You list a few items for sale, wait for the money to roll in, rinse and repeat. If only it were that simple. The truth is: Anybody can put a few items up for sale on eBay, and score an occasional sale now and then. Being able to consistently sell items for a profit is not as easy. What usually happens is new sellers decide to unclutter, and sell a bunch of unrelated items as they clean out the garage, basement, or attic. Some sellers break up a book collection or sports card collection and piece it out on eBay. The thing is once they finish selling the items they have they can easily find their sales have started to burn out. They don't know where to turn next. Other sellers can never seem to bring it all together. They have a great product line, they may even have the best price; but somehow, the sales don't seem to follow. Let me share a little secret with you. People love to buy from an expert. They want to know the person on the other end of the transaction knows what he's doing, and can answer whatever questions they may have. They want to know they can trust you. In essence, they want to know you're a subject matter expert in your product line. Let me give you an example, I started selling on eBay fifteen years ago. My user name was Fifties Topps. That's all I sold. 1950's Topp's baseball cards. I sold a lot of them, in just about any condition you could think of. Some of them were like new; others were just plain ugly with pinholes, or chunks torn out of them. 1954 and 1955 were my favorite sets, and I specialized in them. Most days I would have a hundred or more auctions running at the same time. Over time people noticed what I was doing. Many of them emailed me questions. What's the proper way to grade a card? What's the best way to store your cards? How did get started collecting? You get the idea. Because I specialized in selling fifties baseball cards people saw me as their go to person in them. They told their friends about me. They bought cards from me. They asked me questions. Eventually I started writing eBay guides. Many of them delved further into the questions customers were asking me. Before I knew it some of those guides received five hundred, a thousand, even twenty-five hundred page views. The amazing thing about the whole process was in less than six months, I went from being an eBay newbie to an eBay expert in 1950's baseball cards. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Success on eBay seems easy enough.
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 has been a real blast. Most of my books offer short, easy to read solutions to life's everyday problems. My bestsellers focus on e-commerce - How to sell on eBay, Amazon, Fiverr, and Etsy. Recently I published my first book of humorous essays - Life Without the BS. It is 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 cannot 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 am laid back in the recliner watching TV and sipping on a Diet Coke. Just to put it out there - Psych, Family Guy, American Dad, and the Simpson's set the backdrop while I am writing. Sometimes I will 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 are 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 am looking at writing more short-humor, history, and essays. For next year my e-commerce 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 is 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, and American Dad. Thank you, Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening.
What are you reading now?
Steve's Scott passed out a great book tip, and I have been underlining passages as I read through it - Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. It is loaded with solid advice for Indie authors.
I just finished reading Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Asian. It is 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 am 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
