Another topic that I’m fond of talking about is listing creation, which isn’t really news to any of you, as you know how important I view design and presentation when trying to create a real business on eBay.
A few times in the past when asked about the best listing creation tool, I’ve recommended Turbo Lister, as I believe it to be the easiest way to create professional listings to use on eBay, for free.
