Build your list 3x faster on Autopilot
You begin to realize that opportunities to make money exist in great abundance, as soon as you get in the habit of looking for these opportunities. And selling used items online is certainly at the top of the list when it comes to big, easy, profitable ways to make a bit of extra money. And while you might not have piles of useful used items laying around your own house, you can usually find great stuff for sale by others! As you begin to visit garage sales and yard sales, you will find that lots of people sell useful items for "get rid of it" prices - items you can sell for more on eBay!
When it comes to shopping at garage sales to make some extra money, the first key is to start with a small-scale operation. Your eBay seller rating is important, so if you start out selling a lot of little items, you will be able to build a solid eBay seller rating early on. The best way to approach the start of your foray into eBay is to start with a small, one-time investment for shopping at garage sales, and this investment will eventually pay you back, and you can use the profits to buy more stuff. Start with about $50, buying lots of smaller items; you can double or triple this money, pay your investment back to yourself, and then use only this money for your garage sale shopping from that point forward! Once your investments begin to pay off, and you have a reservoir of extra money and a seller rating that is solid, you can begin to branch into some higher-priced items. The biggest key here is research; just because you might think something will sell for a high price does not mean it will! Learn to be proactive instead of reactive in your garage sale shopping, knowing what you are looking for before you head out there! Finding items that others want and making these items available for auction is really all there is to making money on eBay. And once you become more and more of a pro at finding items people will want, your small investment will start to seriously grow.
