Selling Watches On Ebay

June 22nd, 2012 4 comments

Anybody has the ability to make money online with eBay. The great thing about eBay is that you can sell any item you wish (within reason) without having to spend much. You do not have to pay for your own website or hosting. The only expenses that you will incur are listing fees, as well as final selling fees. Even though these can be a bit pricey, they will not greatly affect your bottom line.

If you are interested in selling watches, eBay is a great place to start. Not only can you keep your expenses low, but you can also reach a large number of people without doing much work. But before you get too excited about the prospects of doing business on eBay¬ł you will need to know how to be a success. After all, if it were easy to sell and make big profits everybody would be doing it.

The first thing to remember is that eBay can be a competitive market place. For this reason you will need to do whatever you can to set yourself apart from the rest of the listings. One of the best ways to do this is by lowering your prices a bit. You should still make a profit on each sale, but with a slightly lower price than the rest of the listings you will garner more business.

In addition to price, use pictures to show just how good your watches are. Instead of only showing one picture, why not list three or four? This will give the buyer more confidence, and in turn give you more sales. To take pictures for your eBay listings all you need is a digital camera. In a matter of minutes you can snap off the shots that you need, and have your item listed. It is that easy.

Finally, be sure to add a high quality description along with the pictures. Remember, this is what will tell people what they are getting, and what they should expect. Without a good description you will only be wasting your time. You may have trouble at first with the description portion of your listings. But over time you will get used to what works and what doesn’t.

Selling watches on eBay is a great way to make money. Just ask one of the hundreds of people that do it for a full-time living. But do not get caught thinking that this is a get rich quick scheme. If you are going to sell watches on eBay you need to be totally committed to what you are doing.

Over time you will become familiar with the system, and your profits will begin to grow. This is when the fun really starts.

Money savvy teen would like to learn!!?

May 13th, 2012 2 comments

I want to become rich…yes, everyone has this dream, but I actually read about techniques, save my money and such. I have 1,000 dollars in a CD, roughly 700 in savings, and over 200 dollars at my house, which I am about to deposit into my savings. I get this money from mowing lawns. From this I get 95 dollars every two weeks plus I do the occaisional garage sale. I would have more, but I have to pay for every "extra" thing I want. I am a big sports card collector, and I probably have 200 dollars worth of that, but the value of my cards is bound to go up, but thats a different story. I also worked for my own computer which I got for a neighbor in exchange for doing their lawn 5 times (100 dollars worth of work). I have other stuff, but I need to get to the point:

I am looking for answers from older people such as: I want to go into business. Besides business and finance, what other degrees should I go after? I am also learning spanish because a good bit of the population will be mexican/spanish when I get older. Also, I know there is no guaranteed way to make money, but what businesses are a safe bet to turn profits? I would own my own card store, but I assume that won’t work out seeing as how ebay and other sites have pretty much destroyed that business for store owners. Also, do you older folks have any tips that you have learned over your lifetime that would help me succeed.

Again, I am not one of those normal teens that says: "How can I make quick easy money…I don’t want to do hard work for it, maybe I can do online surveys or something." DUH. I am a motivated person who wants to and will work to succeed
I get 95 dollars every two weeks from mowing the lawn
I mow 3 neighbors lawns

First, you should feel good about being on the right track. You aren’t falling into the "get rich quick" mentality – doing well, especially in your own business, takes hard work and a lot of effort. Also, having an interest in making money at your age is great.

There are so many types of businesses to choose from, what you first need to decide is what types of businesses fit your talents and desires. I have owned an ad agency, manufacturing company, consulting business, and restaurants. As it turned out I hated the restaurant business – it was the same thing day after day and way too long of hours. I prefer being able to travel and more variety. But the point is you need to think about what you want.

Business is the best education to get; if you want to take other classes do it because you are interested. A second language is a good idea. You should also learn computer skills – how to design a web site, etc. That will make you self-sufficient and you won’t have to pay someone to do that stuff for you.

There is no "safe" business. The world changes – sports card stores, video stores, book stores and many others were thriving not that many years ago and are struggling to stay afloat now. Information products are low cost to get into, you can sell them online and you can change them as market demands change. I know a guy that came up with a book and video on how to install a security system in your home – he is making a good living from selling that online.
