that I’m doing to now when I started out I sold on eBay that it was easy to set up an
account. It was simple and it looked like it could be profitable it actually back in
2009 when I was doing that. It was probably you could actually make money on eBay, but
now it’s so competitive the prices are so low that it’s almost impossible to make a
profit. Now, The good thing is they do allow you 50 free listings right now, but once you
exceed that you’re going to pay $0.35 / listing piano key sign up for store subscription,
he can start off as low as $4.95, but that can grow up to $2,999 a month. He’ll also
get hit with a final value fee and what this is is this is a fee that eBay is going to
charge you when your product actually sells so that’s on top of the listing fee count
sellers with a basic needs. Don’t pay a 10% final value fee for most items with a $750
maximum 12% for books DVDs movies and music with a $750 maximum 2% for select business
and Industrial categories with a tree hundred-dollar maximum. And on top of that tree and a half
percent for musical instruments in here with a $350 maximum seller to maintain a store
subscription. Will they charge to lower fee based on their subscription model as you can
see in this chart right here the star program on an annual subscription fee paid monthly
is $7.95. Now if you pay yearly you’ll see next to that that’s $4.95. The zero insertion
fee allowance auction items are 102. You’re allowed 100 items and a zero insertion fee
allowance fixed price items is also 100. The additional listings fee is for auction item.
$0.30 in additional listings fee for fixed is also $0.30 on top of that. You’re going
to have to pay a 10% final value fee, right and a maximum fee of $750, but that’s a lot
of money out of your profit and most of us don’t have any percentage of profit but then
high as you can see the basic in the premium and anchor go up from there, but the annual
subscription fee when the Enterprise is $3,000 a month, which is tremendous in addition to
that. They had optional listing fees on top of that. So once you’re done doing your listing
we can be quite expensive and addition to that. There’s other things look right here
at the shark got a referral fee which ranges from six to 2minimum referral fee, which is
0 to $2 if the referral fee is under 0% low sellers pay about 15% They got a the minimum
fee and then you got a variable closing fee of a dollar 80 below that you see you’ve got
individual seller account. NFL individual an occasional business sellers your monthly
fee is zero, but your pro merchant account is 3999. Then you got to add your shipping
fees. Okay, so you got to get that product to somebody. Can you get a pay the box it
up and got to pay for somebody to put it in the box and then going to pay for the postage
on top of that. Okay, So let’s take a look at some of the Alternatives that are out there
in the best one. I think out there are one of the best ones out. There would be WordPress.
On WordPress you can build your own website and then you can integrate a shopping cart
into WordPress. Now, there’s some distinct advantages to this in the main advantages.
You don’t pay any fees whatsoever. When you list on your own site and just sell your product
whenever your cost is whatever your shipping is, that’s just a deducted out of the total
selling price of the product sum of what you will say. Well, I don’t have enough traffic
to my site and you know, if I don’t have traffic I’m going to sell anything in that can be
true. But you can also generate your own traffic you could run ads. New social media post you
can build up a following and you can start getting traffic to your website. And you say
what I don’t want to have to spend money on Advertising. Well, you know, either he’s going
to spend money on Advertising which state do and they’re going to charge you in the
form of things cuz that’s what they’re doing isn’t charging you for advertising or you
can go ahead and build your own brand that the advantage is that you’re not on eBay and
you’re not on Amazon then everybody’s just going to see your products if your product
is on eBay and Amazon what Amazon is going to do? Is there going to recommend other products
and other up cells and their likely not going to be yours. They’re going to be other sellers
on that site. So they’re basically taken at customer away from you also want to Amazon
you don’t get your customers information and on eBay, you really don’t I mean it’s there
but you’re not supposed to contact him when your own website you gather all this information.
Can you get a remark it to him you could email to him now and another thing you can do, which
is really pretty cool as you can use card for now. I’m going to put a link to Kartra
below. A lot of us are like Lil G building a website takes a long time and it’s a lot
of work and it is so what if you can skip building the website what if you could actually
just have a sales page and drive people to that particular sales page. That’s where kartra
comes in Cartwright is an excellent platform because it offers so many different things
that offers the sales page it offers your landing pages you’re up cells are down. So
you have your email list in there you have sequences in there. You can host videos in
there and it’s only one platform now in the description. I’m going to put a wig down there
to kartra and what you want to do is click this link and watch the video that they’re
the video will walk you through all the different steps of what cartridge in do and all the
different things that cart that can actually do for you in building your business then
if you want to go ahead and get kartra, you can try it out for $1 for 7 days, but you
got to use that latex down below there and we used car trouble on Oliver finals. We use
the email. Platform part of Italy is all a cartridge cartridge is an excellent software.
It’s not that well-known yet, but it was started with two really good digital marketers that
have been in the market for many many years and they building great platforms. I would
highly recommend you check it out cartridge is you’re not really building a website. You’re
just building the sales page. So you drive traffic to that individual page the advantage
to this is since you don’t have to build a website you can have your product up and running
and you know a half hour. All you got to do is put your sales page up their dry some traffic
to it and you can test out the product if you test out of product and it doesn’t work
think about all the effort you put into building your WordPress website and in doing so the
product didn’t even worked in Kartra, you can spend 30 minutes and put up a product
and another product and other products can put up 10:20 different product Drive traffic
to him and then figure out which ones were now once you get two or three that work within
a particular knee. Then you can build out a website and drive traffic to that website,
but it’s saved you all that hard work of building a website and not knowing if you hit any traffic
or if you get any sales at all to do which is pretty cool is Craigslist. I know I mean
that’s like the cheapest way you can go about it. You can actually list products on Craigslist
for free kitchen go to Craigslist. You can already searched and see what is selling on
Craigslist. What type of items people are buying? Okay here I am at Craigslist here
and we can look through all the different things in here. If you could jobs housing
community services discussion with this is the area that you want to focus on right here.
And that’s it for sale area. Now, I understand if you’re going to be selling on Craigslist,
you can only sell local so you’re actually going to have to deliver these products of
these people, but that doesn’t mean you should shy away from it. Let’s look in here look
under Collectibles at let’s say you were selling Collectibles and then here in Collectibles.
We can sell all these different items in This one here is postcards. This is coins watch
Dance Collection careful because there are some scammy things on Craigslist. You’ll have
people contact you saying that you know, they’re out of the country. Can I just deposit money
into your account things like that? And what they really trying to do is get your account
number. So do not fall for that. They will also tell you that they’re going to send you
a cashier’s check to the most cases these cashiers check are fake and it will probably
clear your bank and then your bank’s going to come back and charge you back afterwards.
So you don’t want to do that. This is a free way to go about selling online, but it can
be very dangerous to sell online on Craig Craigslist. I want to take you away from it,
but you know Craigslist is what it is. There’s a lot of Alternatives out there to selling
on eBay and Amazon but these are just a few ways you can go about it. I really really
think that I need an Amazon or dangerous places to sell on right now because they really kind
of own your customer and if you’re going to be Serious about this new would have a long-term
business you want to ask me build your customer base more importantly you would have build
that new email this because most of the money you’re going to earn his going to come after
that initial sale that are special sale. We’re not even trying to make a profit of if we
can make a profit. That’s great. Don’t get me wrong and I want to make a profit but the
more important thing is having somebody on my list, you know, right now we have thousands
of people on my list whether it’s for tomorrow. Okay food, which is our main company for its
they are Can I know that I can email that list and I can get results so I
can email that list and I can get people in a coaching call. I can email that list, you
know for a course I have and I can sell those courses and if I had sold all the people I
wouldn’t have their names and addresses if I done it once they through Amazon and you
have access to it also on eBay where you do have some access to their name and address
you’re not supposed to directly email them. Anyhow, and you can actually lose your account.
So you wPelican Products, or do I want to sell long-term and it didn’t answer ant to
think about this. Do I want Pelican Products, or do I want to sell long-term and it didn’t
answer is I want to sell a long-term. Then he really need to build your business on your
own site or something like kartra because if you don’t you’re not really building a
business, you’re just selling some products and it’s not sustainable. So you want something
is going to be sustainable in the only way to do that is through emails. If your marketing
these people afterwards and Troop up cells and down cells are great because you’ll see
it happen on Amazon all the time where you know, somebody will buy a product and right
below it and say, you know, you may be interested in these two or people also bought these but
the problem is you can’t control that all of his up cells and down sales on Amazon they
control than what they’re going to do. Is it going to actually upsell to somebody else’s
product so you can never ever increase the value of a customer and you can email them
later on same thing on eBay if you’re not going to be able to up seller down. Link to
Kartra. You can create your own up cells and down south. So you can automate emails to
go out to these people to know if they bought something. I didn’t buy something can you
can send emails based on what they bought two so they can be related products to those.
So those are some of the things you can do like to hear in your comments Below. Have
