Ebay - 7 Simple Steps To Build Your List Using Ebay

Jun 19, 2008
Building a list is one of the most important things you can do. It means that further down the line you will have a list of people you can send information and products to.

This is a fairly quick and easy method to attract subscribers to your list. Here's what you do:

1. Find a reliable source for PLR product. PLR means Private Label Rights and effectively gives you the authority to do what you want with the content, even branding it as your own.

2. Choose a suitable PLR e-book or software package that looks attractive and is in your market or associated with your website in some way.

3. Check on e-bay to make sure that your choice is not already being marketed heavily. If it is, choose again, this will reduce the competition.

4. Rebrand your PLR e-book or software package with links to your main site, affiliate links and products you would like to sell.

5. Then put the item up for a sale on e-bay, repeating the sale every few days.

6. Put a Buy It Now price in the range of $0.01 to $1.00.

7. As part of the purchase process, get them to sign up for your newsletter either manually or automatically. You could try offering the newsletter as a free bonus or a way of obtaining more free e-books if they subscribe.

There you have it, simple, fast and effective. For very little money (20c to 40c each), you have signed up prospect after prospect that you can market to with your newsletter. They also have your e-book that has been branded with your web-site details, you could even give them MRR rights to further encourage the viral aspect of the strategy {HINT}.

If you want to take this strategy to the next level then I suggest you subscribe to Ebay's Marketplace Research. For just $9.99 per month you can get access to some impressive market data.

Just analyse your market space and then try to match your PLR products with demand. So, for example, if you see that 'make money' e-books are selling well, then source a PLR book on 'making money' and go from there.{HINT: Around 500 PER DAY 'make money' e-books get sold on ebay.com}.

It is important to read up on ebay rules before adding your e-books, currently ebay will not allow you to sell a downloadable product so you will need to offer your e-books on a Cd or something similar.

Of course, as always, refine and adjust as time goes on.
