Making a start and trying to make big bucks on eBay

Pictures on my store

This was my original picture.  As you can see, I improved my picture taking very quickly.

This looks more appealing and also gives the buyer a better view of what I am selling.

This is the look of acrylic after it is taken from the cnc and flame polished.  Isn't the luster beautiful.

Starting online selling with no experience

So you want to make money on eBay.


Maybe you want to make a living or earn some extra cash. Maybe you want to be a super rich power seller. Ebay, Amazon, Craigslist and many other online marketing sites are creating a new class of merchant. The brick and mortar store while still ever present will have to share some of its market with its new sibling, the on line store and maybe embrace online marketing itself. While I am late to the party, I am one of the people who own a brick and mortar business and will be bringing it on line and learning at the same time.

I hope everyone can learn from my successes and mistakes and see me start from the ground level. My intent on writing this is to help others see how they can successfully market on the internet.

So am I a huge oneline guru making millions.

No, I am not.

In fact I just started 3 weeks ago and you can visit my store which is linked in my profile.

If you take a look at my photos, I only started taking pictures 3 weeks ago and have had a digital camera for only a month. I am teaching myself everything from A to Z.

I have always been a merchant and my best marketing efforts to date have been hitting the pavement and visiting customers or marketing on the phone. I have a successful manufacturing business and I am currently doing well. I manufacture in the mediums of wood, plastic and metal. I can virtually fabricate anything. I have an automated shop with cncs as well as many proprietary tools that I have designed. It has been a very up and down decade in business. I am actually faring quite well right now despite the economic downturn.


However,


I see the market changing and I will bring my business online to be able to survive in the future and to better serve my customers.


I plan on turning this into a million dollar business in a couple of years and to become a power seller and have over a thousand items listed by Christmas.

I will write instructional hubs showing my experiences and also some hubs to instruct my online customers. I will show people how to build jigs and tools while offering the materials to build them online. I will show people how to source products to sell on eBay. There are many topics that I will address and I hope this helps my fellow marketers out there.......

Sell online and be successful like I will be.
