When it comes to eBay selling, the big question on the lips of everyone who wants to make money on eBay is, "What do I sell?"
Derek Gehl of The Internet Marketing Center recently launched the definitive guide to buying and selling on eBay, and he's in no doubt that finding profitable items to sell is the biggest challenge for newcomers to eBay selling.
"Many people start by selling old household items or clothes," he says. "And that's a great way to get some experience of eBay selling. However, you can't build a long-term, profitable eBay business selling the stuff in your basement. You'll simply run out of items!"
The good news, though, is that there are plenty of things to sell on eBay. It just needs a little thought.
"Finding items to sell on eBay isn’t as hard as you might think," says Gehl. "One eBay selling tip I always give to newbies is to start by looking at your own interests and passions. If there's a subject you like and know about, then try to find products within that subject area.
"You can also contact manufacturers directly, keep an eye out for liquidation sales, and even find products on eBay itself that you can resell for a profit."
But the secret to making money on eBay doesn’t just lie in finding lots of items to sell. Budding eBay sellers also need to know how to set up their eBay auctions for maximum exposure and maximum profit. That's because there are lots of people out there who want to make money on eBay and earn a slice of the $86 million spent on the site every day. So there's a lot of competition.
"The best way to beat the competition is to get eBay selling tips from the experts -- Powersellers who have been making money on eBay for years," according to Derek Gehl. "That way you can follow their strategies and start profiting from eBay selling almost immediately."
And the popularity of the eBay marketplace shows no signs of abating, meaning the competition is increasing. So the sooner you start learning, the better your chances of success, according to Gehl. "Whether you're interested in eBay buying or selling -- with more than 200 million eBay members, the possibilities are endless," he says. "If you’re not on eBay, you’re missing out."
