Selling antiques online has now become much easier with the introduction of web video. With more and more people having high-speed internet access in their homes, it now becomes possible for you to broadcast your own “Antiques Show” right from the comforts of your home or antique store.
Instead of having a plain website with pictures, you can now shoot video of your antiques, while at the same time educating the viewer on the piece they’re considering buying.
Just take a look at QVC or the Home Shopping Network. They’re moving thousands of products directly from their tv show. They also broadcast their shows online as well and thousands of products are sold via the videos they have on their website.
With the Internet, you can easily setup your own show with your store as the backdrop. You can then easily have someone follow you around the store with a video camera as you talk about the various pieces in the store.
You’d then edit and upload those videos directly to your website and now access to the millions of people searching the Internet each month for various antiques.
Setting up your own “antiques show” requires a video camera, a quality microphone, some basic lighting equipment and video editing software.
There is a slight learning curve involved, but once you master the basics, you’ll be way ahead of the curve.
