I think the most frustrating thing is that all of the books that you purchase on the subject of EBay never really tell you anything that you don't know. All the websites and blogs tell you to:
1. Check your attic,
2. Take some pictures
3. Start selling.
After you are done selling all your useless junk and if you escape that without getting a negative feedback now what do you do? How do you make money? How do you become profitable despite all the EBay, Paypal and shipping fees? There are no intermediate guide
s to help the "baby" EBayer. The E-Baby if you will. That's where we hopefully fill a void. We are that place for Affiliate Marketing, Blogging and Ebaying. Our posts will act as a history walk through as we get better at all three on-line money earning techniques. Best of all - we are completely honest. Everything we try at and fail at, we will let you know. We don't care about being embarrassed. We want to build a site where people can come and comment with their experiences as well. A community of lessons learned – which sounds better then A community of dumb-ass mistakes. Either works for us.
MEMORIAL DAY BOOM!
All of a sudden post Memorial Day the EBay site was running on all cylinders again. What we are trying to do is offer a diverse product line up so we could attract many different types of visitors to our store. By calling it a “Gift Store” and having categories with dollar ranges it feels like a place to go if you are looking for a deal. All last week we hadn't sold one freakin thing. That’s the first week I could remember not selling anything at all (out of a 76 item inventory). Read More
During slow sales we are always tempted to drop our prices to help move things forward but from our experience, it's never necessary to take a loss. If you have good enough feedback and ratings, and are not priced crazy, eventually you will sell your item.
