Synopsis:

Tricks of the eBay Business Masters is a companion to Que's successful Tricks of the eBay Masters title, targeted specifically at those who run their own eBay businesses. This title takes a different approach from the prior book. Instead of presenting a large volume of short tricks, each attributed to a different eBay user, this book focuses on a small number of high-impact tricks, assembled by the author himself. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of running an eBay business --planning, inventory purchasing and management, sales management, packing and shipping, research and analysis, promotion, and others. Each chapter also contains ten vital and detailed tricks for improving that aspect of the business — thus increasing both sales and profitability. Profiles of a large and profitable eBay business are featured throughout. These twelve profiles detail the strategies that make these businesses successful; you will learn from the real-world experience and advice of successful sellers. This book is geared for sellers already running an eBay business, who want tips and inside advice on how to grow their eBay sales and profits. This book can be read in any order, and applied (or not applied) independent of each other. The 120 valuable and practical tricks will help any serious eBay businessperson be more successful. You can apply these tricks to your own businesses, to benefit directly from the proven advice provided.
