The Most Important Thing You Must Do to Succeed on eBay

It's difficult to succeed on eBay if you have negative thoughts. It's a FACT that you are more likely to succeed on eBay if you have positive thoughts. The main difference between those who succeed and those who don't boils down to HOW THEY THINK.
Most people have a natural tendency to worry about failing. This means they are focussing on failing, rather than succeeding. So when something goes wrong in their eBay business, they think: "I knew it wouldn't work for me" and give up. To overcome this, successful eBay sellers visualise the result that they want to achieve as if it has ALREADY happened. This means that they are focussing on succeeding. So when something goes wrong in their eBay business, they don't give up. They just try again.
Visualising success is a very powerful tool that many successful people in all walks of life use to great affect and you can use it too. Here's how...
First decide what your life will be like WHEN you achieve success on eBay. For instance, if wealth is your aim, what income will you have when you are successful? What house will you live in? What car will you drive? What holidays will you take? How much leisure time will you have? What will you do in your leisure time? What charities will you support? Write everything down to describe YOUR dream lifestyle.
It is very important that you ONLY write down what's important to YOU - what really EXCITES and MOTIVATES you. If you don't care what car you drive - don't mention it. After all, wealth might not be your aim. You may just want to be able to work from home so that you can care for your children or an elderly or infirm relative and earn enough from eBay to pay the bills. It is YOUR dream lifestyle that you are describing.
Now decide on a realistic time scale to achieve each part of your dream lifestyle. Without a time scale, there will be no sense of urgency. Putting a time scale on your DREAMS turns them into GOALS. Then re-write your dream life as goals, stating the date that you will achieve each goal, in the PRESENT TENSE, as if you have ALREADY achieved it. Here's an example for someone who wants to achieve a high standard of living and quality of life from eBay:
"It is 31 December 2010. I have paid off my $10,000 credit card debt and am earning $5,000 a month on eBay and have just handed in my notice at work.
It is 31 December 2011 and I have repaid my $100,000 mortgage from the profits in my eBay business.
It is 31 December 2012 and I have an annual income of at least $100,000 from my eBay business. I work 3 hours a day Monday to Friday. I live in (describe your house) and each year I go skiing and spend the summer in..."
Remind yourself of these goals EVERY DAY by reading them to yourself, preferably out loud. After reading each one, close your eyes and PICTURE yourself actually achieving that goal. Concentrate on how that success makes you FEEL. See yourself living your ideal life. This is what will keep you focused and make sure that you don't give up.
Everyone is motivated by pleasure or pain. Each time you hit a hurdle in your eBay business you will deal with it because you will realise that the pain of having to cross that barrier is less than the pain that not achieving your goals will bring, or is less than the pleasure that you will get when you succeed.
I don't know of ANY successful people who don't have well-defined goals that they are committed to achieving, as described above. You can ignore the above if you want to, but if EVERY successful person does it, you are LESS likely to succeed if you DON'T do it!
OK. Now you have the motivation to succeed but it may still seem like a daunting task. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you walk 100 miles? One step at a time. How do you set up a successful eBay business? One step at a time. Focus on achieving the first step. Work at it until you achieve it. Then focus on the second step. And so on. Keep at it until you achieve it. Then you WILL have a successful eBay business!

Top 10 Tips For New Auction Sellers

AuctionTip #1: offer as many payment options as possible.
Here are the most common payment types offered on auction sites:
PayPal - the one practically everyone uses
Cash, Check, or Money Order
Credit Card
AuctionTip #2: Make way for Spam
Make sure you use a separate email address for any auction account you open up because you WILL get spam and most likely, a lot of it. Make sure you check your inbox, however, because you will also get mail from customers asking questions.
AuctionTip #3: Be Honest and Courteous
Make it a habit of telling the truth. If your late getting your customer's product shipped, send them an email telling them. Don't like about your product's condition. If there is a flaw make sure it's clearly stated in your listing. Your customers will thank you in the end..
AuctionTip #4: Smile... Click
Always take pictures of the items you are selling. This will make you and your auction much more credible. Try to make the item look as nice as possible from as many angles as possible. Use a solid background and good lighting and make sure your picture are clear.
AuctionTip #5: Send your customers a thank you note
Be sure to send your customers a thank your email when you have received payment. Include a telephone number you can be reached at in case they have any problems and kindly ask them to leave you feedback with a link to the feedback form. Most customers forget to leave feedback and doing this, you kill two birds with one stone
AuctionTip #6: Don't forget to make a sales policy
This is one very important aspect of an auction listing and it can save you if things go south with an auction. Your sales policy should nclude things like shipping terms and other rules that you'll use. For example: do you only ship on certain days? Be sure to state things like this in your policy and post them in every listing you create.
AuctionTip #7: Use Delivery Confirmation
This serves two purposes. One, it will save you the hassle if a customer denies receiving an item when they actually have, and two, it allows you to give your customer a tracking number so they can keep track of when their item will arrive. This is especially important to do with valuable items.
AuctionTip #8: Send Customers The Auction Number
When emailing a bidder for whatever reason, it's a good idea to include the auction number. This will keep you from getting confused if you have multiple auctions and will keep your customers from getting confused if they are bidding on multiple items.
AuctionTip #9: Become an expert on your product
Know about the items you are selling. The more information you can provide on the item you are selling, the more credible you become in the eyes for your customers. This will also make it easier to quickly answer any questions that may arise.
AuctionTip #10: Use Strong Key Words in Titles
There are tons of items for sale on auction sites, and one of the most effective ways for people to find things is to use a search engine. In order to make it easy for someone to find your listings, you will want to pack your listing title with as many related keywords as possible. For example, if you're selling a TV, you don't just want to put tv in the title. You want to include the brand, type, size, etc.

Maximise Your Profit Per Sale – What to Sell to Make Money on eBay

Maximising your profit per sale on eBay is the key to making money online. You would be surprised at how many individuals will waste time and effort selling items that will only ever make a few pence of profit, and then wonder exactly why they are struggling to make ends meet.

Obviously not every auction that you list will end incredibly successfully, but by setting a goal that you will never make less than a certain profit per sale, you will be well placed to reach your potential earning target. For example, let's say you decide that you will never make less than £5 profit per auction. That means that you need to be able to source your goods at a price of at least £5 less than you are able to sell them for. Having this figure in mind will help you to calculate if a potential product is worth pursuing if you can't make an initial purchase of as low a price as you would wish.

In considering what to sell to make money on eBay to achieve that target, you should consider the following options:

Large vs. Small Profit

Some particularly large eBay sellers will work on the principle that if they can sell a lot of an item cheaply, they will still make as much profit as those selling a few items for a larger profit per item. Once you achieve market domination within a particular niche this could be a possibility. However, as a new seller on eBay, you could soon find yourself disillusioned when you find yourself needing to sell hundreds of items every day to earn back your initial expenses.

Expensive vs. Cheap Items

Another area of consideration in debating what to sell to make money on eBay is that of the choice between expensive and cheap items. By expensive we mean items that would cost more than £100 to your prospective buyers. Although there is potentially a greater profit per sale to be had from more expensive items, unless you have a lot of capital to dedicate to your eBay business you will struggle to make any purchases of stock to sell. Therefore, the better strategy is to start with cheaper items, remembering the minimum profit per sale price already decided, and move gradually to more expensive items as and when you make enough money to do so.

The Secret - Source Cheap Stock!

It's not rocket science. To maximise your profit per sale, you will need to find stock as cheaply as possible. When considering what to sell to make money on eBay then, you may find your decision swayed by what you can get your hands on for the most affordable price.

There are a multitude of sources that could help you to find your perfect products cheaply, such as wholesalers, dropshippers and even charity shops and car boot sales. Keep your eyes peeled for a bargain and before long you will be making sales and meeting your profit per sale target.

Sell on eBay Successfully - A Simple and Powerful Strategy

When you start to sell on eBay it is important to realise that you will not make millions overnight (despite what some sources might say). However, given time and the appropriate strategy you will soon be making more than a modest income, providing you with the opportunity to pack in your day job to work for yourself for a living. Do you want to pick your own hours of working while making enough to save worrying about the bills? If so, keep reading because this simple and powerful strategy will help to get you started.

To sell on eBay successfully, it is important to set yourself small and attainable goals that you can meet within a realistic period of time. Your first goal, for example, should be to sell one item for a minimum of £5 of profit. When it comes to selling on eBay you can either try to sell a lot of products for a small profit, or fewer products for a larger profit. The latter strategy is more commonly successful in drawing in more money more quickly.

Now, consider that your next target is to make a modest £140 a week as a second income to your regular day job. That is just £20 a day or just four of your £5 items every day. Realising that you only need to sell four items every day helps to restore some reality to your dreams. And once you have reached your initial goal it is time to up your goal, perhaps to £50 a day, or £350 a week. With that target exceeded you can up your target again, and so on and so forth.

Ensure that the current target that you are working toward is on display each time you sit beside your computer to list your new items. A post-it note beside your monitor will help to motivate you toward success each time you collapse into your chair at your desk, even after a long and tiring day at the office.

Short term goals are absolutely essential to keeping you motivated to success as you sell on eBay. However, you should not forget to set yourself a longer term goal so as to point your flourishing eBay business in the right direction. If your dream is to quit your job to work for yourself then make this your end goal. If you wish to exceed your current income, you guessed it, make this your end goal. Although the shorter successes will keep you motivated and help you to start to make money on eBay, the longer term goal will keep you from becoming satisfied with your shorter term goals.

No matter how much experience you have on eBay, or on the internet at all, you can certainly sell four products on eBay each day. By setting realistic goals, any novice can start their journey to success, so why not take some time now to do the maths and prepare for your life to change.
