Starting a home-based business will save you a lot of money in terms of overhead and time normally wasted commuting. There could however be domestic issues that result in time being wasted. It is very important that you have a system in place that will enable you to squeeze the most out of your time. Read the rest of this entry

John Thornhill of PlanetSMS sent me an email about this terrific product that he is promoting. I thought it looked like a great deal, so I am sharing it with you. You see I am an affliliate for his Mentorship Monthly program (another program of his which has been a great help with our business). He says that “This is probably the most comprehensive eBay video series you will ever see, and I know it will help your subscribers.” Adeel must do a great job with his products if John is promoting him.
This may seem insignificant to you, but I’ve been working with John since February 2009. He is one of the most successful internet marketers in the world. I can tell you that in dealing with him on a weekly basis in his Marketing Masterclass that he is an honorable individual and does not promote products unless he has checked them out and has interacted with the product owner. He is always looking to help people succeed, so he shares his knowledge and products he truly believes will help others.
While this read is a bit long, pay close attention to it. This is not one of those fly by night promotions.
The $27 price is temporary so act now. The new price will be around $197. This $27 offer site will only be up for a few weeks. So if you think you’ll need this training in the next year or two, I’d jump on it for this price if I were you. But if you are rich…I guess you can wait for the price to go up. Personally, I am getting this eBay Domination Course NOW because I plan to use this information within a year and I know the product will be what Adeel says it is, because John has decided to promote it.
This is the email:
If you trade on eBay or want to start trading on eBay you simply must check this out.
Over 12 Months Ago Adeel Chowdry started work on what I strongly believe is the most comprehensive
video series showing you how to profit from eBay.
Imagine working on a product for over 12 months?
Adeel had created a ton of stuff related to selling information on eBay but then when eBay banned the sale of digitally delivered products he stopped working on his product. Until now!
I think I should leave the rest to Adeel, the creator of Spy Auction Riches. Here’s the email he sent me and asked me to forward to you.
If you just want to check out what Adeel has to say online head over to:
Woohoo…today is QUESTION and ANSWER day!
I’ve been getting tons of Q’s to I’m going to answer them here for everyone.
Question; eBooks can’t be sold on eBay any more so will your course still work?
Answer; eBooks still *CAN* be sold in certain formats on eBay. Whilst the digital ban DID kill a lot of
businesses, the smart sellers are only getting *stronger*.
Many smart people are now putting their digital eBooks onto discs (cds/dvds) & selling them that way.
((but creating cd/dvds is so much hard work))
Well, yes and no.
You’ll only have to put in the effort to do things ONCE…
The key here is *AUTOMATION* and in setting up the products one time.
There are online services you can use to create, pack, and ship your discs for under $2 each! So you’ll
want to make your business as hands free as possible.
Not only that, but DISCS have a much HIGHER perceived value than eBooks. That same eBook sold on a disc can be
sold for much more than if you just sold it as a digital download.
Many people are STILL selling cheapo eBooks on cd’s and only making pennies..their still doing it all wrong.
What YOU need to do (I’ll show you in the course) is find the profitable products, and then sell your own
versions/something similar to your competitors.
ANOTHER thing I see people doing wrong on eBay is *NOT* building up a customer database/mailing list. A BUYERS
list is the most valuable asset you could ever have.
A list of around just 850 cd buyers generated me $1600 in a recent promotion I did. It DIDN’T cost me any thing, no eBay fees, no ppc fees, nothing. This is all because I create a mailing customer list of each and every buyer that has a transaction through me. SMART…I know 🙂 I’ll show you how to do EVERYTHING inside the course.
So yeah, even selling $2 cd’s on eBay can be worth it… because you’re building up a huge customer database of PAYING people.
You then work those leads through a funnel. i.e. you sell them or offer them something GREATER than what they
just purchased (must be relevant to original purchase). Then you can implement all sorts of marketing techniques
such as upsell, cross sells and backend offers.
YOU’RE NOT AN EBAY SELLER
If you want to sell on eBay, then you have to accept the fact that you are NOT just an eBay seller…BUT a MARKETER.
You’ve got to be able to sell not only the products, but yourself too.
Ebayers are people who sell stuff on eBay as a hobby, like dirty old stamps and socks, people who run garage sales just to get rid of their stuff, and so on.
If you want to make serious dough on eBay, then you’ve got to accept that you are a MARKETER and then have to learn how to become a GOOD one.
This is how I’ve been able to transition from selling on eBay to selling on the internet.
I’ve used my eBay strategies and marketing skills that I learnt ON eBay -> to start making a full time income online
marketing my own products through my websites OFF EBAY. My first product sold over $10,000 (off eBay) this YEAR (in April). So my strategies & techniques work ON and OFF.
SO if anyone says my course is OLD just because I made it last year, THEY don’t know any better.
Techniques and policies will ALWAYS change, but CORE fundamentals will NOT. With strong foundations and
knowledge, you’ll be able to adjust in ANY climate.
Once you go through my ISpy course, you’ll not only become a good eBay seller with a great solid foundation to start off with, but a good ONLINE marketer. Think of eBay as a platform for creating just one stream of income. You’ll then be able to use the internet and your websites for another.
QUESTION; I live in Canada, am I restricted to eBay Canada site, or can I also use eBay.com to make money…I am wondering if you know anything about this?
ANSWER; You are NOT restricted to only selling on ebay Canada, in fact, you can sell on ANY eBay international site you want!
QUESTION; Will you show us how to sell physical products?
ANSWER; YEP. You get a complete module on how I import my items, where I get them from, HOW I select what to sell, HOW I select who to spy on and copy and a LOT more 🙂
I really don’t want you to miss this.
I took me *THREE* months to make these videos and I’m practically giving them away for $27(I was going to sell them for $197). But you have to be QUICK, because I’m going to increase the price AND take the site down within
a few days, just to give the fast people a head start.

In order to sell items in your eBay store, you have to add them first. Such a novel idea! But if you have never added items to your eBay store, it may be a bit confusing. For the newcomers to the business of running your own eBay store, here is how you can add new items to your store:
Round up the items you intend to sell, and take photographs. A digital camera works best in this situation, as it allows you to easily add your photographs to your computer and upload them to eBay. Take as many photographs as you can for each item, showing the item in different positions, back and front, and focusing in on flaws or scratches on imperfect items. A lot of pictures allows your buyers to see the item for what it really is, leaving no surprises when the item arrives at their doorstep.
Create detailed descriptions of the items you are going to add to your eBay store. Be as descriptive as possible, listing any possible defects the item may have. You can also borrow information from the manufacturer to include the specifics of the item you are planning to sell. Just remember to rewrite the information you use, in your own words; otherwise, the manufacturer may ask to have your listing pulled for using their descriptions verbatim.
Once your photographs and descriptions are ready, log in to your eBay seller account and go to your eBay store. Choose the “Add Item” option, and copy the description you have just created. Add in your photographs for the item as well. Provide the sale price of the item, the shipping price and method, and divulge your return policy, if you have one.
If you have a template that you use for selling your items, include this in your store as well. A store template can give your items a more unified look, and give your eBay store a more professional appearance. Adding in a template with your eBay store name or other information is a great way to get more views on your eBay store items for sale.
When you have finished adding in all of the appropriate information, list the item in your eBay store. While you may see the item listing immediately, it can take up to a few hours before buyers will be able to find your item. By the next day, buyers will see you items show up in search results on eBay and on other search engines.

Adding video to your eBay auctions can increase the number of bids you receive on an item and give your buyers a better idea of the item they are bidding on. You don’t have to be an experienced video producer to create videos to post on your eBay auctions. Adding video allows you to talk directly to your potential customers and add your own creativity to your listings. Video allows you to share information more effectively than just text. You can also use videos to demonstrate how an item works or how it is used. Videos are easy to make and are used by a small number of sellers.
Before you run out to the electronics store to pick up the latest digital camcorder, take a look at your digital camera. Most digital cameras have a built in option for digital video recording which will be more than adequate for use on eBay.
The first thing you need to do is round up the items that you want to create videos for. Give your viewers a 360-degree view of the item you are putting up for auction. You can use your video to give your listing a personal touch.
You don’t need to make your video any longer than 30 seconds to a minute, which is about the time viewers start to get bored, anyway. Once you’re finished, upload the video to your computer the same way you upload your photographs. Find your favorite video-sharing website; YouTube is still a personal favorite, especially due to its embed code that just needs to be copied and pasted right into your auction. Once you’ve gotten the videos uploaded, all you need to do is paste the code for embedding the video anywhere in your auction, and you’re done. With your auctions, eBay also offers you a way to upload videos that eBay displays for you, but you can save yourself the extra fee by using a service like YouTube instead.

Opening your own eBay store is the fastest and easiest way to get your at-home eBay business off the ground. With an eBay store, you can enjoy the financial freedom of running your own business and still be home with your children. All you need to open your own eBay store is a computer with internet access. If you don’t have an account with eBay, sign up on eBay.com to get started. Click on the “sell” section of eBay’s website, and follow the instructions to set up a new seller account. While eBay does collect fees for opening and running a store, a basic eBay store is just $15.95 a month.
You will also want to set up a PayPal account if you do not have one. Signing up for a PayPal accounts are free. The only difference between a regular account and a merchant account is that you can accept credit cards through a merchant account effortlessly, but your payments will be subjected to a small fee percentage.
When your store is ready to go, start by adding items from around the house that you no longer have a need for. It is estimated that the average person has about $6,000 of junk lying around the house that they can sell on eBay for a profit.
When you’ve sold everything you can from around the house, you can take half of the money you’ve made through your eBay store to upgrade your store to hold more items, and start purchasing new items to sell in your store. An upgraded store will cost you $49.95 a month. As your store and your business grow, use half of your profits to purchase more inventory. This is a great way to continue to ensure the success of your eBay business.
The best thing about eBay is that they handle most of the work for you. You add your item to your store, and eBay handles the marketing, the selling, and the customer service. All you need to do is collect your money, pack up the item, and ship it off to the buyer. No other home business offers you the same results for such a small amount of work!
OK, get out there and start making money!

My wife, Lynne has sold many things on eBay but has never, ever done an “About Me” page. So it was interesting to find out about this pretty easy way of promoting our products. All of this passes the common sense test, therefore, she is in the process of setting this up as we speak. So although I can’t rant and rave that this works as yet, I’ve talked to friends that say it is the way to go in eBay. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know how it goes.
Free advertising is always good advertising, especially when you are just starting your eBay business. One way to get free advertising is by doing something with your eBay about me page. The about me page is one of the least used features on eBay but it has the potential to increase your sales. Your about me page can be used to build trust and add some personality to your User ID and eBay store. It can be used to drive traffic to your eBay listings. When you create an about me page, a small red and blue icon appears next to your member ID. If you click on the ICON you are taken to the about me page.
Your about me page on eBay offers you an unlimited amount of space to design, add information about you and your business, and display stats such as your most recent feedback and contact information. Many people also use their eBay about me page to outline their return policies and customer service practices in detail. You can also add your company logo to your my eBay page.
You can also use your about me page for other purposes, as well. Add information about your business and how it got started, why you sell on eBay, and what type of items you usually sell. Assure your buyers that they won’t find a better deal anywhere else. Connect with potential bidders by offering a lot of information on your about me page.
Using an about me template for a layout can be a great way to make your page more attractive to potential buyers. They can give your page a more professional look, and catch the attention of your customers. If you don’t have any HTML experience, you can find free about me templates for your page online.
Adding links to your eBay about me page is a good way to get others to your store, as well. You can link to another website you own, another store you run, or your personal blog. Link back to your eBay about me page wherever you can squeeze in the HTML – on your website, in your e-mail, and even on your forum signatures when you post on other sites on the internet.
Using your about me page as a marketing tool is fast, easy, and it’s free. It gives your buyers a way to learn more about your eBay company and the items you sell, as well as your customer service and return policies. This information is important to many buyers, and listing it in an easy-to-find place can increase your sales. It also keeps your customers well aware of your policies so they don’t have to guess at the kind of service they will receive. Start your eBay about me page today, and watch how your sales start to grow!
