As we do every Friday, it’s time to end the week with a Questions & Answers blog post where I cover the most interesting questions you have sent it over the last week. Next time will be the 30th anniversary edition so keep sending in your questions via the contact form on this page.
Remember, even if your question does not get published, I will still give you a personal reply via email.
Today’s questions are:
- Is it possible to make money selling info products on eBay?
- Do purchases count towards the seller transaction count number?
- What is best way to organise product shipment from China?
- Can you make money selling brand new video games on eBay?
- What to do with devalued stock?
Let’s get started!
I came across your product via YouTube.
I’ve been marketing online for years and actually started off on eBay selling iPod tutorials when the iPod was first released around 10 years ago and I sold a few altogether. There was also a public domain document doing the rounds about how to run a car on tap water.
I sold a few of those also, but others soon started doing the same thing and it became saturated with different people claiming they actually owned the book and reporting other sellers. I’ve no interest in cars, but noticed I had some success selling car info products, especially to people in the USA.
Recently I’ve thought about coming back to eBay as I have a dating product which is an ebook and video slides.
I watched your presentation with interest and may get your product.
However I think the idea of selling one a day on eBay is a little ambitious?
I use a fulfillment service for some of my products and could probably do the same for eBay after collecting the customer’s address. It’s an idea I am toying with.
Would be interested to hear your thoughts.
eBay really is NOT the best place to sell information products, not anymore, particularly in the dating niche. You could of course sell a few copies here and there but you won’t be able to make a business out of it.
