If you’re like me, you’ve probably accumulated so much extra junk around the house that you have absolutely no use for anymore. In an effort to clear up some extra space you may have also tried your hand at selling your stuff on eBay at some time or another. I’ve done this as well, with varying results. After trying to sell half a dozen items I came to the realization that there really is a method to making decent profits from eBay, but the learning curve is pretty steep. This is when I started to get serious about really making some big money off eBay. I wanted to learn as much as I could so maybe I could turn it into a part, or even full time job, selling things on eBay one day.
I picked up a few books on buying & selling eBay products. Some of which were actually helpful and showed me how to use auction templates to spruce up my auctions, as well as making sure the photos were high quality, as people always want to see an accurate picture of what they’re going to purchase. These methods worked well for a while, until I found out that I was running out of things to sell, which meant my earnings were about to come to a screeching halt.
I decided it was time to find a place to get products that I could re-sell on eBay. Strangely enough, I looked on eBay itself to find a way to do this. What I found was someone was selling an online “eBay Auction Kit” program that gave you everything you needed to get started with your own eBay store. It gave you places to get thousands of items you can sell. The Auction Listing Wizard to enhance listings. Complete auction training and an eBook library. Basically everything you need to make money quickly. At $99 bucks it seemed a bit steep, but I figured even if I could learn just a few new tactics, and most of all, find the secret places to buy products that I could resell, then it would be worth the investment. I was still a rookie after all, so I was thirsty for the knowledge that the eBay Power Sellers never tell you. Let me tell you, I didn’t know how right I was.
The eBay Auction Kit was absolutely what I was looking for. It came with a few eBooks that I didn’t find particularly helpful, but the rest was full of information and tips on setting up listings and getting the absolute most money for every single item you sell. That really is the key. Maximize profit on each item, and you don’t have to sell nearly as much.
The kit also clued me in to some of the “hidden” tools that are available to all eBay sellers, but you just don’t know about unless you stumble across them. Geo-Targeting auctions, proper use of Reserve and Buy-it-Now, as well as how to write your auction descriptions so they are guaranteed to get people excited and bidding on your items.
In the end I put into action over half of what I learned with the eBay Auction Kit, and I started making very good money to supplement my regular job. I’m not going to tell you that I started making $10,000 per month, but I’ve been averaging in the $2000-$2500/ month range now for quite some time, and keep in mind, I do this part time. That’s the beauty of it. Once I learned a few tips & tricks, I was able to create my auctions so much faster and with much better quality that I was actually working on them less and making more money.
The moral of the story here is, if you need to make some extra money, eBay really is the perfect resource. You can try selling some of your stuff around the house to get your feet wet like I did, or you can get on a program that really gets you right into the action and maximizes your time and the profitability of your auctions from day one.
I highly recommend you check out the eBay Auction Kit at the link below. You will not find a better eBay tutorial anywhere. The program is so successful that you can try it out for only the shipping and handling cost of $1.97. From there, you can go as big as you want. The earnings are only limited by how much time you want to put in. I wish you luck on your new eBay selling journey.
