Shop Victoriously. A new eBay promotion

Win $50,000!

By now most of us have seen the new eBay TV advertising campaign. If You didn’t then read on and find out where to see it all:

After the very successful eBay huge “It” campaign then (in my own opinion) the not very successful smaller “Windorphins” campaign.

eBay started the new huge campaign just in time for the holidays shopping rush : “SHOP VICTORIOUSLY” is the name.

I saw the first ad “Dog race” of this campaign before a movie in the movie theater and immediately researched it as soon as I got home, from my marketing view.

I think this campaign will attract a new kind of buyers to eBay, as well as pushing some merchandise categories.

You can see all ads on the new great looking site for the campaign here: Shop Victoriously

The site covers a lot on the idea of shopping and winning. You can tell from the scenario of the 4 ads, it reassemble the bidding and winning scenario in real eBay world.

After watching all the videos, there is a true story section, where real people telling their recent success stories on eBay.

Then there is the “Andy & Paul” section of the site, with current and upcoming video episodes speaking about the “7 Principles” of becoming a true winner aside from the words of wisdom and other episodes to become available on a later date.

One more section that will grab your attention: The $50,000 game, which you can win any of the daily prizes or win the $50,000. Well I will leave that up to you and good luck.

Launch of one click bidding on eBay.com

Fresh news and new tools from eBay.
This week eBay is launching a new tool called:

One click bidding.
This tool is for buyers, and what it allows you to do is: Once you bid once, then to re-bid again just click on the link, it will bring up a small window in your screen (from within the item page) so when it gets to the last few minutes of the auction, the small window will refresh automatically about every 3 seconds.
From within this window the new one click bidding option will be there so you can re-bid very quickly using it.
So look for that, it will be under the bid button on the item page.
This is coming out this week and it’s great for buyers and sellers also since it will allow more bidding and therefore a higher price for the items.
I will revisit and use the tool once it’s out so I can study it more and give you any further information about it.
