If I suggested to a young person that the day will come when they must leave home and move out on their own you would consider this sound advice. Why is it not when talking about ebay. You sell on ebay. A large part of your online business, perhaps all of it comes from ebay or that other giant Amazon.
I understand the relationship. I started there myself, but I moved on after I woke up one day to find my that account had been restricted. In that moment I realized that I did not work with Ebay, in their eyes I was working for Ebay.I started my own online business so that I could be my own boss. Perhaps many of you did the same. Today is another short a quick talk about the need to have options. You will want to do this if for no other reason than to earn extra money until the day comes when you will need it as your primary source of income.
First thing that you need to do is to go out and sign up at other online sites. It is like dating after a break up or in this case before one. There are over a dozen other sites online where you can import your feedback from ebay or amazon and start selling today.
Next you want to begin to build your own website where you can direct your present customers to. You will do with every sale you make. You will include in every shipment a note to visit you at your website. You will offer a great discount for those who come there to purchase from you. Ten to twenty five percent off to capture this customer. Sounds a bit steep, but if you take into account the ebay fees that you will not be paying then you have ten percent right there. You will also develop a email list from those whom you have sold to in the past. It will not be easy, but who ever said that starting and growing a business was easy?
Ebay sold you a dream. What they offered was not what they delivered, but what you did get was an education on ow to sell items online. Time to take that knowledge out into the world.
