Six Tips For Selling Your Music on eBay
by Georgina Pierce

Believe it or not, you don’t have to be U2 or Coldplay to sell music CDs on eBay. Independent musicians can get their CDs sold on eBay, but it does take some strategy. Here are a few simple tips for success.

1. Set a low price.

Bear in mind that you’re competing with other sellers who are offering used or new CD’s from famous artists at low prices.

2. Be careful when using the names of other bands.
Some people get around this by using the names of similar, better-known artists in their titles. You’ll need to be careful when doing this, however, as eBay’s keyword spamming policy doesn’t permit buyers to use words that are not related to the product in a listing.

3. Include a picture.

Buyers perceive higher value when sellers include a picture. Upload your album’s cover art or a picture of your CD.

4. Feedback is important.

Always let the customer leave you feedback before you leave yours.

5. Offer a money-back guarantee.

Reassure buyers that there’s no risk to buying-they won’t have wasted their money if they don’t like your CD.

6. Keep in touch with that list.
One of the best things about eBay is that it’s a great way to collect a list of email addresses for people you can market to.

eBay can be a good place to get your CD’s into the hands of buyers. Follow these tips, and you may be able to build your fan base over time-and possibly make some money.
