You are now ready to write your ad. You should begin with the furniture type such as a “Sofa” or “Rocking recliner”. If you know the name of the manufacturer, then begin your ad with it, such as “Lane Recliner” or “Broyhill Sofa and Love seat”. Next you should describe the type of upholstery, such as Leather or Cloth. Include the color of the furniture or if it has a flower print, you should describe all the colors. The color description will help a person of interest know, if the furniture will match their room or other furniture. It is necessary to include any attachments or other enhancements such as pillows or built in recliners. Give the length, width, and height of the furniture if necessary. I also recommend including a picture in the ad, if it is allowed. Most of the free and low cost classified advertisers will allow you to post a picture of your furniture. This will definitely help you sell furniture online and increase your ad response.
Finish your ad by describing the condition of the furniture and your contact information. After finishing your ad, I recommend copying the ad and pasting it in notepad. Doing this will keep you from having to rewrite your ad, every time you submit it on a new site. You are now ready to submit your classified ad to as many online classified ad websites that are available. As you now know, finding them is easy.
Buying Furnitures Online
Where we live it’s in a town but not on a road. Difficult to explain to delivery companies or online retailers when ordering furniture online, but self-explanatory if you could see where we live.
It’s what is known as a medieval quarter. Sounds all twee and old fashioned but in essence it’s a collection of small terraced cottages on a hill, with fruit trees and small green spaces, and a series of pathways connecting them.
The cottages probably aren’t that old, maybe two hundred years at the most, but they’re probably built on the sites of older dwellings, and still not new enough for anybody then to have considered the needs of big clunky vans delivering furniture that has been ordered via the web.
We live as Sherpas, us folk round here. Driving as near we can to the terraces, then off loading our goods and lugging them up the pathways. I explained on the telephone after going online and finding some new furniture.
The great thing about lots of furniture retail web sites is that you can look at the products but then just telephone them to order, so as to explain any delivery notes.
I know from previous experience that delivery drivers have driven around in circles round the entire part of town that contains these terraced pathways, their SatNavs showing the delivery address but mysteriously guiding them round and round.
My next concern was to how we were actually going to get the three piece suit inside the cottage. I knew we could maneuver the sofa along the pathway, including a tricky tight corner.
I’d taken measurements of the corner; it was actually a three way junction, with two paths wide and one narrow. The narrow one led to our terrace, but by executing a three point turn including a high lift over a hedge to cut the corner, and then back up the narrow path, the sofa would be safely delivered.
Yet our front door was too narrow for the sofa to go through without it getting scraped at best, stuck at worst. Accessed through the front garden the living room window was wide enough, I guessed.
When the delivery van arrived, the sofa was carefully placed in the garden, and therefore followed a contained yet heated argument within our household on how the sofa would fit in through the living room window. I argued that it would have to be tilted at an angle, others disagreed. To avoid damaging the thing we needed to agree on how it would be carried through – it would also avoid damaging us, if we decided to continue our disagreement through the lifting procedure.
