Day 2 Is in the Books!

 

Day 2 of eBay Open was a huge success!  The event started off with breakfast and a general session featuring Devin Wenig and Hal Lawton.  Very inspiring!  Thereafter, eBay sellers were treated to lunch which gave everyone an opportunity to network.  The afternoon was filled with educational workshops.  The day ended with another networking opportunity: happy hour!  Check out the pics!

How Many Items Did You List Today?

 

IMG_8986

 

Yup, sales have been slow. It happens every year. No big surprise. People are out swimming, and kayaking, and drinking Mai Tais.  They don’t have time to shop online!

 

We have 2,700+ items listed, and we’ve only been selling about $300 worth of merchandise a day. We usually sell closer to $600 a day. Since it has been slow, I’ve been taking this opportunity to start as many listings as possible. We started 56 items today. Most of the items we listed were in the $29.99-$49.99 range.  I also listed a few items worth $100+.  It’s not worth it for us to list things worth less than $30 or so.  Too many expenses. In fact, we’re trying very hard to increase our average selling price.  No listing junk!

 

I have two people working for me right now, and they’re doing a great job. They list, and I proof. If you want to grow your business, I highly recommend hiring people to help you list. It forces you to take your business seriously. FYI: If you need a big fat kick in the behind, click here to hear Suzanne Wells’ video about how some sellers need to stop whining.

No Vegas? No Problem!

 

air conditioning

 

It’s hot, hot, hot in Chico, but not as hot as it will be next week in Vegas!  Apparently, it will be 115+ degrees on Monday.  But don’t worry.  The picture above was taken in Bend, Oregon, where air conditioning is optional.  The hotels in Vegas are freezing cold!

 

And now for some news….

 

– A new quarter has begun!  If you have a store, don’t forget to order your free shipping supplies!  In order to do this, go to “manage your store.”  Then click on “subscriber discounts.”  Then look for the “eBay shipping supplies” link.  That’s it!

 

– I was just listening to eBay Radio, and the hosts were discussing the fact that there will be a “virtual conference” available to those who cannot attend the Vegas event!  So exciting!  Click here to find out more!

 

– 1,000 people have signed up for the eBay conference!  Wow!

What Sold on eBay for $475?

 

Check this out.  One of my readers just posted this photo of a St. John outfit to the score board.  She sold it for almost $500. Crazy!  I can see why.  Have you ever gone to Nordstrom to check out the St. John stuff?  OMG!  Super pricey.  In addition, the pics are good, the fabric is photogenic, and the color is interesting.  I’m going to be on the lookout for this brand again.

 

I think I’ll focus on very unique pieces and whole outfits.  I’ve decided to only list clothing that’s extremely valuable or extremely easy to list.  Too much measuring!  FYI:  If you’d like to check out the latest posts to the score board, click here.
