The Great eBay Experiment – Part Deux

Well, unfortunately my awesome sexy artwork didn't sell, and I don't really understand why not. An hour before the auction ended I was showing no less than ten people watching the auction. I was expecting a last second bid from someone, but it never came.

So, I decided to do it again, but properly this time. Last time I had a quick scan, a few lines describing it and that was about it. This time I've included a scan, a photo of the framed picture and gone to a little bit of trouble to sell the piece in the description instead of just a few lines explaining what it is.

I think the biggest problem is coming up with a title. It's what people will search for and searching for any variation of 'Erotic Art' on eBay is like looking up 'porn' on google.

Anyway, I've relisted it, so if anyone who'd good at eBay feels like taking a look and giving me some pointers, I'd appreciate it. The biggest problem I'm having is the gallery pictures are way too small, and trying to link to a hosted image doesn't work…I've had to just put in the web address of the hosted pic, so does anyone know how to include a bigger picture?

I would recommend that you photograph the picture in the frame, but without the glass... that way there's no reflection.

You asked for recommendations.

I say take off the word sexy in the title. That is subjective and unecessary to those who agree with you. It won't stop the searches for people who really are into this type of art. Latex lady with whip might get more searches.
Also, lose the description as no one needs you to tell them it is tasteful, as that might not be how they see it and can ruin how they feel about it.
I love that you tell them it is one of a kind and will not be reproduced in print.

nice pic, wish I had her butt.
