Making money on EBay and feed your family well, is a very reachable goal and a way to control your financial future. I mean with any business, you get to set up by your own decisions how much money you make, and especially with an online Internet giant like EBay that is already bringing you all the customers you will ever need, through their name brand and their millions of dollar advertising budget. So my dear friend you want to capitalize on EBay 's great marketing system, for they rank in page one of every search engine, they are on television, newspapers, magazines, and just about every website you visit, as a banner advertising. Again you would not want to start any online business, and you are unknown and nobody could find you, so you see making money on EBay and feed your family well is already half done for you.
But how do you begin making money on EBay, and how do you even begin to set up. Well my friend there are a couple ways of doing that. And first and easiest way is to open a free account with EBay on their website, and it is pretty self explanatory. And after that you will want to open a free account with Paypal, and the reason is you want to use that account and have it connected through either your credit card, or your bank account. And each time you make a purchase Paypal can just deduct it, or even better when you start selling your items, the buyers can easily pay you using that same Paypal account connected as well through their credit card or their bank account. And Paypal will send you a debit card that you can use to withdraw your money, if you don 't choose to have your payments transferred to your bank account.
The next step in making money on EBay and feed your family well, is to browse at a few different categories because you want to see how other people have set up their items for sale, like description, pictures, wording, sales pitch, and other information. Also you want to read a little bit about EBay rules, policies and procedures. You want to get to know your way around the site and understand their feedback system, which you must show to your buyers that you are a competent EBayer whether as a buyer or a seller. And take some time to understand how to buy items at a fixed price, or how to bid and buy at auctions. And believe me EBay makes the whole process real easy, just play around with the site and bid on a few cheap items just so you understand the process.
Now start looking around your house for a couple of items you would like to sell, because you want to get some experience in making money on EBay and feed your family. Start setting up your page when you have an item for sale, and just follow the instructions and prompts. And when you are selling, decide whether you want to sell at a fixed price or as auction style, and please make sure you have a digital camera that takes decent pictures and then you can upload them to your computer and then on EBay. And remember when selling, a picture is worth a thousand words, so the more pictures you have the better you will do. And EBay will give you tips on selling as well, and in your pictures do try to show details of corners, damages, scratches and any imperfections. You want to be clear with your information and your detailed pictures, because the last thing you want is to finish selling and only to have a dispute with your buyer, because what you sold them and they received in the mail, is not exactly what you described or show in your pictures. So be upfront about all.
So by now you have a pretty good idea on how to use EBay and make good money to feed your family. Now let us look at how you are going to make that big money we have been talking about, you have to decide what you are going to sell. Whether it 's going to be electronics, golf items, clothing, sports items, and so on. And try to find out what 's hot out there, what people are buying that they always want, and please remember this tip, people are always going to buy what they want and hardly ever what they need. Look at cars for example, ask yourself do people buy the most basic car with just 2 doors just to get to and fro, or do they look for the stylish cars, the one that people will talk about and the one they want to show off?.
Next step in making money on EBay and feed your family is to find items that people will want to buy, and if you don 't have enough great items yourself like a comic book collection, or a baseball card collection, or some antique items, and even some hot rod cars. Then you must find a place like overstock.com where you can get items that people love, and buy those items at wholesale and then resell them on EBay. But just a tip for you, people just love electronics like cellphones, ipods, video games and so on. And people will even buy those items used, if they are in good condition, so that might be a route you may choose to take. And then you may not want to spend money up front, and then have inventory that you have to move and have your cash all tied up.
Then you may look at the business of wholesale dropshipping, and it is where wholesale companies will work out a deal with you where they have all their items, and they tell you what their wholesale price is, and then you can hike it up to whatever amount you want. And then you put that item up for sale with all their pictures, and when someone buys that item, they pay you your price, and then you pay the wholesale company their price and you keep the rest. And the company will ship that item to whatever address and whomever you want them to. So the advantage of that is you don 't use your cash to buy anything and fill up your garage and lose money and sleep if you can 't sell something. The wholesale company keeps all their inventory, and all you do is place them on EBay as a store owner either at a fixed price or auction style, and then make your sales to make money on EBay and feed your family.
Do keep in mind that the most expensive part of running a business online has been done for you, and those two are advertising and traffic, and EBay has got both. So all you have to do is pick items that people love and are looking for, and to do that you do a search on google for something that is called " Google Keyword " and type in whatever you are interested in selling, and see how many people are looking for that kind of item on a monthly local search, and you want to be somewhere around 20,000 people a month or more for each item or group of item you are planning to sell, and again either buy it wholesale in bulk with your money, or do wholesale dropshipping.
And to make even more money on EBay and feed your family, there are even more secret tips that you need to know about, and you must get your hands on those well hidden secrets on how other people just like you are making 100,000 or more a month selling on EBay. And Remember in anything that you do or get involved in, it is always about techniques and secrets of that industry, so please dear friend don 't learn by losing money, learn from expert like myself and others, and maybe you 'll spend $40 - $50 learning to make thousands, when otherwise you would never know about it.
And always be a great business person, by buying your products as cheaply as you possibly can and sell as high as you can. Also do not, and I repeat do not waste your time buying little items that will make you just $10 profit, no dear friend I am on your side because you trust me as your expert, do buy and sell items where you will make a minimum of $80 to $300 per item, so that your business could grow by leaps and bounds.
