eBay Motivation Station – My Favorite eBay Support Group

I love my favorite  Facebook group:

This group was started by Kim Marie Sager, of Then and again Treasures ( – and I was lucky enough to become a co-moderator.

I sell  on Ebay as Gypzeerose Bargains and Treasures, and as the business developed I struggeled with this question:

How do you keep your eBay Motivation high?  What keeps the business fun so that your eBay motivation is natural?

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.

One of our weekly events is promoting some of the best items that each member has in their store or just on eBay, Amazon or etsy.  Here are some of the contributions from this week – all great products.

A Listing Challenge that Works for Me

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.

Taking eSelling from Hobby to a Business

eselling on ebay

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.
