What To Do Once You Receive an eBay Consignment Lead

Once you have received a lead for your consignment service it is important to quickly establish contact with the seller who is seeking your eBay consignment services. The sooner you establish contact with the seller the better it reflects on your service. Successful ebay consignment businesses recommend:
1) Follow up with sellers as soon as possible after receiving a request for your service. Selling requests become stale within 48 to 72 hours. After 72 hours the chances of converting them into business decrease drastically.

2) Send an email introducing your service to all sellers that have requested your service. Such an email serves the purpose of letting the seller know that you have received their selling request. And it allows you to tell the seller how to contact you directly. Here is an example email that you can adapt to your business.

3) Do not just send an email to the seller who requested your eBay consignment services. Also try to calling them on the phone. Talking to a seller on the phone is a great way to get questions out of the way quickly and to turn a request for your eBay consignment services into actual business for you.

4) Introduce yourself as an eBay selling expert to the seller. Let your sellers know that you received their eBay selling request that they submitted though SellingRequest.com.

Following these steps should increase the number of eBay selling requests that turn into actual business for you.
