Ebay Marketing 101: Everything You Need to Know About Buying and Selling on Ebay HTML version

Getting Started on EBay
You’ve probably heard about how much money can be made on eBay. With
dreams of quick riches and easy money, you are probably ready to jump in with
both feet – right now! The best thing you can do if you are serious about making
money with eBay, however, is to slow down. In fact, just stop for a minute. Don’t
rush straight in. Take your time, and do it right.
EBay has over 100 million members. Think about that number for just a minute or
two. When you get your eBay business set up, that is how big your customer base
will be – instantly. 100 million people - 100 million people who are just waiting for
you to get set up and running so that they can throw money at you!
Well, not quite. It is true that there are over 100 million members, but at this
point, they don’t know that you exist. In fact, no matter how well you do on eBay,
most of them will never know that you exist.
100 million is a very large number. The most successful eBay sellers started out as
buyers – and you should too. This will give you a sense of how everything works.
It will also show you how things are from the buyer’s side of the fence. Let’s call
this period of time ‘consumer research.’
