Resources for Online Sellers

Guest Author - Kim O´Shea

Information is the key to success. The more we know about a subject the easier it is for us to master it. This especially holds true when it comes to selling in Online Auctions. There is so much competition out there that the only way to get ahead is to be more knowledgeable than your competitor.

There are a lot of very useful websites around to help you achieve your goals. Where do you start?

The first thing you need is information on your marketplace. Keep up to date by being a regular visitor to these sites. Sign up for the newsletters which contain a wealth of great information. Don’t just sign up and delete the emails as they come in, take the time to at least scan through the contents. You will be surprised at the amount of free, helpful hints and advice you will pick up.

Give these a try but keep looking for others.

Another important resource is finding out where you can buy products quickly and cheaply. The following sites, one UK based and the other US based are extremely important so make sure you check them out thoroughly. They list some great wholesalers and you don’t need to pay a subscription to access the info.

You will find dropshippers here and can visit their sites to check out their terms and pricing and to compare notes. These two sites are used by a lot of the top auction sellers. Check back often as new listings are added regularly.

If you intend to sell as a business you will need extra space to store your photos. There are lots of sites offering free web space. Your own ISP will usually be able to allow you access to extra space. Contact them for details. If you need more or if your ISP only offers extra space at a price, the following sites are easy to use and free.

Some sites are ideal for the novice as they cater for people selling in Online Auctions and offer step by step guides to getting your photos onto the auction site. Most of the Online Auction sites allow you to add a couple of images into the body of the item description for free.

Make use of this handy extra advertising. Add the images at the end of the description so they will not detract from your carefully worded piece. You can mention that there are more images available at the bottom of the page but this should not really be necessary.
