Book Description

Selling on eBay isn't a game.


You need to have a plan.



eBay 2014 walks you through what it takes to sell on eBay. It answers all of your questions, and gives you ideas about how to get started and grow your eBay business.

Do you ever wonder how some sellers can grow a strong thriving business, while others barely scrape by?



Many times, I've watched two sellers as they are first starting out on eBay. Both sellers offer the exact same products and prices, yet one business skyrockets to the top of the charts selling thousands of items per month. The other business struggles to sell ten or fifteen items per month. They might even have the same basic look to their listings. On the face of it, it doesn't make sense.

Why does one eBay seller prosper, while another falls behind?



Is it a matter of luck? Does one eBay seller catch all of the breaks, while another is stuck holding doo doo? Believe it or not, many struggling sellers believe this. They think it's all a matter of luck. But, you and I know better. Don't we?

Sellers who succeed on eBay play by different rules



They don't leave anything to chance. They know that success requires a plan.You don't just move from Point A to Point B. You need to make it happen. And, that's what this book is all about. It gives you a strategy for selling on eBay.

You will learn



  1. How to write titles that draw buyers into your listings and help them find what you are selling

  2. How to take picture that show buyers what they need to know to say "This is the item I'm looking for!"

  3. The anatomy of a great listing. What you should say. How you should say it. What not to say.

  4. Why you need to stop guessing at prices for your items, and how to determine realistic prices that customers are willing to pay.

  5. The smart way to ship your items so you can get your packages to your customers safely and on time.

  6. How to rock customer service, and motivate your customers to leave five star feed-back every time.

  7. how to deal with eBay's constant string of updates and changes


Still not convinced?



Consider this.

  • There are over 128 million active buyers on eBay.

  • Last year they spent over $83 billion dollars on everything from paperclips to new cars and custom helicopters.

  • Hundreds of thousands of small sellers are making $500, a $1000, even $2500 every month working part time from their kitchen table or garage.


How about you?

Are you making your fair share?

If not, this book will help you understand - selling on eBay isn't a game. You need to have a plan.

Get serious about your eBay selling

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Interview with Nick Vulich
 
Question. Why eBay? There are all sorts of ecommerce sites on the web. Why do so many of your books focus specifically on eBay?

Answer. I think eBay offers the best shot for new sellers to gain traction selling online. eBay is easy to get started selling on; it has a built in customer base of over 250 million eager buyers; and you can sell just about anything.

Question: That last part is the million dollar question, what are the best things to sell on eBay if you want to make money?

Answer: That's the great thing about eBay. It really doesn't matter what you sell. There are so many people on the site, with so many interests, that you can sell just about anything if you package it right.

Question: Can you give us a few examples?

Answer: Think cell phones, consumer electronics, and video games. eBay has hundreds of sellers moving these same items. The problem is these are almost impossible fields to compete in. You're up against the likes of Best Buy and the other big box giants.

Question: So what do you do?

Answer: Smart sellers narrow their focus down and serve a niche.

     Do you service and sell used cell phones? There's a huge market for refurbished phones on eBay. If you have a ready source of phones, and can restore them to factory settings you're going to do well.

     Let me give you another example. My Kindle went crazy last fall and wouldn't charge. None of the computer stores in town wanted to look at it. The one guy I did find who was willing to give it a shot wanted eighty bucks, but he wouldn't guarantee anything. I searched eBay and found a guy who would reset the charger stem (return postage included) for $34.95. When I checked his feedback he was doing a booming business, and he wasn't the only one. Five other sellers were thriving doing the same thing.

     In my case, I take old magazines libraries and book stores are begging to get rid and harvest articles and pictures from them that sell for twenty to fifty dollars each. In fourteen years of doing it, I've made over thirty thousand sales.

Question: But aren't there too many sellers already? How can the average guy hope to find a new niche that will make them money? Isn't it a little like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack?

Answer: Ideas are all around you?

     Do you run a local screen print shop? You can do short orders of six, twelve or twenty-five t-shirts and cater to the small business market. Are you an artist? Open up an eBay store and put your masterpieces out there for a larger market to find. Is there a local business in your area that everybody just loves? Test the waters and put a few of their products on eBay.

     If you're really at a loss for what to sell, take a drive around town; open up the phone book; follow your kids around for a day and listen to what gets them excited.

Question: Earlier you mentioned you can sell anything if you package it right. What did you mean by that?

Answer: You've got to be creative in your listings. That means crafting awesome titles loaded with keywords; your pictures need to showcase what you're selling and make people want to buy it; you're item description needs to make customers drool for more.

     I keep thinking back to a designer I use on Fiverr. She describes her book covers as being so realistic customers will want to reach out and lick them. Are auction listing so enticing customers will want to lick them. If not, you probably want to go back to the drawing board.

Final Question: What's the best way to get started?

Answer:  Dive in head first. So many people talk about what they want to do. They put all of these obstacles in their way. I'll do it when I can spare a thousand dollars. I'll start when I'm on vacation next summer and have the time to do it right. I need to get more information before I get started.

    Listen to me. That's all a bunch of horse-hockey we tell ourselves to keep from trying. The best way to start doing something is to do it. Make a few mistakes. Who cares?

     Read my books. Learn how to sell on eBay. Whatever you do, don't over think it. It's not rocket science.

     What's the worst you can do? Loose a few bucks. Maybe make a few extra bucks. You'll never know until you give it a shot.

From the Inside Flap

The one thing you can say about eBay is that it's always changing.

I've been selling on eBay since 1999 and in that time the company has made dozens of changes that have affected my business - some of them good, some not so good. The best advice I can give sellers is be open to change; experiment often with new products, services, and apps; understand that big changes come to eBay twice a year- in the fall and Spring Seller Updates.

Sometimes the seller updates are easy to adjust to. Perhaps a few minor category changes, or perhaps new shipping and handling or return policies. The 2013 Seller Updates pushed many sellers to the limit. Fees changed and became tied to the eBay store levels sellers have. New picture requirements went into effect as sellers made a mad scramble to get their listings updated.

The final outtake as usual is a better buyer experience.

To thrive and grow in 2014 your eBay business needs to be fresh. You need to be nimble and able to react quickly, no matter if you're responding to eBay mandated changes, or competitive pressure from other sellers.

That's what all of my books are about.

They teach you the basics. They share stories about how other sellers got started and grew their businesses. They give ideas for sourcing products and writing strong product listings. No BS, no filler. Just lots of good useful information you can use over and over again, whether you are new to eBay or have been selling here for years.

Whichever one of my eBay books you choose to read, please know they have all been updated, and reflect current information and policies for selling in 2014 and beyond.

More About the Author

Short easy to read solutions to your eCommerce problems.

Most of my books can be read in under an hour. The information in them can be put to work immediately to help you sell more products on eBay and Amazon, services on Fiverr, or eBooks on Amazon and Kindle.

Selling on line isn't a mystery. It doesn't even have to be difficult.

It's really all about getting started. Many people I've talked with have this crazy fear about putting things up for sale on eBay and Amazon. They think they have to do this and do that; they worry they don't know enough about what they're doing to do it right; they wonder what they should sell; and they worry about whether they can even do it or not.

That's where my books come in.

They take you hand-in-hand and walk you through getting started selling on eBay, Amazon, and Fiverr. They show you how to market your Kindle book.

You're still going to make mistakes, and get lost now and then. But, you can always come back to the books for another nugget of advice, or a little bit of inspiration. Believe me, I've been selling online for fifteen years, and I've made just about every crazy mistake out there. I just never let any of them stop me.

My goal is to help you over the speed bumps, so you can be more successful from the get-go.

What are you waiting for?
