Making Money with Ebay

Ebay is probably best-known for allowing people to make money online. One of the biggest mistakes peoplemake with Ebay is thinking they have to sell their own stuff in order to make money. This is possible, but not the best way to make money. There are three ways to make money off of Ebay. First: You can sell your own stuff. (As mentioned before.) Second, you can find a wholesaler, buy the item, and sell it at a higher price. Thirdly, find a wholesaler and sell their items for a predetermined price and make a commission off of each sale. You can also open an online Ebay store which works well with the third option and makes lots of money. Remember to keep a good reputation and present your products well. This will keep people coming back, and in turn, keep you making money. Ebay Tips

Amazon is very similar to Ebay in that you can sell your own stuff. It may not be easy, but those that have been around the block a few times can make a lot-it just requires a lot of experience. The best way to make money with Amazon is to become an Amazon Affiliate. First off, you will need to make your own Amazon store. Then you sell stuff on Amazon through your store. You then make a percentage (like commission) on all of the sales that go through your store. Amazon tips

Making Money with Squidoo


Do you love the Squidoo community? I know I do! I'm sure most of you know you can make money on Squidoo, but don't know where to start. Squidoo has many profitable modules (like Amazon and Ebay modules) where you can sell stuff and get a percentage of sales made through that module. You can also sell your own items to make money. (You get the money from the sale and still get a percentage from Squidoo.) In addition to modules you can get royalties from Squidoo from the ads that are run on your lenses. Depending on how much traffic your lenses drive you could end up making a lot through the Squidoo ad pool. The best part of this is that both modules and ads can be incorporated on every lens you make.

Get a head and learn some Tricks of Trade to be more successful over all or check out the shop keeper talk to make more money on your lenses. I also recommend learning about You and squid U, but most of all learn how to get the most out of squidoo.

      I do not have an amazon store. The information came from me from a little bit of research and a co worker. I am more of an Ebay user. If I have missed some information or misinterpreted it and published it wrong please let me know i would be glad to fix it.
