Make money using Ebay, info

Why does this work?

Friends, the economy is shifting very rapidly and a lot of people are not up to speed.

It may sound crazy to earn money online while you sleep, but it works for good reasons.

Here’s why:

         Business and sales depend on communication with customers and suppliers through advertising.    That’s always been true, but reaching target audiences has been difficult.

         Once upon a time, the only way a business could get customers was by using signs, and even that was limited to a local area.    In those days sign painters had it really good.     No sign, no sales.     That was also the era of door to door salespeople.    Wow, try to imagine that today !

Then, there are newspapers , magazines, and radio, which have become very powerful marketing tools.    They became the staple in advertising for a long time.  Then came TV and at first, only a few channels were available, now there are hundreds.

        Problem is, TV and magazine advertising is VERY expensive, has to be planned way in advance,  and there’s still no guarantee anyone who sees the ads are good buyer prospects.

The internet has changed all advertising forever.

        Why?  Because the internet can reach highly specific categories of customers, who are on a page because of a search, and most important;    the internet advertisements can track, time,  and measure responses to advertising.

      That’s an advertiser’s dream, knowing their ad is being seen by someone who is truly interested in a particular product or service.     Today, you can advertise your business online through many different methods and know that most of the people seeing your ad are very good prospects.

And the price for that incredible, specific, tailor made advertising?   Much, much cheaper than TV and print media.    

That’s why advertisers are leaping into cyberspace advertising  like never before.

Some other advantages of advertising online ?

Speed.    You can place an ad now that will be seen now, or in just a few minutes, by a lot of people.    

Range:  “Viral” marketing, where one of your ads gets spread around all over the place by other people, for free.

Price:    Cost per targeted audience is very reasonable, providing you are specific enough in your ad and keywords.

Reach:   You can reach around the world, literally, with an online ad.

Shipping:     It’s possible today to ship things almost anywhere, and have someone pick it up at your home or office and take it far away to your customer.

And now, one of the biggest factors of all for online income

Downloadable Information Products, or DIP’s:    You can sell something that requires no inventory, no warehouse, no sales staff, and virtually no cost to  create, just make another electronic copy and send it on its way.

Since the cost of production and delivery is extremely small, the price can be set very reasonably to attract buyers,  AND there’s still enough profit to allow seller and agent ( affiliate ) to both make a huge percent of the total sale.

That is a revolution in business, my friends.   It’s happening now and will be accelerating in years to come.

       And YOU can benefit if you understand what’s going on and how to take advantage of the changing economy.

     Please read information on this site, click on various links and do research.    Almost anyone can find a way to make at least SOME money online, even if they like their current job.

Ebay, fast cash

What do I do if I’m really low on money and need cash FAST

Okay folks,      I know how it feels to be poor, believe me.

First thing, collect yourself, there are things you can do to make some cash soon.     There are a number of things that you can do, not just one thing.

Step one

Do you have a bank account?    If so, go online to Paypal, and set up an account with them.  Paypal asks for a bank account that you can use to transfer money to and from.   What happens is you create an account so you can get paid online from anywhere by anyone who has a paypal account or credit / debit card.    You need that first so you can collect the money you’re going to make.     Look at these option and see if it’s something you can do.

Idea 1

Selling something you got for free on Ebay

Find some stuff to sell on ebay.      If you think you don’t have anything, think again.     Just about everything sells on Ebay, and sometimes you can sell stuff right away, with a BUY IT NOW price to your Paypal account that you set up.  They pay for shipping, too, so don’t worry about that.

Look around your house, yard, ask friends or neighbors, and get some stuff together.   What you are looking for is something with fairly high value ( 30 or more dollars ), that you can easily ship.    It can’t be real bulky, like a bicycle or furniture.    Lego, watches, old pens, clocks, useful small appliances, stereos, CD players, games, quality clothes.     You can research on ebay what stuff sells, so go onto their site and set up an account.     Generally, the higher quality the merchandise, the more likely it will sell fast for more money.  In other words, the name brands.

Just because it’s big or bulky doesn’t mean you can’t sell it on Ebay.   Just make sure it’s worth a good penny, worth shipping or delivering.  You can always lists something as “local pickup only”, great for cars, machinery, furniture, etc.     And, you will be surprised what people in say, Japan, or China, will pay in shipping to get things like vintage cameras, tube amps, etc.     Do some research.

Take some DECENT pictures of the thing you’re selling

I can’t tell you how many times I got a great deal on something because the photo was terrible, but I knew its value.     You don’t need a pro photographer or camera.    Use a decent point and shoot digital camera, use daylight, or near a window.   Have an uncluttered contrasting background, and take several photos, not just one.  People will buy what they can see.   Give them a good view from several angles.   If it’s a small item and you need a closeup, don’t expect a cheap digital camera to do macro shots, although many of them have a setting for that.   take a photo at a proper focus distance, in high resolution mode, and later crop it down to size so you can see details.

Follow through on the Ebay listing process, load up a few good photos, write a full, informative, and accurate description, and select a price.     To find a price, type is some searches on Ebay for your item, see what’s out there selling, and look at the prices.    Look at completed listings ( ebay has a box you can check to see ended auctions  ).

If you need money really fast, list your item with a very attractive BUY IT NOW price.    You will likely get a fast sale if it’s something in demand.

Selecting the item to sell.

List your best and biggest value items first, get them going.  Then work on the smaller stuff.     They will sell too, but it can take as much time and effort to sell a small item as it does to sell a bigger item.

Choose something you can manage to ship and pack easily.   UPS can pick it up, or you can take it to the post office.      Things that are not fragile are even better, like clothes, or baseball gloves.   You don’t want to have any broken items or your reputation on Ebay will suffer.     Always leave our customers feedback.   Most of them will respond in kind.

Now, watch your auctions, like little baby trees.

See how many visitors and watchers there are.     For every few “watchers”, there will be a   “bidder”.      Try adjusting the price on slow moving items.   If it’s a hot item, you’ll have watchers or even bidders quite fast.

I often use a 10 day auction.   You have to pay a tiny bit, like 40 cents, and wait 3 more days.    It always pays off with more bids and higher sale price.    Include a BUY IT NOW price if you want a fast sale.   Don’t worry if the bids seem low.   A lot of  people but in a minimal bid at first, but they are watching it.     Many times, the last few minutes of the auction is where the price really spikes up.   If you have more than one bidder, that’s a really good sign.

People are looking for bargains, so don’t ask for the moon.

If you need fast cash, sell stuff fast for good prices and just go get more stuff.  There’s PLENTY of stuff around to sell on Ebay.   You can get a lot of stuff free if you know where to go:   yard sales, rummage sales, town dumps ( Yes, people throw away thousands of dollars worth of valuables stuff. )

I have a friend who used to make 10,000 dollars a year selling stuff he got at the dump, before it went into the crusher.   That income saved his house and his marriage, and allowed him to spend a lot of time with his young children.

Take a look around your home, then go onto Ebay.  Start making some money, my friend.   You have hidden cash all over the place.
