Snipe Your Way to Auction Success
Bidding for a bargain is all part of the exciting eBay experience. But what can really disappoint is when you're all set to win that fantastic, gold plated gizmo and someone else just beats your bid in the very last minute.
This trixy technique is called 'sniping' and is perfectly legal. It's very annoying when someone does it to you but it can be a most effective way to win auctions?but only if you're able to keep a constant eye on the listing and have a computer all fired up and ready to go.
But, we're faced with a problem. We can't always be on hand each time a selected auction reaches its final moments. It can mean having to log in many times each day or perhaps even in the middle of the night. Well, the answer could be to use special sniping software.
Okay, so what is sniping software and how does it work?
Basically, it's a clever little programme which you can set up in advance to place a last minute auction bid on your behalf. Some sniping programs can be downloaded. With others, you place your bid through a special sniping website. You can then wander off, play golf or whatever, knowing that your bid will be made - in the dying moments - for that 'must have' special item.
And it's all very simple to activate.
You just enter the details of each auction you're interested in (i.e. the auction number) and the maximum amount you're prepared to pay for the item. And here's the really sneaky part! The program then lodges your bid in the very last SECONDS of the auction. This means that anyone bidding against you just hasn't the time to place a counter bid. Auto snipers claim to be around 95 ? 99 per cent successful in enabling you to win auctions this way.
There are various sniping programs and services available. Most will charge you a small free but will allow you a free trial of their software first. I've used them and won some important auctions so my advice is to have a free trial run. You've nothing too lose.

Effective Auction Listings - How To Create Them
Once you've created the best possible title for your item, you will move on to writing your auction description. Here, you have more space to give a detailed description of the item you are selling in the body of your auction. While the photo and title are what get a person interested in your auction and bringing them to your listing, it's your description that is going to have to induce them to actually bid on it.
The 3 Minute Auction and Minute Auction Explained
Am I the only person who doesn't know what a 3 minute auction is? Looking for fresh content for my site, I discover that "minute auction," or even a 5, 10 and 30 minute auction is a popular item. Some auction sites may refer to a minute auction as a "Live Bid." The "minute auction" or "3 minute auction" actually comes the closest to duplicating the excitement (and anxiety) of a real auction. No, it is not the same as an Ebay minute auction.
