Book Review: Selling Beyond eBay

Selling Beyond eBay: Foolproof Ways to Reach More Customers and Make Big Money on Rival Online Marketplaces

eBay is still the world’s most popular auction site, but it’s not the only one. Selling Beyond eBay offers potent strategies for targeting not just more buyers, but the right buyers.

By getting the benefits from specialty sites (niche sites), other auction sites, and online storefronts, sellers can increase their profits significantly.

In this book the readers will find:

* Descriptions and reviews of hot auction sites and marketplaces like uBid, iOffer, Yahoo! Auctions, Overstock Auctions, Bidville, Bid4Assets, ebid.tv, and Amazon

* Profiles of successful sellers using these sites in addition to (or instead of) eBay

* Step-by-step instructions for creating and managing online storefronts

* Options for combining online storefront sales with eBay auction sales

* Details on how to expand sourcing options in order to sell more merchandise

With author Greg Holden having written seven other books on this subject, he is no stranger to eBay. Holden writes that in terms of growth, eBay is not the shooting star it once was. It has become more and more competitive as it gets more crowded than it used to be, so Power Sellers are finding new places to sell online.

eBay is still the most popular auction site, but it’s not the only one. Sellers are complaining of the ever-increasing fees, the increasing number of competitors, and the power that eBay holds over their members and the whole system.

So if you’re looking for more sites to sell online, (and let’s face it, you can never have too many sales channels in this economy), it’s time to start Selling Beyond eBay.

Doing so is an easy way to make a few dollars or more. The set up is quick and easy and this book will help you get started with its invaluable insider advice, hints and tips.
