eBay is rolling out an amazing dashboard location that will be available to all sellers. They’ve entitled it, “The Hub”. However, I’m calling it “The Hubba Hubba”!
I first learned about this on the big screen at the eBay Seller Summit in San Jose, CA (Sept 10th & 11th, 2015). I’d been invited to attend the eBay 20th Anniversary Bash and was lucky enough to be among the first eBay sellers to learn of this and many other wonderful changes eBay is making!
On a more personal level, it was such a great a pleasure to meet Dennis Pereira, the Product Marketing Manager at eBay as he shared with me the details about The Hub.
The more information he shared, the more excited I got thinking, WOW this hub is going to be an amazing tool for eBay sellers!
Hence, The Hubba Hubba!
Why eBay sellers need some Hubba Hubba in their lives
For myself as a marketer, what I love most about this Hub is its ability to measure our marketing results and display them alongside viewing updates with each listing.
This shows eBay sellers the live, actual statistics of how our listings are performing. Incredible!
The creators of The Hub designed it with a few specific goals in mind:
- To simplify the seller experience (and you know I am all about simplifying selling on eBay)
- Keeping everything all in Place – making this a “Unified Hub” No jumping around with that lost feeling we tend to feel sometimes looking for our reports on eBay.
- Detailed Analytics (hubba-hubba) – This is the part I was especially excited about as eBay confirmed they are providing us with “World Class” analytics capabilities.
As an eBay selling coach and consultant, one of the biggest questions I receive from clients is “How can I market my listings more?”.
The Hub gives sellers such awesome data through this new dashboard AND provides tools with guidance on which direction to go. Basically, eBay is doing an even better job of helping us all be successful sellers!
Now, selling on eBay can be challenging. I know you have heard me say it and if you’re like me, you love a good challenge. With this new functionality, though, it will be easier for us all to take our eBay stores to new levels!
Bottom Line: Selling on eBay will soon be easier insert
