When looking for ways to generate internet income, I recently spoke to a very successful ebay powerseller to find out how almost anybody can generate internet income and build a life changing business starting with £100. After a little arm twisting and bribery she finally spilled the beans.
The following is a condensed account of what I learned.
One of the most difficult things for any new ebay business is - how to find a good profitable niche. The answer is simple, copy the success of powersellers.
Type in some keywords of items you are interested in, find a powerseller who sells this and other related items and look at their feedback. This can give you a good idea of how many items they are selling, but as only around fifty percent of buyers leave feedback, they have probably sold double the amount feedback suggests.
Try to sell products with a value of £10 plus and always post to Europe, as this will greatly increase profits for very little extra work.
Check out the completed items feature to find the actual selling price of any product. This can be very useful if you are selling secondhand items.
Always offer some form of guarantee with every product you sell, this will give buyer confidence and increase sales
When writing your product description/listing, always give as much detail as possible and make the customer want your product. Try to add a twist or suggest other uses for products.
Quality products always sell better than slightly cheaper inferior items and if you would like to discover how to create unique products to sell on ebay using freely available Public Domain materials and resources, then take a look at The Public Domain Directory.
If you follow the above advice, you will be way ahead of most ebay sellers and have every chance of success.
