Tips for listing your items

There are some important things to consider when listing your items on gorage.com.

Item Title

When creating your item listing, you'll want the item title to be as descriptive but brief as possible. When you can, include the manufacturer name, model or style. This will be useful when potential buyers come to the gorage.com website and are searching for items. In addition, it will improve the visibility of your items on the search engines.

Let's say you are selling a camera. If you create an item listing with a title of "Camera" then you don't give potential buyers enough information about your particular item. If your item title is something like "Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera" you are telling a potential buyer what specific camera it is you are selling, not to mention you are making it easier for someone looking for that specific brand or model to find.

Item Description

This is another area where you want to be as brief, yet descriptive as possible. This is the perfect area to list the distinguishing features of your items and to include any additional information about your particular items for sale.

We are working on allowing longer item descriptions. This will give you the ability to be more descriptive and put any special instructions (such as pick up only...etc.). We'll let you know when we have upgraded that function.
