Recently a lot of new players have entered the glyph market. One sure fire way to get sales is to be the last to post. Another way is to undercut the profit for them away. Together, it makes for a mean combination.
I have no problems in oursourcing effort. I have paid for my herbs to be milled for a long time now. Previously I had another player selling glyphs for me.
So, Neo was mostly right, I am posting all my glyphs on new alts. But they are not alts on my account. Breevok is willing to sell his stock and materials, while I have outsourced my retailing operation.
I have provided this new player all of my made glyphs 'on loan', and will charge him a flat fee for recrafting sold glyphs, plus a cut of any sold glyphs above that flat fee. I am providing advice on pricing and posting strategies. Another win (for me) is closing the second account.
The addons used are:
- altoholic to keep track of his inventories (bags + mail + AH) - both accounts have this installed,
- KTQ to queue glyphs (based on altoholic inventories),
- Gnomeworks to process the queue (KTQ prerequisite).
- The new player will use TSM to post and mail glyphs (TSM has a base application plus applets for tasks); and
- postal + mail opener to retrieve mail (While I have both installed, I will need to confirm that postal is required in addition to mail opener)
I am not going to spoil it by giving the name of the new toons that are posting glyphs, but I will confirm correct guesses. His presence is definitely growing.
