Ten Strategies I Used to Hit 30k+ in eBay Sales 🚀💰

A Thread
1) Optimize Title

This means use all 80 characters. If you have characters left over, use filler words like
- Fast Ship / Free Ship
- Free Priority Ship
- Same Day Ship
- Emojis: 🔥✈️

2) Optimize Descriptions

You can copy the description of a similar listing.

Listings with quality descriptions are ranked higher on search results. Always utilize it even if the title is good enough
3) Quality Images

People won't tell you this but screenshot and crop the best "Sold Items" image.

Its cool as long as
- the products are the EXACT same
- the listing is out of stock

If the item requires photography USPS boxes work great as a background
4) Low Quantity

Try not to list more than 3 items in stock of the same listing.

When buyers purchase, eBay will push the listing with tags such as

"One left"
"Almost gone"

This also increases your rank on searched results
Works best with strategy 5
5) Out of Stock (OOS) Settings

Turn on the OOS setting . This keeps listing active when inventory hits 0

This keeps viewers & watchers for listings you can restock later.

Listings have 100+ sold with this method & always rank in the top 3

Instructions below
From the eBay website,

Hover over your name in top left corner > Account settings > Site Preferences (under account preference) > "Use the out of stock option": Click Yes
6) Free Shipping

Always offer free shipping. You can add the cost of shipping into the price you want to sell it for.

Works with strategy 7
7) Handling Time

Always set "handling time" to 1 business day

When you have free shipping & a handling time of 1 business day you qualify for a green "Free (3 or 4) Day Shipping" tag on your listing

This boosts overall sales
8) List More

Listing more has a compounding effect over all your listings on eBay.

One hot listing can bring traffic to your other listings whenever buyers click your profile

This gives them the option to see all of your inventory and increase overall sales & bulk orders
9) Variation Listings

Variation listings are when you have multiple items that are of similarity

Like different version model cars of the same brand

eBay ranks variation listings higher than single item listings

Drop a RT if you want a Thread on how to make variation listings
10) Promote

This is the very last option since it increases the total eBay fee and reduces take home pay

Try to stay around the 1-4% range.

Bonus Tip) Promote Hack

An interesting strategy to bring more traffic:

Increase the promotion rate to something very high. Like 10-30%

Also increase your listing price.

You increase eBay's cut but you also retain the original profits since you increased the price.

$88,732.88 in Side Income in 8 months

Starting May 2020 - January 2021

Here's a Thread on my journey
I joined Money Twitter back in May 2020

One of the first posts I read was by @Motivator4Money about Reselling with PFP

My first thought was “It’s a Scam” but after reading dozens of reviews by people saying the same thing

I bought in

And it changed everything
My first full month in PFP, I did $4,088.47 in Sales (June)

2 months later, I did $13,364.62 in sales (August)

And after discovering Amazon, I did $16,277.34 from both Amazon and eBay in December

One Million dollars in a dividend account at a 4% yield is $40,000 annually

This means you never have to work again

Here's a thread explaining the process
Part 1: Invest

The average US car payment is $500 monthly

If that payment was invested into the S&P 500 ($VOO) with an 8% annual return

What is it? 🤔

Reselling Books is exactly what it sounds like

We resell books we find for 25¢ - $2 on Amazon for $16+

Once you get a good understanding of “quality locations” to source

You start consistently finding those
$30 - $100+ books

Like these 👇🏿
How does it work? 🤔

Book Reselling can be broken down into 3 steps

1) Sourcing - finding Profitable Books to sell

2) Shipping - send Profitable Books to an Amazon warehouse

3) Selling - amazon sells your books and ships to buyers
