Overview

make money selling junk
It is easy to make extra money selling junk online, believe I know. I make an average of $200-500 dollars a week just selling junk. Their are numerous ways to get the product to sell and their are numerous places to sell these items. I was surprised when I started selling online how easy it was to sell products that are broken and need repair. I actually saw more responses for stuff that was broken, compared to new or barely used items. So I decided to make it a hobby and do it in my spare time.
First off, to find junk their are numerous places and ways to achieve this. I started by going thru my old stuff, any stuff laying around in closets, attics, and garages. I started on ebay, but ebay requires a fee and I would suggest you don't start off selling on ebay unless you have a good feeback rating already and have extra money to spend on the fee that they charge for each posting. I find that the best place to find good junk is to find out when garbage collection days are in your surrounding neighborhoods and go out around 9 pm and drive around looking for junk to sell. Also, if you post a ad to collect peoples old stuff ( you can tell them you'll clean out their basement, garage, etc.) or post ads asking for old donations and tell them that a percentage will go to a charity of your choosing (make sure you contribute if you are going this route, since charity is something that is good anyways!). You can also hit flea markets, free classifieds and pick up items people are giving away for free, and ask your friends and family for old items they don't want no more.
Next, posting classifieds and online auction listings. I suggest you start out with craigslist and local free classifieds. They are free, and you will be surprised the amount of responses you will receive. Ebay and Amazon.com and sites like these work good, but you must pay a fee and if your stuff doesn't sell, your out of the fee. I do better on craigslist then anywhere else. Now post the posting.
Some tips on postings success. First off, make a short and to the point header. If its broken, say exactly what is broken. If you want to make money quick, you need to keep stuff cheap also. I sell almost everything I find for $10-25 dollars, unless its a really good find. Most people are looking for bargains and this is the price range that gets most response. If I find 8 good items in a night, the next day I normally sell at least 4 of them and that is an average of $80 a day. Take pictures, if you don't have a digital camera, I suggest you get one with your first sells. It is a known fact that stuff sells quicker and better with pictures. People want to see what they are trying to purchase. Also, clean stuff up as best you can before taking a picture! Just be concise and to the point, list facts about item, if you don't know something, look it up on the Internet, or say you don't know. The more facts you list, the less someone has to keep responding and asking questions about the item your selling.
Be cautious when your going around looking thru people's trash. It is illegal in some areas and you can be fined. Don't go thru people's personal garbage (the bags) since alot of people don't take kindly to this. Make sure to clean up the area when your done rummaging, since this is why their are fines now in some areas since people are leaving a big mess. Make sure to park in the clear with your lights on, so you don't look like a burglar. Be wary that some people don't want you messing with their garbage, so use common sense and if you see someone around, just ask them, most of the times they will be happy to give you something that you can use.
