Tips for newbies trying to sell

OK, so I was just getting a nice collection of shipping envelopes, and all ready to post my FSOTs, then this selling scare began.
I have bought plenty of stuff here, but have only had one mamma give me feedback (per my request).
Any tips from the pros on how to sell without much feedback? Is it OK to give a "reference" from someone who isn't a registered user of DS??

TIA,

Do you have feedback anywhere else? Ebay, TBW, etc? You can link those in you siggy.
If someone hasn't left you feedback, feel free to nicely ask them for it!!

I would definitely ask those people to leave you feedback! A lot of times if I'm the seller I forget to leave feedback since I'm usually selling lots of other things too. Also, have you left feedback for them? When you leave feedback for them they'll get a PM telling them that and it will usually remidn them.

Do you have anything you could list FFS? I was able to gain feedback that way and clear out clutter as well!

Wow! Great advice, I never thought of that. I don't have feedback elsewhere, but will try to build mine slowly here.
thanks ladies!

Re: Tips for newbies trying to sell

i would also take good photos.
for each item your selling take a picture of the outside and inside close so sommeone can really see what they are getting.
too often people don't take photos or they just provide a link to a whole bunch of diapers grouped together.
it takes longer..... but people will feel better about their purchase
