MaxSold buyer reviews through the “Complete this sentence” process had common themes, so we converted common words in those reviews into an Infographic (the more the word was used in the reviews, the bigger the font size). There were three surprises…

1. We know MaxSold is awesome, but do our buyers agree? Turns out YES! GREAT was the most common word used to describe the MaxSold experience (“I can find great vintage items…”, “I get great items at fair prices”, “great prices and can bid through a fair process.”)

2. We were pleasantly surprised that LOVE was a common theme: One out of six MaxSold buyers used the word LOVE to complete the sentence. (“love the unique and unusual things I find… “, “love the thrill of the hunt”, “love vintage items and collectibles”, “love the thrill of eco-friendly shopping”)

3. Words like interesting, treasures, unique, vintage and variety were commonly used to describe MaxSold finds (okay, so maybe that wasn’t a huge surprise) (“…treasures I always wanted”, “…treasures that I cannot find in regular stores items with character and pizazz!”, “…unique items unavailable in stores”, “…great vintage items”)
