So here you go! I’ve opened up my Old ebay website again, It’s really good timing because I’m really working hard to make my ebay biz AWESOME!! I’ve struggled with it for many years, some months would be great and other months terrible. (I’ve been full selling on ebay for 5 years now.)
I’ve figured out the problem. When things are going great, I’m listing everyday and that leads to more sales the next month.
But here’s where I stumble. I’m making great money from my past work, so I say to myself, “Hey I’m good, the bills are paid, I’ve got money to burn… Well, I don’t need to list today.”..next day… “I feel like crap, I’ll just take another day off…” that may go on for a whole week or month, when I only list less than 100 new items for the whole month.
Then my sales go in the tank. I’ve got to list all the time, every day if possible, even if it’s just 5 items and when I’m in a slump that’s what I’ve been doing and this month of April I’ve got myself a new set of goals and I’m going to list 400 new items. I want to make $6000 this month. Let’s see if I can do it. I can make a solid $3000 without even trying with all my 4000 items I have listing, which is good and if your just getting started list as much as you can, it will be worth it in the long run to have a stock pile of items. And get a numbering system in place so you can find your items.
April Update so far- I’ve listed 111 new items. I’m also running a sale each week that always ends on Sunday night. I just do the whole store at a certain percentage off each week and my Sundays have been awesome.
Update on me- I wrote a romance book for my 50th birthday gift to myself last year. I’m now a self published author. Cool Beans! You can pick up a copy on amazon for kindle or paperback, if you like that sort of thing, I used a pen name in case it sucked. Lol!!
Now I’ve got to get my 15 items listed for today!! Then take pictures of 15 more. I’m making my goals higher than I need so when the day comes when I don’t want to work, It will be ok. I’ve not listing 400 items in a month in a very long time. I really want to hit this goal. I need a new ebay building and to fix up my house some, so I want the extra money. I just need to get off my butt or hubby is going to start that cricket biz again. I’m trying not to let that happen. I like setting around in my comfy clothes all day. I don’t want to smell like crickets again. No way No how!
Wishing you the best!
