If you’re considering opening up a shop to sell any kind of merchandise, you might want to skip the store rent expenses and sell out of your home. Hundreds of thousands of small business owners have created profitable businesses using eBay rather than their own storefront.
Would-be marketers have caught on to the craze and try to profit by selling ebooks, or downloadable instructions, for becoming an eBay powerseller. Here’s one example. The ebooks are generally nothing more than pamphlets and won’t contain much information. You can be sure they will contain a sales pitch for additional materials priced much higher.
The same information can usually be obtained for free. In fact, a recent CNN article provides eight tips to becoming an eBay millionaire, for the newcomer to the auction website.
1. Learn to buy before you sell.
2. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
3. Sell what you love.
4. It’s not only what you sell, but how you sell.
5. Hone your headlines.
6. A picture is worth a thousand words.
7. Get into the description.
8. Think big.
The CNN article provides more information if you’re so inclined to read in depth. I’ve used eBay occasionally, for both buying and selling, since 2000. I only have 5 eBay points, but I have 100% positive feedback.
The aution website is testing out a new eBay Wiki which looks like it will contain more tips for making money. I would check for articles here before buying any ebook on the topic.
