A Beginners Guide to Selling Books Online

Posted on by admin in Selling Books Online Leave a comment

Selling books online is slightly different from selling random things online. It requires knowledge and delicacy. I say slightly different but equally easy. If you are considering an online book selling business then let me congratulate you on your choice.

You’d be surprised to know that how many people are buying all kinds of books online. Just keep these guidelines in mind when starting online book selling.

Apply your knowledge of books to your business

When I said in the beginning that book selling is somewhat different from random online selling I meant this. Love and passion for the books is essential. If you read books only then you would think like a buyer or a book lover. If you are a book lover, you are almost sure to find people like you anywhere you go. Imagine how much competitive edge this would give you over sellers who don’t like books.

Use your love and knowledge of the books to good outcome of your business. Books are special to anyone who like books, treat your business accordingly.

Build a stock

Go to yard sales, book fairs, old book shops, regular book shops – and work out a regular supplying source for your selling. You can find a supplier as well. This is very important as you don’t want the book selling interrupted. It is a business for you and it should flow, only then you will get regular profits.

Consult from other book lovers

Build a community of book lovers, both on and offline. You will learn a lot from them. You will learn about different types of books, new writers, literature, trends etc. If you engage any of them in your business you can split tasks with them for better business management.

Locate a good website

Many people rush to this step. Creating a profile or registering with a good website is not enough. You have to find a suitable website which complies with all your requirements. A site specializing in book selling would be ideal. It would take a small amount of time, little research and you will have the best options in front of you. Amazon.com

Buy books in good condition

When it comes to books, their condition matters a lot. Worn out, torn, shabby and poor quality books won’t attract buyers. Make sure that the books you buy and sell are in good conditions. If needed take essential steps to ensure their condition improves.

Sell books on reasonable price – not too high and not too low

The prices of books should be reasonable. Keep your eye open to what the average price is. A book which high rates won’t sell and the one with low price tag won’t bring you profits. Both conditions are utterly useless for you.

Finding Items that Sell Online

Posted on by admin in Finding Items, Selling Online Leave a comment

When opening an online selling business, it is only logical to first find the things that will definitely sell online and bring you profits as well. There is no point in waiting for months for an item you posted, to sell. Online selling is easy, and it is true that more or less anything can be sold online. But if you seek business out of online selling, you should start with items that are sold readily instead of wasting your time on non-selling items.

Finding an item that would sell online is not merely a formality. It is crucially important for your business. Look at it this way, a person who randomly posts item to sell online will gradually get to know what items sell. Then he would retract his posts and re-post the items that would sell. After this process he’d know what the online market is and how it works. If you conduct a research posting items, imagine the head start you have over that guy?

Finding and Selecting the Items

There is a simple process to it. The process is straightforward but many make the mistake of ignoring it and paying the price. Here is what you need to do in order to find hot items:

Conduct online researches about items that are “in”

You can start by visiting famous websites like Ebay.com. Ebay have a section titled “What’s Hot”. Just a quick look will give you a general idea about hot selling items. But don’t stop there, browse different websites. Observe what items are being sold for what prices and also for what reasons. In little time you will have a feasibility report of your own. You’ll know where to start from. This would give you edge over other sellers.

Find a good supplier

When you are done with choosing the product(s) you wish to sell, the next step is to find a wholesaler or a supplier. The advantage of buying from a wholesaler is that they give you items on a discounted price. This makes you a decent profit through online selling.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be a formal supplier; you can pick up stuff from garage sales, flea markets etc.  As long as you are getting good products for good price, nothing else matters.

Start selling

Get registered with an online website with decent reputation and start selling. Websites will charge you a small percentage on your sales and in return they will give you a client base that is in millions. Identifying the right website e.g. Amazon.com for books, Ebay.com for random items and Etsy.com for hand stitched clothes is also important. There are many websites which specialize in particular things, you just have to discover the most suitable one for you.


Some Creative Ways for Free Online Selling

Posted on by admin in Free Online Selling 1 Comment

Online selling these days in attracting many people, so naturally more and more people are getting interested in selling stuff online. Many people are actually giving up on their conventional selling and retailing business and are switching to online selling. It is a good thing in all regards but one: the online selling is getting fiercely competitive with each coming day. Only those who practice effective online selling survive. Having said that let me also tell you that effective selling is not difficult at all.

Here are some creative ways to sell stuff online:

Selling through fixed priced sites

This is the most common type of selling. Millions of people are registered with selling sites like Ebay and Amazon – sites who prefer fixed price selling over auction. Selling through these sites open you to a client base that is global and willing to buy.

Selling through auction

Auction selling is more suitable for antiques and valuables. If you wish to deal in pricy stuff, it is recommended that you sell through auction sites. Selling regular day to day stuff through auction won’t get you anywhere. Believe me many people make this mistake. Be sure to find a site that is suitable for your products.

Selling through handmade crafts sites

It would amaze you, as it amazed me to find out that how many people are looking to buy handmade products these days. People are actually preferring handmade over readymade! That is the reason sites like Etsy – which are dedicated to handmade things, has risen in no time. There are many sites like Etsy in operation. If you are dealing in handmade items these are the websites for you.

Online Ads sites

Another simple yet extremely fruitful way of generating online sales is online ads. There is a website called Craigslist which operates in more than 500 cities in the world as an online ad site. More that 35 million people browse Craigslist monthly. Yes, you get a compelling feeling to post your sale ad on this website, and it would be a wise decision.

Everybody has electronics these days. There is nobody on earth who doesn’t fancy having a good DVD player or LCD. The thing with the technology is that it keeps changing all the time. When we have a thing after a while we get bored by it and want a newer one.

However some people cannot afford to buy first hand and brand new things, they can only buy used things. In fact that is the case with most of the people. Even you and me sometimes, we also look for decent things to buy online for reduced rates.

The advantage of selling electronics online is that the platform is big. It consists millions of people. Every part of the world is included and accessible. The other big advantage is that it is easy to sell things online.

Select and clean the electronics you wish to sale

It is a very crucial step. Pick out the latest, trendy and “in” items. Clean them polish them and bring them in tip-top condition. Selecting the items that old, out of style and not in good condition will only waste your time. They will eventually get sold for a small price but they will take a lot of time. The circle of your online selling will effect. If you have a supplier then make sure you closely observe the stock. Anything which you have doubt about, don’t put it online for sale in the beginning. After your selling process has started, you can occasionally drop in a low price items in between and get it sold.

Sort out the price, pictures, description and label

This step can be called “sales pitch”. Attraction and interest of buyers will depend upon how you price the product, what good pictures you have of it and how have you labeled it so the buyer will buy only from you and nobody else. To make use of this effectively, conduct a research on prices and price your product accordingly. Next, upload good pictures when you post the ad and explain the specifications in detail.

Find specific websites who specialize in particular electronics

Finding specialized websites for electronics can give you a lot of advantages. One of which is that the people who browse such websites are definitely interested in buying electronics. Their time is not wasted by distraction of other products. A platform specially built for electronic selling is an ideal one for you. like Alibaba.com

Get related people involved

If you are going to do it regularly, you cannot do it alone. You will need a supplier at least. Ideally you should team up with other intellects that are into online electronic selling. This would help you a great deal as you will learn a lot from them. You can split your work with them. You can specialize like e.g. one person is responsible for marketing, other is for posting ads, one is responsible for co-coordinating sales process etc.

Posted on by admin in Selling Books Online Leave a comment

If you are a book lover you must have thought about it countless times: how do I make use of all the knowledge about books I have and convert it into money. If that is not the case with you, it certainly was the case with me.

Selling books and making profit out of it isn’t very difficult. However, the bigger the magnitude of your business the more looking after it will require.

Here are some points to remember if you are thinking of starting an online selling books business.

Find a book selling websites

There are hundreds if not thousands of websites operating in the market today. Online selling is at its peak. In the midst of that it is very crucial to your business, especially on initial stages that you find a good and product book selling website. Different websites have their different way of working; find the one which is most suitable for you. It would take an hour or two to get well informed about multiple websites; you can pick out some of the best of them and get registered with them.

Find a good supply source

By supplier I don’t necessarily mean a person who supplies book. It can be any source which regularly provides you with books. Since you are going to make a living out of book selling, it is important that the flow of book selling remains active.

Pay extra attention to this step, as it can be difficult to build a good stock with books. It is easier with clothes, books and electronics etc. But as a book lover you would know how hard it is to find good books.

Involve other book lovers

This is a further enhancement of the above mentioned step. Getting book enthusiast involved in your company will teach you a lot. Firstly you knowledge will increase, secondly you will find more sources to get books from. If you take it one step further, you can distribute tasks and manage your business more effectively.

Quality and condition of the books

Make sure that the books you buy are in good condition. Worn out books will make you and your business look bad. People love books and prefer to buy ones that are in good condition. If necessary, you can go through the process of cleaning and binding the books to make them look better.

Pricing

Prices of the books you are selling shouldn’t be too high or even too low. The prices should be reasonable. By reasonable I mean such that a buyer would feel comfortable spending and you will get decent money out of it. That would create a win-win situation.


How to Setup An Online Business Profitably?

Posted on by admin in Online Business Leave a comment

Online buying and selling has become a common practice these days. If you wish to start an online business, you don’t have to worry about its scope, productivity and profitability. What you need to worry about is that thousands of other people with the same idea as you and how you can compete with them!

Thousands if not millions of people are shopping online and the list is growing. There is no limit to online selling, you can sell stuff anywhere to anyone. These incentives are quite big for anyone to consider, and that is what people these days are doing. They are selling different things online and making a living out of it. And despite the fact that online selling is very easy it requires effort to produce good results. If you want to be “just another” seller, you can start by posting ads. But if you want to get big in online selling, you have to take care of some things, such as:

Utilizing Auction Sites

This is the primary step. Get yourself enrolled with one of the reputable websites which complies with the stuff you wish to sell. For example, Ebay.com is good for all sorts of items, Amazon.com is good for wholesale items, Etsy.com is good for selling handmade clothes etc. Spending some time and research these sites to see which best fits you.

Ebay, Etsy and Amazon don’t charge unless your item sales; the fees involved can be minimal or a big chunk of your profits so make sure you factor this into your auctions.

Setup an “online store” through different websites

When you get familiar with selling products online, a step forward would be to setup your own online store. Many websites like Yahoo shopping, Ebay, and Amazon.com etc offer this service in return to a fee. By paying that fee you open your business to the customer base of these websites.

Start your own website

You should start you own website if you want to get big in the industry. The website understandably would be small in the beginning; perhaps you can start with a blog. If you work hard on your website it will grow. Not only can you sell more, you would have an advantage over people who just stick to auction sites, no fees! The only thing you’re looking at is hosting and domain name costs, but these are minimal in comparison.

Learn SEO optimization techniques

To bring traffic to your website, you need to learn and apply SEO techniques. You can alternatively hire an expert for the job as well. Just make sure that your website is well designed, easy to use. The more professional a website looks the more your visitors will trust you and become customers!

Publicize your website

Use social networking, link directories, advertising (online and offline) for the promotion of your website. Tell your friends and family about it. Take action and get the word out!

Think like a buyer and be earnest

The golden rule for being successful as seller is to think like a buyer. Prioritize his priorities, put yourself in his place and design your business around his needs! Ask yourself when visiting your auctions or your own website, would I trust this website upon first seeing it? Would I take out my credit card and buy something? If you don’t get a “Yes” then figure out what you’re missing and make changes. Check out the competition and see what they’re doing to be number one!

Good luck!
