Your Virtual Assistant Can Help With Your eBay Sales or Store!

I was an eBay power seller until I moved from my little country town of Steelville, MO to Ellisville in St. Louis County in November of 2011.

I packed my most precious valuables and the things I absolutely had to have and downsized from a big, old 5 bedroom house to a sweet but small 2 bedroom apartment.

The movies and books and memorabilia from my retired store which were the things I was selling so well on eBay got left “for later”. Sadly, in June of 2012, my old house was burned to the ground by arson and I had never gotten around to making the trip to get these items.

For 2 years prior to moving, I had been listing and selling the great content I took home with me from retiring my brick and mortar store. I had an eBay store with over 2,000 items at one time. As I reduced my stock I eventually closed the eBay store to save the fee because you can literally list thousands of items on eBay without having to have “a store”.

It is more work to sell on eBay and get and retain power seller status than you might think. It literally took hours to list each item, find the image or images I wanted and to write descriptions to help them appeal and sell. Yes, there are ready-made templates on eBay IF the item is listed already, but I wanted mine to be more original and stand out from the crowd, and though a rare occurrence, there ARE mistakes in those cookie cutter descriptions and if you are not careful, you will have a misleading listing and this can cost you time, reputation and also money if you have to give a refund because the item was not what you stated it was.

Gotta toot my own horn a bit here, I have 100% positive feedback I have maintained for over 6 years on Jan’s eBay page. This is 1663 perfect transactions – both as a seller and a buyer :-)

Anyway, enough rambling! I can take your list of items along with pictures that you supply or those I can research and find and not only set you up in your own eBay store or listings but can maintain it all for you. If it is something as easy as movies or books, I can even use wikopedia or google and get informative descriptions to add to that area for you and make your offers stand out from the others.

Or I can just simply list your items and use the standard images that are on eBay for that purpose. This is a time consuming task that may be keeping your from selling on eBay yourself and being able to outsource the things you do not want to do or do not have time to do can make all the difference in moving forward to getting rid of things you no longer want or need and getting some income from it.

If this sounds like something you would like to check into more, just drop me a line at jantallent at and we can chat about the possibilities.

The Market

Every online business needs a marketing plan . The plan is designed to get the products or services in front of the millions of people surfing the Web each day. Unless people know about the product and its advantages, they will buy from someone else. Implementing a marketing plan takes time and effort that many business owners just don’t have with all of the other jobs on their plates.

With the help of an expert Internet marketer, that process gets a whole lot easier.
