Choose items you have that you want to rent. Be creative with this stage by thinking about your stuff as being important and useful to someone else. The possibilities are endless. Here are a few examples of the items I have rented: clothing, laptop, camera, and textbooks from previous semesters.
Tip Number 2
Create quality photos for your post! This might seem easy but, don’t take this step lightly! Be sure your photos have good, natural lighting and a clean background (nobody wants to see your pile of dirty clothes or your unmade bed in the background). Also, adding more than one angle of your items will give your potential renters a clear image of exactly what they are renting.
Tip Number 3
Create clever titles for your post! You want to stand out in the crowd! Something like “Stop buying College Books!” or “Forgot your laptop, no worries, Rent this one for the day!” These titles are more likely to capture the attention of your potential renter. Because, after all, as a college student, we can all relate to these scenarios.
Tip Number 4
Create quality item descriptions. This is important! Put yourself in the shoes of your potential renter by asking yourself, “What would I want to know about this item before renting it.” Make your item descriptions detailed, but not too lengthy. Add words that tell what the item is, describe the color, brand, age of item and what it is.
