One of the most important parts of blogging is to take notice of your commenters and their interest in you and your journey.
One of the most frequently asked questions I get is do I still sell on ebay? Well, yes I do, I still sell exactly the same product that I started selling in 2009 when I wrote a post about it. You can read that post here. I am now a power seller and a top rated seller with ebay, and all based on one single item that I source and resell. That item is Duplex oil lamp chimneys.
You see I was lucky enough to have found a niche, a very, very tight niche, and I get repeat sales and have regular customers coming back all the time. I was also lucky enough to have found a supplier of the product at a price I could make a profit on. It’s not a huge profit but I am happy to go for volume of sales rather than a larger profit per item.
Recently I have decided to spread my wings a bit and delve into the possibilities of selling other items on ebay. My first job was to decide what I would sell. Some years ago I purchased Stuart Turnbull’s Prints Make Profits and thought it was a great idea for an ebay product to sell. However having bought a few old and rare books I found I simply could not cut them up for the plates! I still have the books I bought at the time and really do treasure them.
Having owned an art gallery in the past I was still keen to explore the possibilities around art and prints, and recently two very good friends of mine, Steve King and Barry Wells, launched their latest product, Easy Auction Income. Their training material shows the members how they can source and sell prints without having to destroy books to do it! All you need for this home based business is a bit of time and a reasonably decent printer. You can find a link to the sales page in the sidebar if you are interested in taking a look.
As for me, well it suits what I want to do very well so I have now watched all the videos (I upgraded to the premium membership as well, the additional information in there is so worth the money), and I am now ready to start listing prints on ebay. I’ll let you all know how it goes!
Enjoy the journey.
