Advertising Estate Sales Is A Business Too!

Looking at and reading articles on the internet about estate sales including online newspaper articles, Google alerts, guides, etc., one can easily see that advertising estate sales through internet media publications (not just Facebook or Twitter) has become another branch off the liquidation business.

Everything has been showing up in these news and infomercial reports from what to try to score at a sale to how estate liquidators are now having to be watchful for counterfeit money.

Written paid infomercials by estate sale companies and estate sale listing websites are becoming more and more the norm. We have seen content writers and independent journalists writing about estate sales or groups of estate sales.

Choosing what aspect of an estate sale to write about, or what city to draw attention to with a group of estate sales for a weekend is challenging. Particularly if you do not usually attend estate sales or have ever participated in an estate sale.

With competition continuing to grow, so will the means of advertising the estate liquidations. Reading through look for any kind of mention that the author is an estate saler may help you find insightful articles that contain useful and helpful information for all those that attend these weekly events.

As we approach tomorrow, Thursday, May 19th get prepared for a huge weekend of estate sales across the country and be ready to shop.

Clicks On Your Website Count For Estate Sale Companies

Clicks on your website count for estate sale companies and we discuss the importance for those with websites.

Recently three different articles appeared in various publications or as Google Alerts about estate sales.

Only one article mentioned the name of the estate sale company. Two articles did not include or mention the names of the estate liquidation companies. Only the advertising listing website or credit.

Advertising listing websites are in business to host estate sale companies and showcase the company’s estate sales. Estate sale companies pay for these services.

There are several estate sale companies that are highly successful and they do not have websites. They use their email lists, Facebook, and then list their sales on one or two of the estate sale listing websites. To do this requires extensive marketing knowledge and knowing where to target your advertising.

If you are an estate sale company and have chosen to have a website you did so to increase your internet presence and viewership promoting your company and brand. Increasing your ranking on Google, Bing, Yahoo, or other search engines requires direct clicks on your website.

Pricing Estate Sale Contents Is Important

Pricing estate sale contents is important and can be challenging for estate sale companies.

Whether you are selling contents in Chicago, IL, Los Angeles, CA., Summit, NJ, Orlando, FL, or Detroit, MI. your prices will reflect the geographics of your location.

For estate sale companies where and how to research is important and for estate liquidators that starts with experience and knowledge in the personal contents liquidation business.

Years ago estate liquidators bought books by the dozens for everything from art pottery to Victorian furniture, general items, antiques and collectibles. Each year estate liquidators would buy the most recently published books for research, however, geographic locations were not included in these books.

Now with the internet, research is available at your finger tips. This doesn’t just include eBay. Estate sale companies have the ability to look at what other estate liquidators in their area are selling on such websites as EstateSale.com and others. The can also look at the prices on AuctionZip, Worthpoint, and other auction and resale websites.

Waiting For Discounts At Estate Sales May Cost You

Every weekend thousands of estate sales take place across this country and most offer contents priced well below retailers.

Consider that the two day estate sale has now become in many cases a three or four day sale to facilitate selling off the entire contents of the property and allows for discounting at a certain point.

Each estate sale company has a different policy about discounts or price reductions. Most estate sale companies will not offer discounts on day one. The sale is just beginning. Usually by day two they will offer some discount either on all or a part of the contents they are charged with selling. By day three the discounts may become greater. If the estate sale goes into a fourth day the discounts are usually quite significant.

Considering this information, when you see an item you are interested in acquiring, make the purchase. You may be making a mistake if you choose to wait for it to be discounted. The prices of items estate sales are already below what you pay at a retailer. It becomes a gamble to wait on the possibility of a discount, return another day and find the piece you wanted to purchase sold on day one.

Dangerous Items Found At Estate Sales By A Liquidator

A recent discussion of what estate liquidators find when preparing a home for an estate sale revealed not only dangerous items, but some items that most liquidators would not expect to encounter. As a former estate liquidator for 20 plus years, I was fortunate enough not to encounter anything like these.

Here is what one liquidator has encountered during his 30 years in the liquidation business. Estate liquidators wear many hats as you will see here.

A Civil War land mine with the plunger up. It was taken to the state police bomb squad.

Grenades required a call to the police captain.

This liquidator found Browning machine guns. The liquidator called an FFL with the proper paper work because the can sell or dispose of these items.

He also found an Electric Shock Machine which was donated to a local hospital museum.

WWII vets brought many items home as souvenirs of their conquests or battles.
