Here is a great example of what to do for a for sale ad and at the end what not to do.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...a-max-pro.html


Clear description,price and pictures. Looks good then follow up with a sold bump at the end when sold instead of editing first post. Not picking on op just wondering if the 90/90 or pay for elite is working....I know some people are complaining because their stuff gets deleted but if done right that doesn't happen.

I am gonna throw a lil bitching here...
How damn hard it is to post a post pictures in your sales thread?
I am not feeling confident at all when I am browsing a sale thread without no pictures...

If you make an offer with a promise to pay follow through.

1. Cleanliness is next to godliness lol. CLEAN YOUR STUFF BEFORE YOU TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR STUFF!!! Do you really expect to sell something covered in mud and dirt? That is a complete turn off of purchase for me. All that tells me is that you don't care about your item at all, you probably beat the crap out of it, and have alot of issues with it so you just want to get it off of your hands.

2. POST PICTURES. Do you know how annoying it is to click on a thread only to be greeted by no pics? That just shows laziness, again a complete purchase turn off. "I dont know how to post pics here, Ill text or email you pics". That phrase just screams i stole pics from somebody else and i have a better chance of not getting caught if i dont post them for everybody to see.

3. "I got to get this gone", "I need this outta here" and whatever other meth addict phrases you say. That just sounds like your a crack head who just stole something and looking to fence it. It does not make me want to buy.

4. ALUMINUM PARTS DOES NOT INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR RC $1000. You can put all the bling you want on a tmaxx, but at the end of the day its still just a tmaxx. Its your money pit, don't bling it out if you dont plan on keeping it because you will never recoup all that money.

5. 400 + shipping + paypal fees. Really? Paypal fees? Dude YOUR SELLING AN ITEM, THEREFOR THEY ARE YOUR SELLER FEES. Nobody asked YOU to sell YOUR item. YOU made a conscious decision to sell something, YOU take the hit. As soon as I see + paypal fees, thats my que to exit thread immediately.

6. Feller thread. What the heck is a feller thread. Every thread is a feller thread. If you dont get the price you want, your not going to sell. Isn't every thread like that?

If you follow this guide your item will sell.

I want to hear what anybody else has to add to the list.
what is left to cover i think you prtty much well said it all there.

lol I guess I look for some gems at times if the vehicle is dirty if the person has great feedback, can see an effective discount due to that dirt.

As for "feller" sale listings, haven't seen those

That's how I got an MBX7T for 120$. Looked like hell. Cleaned it up, replaced a couple of plastics and it looks as good as new. Lots of new folks just see dirt. It see dollar signs.

An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
