Ever tried selling on eBay before? If not, then you’re probably lost about how to get started. But the good news is that it’s incredibly simple and easy to sell on eBay without losing a ton of money. People go to this site everyday looking to BUY something. If this isn’t a reason to sell on eBay, then I don’t know what is. I can tell you this: easy money awaits there.
But understandably, some people don’t like the idea of sitting by their computer and listing hundreds or even thousands of auctions everyday… or every week. And I’ll admit, that’s something that I don’t want to do either. Luckily eBay has tools that allow you to re-submit and “auto submit” your unsold listings. Last time I check, this was called “Turbo Lister”. Great tool.
Now if you are still lost, don’t worry. Think marketing. You need as many qualified eyeballs to your auctions if you want to make a lot of money. Now granted, eBay gets millions of visitors and customers visiting their site everyday. But if you want true success, you will need to direct these people to YOUR auctions.
The first thing that you can do is sell in a niche. Don’t offer 101 different items. People who visit your listings will probably browse your other items. And if they see that you have a ton of different things for sale, they won’t think that you’re the “go-to” person on eBay for a particular range of products.
For example, if you go on eBay and sell a brand new SATA hard drive for sale, the right person may come across and check your other listings – just to see if you have another SATA drive available at a lower price. Don’t you do this also? Doesn’t this sound feasible? What makes you think that your prospects don’t do this also.
If you’re selling SATA hard drives, then also sell PATA drives, solid state drives, 3 1/2 inch floppy disks, processors, keyboards, computer screens, docks, and etc. Make yourself known as the number 1 person on eBay that sells a particular kind of product. And make sure that your prices are good enough for you to make a good profit… all while giving your prospect a good deal also.
Another thing that you should do is drive traffic to your page by using resources OUTSIDE of eBay. For example, many people boost their eBay store sales for free by doing free marketing. Techniques like article marketing, forum marketing, affiliate marketing, YouTube, social marketing, email marketing, backend marketing, and etc… are allowing these people to really make a good living on eBay.
You can do the same too. And if you want to ramp up your sales, you will need to drive traffic using some of the most popular internet marketing techniques. Once you do them, they’re a cinch. And yes… these strategies can be done for free. Take the time out to learn and master them, and watch as your eBay sales slowly rise… month after month.
Good luck with selling on eBay and having success there.
