Is eBay still a great place to make money, especially after making all those rule changes?  Absolutely! 

How To Use eBay To Make Money Image 1You just have to be a little creative to figure out how to use eBay to make money (and there are more ways than just depending on a listing).

How can you leverage those millions of READY buyers (meaning their credit card “is already out” and ready for action)?

If you can come up with some ideas you can give yourself a pay raise almost instantly!

Let me give you an example on how to use ebay to make money (a different way). I won’t take the credit for it, but when you’re willing to be a student, you learn a lot from other people (this one is from Silent Sales Machine ).

OK Way To eBay

OK, let’s say you have done some research using the “Completed Listings” search option on eBay and found something that sold almost all the time (meaning it’s currently hot) and attracted a lot of bids.  You come up with a realistic selling price based on what all the other auctions sold for (the numbers are in green).  Well, if you listed the exact same item you will have a great chance of making a profit if you can get it for less than it actually sells.

Researching your market reduces your risk of losing money and it’s just plain smart to do some homework.  You can profit almost every time if you just do this.

Isn’t this how a good eBayer makes money?  Yes, but  WHO CARES!!!  What do I mean?  Read on.

Maximize Your Earnings With eBay

This post is about how to USE ebay to make money (differently).  Everyone else uses that old slow way to make money on eBay.  You know…make money off ONE buyer.

What about ALL the other visitors to your auction?  They came by, probably really interested in your product, but ended up going home with nothing.

Poor them, and especially poor YOU!

They ALL could be potential customers.  Stop worrying about selling that one item and focus on that whole group of INTERESTED BUYERS that came by.  They could have been directed to get a free (related) report emailed to them, for example, and sold something else on the back-end.  That one auction could bring MULTIPLE sales had you catered to their interest.  Now, doesn’t it sound more fun not worrying about profiting on your auction?

Attracting maximum traffic is now your main objective and you can simply do this by listing (currently) popular items, using the maximum auction length (10 days as of this post), starting your auction at .01, etc.

Do you see the potential ONE auction can bring?  They are not just visitors to your auction site, but they are targeted buying visitors.  This is what internet marketers work so hard for, and eBay helps you get that REALLY fast.
