Swing into Savings!

As John Toskey mentioned in this episode of EPN TV, eBay has been focused on structured data and providing buyers with an even more captivating shopping experience. This initiative merging art and science has provided eBay with several insights about many of our categories. For example, according to Jill Ramsey, eBay’s VP of Merchandising Soft Goods, “We learned that the best-selling golf clubs on eBay are not the latest and greatest, not the newest – buyers are actually looking for a model from two years ago.” She continued, “Golf club technology does not radically change year to year – you can get a great deal if you’re willing to buy a model from a couple of years ago.”

Luckily for you and your visitors, eBay is currently running a huge sale on pre-owned Callaway clubs. Direct your visitors here where they can save up to 40% on fairway woods, drivers, hybrids, single irons, wedges and accessories. For even more savings, encourage your visitors to check out the Callaway pre-owned store on eBay where they can save up to 16%.

To help you promote this event, we’re providing a variety of creatives. Use these attention-grabbing visuals to inspire your visitors to swing into savings. You’ll want to hurry, as these deals end on August 4 at 9 PM PT.

Unless you’ve been in hiding for the past week, you probably know that Pokémon GO is taking the world by storm. The augmented reality mobile game is making daily headlines for increasing the steps of gamers who scour neighborhoods, equipped with their mobile devices’ GPS and camera, earning points and advancing levels by capturing, battling and training virtual Pokémon characters.

If it seems like this phenomenon came out of left field, it may surprise you to learn that Pokémon items have actually been at the top of the eBay trend charts for quite some time. In fact, Pokémon has been the fourth best-selling fandom franchise on eBay globally for the past decade, beating out Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and Star Trek.

Biggest-Franchises-of-All-Time-eBay-Data2But with the launch of this new Pokémon GO mobile game, its popularity among millennials and other groups has leveled up. Since the release of the app in several countries including the United States in mid-July, one Pokémon-related item has sold every 12 seconds globally on eBay, which is a 57% increase from its pre-app average selling rate.

Fans are clamoring for the most popular Pokémon GO merchandise, which eBay Data Labs has released here. eBay is the premiere destination for hard-to-find items, like the $35 Nintendo Pokémon Go Plus bracelet, which is sold out elsewhere but currently selling for $109 - $128 on eBay.

You can capture your audience with this trend by promoting it on your site, and particularly on social media with the trending #PokemonGO hashtag. Direct your visitors to eBay’s Pokémon GO landing page for the best deals and most popular items in the Collectibles, Electronics and Fashion categories, including:

Collectibles: Stickers, caps, toys, stuffed animal, trading cards
