With all the challenges and competition of selling on eBay I do highly recommend to all sellers to host at least one charity auction a month.
Charity auctions are not only a brilliant marketing tool, but they are a “true” way to help an organization.
It’s a Win-Win situation!
eBay has developed an organization called: eBay Giving Works. This great team helps keep eBay safe by providing trusted non-profits to be a part of the program. “Better Sales, Better World”
I filmed a bit of the presentation about eBay Giving works at the eBay Live event in Boston, June 2007. CLICK HERE to watch the clip!
Since the launching of eBay giving works, more than $100 million has been raised for charities worldwide from listings sold on eBay!
To be a part of this “Big Picture” is very rewarding! I raised over a thousand dollars last year for charity and this year I have set a plan to raise even more!
I wrote an ebook with a percent of the proceeds going to my charity of choice for this year: DOUA.
I sell it in my eBay store: Ask Danna and you’re welcome to pick up a copy. BUT, as my special gift to you, my Practical Ecommerce blog readers, I am offering this ebook for Free!
CLICK HERE to download it. PDF format. It also contains resale rights. Which means, your welcome to give it away or sell it if desired?
As explained in my eBook, the first step for registered ebay sellers is to join “Mission Fish”.
Mission Fish is the exclusive charity solution provider for eBay Giving Works. Thanks to Mission Fish, you can support a charity of your choice and know that it has gone through the proper channels of approval before it is supported by eBay.
If you are a non-profit organization then Mission Fish is the place for you to get started to register with. By doing that, your organization will be available for eBay sellers to pick you to donate an auction for charity!
If you’re not registered with eBay yet, the time is now to sign up, get listing and be a blessing to others by hosting a charity auction today!
