I listed a couple lots of Dr. Seuss books this week. Always good sellers! Neither have sold yet, but both immediately had multiple watchers. When doing a little research into what book lots have sold for recently (to help determine my own asking price) I noticed one listing included both Seuss and Suess. Which gave me pause. Uhhhhhhh – which is right? Have I been spelling it right?
Out of curiosity I looked up Seuss on eBay. It came back with 33,157 listings.
I then looked up Suess. 2536 listings. 2536 listings that include an incorrect spelling!
Granted, some, like the listing I found, probably include both spellings. But most? I’d guess not. And looking at the completeds I could see that a bunch with incorrect spellings have sold.
The good news is, I did have it spelled correctly in all of my listings. In addition to book lots, I often buy and sell Kohl’s plush based on Dr. Seuss characters. But what will be even better is when I include both spellings, so I can get even more eyes landing on my listings. I am going to update all of my listings tonight.
I know I’ve mentioned dual spellings in past posts. Some others I always make sure to include are:
Tweety ~ Tweetie
Bam Bam ~ Bamm Bamm
Sulley ~ Sully
Does anyone have any others to add to the list?
