eSnipe Runs Best Seller Tip Contest

eSnipe.com launched a "best seller tip" contest with a free iPod as the price. A brief mention in their popular [Six Seconds] newsletter resulted in an avalanche of tips, ranging from straightforward to cleverness bordering on psychological warfare.

 
PRLog - Jan. 25, 2013 - Bellevue, WA- Though known as an auction sniping specialist, eSnipe.com has launched a contest for the best eBay selling tip after learning that 30% of its customers would like to learn how to start an eBay business. The prize is a vintage, New In Box iPod Shuffle-a modest prize that has nonetheless triggered massive response.

Contest for Free iPod Ends January 31
The contest is open only to registered eSnipe users, but registration is free and no purchase is required. The prize will be awarded to the seller tip deemed by eSnipe staff to be most helpful.

The contest's home page is a survey:

Free iPod Shuffle Generates Loads of Ingenious Replies
Some of the more interesting tips:

• Low or no reserve bids consistently get better prices than high reserve bids

• One extremely accomplished seller jettisoned complicated disclaimers and legal notices, opting instead for quick and accommodating customer response. Results: 2900 feedback with a 100% positive rating

• Use eSnipe to buy when other many buyers are otherwise engaged or out of money i.e. January & February, or summer vactaion months

The most compelling tips will be revealed at a later date.

CEO "Bowled Over" By Response to Contest Announcement, But "Plenty of Opportunity to Win""I was bowled over by the variety, ingenuity, and detail of the responses," says an amazed Tom Campbell, CEO of eSnipe. "A few of them verge on psy ops," he quipped. "Some of them are very specific, clever ways to maximize profits and seem to employ fairly sophisticated game theory."

About eSnipe, Inc. eSnipe places bids for eBay users during the last few seconds of the auction, a practice called "sniping" in online auction parlance. eSnipe launched in 1999 as one of the early eBay sniper services run on high-speed dedicated servers. eSnipe's multiple servers placed over $287.6 million worth of bids on eBay in 2012 alone. eSnipe CEO and former Microsoft program manager Campbell made eSnipe one of the first pay sites on the Internet in June, 2001. To keep merchant account charges low he was forced to devise the first profitable micropayment system on the web. It has been in unbroken operation since--and profitable longer than Amazon.com.
