to informational products (advertising

publications, reports, etc) that dont even require shipping!

- something specific), and see how well it has done on eBay in the
past by searching similar completed auctions:

same item may bring much higher bids in one auction than it does another...
Pay close attention to the differences in their ads: Starting/Ending
Time, Title or Headline, Description & Photos.
items, such as computers & electronics, tend to bring the highest
bid when they end on Saturday night. Keep in mind the time zone
differences, and try not to set auctions to end during church time
or business hours on either the east coast or the west coast. Internet
advertising, and informational products (which target the office
worker or home business owner) might do best on a weekday in the
afternoon hours. Get the idea?

Your eBay About
Once you sign up for your free
eBay account, and get ready to sell, be sure to set up
your About Me profile page! This is the one place that you can tell
all of your potential bidders about yourself, your website, and
your product line. What you arent allowed to include in your auction description...
you CAN include here! A colorful "me" image shows up beside your

auction listing to your About Me page by saying “Visit My
About Me Page to Learn More about Your Seller!”
See these examples:
& Back-end Sales
Be sure that you use a signature
file in all email communication with bidders & auction winners.
Include information about your website, your contact information,
and include a PS if you would like to bring their attention to something
else they may be interested in.
Include your flyer,
info-packet and/or business card when shipping the package! This
works best when you are selling products that are related to your
printed material, or that reach the same targeted market ;)
Follow up with your auction winners via email
and make sure that they received the item and are happy with it.
Encourage them to leave you feedback, and do the same for them.
This promotes confidence in future potential bidders that you are
a legitimate seller.
