YARD SALE BLUNDERS TO AVOID
Yard sales are a great way to generate extra income while cleaning up your space. After selling everything, companies made many sales and became experts in preparation and destruction. The pricing of items in the yard sale is probably one of the most important aspects of the yard sale. Your pricing strategy can determine how successful and profitable your yard sale will be.
For a successful yard sale, make sure your goods are reasonably priced so they can be sold quickly. If your product is brand new or in good condition, you can try selling it online and not through the yard. However, there are some successful selling techniques and some things you need to avoid, mainly these yard sales mistakes.
Lack of Advertising
If you want a lot of people to show up, you have to double your efforts to achieve this. Tell your friends and post signs in nearby communities, but don't stop there. Also use the websites and application, such as yardhopping.com to promote your yard sale.
People who "sometimes" visit yard sales are very keen to buy, they may already know the market price of the product. So instead of maintaining a parity price, it is better to keep the average price for each item to attract more and more customers.
Adding a random price at any time can cause your yard sale to fail as it is important to determine the real value of the product. Don't consider yourself a greedy seller. Some customers may already know the real value. Marking items with appropriate price tags can prevent your yard sales from being destroyed.
Lack of Money
When running a garage sales, make sure you have enough change. Even if you accept a credit card, it doesn't mean every customers have a credit card with them. Some buyers only have cash.
Choose a Date
This is the most important factor when preparing yard sales. Everyone loves the weekend yard sales! A good practice (especially if you have a lot of things) is to spread them on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or at least on Friday and Saturday. If you still have a lot of space on the last day, it's time to get a substantial discount. Don't forget to check the weather. Sunny days are best for yard sales!
Start the process
Start ordering and pricing at least 3-6 weeks before the important day (more on pricing strategies later). Now is a good time to start storing plastic bags and paper and paper newspapers - they're great for packing items for sale. You can also collect things like tables and hanging shelves to display items. A cheap and simple solution is to place a bar between two ladders to build a temporary drying rack. Don't forget to exchange chairs, safes, or wallets for cash.
Set up early and be ready to start selling
Before you start business, it is inevitable that you can arrive and shop early. If you want to prevent this situation, please set up a notice board without early sale. Or let the early birds come and sell it for less!
If you've ever shopped in a messy shop, you will find it difficult to find things. Moving a big sale is no different. Organize by dividing products into easy-to-buy categories. Place CDs, video games, DVDs and records on the same table. Place the kitchen utensils next to the dishes and put the entire interior in one place. It's also a good idea to keep children's products away from fragile items. Place large or attractive items at the end of the driveway or on the side of the road to attract passersby.
When you reach the yard to sell and put all the items for sale in the box instead of being neat and tidy. Assemble toys, assemble books, and so on. This helps your customers get what they want and buy yours. Another important point is security. When inviting people to your home, please make sure your garden sells items that customers can safely use.
Use quality old pens and notebooks to manage inventory and totals, or use a computer, tablet, or cell phone to simplify inventory.
Having an emotional attachments to the products
This may sound hard, but if you don't want to sell your products separately, it's best not to sell them at all. To make yard sales successful, you need to make sure you have a goal, and that goal is to make sure you sell everything to make money.
