I have been teaching a few workshops about using eBay for a number of months now, but was never very interested in doing it myself. But it seems every time I turn around, someone is recommending eBay, not just to make money, but as a learning tool for Internet Marketing.
I finally decided to get off the fence and be more serious about doing, not just knowing about eBay. One of my students sold a small soapstone bear for over $300 and the enthusiasm was contagious. So I listed my first item last week (a small plastic toy) and it actually sold!! Not for much more than the price of a cup of coffee, but it was still enough to encourage me to try again.
The tutorials and help at eBay are fantastic, and I have a lot of stuff lying around that I would love to find a new home for, so I may be spending a lot of time at eBay. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
