Watchers Not Buying? Try This eBay Strategy!

We have all been there. Multiple watchers on an item and no bids. No questions. Just silence. And waiting. Then more silence. Why don't they just buy it already? Here is something you can try when your item is getting views, has watchers, and nobody is making a move. Try raising the price. That's right - RAISE it. Most sellers in this situation will lower the price to entice buyers to bid or buy. But, if you raise the price, watchers may take action because they want to get the item before the price goes any higher. They may be watching the item to see if you will drop the price. And if you drop it once, you may drop it again - so lowering the price only encourages them to keep watching. Dropping the price isn't as effective as raising it. Try it and see what happens.
