Online Seller Takes His Auctions to Twitter

auction - iclipart.comYou’ve probably attended auctions or purchased items on eBay, but have you participated in any Twitter auctions as a seller or buyer?  One eBay seller and auctioneer thinks you probably will someday soon, even if you haven’t yet.  In fact, he’s leading the way!

In Auction Bytes, e-commerce authority Ina Steiner reports that @AuctionWally (aka Walt Kolenda) is experimenting with micro-blogging to expand his online sales beyond live auctions and eBay.

@AuctionWally uses the hashtag #TwitterAuction to organize his auction tweets, and you might want to take a look at them.  His first auction item was a Disney Tinkerbell Clock on July 11, and since then he’s tweaked his process a little:  Instead of asking bidders to send him a Direct Message on Twitter for placing a bid, as he did initially, now he asks them to use the @reply feature;  He also links to Terms and Conditions for each item, according to Steiner.

Check out the online e-book by @AuctionWally titled How to Do Auctions on Twitter, if you’re intrigued.   Yep, that’s right… Just 10 days after his first auction on Twitter, he has a how-to book already written and published. 

Congratulations, @AuctionWally.  I’m a fan!  Now, if I can just figure out how to expand your idea and run with it to sell Crofton homes…
