Buyer's Want Fast n' Free Delivery!
Today's Buyers want everything yesterday. Fast downloads on Mobile Devices and Fast n' Free Delivery. To compete in this Holiday Season, this is a "must-have"..... if you expect to earn a minimum of $50 - $150 per day in the next 2 months.
Use only suppliers proven to deliver within 2 Business Days.
Buyer's Want a Deal!
Buyers interrupt a deal in many different ways. If the quality of the product satisfies their desires and the price is moderately higher (in the ballpark) most will consider Fast n Free Delivery as a deal. In other words, the emotional desire for fast n' free delivery overcomes the price to purchase. You'll be shocked to learn how many buyers do not purchase based on price alone. Create a "Shipping Discount" Promotion for "Fast n' Free" or "Free Expedited Delivery" as a special offer they can't resist.
Create a Sense of Urgency!
You've seen Sale Advertisements in Retail Stores with Good until Limited Quantities Sold creating a "sense of urgency" to purchase now, especially when your listing is set to a quantity of One (1), triggering a "sense of scarcity" to take action now!

Select only quality products from quality suppliers, then build up the product's quality in detailed features so Buyers can't miss it in Item Specifics. This will serve as a mini-ad page for Mobile Shoppers, creating just enough interest to read your listing description.
