With Campus North closing its doors at the end of the Year and mine and Laura's schedule becoming increasingly busy we have been discussing the Future of 'Ecommerce North East' and reluctantly feel that July will be the last one that that we will be Hosting :( However if any brave sole feels like carrying the torch please let us know! To go out with a bang Both Laura and I have decided to present about how to make the ultimate Listing on Both Amazon and eBay 18:00 - Informal introductions 18:15 1st Speaker Alex Goodacre - How to massively increase your listing conversion rate using hypnotic copywriting.’ Creating a listing is essentially a 2 part process. First it is essential to do your keyword research to ensure you include and so rank for all your keyword searches. This part is the listing SEO and is tricky. Next perhaps even trickier still is creating compelling text that instantly justifies why your ideal profiled customer should buy from YOU and only YOU by use of ‘hypnotic feature anchor’s, NLP and customer profiling. Stop focusing on just features and benefits, and use transformational language to make the customer believe you’re their best hope.’ 18:45 2nd Speaker - Laura Mathieson - Selling on eBay UK Ltd Being an eBay consultant Laura is incredibly knowledgeable on what makes a perfect listing. Here she will shower us with gold on what it really take to create a number 1 seller on eBay. 19:15 - Q and A session 19:30 - Last drinks! As always we will be heading to Lady Grey's after for networking and to sadly reminisce about the previous years of ECNE. However as we have said we really would LOVE someone else to take over the meetup so please let us know!
