Stay Connected! Here’s What You’ve Missed on Social Media..

We entered 2019 with a vision: We wanted to bring COMC to the forefront of the most popular social media circles within the trading the card hobby and continue our goal of globally uniting collectors. In doing so, we wanted to connect and engage with current and past COMC members and users, and introduce our service to a new wave of collectors who may have heard of us, or saw our cards on eBay, but were unfamiliar with who we were and the features we offer on our platform.

Over the past 10 months we’ve tailored our social media content based off of feedback from our followers. Our followers told us that they wanted more transparency, such as which players sell the best, what super high-end items have sold recently on COMC, and how to use our service. In response, we’ve created recurring series on Instagram and Facebook tailored towards flipping successes and top selling players of the week.

Not the least bit surprising, we’ve also found out that collectors simply want to see cool and unique cards fill up their timelines! With that, we’ve found new opportunities to get some of the more unique and trending cards from our consignors in front of more buyer’s eyes than ever before.

If you’re not following us on social media, here’s what you’re missing out on:

We kick off every week with our Monday Morning Discussion, where we pull no punches and ask the hard-hitting questions about the hobby and the world of sports. One of our recent more fiery discussions was regarding limited release products and how they can be better allocated among collectors:

Social Media Roundup: Spring 2019

It’s been a little while since our last Social Media Roundup, so we wanted to take a moment to get you caught up on what you might have missed by not following our growing social media accounts. The COMC Blog will always be the #1 source for COMC updates, industry news and hobby focused editorials, but you’re missing a lot of other great weekly trading card and sports-related content if you’re not following our social media pages! Be sure to give our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts a follow if you haven’t already done so to stay up of what we’re up to all across the internet!

Facebook: 

Earlier this month we gave away over $2000 in COMC Credit during our annual Spring Cleaning Sale. We probably won’t be doing giveaways of that magnitude every month, so hopefully you had a chance to get in on the action and claim your piece of our giveaway prizes! If not, be on the lookout for future giveaways that are 100% FREE to enter and are as simple as telling us your favorite trading card, or how you would spend your prize if you won!

We listened to some of your feedback when creating our latest recurring original Facebook series, which is our ‘eBay Flip of the Week’. Once a week we’ll show you the most impressive flip of a trading card that was purchased by a COMC member on the COMC Marketplace that later sold through our eBay cross-listing feature for a significantly higher price. Why is this relevant? Not only does this give a glimpse into the flipping aspect of COMC, but it also hints at the types of trading card sets and players that have strong flipping potential. So far we’ve showcased flips of sports cards from NBA megastars, minor league baseball top prospects, and even UFC fighters!

Here is just a taste of some of our recent eBay Flips of the Week:

We kick off every week with our Monday Morning Discussion, where we poll our some 12,000+ twitter followers with a question related to the world of sports or trading cards. You’ll catch quality discussions on a weekly basis such as this one from last week:

You’ll also catch the #DailyCheckout every single day, which is our mid-day ongoing series that shines a spotlight on athletes from a particular weekly theme. Recent themes have included MLB Catalysts Week, or players who often spark huge offensive outputs for their team, NBA Finals MVP’s Week, and NHL Legends Week!

Instagram

We can’t thank our Instagram followers enough for all of the love we’ve received in 2019! Our Instagram account (@checkoutmycards) remains our fastest growing social media platform to date! Our followers are very eager to share their COMC #Maildays and their flipping success stories with us, and we’re more than happy to give them a signal boost by reposting their COMC experiences to our growing base of followers.
