A Great Way to Make Money With eBay

May 6, 2008

When you hear “eBay” and “money” in the same sentence your probably think of becoming an eBay seller.

You place product listings in the eBay marketplace, buyers bid, you pay your eBay seller fees and what you have left is your profit margin.

There is, however, another way to build a business which still revolves around eBay but which doesn’t involve you selling a single thing in the eBay marketplace.

This “other way” opportunity is based on the eBay affiliate program and a great tool which makes entry into this opportunity not only possible but also super easy. This tool is called “Build A Niche Store“.

Now if you don’t know – an affiliate program enables you as an individual internet entrepreneur to promote the products of a company in exchange for a commission on all sales that you refer.

You are basically operating as an internet middleman and connecting internet browsers to particular products and companies through you own network of websites and marketing methods.

If we return to the eBay affiliate program, eBay actually invites you to promote all of the product listings in the eBay marketplace and in exchange for your efforts will pay you up to 75% of the revenue they make from each sale you refer plus up to $25 for each new active eBay member you refer.

What this means is that you can earn up to three quarters of eBay’s revenue simply for connecting people to the products listed in the eBay marketplace.

Not only do you get to partner with the best branded marketplace in the world, you also get access to and control over ALL of the products listed in this marketplace. The eBay product inventory becomes YOUR product inventory and yet you do NOT have to stock items, deal with customers, organize shipping
or process refunds.

You are no longer limited to selling only those products which you can buy and sell for a profit margin. You can choose ANY niche market and promote those eBay products relevant to your chosen niche outside of the eBay marketplace, funnelling targeted traffic through to eBay and into your own affiliate commissions.

Golf clubs, race cars, computers, cat collars, pearl necklaces, Beach Front real estate…

If you know eBay you know how BIG it is – there are NO limits.

At this point you might be thinking – well this sounds interesting but in reality is there any money in it? Well, here’s the shocker – eBay’s top affiliates make over 1 million dollars a month. That’s right – 8 figures a year without stocking, selling or shipping a single thing!

Now eBay does provide some basic free tools to help you succeed as an eBay affiliate and build an affiliate business BUT it has been the development of a tool outside of eBay that has really opened this up as a legitimate business opportunity.

The tool, as I mentioned earlier, is called “Build A Niche Store” and what it enables you to do is build eBay affiliate websites targeted to any eBay niche you want. These act as the medium through
which you funnel targeted visitors to eBay.

Here are a couple of examples, one targeting Lawn Mowers and the other Hair Care Products:

Lawn Mower eBay Affiliate Website

Hair Care Affiliate Website

As you can see, these are professional looking websites that contain all of those eBay products related to their target niche inside a searchable store format, each of which automatically contains your eBay affiliate id.

These stores then automatically update as new products are listed for saleand old listing expire from the eBay marketplace and the software has built in development features which enable you to create new store pages, add content to these pages, create content pages, modify your template etc etc.

Basically, in the space of about 10 minutes (once you are familiar with how the software works) you can create a fully functional eBay affiliate website targeted to the niche market of your choice.

Your store content is all search engine friendly which will provide the foundation for attracting targeted traffic from the search engines and you can then use the development features to attract more targeted visitors which will in turn mean more eBay affiliate commissions.

It really is a brilliant concept and the support is great, both from the guys behind the project and the member forum which you get lifetime access to when you purchase the product.

Build A Niche Store comes with a step by step user manual which will walk even the most technically inexperienced through setting up their eBay affiliate website, 9 professional template layouts which can be customized (from inside your admin panel) to match your target niche, lifetime member forum access, comprehensive product support and possibly most importantly – an UNLIMITED domain license which means you can build as many of these niche websites as you want for the small one time fee.

Think about how many niches eBay caters to!

How big could your eBay affiliate business be?!

I’ve personally built 19 niche sites in the last 6 weeks and my income is growing weekly. This product gets my full recommendation – check it out today…

Together Everyone Achieves More

April 30, 2008

The online market place is not easy.  There are many get rich quick scams and schemes that are plastered all over the internet.  Thousands of so called gurus promoting their success tools and sites that make online riches look easy to obtain.  How many ebooks have you bought?  How many programs have you subscribed to that didn’t work?  How much money have you thrown out the internet window?  How much time have you spent trying this and that with nothing much to show for it?  I know, I’ve been there.  I’ve bought into many of the promotions, never to earn a single dime.  But my urge to buy the next big thing has greatly diminished since I’ve learned what a true opportunity smells like…

That’s why I’ve started this blog.   To help you find the legitimate money maker business opportunities online.  Opportunities that probably won’t make you rich overnight but have a real good chance of building your wealth over time when you put in the work necessary.

Many of these opportunities have come to me through a wonderful community of internet entrepreneurs at OSI Rock Stars.  Led by the Online Success Institute founder and eBay guru Janelle Elms, this training and education website teaches you how to succeed online.  It is an interactive and constantly growing site teaching the skills and resources to survive and thrive in the online market place.

Rock Stars understand this and that giving back is another piece of the success puzzle.  The OSIRockStars community is like a T.E.A.M.  A group of individuals striving to succeed online but realizing that Together Everyone Achieves More.  I invite you to join us in choosing success!
