The Virtual Peddler: Learn how to make a living buying, selling and trading on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist
Times are tough! And, when times are tough -tough people get creative.
That is what The Virtual Peddler is all about. Everyone needs to make some money in this still slow economy.
The economy has improved somewhat since the meltdown in 2008. However, employment has yet to come roaring back.
If you are out of work, then you need to make a lot of money -at least enough to live on. If you are still working, and are like most of us, you could use some extra money.
Over the years I have written over a dozen books about selling on eBay, Amazon and the Internet. But all of them have focused mostly on selling new products. And that is where the problem lies for most people.
It takes money -and risk to buy and sell new products…and these days' money is tight.
Lots of sellers, including me, make good money selling new products -but the profits get squeezed year after year.
Luckily, there's another way to make profits online. Some online sellers sell used and Vintage items and make a good profit. Many times, the profit can be even higher for used goods than for new products.
Let me say that again . . . You can make MORE money selling used goods than selling new items.
Would you rather sell a new pair of blue jeans for $29 and make an $8 profit -or sell a used pair of blue jeans for $29.00 and make a $20.00 profit?
Or how about buying a vintage tape deck for $90 and selling it for $279?
Or, a Folk Music set of CDs for $10, that sold for $165 on eBay
And just last month I found an out-of-print book on Fly Fishing that I bought for $4.00 and sold for $195.00
Those are the kind of margins you can make selling used products if you know the right ones to buy and sell.
Let's look at the problems with selling new products:
Don't get me wrong -you can make a lot of money selling new products -I do. And thousands of eBay sellers do it every day. But the lower risk and the rewards of selling used and vintage products can be much greater.
Thousands of eBay sellers specialize in used and vintage products -many of them large PowerSellers.
Why Sell Used & Vintage Products?
Let's look at the same criteria as we did for new products:
Rather than write a bunch of hype about how you can get rich doing this, I like to imagine the questions you are probably asking yourself right now:
Skip - Isn't a peddler just a junk dealer?
Well, fortunes have been made in junk -but NO! I will show you how to source and sell all types of used products from apparel to electronics, cameras to collectibles, and goods in hundreds of categories. Products that you can mark up 200%, 300% and even 500% and more.
Isn't it a lot more work to find and sell used products?
A lot more? No. But yes there is a bit more. However, I think the risk and rewards far outweigh the little bit of extra work -and I will show you how to streamline and automate much of your workload …and how to get people to bring products to you.
Is this just another book about going to garage sales?
No. Although I do mention garage sales, we cover much-much more. Garage sales are just one of the Seven different ways I show you how to source used and vintage products that you can make money with.
The Virtual Peddler is a complete system for buying and selling online -and not just eBay. We cover Craigslist, Amazon, Upillar, various classified sites and others. Oh, and by the way - you get the best-selling eBook about garage sales as one of your free bonuses.
Can someone really make a living doing this?
There are about 60,000 + sellers making a full time living selling on eBay and many more selling on Craigslist, Amazon, Overstock and other sites. I have no way to give you an exact number, but there are thousands of people making a living online who never sell a new product. I know because many of them are my readers, and I talk with them all the time.
I sell both new and used products today, but for the first two years on eBay, all I sold were used books, a few antiques and vintage & collectible products. We made enough money that my wife was able to quit her job and work at home full time. A few years later I left a six figure corporate job and I joined her at home.
Here are just a few of the products I have actually sold on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist -and what I paid for them:
Notice that the last two items were free. That's right - free. I will show you several places and
methods to find free merchandise that you can resell. So even if you are
broke you can get started doing this.
These aren't one-time flukes. There are thousands of sellers who do this on eBay every day. And you can find these deals every day too.
I've lost my job. Could I really replace my income doing this?
Well, of course that depends on you and how much your income was. There are
tons of people doing a version of this that use it to make extra money -a
few hundred a week. And then, there are large PowerSellers who do this and
make a full time living ($100K+ per year).
OK Skip - I am interested. How much does it cost and what do I get?
First - Here is what you get:
The Virtual Peddler and all the bonuses is $17.00 and comes with my no-nonsense, 90-day, money back guarantee.
90-Day No Risk Guarantee
Remember there is no risk. I have transferred all the risk to myself. You have a full 90-days to decide. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, just contact me and I will refund your full purchase price.
Disclaimer: New FTC regulations require that when I talk about money made
selling products with this system that I have to state what the “average” person
made doing this. Well, as you can imagine I have no way of knowing that, so to
comply with the law I have to state here that the average person made less than
one penny with this system.
