selling should start with strategy
Selling Should Start with STRATEGY!
  • High Volume: Listing Success Rate (LSR)

Strategy: A higher volume of sales yields greater profit in the long run, even if the profit per listing is less. This strategy is great for bulk items.

  • High Profit: Average Selling Price (ASP)

Strategy: A greater profit per sale yields greater overall profit in the long run, even if the conversion rate is lower. This strategy is great for small inventories or less common items.

  • Balanced: LSR x ASP

Strategy: This strategy tries to strike a balance between increasing conversion rate and earning more per sale in order to get the greatest profit in the long run. This strategy is great for selling common items at non-bulk rates.

strategic selling tips
Strategic Selling Tips
  • Expand Slowly and Cautiously
    • Some sellers on eBay readily attempt to sell anything you can imagine, however, it is often more profitable to focus in on something that you can specialize in and do better than any other seller.
  • Gauge Product Demand
    • Demand is the key to eBay business profitability.
    • Timing is extremely important.
    • Learning to pick a hot product before it becomes hot is a valuable skill that comes from knowing that market. (Research, Research, Research!)
    • High demand and low supply translate into higher prices. As demand increases, supply will eventually overtake it and prices will gradually move downward. At the end of a product’s popularity, liquidation stock in the market will cause prices to basically bottom-out. This will happen very fast, often in a matter of weeks not months or years.

  • Gauge Product Supply
    • A careful analysis of the competitive landscape is always important before jumping into a new market. If the market is already saturated with sellers who have better pricing and access to product than you, you may want to look elsewhere for more profitable business ventures
  • Marketability
    • Clearly it won't matter what products you sell if your customers aren't buying.
  • Profit Margin
    • The best selling products won't earn a seller much if their margin is too small.
  • Some questions to keep in mind while selecting products for resale.
    • Would you buy it and use it yourself?
    • Can you see yourself getting excited about this product or service?
    • Would you sell it to someone you know?
    • Is there a real need for the product in today's market?
