We’ll it’s February tomorrow peeps. Where the hell did January go?!
I hope your sticking to your 2013 plans and have reached your targets for January. If not, have a look at what you haven’t done (if it’s not important scrap it) and get it finished in February
One thing I’ve been concentrating on this month has been finishing my eBay store’s so that they can just run in the background and then I can kick on with my product creation. It can be time consuming getting everything complete on time. This time round I mind mapped the whole thing out with particular emphasis on the product, the pricing, the niche and the marketing set up.
I want my stores to incorporate my Automatic Auction Traffic philosophy but with more improvements. So I’m just testing everything at the moment. I’m breathing new life into them hoping I can get to Top Rate Seller status sooner rather than later.
While it is possible to earn a full time living on eBay, it is a mistake to depend solely on eBay for your income. You could be using your eBay auctions to generate a huge amount of business for other products and services! Many people, however, fail to fully utilize eBay’s resources to this end.
eBay has over 100 million members, and they gained those members by continually running major marketing campaigns. Essentially, they do your marketing for you. But you have to help yourself as well. The key is to drive people to your auction page, which in turn can be used to drive traffic to your website.
You can sell many different items on your website, including items that are up for auction at eBay! This is a fabulous way to earn income that does not rely on eBay auctions. You can easily accept website payments with a Paypal account, so there is no need for an expensive merchant account!
You are not allowed to include the website address of an outside website on your auctions – you are, however, perfectly welcome to place a link to your website on your eBay ‘About Me’ page. Invite your bidders and potential bidders to view your about me page, and watch the website traffic roll in!
This one strategy can be amazing but only if you have a website that sells the same kind of products as your store. And keep them at a similar price if they are the same product because customers will question why your products are cheaper on your site.
The key here is to sell lower end items on eBay, direct them to your website where you have your higher end products placed. The great thing about making sales on your site is that you are not paying the additional eBay fees.
Hope this tip helped and this is something you can use to your advantage.
Thanks for reading.
