Have you ever been struggling to find a product to sell on eBay? Have you spent countless hours on the Net, just to find that one, perfect money maker? I'm sure you have! At least, if you're seriously interested in making money on eBay.
There are 2 types of eBay sellers (or the ones who would like to become):
People spending months, even years to find that one golden niche, that one perfect product, that one perfect supplier. 99% of them have never sold anything on eBay and they'll probably continue wasting their time…
The second category – action takers. They do not try to make it perfect, instead they just take action. They just start selling and learn from their own mistakes. They test different strategies based on their own experience. They build their business gradually, step by step with hard work until rewards are showing up!
Well, I hope you're not the Type 1 person I described above! But even if you are, don't worry, not everything is lost! You can still get back on the track and start making some money on eBay! It's never too late!
The best part is – I'll show you how to do it right now! No gimmicks, no tricks or over-hyped sales stuff! I truly believe in giving the best I can to my subscribers. At the end of the day – you trusted me by giving me a chance to prove you that it's still possible to make a decent profit from selling on eBay!
And I want to pay you back!
Before we move on…
Do you remember how eBay started out? What was the main target market? Yep, it was meant to be an online marketplace for old junk – collectables, stamps etc.
Only later on eBay expanded and took on board everything else.
One of the most popular categories from those early years still is DVD movies. Over the last 10 years hundreds of millions of DVDs have been sold on eBay. And for a reason, many eBay newcomers still want to start selling DVDs.
Home DVD market alone is worth more than 12 billion £££ every single year worldwide!
The only problem – it's too late…
Let’s face it – eBay's DVD market is OVERLOADED! There are simply too many sellers! They try to beat each other on pricing so much that most of them end up with a 1 pound NET profit per DVD or even less! Let alone all the bootlegs & copies distorting the market.
Blu Ray Arrival!
Until early 2008, two giants fought for their share of the next generation format – Toshiba HD and Sony Blu Ray.
In February 2008 Toshiba announced that they quit this war in favor of Sony with their Blu Ray format. This was a beginning of something really, really huge! Experts predict that within next 5-10 years Blu Ray will become a new standard and will replace DVDs in most Western countries.
Sure, a big part of Blu Ray's success was played by Play Station 3, from the day one supporting Blu Ray standard. Fast forward to year 2013 – now you can get a standalone Blu Ray player for less than 60 quid. Not talking about 3D trend that over takes World currently (only Blu Ray discs can offer 3D functionality).
Why I'm telling you all this? Because this is a perfect time to get on board and make a lot of money by selling Blu Ray movies! You're in this great position to be in this market from the very beginning, build your business and long term customer base.
Take a look at these numbers taken from eBay.co.uk
Last 30 days (DVDs)
Total Listings: 867,831 (yes, almost 1 million on UK site alone)
Items sold: 336,006
Sell through rate (based on listings): 17%
Total Sales: £3,459,824
Last 30 days (Blu Rays) Total Listings: 83,059
Items sold: 46 462
Sell through rate (based on listings): 56%
Total Sales: £511,286
As you can see from the numbers, there are several interesting things here:
DVDs are still VERY popular (and will be for few more years) but sell through rate isn’t that great at all (to say least) – 17% means that only one out of every six listed DVDs gets sold.
Blu Rays – numbers are much smaller, but sell through rate stands at a very attractive 56% meaning every second Blu Ray movie listed gets sold! Which is a very good rate taking into consideration all those un-professional listings, high priced items and poor descriptions.
What's more interesting though is how much money those sellers make per item? As I said previously, profit margins on DVDs are very low. You'll be very lucky if you make £2 per new release. Most sellers make only half of that.
With Blu Rays, it's a little bit different. Take a look at these numbers:
As you can clearly see you can easily make £3 – £5+ NET profit on every unit or approximately 30%-50% in terms of ROI. How's that sound? Is it a good profit margin to have on eBay? Sure it is! It's a phenomenal eBay market and you can become a part of it if only you TAKE ACTION!
Here's why Blu Ray Movies is a perfect eBay niche:
Steadily growing market with reasonable competition. This is a perfect time to get involved in Blu Rays as you'll see a phenomenal growth in popularity & demand within the next couple of years. A lot of potential since not many DVD sellers are fully aware of what's going on.
Requires very low investment. You can buy 10 movies for less than £100 and make 30% to 50% profit within 2 weeks! Isn't that what you have always been looking for?
Small risk comparing to high priced items like electronics. You don't have to worry about guarantee & after sales service. C'mon – it's only a movie disc!
It's a small product. You don't have to turn your bedroom into a warehouse to sell Blu Ray movies. You can store several hundred items in a desktop locker.
Cheap & easy shipping. With Blu Rays it's very simple – just get padded envelopes and drop them off @ the post office. You don't have to look for specialized boxes. You don't have to look for affordable courier company.
It will cost just £1.45 for the first class, next day delivery via Royal Mail including FREE insurance up to £36, which will automatically cover most of the titles.
