At 8:00 in the morning, the first thing Lin Feiguan did when he woke up was to take out his mobile phone, open the Xianyu app, and search for the keyword "porcelain" in the search bar; then, in the detailed information, he checked the products "released within 1 day" and started browsing. Is there any "leak" that can be picked up.
As a "film friend", that is, a lover of collecting ancient porcelain fragments, Xianyu is Lin Feiguan's main source of profit: "No way, the mainstream sellers of porcelain chips are all concentrated in Beijing and Tianjin, and there are too few customers Buy email list in other cities. Losing money... I am now collecting some 'high-quality goods' from my friends in Beijing, and then selling it at Xianyu to make a little difference."
Lin Feiguan told Zinc Finance that as an unpopular item in the literary and antique industry, the audience is very small, and it is not only difficult to buy and sell, but sometimes even "picking up" to buy good goods, no one can share the joy: "Little people Hobbies are too difficult, not because business is difficult, but because no one understands.”
Lin Feiguan's complaints not only represent the voice of "film friends", but in a sense can cover most of the niche fans. When Tieba declined, the maintenance cost of building a BBS alone was too high and it was difficult to drain traffic. There was no fixed place for small groups of hobbyists to communicate.
As a result, Xianyu, which supports free trading, has become a gathering place for niche enthusiasts. But at the same time, they have to accept the community culture that Xianyu is full of false information and fake sellers.
1. The idle fish business is inseparable from bargaining
From "idle fish, let your idle swim up", to "can't be idle, go to idle fish", idle fish replaced a new slogan.
This can also accurately see the tone of Xianyu, from the original "returning blood" and "making the best use of everything" to a personal seller that is not limited to "second-hand goods".
Lin Feiguan has been using Xianyu since 2014. At first, he only logged in occasionally and sold some replaced old mobile phones. When he started to be attracted by "Porcelain", Xianyu became his most frequently opened App every day. With a 722 Sesame credit score and a long-term active presence in a certain field, Xianyu officially upgraded his account to a "Xianyu PRO version" user.
