Why Now Is the Best Time To Sell Your Assets Through Online Auctions
Have you been thinking about getting rid of personal or business assets but haven’t really moved forward with it?
We understand that it takes time to figure out what you want to sell and how to sell it, but after reading this article you might want to take action right away. How to sell your stuff is actually the easy part but we’ll talk about that later.
The #1 reason why you should really consider selling now is that people are spending more time online. The pandemic has kept most people at home. Although stores and malls are now open, more people are shopping online. According to this article, e-commerce in the U.S. has jumped more than 30% this year. Many retail stores have closed permanently and consumer shopping behaviors have changed.
Another article on Oberlo outlines online shopping statistics that are noteworthy. It states that 62% of online shoppers shop at least once per month. Of those people, 26% of them shop online once per week.
Sell to the World
In one of our past posts we shared a few reasons to sell through online auctions. What’s worth repeating is that as a seller you have access to a worldwide marketplace. Virtually anyone from anywhere is a potential customer. With billions of people having access to the Internet, you’re not limited to who you can sell to. Have an obscure item that only 1,000 people may be interested in? Those people can now find what you have to offer from a simple web search.
When you sell via online auctions, there is some work involved if you decide to do everything yourself. Fortunately, there are auction houses that specialize in online auctions that you can hire to do everything for you. It’s just a matter of finding a company that you can trust to do professional work while maximizing your net returns.
