To start an eBay Business, and making money from eBay is a very hard task indeed. Making money from eBay would be very easy - if there wasn't so many trying to do it! I have tried and tried for ages to make money from eBay, purchasing from China, using dropshipping. It has always resulted in the same situation - I have had the stock left over and nobody orders from me.
In my quest to start a small online business in the UK, and to make money from eBay, I stumbled across a lot of guides and self help books, that I would like to share with you.
The first is 'A Dummies Guide to eBay Business'. This doesn't necessarily tell you how to make money on eBay, but it does have some great tips and tricks on how to set up auctions properly, how to take the perfect picture, how to use your title allowance to its fullest potential. It weighs in at 100's of pages, and is a great tool and resource for new people who want to up their account from private to business, and attempt to start a a business and make money online. It can be a bit pricey, depending on where you look, probably due to the weight, but is well worth the read if you are serious about making money from eBay.
The second is an instantly delivered eBook. Now I have read 100's of these books in the past, usually they are full of rubbish. However, I found this through the wholesale forums (uk version), and boy, was I glad I did. I can't remember the guys name, but the reviews on it were brilliant - this guy is an authority poster on the forums, and his book can be found on Google by typing in Instant Start Business dot com. Making money from eBay for me, has never been easier as it includes real sourcing strategies that I have been using for over a month so far. I paid £27 for it, and so far I have made, gross profit, about £200 just from one of the six strategies. So again, a bit pricey, but if you want to actually be able to source profitable products, then its worth the read.
Just another quick point, the wholesale forums is another tremendous resource for eBay sellers, lots of knowledgable, useful people about who are only too happy to help.
Hope you enjoyed my review.
