How To Write An Effective Profile For Your Addoway Store

How many times have you asked yourself if your Addoway profile is effective enough to attract traffic? How many times have you asked yourself if you are taking full advantage of the tools you have at your disposal on Addoway?

When was the last time you looked at your Addoway Profile? You should! It can be an effective selling tool. Addoway gives us several tools that will help potential customers get to know us (sellers) and to build their trust, so they are more likely to purchase. I thought it would be important to do a review of some of the easy ways you can take full advantage of right now on Addoway to help increase your store presence. 

I recently spent some time updating my profile. The first thing I did was to list the items I sell as bullet points across the top. You can see it here: Then I spent time introducing myself and my store.

Next, I added my social media accounts to my profile: Facebook, Twitter,  LinkedIn and even Pinterest for that matter. Go to My Addoway > Seller Dashboard > Edit Profile and then, click on links.

You can also link your social media to buttons on each ad for ease in sharing: Go to My Addoway > Seller Dashboard > Social Network Tools and click on the links. This makes it easy for you and your followers to share your ads. 

It's also important to add a You Tube video to your profile page too!  Go to My Addoway > Seller Dashboard > Video. 

I truly believe that the Pro Membership program gives you even more tools. With the pro membership program, I can add a large profile banner similar to that of Facebook; my profile will be featured in rotation in the featured members section on Addoway's home page; I then pick 8 listings to be featured in rotation on the main buy page and even on the product category pages and can change them up as often as I like and so much more...

Take a look at these other Pro features:

 •Monthly activity reports
 •Larger ads on your profile
 •Choose which ads to show on profile
 •Let buyers search your store exclusively
 •List multiple quantities in a single listing
 •Custom coupon codes for your buyers
 •Featured on Addoway's Twitter Account
 •Featured on Addoway's Facebook Page
 •Featured in the Pro Member Spotlight

Membership only costs $75/year or $8.95/month.

I might seem like a little, but everything helps and with the tools at your disposal, why not take advantage of them? Maybe the question is why are you not investing in your success? I am sure that you might be hesitant in the pro program until you are selling, but there are so many features that are free that you could be missing on if you don't spend some time exploring. 

If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below in the comment section and I will try my best to answer you. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi, you mentioned that "Membership only costs $75/year"

I just read a blog where Bonanza Pro membership program is $50 per month x 12 months = $600.00/year.

You're telling us that Addoway offers the same "Pro Level" for only $75/year. Is that correct?

I also read a blog that mentioned Addoway celebrates 3 years?

So then, this would only be $75/year x 3 years = $225.00 Pro Addoway Membership,


Bonanza times table would be $600.00 x 3 years = $1800.00 pro membership

How fortunate can an Addoway member be putting that difference into their pockets.

Why would anyone want to pay more?

My fortunate cookie reads: Savings!

Very good information, I only wish I sold enough to me a pro member, but when I sell a small item every few months, I would soon be in the hole. Enjoyed your blog though

I just came across this blog by accidental way of Twitter from this link

and then I clicked on then the Turnbury Coat link which redirects me to this merchant's site and once I clicked various places (blogs) to find this, well, I have to tell you that I had not heard of Addoway until now and I like the fresh simple homepage along with easy access to seller storefronts.

Do you have international memberships for HK or are they all the same?
Thank you, asanastore

I believe the Pro Addoway Membership offers rewarding perks. I just happened to come across this recent new blog after reading this gentleman's Fitz & Floyd blog

I believe this site is quite refreshing and look forward to learn more as new blogs continue.

Donna, your profile is wonderful and you have stated so many tips and things that I had not even thought of. Such great info. I had cataract surgery yesterday so I'm not seeing too well today, but as soon as my vision clears up, I'm going to really get busy on imnproving my profile! Thank you so much for sharing :)

I'm glad you found my blog helpful, Sharon.

Everyone I know that has had cataract surgery says it is wonderful. I'll probably need it eventually too. I have early cataracts - and they said they can correct some of my other vision problems too! Have a great weekend!

Trying the pro membership on here for this month, to see where it takes me. So far havnt sold anything while having it. Im a gold memeber at bonanza and it does not cost that much, the memebership you are talking about is a upgraded version for $50.00 a month and they take no seller fees for the first $50.00 so if you sell enough it basically is free. I really hope this membership works and I make some sales. If so I will buy it for the year.
