I specialize in reselling pop culture collectibles based on movies/games/music/sports/comics from the 80's to now. These items range from Action Figures, Statues, Comics, Vinyl figures, etc. This is something that I have been passionate about for the past 6 years. I currently sell my items on ebay only (I buy directly from the manufacturers for the most part). There is alot of competition on ebay in this niche, and the big stores/sellers are obviously able to price their items so low that it makes it hard to compete. Sales are up and down, but I know it will remain difficult without having the same buying power as these big companies.
Is there any other ways that I can monetize from this niche? I would absolutely love to do a blog but am unsure if I can monetize from it? If so what are some ways that I could? Are their affiliate programs that relate to what I'm doing that I could advertize on my blog or a newsletter for the blog? I really would appreciate tips. Thanks for your time in advance.
