Hi! So I help my wife run a stale homecleaning business and one of our well to do clients advised I look into ebay for a good starter business and threw me some books. 2 days later and I'm here. Initially I just wanted to try selling amazon deals on ebay at a general price and see what happened, now I'm interested in wholesaler finding techniques and anything to do with marketing. After browsing a large marketing forum, I found that EVERYONE is a manipulative marketing machine, even the BS callers. I noticed there would be nice guys posting threads claiming they reached their first great $ a day milestone and how with hard work and dedication you can do it too, no sales pitch, no suggestions...Then 1 or 2 people would chime in saying "GOOD JOB! I'm glad you made it, I can totally relate, just a year ago I was in your position! $1000 a day is just the beginning dude!" with a relative AD to their business in their signature. I thought to myself...WOW I never would have imagined my mind would be so well geared for a conniving business like this. Not only is it easy to sift through all this BS I see people gobbling up, I know I can at the very least make a lot of use out of these type of forum environments (or those, I haven't got a feel for this place yet). I've only read 1 thread here...a guy asking about how to deal with his 1000 friend requests without getting banned. That sent my mind racing and now I'm here looking for any tips or advice you can throw at me, BS or not. Given that I'm broke, where would you suggest I start digging next? Are ebay marketing books and the like all scams? Where will I find the most reliable information? I need more. (and/or a job if you like me well enough) Thanks for hearing me out. Glad to be here!
