  • Hi Sergi,
     
    Well, where I am at now is "efficiency".
     
    The Stages I went through on eBay:
     
    In the beginning, I start just trying to make some money on eBay.  Then, I got to the point where I just wanted to make as much money as possible and did not care how much work I had to do.  After a year or two, I get to a point where I want to cut back the work and increase the profit.
     
    So, in the end, I am trying to cut out as much work as possible (automation, workers) and make as much profit as possible (only sell products that make killer profit).

    I only have two hands and I can only hire so many workers so I am trying to make it "efficient".
     
    So, if you are like me, that is where you will go in the end.  You will be searching for that product that makes you tons of money and you do not have to do hardly any work..
     
    THE SECRETS:
     
    Man, I don't think you are seeing it totally. 
     
    Its ALL in the marketing..

    So, since I am one of the best marketers on eBay, I have more experience than basically anyone I teach.  So, if someone competes with me at selling a product (a competitor), I have an advantage over him/her.
     
    So, I do not worry.  I have the skill.  I can sell anything on eBay.  Its ALL in my marketing that I make money.  So, I can start from NOTHING and go to MONEY in no time and I don't have to worry about my competitors, as I can beat most of them.
     
    I am more secure in having the marketing skills and have the confidence to go into eBay knowing I have sort of a power over eBay and how it works..

    That is the secret..  The secret is aquired when you have the marketing skill.
     
    I have no problem teaching you the skills, but I can not think of all the skills at one time, so it takes time for you to learn all the skills, even though I am making it much faster than if you were learning on your own through trial and error..
     
    RIGHT NOW:
     
    Well, where I am right now is based on my desires..
     
    I could have went the big warehouse route, have a bunch of workers and sell tons of product.
     
    I could have corner a whole market on eBay with import product..
     
    But, the two above require a lot of money and good managing skills.   Of course, lots of money can be made here and lots of growth is possible.
     
    OR, I can stay the same size and FOCUS on EFFICIENCY..  So, I decided on efficiency..  I explained efficiency above..
     
    ANOTHER DISCOVERY:
     
    I thought of this..  We get bills every month right?  Well, wouldn't it be nice if you could get money every month? 
     
    All the big companies which make the most profit have some sort of:
     
    1. Monopoly
    2. Monthly billing
    3. Yearly billing
    4. Needed product (food, etc).
    5. Addictive Product.
     
    SO, for the most profit, the above is the tactic.
     
    1. Monopoly - Corner market on eBay with imports.
    2. Monthly billing - subscription website as I have started.
    3. Yearly billing - virus software, software you need to use daily or depend on.
    4. Needed product - shipping supplies for ebay sellers, items ebay sellers need.
    5. Addictive Product - drugs, weigh loss pills, etc..
     
    These are the money makers because the customers come back over and over after they buy from you..
     
     
    Sincerely
    Tony

    Hi Tony,
     
    Thanks for the answer...I really like "The profit is all in your marketing"....
     
    However, I wonder if you really told me your secret, that bit of information that comes from many years working in eBay.
    You once told me that decided to teach other people your secrets because...? you discovered something else, you were more motivated to do something else...
     
    I would like to know what kind of selling do you still run on eBay, and why.
     
    If you could share with me what's your passion at this moment regarding selling on internet, and also selling in eBay, that would be great. I am not sure your passion is selling eBooks about "how to sell in eBay" or something like that. All this thins are ok, especially for people who are learning from the very beginning. I am not telling you I am not going to learn all this. I am only asking you WHAT's ahead the path, what awaited to you and what pearls did you discover, and where are your efforts focusing right now.
     
     
    Ok, if you can answer that, I would appreciate it.
     
    Then, another thing, regarding your past email. I don't understand this:
     
    "I figure out the highest point by looking through ebay's sale history for the item and sort by highest price first and find the first one that sold (green colored). "
     
    My question is: green colored? I have no idea how to find the "first one that sold". CAn you redirect me to a url so that I can see that Green colored. Thanks
     
     
    Regards,
     
    Sergi.

    Hi Sergi,
     
    The profit is all in your marketing. 
     
    For information products it is 75% marketing..
    For name brand products it is only 50% marketing..
     
    Basically, what I do is sell people my ad, rather than the product.
     
    So, I point out all the benefits of the product, rather than just its features in my description and make sure to separate myself from my competitors..
     
    THEN, I figure out what is the MOST someone on eBay is willing to pay for it and I put my price at that highest point..
     
    I figure out the highest point by looking through ebay's sale history for the item and sort by highest price first and find the first one that sold (green colored).
     
    HERE IS WHAT YOU WANT PROBABLY:
     
    STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON TAKING ANY INFORMATION PRODUCT TO MAKING KILLER PROFIT:
     
    1. Basically, you make an ad description for the eBook.  I generally find those who are selling a similar eBook and are making the most money out of all those selling that particular topic of ebook.  I do this at a link like this:
     
     
    I analyze those who are selling this type of eBook and find the seller making the most money..  I believe I already showed you who this was (hawaiian guy), but there are also many other good examples..  See the link above and do the research a bit..
     
    2. Then, you make your ad in a very similar manner taking the good attributes from the top ads that sell already on eBay..  Think about what of the attributes would seem most appealing to your customers..
     
    3. You make titles that are similar to the titles of the top sellers.. Make sure to get in the relevant keywords..
     
    4. Next, you put up an auction in a normal manner..  NOT at the top of the page..  Just a normal auction or buy it now..  Costs maybe $1+. 
     
    5. Put up a few auctions like this..  Its a bit slow at this stage, but look at it as perfecting your ad.  All you want to do is make sure you can sell on 40% of the auctions..  If you can do this, then your ad and title is solid.  Make sure the price is solid, like $7.95 or $9.95.
     
    6. THEN, after you have gotten some sales, confirmed it sells 40% of the time, THEN, you can put it up at the top of the page in Featured manner.  This will make the process less expensive, as you did your testing on the slower, lower priced regular auctions.. 
     
    7. NOW you are doing some testing at the featured level.  It might already preform good as you tested at the lower levels, but this is a different way to sell, so you might have to do some testing to make sure you are getting the sales..  At the top of the page you will want to be doing dutch auctions and trying to sell 8 or more per auction..
     
    8. ONCE you have proof it is selling 8 or more and going good, THEN, you branch out into other categories, using other titles, and putting the auctions on different days.  This capitalizes the area on eBay so you can max out what you make..
     
    This is where you are at a level where you can make $50 bucks a day..
     
    Takes a while, but I already have several products at this level.   Make take even two months to do all of this, BUT IN THE END, it is worth it.
     
    Why is it worth it?
     
    Do the math..  $50 a day x 3 years.. Thats $50,000..  I think testing and patience is worth $50,000. 
     
    I have made that much o

    I have made that much off some of my auctions like this.. I have probably made $100,000 off the TV Projector info kit I sell.  It followed the same pattern in selling..

    Hi Anthony,
     
    I find your ebook system really interesting. Before I would put it into practice I will like to know one thing:
     
    After thousands and thousands of times you have been selling in eBay, I am sure you have made major decisions about what really sells and what is not worth the effort. As you know, I am really starting to learn eBay's ways to profits...BUT I WANT TO GO STRAIGHT TO ONE AND THE BEST WAY to earn money in a confortable way.
     
    Tony, according to your professional experience in eBay, WHAT'S really worth FOCUSING ON? Tell me please your big secret. Let me hear what you have discovered and would not share unless somebody asks you for...
     
    Thank you,
     
    Sergi.

    Hi Sergi,
     
    There are many good products to sell on eBay.  BUT, lets first start with just eBooks and then you can ask about other types of products..

    Usually for regular product, you want to sell name brand product.  I can tell you how to get this really cheap also.  Just ask..
     
    EBOOKS:
     
    95% of those who sell eBooks do it totally different than me and they also make hardly any money.
     
    The way I do it will make you LOTS of money.
     
    Basically, you have to have balls, though, to do it my way.. 
     
    Why?
     
    Because you will have to spend about $25 bucks on one auction..  BUT, the idea is you make $100 in that auction..  YES, we are talking about eBooks here..
     
    Let me explain..
     
    OK, to give it to you straight, here is how to make real money with eBooks:
     
    1. Pick just one eBook.  Yes, ONLY one.  The topic should be any of the below, as they are the top genres:
     
    A. Stocks or any other type of investing.
    B. How to make money on eBay.
    C. How to win the lottery.
    D. How to win at gambling.
    E. How to make money on the net.
     
    And related topics (horse race betting, Making money in other ways, etc).
     
    These type of eBooks can be sold at the top of the page..  This is called "Category featured".
     
    CATEGORY FEATURED:
     
    ALSO, I am not sure if I pointed this out yet, but selling at the top of the category is generally how most of the top sellers make the most money off eBooks.. 
     
    Selling at the top of the page will cost you maybe $25 bucks, but it is worth it, if you have a killer ad, killer title, and in the best category..  You can get 10+ sales at $9.95 and that is about $100 bucks..  Then, you just pay about $30 to eBay..
     
    TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA:
     
    Here is probably the most profitable eBook auction I have ever seen:
     
     
    Here is how many he sold:
     
     
     
    HE SOLD 120 OF THEM!!!!!  
     
    That is $1200 minus about $65 in eBay fees..
     
    Thats over $1000 PROFIT off ONE EBOOK AUCTION. 
     
    He did EXACTLY as I mentioned above..  He has it as a dutch auction, digital delivery, category featured, killer ad, killer title, great icon and the best category..
     
     
    I have been doing this type of auction style since 2001.  My best one of all time only sold 48 total at $15 bucks each..  That was for the INFORMATIONAL TV projector kit..  Its basically a manual with one component..
     
    My record for software selling in this style was about 34+ sales on a BIBLE SOFTWARE product back about 3 years ago..  Same style, top of the category, etc..
     
     
    So, I would say, this would be the best way to sell your eBooks.  The problem is most no one has the balls to do it..  Even when I tell them the above..  Doesn't bother me though, as I don't loose out..
