How to start from the ground up on Ebay!

My name is Gabriel Sharp and I am the proud owner of Superior Cargo here in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I started selling on Ebay part time a little over a year ago. In that time I have already grown to a feedback rating over 200 and Top Rated Seller status. I have also garnered Powerseller status and I look forward to 2012 being another huge year. I get lots of questions from from friends who want to know " How Do I Get Started With No Money". Its actually quite simple for anyone to get started with just a few business cards. First you will need to come up with a name and a pitch that will be your starting point. Second you can invest just $10 with VistaPrint  plus shipping and receive 250 very professional business cards. Third when you receive your cards throw on your most professional outfit and hit your local Flea Market. This is where your pitch comes into play as you will need to garner the interest of the dealers you want to sell for. You will need a digital camera as well but most people have these, and if not they have become rather inexpensive. You will need to set a commission that you charge if the item sells. Let them know that all you do is take pictures then come back with cash once the item sells. When they know the item never leaves their store until it sells it makes your pitch extremely interesting. You then throw in the fact that you handle all the shipping and they are usually sold. You of course have some that do it themselves, but the majority of Flea Market Merchants are old school with not much internet experience. So start snapping pictures, listing items, and making money. You need to make sure you count the Ebay fees into your commission. I charged 25% and then used the money made to start investing in my own merchandise. Make sure you invest time in your descriptions and pictures. This is how you being your journey to being an Ebay Powerseller.
