Featured Bonanzle Seller - Sofyblu2

Where did you sell before you started selling on Bonanzle? How did you find out about Bonanzle?

Bonanzle seller Sofyblu2 was a Power Seller on Ebay for some years. As the “handwriting” showed on the wall in the last 1 1/2 yrs they started looking around at alternatives. None of them grabbed them in the least. Then they saw Bonanzle mentioned in an Auctiva article sometime around June/July. On Aug 27th , Sofyblu2 opened their Bonanzle booth #1627!

What has your experience on Bonanzle been like?

The ride from the beginning was fun and nutz at times always something new changing or being tweaked. When we were “small” the “quarrels” LOL then were the best ways and means to promote Bonanzle. Thru September/October it was a push to get new sellers. October/November it was the push to get new customers. The oldies here, we would scan anything and everything looking for new places to drop the Bonanzle name. Then as a means (I believe) of not overly repeating ourselves the BAC was formed to hit the dirt with a new assignment each week to promote the site.

How many sales has Sofyblu2 made on Bonanzle?

Since Aug. we have sold 50 items. Now many of the “high” sellers seem to have less expensive items therefore their turnover is much faster. Our stuff is on the higher end but not the highest LOL Probably 3/4’s of those sales were to “outsiders” and they were for multiple items, many in the hundreds of dollars. Currently we are a bit stalled as sofyblu2 desperately needs more inventory added but we are trying to finish up sofy’s choice.

We are all looking for good marketing advice. What’s the best tip or trick you can share with us?

The best advice…mmmm.. google feed and google checkout. They help to boost your ranking in the google pages as well as the “master list” of places to promote.

Thank you for featuring one of the premier sellers on Bonanzle. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mary and Russ and have purchased from them, as well. They have a quality business, are very knowledgeable about their product, and you can always be sure of receiving the very best of everything from sofyblu2 and sofy'schoice.
