How can you become a power seller? Well before you can become a power seller and make any money you must know the basics.
To start you off with a good comprehension of what to do here are some Great Tips.
First mistake people make is they go and buy a whole stock load of products before they even know the In’s and outs of eBay. Start small, buy things to sell that really don’t cost that much to you. Start out with small items and see which ones do best. Then narrow it down to the ones that sold the most and make those your niche products.
Focus on expanding and growing your new found niche products and make them your expertise. Once you have established a good 2-3 month run on these items you will have a good grasp on how eBay operates. Now if you decide to move on to larger and more expensive products to make even more money online you may choose to if you feel you can handle it.
The Majority of people use the Internet because they can find what they are looking for almost instantly. Therefore you must understand how important it is to answer and respond to questions or concerns your customers may have as quickly as possible. Customer service is key.
Take professional pictures from the very start. Old, dim, and just plain unappealing pictures will not result in sales. Professional pictures will definitely have your visitor turn into a customer. This is key to the way you present your products. Look at your competitors pictures, and try to get better pictures, and better angles and lighting your competitor doesn’t have.
Keep contact with your drop shipper, wholesaler etc, to make sure you are informed and aware of recent and current product issues. If you get a back order your customer won’t be happy and if they want a refund it will cost you money so that transaction becomes a complete loss. So do yourself a favor and keep constant communication with your suppliers.
Do NOT offer free shipping as a gimmick if you CANNOT afford it. Offering free shipping does result in more sales but think about your profit difference after you offer free shipping, will there even be a profit ? Think about the weight of the item, on top of that you don’t know how far you will be shipping it until the order is placed. So again do NOT offer free shipping as a gimmick if you CANNOT afford it.
