Getting Started in Ebay Marketing

getting started in ebay marketingHave you been to eBay and seen the kind of money people earn? It ranges from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars per month.

I bet you’ve never bothered to find out how many PowerSellers there are; if you bothered to check, you will find just a handful.

Now think about this: each one of them earns at least $1000 per month as that’s’ one of the criteria set by eBay for becoming a PowerSeller.

And for Silver PowerSeller, it goes up to $3000 while Gold PowerSellers rack up at least $10,000 a month. Platinum sellers make $25,000 while the highest level sellers, the Titanium PowerSeller, makes at least $150,000 per month in sales.

This picture should give you an idea about the potential of making it on eBay. Interestingly, a good number of those PowerSellers never set out to create huge commercial enterprises on eBay. They started by selling a few personal belongings and continued to expand to several products.

Many people’s full-time job is merchandising products on eBay, and a good number of them have been doing it for years now. It’s unbelievable but true. Once the merchandise has been purchased, the rest is pure profit for them. There are no employees to pay and rent to pay for office premises.

You can still earn a descent side income if you still want to retain your job. During week nights, you can pack customer purchases and then drive them all to the local post office to be shipped every Saturday. There are not many things you could do in your free time that can come anywhere near to earning you that kind of money.

Ebay doesn’t care who you are or where you live, or about your looks. Some PowerSellers are very old individuals, while others are young. Some live in very remote areas where agriculture is the only viable source of income.

With eBay, all the roadblocks erected by the world are removed. No one will interview you for a selling job on eBay and you won’t have to drive to and from work every day.

The eBay business model is not so complicated: if you can get something inexpensively to sell, then eBay is the place to sell it. This is not hard given that bulk purchases at wholesale earn great discounts.

Ebay Marketing Basics

You know all about eBay now and how the business model runs. But one of the most important things that will determine your sales is marketing.

Ebay marketing is nothing more than a well written description for each of your products. You need to sit down and craft winning descriptions for your products before listing them on eBay. It entails giving every minute detail about the item while portraying it as the best of its kind. It’s about creativity without being erroneous. Remember, honesty pays a lot when it comes to good feedback.

On top of a winning bid, your listing should have clear, flattering photos of the item on sale. In fact, photos are usually your first and only chance at making a good first impression. Therefore, be careful when handling pictures.

Basically, the right starting price plus a winning description coupled with spectacular photos make up the perfect marketing tool for your listed items on eBay. The only thing left for you is to collect your payment.
