Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.

Hey everybody, my name is Nick Vulich and I just completed my newest book - eBay 2015.
 
I started writing about two years ago and it's been a real blast. Most of my books offer short, easy to read solutions to life's everyday problems. My bestsellers focus on ecommerce - How to sell on eBay, Amazon, Fiverr, and Etsy. Recently I published my first book of humorous essays - Life Without the BS. It's part biographical, part political, and just a touch on the wild side.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?

The most recent book in my eBay series is eBay 2015: 5 Moves You need to make Today to Sell More Stuff on eBay.
 
It was inspired by all of the changes occurring on eBay over the past year. For those of you unfamiliar with selling on eBay they have two major updates every year, the Spring Seller Update and the Fall Seller Update. Each time a new seller update is released there is a mad scramble by eBay sellers trying to update their listings and stay in compliance with eBay's new rules.

The spring seller update last year was a real bear. Sellers were forced to resize all of their pictures to meet eBay's new size requirements so they would display properly when enlarged. This year's fall seller update begins with a new set of seller standards. Five star feedback is no longer the goal. Instead sellers are graded based on their defect ratio (a measurement eBay has developed to enhance buyer satisfaction).

Besides the new seller updates sellers have been faced with several other challenges this year. Many sellers have seen their sales come to a dead stop when eBay hides them in search for one reason or another.

Mobile selling has also created new opportunities and challenges for sellers. It can put you in front of more sellers as buyers hop on their iPhones and tablets to make their purchases. It can also shut your listings out so mobile buyers can't see them if your listings include HTML codes or embedded pictures, thus sellers are faced with a Catch-22 of sorts - Better looking listings, or more visibility in eBay search.

eBay 2015 is an attempt to help sellers keep up with the ever changing face of eBay.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?

I hate to admit it but I write best when I'm laid back in the recliner watching TV and sipping on a Diet Coke. Just to put it out their - Psych, Family Guy, American Dad, and the Simpson's set the backdrop while I'm writing. Sometimes I'll slip in an occasional episode of Monk or Two and a Half Men.
 

What authors, or books have influenced you?

When it comes to writing advice Steve Scott is probably one of my favorite authors. His books are easy to read and packed with advice.
 
My favorite books have to be the historical novels of Kenneth Roberts written back in the thirties and forties - Arundel, Northwest Passage, Boon Island, and Lydia Bailey. They're great stories, historically accurate, and totally absorbing no matter how many times you read them.

I also have to thank my friend Mike for introducing me to Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings way back in my early college days. I recommend this series to everyone.

What are you working on now?

Right now I'm looking at writing more short humor, history, and essays. For next year my ecommerce focus is going to be on mastering Amazon and Kickstarter.
 
Do you have any advice for new authors?

Read everything you can. Write as much as you can, and don't limit yourself to just one subject or genre. More importantly, don't be afraid to fail. Not all of your books are going to be successes, and some of them can sit there for six months or a year before they finally take off and start selling. It's just the nature of the beast.
 
What is the best advice you have ever heard?

I hate to admit it but most of the advice I listen to I take from Family Guy, the Simpsons, andAmerican Dad. Thank you, Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening.
 
What are you reading now?

Steve's Scott passed out a great book tip, and I've been underling passages as I read through it -Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. It's loaded with solid advice for Indie authors.
 
I just finished reading Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Asian. It's a fascinating look at the life of Jesus, early Christianity, and the first century BC. Next on my list is Killing Jesus by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.

What's next for you as a writer?

By the middle of the year I'm planning on switching my focus to historical writing. Subjects I see in the offing are the Spanish American War, Theodore Roosevelt, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and more.
 
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?

Easy choices -
 
Northwest Passage by Kenneth Roberts.
Candide by Voltaire.
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
Jacques the Fatalist by Denis Diderot

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.

Sold on ebay years ago and I enjoyed it, but they were always changing things and I was having a difficult time coming up with product to sell so I quit. Thinking about starting up again and this book was inspiring with many good ideas for selling and pricing.

Lots of great info. I like that it's updated. I purchased this as a Kindle edition because I wanted to get the most up to date info.
I realize that the book covers a huge amount of topics about selling on Ebay and it's nice that the author is able to cover as many unique categories as he does. I'm in the middle of re- reading several chapters as I update my Ebay strategies. I may have missed it; but I was hoping he offered a newsletter or blog to keep more up to date on Ebay changes.
Thanks again for a good read.

There are probably plenty of folks that will think this information is a no-brainer, but for the newbies that haven't developed their brains for selling on eBay, like me, they will find this info very helpful. I appreciate that he doesn't just tell you what to do, but he explains why you should do it this way. Mixed with a little humor and the book was easy to read and follow the instructions. I liked his ideas, his reasons made sense, and I'll be implementing his tactics starting with my next eBay listing. There's also a section on other sites you could choose to sell on and he gives you his personal track record of those he's used, or he passes along the opinions of others he knows that's used the sites. All in all, I'd recommend the book to those that are still wondering what they could be doing better to increase their conversion of viewers and watchers to buyers. Happy selling!

As a beginner on eBay, this was very useful and practical. He did a good job helping figure out how to set up an ad and what to think about. I especially appreciate the emphasis on full disclosure. I've found it to be very useful so far. I think what I really appreciated was that while he did share his successes he didn't do it in a way that was completely full of himself. I've read a couple of others who seemed more interested in impressing the reader than in helping them. I didn't get that sense here.
