How to Make $1000 Per Month on eBay (Updated 2019)

You must be questioning how to make money on eBay? How to get sales at eBay? How to hit the benchmark of making $1000 on eBay during your month? Then, guys, you have landed in the right place; today we will guide you about how to earn more than $1000/month. We take guides from several eBay experts and here we are going to share their thoughts with you guys.

It is mostly heard that you have to do too much work on eBay and in return, you get a little. Is that true? We asked the same question from one of the officials of eBay University working on a higher position, who also give lectures on how to make money on eBay as your business platform. He started telling us that on eBay your income is not fixed, it’s up to you how much you want to earn from eBay. Don’t put all the money to your pocket; earn more by investing it again and adding more products to your listings.

This little conversation really made up our mind to take a dive into eBay study and just look at how much effort is required and how much can be gained. For this we take expertise from an eBay executive, who told us that for getting more customers to your listing you must follow these steps:

  • Use high-quality images of your products
  • Write down a complete detailed description of your product and keep your potential buyers in mind
  • Make your research
  • Schedule your listing and avoid reserve prices
  • Select your product carefully
  1. Use high-quality images of your products

For using images on eBay you have to take care of both the quantity and the quality. For quality, you have to make use of really high-quality images that are not blurry or too old and images should be perfect showing your items nicely in a good atmosphere. For quantity don’t just put too much of your product images. You must be using a good number of pictures showing your product from different angles. As we all know that eBay charges for photos, so you can make use of an outside app like Flickr or Garage Sale and link that with your eBay listing.

  1. Write down a complete detailed description of your product and keep your potential buyers in mind

While posting your product, eBay provides you with several fields. You should fill all the fields and make sure you are providing the right information about your product. Unfortunately, most of the sellers don’t give much importance to that, but we would say that it is total stupidity that you are not making use of all the provided fields. Think like you are a buyer and you see a book having a price of $200, would you buy it – definitely no. You would want to know about every reason why this book is so expensive and if your money will be worth spending.

The next thing for your description is the use of the right keyword. Most sellers think it a difficult thing but don’t be troubled; you can do it perfectly even if you are not a tech wizard. It’s like asking yourself, how any potential buyer will search for your item in the search box.

Try to be more close to that search in your description to be more visible in the search for that query. Like if it’s a brand name, and then most likely people will search for the brand name, but it doesn’t mean you don’t have to add any other keyword to it; instead brand must be included in the description.

  1. Make your research

Is your item is being searched by people? Take out some time to Google your item to know about its search traffic and market of your product by searching on eBay and other virtual commerce sites. This will help you to sell your product more efficiently, as you will come to know if there is any market value of your product or not, you will come to know about the exact price as well as you will come to know about the right keywords to add to your listing.

  1. Schedule your listing and avoid reserve prices

It’s quite good to schedule your listing, the best is to use 10 days listing starting on Thursday, which will provide you two full weekends to be listed in the search, as weekends have the highest traffic as compared to weekdays.

Another thing to keep in mind is not to use reserve pricing. You should set the answer about how to make money on eBay as you can by reducing the amount of upfront money that you have to pay. You can do so by starting your price to as low as $0.99, which will keep you into the competition. This will give you a little for the time being but this little will add up to make a lot.

  1. Select your product carefully

We asked the most successful person on eBay who made $50k in one year what kind of products we should sell on eBay. He said “Find a niche market and go deep into it – the best is to look into your hobby, sell supplies for your hobbies and make sure that everything is sold off your supplies. Irregular or second-hand things can also be lucrative for you.

After getting all these tips we think of selling one of our products on eBay. Here’s how we sell it in just a few hours.

  • First of all, we signed up for eBay
  • Look for the product we want to sell
  • Searched that product on Google and e-commerce sites
  • Set the price
  • Started marketing our product on eBay listing
  • Listed our first item on eBay
  • Completed our first sale

This whole process almost takes an hour and we got our first sale. Let’s take a look at the whole process in detail:

Step 1: Sign up for an eBay account

It’s quite straight forward. If you are reading this blog and have an email account, then I don’t think so that I have to explain it further.

Step 2: Look something to sell

Nearly everyone around us has something to sell on eBay. Like one of our friends sold a broken laptop last month, which was bought by a man who knows how to fix it and most probably he will sell it again on eBay after repairing.  From this, you can have an idea that eBay is a vast platform where you can sell almost everything.

So, it is not an issue to select a product, you can go for anything lying in the cupboard. As we decide to go for a spare pair of shoes.

Step 3: Research the product and the price

We can’t make a mistake of setting a random price for our product, or not knowing what are the actual hot keywords, which can best describe our shoes. We searched on Google and other commerce sites by the brand name of our shoes; from this, we got an idea about the shoe price as well as a comprehensive detail of our product description to give it a more professional look.

In case you can’t find the price of your broken item, you can simply set a price of $0.99, as you will get something instead of making nothing from it.

Step 4: Market your eBay listing

As we were already done with the research this is not a much time-consuming step. We took some photos added a concise title including brand name to it and copied the description from other sites for the same item.

Note: It is quite necessary to add product color to your description.

We took the above tip and listed our product on Thursday, for an auction period of 10 days to get the benefit of two weekends listing.

Step 5: List your first item on eBay!

Listing your first item on eBay is quite easy. The best thing is to add free shipping for your product that we did as well for our shoes, which attracts lots of customers. We added shipping costs in the price of the shoes.

Step 6: Fulfill your eBay sale

It’s quite important for everyone to get good seller ratings even if you are not a regular seller. When you fulfill all the requirements you will be a reliable seller and shipper, by delivering your product as soon as possible.

That’s all we are done with a sale in just done a little effort and getting the return in a couple of hours. You need to fulfill all the selling requirements to maximize your profit.

One more thing that we learned during all our working is that you have to think locally, you just not have to sell your extra things; you have to start it as a business and have to think locally.

I hope so you will find this informative and now you have your answer about how to make money on eBay by even selling small things.

Tips To Become Millionaire By Selling Amazon Products

You may have seen many young millennial entrepreneurs around you working in the field of the virtual market, who just started earning from few bucks to millions in a short span. How they are able to do so? This question may arise in minds of many folks; well we thought of helping you guys by sharing some useful tips that can help you to gear up your income by selling Amazon products.

The core thing for a successful business is how to launch your business that can help you to generate sales even at the start of the business. We will guide you about the way how to enter the field of the virtual market and how to boost your sales.

So, let’s have a look at some useful tips that can help you to improve your success probability.

1) Use analysis and research to find the right opportunities

When you visit Amazon you will see thousands of products and merchants and you might think it as a hard task to start your business as a small entrepreneur.  But not to worry, you still have a lot of opportunities if you can understand the market.

By understanding the market we mean you must know about what are selling Amazon products, which product has more competition and which product has more margins.

A little hard work is required for this as you have to analyze huge data of product research. After doing data analysis and aggregation, go for the products that are selling good and have little competition. The best thing is if the competitors have bad reviews, start checking their reviews and look for the things they are not doing well and try to figure out the solution of resolving them.

For this you can also take help from tools like Jungle Scout; that can perform all the data analysis and can easily help you in product identification.

2) Focus on 20/80% view

A lot of folks think of scaling their company as quickly as possible and for this, they have to keep on adding new products, but inappropriately they get stuck in little things that can only help them to add little sales to their buckets. So, for this, you can go for 20/80 views, which means an emphasis on the 20% actions that can help you to generate 80% sales, and go for the next product after this. By doing so, you will be able to get explosive progress from $5k/month to about $400k/month within a period of 24 months.

For this you must focus on these 4 things:

  • Opt for the right product
  • Get almost 10 honest reviews about your product
  • Make a perfect listing
  • Go for the Amazon’s pay-per-click platform

We thought that success and failure depend on product selection and research. Thousands of shoppers are searching on Amazon products every day; you just have to provide them what they are looking for. You can only do so when you have done enough research and data analysis of different products.

3) Go for simple, small products between $20-50 range

We prefer you to choose small, simple products between the ranges of $20 – $50, as you don’t have to worry about quality control that much and it also reduces shipping headache.

We preferred you to choose products between these ranges as products below $20 to want to give you that much profit and products above $50 are less purchased and are mostly overlooked by the customers.

4) Label products and make improvements

We recommend you not to go for inventing your own product, as it will take decades to do with its complications like certifications, engineers, patents and more. Better is to use the already manufactured product and stick your own label on it. As most of the big companies are also doing the same things, they just add their label to the product and sell it in the market.

But for the betterment, you can make small improvements in the product to stand out from the competitors. You can take ideas from the negative reviews on Amazon of that product and look what customer wants. Mostly, customers look for a detailed manual, different color, longer handle, sharp blades, etc. these are some small modifications that can be easily done.

5) Model successful products and sellers

You have to choose your product wisely as according to stats 8 out of 10 small businesses fail and a majority of them are because of the wrong selection of products and without doing an analysis of what actually people are looking for. Now with the betterment in the industry, you can choose tools like Jungle Scout to figure out the bulk of data and get an analytical report of the product with higher demand and less competition and try to model these products. The decision based on your analysis of your model product is more likely to get you more revenue.

I hope you guys find out these tips useful, follow these tips and be a successful e-commerce guru by selling Amazon products.
