I love my favorite Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/eBayMotivationStation/
Having a business can be lonely – and eSelling can be hard. It is nice to have folks who are also working to build up their business to help you with the challenges. Lots of groups go into negativity, and some even into attack – but we work to keep it very positive here.
It’s especially fun when the members share some of the items from their store once a week in Support Saturday. Here we share our items, and use as many ways to promote each other as we can. Who knows – sometimes we even purchase the item!
If you talk to eSellers they will consistently say that the main key to success is to LIST. Whether it is listing on eBay or sending boxes in to Amazon FBA (AKA “feeding the pig” ) , or adding items to your own store on Shopify, or a private website – nothing sells until it is listed to sell. And eBay at least seems to reward you for listing consistently, usually what happens is that you will have other things sell when you list something – it is like the lights turn on in your store.
I met lots of successful sellers at eBay’s 20th birthday. That extravaganza held in San Jose from September 10th through September 11th, 2015 introduced me to many professional sellers and reinforced the dream: an individual starting from just selling this or that occasionally to moving on where they were meeting their basic needs – and some people becoming very rich. These people made it obvious that eSelling can be a true business, and even very lucrative. If you want to take your eSelling hobby to a true business you will need to distinguish your site as one that is truly exceptional.
