Influenster Talks: How to Create a Great eBay Collection

Want to inspire others? Or create a collection compiled of some of your favorite products? Then an eBay collection is what you're looking for. It's an easy, not to mention beautiful, way to group and store products you love. Your collections become even more useful around the holidays as they become the perfect gift guides and inspirations. Don't forget to browse other user's eBay collections too. There's an infinite well of inspiration.

So now, are you ready to create some amazing eBay collections? Before you get started, here are a few tips straight from our eBay experts at Influenster HQ.

1. Think of a unique topic

When you create a collection, it's a great opportunity to show your personality. Let your collection be a beautiful reflection of your quirks, interests, and expertise. It can be about anything, so let your imagination run wild.

2. That being said, don't be too unique.

Make sure the products you choose to feature in your collection aren't too specific. Ideally this collection will serve as the muse for another eBay user's holiday shopping, so collectors' items and antiques can be a real bummer if they are only available to a chosen few.

3. Be creative and informative.

eBay shoppers are looking to you for advice, so let them know what you really think about the products you included in your collection. If you used a product in a specific way, tell them. If you got it as a gift for someone else, that's good info too! Maybe your collection is a list of items you want to buy for someone else, in which case it's a good reminder for you. Whatever you are using it for, keep in mind when it comes to information - the more the merrier.

4. Go above and beyond.

Yes, the minimum number of products for a collection is 10, but why not add more? The more effort you put into your collection, the more you get out of your collection. Let your collection be something that you're proud of, something that inspires you, even something that inspires others! Whatever you do, give it your all because it will only help you in the end.

5. Check out other collections for ideas.
