1. HELP US HELP YOU...
There are currently two major ecommerce awards in contention this months. In 2011 TIAS.com won the About.com "Readers Choice Award" as the best place to buy antiques & Collectibles online, beating out sites like eBay, Ruby lane, Etsy & GoAntiques. We picked up a very nice surge in traffic & sales as a result. We'd like to win it again this year...

Another major ecommerce award that is up for grabs is the AuctionBytes.com "Sellers Choice Award". Out of 52 sites that were running, we were nominated as one of the top 16 and are now in the finals. Placing well in this contest is always a boost to traffic, sales & prestige.

2. More of your merchandise on Google Shopping
You may have noticed that as of last week, Google shopping is displaying many more items from TIAS.com merchants. We've seen a surge in sales and traffic as a result.
-------------------

3. Check your photos...
A very simple way to increase your sales using sharp, clear images with an uncluttered background. This is what customers want to see when viewing your merchandise online. So how do you take a photo that will appeal to your customers and increase your sales?

We have two very good online tutorials to help you take good photos for your Web site. See: http://www.tias.com/other/promo4.html and http://www.tias.com/other/promo5.html
