Partner with ebay and make money without ever shipping anything
I am not a big user of ebay. I have bought and sold a few things but that is as far as it goes. And I have never partnered with ebay as an affiliate because I really didn't want to go through the portions of ebay life that included packaging, shipping, customer fulfillment and returns and all that.
I have been aware that ebay has a nice program where you can put real time java script sales boxes on your website but I never used them because ebay works with commission junction, which is a great company but requires a monthly fee. I took another look at the ebay program the other day and discovered they have a special deal with commission junction which doesn't cost anything. !! I don't know if this is new but I signed right up and I am now in the process of getting ebay banners, auctions and other stuff on my websites.
Let me tell you why I am doing this.
Every day I review my Amazon sales. This is very important because it keeps my finger on the pulse of my web visitors. It tells me what I am doing right, and what my customers want to buy. Now another thing about this is that I have seen time and time again how my web visitors have found great deals on Amazon. They really look for and find the bargains. Often times I will take note of this and write about it on my blog or on one of my websites. Letting people know about the great deal on a book, a sword, a game, a poster or what not.
This kind of awareness really helps a lot. And this is where the true power of ebay comes in. You can really find some great stuff and incredbily low prices on ebay.
Everybody Wins - the seller sells, the buyer (my web visitor) gets a great bargain, ebay makes their cut and I make my percentage - without ever having to store, stock, ship or fulfill anything - ebay cuts me a percentage. And it doesn't cost me anything.
It's a good setup and I recommend you join the program.
Here is an example of what you can display on your website:
It is an easy piece of java script that you pop right into your webpages. It works just like the amazon and google programs. And you have the ability to choose different formats, color schemes and sizes. You also (and most importantly) use keywords so you can focus on the products your web visitors would like to buy.
To sign up just go to ebay.com then click on the affiliate link at the bottom of the page. This will take you to commission junction where you will again have to sign up. Then you are on your way to offering another option and range of products and services to your web visitor.
