How to leverage eBay to make thousands of dollars more…


  • Share on Tumblr

If you walk into any internet marketing conference or read any book about internet marketing, the words “there is big money is in your database” are drummed into us, and for good reason.

In the early days I never quite got it, and then one day I came home after attending yet another internet seminar and decided I would bite the bullet and give it a try.

At the time I had an email database of around 500 customers who had purchased previously.  I quickly whipped up an email about a new item (took approx 10 mins) then loaded it into the email program and went to bed.  To my amazement, in the morning there were 37 new orders giving an extra profit of over $2,000! Not bad for 10 minutes work…

From then on I was sold on email marketing.

Over the years we have refined this a lot by testing the best times to send emails however the concept is exactly the same.
Today we set schedules for these emails to go out, so while you are at the beach or your favourite restaurant, your bank account can grow by often thousands of dollars.

I would love to hear of your experiences with this concept…

    Hi Neil,
    What do you do when you don’t have your own list but you have a product i.e. a book or a course and you would like to promote it through other peoples list? Is it possible to do Joint Venture with ebay merchants who have large lists? I am wondering if you have any experience doing JV with ebay merchants.
    Regards,
    Dusty

  3. How exactly do you send an email for this?
    How do I list my eBay customers (how do I find them – that is the 2000 eBay customers)?
    Is there an email program I can use for my 3500 web site customers.
    Any helpful comments would be useful.

    • Hi Trevor,
      What sort of models do you do?

      In regards to listing 2000 customers, we use Constant Contact however Mail Chimp is also popular.

      If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Cheers,

      Neil

    Warning! be very careful when buy from suppliers selling brand name products.
    Just got slapped from Ebay for selling a counterfeit product.
    Problem is you have no idea if it is or isn’t counterfeit.
    No name is the safe way to go.

  5. Hi Neil,
    Regarding Trevor’s comment about how to find your eBay customers. Do programmes like Mail Chimp and Constant Contact actually find your previous customer details for you? Or does it only start to collect their data when you join up? I tried to start up a mail shot programme with aWeber and found it quite difficult without a website and just an eBay featured shop. I gave up eventually as it was taking up too much time. and although customer services were quick to answer queries they were not detailed enough for me to make any real progress. No sitting on the beach for me I’m afraid ! Well not yet.

    Neil,
    We have been collecting the information from eBay sales for a few years now – but never used it. Are you emailing customers using the addresses supplied via the eBay purchase details? If so, would you still use addresses that were from two / three years ago? Is the ‘offer’ you send them closely related to their original purchase, or can it be unrelated?
