Wow! Anyone looking for eBay selling tips should check out this video. I just interviewed Maria, an eBay buyer since 2007.
I was surprised to hear that she does not search for brand named items. (Many of the people I know who shop on eBay look for specific name brands.) She goes on eBay to find deals on everyday items like clothing. She often visits sellers’ “other items,” and she often signs up for people’s email newsletter. Thanks for all the info, Maria!!!

I hope you’ve been enjoying watching my eBay buyer interview series! I’ve learned quite a bit myself! Last week I decided to interview Jeff Ochs. Jeff is a school administrator and avid cyclist who often uses eBay to buy bike parts locally.
Thanks for participating, Jeff!
I got a great response from the last video I posted. Thanks for watching! This week I interviewed Angela who has been buying on eBay for years! The video came out great, and I learned a lot. I think you will, too. Very informative!

As I’ve mentioned before, I do almost all my shopping at yard sales and thrift shops. I really don’t shop much on eBay or in traditional retail establishments. This puts me at a real disadvantage as a seller. I don’t know much about the eBay buyer.
What are people searching for? How do they search? What keywords are they typing into the eBay search box? How savvy are shoppers when it comes to using eBay’s filtering tools?
Some of this info can be obtained by looking at Omniture reports or the Google Keyword Tool, but I thought it would be interesting to go one step further. I’ve decided to start interviewing buyers.
This weekend, I was at a cafe with my friend. She started talking about her eBay buying habits, so I got out my iPhone and created my first interview!
I’m working on making future interviews look more professional. This one is pretty homemade (a homemade video on the eBay Life Blog? How unusual!), but it’s full of great information. And since there’s not much to look at, you might just want to sit back, close your eyes, and listen!
Hope you enjoy it!
