Putting your CD collection up for sale on Murfie is fun, but actually selling your collection is even more fun! And promoting your personal shop using Facebook, Twitter and Craigslist is a great way to do just that.
If Facebook is your forte, all you have to do is locate your shop URL on your profile page and then include that URL in any statuses you post about your collection.
If Twitter is more your cup of tea, again simply find your shop URL on your profile page and include it in any subsequent tweets you make about the albums you’re selling.
Craigslist is another fantastic way to promote your personal shop, especially because posting an ad to Craigslist doesn’t cost a cent.
To set up your shop, go to http://www.craigslist.org/about/sites. Then, select the city in which you want your ad to be posted. Keep in mind that you can only post in one city.
Next, you’ll want to click “post to classifieds,” which is in the upper left corner of Craigslist’s homepage. You’ll then want to choose the “for sale” option for your posting type, and the “cds/dvds/vhs” option for your posting category.
After you’ve completed the set up, fill out the posting form with a unique title and description. Be sure to include your shop’s URL in the description, as well as what music you’re selling.
Once you’ve submitted your post, you’ll be sent an email with a link that allows you to make any last minute changes to your posting, if needed. Craigslist also allows you to repost your ad every 48 hours.
With the right mix of promotion and quality albums for sale, you’ll have a recipe for success, and some money in the bank!
