Our introduction to creating a niche store on Ebay will include the basics, which will be followed by a more in depth look at making money on Ebay..
When you consider”eBay” and “money” in the same phrase you perhaps think of being a eBay seller.
You place product listings in the eBay marketplace, buyers bid, you pay your eBay seller fees and what you have left is your profit margin.
There is, however, another way to create a business which still revolves around eBay but which doesn’t entail you selling a specific item in the eBay marketplace.
This “other way” opportunity is based on the eBay affiliate program and a great tool which makes entry into this opportunity not only likely but also super easy. This tool is called “Create A Niche Store “.
Now if you don’t know – an affiliate program permits you as an individual internet entrepreneur to promote the products of a company in exchange for a commission on all sales that you refer.
You are mostly working as an internet middleman and connecting internet browsers to particular products and companies through your own network of websites and marketing methods.
If we revisit to the eBay affiliate program, eBay actually invites you to promote all of the product listings in the eBay marketplace and in exchange for your efforts it will pay you up to 75% of the revenue they make from each transaction you refer plus up to $35 for each new active eBay member you refer.
What this means is that you can earn up to three quarters of eBay’s revenue plainly for connecting people to the products listed in the eBay marketplace.
Not only do you get to partner with the best branded marketplace in the world, you also get access to and monitor over ALL of the products listed in this marketplace. The eBay product inventory becomes YOUR product inventory and yet you do NOT have to keep inventory products, be involved with customers, manage shipping or handle refunds.
You are no longer regulated to selling only those products which you can buy and sell for a profit margin. You can select ANY niche market and promote those eBay products relevant to your selected niche outside of the eBay marketplace, directling targeted traffic through to eBay and into your own affiliate commissions.
Golf clubs, sewing kits, laptops, dog collars, diamond rings, Florida real estate…
If you know eBay you know how BIG it is – there are NO confines.
At this stage you might be wondering – well this sounds interesting but in reality is there any money in it? Well, here’s the bombshell – eBay’s top affiliates make over 1 million dollars a month. That’s right – 8 figures a year without stocking, selling or shipping a specific thing!
Now eBay does grant some necessary tools to help you thrive as an eBay affiliate and create an affiliate business BUT it has been the development of a tool outside of eBay that has really opened this up as a legitimate business opportunity.
The tool, as I mentioned previous, is called “Build A Niche Store ” and what it permits you to do is create eBay affiliate websites targeted to any eBay niche you want. These act as the avenue through which you direct targeted visitors to eBay.
Here are a pair of examples, one targeting Race Cars and the other Golf gear:
Race Car eBay Affiliate Website
Golf eBay Affiliate Website
As you can see, these are professional looking websites that includes all of those eBay products related to their target niche inside a searchable store front format, each of which automatically encloses your eBay affiliate id.
These stores then automatically revised as new products are listed for sale and old listing expire from the eBay marketplace and the software has built in development features which permit you to produce new store pages, add content to these pages, create content pages, alter your template etc etc.
In the space of about 10 minutes (once you are acquainted with how the software operates) you can produce a fully functional eBay affiliate website targeted to the niche market of your choosing.
Your store content is all search engine friendly which will allow the foundation for drawing targeted traffic from the search engines and you can then use the development features to draw more targeted visitors which will in time mean more eBay affiliate commissions.
It really is a brilliant model and I’ve been hearing great things about the guys behind the project and the member forum which you get time access to when you buy the product.
Create A Niche Store comes with a step by step manual which will walk even the most technically inexperienced through setting up their eBay affiliate website, 9 professional template layouts which can be customized (from inside your admin panel) to attain your target niche, lifetime member forum access, comprehensive product support and perhaps most importantly – an INFINITE domain license which means you can create as many of these niche websites as you want.
