Many of our clients are eBay sellers, looking to expand their online businesses.
While a lot of them successfully turn to Amazon and other online outlets, they all seem to run into the same problem – they hit a glass ceiling, when it comes to their monthly sales.
Let me explain…
The average, experienced eBay seller will generate anything from £10,00 to £50,000 per month in sales from their eBay and Amazon accounts.
While this figure may seem high to the uninitiated, experienced sellers, know two things:
1. They have no way of expanding through eBay and
2. There is a lot more sales to be had…
In short, they know there are a lot more buyers out there on the internet, but they are not sure how to reach them.
This is troublesome for our eBay sellers, because they know they are leaving money on the table, but they’re not quite sure what to do about it.
Naturally, eBay sellers want a piece of the action when it comes to the vast commercial opportunities which exist outside eBay, but many have fallen short.
The truth is that, if you are dependant on outfits like eBay and Amazon for all of your sales revenue, then you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
While eBay and Amazon are giants in terms of online sales, they represent a much smaller piece of the pie when it comes to overall sales online.
What does this mean for you as an eBay seller?
If you are serious about increasing your online sales, you really need to equip your business with its own eCommerce website.
Having your own eCommerce website allows you to attract all the traffic that exists outside of eBay and Amazon. What’s more, with a well configured website, your products will be automatically picked up by the true giants: Google, Yahoo & Bing.
The fact is, having your products listed on eBay and Amazon will keep your business ticking along nicely, but getting listed on Google, Bing and Yahoo, can turn your business into a multi-million pound enterprise in as little as 6 months.
