Are You Relying On Chance To Provide You With Items To Sell On eBay?

Are you ready to learn some simple ways to generate a constant stream of used products you can sell on eBay?

If you are like most people you began your eBay business by selling unwanted items from around your home. After you ran out of items to sell, you were hooked on the profit potential of eBay so you started shopping at garage sales and thrift stores looking for items you could profitably sell on eBay.

Good for you. EBay is a fantastic opportunity for home based businesses and selling used items can be rewarding and fun. If you are a collector, eBay allows you to buy and sell items with minimal effort.

But, there is a problem. . .

While garage sales are a fun way to find items to resell on eBay, the results are not consistent enough. I am sure you have heard stories of wildcatters drilling for oil and giving up inches from the big gusher. Stories of prospectors walking away from their claim inches from the gold.

Garage sales are like that. The next one might have something good. So you keep going. Sometimes you find nothing, other times you get lucky. When you get lucky it's enough to keep you spending your time and gas money driving around looking for the next find.

But, if you go long enough without finding something good, you will get burnt out and start looking for some other way to find products. You risk walking away a few inches from the gold.

This burn out is where 90 percent of eBay sellers fail. They give up. Actually they give up to soon, and walk away from the fantastic opportunity provided by eBay.

You Don't Have to Suffer From Garage Sale Burn Out

You see, there are lots of fine antiques and collectibles in garages, attics, closets, and crawl spaces waiting for you. The problem is you are waiting for someone else to start the process.

By relying on garage sales, you are leaving it all up to chance. The chance that someone might decide to have a garage sale. The chance they will pull out items that interest you. The chance you will attend the right sales, or even feel like getting up in the morning. The chance you will get there before someone else buys the desirable items.

There Is A Better Way To Find And Buy Antiques And Collectibles

Let me introduce myself here. . . My name is Terry Gibbs. I buy and sell collectible toys and trains for a living. My father and I first became organized collector/dealers almost 30 years ago. We would buy everything we could find and keep only the best for our collection. When my father and I started building our train collection years ago, we went out and bought trains, then kept what we wanted and sold the rest.

Over the years, we perfected ways to get people to dig out their unwanted trains and sell them to us. Sure we go to garage sales because it is fun, and you never know what you will find, but over time, garage sales became a very small part of the system.

We learned how to systematically get people to sell us toy trains.

Now, like my father and I, you can move past the hit or miss of shopping for antiques and collectibles at garage sales, and start using a system to locate valuable antiques and collectibles you can resell on eBay.

As a special introduction to my systematic approach to making my phone ring with anxious sellers I have been teaching collectors and dealers since 1991, you can learn twelve of the simplest, most inexpensive - or even free! - strategies I have learned over the past three decades in a single easy to read report.

Don't make the mistake of thinking because these are simple inexpensive ways to find antiques and collectibles that they are not powerful. I have specifically selected 12 powerful cheap and easy strategies so you can start finding and buying items without spending money on marketing.

At this point in time it is important for you to learn the basic skills you need to successfully buy from the public. Later, after you have built up your negotiating skills, you can move up to expensive strategies covered in my larger package.

In "Twelve Simple Ways To Find And Buy Antiques and Collectibles" you will learn:

  • Why new collectors blindly find items, and how you can use this every day.
  • How to get reporters to write articles about you and your collection. This is not only fun, but generates lots of calls from people offering you antiques and collectibles.
  • A powerful way to improve your negotiating skills. It won't do you any good to get someone to offer you collectibles if you can't talk them into parting with them at a suitable price.
  • How to correctly use business cards. Most collectors use business cards wrong, and lose out on items they could have purchased.
  • A simple and dirt cheap way to get people to offer you more items when you are in their homes. Using this strategy, I have had people dig toys out of their closets, attics, and garages and beg me to buy them.
  • The biggest mistake most collectors and dealers make and how to avoid it. This simple error causes many collectors to ignore productive ways to find trains. Once you understand this basic concept, you won't make this mistake again.
  • And six more easy to implement, easy to learn, and mostly free strategies to help you locate and buy antiques and collectibles right out of people homes.

I said these are easy to learn. With most of them you will have to do nothing but read them. After reading a few simple paragraphs of explanation you will understand immediately.

In "Twelve Simple Ways To Find And Buy Antiques and Collectibles" you will learn how to get people in grocery stores, the post office, and other places you visit during the normal course of your day to offer you items.

Sure it's simple, but be honest here. How many times has someone standing in line near you at the post office or grocery store invited you into her home to buy items? This happens to me all the time.

Here's an example, two weeks ago a retired gentleman standing in line behind me at Home Depot told me about his trains and I followed him to his house an bought them. Do you make this happen? After reading the report, you will be able to make this happen.

Now let me be clear here. This is important. These twelve ways to find and buy antiques and collectibles will work for almost any type of collectible, but specializing is important.

If you are just looking for anything, this report will help you improve your negotiating skills, but you will only get the full value out of this report if you specialize in a specific type of antique or collectible.

Running around buying anything that doesn't eat and seems cheap enough to make a profit on is not a productive strategy anyway. If you are looking to make money buying items to sell on eBay, specialization is a key part of your success. If you don't specialize do eBay consignment sales until you find something you like.

Here's Some Good News.

You can get all twelve of these strategies for less than the cost of a tank of gas. Even better at 1.67 each they are cheaper than a gallon of gas.

You'll learn all twelve of these simple strategies for a small investment of only $19.97. The first purchase you make using these strategies will more than cover the cost of this special report.

But wait, it gets even better. . .

You won't risk a penny either. Because I will back you with a. . .
