Choices have to be made in life if you want to change the way you live and if others are doing this the eBay way – then why not you. Without doubt we all want the same things out of life and that being our health and money. Becoming an eBay seller can give many people the lifestyle they crave so much.
eBay offers an opportunity to earn extra cash when it suits you. Unfortunately people shy away from the sheer thought of running their own business which is sad really. Hundreds of people are missing the boat by not looking into the eBay (Or Amazon, for that matter) opportunity that can change their whole way of life.
Becoming an eBay seller is an option to be considered if you are seriously thinking on turning your life around. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain on top of the satisfaction of being your own boss.
If you have decided this is the route you are going to take to earn extra cash by becoming an eBay seller then you have made a positive move in securing your future and I congratulate you.
Remember to catch up on the basics on how to start selling by following the advice supplied by eBay, the most competitive market in the world. Also stay tuned to my blog (or even sign up) to be updated on the progress of my new ebook, coming out soon, which will undoubtedly sky rocket your eBay sales.
Once up and running always treat your eBay business as a business and conduct matters like a professional. Professionals in their eBay empires are experts because they have had a lot more practice. Don’t worry; there is plenty of time to get to that stage. Never cut corners and operate on the cheap, you are out to gain custom not lose it. Financial gains should be reinvested back into your business. This is how eBay sellers run their successful businesses.
When it comes down to promotional activities and advertising of your product/service you are guaranteed of sales if done correctly. Your product has to be described in the best descriptive way. Give your prospective customer a run down on every little detail on what you are selling this will make a huge impact on getting those sales. Remember your images, a picture paints a thousand words.
You will hear me say this over and over again, be friendly in your approach when dealing with potential buyers as you are looking for repeat orders. Try to simplify all correspondence like payment methods or even offer to help them if they are new and not sure of how things are done after winning an auction. Your customer will feel comfortable and begin to trust you as a worthy eBay seller with your offer of assistance. The way you handled and conducted the sale along with your friendly approach just may have secured yourself a regular customer.
Firstly start building up a reputable reputation – this will have your feedback scaling to enormous heights. People make judgement on the feedback scoring system of the eBay Seller when buying. No matter how good your product and fabulous glossy photos appear – if feedback is poor say through lack of communication etc, then say goodbye to sales.
Remember by becoming an eBay Seller there are rules and regulations that you have to adhere to. The rules are there for the safety of the buyer and seller. It is a good chance you may not like or agree with a number of them – but remember it is in every ones best interest why these rules have been implemented.
One of the nice things apart from meeting friends from all over the globe on eBay is instead of being part of eBay you now own a share with your very own business empire.
