"The Final Method to Fast Cash"
by Stuart Reid
There are literally hundreds of ways to make money online today. Everything from affiliate programs, ad revenue, reseller deals and beyond.
The trouble is, they all take time, money and effort to get started!
All is not lost - there still exists one proven strategy that works in a very short time period, costs hardly anything, and can net you a healthy profit.
Don't switch off just yet! The problem with eBay is that it's been "done to death". It's an unfortunate fact that many newbies - very people who NEED this site - have been blinded by sheer amount of spam and even legitimate offers they receive.
Ebay is billed as an "International Community Of Buyers And Sellers" and "The Worlds Biggest Marketplace" - nice taglines, that just happen to be true.
It's so big that WHATEVER you have to sell, SOMEONE wants to buy.
I'm serious. Just take a look.
Now... I don't regard eBay as route to "big" riches (although some powersellers certainly do earn a nice income). Rather, I see it as a way for a newbie to get some cash behind them to enter into really profitable companies. To get their website up and running. To get their promotional activities under way.
Spend just two or three weeks on eBay and you can easily make a couple of hundred (or even thousand) bucks to give you a great start in your marketing efforts.
Here's why I believe this is true:
1. Ebay is CHEAP. It's not cheap as in tacky, it's cheap as in economical. You pay nothing up front, as you're invoiced monthly - and buy then you've already sold what you're selling.
2. It's EASY. Yep. You need no lists, websites, or any of that stuff. Just sign up for a sellers account, and start listing your goods!
3. You can profit QUICKLY. Auctions last 1, 3, 5 or 7 Days. You can also place "Buy It Now" buttons so you can sell as soon as someone wants to buy!
The basics of eBay are very easy to master. First you need something to sell. I'm not going to discuss murky world of selling sites, services, tools and that kind of thing. Nor am I going to discuss how you can use "drop shippers" to sell items at profit without even buying and shipping them yourself (very profitable).
I'm discussing selling whatever you have around house! Search Cellar, Attic, Garage, every nook, cranny and cupboard you have. Pull out EVERYTHING you don't need or use. Don't be a "hoarder" - see it as an opportunity to de-clutter your life and a way to get cash to re-start your future.
