She SOLD them on eBay!

"The only time I visit that "other" site is to log in and remove items that I sold on eBay!"
Quote from a fellow eBay seller that I will not name.

I had a nice chat with an eBay friend today who told me she had been "dabbling" with listing items on another auction site. She was sharing with me the temptation of trying out selling outside of the eBay box only because the "other" site was there, it was new so why not?

My feelings are if you want to "dabble" with selling outside of eBay then why not try your own website? Set-up is FREE and easy to do. This option is overlooked by so many.
Blogger has an easy to use format (this is what you are viewing right now btw) and wordpress has an amazing easy to use system as well.

You could blog about your items and send them directly to your eBay items.
You could blog about your items and offer a PayPal "Buy It Now" tab.

I would suggest letting your items "SIT" on a site YOU OWN or in an eBay store. But then again, how long should you let those items SIT? Did you do the research about those items? Is there even a market for them?

Anyhow, I thought it was interesting. This gal put her items into another site and yet they are still listed at eBay as well.
The same items!

The best part was, when she said she only goes back to that other site to log in and remove her items ----->

If you are an eBay seller in a RUT, then you may need an eBay Coach!
I can cheer you on to eBay success!!!
