A Simple Ebay Money Making Trick Revealed!
A Simple Ebay Money Making Trick Revealed! by Dayne Herren
Let me guess, you hear of all these people making thousands if not millions on eBay and you are just completely baffled as to how they do it. Well, most of these people either sell high ticket items or sell hundreds and hundreds of specific "hot" items.
As you may know, finding items to sell on eBay can be tough and most of all, it takes time. You have to search through junk at garage sales and even thrift stores.
But what I'm about to reveal to you will be an easy way for you to make some extra cash on eBay. It may even be enough to pay your mortgage or car payment. And best of all, it is very simple. You don't even have to search your local garage sale or flea market for that hidden treasure to sell on eBay.
So here is what you do. First of all, you have to find a market on eBay that is buying. Take a look at expired auctions or current hot auctions. Once you find a hot subject, write up a 3-5 page report that gives solid content on that subject. If it solves a type of problem or explains "how to" do something, even better. Sell your report on eBay for something around $2.99 to $5.99. Be sure to make your listing keyword rich so it gets viewed but the right audience.
Now, here is the part that may earn you even MORE money AFTER the sale of your report. If you haven't heard of "affiliate marketing", then you are missing out! In a nutshell, affiliate marketing means that you sell someone elses product, and you get a percentage of the sale. There are multiple places you can sign up to start promoting other peoples products. A couple big ones that come to mind are cj.com, Linkshare.com, Clickbank.com and even Amazon.com. When you sign up, you find a product you want to promote, and then you you can pick either text links or banner ads to promote the product. When someone buy from that link or ad, you get paid. Plain and simple.
If you really want to make SERIOUS money on affiliate products, I would highly recommend you pick up your own copy of Rosalind Gardner's Super Affiliate Handbook. She makes over $400,000 a year just by selling other peoples products! She will show you exactly what to do to make great money. Go to http://dayne.us/affiliatehandbook.html and grab your copy.
The key to making more money off your report is to make sure you put in affiliate links within your report. I wouldn't use more than two. I would advise using text links, that way you can blend them within the report text. Once you create your text links, they will be long, so go to www.tinyurl.com. This is a great site that can shorten the link for you.
Once you have your affiliate links shortened, blend them in within your report and hype them up a bit to promote the sale. But don't overdue it. If you push it too much, people will realize that you are just trying to make a sale.
Lastly, when your report is complete with content and links, make sure you put in PDF format. If you don't want to write the report yourself, just go to Elance.com and find someone who will write it for you. For a small report, it should only cost you around $20-$40. Remeber, you can sell this report over and over again on eBay and you have exclusive rights to it!
That's it! Now, you have the opportunity to make $5.99 from one sale on eBay and maybe even MORE with your affiliate links...and you didn't even have to go hunting for items to sell! Just think if you get 10 reports selling on eBay. The profit potential can be huge!
