I always see people asking for easy ways to make money online, and where there are legitimate ways they are often a little more advanced or cost a lot of money to get started.
I'd like to give you a brief skeleton of a system that anyone can use to start making money very quick on eBay. In fact I set up a fresh account on eBay about 100 days ago and only actually started selling about 45 - 60 days ago.
This account has already pulled in $1329.03 in total and about $1,200 in profit all from one simple $12.99 product that is shipped out on a disc costing me about $2.00 in duplication, packaging, postage and eBay/PayPal fees.
I won't be going into great detail, this is just a simple guide designed to show you how easy it is to get started. You will need about $15 - $20 to get started. $10 in paypal and $5 - $10 in cash to buy a few blank discs, envelopes and stamps.
Step 1 - Open a new eBay account and purchase a few cheap items, you can get beads from china for $0.05 with free postage. You are aiming for 10 buyer feedback. You can only order from the same seller once in a week.
Any more and all feedback you receive from that seller will be counted as 1 single positive even though multiples will show up on your profile.
Step 2 - While you are building up feedback, browse eBay and take note of any items that are selling like hot cakes.
Step 3 - Think of info products that can be used as an alternative or even enhancer to the items that you have found.
Step 4 - Once you have 10 feedback create or find that info product that can replace/enhance your hot selling items and list them.
Step 5 - Wait for a few to sell, and burn them to disc your self until you reach around $25 in profit from your item.
Step 6 - Use your first $25 do order 25 pre burned and printed discs from a duplication house.
Step 7 - Once sales start picking up a little open a basic shop and create a good till cancelled buy it now listing of your item. Create a 1,3,5,7 and 10 day auction of the listing at a little higher than your good till cancelled listing.
In your auction listings have a couple of links to your good till cancelled listing telling people they can get the same item cheaper on buy it now and direct them to your good till cancelled.
Step 8 - Wait until your stock gets down to about 10 and order another batch of ready made discs.
And that is basically all there is to it. The possibilities are endless and you can have upto 50 different listings targeting different keywords selling the same one single info product.
All you need to do is keep searching for different hot sellers and add a new info product following the process above. There are a few little secret ninja tactics you can use to blast your good till cancelled near the top of page one as soon as it gets indexed.
You can also get top rated seller very fast by selling a simple little item that people just love to buy. But it can be a little time consuming doing it. I will be keeping them to beauties a secret for now.
Hope this gives you a little idea of how to get started, any questions just ask.
