Setting eBay Goals

My eBay business is much more productive when I set goals. I know selling on eBay is very unpredictable and 1 week I can have a bunch of new consignment clients and 50 new thrift store finds. So for me it is hard to set goals far in advance, but I find that I get a lot more done when I set goals for the day or even for the upcoming week. One example is yesterday I participated in eBay Power Listing Day "PLD" Challenge on Virtual Online Learning. My goal was 15-20 new listings of old items that I had lying around. I beat my goal for the day and listed 21 items from scratch in about 3.5 hours.

If I didn't start my day with a goal in mind I might have listed a few items then jumped to something else then started researching new ways to make money on eBay. Too much wasted time and by the end of the day I would of felt like I didn't accomplished much. So for 2011 try and set at least 1 goallllllll for each day and challenge yourself to meet that goal.

Here are a few listings from my fellow Virtual Online Members who participated in the PLD Challenge. As you can see by their feedback rating they take eBay seriously. So check out the listings below if not to bid at least to see how sucessful eBay sellers list.

Good Luck,

Happy New Year!!!

I'm back and looking forward to making 2011 the best eBay year ever. For my loyal followers I apologize for the lack of posts over the last few months of 2010. My wife and I just moved into our first home in October in a completely new area and I have pretty much been a Full-Time Stay at Home Dad while we have been settling in. Between taking care of our 7 month old boy all day and working on the house and my eBay Consignment Business www.ASAPsellsIT.com I have had little time left to thrift and write about my Thrift Store Finds. And I honestly did not want to post a bunch of junk or affiliate links just to have some content on my blog. So hopefully I still have some people checking in once in a while because I am going to try and get up a minimum 3 new posts a week in the new year.

A good way to start off the new year is by checking out one of my older posts from September 2010 about my Top 10 Thrift Store Tips. I needed to go over these again myself since I have not stepped foot in a Thrift Store for quite a while now. I really miss it, the thrill of finding something that you know will bring in a nice profit is a great feeling.

Good Luck,

John Paul
