Making Money with Ebay
E-bay as a company, spends millions of dollars every year to bring people to their
website. With E-bay, you have a captive and faithful audience. People are coming to E-bay
to find bargains and to spend money. This makes it a great place to promote your business.
However, E-bay does not allow individuals to market products that are not being sold
through their web site. Therefore it can be difficult for one to take advantage of the
traffic generated from E-bay, unless they know the secrets. In this article we will
discuss ways to market your business using E-bay.
One of the most common ways to market your business through E-bay is with e-books.
E-books are informational products. Simply sell them cheaply and provide great information
that includes links to either affiliate products that you are promoting or to ones that
you own yourself. Many people do this by selling $.99 books. This can be very powerful
strategy. However, it is not a new method and some people may ignore $.99 e-books because
they believe that they are trash.
An alternative way to do this is to create an original report on the same topic as your
business. Offer resell rights and sell the package for $6.00-$.7.00. You don't want to
charge too much, but you want to sell your report for a respectable amount.
In your e-book, on the very first page of your e-book, be sure to plaster the web address
of your business. You also want to place your website in strategic places throughout the
book, and perhaps in a resource section at the end of the book. Be sure to offer something
of value and always over deliver, so that they will feel confident visiting the sites that
you have recommended within your book.
Another way to advertise your business on eBay is to use eBay classifieds. This is fairly
new but by using eBay classifieds you can send people to sites outside of eBay, making
this another great way to advertise your work at home business.
Also be sure to take advantage of the "about me" page. On the "about me" page you can list
information about yourself and you also can place a link to your web site. Another way to
take advantage of eBay traffic, is to direct anyone who has questions to an email address
with your domain name included. For example, if your website's address is john.com,
forward all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Believe it or not, people will visit your site and
you get free traffic.
E-bay is a fantastic resource to build a business and is allowing a lot of people to make
a lot of money. It is a great way to funnel traffic and to build your home-based business,
so go ahead, get started and make some money.
