How To Sell On Ebay & Keep Your Shirt


Have you ever been delighted after a huge sale on Ebay. . .only to find out that your massive profit margin was whittled away by fee after fee afterfee after fee?

Ebay charged you to list your item; they charged you to add pictures; they charged you to add upgrades;they charged you to use a template; they charged youto put your auction up at a certain time; and then, on top of everything else. . .they charged you AGAIN forclosing the sale.

At this point, you would have been happy to walk away from your huge sale with the shirt on your back.But no. Paypal arrived on the scene to process your transaction for a small fee - your shirt.

. . .and there you sat at your computer, frustratedand shirtless. You were probably ready to just throwyour hands up in dispair and quit selling on Ebay.

But you didn't. You stuck with it. Maybe you haven't had any success on Ebay since then, but what mattersis that you stuck with it. And that is easily the mostimportant part about selling on Ebay: sticking withit until you get that breakthrough.

And for that, I am going to reward you by showing yousome simple tricks I have used to prevent the fee-mongersfrom extracting all of my profits. Hopefully this will help you to do the same and find your breakthrough.

The first method is using free hosting services for allof your auction pictures. If you sell a lot of small items on Ebay, this will save you a considerable amountof money in fees. If you only sell large items, this will allow you to cut back on unncessary fees on eachauction.

I personally suggest using Geocities.com for this. All you have to do is upload the pictures you want in your auctions and then then reference them in the actual auctions.

The second fee-saving method I suggest is creating or purchasing a template for your auctions. I personallysuggest learning HTML, which doesn't take very long,and using it to create your own template.

In the long run, this will save you a lot of timeand frustration, as you will be able to create the exact look and feel you want for your auctions.

However, if you don't have the time to learn HTML,you can either purchase a template online for a dollar or less or you could have one professionally-created to fit your specifications at elance.com.

Not only will this save you additional auction feeson Ebay, but it will boost your credibility as aseller, potentially raising the amount of bids youreceive--and subsequently increasing your profit-margin

The third and last method I will go over involves improving the mechanics of your auction, so you canpull just as many customers as a featured listing would, but without using one.

This is actually quite simple. All you have to dois carefully construct your title to accomplish thefollowing two goals: 1) include as many targeted, high-traffic keywords as possible; and 2) form acoherent and compelling message that will entice these new streams of traffic to click through toyour auction.

If you can achieve a better balance than what you have right now, you will notice an enormous boost intraffic. In fact, it can easily be the difference between 25 auction visitors and 250!

Some people make a full-time income buying from theauctions that get 25 visitors and then reselling withthis tactic, which gets them 250.

By now, you know what you need to do to cut a serious chunk out of your Ebay seller's fees. Put this to workin your auctions - and you could be seeing thatbreakthrough I talked about in a matter of weeks.
