The most important factor in eBay business success is to get the right product at the right time. Why? First, imported goods in the wholesale markets are, for the most part, very low quality. It is very hard to build a successful business on the basis of selling low quality cheap goods.
Secondly, there is a tough competition on the eBay market place. You will need to compete on the quality of goods as well as the price.
Finally, you cannot compete with big brand businesses if you are selling brand name products. The only way out is to get authentic branded products cheaper than wholesale and manufacturing. This is what this course will teach you.
This course is not about...
What is the most importanct factor to beat the competition on eBay?
This lecture teaches how to use this sytem effectively. You will have three main steps.
Dealnews dot com is a great source for buying branded items on fantastic prices. They actually do not sell them, but list deals from many sites and list them all in one place.
This lecture gives real examples of how to find deals on dealnews dot com for your eBay business.
In this lecture I will teach you by real and live example how made $447 in less than an hour buy just following the system in this course.
The method used in this example is known as eBay and Amazon Flipping.
Here is a list of 51 sites mainly from the US where you can buy branded products. Some of these sites are general in nature i.e. they list all sites of deals from any category. Others deal in a particular market or niche. For instance, you will find categories like sport, clothing, furniture, health, games, electronics and so on.
This is a list of sites which offers deals in Canada. Although you can use the list of sites in US, some students wanted to specifically mention the Canadian deal sites. Here you go.
This is my favourite source in the UK. Hardely a day passes that I don't check Hot UK Deals. This site is simply amazing.
If you are in the UK, make sure you book mark the site and visit it on a daily basis. You will love it, I am sure.
I just recevied an email from a student requesting to shoot another video for the Hot UK Deals site. Here you go.
Once you visit the site, you will definitely come up with some goods. Don't forget to do your homework before you make any purchases.
This another fantastic source for buying genuine branded products on bargain and throw away prices. I some times find it even better than Hot UK Deals. The desgin of the site is very pleasing to the eye. You may spend a lot of time browsing the pages.
Have fund and earn money, too.
In this document I have reproduced the list of all the UK deal sites so you can easily download it and save it to your computer or moblie device.
Most people have an eBay account. It is easy to open one if you don't have one. The registeration process is easy and interactive.
This lecture walks you through all the steps to set a business account.
For a successful business, PayPal account is mandatory. In this lecture, you will learn how to setp up a PayPal account and the option to upgrade to premier and then business account.
After you find the right product a the right price, the next step in your eBay business success is to create an effective listing.
There are hundreds of eBay seller who do not possess the right skills to create professional listings. Consequently, they leave a lot of money on the table.
The purpose of this course is to beat competition on every front. In this lecture, I teach why do you need to create listings that stand out from the crowd. You will also learn the various sections of an eBay listing such as title, sub-title, images, description, policies etc.
Title is the most important part of a successful eBay listing. It is the first thing that buyers see in the search results.
An effective and magnetic title is crucial to high click through rate, low bounce rate and high conversions.
This lecture focusses in detail to create titles that rank better in eBay search engine results.
Keywords, style, case, and rules are some of the topic that you will learn from this lecture.
Sub-titles are not free but they offer an extra exposure to your listing. Sub-titles are great for multiple listing format and high end price item.
For a single item listing of a low price, it is not recommended to buy sub-titles. However, for high priced items and multi items listings, sub-titles can highly boost traffic to your eBay listing.
To learn more about sub-titles, this lecture is a must.
eBay has some rules about writing listing titles. You cannot include anything you want. You must no include information that is false and misleading. Moreover, you are not allowed to insert domain names, websites urls and email address in your titles and sub-ttiles.
Description is the heart and soul of an eBay listing. Buyers love to see details of the product. Some buyers only scan through while others will read each and every word.
Writing a great description is an art. Once a visitor lands on your listing page, your description can either make or break the success.
How to write descriptions, what to include, what to exclude and the format of an effective description are the salient features of this section.
An image is worth a thousand words. Product photography requries knoweldge and skill. When knowledge is combined with skill, the results could be impressive.
Learn which equipment should you use while taking photos of your items. You will need the following equipment.
Buy Now and Auctio formats are the two most popular formats in eBay listings. Of course, there is a third type of listing called classified but that is not our domain.
Buy Now is when the buyer can instantly make purchase without waiting for the listing to end. On the other hand an auction type of listing the buyer cannot make an instant purchase. The buyer has to bid and at the time of listing ending, the highest bidder is the winner.
Should you list ina buy now format or auction? It all depends upon the type of product, condition, stock and cas flow situation.
When selling on eBay, you play by eBay's rules. You must comply by all rules and regulations to maintain yoru business account.
eBay requires business seller to formulate the following business policies.
Once the item sells, all is not over. You have to prompt action and get ready for posting and packaging. In this lecture you will learn:
And so on...
Writing magnetic titles.
Feedback, feedback, feedback. Yes, yes, yes. The feedback system on eBay is its pillar. You must maintain the pillar strong enough to support the roof. i.e. your business.
eBay requires you to maintian standards while trading on eBay. You must maintain a high quality customer service. This is reflected in your eBay's feedback.
In the past buyer's and seller could leave each other positive, negative or netural feedback. Recently, eBay changed the rules of the game and now seller can leave positive feedback for thier buyers.
Other topics include:
There is no business without a customer. Keeping a customer happy is the sole criteria for establishing long term successful business.

No matter how hard we try, we will always come across difficult customers. This is the case both in the offline as well as online world.
There are ways, techniques to deal with such difficult customers.
This lecture is exclusively dedicated to deal with hard customers.
How to deal with customers
A return is a pain, is it? No, it is not. Initially when I started I regarded every return as a pain. But this is not the case. Returns are natural. You will definitely get some returns.
Returns are high if you trade in low quality products.They are low when dealing with branded and genuine products. But again, whatever the case may, you will always end up in getting some goods return etiher for refund, exchange or replacement.
Customer should always be treated as a customer.
What is an eBay shop? Do you need one?
It is probably called eBay store in the US and eBay shop in the UK. It does not matter you call it a store or a shop.. but it is highly recommended to subscribe to an eBay shop.
There are three types of eBay shop each offering its own features and benefits and each shop has its own level of subscription.
What is a shop category?
Sorry forgot to mention it is called store category in the US? I think so.
Ok. A shop or store category is a system to organise your products in your eBay shop or store. You can create as many categories as you like depending upon the nature of your products. This lecture teaches how to create your shop or store categories.
Cross promotion brings extra sale at no additional cost. According to some estimate, cross promoting items cna potentially increase your sale between 10 to 20%.
Cross promoting on eBay or Amazon is highly recommended. All big online giant business use the cross promotion strategy to increase their sale.
Amazon is the best example where you will always see other items promoted on a particular page.
cross pormotion strategy
Most buyers are good. They are genuine, honest and trustworthy. We do see bad people every where. There are good and there are bad people.
Fortunately, there are more good people than bad. It is true when it comes to eBay.
eBay is a lovely community of buyers and sellers.
However, there are a few people who hangs around with the ill intention of scaming others.
Most newbies are the easy targets of wholesaler and drop shipping scams. There are thousands of them on the internet.
The bad news is that these wholesale scammers are smart. They can easily dupe new eBay or Amazon sellers and enrap them in their fake lucrative offers.
This lectrure teaches you how to identify such scams and how to avoid them.
Email spoofing is when you receive a fake emial that looks like to be coming from a genuine source which actually is not.
Again new eBay sellers are the easy prey for people operating in the email spoofing. Learn what to do?
Importing from China? Yes!
But you said in the beginning of this course that this business is not about importing form China!
Yes, you are right.
This model is not about importing from China. But importing from China is in itself a very successful strategy. The big problem is there are so many scams here, too. And...then... there are so many complications in the import process.
Ok, in this lecture I just touch upon importing from China. I might come up with a full fledged course on this. Sounds interesting?
Why not leave yoru feedback in the discussion section!
In the nich business model you only serve a particular group of people based on their interest, gender, age, location and so on...
The nich business model is great for establishing your own ecommerce business beyond eBay and Amazon.
This is a general type of business where you do not focus on a particular target group of people. The general type of business sell anything to anyone.
As far as eBay is concerned, the genreal type of business is ok to go with. However, if you want to establish yourself beyond the eBay and other third parties platforms, thsi is not the right model for you.
eBay is fantastic. It is super cool. But it is not the end of the world. There are other platforms where you can epxand your selling portfolio.
Amazon is one of them.
This should be your ultimate goal. Once you establish your own ecommerce site, you can play the game by your own rule.
Following are some of the benefits of establishing your own ecommerce site.
How to plan for long term success.
Well done! Congratulations! You have achieved a big milestone.
Now is the time for action. Without action, there is no success. You have the knowledge but action is necessary.
Knowledge without action is useless
Action without knowledge is dangerous!
