Why It’s a Good Idea to Start Your Own Website

By Adam  |  6 Oct 2015 10:00:00

It really surprises me to see how many eBay sellers there are who don't yet have their own websites. Having a website is hugely beneficial, and it's most likely that if these eBay sellers had one, their business would benefit greatly and they'd see a real increase in sales. Are you an eBay user who does not have their own site? If so, why is that? I think, for a lot of people, the reason they don't have websites is that they think of it as some huge task which will cost them huge sums of money and enormous amounts of their time. With Sellr, neither of these things are true.


Firstly, let's talk about the cost. If you really don't have much of a budget, you could use our free package "Sellr FREE" and gain instant access to our website templates, which you can then customise to your heart's content. If you put a day of hard work into it, you may well have it finished before bed. So it's no huge loss of time, either! Of course, the free package isn't quite as comprehensive as others, but it still provides you with the essential tools for content and social media marketing, while also allowing you to list up to twenty-five different items and to offer bundles and promotions. That's a pretty good deal!


On the other hand, there're also bigger packages. If you spend £199.99 on the annual "Sellr Pro" package then we'll build you your very own custom designed eCommerce website. This will make your website look just that little bit more unique and professional than anything you'd be able to produce yourself in the cheaper packages. You're going to be hard-pressed to find another business offering custom websites for a price anywhere near as good as that. This package will also give you the ability to list an unlimited number of items, to do email marketing and a whole host of other things (full list of features).


But what are the benefits of having your own website? Well, with Sellr the fact that it comes with all of those marketing tools will mean that you're in the perfect position to reach new people and to keep existing customers coming back. You also look a lot more professional if you're selling from your own website, rather than just over eBay and people are more likely to buy from someone they think is reliable and professional. Anybody can use eBay, but only a serious business person like you will have a website. Plus, with Sellr you can simultaneously sell items over eBay and your own website, so you don't even have to leave eBay, that's not to mention that it can all be managed from one place! Getting your own website will give you something to link to from your eBay profile, making you a more credible seller and generally doing a lot to help boost sales. Of course, a large number of people will find you through your website as well, once you have it.


So I hope that's persuaded you that getting a website is what's right for you! It's a wise move for anybody who does a lot of selling on eBay, or indeed, anybody who's got a bit of an entrepreneurial streak in them. So if that all sounds good, why not sign up to Sellr right now?
