Everyone's talking about eBay these days. With frequency of TV advertising campaigns increasing, and no sign of any sizable competitors eBay empire is only going to get bigger.
Now personally as friends and family hear about eBay they normally come to me for advice, How do I use this feature?, How do I sell this item?, What am I doing wrong? Where do I start? And I'm not just talking about people unfamiliar with net or e-commerce.
I have friends who work within IT industry and they are ones who call me most often! Computer technicians, Network consultants, even company directors of IT firms. It seems that over years of selling on eBay surprisingly we've gained quite a rare skill.
People are slowly realizing that they can turn to eBay to make some extra cash and get rid of some unwanted junk at same time. In last few months I've helped friends and family sell cars, wedding dresses, suites, televisions, videos... I could go on but I'm guessing you may be familiar with a similar situation already.
In fact look though eBay now and see how long it takes you before you see a listing containing following text
"This item is being sold on behalf of a friend so please contact her with any questions on:07500xxx000"
It won't be too long before you find a similar statement.
So why not do it for a living or at least to make some extra cash. Officially eBay has a scheme called Trading Assistants and a directory of a Task on eBay site.
