Overview

How can being a subject matter expert turbo charge your eBay sales?

Success on eBay seems easy enough. You list a few items for sale, wait for the money to roll in, rinse and repeat.

If only it were that simple.

The truth is: Anybody can put a few items up for sale on eBay, and score an occasional sale now and then. Being able to consistently sell items for a profit is not as easy.

What usually happens is new sellers decide to unclutter, and sell a bunch of unrelated items as they clean out the garage, basement, or attic. Some sellers break up a book collection or sports card collection and piece it out on eBay. The thing is once they finish selling the items they have they can easily find their sales have started to burn out.

They don't know where to turn next.

Other sellers can never seem to bring it all together. They have a great product line, they may even have the best price; but somehow, the sales don't seem to follow.

Let me share a little secret with you.

People love to buy from an expert. They want to know the person on the other end of the transaction knows what he's doing, and can answer whatever questions they may have. They want to know they can trust you.

In essence, they want to know you're a subject matter expert in your product line.

Let me give you an example, I started selling on eBay fifteen years ago. My user name was Fifties Topps. That's all I sold. 1950's Topp's baseball cards. I sold a lot of them, in just about any condition you could think of. Some of them were like new; others were just plain ugly with pinholes, or chunks torn out of them. 1954 and 1955 were my favorite sets, and I specialized in them. Most days I would have a hundred or more auctions running at the same time.

Over time people noticed what I was doing. Many of them emailed me questions. What's the proper way to grade a card? What's the best way to store your cards? How did get started collecting?

You get the idea. Because I specialized in selling fifties baseball cards people saw me as their go to person in them. They told their friends about me. They bought cards from me. They asked me questions.

Eventually I started writing eBay guides. Many of them delved further into the questions customers were asking me. Before I knew it some of those guides received five hundred, a thousand, even twenty-five hundred page views.

The amazing thing about the whole process was in less than six months, I went from being an eBay newbie to an eBay expert in 1950's baseball cards.

Meet the Author

Short easy to read solutions to your eCommerce problems.

Most of my books can be read in under an hour. The information in them can be put to work immediately to help you sell more products on eBay and Amazon, services on Fiverr, or eBooks on Amazon and Kindle.

Selling on line isn't a mystery. It doesn't even have to be difficult.

It's really all about getting started. Many people I've talked with have this crazy fear about putting things up for sale on eBay and Amazon. They think they have to do this and do that; they worry they don't know enough about what they're doing to do it right; they wonder what they should sell; and they worry about whether they can even do it or not.

That's where my books come in.

They take you hand-in-hand and walk you through getting started selling on eBay, Amazon, and Fiverr. They show you how to market your Kindle book.

You're still going to make mistakes, and get lost now and then. But, you can always come back to the books for another nugget of advice, or a little bit of inspiration. Believe me, I've been selling online for fifteen years, and I've made just about every crazy mistake out there. I just never let any of them stop me.

My goal is to help you over the speed bumps, so you can be more successful from the get-go.

What are you waiting for?
