Your video moving around like that is making me sea sick. And the audio drops out at points. You might have the best info out there but why would I bother listening to you if you put out that shitty of a video?
Thanks for the easy to find title!! I watched this video months ago. I have a store now and sales have not recovered from June. I was walking my dog in the park today thinking, "I've GOT to watch this video again!!" It's too easy to get distracted on YouTube, but I MADE myself find this video and I shared it too. Thanks so much Casey!
Ok, update: Since I cleaned up my keyword fields (erased all, and entered a few simple keywords), I went from 0 sales, to aprox 3 sales a day of really old, old inventory that was NOT moving!!! The prices were cut months ago to the bone.
Great job! We have had Ebay stores one and off since 1998. Our current store has been in business since 2003. I will have to go in and use this information tonight!
Great video. One concern(because I'm new). In each category you have primary keyword 1 and primary keyword 2. Then you have six boxes for secondary keywords. Can I utilize each secondary keyword box to input as many brands as I have in that particular category and if so do I have to Separate each word with a comma OR can I only use descriptions of a listing which is how the eBay default fills them in. In that case I would only be able to utilize 6 listings from each category. For example if I input osh kosh, baby gap, Gymboree, baby boy, baby girl. Will my stuff only come up on a google search if someone inputs it exactly that way or Would it still come up if someone just typed "Gymboree" in google or whatever search engine. Thank you so much. I'm sorry this is long but I wanted the question to be specific.
Should i just list every brand that i sell in the custom keyword boxed? I'm struggling to fill the boxes up with keywords haha. I sell jeans for example, so i have denim/blue/slim and the main brands that i sell but i really can't think of enough that will fill the 26 characters in each box.
Ok......I was all over this stuff a couple of weeks ago and Ebay itself (Griff!) is telling store owners that Ebay AND other search engines are NOT using those category keywords anymore. They claim that it's still showing on our "manage store" page because it would be too costly or time consuming for Ebay to remove it and thereby remove all this confusion. Any comments regarding this? I don't know WHO to believe anymore...I DID change my category keywords and they have stuck so far....but plenty of folks are saying it's just all a waste of time as this is an outdated (??) feature.
I guess we will see, I wonder how long it takes for the engines to crawl them. On the plus side just sold a pair of shoes lol. It seems Weekends are the only time I sell things. Though Slow at least they sell :)
Cody - this was awesome!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU. I will set up a calendar reminder to see where we are in 30 days. I am subscribed and appreciate all your vids. We travel to and from Jax from Navarre Beach. Maybe we can hook up and go sourcing with you one day LOL
As always, thanks for the great information. I had sold some stuff on Ebay years ago and recently decided to start selling full-time. I am using my old account and it seems that it is much harder to sell now versus say 10 years ago. I am only selling a couple of items per week. I don't have a store, just a regular selling account. What can I do to boost my sales? I feel like I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what.
Casey, I think a good video in your beginners series is how to handle taxes. As a small beginning seller Tax form Schedule C is very confusing when they want to know the opening and closing inventory. Do you really take an inventory value on January 1st and again on December 31st? I would like to use the short form Schedule C-EZ but it says that if you had any inventory during the year you must use Schedule C. There is conflicting information in the IRS Publication 334. "Generally, if you produce, purchase, or sell merchandise in your business, you must keep an inventory and use the accrual method for purchases and sales of merchandise. However, the following taxpayers can use the cash method of accounting even if they produce, purchase, or sell merchandise. These taxpayers can also account for inventoriable items as materials and supplies that are not incidental" (minor).
1. A qualifying taxpayer under Revenue Procedure
2001-10 in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-2.
2. A qualifying small business taxpayer under Revenue
Procedure 2002-28 in Internal Revenue Bulletin
Materials and supplies that are not incidental. If you account for inventoriable items as materials and supplies that are not incidental, you will deduct the cost of the items you would otherwise include in inventory in the year you sell the items, or the year you pay for them, whichever
I talked to an IRS guy today and he wasn't much help. I know that you are in a completely different league but, how did you handle this when you first started out with about 50 listed items?
It's just within the same category; however, I would suggest not overusing the same keywords because Google loves organization and if your keywords match up for 2 or 3 different categories that are not absolutely on par or similar to each other, Google might see you as having 'no authority' and pumping you down in the search results. Same thing for Bing, Yahoo, etc. But if your categories are extremely similar, then you can use the same keywords but really try not to use a lot of the same keywords so that you can be original b/c Google also loves uniqueness and they pick up on it. Real quick tip tho, you CAN use the same ONE keyword in each category IF the categories are extremely similar - this could boost your results. Please see capitalized words in last sentence. I am an SEO specialist so I wanted to answer this question. Have a great week :)
Don't those keywords actually have to be words that appear on the page you are trying to rank. not just words that are relevant. I'm pretty sure that's how it works. Google is the very reason I decided to stop doing sell similar on listings unless the listing was bad. if google has your listing indexed, once you do a sell similar, that initial listing is ranked for nothing and you have to wait for the new one to rank. I now don't do sell similar unless impressions and clicks drop drastically. correct me if I'm wrong in anything I've said here but that's how I see it. I'm still new and learning.
Hey i want to purchase the thermal printer you have in your description, can that print the package list as well?? I like printing all the labels and using the package list on ebay to pull stuff from my inventory.
Thanks dude. Loving the videos. QUESTION: Have you done a video on Taxes at the end of the year yet???? A walk through of that process would be nice, what you need, what the process is with the eBay pay pal aspect, etc. since you've been through it. That would be great. Unless you've already done so, just wanting to avoid any unknowns when it's already too late. Thanks !
