If you want to find someone to help you getting started on eBay, there is an easy way to do it: find a mentor. An eBay mentor will guide you through the process of your first couple transactions, giving you hints and tricks that only the eBay professionals and top sellers know. Here are five steps to finding a great mentor that can help you through a difficult beginning on eBay.
Step One: Take a look at the eBay seller’s listings. By looking at eBay seller’s listings, you are going to get a good idea of who is a good seller and who isn’t. If you want a good mentor, you should be looking for someone who specializes on selling at eBay. This means that they won’t have an outside job, and can answer the detailed questions that you have easily. If you are going to go with a mentorship program that includes books and worksheets to do by yourself, you want to make sure that this program is going to be useful for what you’re selling.
Step Two: Once you have found out a person or a program, you’re really going to want to check the feedback of that person. If the mentor is a person, they should have consistently good feedback and if it’s a program, they should be able to give you a couple of email addresses of some of their success stories. Checking up on a person or program is an important (but often overlooked) step.
Step Three: After you have found a program and checked to see that is legit, you are going to want to find out about any guarantees that the program offers. A lot of them will offer a money back guarantee if you don’t double the amount of sales or if you are unsatisfied. Make sure you find out if your program offers any of these options. If it doesn’t, you are going to want to make sure that it really is the right one for you.
Step Four: You probably should make one final check to see if the program is legit. Enter the name of the program or the person that you’re going to work with into Google and see what it comes up with. Sure, the mentor program may have a fancy website, but if there are a lot of angry people saying that the program didn’t work or that it is a scam, it’s better to make a second check than it is to lose your money.
Step Five: Buy the program and to enjoy yourself. You are probably going the learning a lot and you should take your time and make sure that the information really soaks in.
Finding a mentor on eBay is simple to do, but finding a great one is a bit more difficult. When you choose an individual or a specific program, it pays to do a little research before plunking down your hard earned cash.
