    Evening All,

    Generally speaking markets rely on supply and demand. The market cannot be affected by bumping a thread 40 times in the for sale section.

    One would suggest after bumping it 5 times your product is not in demand. Usually this is down to price. In fact it is always down to price.

    When a potential purchaser says "I don't like the look of that mark" what they are really saying is "your product is blemished and I would like it cheaper.

    Yet today I see for sale threads with multiple bumps. Taken the hint.

    You wouldn't get told no to a date 7 times and keep bumping into the birds boobies in the hope she miraculously finds your good self attractive all of a sudden. Selling your fine wares is no different.

    This was free advice to aid you from someone with a sales background.

    Does she frequent M3 cutters. Does she suspect anything about you?

    Except the bump has nothing to do with sales and everything to do with marketing. A thread isn’t bumped to target the same people, it’s bumped to bring the thread to the attention of people who haven’t seen it yet buy bumping it up to the top of the “unread posts” list.

    Ah, so that's why they only ever show adverts on TV once and once only. And you're someone with a sales background? :roflmao:

    Clearly, you don’t quite understand bumping threads.

    Exactly, if you don’t bump it then it just drops further and further down the list and away from people who could be potential buyers :confused:

    I understand there's a lot of people with wishful thinking and greedy pricing strategies that they refuse to accept aren't working.
