Your eBay images can make a HUGE different in how well your items sell on eBay.

The concept of Merchandising is really quite simple. It means displaying your products in their best possible light.

In this lecture, I show you simple ways to dramatically improve your buyers' perception of your items (and dramatically increase how much they'll pay for your items) by using these quick merchandising tips.


Amazon requires that your product images have clean, white backgrounds. (eBay is moving toward this standard, as well)

In this lecture, I show you a super-easy tool that will turn the backgrounds on your images into clean, white backgrounds.


A great way to stand out from your competition is to do something they aren't doing.

One of the best ways to sizzle your product is to add product images inside your description itself.

(as opposed to having eBay show the images in a constrained format at the top of the listing)

This has a powerful effect on buyers because it removes one of several steps they must take on eBay if they want to better see your product and evaluate it.

By adding photos inside your description, you are also showing that you are a pro-level seller and gaining credibility points, as well, all of which lead to more sales and higher profits for you and not your compeition.

Section 10: How To Determine The Amount That A "Best Offer" Item Sold For

In this lecture, you'll learn how to determine how much a competing seller accepted in a "Best Offer" situation.

This can help you determine how much of an offer you will make for that item.

It can also help you better determine the value of items and therefore helps you determine how to price your items.

Section 11: Product Description And Additional Powerful Marketing Hacks

When it comes to making more money with eBay, how you write your product description is critical to your success!

In this lecture, we cover how to properly write a product description that will sizzle the product so that people buy from you and no one else.

We will also discuss a very cool feedback hack - how to add screen shots of your positive feedback inside your product description to help build social proof and increase your sales!


Social proof is a powerful element in marketing.

You can increase the social proof of your product by showing your customers that other people have bought your product and have been happy with the transaction.

In this lecture, I demonstrate how to take a screen shot of your positive feedback and then how to add that screen shot to your product description area for better sales results.


When you are in a competitive niche market on eBay, it is sometimes difficult to compete on price alone.

In this lecture, I show you a variety of ways to add value to your product listing rather than lower your prices.

By adding value in this way, you differentiate yourself from the competition and stand ahead of them in eBay search.


Cross selling is a powerful way to drive more traffic to all your listings.

In this lecture, I demonstrate how to add this to each of your listings for greater sales results overall.

You'll experience higher auction bids and faster fixed-price sales.


In this lecture, we cover the overall philosophy of the eBay Hacks strategies - the principle of Slight Edge
