Got it all in front of you? Great!

Now search eBay for each item you have, or comparable items. Make a note of their prices so you have a guide. If your items are "worthless" - i.e. they're only selling for a buck or two, then don't bother (unless you have a lot of them). If you've got any "hot" items, put them to one side.

Before you list you may find a Digital Camera handy. If you don't have one don't worry, but you can buy them now for around $40 and they DO make a hell of a difference to your listings.

List all your normal stuff. Don't spend too much on featured listings, such as Bold, Gallery etc forrepparttar cheaper items. And don't worry about postage costs -repparttar 116795 buyer pays these! Make sure you list them at a good time, i.e. around 7-9 pm, and preferably on a Sunday Evening. This means a 7 day Auction will END at 7-9pm on a Sunday Evening - more people surfing :-)

Now list your HOT items. If you have any collectibles, such as coins, toys, books etc, or you have rare items, NOW'srepparttar 116796 time to splash out on featured listings. It depends on how much you expectrepparttar 116797 item to sell for.

For any item you can place a Buy It Now option. Only do this ifrepparttar 116798 item is pretty common and sells well, or you want to "fake"repparttar 116799 value. For example, if a Buy It Now price is $80 andrepparttar 116800 winner ends up bidding $50 he *thinks* he has a bargain.

After everything is listed keep an eye on your items in your "My Ebay" page. It shows you everything. And be sure to answer questions from interested buyers promptly.

After your 7 days are up collectrepparttar 116801 payments and shiprepparttar 116802 items. PayPal isrepparttar 116803 easiest way to accept payments, and eBay owns PayPal so it's all automated. You can withdrawrepparttar 116804 funds from PayPal to your Bank Account directly.

Do this for two or three weeks then you have some cash behind you to get started on your main business!

10. Print out flyers and mail them out to local stores and shops. Let them know what you are offering and give your phone number. Flyers can be passed out in parking lots as well. Make sure you have permission.

11. Contact radio stations and offer your products as prizes for contests for some great exposure.

12. Talk to schools, churches, and other organizations that might be interested in using your products for fundraisers.

13. Have your catalogs and biz cards with you at kidsí sports events. You could easily get orders just by arousing interest in your catalogs.

14. There are so many things you can do. Everytime you get or hear of an idea that interests you, write it down in your planner or notebook. Organize your marketing and advertising efforts and ideas.

15. Local Papers - Run your ads in local newspapers. You can usually get these at very reasonable rates. Ask your local paper if they would consider doing a story about your business. Local papers frequently do a write up for local business owners.

Building a home business takes time and effort and then some, but do not give up. Have passion for your business and for your customers. You can succeed!
