This means that you just appear to be one of many, and standard sales pitch will be littering internet. Your interested purchaser has probably seen some of these already. Why should they take notice of your one penny auction for same product?
Lace your auction description with personal and credible information about product, and you will get some of those prospective buyers to go with you.
Incidentally, you could find that your one penny auctions are removed by eBay. After all, a one penny auction doesn't bring eBay very much by way of listing or final value fee.
If this happens to you, you could try system 2 below, and you can also place your one penny auction on other auction sites such as Yahoo, Amazon, QXL etc
2. The Not as Simple System
With this system, you need to do a little research before you launch your eBay auction for your affiliate product.
The objective here is to create a package of items which are related to your affiliate products, and which you auction at 0.99 cents or pence.
First off, you need to create a 2 or 3 page report about your affiliate product. Ideally this should be based on your personal experience with product. Failing that, it should be written in your own personal style. The key point is that it must include your affiliate link to product.
The next step is to find other items for your "package", you do this by using Google search to locate related free products.
Let's suppose you're an affiliate for an ebook which teaches how to paint and draw figures. On Google you would search for something like "figure drawing" free.
It took me under 10 minutes to locate following freebies:
Photographing Your Artwork (free ebook) 3D Figure Drawing Studio software (free trial) How to Sell Your Art (free newsletter)
And there are many more you could unearth given a little more research time. Be a little careful in your selection - you don't want to give away something which will compete with your affiliate ebook.
Having found your items, what you now do is bundle them up and add them to your 2/3 page report. You then create an auction which offers whole package for 99 cents or pence.
There's no way eBay can possibly object to this auction.
As you can see, all it really takes to get your affiliate product in front of eBay's massive market place is a little creativity.
