Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

If you’re considering starting an online storefront by selling on eBay, you might wonder what products to offer in your auctions. Don’t rush into this decision, think carefully before you decide on what to sell.

Here are some handy rules of thumb when choosing items to sell on eBay:

1. Don’t sell “high demand” gadgets. I know this sounds wacky but think about it: If you decide you’re going to sell MP3 players, your competition will be companies like Apple, Samsung, Creative, and Rio.

2. Sell consumable goods. Consumable goods are things that people need, use up, and will come back for more. An example of some consumable goods is computer paper, ink jet cartridges, and even housewares like candles.

3. Sell collectibles and rarities.
When someone is looking for something that you can’t get just anywhere, they always think of looking for it on eBay.

4. Sell your knowledge.
Another great item to sell on eBay is your knowledge or expertise. Create a PDF about “how to make money” or “how to bake a cake” and people will bid on the items for the information.

Make sure there is sufficient demand for your products so that you can make a decent profit off of your venture!
