    ...can tell me what item I can list on Ebay that will get over 1,000 views in 5 days, but sells for under $1,000.

    In order to get the free $25 just send me a PM with a link to an Ebay auction that meets this requirement. If I see it has over 1,000 views and is selling for under $1,000 you get the $25. (note: cars and houses do not count, I must be able to list the item so if there is only 1 of the item existing in the world it doesn't count either)

    In fact, I'll paypal $25 to the first two PMs that qualify (must be two different items). The same person can win both $25 prizes.


    If you post the item in this thread you disqualify yourself as I'm paying for 'private knowledge'.

    I got 2 PMs and both items did have over 1,000 views... but I don't think I was fully clear. I've actually listed both items that were PM'd to me and never got 1,000 views for them before.

    If the item is a Widget, then most auctions for a Widget should be at 1,000 views... if there are 50 auctions for Widgets but only 1 of them have over 1,000 views this doesn't work for me as I can't simply list a Widget and get 1,000 views.

    Contest is closed. I have two winners that shall remain nameless so that all the cheapskates here don't PM them asking for free what I had to pay for.

    I'll trust the winners to keep their items to themselves.

    If you're still looking I know an item which consistently pulls a high number of views and lists for under $1000 in most cases shoot me a msg.

    Hmm. Is there not a tool that can monitor view counts on items so you can see which get the most views :S

    What am I missing here? Why would over 1K views, less than $1K be useful? Sorry if it's a n00b question - educate me!

    You could take the keywords and section and possibly get a lot of views on something, if you made the listing similar or the same.

    It's great market research for niche markets. Something getting over 1k = Demand.

    Under 1k, is more easy to sell than over 1k. I don't sell stuff on ebay but I'd use this for some affiliate marketing research :D

    I dont think you are getting why he would want that. This is probably not for "market research".
