How to sell: Selling on eBay

 

The best method I can suggest for upcoming startup retails is start selling on eBay before doing a web store. Why is that you may ask; it is simple and convenient for sellers to understand about selling goods. eBay is the best hands on tool to use for beginners. Selling a product is not all that simple. eBay isn’t an easy selling platform. What way to better understand consumer behavior then eBay.  I manage to sold about $2,368.75 through twenty-two transactions of selling goods on eBay.  The way I did it was evaluating consumer behavior through spending.  Let’s take this Xbox One S console for example.

 

 

Examine the product and marketing of Xbox One S if you were to sell a console through your web store. (B2C)

  • Demographic
  • Psychographic
  • Value (New or Used)
  • Shipment
  • Inventory
  • Description
  • Photos
  • Profit
  • Return Policy
  • Social Media
  • Email Marketing
  • Digital Marketing
  • Cost per item
  • Payment Setup
  • Website
  • SSL
  • Analytics

 

Now, examine the product and marketing of Xbox One S if you were to sell a console through eBay.

  • Value (New or Used)
  • Shipment
  • Profit
  • Description
  • Photos or video
  • Return Policy
  • Inventory
  • Social Media

 

eBay is slightly different from selling on a web site. eBay is the first step towards understand how to sell a product. Like I said earlier, I evaluated how consumer spend when it comes to buying a product. The better I understood that, I can dictate the next process which is the value. With the value, I have to examine how long did I had my console, and give a description of the console. Later, I take photos (which has to be new) of the console, or I can do a 90 second video break down of the product. After that, I have to set up a reasonable price that works best for both parties where they get a console that is new or used and works perfect. Whereas I get a decent profit from the sell of my console. If I happen to have three function able and healthy consoles that are the same, I can add them in as inventory which increase profit. Not to mention I would have to set up a payment system and shipment system. Once that is all settle, I use social media to get the word out on the consoles that are on sale. Which is why eBay is the best learning tool for beginners how are selling products. The better you understand how to sell, you learn more.

The idea is for you to acknowledge how to sell before you take that step to sell a product. Baby steps lead to walking and then you will be able to run a function able retail business. Take baby steps first and then walk.
