Noted inspirational author Robert Collier died in 1950; however, his wisdom and insights are just as applicable today for achieving eBay success. By pointing out that success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out, he reminds us of this simple but timeless truth.
To demonstrate, consider each item below. If you only focus on one, and commit to spending at least 30 minutes a day doing it, you will see success. Of course the more effort you put in, the better the results.
1. Research, Research, Research!
Research forms the basis of any solid eBay success plan. From researching the competition to price shopping to product sourcing to understanding your target customer, information is power. Begin gathering it now.
2. Build Powerful Listing Descriptions

3. Educate Buyers about Your Product
You will surely increase your chances of achieving eBay success by educating buyers instead of straight selling. For example, you can offer a newsletter, write a blog post, or create a Facebook fan page. As a result, you will attract a loyal audience who will be receptive to your product offerings.
4. Automate Your Inventory Management
Do yourself a favor – and make your life a whole lot easier – by investing in quality inventory management software such as Esa Product Manager. As a result, you’ll be able to seamlessly import listings back and forth to other ecommerce sites such as Shopify, Etsy and Bigcommerce while easily tracking quantities and orders.
In the end, your level of eBay success, or any other success in life, is entirely up to you. To underscore this fundamental point, Collier reminds us of another simple but timeless truth by noting that, “your chances of success in any undertaking can always be measured by your belief in yourself.”
