Use a free listing service like auctiva so you can include lots of large photos in your listing. Use your own photos rather than a canned photo when you can. Buyers like to see the real item.

Get a Paypal account. Most buyers won't bid on items if the seller doesn't take Paypal payments.

browse Ebay for similar item to get a sense of the "sold" price and depending on how fast you want the item sold, list your item below the average sold price.

Take your OWN clear pictures, have concise descriptions and well defined sales and shipping terms
