I just got an email from a potential buyer of my eBook, “Fishing For Niches“ requesting information about my blog and methodology:
“Hi Deb — I have sold a few things on eBay, books and stuff. I even did consignment selling for a moment in time. The leads cost me too much so I never really made much of a profit so i gave up.
I really like eBay, but I am lost as to what to sell, shipping, etc. The kind of stuff you hear everyday.
I see a potential for a good second income for me if I could find things to sell.
Your sales page fell into my lap so to speak. It was an upsell from someone else. I downloaded and read your free report and it intrigued me.
I have no problem making the full purchase of your ebook, but I need to know if this is the real thing. I have purchased other ebooks that promise the moon and I am in no mood to do it again.
Can your ebook get this regulative novice eBayer to become successful?
I like eBay and really see that I can make a good second income from home if I can learn what to do to be successful.
I found other “gurus”, but honestly I can’t afford their products right now.
Can your ebook and blog really help me?
Tell me why I should purchase your ebook. Thank you for your time.”
After pondering what exactly to say for a few minutes, I sent the following reply….
“Yes, I am the real deal. My book teaches you a very easy method to research AND find niches on eBay. The only thing I can say to you is, read my blog… read it “cover to cover” so to speak. If you are able to learn from my posts and think that I have something worth reading, then you will enjoy and learn from my book.
It doesn’t take a guru to teach you what to sell and what not to sell… all it takes is a bit of researching skills, a little creativity and the drive to be successful. I am NOT selling an easy button. You STILL have to source, list and fulfill what you sell on eBay. BUT, if you follow my methodology you can start to focus on higher auction ending prices, thus allowing you to work smarter NOT harder.
Selling on eBay is NOT about listing 100 items a week. It is NOT about having thousands of items in an eBay store. It IS about understanding what sells, what doesn’t and knowing that BEFORE you ever leave the house to go shopping.
Hope this helps!”
In my eBook, “Fishing For Niches” I not only teach an easy research methodology, but I also teach you how to make that research portable. If you are going to be successful in your eBay sourcing, you need to have the correct tools to help you focus, help you buy smart and help you decrease your overall sourcing time.
On this blog, I try to provide you with good, sound advice and information. But there is only so much that I can provide via this electronic medium.
What if you could get niches researched and ready made buying guides handed to you?
After months of brainstorming, fiddling and designing, I have finally come up with an idea for a portable niche sourcing guide that I hope you will find value in.
Everyone’s “Sweet Spot” is different, but I am going to focus on items that sell for $25 and higher or $50 and higher as the target “Sweet Spot” for each particular guide that I create.
The next thing you need to understand is these guides are meant to be carried with you when you go shopping for eBay resale inventory.
These guides are meant to be printed out and placed in your own personal notebook/binder.
In each guide, I provide you with all the information you need to make appropriate buying decisions, including ACTUAL successful final eBay prices realized for each item over the past two weeks (at the time of creation).
Because prices do tend to fluctuate a bit—although there are no seasonal, clearance or “out of stock” items in my guides—I date each guide with the month and year that I originally researched these items and created the written guide.
Remember, you make your money in the BUYING, not the selling. By researching what to buy before you ever leave the house, you are going to save yourself from a lot of wasted money spent, a lot of clutter and a the possibility of burnout or feeling overwhelmed.
Since this is a brand new product idea for me, I’m looking for some feedback on the format, content, layout, and any niches that you would like to have covered. I have created two brand spanking new guides, and I am branding these guides as “Niche On a Hook.”
For my first two guides, I am covering Cake Pans — of course! — as it is MORE than apparent that I really, really, really like that niche.
BUT I am also going to start working my way through the baker’s dozen list of profitable eBay items you can source for FREE. For the first guide from this series, I am covering sea/beach glass.
I have included a sneak-peek image of the sea/beach glass guide in this post to whet your whistle.
Each guide contains….
- 10 full color fully researched niche items.
- 10 additional items that you can research on your own (using my methodology).
- “Getting Started” PDF explaining exactly what you need to do in order to get full benefit and value from your guide.
Since MY original payment and delivery method did NOT work well, I have teamed up with Debra Conrad to create a brand new blog to house our guides –
“Niche On a Hook” eBay Buying Guide & “What To Sell For Money” Guide.
