From Ebay Zero to Power-Selling Hero: The Devil Is In The Details
If you've ever heard the expression "the devil is in the details," you can probably already guess how it relates to today's lesson. The bulk of the work you do as an Ebay seller will be easy and repetitive, but it is the minor details that will make or break your business. In today's lesson, I am going to talk about the single most important "detail" - and why you absolutely must pay attention to it if you want to be successful selling on Ebay.
At some point in your career as an Ebay seller, you probably stumbled over two types of sellers that completely bewildered you: the first type was selling items for absolutely stupid prices--so low that they couldn't possibly be making a profit; in contrast, the second type was selling items for unbelievably high prices. . .and somehow getting bids.
The second type of seller knows that the devil is the details--the details being your auction title and description.
Knowing this seemingly insignificant piece of information and putting it into practice makes all the difference in the world. It can literally mean the difference between 25 and 250 auction views.
The amount of traffic you receive on Ebay is dependent on the keyphrases and keywords you use to form your title and the keywords and keyphrases you pepper throughout your description.
While there are a number of ways to navigate Ebay, almost every visitor uses either "titles" or "titles and descriptions" to search for auctions. If they search for "green ipod mini" and your title or description includes "green ipod mini," your search result will be displayed.
When most sellers create auctions, they concentrate on describing the item or converting visitors with powerful sales copy; however, what they don't do-- almost without exception--is add traffic-pulling keywords to their titles and pepper keywords throughout their descriptions.
In fact, some sellers neglect this to such a great extent that they misspell important keywords in their titles and description. This is the first type of seller we talked about. As a result, they attract no buyers-- with the possible exception of people who scour misspelled auctions to purchase underbid items that are unintentionally"hidden."
. . .so don't fool around when you create your auction title and description! You now know better.
This is the single most important determinant of the amount and quality of traffic you receive as a seller on Ebay. Use it, and you will immediately attract more interested buyers; ignore it, and you voluntarily give interested buyers to the seller who is already selling the same products as you for twice the price.

Probably just like you, I had an overwhelming desire to spend more time with my family and friends, doing the things that are important to me and living a comfortable lifestyle without financial worries ? and yes, less time working to pay for it!!! So with my quest to find financial freedom, I "googled" my way through searches looking for ideas on how I could fulfil this desire with minimum effort and expense. After all, I wanted to make money not spend it! I had aspirations of making wad loads of cash so my family & I could truly enjoy the pleasures of life - together. Now I've been involved with eBay for a number of years and enjoyed the success and extra incidental profits from selling our own surplus & bought items but never really considered that we could substantially make money on eBay alone. So when I stumbled across some websites claiming to be able to do just that, I was intrigued. This could very well be the best home business money making opportunity to have evolved in the past 50 years ... possibly ever! eBay is one of the fastest growing companies in history.

Greatly excited by what I had discovered, I began to see my enjoyment for eBay as no longer a hobby but an amazing opportunity to fulfil our dreams and accomplish them with something I actually love to do ? eBay!!! Ok, so I settled by what means I wanted to achieve success but how would I go from being an occasional seller to being a high profit powerseller making serious money on eBay? I needed more information but I really did not want to pay for it. You see, I was a "freebie seeker". I was prepared to scour the vastness of the internet to find the "secrets of success" without monetary expense. Ironically though, I ended up spending all that "precious time" I was trying to save, searching and implementing instead. Hundreds of others had quit their jobs and were making a killing with their own home based business and so I was driven to find out how they did it ? website after website after website, day after day after day ? before I knew it, I'd spent a couple of months day and night trying desperately to piece it all together. What was I thinking?! ? Wasn't the whole idea that I wanted to spend less time working and more time with my loved ones enjoying life!!! .. SO what happened? I lost the plot! Along the way I saw a number of quality informative websites offering all the "secrets" for a reasonable cost that I could access instantly but I fooled myself into thinking I could find out all this information easily and without spending a dime. I continued to muffle my way through copious amounts of information and found bits and pieces, tips and suggestions for making money on eBay I thought I could use, but for the record, I made many mistakes along the way which cost me even more precious time. So what have I learned? Well, actually I've learnt a great deal about how to make money on eBay but I've also gotten wiser!
