Write a caption that sells. Show how the product is great for the clients. However, keep it short and concise. You may use bullet points to highlight the important features of your products.

A video on the products is also a great idea if allowed by the site. It should however be short, informative and funny. It enables a seller to engage better with the visitors and is likely to convert many of them to clients better than captions and images.

Many of your clients will write reviews of their experience with you and the particular product they bought thus ensure quality service. Where there are disputes, try to resolve them early enough without using third parties. This will give you good reviews from clients.
