Things That Flew Out the Door: June 2013

In my quest to get my store inventory up to 900 items, this month, only 10 items that I listed during June sold the same month.

Partially that’s because I’m already working on listing coats, sweaters and other winter items to get ready for the season change and that’s not what customers are buying this month.

Here’s June’s list:

*Shoreshapers swimming suit

*Croft & Barrow sun dress

*Izod school uniform skirt

*Merona white top

*Crest toothpaste

*31 Purse (x2)

*American Girl dress

*Soybu Tank top

*SAS Sandals

This Week on eBay

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated you on my selling week.  Things have been a little crazy around here, which is one of the best parts of being self-employed: You can work your job around your life.  I live the flexibility of it all.

I’ve been listing for myself and a couple of consignors lately on top having life throw us a few surprises.  I’m also focusing on living and enjoying life with my family rather than being tied to my computer.

I’ve been trying new recipes, sewing, going to the beach, spending long weekends with family and friends and going on a few road trips.

I’m still trying to work toward 900 listings.  Right now, I’m stuck at about 830.  I’ve been trying to list a minimum of 5 items a day.  Some days are more, some are less, but it’s Summer so it’s difficult for me to be focused on my listings.

I’ve been sending some eBay items to auction to see how they’ll do.  Especially items that I have multiple quantities of.

I’m also happy with the fact that I feel like my Amazon sales are picking up.  They’re no where like my eBay sales, but I’m happy to make a few hundred dollars extra a month.

Bonanza has been an interesting venue for me this summer.  I had four (4) items sell there in the month of June.  I don’t have a ton of time to promote my Bonanza items, so I’m happy with any sale that I get there.  I consider them to be “bonus” sales.

Online Selling Tip of the Week

Build up your followers on Twitter and start using eBay’s app to automatically tweet your listings for you:

Froo! Smart Social is the name of it.

It will automatically tweet your listings for you or post them to Facebook, or both.  You set up the rules for tweets.  I have mine set to tweet all new listings, one listing per hour.
