    I mean all we do buy low sell product. After you identify your target demographic, get the product sourced, expenses calculated etc. It's easy money am I right? Unless you get banned by eBay? I'm trying to bridge over to CPA and it appears to be so complicated with all the terminology that's and making sure you're on the top of Google, making your presence known on RSS feeds etc. Could be just me, but when done right eBay is just too easy. Unless you get BANNED!

    If it's so easy for you, share with me the necessary info (target demographic, product sources, expenses, etc) and I'll boost your rep into the positives!

    Of course BHW rep shouldn't be all that important to you, so I wouldn't actually use that as a motivator.

    But it would be very helpful for you to share the methodology you use to attain all of your resources and find a profitable eBay niche.

    I'm sure many would exchange knowledge of SEO, CPA, or whatever other skill you desire in exchange. Myself included.

    Long story.... That I'd rather not discuss. Now I have to start all over and build from the ground up.

    Sure I'll help. First, you should read the newspaper, watch TV, youtube etc to figure out what people are interested in. For instance, I've been reading a lot about x, So I might establish y as my niche product. Next, you have to analyze the variables. How much would it cost to source product y? How much of product y would you be able to afford with the funds available? What is the going price on the market for your type of product? Then find a wholesaler that sells the product you want. Haggle to your advantage and make sure the price per unit for the items are lower than retail. Enough to make a decent profit. Enough to make sure the expenditure is worth your time. Calculate your average shipping cost, the price of materials, selling fees etc. Then finally purchase the product at wholesale.

    The next phase of your expenditure should be all about advertising. If you're selling on eBay, make sure you provide excellent details about the product. Make it look colorful and neat. Indicate that you're a local seller. Any advantage you have, use it! Make your listing look better than all the rest. Selling on Amazon is a little bit different. Often times you'ill find people selling under other sellers listings. If the listing is at the top of the page, and the product, generic and not copyrighted by the seller. Don't even bother creating your own advertisement. Use theirs and undercut their price! If this is not the case then create your own. Buy a UPC code (required by Amazon), brand your product and drive traffic to your listing. Something that I'm not very good at the moment.

    The last phase of your expenditure is all about customer relations. No matter how rude the customer is, always act friendly because Amazon and eBay are watching. This is often the most complicated phase, because well people are complicated. Just make sure they're satisfied, even at your own expense if necessary (protect your feedback) and you should be alright.

    That's the brief summary of what I do!

    Thanks for the tutorial

    Here's a method for Clickbank

    Watch tv listen to the radio, look on forums
    Find out what diseases they are talking about at the moment

    Go to clickbank and find a prosduct that corrects the problem

    Buy an exact match domain, if possible. or something with the sisease name in it
    Write some reviews on the product
    If your no good at writing
    outsource it here.,
    put about 5 articles on your site, using the most commonly searched keywords
    example
    disease treatement
    disease cure
    natural disease treatment
    cure disease
    best treat for disease

    Now you have options to get traffic

    1 SEO, and rank your website, ( This is not so easy as it seems)
    2 PPC. Grab some adwords coupons and set up campaigns
    3 Grab some Facebook coupons

    Finally sit back and watch the money roll in

    Thanks for the info.
    I have a pretty good understanding of eBay and Amazon selling, though you reinforced that and provided some new pieces of info.

    My biggest problem is finding a profitable niche and sourcing it at an affordable price at a decent quality.

    Obviously that seems to be somewhat of a strong suit of yours - so kudos for that! I'll have to do more looking into things like news papers and whatnot, as per your suggestion.

    Of course if you'd like to give any more info (or even specific suggestions of niches, heh) on that topic I'd be more than grateful.

    And kudos to nanavlad for the good share as well!
