Researching eBay: What Sells On eBay?

by AuctionGuerilla 2 comments »

I admit, playing blackjack and roulette can be fun, but it’s a mugs game. People gamble because they get pleasure fromresearching ebay risk and the thrill of potentially winning.

In business, we don’t want to gamble. Sure when your are successful and wealthy you can do want you want with your money and even gamble it away if you want to, but your business shouldn’t be a gamble.

I’ve heard some gurus say you can never tell which products are going to stick and sell well on ebay and to a certain extent that is true. If you throw enough spaghetti against the wall, some is bound to eventually stick.

However, there is a way to make sure that when you are trying to sell new products on ebay that the odds are in YOUR favor.

It’s called RESEARCH

And yes that might sound boring and doesn’t give you the instant thrill and satisfaction that playing blackjack can give you, but doing your research will prove far more profitable in the long run than getting a quick fix that lasts only for a few moments.

When you research ebay markets and find out what unique products are selling in different niches, you can turn the odds in your favor because your more likely to have a best selling product on ebay if you sell a similar product or better product in a small targeted niche that you have researched. The deeper you dig the more you will discover and that will turn the odds in your favor.

You start with what is already selling. You find out what is in demand without too much competition and chose to sell in a niche where certain types of products are in demand and you can easily join the selling crowd in that niche and pick up sales.

Do this a few times over and you have a few products selling well with some profit you can reinvest into your business.

Is it easier to ‘carpet bomb’ ebay and list lots of products hoping one or two will stick or is it better to do a little research before hand? Let me know what you think by posting a comment below..

150% Or 40% Efficient

by AuctionGuerilla 2 comments »

It’s usually only when we hit a wall or a crisis point in our lives that we actually pull out all the stops. What I mean is, ebay businessit’s only when we are really hurting that we as humans change radically and act.

It’s only when we have no other option but to put in 150% into something that we really need to work in order to survive. When disaster is looking at us in the face,  something inside of us happens and makes us do things that we wouldn’t normally do.

The reason is that..

At the opposite side of the spectrum our survival instincts are complacent. Our survival instinct is a powerful force but it’s lazy, it doesn’t like to work unless it really has to.

However, we never know when disaster might strike next. You can pay your bills and mortgage this month because you have a job that you’ve had for years, but what if you were made redundant and lost your job tomorrow?

What would you do?

It’s at times like this when we are forced out of our comfort zones and have to act. I can tell you I’ve been in that kind of situation several times and looking back, it’s at those critical moments when you really do put in all the effort required to make things work again.

And something kind of strange happens. It usually works out for the better.

That’s when good things emerge.

Of course this relates to your eBay business and internet marketing.

It’s at those times when you can really lay the foundations of a successful eBay business. When you’re frantically thrashing around researching new products and niches desperate to make things work.

To create a real income with eBay that can support you and your family and to build a business so that you can simply work for yourself, you need to put in the effort.

Most people do the bare minimum like list a couple of products that everyone else sells and wait for the customers and the money to magically appear. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that.

Building any business whether it be on the internet or offline takes time, investment and a considerable amount of effort. I wish there was another way but there simply isn’t.

If you can flick the switch on your survival instinct and focus the incredible power into a new project or goal you want to achieve, that’s when you will be able to establish a business that REALLY works and pays dividends for years.

If you think you really can flick the switch and focus the power of survival then your ready to build and make a business succeed.

What do you think? Have you ever been in a similar situation before?

eBay Adcommerce PPC Program Replaces Featured First

For those of you who list on eBay using the featured first upgrade, eBay have yet again changed the game and as of June 29 2010 eBay will be discontinuing this feature and you will no longer be able to simply buy your first place position in eBay’s best match search.

Instead, eBay have proposed that sellers use eBay’s pay per click program adcommerce. If you sign upto add commerce your adcommerce ads will be displayed above or below the main search display area. I have noticed eBay are currently testing this and move ads around a bit to supposedly test the best area for the new adcommerce ads.

You’ll find by using adcommerce you will be charged every time a browser clicks on your adcommerce ad. Will this really replace the benefits of featured first for sellers or is it another ploy to drip more money from your bank account into eBay’s? Only time will tell and eventually I predict adcommerce will have been extensively tested enough to replace featured first but that could take time..

All the more reason to join my healthy profits club and discover how to boost your listings in eBay’s best match search.
