How to Sell on eBay?

EBay allows sellers and buyers worldwide to make transactions in a virtual environment. This method allows users to sell on eBay a few items that would normally be sold at garage sales for most likely a lower price because the number of potential buyers is much larger. Experienced sellers can also use eBay to resell wholesale products by creating an eBay store or simply at auction. Success rates will improve by learning how to sell on eBay.

First, a new user of eBay must register as a seller with them by providing a valid name, address and phone number, as well as establishing preferred payment options. PayPal provides convenience, processing speed and confidentiality; however, varied circumstances may require other payment options. For example, you may want to accept money orders for those customers who don’t have a bank account. Of course, you don’t ship your items to such customers until their money order has cleared your account. Just be sure to state that policy in your listings.

Sellers are encouraged to make a few purchases before attempting to sell on eBay. Buying items from eBay will help new users become familiar with the format and experience. It will also allow the new seller to receive some feedback from completed purchases. The feedback system can help bolster the credibility of the seller. This is a very important point, perhaps the most important one in becoming a successful eBay seller. You want to do everything in your power to prevent bad feedback. More than one or two percent of your buyers or sellers complaining about you could hurt your sales dramatically. Don’t make promises you can’t deliver. If it might take a day or two to ship an item don’t promise expedited delivery. If your item is used don’t say that it is brand new. That might help you make that one sale but the negative feedback you will receive will cost you many more.

After establishing an account and becoming familiar with the environment, determine what to sell on eBay. Common items include used electronics, computers, collectibles, and uniquely crafted items. EBay can also be used to promote products for a physical store, in order to expand the customer base of a product or business. Some businesses solely operate online, selling wholesale products on eBay. Hand made items do very well if they are either useful or unique in function or appearance.

It is important to be familiar with the rules that eBay has defined; failing to follow the rules by selling forbidden or restricted items can result in account suspension or termination. Products most likely to sell on eBay include a complete description that specifies the weight and measurements to determine shipping costs. Noteworthy information about the product should be stated clearly, especially any defects or flaws. Remember, negative feedback from disgruntled buyers can impact future sales. If you think that you have found some “trick” that will bring more buyers to your listing than it deserves, you are probably wrong. It’s most likely been tried many times before and eBay is looking for it. Honesty is without a doubt the best possible policy.

Include a descriptive title that uses key words relevant to the product; searching for similar products helps with developing the description. Pictures add to the description and help to instill confidence in a potential buyer. Use correct grammar and spelling as well as proper terminology to refer to the product; buyers are more likely to purchase from a seller who seems knowledgeable and informed about the product listed.

Products can be set at a fixed price, or products can be sold through an online auction with a minimum bid and a deadline. An auction can be useful for items that have an uncertain value or a value that fluctuates rapidly. However, if a seller has a price in mind for a product, a fixed price may be more suitable. You can also elect to do both. List some of your items at a fixed price and others at an auction. On auctions you can also list a price that you will accept immediately which is higher than the minimum bid. For example, your item starts bidding at one dollar. You have a minimum guarantee of three dollars before you will let the item go but you could also list a buy it right away price of five dollars. If a customer doesn’t want to mess with watching the auction throughout its run and possibly lose the item, they may prefer to skip the one dollar minimum bid and be sure they will get it for five bucks. As you can see, there are many options on how to sell on eBay.

When all options are completed, the seller must submit the product in order for it to become available to buyers. The seller should then monitor the listing for questions and answer them promptly, in order to avoid missed opportunities. Answwering questions from buyers quickly will result in fewer negative reviews from disgruntled buyers and also get more sales from satisfied customers. Once the item has sold, the seller must still process the sale and obtain feedback to ensure buyer satisfaction.

Processing the sale includes verifying the payment was received and shipping the product. The seller should package the product well to ensure it arrives intact, and ship it via the agreed upon method. The seller should follow up with the buyer and answer any questions, including providing tracking to ensure the package arrives. In fact, it’s highly recommended to email the buyer and let them know that their item has been shipped. Also advisable is to add a note to that email about how you want them to be satisfied with their purchase and to let you know if the package doesn’t arrive on time or if they are unsatisfied in any way. Once any questions are resolved, the seller should request that the buyer leave feedback on eBay to add to future credibility. Continuing to sell on eBay successfully will increase positive feedback and ensure success.

Hopefully you have found this post useful in determining how to sell on eBay. If you follow these guidelines you will have few problems with buyers or with the staff at eBay. Congratulations on your decision to become an online entrepreneur!

  24. Sewing and Alteration Services
  25. Business Assistance Services (Setting up books, taxes, incorporating, keeping inventory, hiring, etc.)

If none of these home business ideas are suitable to you, concentrate on what expertise you have that other individuals or companies might be willing to pay for. Also consider going to work for a company that performs the service you’re interested in and learn the business while earning dollars! Don’t be too concerned about how much the job pays since you will also be getting a free education!

There are two main differences between employment and self-employment that cause most new business failures. First; no one will be watching over you to make sure you get up on time, get a task done on time, or put in a good day’s work. You will have to be your own tackmaster! Second; business presents a never-ending list of problems. Everything that can go wrong will go wrong. You may never have been aware of this as an employee because your boss always dealt with the obstacles. Those business owners that give up when they hit a roadblock will fail. Those who find solutions to problems will thrive. If you aren’t prepared to be stopped in your tracks from time to time or if you think self-employment means lots of time on the golf course, you should probably concentrate on education and experience that will entitle you to a good-paying job and leave the entrepreneurship to others.

On the other hand, there are very few things in life that will reward you like being your own boss! Those problems can be a pain but when you find the solution it can be exhilarating! Like anything else in life, when the risk is great, so is the reward! Good luck!

How to Write a Resume?

How to Write a Resume

The key element in obtaining employment is convincing a prospective employer that you are the applicant that will be best for the position available. The only way, however, that the employer can consider you is if you supply them with all of the information they need in order to make a decision. Without that, you will most likely not even be considered. Simply knowing what to include will put you well on your way to learning how to write a resume.

A typical resume provides the following data:


Your Name

This may seem like an obvious step but you would be surprised to find out how many resumes don’t have the name attached. “My name was on the cover letter” or “it was on the envelope” are common excuses. Your name should be on a separate line at the top of the resume in bold print that’s a few font sizes larger than the rest of the text on the resume. You could also include “Resume for” prior to your name if you wish.


Contact Information

Next you should list your full address and telephone number. It should immediately follow your name (with a space or two in between of course) so that if you are the applicant chosen to get the job, the personel manager will not have to hunt for your name or telephone number. “Why do they need my address”, you might ask. Well … most of the other applicants will include that information and if you don’t, it could place doubt about you in the employers mind and someone else will get your job.

If you are often unavailable at your home address and/or telephone number for any reason, list alternate ways you can be reached. It would be a shame to lose the job because the employer couldn’t reach you on the phone!


Your Objective

Many companies hire for multiple positions at the same time. The next thing you should list is what job you are applying for. No matter how obvious you may think it is, it doesn’t hurt to spell this out. If you are applying for a position that will require you to develop a new department in the company, list what objectives you want to achieve for that department. Again, think of what things would likely be important to the employer when formulating that type of objective.


Education

In this section, you need to detail what training you may have had that qualifies you for the job. If there’s a college degree required, list the degree you earned, the name of the institution, dates you attended or graduated, and a telephone number where they can confirm your degree. If you leave it up to the employer to find this information, they may simply move on to the next applicant who did include it.

If you had a course at a technical college or even in high school that applies to the position, list it here. If you’ve done self-study of an applicable subject, list it and give a short explaination of how much and what type of study you accomplished.

Be sure to include the highest level of formal education you achieved. If you finished one year of college, list it! The employer certainly won’t assume you have more education than you have stated.


Work Experience

List your first job first and then proceed down the page. You should list at least your last three jobs. If you are fifty years old and have had three management positions over the last 16 years, you really don’t need to detail the fast food job you had at 16-years-old. It doesn’t hurt, however to first state that you were regularly employed since age 16 with no terminations if that’s the case.

If you have less than three years of employment to detail in your last three jobs, it becomes much more important to be comprehensive here. And, of course, if you had a job five jobs ago that provided you with experience for the position you are applying for, it’s imperative that you list jobs back that far.

List the name of each employer, address, telephone number, and the name of your immediate supervisor there, if possible. Include the month and year you started and left each job. List what you did at each one and detail anything that directly or indirectly applies to the job you are writing this resume for.

If you’ve got a great reason why you have no prior jobs, list a short explanation here. For example; “No prior work experience. My main goal was to concentrate on my studies at Whatever University where I graduated last month.” Or, “No prior work experience. I’m a sophomore at Whatever High School and looking forward to my first job with LIST THE COMPANY NAME YOU ARE APPLYING TO HERE.”

Keep in mind here that gaps in employment don’t make you look good. If you took three years off to have a child or go back to school, include that information here. Don’t simply leave those years as a big question mark in the mind of the prospective employer!

Numerous short-term jobs also can be detrimental to your application. Would you want to hire a new employee for a job that takes six months of training when that employee hasn’t stayed at their last three jobs for more than three months each? If you had a job that you left quickly for a good, positive reason list that reason. For example, you may have gotten another and better job offer after only one month. No one should blame you for taking the better job. If you were able to give the employer you left a couple of weeks notice, list that too. That shows you were thoughtful of them even though you were leaving.

While this bit of advice won’t help much in preparing today’s resume, it merits mentioning for those who are early in their work lives. Think about what you do today so you won’t have to explain things on your resume one or two decades from now. Don’t be too quick to leave a job because you aren’t thrilled about it or the boss. Someday you may lose a job because you appear too nitpicky to the next employer. If you can smile for awhile, stay a reasonable length of time, get a new job, and try to give the jerk two weeks notice, you will benefit greatly in the future. No one is suggesting that you stick around and deal with a totally unacceptable situation. Just think about whether telling an employer who didn’t give you your 90-day raise or made you work three Saturdays in a row to take his job and shove it will hurt him more or hurt you more.


A Final Note

Is there anything else you have done in your life that applies to the job you are applying for or simply shows you might be a really decent and/or hard-working human being? Anything that shows you are a sociable person? Is there anything else that might qualify you for this job?

Maybe you’ve done charitable work or worked in the Peace Corps. Are you a member of the Knights of Columbus or similar group. Did you serve Thanksgiving dinner at the soup kitchen last Thanksgiving? Just two warnings here. Be informative but don’t sound vain. “Served Thanksgiving dinner to disadvantaged citizens at the Salvation Army kitchen 2001-2006” sounds wonderful! “I gave up Thanksgiving Dinner with my family from 2001-2006 so that homeless people could have a nice meal” might sound like you are a bit taken with yourself.

If you are applying for a job as an auto mechanic, listing the fact that you totally rebuilt a 1955 DeSoto might be something worth mentioning.

If you are applying for your first job, maybe list here that you are very responsible for your age. If you have been babysitting for three years, explain a bit about why you feel that experience has made you a dependable and responsible young person.

You get the picture. If it makes you look good without making you sound like you are vain, list it. Don’t rattle on and on and on though. Keep it short and sweet.

In closing, take a look at the sample resume below:

How to Write a Book?

How to Write a Book

So you want to be an author. You think you have some pretty good writing skills but you aren’t quite sure about how to get started or whether you’re covering all the bases. So let’s take a look at the step by step process of writing an action or dramatic book:

  1. Pick a subject. Do you know anything about this subject? Will the subject matter keep your interest?
  2. Write a diagram of where your story is going. How will it begin? How will it end? What major steps will take it from beginning to end?
  3. Develop the main characters. What are the names of the main three or four characters? How do they relate to each other? How did their past lives bring them to their circumstances in your book? Has the hero always been a hero or do they find themselves thrown into a heroic situation beyond their control? In other words, know your main characters before you begin writing!
  1. Let the reader get to know the main characters before the events become to involved. The reader needs to be able to identify with why the characters might be doing what they’re doing. Tell a short story about what’s going on in each character’s life right before the action or drama begins. Those stories should leave no doubt in the reader’s mind about whether each character is brave/cowardly, kind/cruel, intelligent/dim-witted, etc.
  2. Consider starting the action or drama with a mystery. For example, instead of having the main character immediately attacked by someone, why not have the main character find out that someone is watching them? Why is that person watching them? Maybe another character (a friend or working associate perhaps) tells them that they also suspect they’re being watched. Then the first character is attacked and abducted while the second fears they’ll be next and begins looking for answers to what’s going on. They go to a third character for assistance. The action or drama is much more enjoyable when there’s a “build up” to it! Of course, if the book is non-fiction, you should remain true to the facts.
  3. Disclose some new aspects of a main character that you didn’t originally detail. Something shocking that explains a bit about what’s going on or develops totally new questions.
  4. Consider using exotic locations and describe them. Tell the reader why the character(s) are there. Tie the locations into the story.
  5. Keep referring back to the diagram you wrote to ensure that you’re not drifting too far from the storyline. It’s ok to make changes to the diagram as you go along. Just make sure that those changes don’t ruin the “flow” of the entire diagram from the beginning to the end of the story!

If you’re book is going to be instructional, here are some things to consider. Note that they are very similar to those for the fiction writer:

  1. Pick a subject. Do you consider yourself an expert on this subject? If not, how will you get the knowledge necessary to write your book? Will the subject matter keep your interest?
  2. Write a diagram of your book. What are the main topics it will explore? What secondary topics must be explained in order for the reader to understand the main topics?
  3. Ensure that you’ve given the reader enough background knowledge to understand what you’re talking about. For example, if you’re writing a book about quantum physics for scientists, you don’t need to explain anything about basic scientific theory to them. You assume they already know that stuff. If you’re telling the same information to sixth grade science students, you need to provide any underlying knowledge they’ll need to understand the main theme of the book. More importantly, you need to explain those things in a way that a typical sixth grade student will understand. Don’t assume that anything is easy based upon your level of expertise in the subject matter! (This is an extremely common mistake by experts in their fields).
  4. Try to make your subject matter fun! If your book is a chore to read, it won’t appeal to large numbers of readers.
  5. Keep referring back to the diagram you wrote for your book to ensure that you don’t leave out any vital support material.

How to Start Your Own Business?

How to Start Your Own Business

Everyone knows the potential advantages of starting ones own business. Self-employed people decide what they’re going to do every day rather than having someone else assign your duties. Once you are self-employed, you will have (hopefully) chosen a business that you love instead of being stuck in some job you can’t stand. You will hire your employees, thus deciding with whom you work. If you want to play golf next Wednesday, no one will tell you different. The amount of time you can vacation each year will be totally your decision. You will also have pride in yourself for building a successful business.

So that’s the way that many people think of their future when they decide to start their own business for the first time. In the real world, it’s rarely that rosy a picture! While you and only you decide what you’ll do each day, if you decide wrong it could destroy your business. You may have chosen a business that you love but it could be unrealistic and therefore you go broke. Plus, people often think they’ll love doing something for life but the attraction eventually wears off and it becomes just like any other job. You can hire people you’ll love to work with but if they’re so personable that they don’t get any work done … well, you get the picture and you may have to fire people that you really like! You can take Wednesday off to play golf but will your business fall apart while your on the thirteenth hole? You may not be able to take any vaction for years until you have employees that can run things while you’re gone.

So how do professionals ensure that these problems (and many others) don’t happen? You can bet that billionaires don’t start a new business venture simply because it sounds like fun. They have a series of steps they take to reduce the number of future problems. Make no mistake about it though. Every business encounters problems on a regular basis that could potentially kill the business. If you’re not the type of person who can handle pressure, you may not want to start your own business.

The first and most important step in starting a business is determining the type of business. People are rarely successful in building their own businesses unless they really love what they’re doing. You shouldn’t guess here. If you haven’t actually worked in the field, you should first work for someone else for a while. This will allow you to see whether you truly love that type of work and you’ll get valuable experience while earning a paycheck. Starting a business where you have no previous experience is a recipe for disaster! Your chances of failure go way up!

You also need to consider whether you have sufficient money to start your own business or whether you have the necessary assets and business acumen to convince a bank to lend you the money. The typical new business does not generate a profit or a paycheck for the owner for a year or two. Your banker won’t be as excited as you are about your new business so don’t think your idea is so great that they will throw money at you. They will be more concerned about whether you will be able to repay the loan and they will want proof or other assets (such as your home) to secure the loan.

Step #2 in starting your own business is to write a business plan. If you want a business loan, you will have to do this. A bank won’t talk to you without one. The business plan shows step-by-step how you will take your business from startup to profitability. Even if you don’t need a loan, a business plan is probably the most important step in making your business successful and it’s probably also the most often skipped step. Make no mistake about it. If you don’t know where you’re going in business, you’ll probably get lost and lost business people go broke.

Step #3 is to pick a name for your business. This is one of the fun steps but it’s still a serious one. You are not allowed to use a name for a business that is already being used by another business (with a very few exceptions). When choosing a name, avoid including your name. Think about it. Would you rather do business with “Jim’s Muffler Repair” or “Quality Muffler Repair”? Another thing to consider is how your business name will hurt or help your advertising efforts. Businesses are typically listed alphabetically in phone books and in online directories. People looking for businesses often call or click on the first listing or the first one with an interesting name. So “ZZZ Muffler Repair” would obviously be undesirable. On the other hand, “AAA Muffler Repair” is probably already taken. Phone companies and directory webmasters often won’t list businesses with that type of prefix because all of their other customers threaten to pull their advertising. So use a thesaurus to find a word that is nearer the beginning of the alphabet and sounds good. For example, change “Quality Muffler Repair” to “Excellent Muffler Repair”. If you have a webmaster that’s building you a website, you might also want to consult them on what name might be best for use on the web. It can make a huge difference!

Step #4 is to officially form your business. In most cases, you should incorporate your business as this protects your personal assets if the business fails. In some cases it may make sense to form an individual proprietorship which is otherwise known as a DBA (“doing business as”). This just involves notifying everyone in your immediate area that you are doing business as: “Your Business Name”. It’s not terribly expensive to form a corporation so if you have a home with equity or any other substantial assets, you should probably incorporate. Keep in mind though that if you take a loan for your business and allow the bank to take a lien on your home, that home can be foreclosed on if you don’t make the business loan payments even if you’ve formed a corporation. The corporation simply keeps creditors from taking your home if you haven’t given them a separate lien.

Step #5 is only necessary if you need money in order to start your own business. You and your business plan (don’t forget it!) have to convince a banker to loan you the money for your new business. If you’re unsuccessful at banks, you may want to check out the US Small Business Administration. Loans through them are not as easy to get as most people believe. You will still have to convince them that your business has a reasonable chance of success based upon your education, experience, and business plan. If you get turned down, ask the loan officer why your application was rejected. Be polite and respectful! Make sure they know you’re not mad at them, you simply want to know what you need to improve before trying again! Then forget how amazing you think you are and listen! If everyone says you lack the necessary experience, don’t get mad! Get more experience! Of course, you could always ask friends or family for the money but don’t be surprised if they also think you’re not ready to tackle your own business.

Once you have a business plan and money, there are dozens of things to do. You may need to lease a location for your office, store, restaurant, or whatever. You will need to register your business with whichever government organizations (city, county, state) require that in your area and secure licenses where necessary. If you will be hiring employees you’ll need an employer identification number (commonly referred to as “EIN”). Business insurance is nearly always a must and if you will be selling most anything or providing parts along with services you’ll need a “sales tax permit” to collect sales tax and to buy your merchandise wholesale and tax-free (for business use only, of course). Will you need to by office furniture, computers, ovens for your restaurant, or shelving for your consignment shop? You will have to set-up your books or hire a bookkeeper or accountant to do so. What about inventory control software? Turn on utilities. Get phones installed. Buy pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, paper clips, etc., etc., etc.

So hopefully this article has pointed out the pleasures and pitfalls of How To Start Your Own Business. As you can see, there’s much to do just to get to your first dollar of income. Starting your own business is not likely to deliver you into the lifestyle of the rich and famous anywhere in the near future so be sure that you aren’t expecting things to be easy. The rewards can ultimately be great though! There’s nothing like making your own decisions, leading the team, and building a successful business!
