Beware of seasonal items. Christmas decorations may sell well from October until December, but no one will be buying them in April. If you will be selling seasonal items, make sure you know when their season ends, and don't get stuck with a lot of leftover products. Fads can be great money-makers for short periods of time, but after that, good luck getting rid of them. Think of Beanie Babies, Tickle Me Elmo and Cabbage Patch Kids. All of these fads enjoyed phenomenal sales due to their intense popularity. After boom, however, sales (and prices) dropped immediately. Ride waves of popular items, but beware of their life-cycle. Prepare for end of fad, even as you are beginning selling. Bring something unique to marketplace. This seems difficult - and it can be. If you have access to something unique, such as a specialized book, health product or computer program that other sellers don't have license for, your products will be in demand. This tip is worth putting some time into. Think of ways to obtain such products, or modify existing ones (But be sure of your rights to do so!). Sell what is in demand. Coins, stamps and other collectibles are always in demand. They are easy to buy and easy to sell and ship. If you spend time researching ones that sell best, for most profit, you can do very well in this area. Try to come up with unique ways of presenting these items as well. Hopefully these tips will get you started. Always keep in mind that uniqueness seems to be key to eBay success. Even if you're selling existing and plentiful items, come up with a unique way of selling or packaging them, and you may just find next winner.
Good luck, and happy selling!
