This is a simple yet rather comprehensive tutorial in which the only accomplishment is getting your item listed, but not generating any benefits (monetary gain, conducive Carousell community, personal experience, etc). Ready for some useful tips? Here we go (don't take it seriously to heart)! 1. Keyword Tags DO: Bombard an assortment of keywords unrelated to the product, so that people shopping for clothes would become interested in buying cards. DO NOT: Use related, and only necessary keywords that would help others find products easily. 2. Cover Photo DO: Use cover photos that gives no one any idea what the actual product is like, because imagination is what drives creativity. DO NOT: Use good quality photos that gives a better idea of the product being sold, being honest about showing any potential flaws in the product. Because imperfection is perfection or so they say. 3. Item Description DO: Leave this column blank, so that the buyer will also have a blank state of mind. DO NOT: Include essential information on the product, any points the buyer should take note about the product (flaws, additional instructions), meetup and mailing details if necessary. This helps the buyer to have a better understanding of your product which is what we do not want to achieve. 4. Relisting of Item DO: Relist the same item as many times as possible, preferably till Carousell server crashes. Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V everything over and tada, magic duplication happens! DO NOT: Delete unnecessary listings, and provide updates on the relisted listing if required, so that the community's page feed will be updated and relevant. After all, don't I get to own the whole listing page to myself? 5. Setting Item Price DO: Sell the item higher than retail price, preferably such that the profit gain is 500%. After all, we need highballers to offset the number of lowballers on Carousell. DO NOT: Set the price of the product reasonably, and be willing to open up to discussions and negotiations with the buyer. In case you're wondering how the above principles should be applied, I'll give a rather quick illustration within this listing. For example, I have some spare vanilla cards in my collection. In fact, I've too many of them that I could form a deck. Vanilla cards are not quite often sought after, but I still have to find means in hope of getting them sold. Bobian, try to smoke my way thru, hopefully got someone will be interested. Title: Duel Masters BEST Rush Deck (Below 3 Mana) Item description: Customization of the deck is available.

The epitome of an awesome listing. But. Is this what we want our online platform to be like? Think again, and spare a thought for others. A conducive online platform and community starts with you.
