We are living in a fast paced environment. Meaning you look at the first page of results and move on. The average user probably doesn’t go to page 2 on Amazon, Google, and eBay. If you want to start a thriving business to sell online whether local or items to ship domestically/internationally you have to lose money to start.
Hear me out.
Just taking my experience from these platforms that anyone can use to get started. Whether you are using Facebook, eBay, Mercari, OfferUp, Amazon, or Walmart. Accept that low-ball offer, negotiate and reply to any and all messages. That’s the only way to enter into a tough market where everyone is selling the same thing as you. Most of the time you’ll lose money on every sale. I did for years, whether driving to meetups, offering free shipping, or just accept any offer.
List often. List quick. List everything. Accept all offers. This will help you in the long run because ratings matter, they move you up in the search results.
Ratings are worth more than money when you start.
