Earlier this week we called out to our users (that’s you). We told you that we had recently acquired a video camera, and that we wanted you to tell us what to do with it. Thank you again readers for not letting us down. We had some really great feedback come in over Twitter and Facebook, and have organized some of our favorite ideas into the Top Ten list below. If you sent in an idea, then check below to see if it was posted, and if you didn’t, we would love to hear which ideas you like the most. Without further adieu, the UsedEverywhere.com community’s Top Ten Things To Do With Our Video Camera:

An interesting conversation recently began in the Discussions section of the UsedEverywhere.com Facebook page. The topic title is “What’s the deal with fake buyers?” and it provoked several users to contribute their two cents. The issue is buyers who show interest in an item that is being sold on UsedEverywhere, only to flake out on the purchase. This can cause the seller to lose the sale all together if they turn away other prospective buyers while they’re waiting for the first buyer to purchase their item.
Like a teenager going through that awkward stage in life, there was a time when UsedEverywhere.com was creating content that was more cheesy than compelling. We like to think that we outgrew the tawdry music and bad jokes, but you’ll have to be the judge. Below is a collection of videos we recently dug up from our early days. We’re not sure exactly who made them or what purpose they served, but we want to know what you think.
You’ve been watching an Olympic event here and there since last Friday, and if you’re like me, you want more. There are a ton of athletic outlets for you to sink your teeth into, and your local UsedEverywhere.com site probably has the tools you’ll need before heading to the nearest ski hill or ice rink. If you’ve got an itch to do some sporting of your own, check out these ten items to get you into the Winter Games groove before the ice melts and the snow gets too slushy.
Your local UsedEverywhere.com site has the ability to pinpoint a location using a postal code and create a visual map of that location inside of your ad. This feature lets potential buyers know where your item is located and will help to narrow the number of responses you receive to buyers who are in your area and ready to pick up and purchase your item. This means that you will have fewer queries to respond to before completing your sale. Sounds pretty fantastic, right?
Just last week, the friendly UsedEverywhere staff introduced the “Featured Ad,” which is an ad placement that sits on the top of a particular category page on your local UsedEverywhere.com site. That means that if you purchase a Featured Ad spot, your ad will be the first thing that buyers see when they’re browsing your item’s category. Pretty enticing, wouldn’t you say?
