Make a Living on eBay 101

Aug 17, 2007
People are always asking me for the secret to earning an income online.

My advice goes something like this:

Select one thing and get good at it. Continue to fine tune your process and automate it where ever you can. Once you produce consistent results at that one thing, continue to repeat what works. Then try something else to expand your profit potential.

For those who are still skeptical, here is the easiest, cheapest, and lowest risk method I can think of to start earning an income on the internet.

By the way, if you can not follow these simple steps, I highly recommend that you give up and learn to enjoy your day job!

Here's the approach I would use if I were just getting started:

1) Search the internet and find a wholesale drop shipper that will meet your specific needs. Find a reputable source that has been in business for a reasonable period of time. They must provide you a high-volume of name brand products to sell, a low price guarantee, quality information to create your ads, and they must be an eBay certified vendor with effective integration so that you can automate the process of selling on eBay.

2) Open an account with the selected wholesale drop shipping supplier.

3) Open an account with eBay or other auction site.

4) Browse the drop shippers product catalog and find an item that you wish to sell.

5) Find all the product information you need to list products for sale on eBay. Information of interest includes product photographs, descriptions, and the purchase price. This will help you in creating your auction advertisement and in establishing a profitable selling price.

6) List your product for sale on eBay and on your own website (if you have one).

7) Sell the product and collect payment from your buyer.

8) Purchase the product from your wholesale drop shipper - they will ship the product directly to your buyer. This is a very powerful step that I want you to understand. You sell a product, collect the money, and then purchase and ship the product to your customer. This is truly a no risk opportunity where you apply finacial leverage to your benefit.

9) Profit from your sale and repeat the process with the same product or several different products.

10) Go back to step #4 and repeat the process - it doesn't get any easier than this!

As with anything you do, practice makes perfect! So with that said, I recommend maintaining a focus on this business opportunity and while you continue to fine tune your own process.

Look for opportunities and tools that will help you automate the process and make it as close to an auto-pilot business as you possibly can.

Once you get good at this, continue to do the same while looking for new opportunities that will help you diversify your income flow. All you need to do is apply the same methodolgy as above and maintain a focus focus.

With a consistent approach you will begin building your business and will realize continued growth through multiple streams of auto-pilot income.
