Identify The Best Classified Category And Sell Your Toy Car For

Motorcycles If youre going to place an ad in the local newspaper or online then do a little research first to ensure that you put it in the right classified category. Dont just mark it to go in a generic toys category. Do a little research first and youll find that you can raise your earning potential considerably. First of all take a look through a few back issues of a classified ad magazine, or go through a lot of pages at an online classified ad site. Look at what people are selling and where they are selling it. Take a look at the index page and note the number of classified category sections there are under each general heading. The reason for this is that if you are selling a toy car, then it may look as if its worth a couple of dollars. Even if you state that its in mint condition or new in its box, anyone who sees that in the generic toys section is not going to think of that car as anything special. It may have a good brand name, but if youve put it in a general section you wont find it attracting much attention. However, place it in the right classified category, perhaps under collectible or 1960s or perhaps under a section for the TV series/movie the car was a merchandising item for, and suddenly you have a different ballgame. Collectors really do scan these classifieds looking to add to their collections, but they dont all take the time to go through the thousands of regular toys looking for the extraordinary ones. Instead, they go to the classified category thats most likely to have items in it that they are looking for. If you have collectors looking at your toy car, you can be sure that you are going to get more or it than someone just looking for cars to add to their sons toy box. So another thing you should do before placing the ad in the correct classified category, you should do a little investigation to find out what your car is worth! You can usually do a search online for the kind of model car you are going to sell. You should find a current auction value for it, and perhaps a specialty store value. Keep in mind that the store/auction are likely to be a higher value than you will get because the sellers have to make a profit on what they paid for their toy car. However it does give you an indication of the kind of price you should ask for it. When you place the ad (in the best classified category remember), dont fix the price at whatever you believe to be a good rate for the item based on your research. Instead give the price youd like, which shouldnt be the lowest you will accept, and note that you will consider offers from interested parties. Depending on the rarity of your toy car you may find it sells immediately at your asking price, on the other hand you may find that you are contacted by collectors who will try to negotiate a better price. Whether you accept it or not is up to you but one things for sure, you probably wouldnt be getting those offers at all if you hadnt taken the time to identify the right classified category in the first place.
