Krrb Classifieds — Optimize Your Keywords to Sell Better

+Search, +Shop, +Sell

+Search, +Shop, +Sell

We all know that any online shopping site is only as good as their search. A hard-to-find search bar, non-existent customizable options and poor results is a surefire recipe for the back button click. Chances are that if it’s harder to find what you’re looking for than your actual desire to purchase it, you’ll leave empty handed. Which is bad news for both buyers and sellers.

At Krrb, we understand how important these features are. Which is why we re-vamped our navigation bar by retrofitting it with a new one-step search design. We’ve also added new filters, like “Items That Ship”, to help you shop local anywhere to find that perfect item. Now, we have taken it a step further by tripling the number of intelligent keywords allowed on listings.

Targeted keywords (or tags) help provide clarity and classification. As a buyer, using keywords to search can make browsing in a category easy and with multiple keyword searches, pinpoint an exact item in seconds. As a seller, incorporating intelligent keywords will include your items in more accurate search results upping your chances for a sale, great! And by auto-populating keywords based on your listing title and description, we have cut the amount of work you have to do in half.

When it comes to keywords, think big, small, detailed and big picture all at the same time. To take full advantage of all the benefits, try to focus your keywords on these following types:

  1.  Categories (Broad/General): furniture, electronics, clothing
  2. Sub Categories (Specified): chair, phone, jacket
  3. Brand (Manufacturer/Label): Ikea, Apple, Levi’s
  4. Attributes (Characteristics): bar height, white, denim
  5. Condition (Shape/Appearance): handmade, new, vintage

Keep this list handy when creating listings and remember that a little effort here will payoff down the line. Let us know what you think about our new keyword functionality in the comments below or send us your suggestions in the Krrb Forum.

Moveloot Makes Moving Sales a Thing of the Past

The Moveloot team helps people sell their furniture when they're moving.

The Moveloot team helps people sell their furniture when they’re moving.

After several moves across the country, the founders of Moveloot — Bill Bobbitt, Jenny Morrill, Ryan Smith and Shurti Shah — decided there was a better way to deal with your old couch than sending it into a landfill. These four friends created a one-stop-shop for getting rid of your belongings quickly when you’re moving. Krrb is excited to be partnering with them to keep used furniture out of dumps.

Based in San Francisco, Moveloot will pick up your furniture, store it in their warehouse, sell it for you and share half of the profits. Although their stress-free moving system is only available in the Bay Area, they do have plans to move into more cities in 2014.

And if you’ve recently moved and need to furnish your new digs, Moveloot has plenty of secondhand furniture to fill your home. They also provide free delivery over purchases over $500 and for items below $500, a $10-$50 delivery fee, depending on the size or number of items. All items can be purchased through Moveloot and can be returned for a full refund within 48 hours of delivery/pickup, excluding delivery costs.

Shoppers can also use Moveloot’s Wish List feature to get leads on items they want to purchase.

Be sure to check out Moveloot’s corner with Krrb members get 10 percent off their first purchase.

I Want This — Danish Modern Table Legs

These graceful desk legs appeal to my DIY sensibility. Building a desk or dining table from these beauties would be a win/win. Undoubtedly I would end up with a new, stunning piece of furniture and I would feel like I’ve really done something (rather than just buying something). Of course, finding just the right top and figuring out the stabilizing structure will be no easy task. But there’s still nothing quite as rewarding as rolling up your sleeves and working with your own two hands. Catherine Rampell and her outsourcing theories be damned!

Find them on Cushion Chicago’s Krrb corner. $80.
