Selling on Ebay
July 19th, 2013

Let’s Get started on eBay

Are you interested in using eBay to buy the products that you need or even sell items that you no longer want?

If you are, you will need to create an eBay account, if you haven’t already done so.  Although many automatically assume that getting started with eBay is a complicated task, it doesn’t have to be.  All you really need to do is follow a few simple steps and you should be good to go.

The first thing that you will want to do is visit eBay’s website, which is located at eBay.com.  Once you are at eBay’s website, you can then click on the link that allows you to register a new account.  At that stage, you will be brought to a signup form.  That signup form will ask you a series of questions.  For instance, you will need to enter in your full name, your address, your telephone number, as well as an e-mail address.  You will also be required to come up with an eBay screen name or sign in name, as well as an eBay password, which will be used to access your eBay account.  Once you have correctly filled out the form, you will be sent a verification email from eBay.

Once you have received eBay’s verification email and followed all of the instructions, which will help you validate your eBay account, you will be able to start using eBay right away. When you first get started, you may need to sign in to your eBay account. As previously stated, you will need to use your eBay sign in name or screen name and password to do so. For that reason, you may want to write down your sign in information and keep it in a safe place.  Once you have signed in to your eBay account, you can then do whatever you want; buy or sell.

If you are interested in using eBay to shop online, to buy, you will want to start searching for items to buy.  This can be done a number of different ways.  eBay allows you to browse through their large selection of items, by detailed categories.  You can also perform a standard eBay search or an advanced one.  Searches are more likely to give you accurate, tailored results.  When browsing or searching for something in particular, you should be able to see a large number of auction listing all on one page. The information that you will be presented with at this time is the standard, bare minimum.  If you would like more information on the item in question, such as how much shipping costs or too see additional pictures, you will want to click on the link to view the detailed sales page.  Should you like what you see, follow the instructions to buy and you will have made your first purchase on eBay!

As it was previously stated, if you are interested in selling on eBay, to make a little bit of extra money, you can also do so. The only difference is that you are required to pay small fees to become an eBay seller, unlike eBay buyers who have completely free accounts.  The amount of money that you are charged will all depend on your auctions, particularly how much you list each item for, as well as how well each item sells.  To get started with selling, you will want to click on the “sell,” link at the top of the eBay webpage. What is nice about listing items for sale on eBay it is relatively easy to do. For instance, you need to choose a category for your item, make a headline for your auction listing, write a description of your product, upload pictures of what you are selling, outline shipping costs, as well as accepted forms of payments, but everything is outlined for you, in a step-by-step matter.

Whether you are interested in becoming an eBay buyer or an eBay seller, you can do both, in as little as a few minutes.  eBay, as previously mentioned, is considered one the most shopped at online marketplaces.  For you, this means that if you are looking to make money on eBay, you should be able to do so and if you are interested in buying on eBay, you should be able to find millions of products to choose from.

Get Started on eBay

You’ve probably heard about how much money can be made on eBay. With dreams of quick riches and easy money, you are probably ready to jump in with both feet – right now! The best thing you can do if you are serious about making money with eBay, however, is to slow down. In fact, just stop for a minute. Don’t rush straight in. Take your time, and do it right.

eBay has over 100 million members. Think about that number for just a minute or two. When you get your eBay business set up, that is how big your customer base will be – instantly. 100 million people – 100 million people who are just waiting for you to get set up and running so that they can throw money at you! Well, not quite. It is true that there are over 100 million members, but at this point, they don’t know that you exist. In fact, no matter how well you do on eBay, most of them will never know that you exist. 100 million is a very large number.

The most successful eBay sellers started out as buyers – and you should too. This will give you a sense of how everything works. It will also show you how things are from the buyer’s side of the fence. Let’s call this period of time ‘consumer research.’ You are literally studying how eBay works, from a customer’s point of view. You may not realize this, but this eBay buyer experience will actually make you a much better seller – right from the very start.

Really pay attention to the customer service you receive from the buyer. Think about how you want to be treated as a buyer, and take notes. Take your time during this process. Interact with the sellers. Get involved in hot auctions to see what they are like. In your spare time, start making notes about the hot items that you see. These notes will come in handy later.

eBay works just like any other business. You have to determine what people want to buy before you can hope to be successful. There are very specific items that sell really well on eBay – you just have to figure out what those items are. There are many resources for finding out this information. Start with the lessons that eBay offers to their sellers. Strongly consider attending the eBay University as well. This is the next step in the process. After you have had the eBay buyer experience, it is time to learn how to be an eBay seller.

Read all of the information eBay provides for you at the site. The information is free and you will learn a great deal from it. Take full advantage of this – before you start setting up your first auction or your eBay store! By reading through all of the resources, you will avoid making numerous mistakes that so many before you have made. This is another step towards building a successful eBay business. Once you’ve made it through the learning process, you should know everything you need to know to get started with a money making eBay business of your very own.

Becoming an eBay Seller

Are you currently looking for ways to make money online?

If you are, you may have come across eBay. eBay is known as an online auction website.  What is nice about eBay is that just about anyone can become an eBay seller, including you.  What does this mean for you?  Essentially, it means that if you have items to sell, you can do so on eBay; while making money at the same time.  So, if you are currently looking for ways to make money online, you are urged to examine becoming an eBay seller, as there are a number of reasons as to why you should.

Perhaps, the greatest reason as to why you should become an eBay seller is because there are no minimum auction requirements.  For you, this means that you could just test the waters if you wanted to.  If you were unsure as to whether or not you should rely on eBay to make money, you may want to sell a few items that you no longer need and see how it goes.  Should you like the eBay selling experience, you could continue on.  However, if you were not satisfied with the results, you could stop selling on eBay right away. eBay is flexible to all sellers, particularly those just getting started.

Another reason why you should become an eBay seller is because it is easy to do.  eBay has a relatively easy learning curve.  When listing an auction or selling an item on eBay, you are given step-by-step instructions on how you will list your items and get your auctions up and running.  As long as you follow the instructions provided to you by eBay, you could have your items listed online in a matter of minutes.  It has been said that those with minimal computer experience are also able to sell on eBay, without any problems.

Speaking of the items that you want to sell on eBay, you will find that you can sell just about anything on eBay, within reason.  There are only a few restrictions, which include inappropriate content and such.  For a detailed list of prohibited eBay items, you will want to visit eBay’s help center.  Despite a few restrictions, there are a large number of items that can be sold on eBay.  These items include real estate, vehicles, clothing, toys, movies, books, gaming consoles, computers, beauty items, and much more.  Whether you are looking to sell something that you have in your home, something you bought from a yard sale or a thrift store, or something that can be dropped shipped from another company, you should be able to do so online with eBay.

The ability to make a profit is another one of the many reasons as to why you should become an eBay seller.  What is nice about eBay is that they let you set your own price for your auctions. In fact, if you would rather outright sell your products, instead of selling them in a bidding auction, you can do so with “Buy It Now,” listings.  The ability to set your own prices is one the many reasons why you should check out eBay.  Having the ability to set your own prices increases your chances of being able to make a profit on eBay.

If you would like to become an eBay seller, and as previously mentioned there are a number of reasons as to why you should, you will want to register for a free eBay account.  Although your eBay account is free, it will cost a small amount of money to sell items on eBay. Your eBay selling fees will all depend on how much you will list your items for, as well as how much they sell for.  Despite having to pay small fees, eBay is more than worth your time.  The least that you should do is giving it a shot. As previously mentioned, if your eBay selling experience doesn’t go as well as you had originally hoped for, you can stop and look for other online money making opportunities.

eBay Selling – The Pros and Cons

Are you interested in becoming an eBay seller?

If you are, you are definitely not alone, as eBay has become a relatively quick and easy way to make money online. Each day, a large number of individuals use eBay to make extra money from home and a few lucky ones are even able to make enough money to support themselves or their families. Before you jump on the eBay selling bandwagon, you are advised to take a few minutes and examine the pros and cons of selling on eBay.

One of the many pros, or plus sides, to selling on eBay is the fact that is it is relatively easy to do. Once you create an eBay account, you can start listing items that you have in your possession for sale right away. When doing so, it is also easy to do. eBay has a step-by-step process for listing items for sale, in traditional auction formats or buy it now formats. In fact, eBay also has a program that lets you compile your auctions, with pictures and descriptions, when you aren’t even connected to the internet. As soon as you connect to the internet, you can begin to upload your listings and have them start right away.

Another one of the many pros to selling on eBay is that just about anyone can do it. You don’t have to have big fancy, expensive items to sell on eBay. In fact, a large number of those selling on eBay are just selling items that are taking up space in their homes; items they don’t want anymore. If you are interesting in becoming an eBay seller, but you aren’t sure as to how much you can depend on eBay for income, you may want to think about testing the waters. You can do this by listing the items have you have around your home for sale. Items that tend to sell relatively well are lots, or groups, of toys and infant clothing.

While there are a number of pros, or plus sides, to selling on eBay, there are also a number of cons, or downsides, to doing so as well. One of the biggest cons or downsides to selling on eBay is the competition. As it was previously mentioned, a large number of internet users have started using eBay to make extra money or even make a living. This is what leads to multiple auction listings for the exact same items. While this is nice for the eBay buyers, it can hurt you as a seller. When the supplier is higher than the demand, you may not make as much money off of your items as you had originally hoped to, if they even sell at all.

Another downside to selling on eBay is the fees associated with doing so. In recent years, eBay has redone their fee structure, often to raise their fees. Although these fees are still considered relatively low, they could put a damper on your profits, which alone are sometimes hard to come by. Of course, there are ways that you can the most out of eBay fees. For instance, if you have a “hot seller,” you could start your auction out at a low price, as the fees are less for doing so; however, you are taking a gamble, as you never have any guarantees as for how much your items will sell for. Perhaps, the unknown is one of the biggest downsides to selling on eBay; you never really know if you are going to make money or even if you will end up losing money.

As you likely already know, the decision as to whether or not you want to become an eBay seller is yours to make, but, when making your decision, you are advised to keep the above mentioned points in mind. With a relatively equal amount of pros and cons, you may be wondering what you’re best option is. For more accurate information, you may want to think about testing the eBay seller waters, as you are able to sell whenever you want, with no minimum auction requirements.

Branding and Marketing Expert, President, Chris Brown Presents Three Internet Marketing Workshops at Annual Conference …

Three workshops; “How to Use Your Blog to Attract New Customers” “Social Media Strategies that Market Your Business” and “Use Video to Improve Your Marketing Results” were presented at the 15th annual NNEP Conference by Chris Brown.

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) March 19, 2011

Chris Brown, President of Marketing Resources Results, Inc. and publisher of the award winning blog Branding and Marketing, presented three Internet marketing workshops at the Annual Conference of the National Network of Embroidery Professionals (NNEP) in Columbus this past month.

“Online videos, blogging and social media offer new effective marketing tools that can really help build awareness for a small business with very little additional cost” explained Brown. “To be most effective, business owners need to develop a strategy for their participation so that they are able to connect with prospects and realize sales growth for their company.”

The three workshops were “How to Use Your Blog to Attract New Customers” “Social Media Strategies that Market Your Business” and “Use Video to Improve Your Marketing Results.” Each 90-minute session offered concrete tips and take away tools that attendees could quickly use to understand and participate in social media marketing for their business.

“Our participants were thrilled to have Chris Brown as a presenter and I’m still hearing wonderful feedback about all they learned” said Jennifer Cox, NNEP President and conference organizer. One workshop attendee from Michigan had this to say: “I attended two of Chris Brown’s workshops and I learned a lot. Now I just have to go home and start to practice.”

In the blogging workshop Brown explained how blogs allow a business owner to connect with their readers. A business blog provides the opportunity to tell a story, incorporate video and photos to demonstrate a point, and invite readers to share in the discussion or offer their opinion. Brown suggested that attendees start by reading blogs and joining in the discussion via the comment section. When a business professional is ready to start their own blog, is in important to determine their primary topic and the target audience they hope to engage. Many business owners find blogging to be an inexpensive, effective way to interact with potential customers or clients.

The video marketing workshop included six ways business owners use video to improve their marketing efforts. It included a hands-on session where owners created their own video for posting on the Internet. Attendees also learned about creating a YouTube channel for their business, incorporating a live link back to the primary company website and using key word phrases to assist with search engine results.

Creating a strategy for online marketing participation starts with determining what the business professional wants to accomplish. Once a goal is determined, the social media vehicles that will best achieve those goals are the ones to participate in regularly.

“Marketing is such an important part of our members’ business and Internet marketing is a complex topic,” said Cox. “I know our members that attended these marketing workshops left with a better understanding.”

Most annual conferences invite speakers from within their industry to present topics that impact their members’ business. However, marketing on the Internet is now recognized as a valuable and powerful vehicle; regardless of industry and therefore, more and more conference organizers find value in offering Internet marketing workshops.

“An annual conference is a great place for learning about emerging marketing tactics” explained Brown. “Often members of an association or organization don’t have the time away from work to hear about these new tools. At a trade show or business conference, they have time to invest on their business for growth. It is a great place to learn from marketing experts about how to use the latest marketing tools.”

Brown publishes Branding Marketing for business professionals with an interest in improving their branding and marketing results. The online publication has over 850 articles and a subscriber base of almost 9,000 readers. Read more about marketing tools at the Branding and Marketing website, http://brandandmarket.com.

Internet Marketing Profit Centre (IMPC) Releases E-Course to Educate Website Owners about Converting Visitors into …

7 Secrets To Websites That Sell e-course Released offers SME
business owners a quick start guide to point them in the right direction
to make sure they have a website that sells. Anyone who has a business
website or who is considering setting one up should register for this
e-course and take advantage of its information.

SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Internet Marketer Fiona Lewis from the Internet Marketing Profit
Centre (IMPC) has created a two week e-course to educate website owners
about the essential elements of a website that converts visitors into
prospects.

“is that all of the strategies covered are generally simple
and easy to implement , but they can make the most incredible difference
to the conversion rate of the site. However, the majority of people
don’t even know about them.”

There is a lot of emphasis in the Internet Marketing community
about getting traffic to websites, but Lewis believes just as much
emphasis should be placed on setting up a website in such a way that it
compels website visitors to take the desired action , whether that be to
sign up for a free giveaway or newsletter, pick up the phone to make
contact with the business or make a purchase online.

The 7 Secrets To Websites That Sell e-course is designed to
educate SME website owners in seven easy to follow lessons.

“Imagine if in a few minutes a day over two weeks you could
discover the key to making your website bring in fresh leads… new
customers… more profits… every single day” says Lewis.

Lewis believes that websites should have one sole purpose: grow
your business and make you money. Yet most business owners do not
experience this type of online presence.

This is because many website designers do not have an
understanding of what it takes to create an effective and profitable
online presence. Yes, the site may look great , but if it is not making
you money, then it is essentially an expensive advertisement sitting in
cyberspace.

“What website owners will find when doing this free e-course”
says Lewis, “is that all of the strategies covered are generally simple
and easy to implement , but they can make the most incredible difference
to the conversion rate of the site. However, the majority of people
don’t even know about them.”

knowledge of online marketing.

Visited: 496Not rated


by TJ Philpott
March 25, 2011



The internet marketing strategies you use should not only be effective but also help you increase efficiency as well. Operating an internet marketing business involves many functions and tasks so wherever and whenever you can increase efficiency you should strive to do so. The name of the game online is to first increase your web presence so that you have an audience to which you can promote. Gaining this exposure is very important, does take effort and can be time consuming, so you want to work as efficiently as possible

Here are 5 strategies you can use to expand your web presence in order to promote your internet marketing business to others in an efficient manner!

Blog

Blogs are great platforms off of which you can promote an internet marketing business as well as interact with visitors to get their feedback! A blog also offers you the opportunity to add fresh content, and easily, as much as you like. This is important since search engines love fresh content and you in turn will love both the exposure and traffic you will receive as a result!

Submit Articles

Submitting articles online is another great way to not only increase your web presence but also build valuable back links to your site. Most directories have high page ranks and when they publish your article they also are linking to your site. This happens because you have placed a link to your site in the resource box of the article you submitted! In addition you can use your articles as blog posts as well which helps you increase efficiently and that is what it is all about!

Free Giveaways

You can offer free giveaways on your blog or on a squeeze page you are using to build a list. You are building a list right? Of course the ‘gift’ you offer will once again be linked to your business site and you will also want to encourage others to share the gift with their friends. Remember the articles you are submitting? Well you can direct people to your squeeze page with the link in your resource box and here again you will be boosting your web presence and increase efficiency at the same time!

Signature File

As you navigate around online and get involved in social sites, forums, sending emails or even blog commenting always leave a signature file. This simply reflects your name, company name and of course your link. This is you calling card and you want to leave it everywhere when the opportunity presents itself!

RSS Feeds

Make available on your blog an RSS feed tab so that people can easily follow your updates. Be sure to place this tab prominently so that visitors do not have to go searching for it therefore it is recommended to position it at the top of the page! The easier it is for someone to subscribe to your feed the greater chance of their return and this will lead, hopefully, to loyalty which then leads to referrals. Now you have one simple tab that will help expand your web presence on a viral basis! Can you spell efficiency?

The internet marketing strategies reviewed above all target helping you to increase efficiency when working online without sacrificing effectiveness! To be successful an internet marketing business must establish a web presence in order to have an audience to which it can promote. Equally important is that when working online you must make the best use of your time since there will be many demands for it. Working as efficient as possible but in an effective manner is therefore the key. The strategies reviewed above serve as suggestions as to ways in which you can accomplish just that!
