My May eBay challenge – Day 8

As of EOD 7th May
Target: £77
Actual:  £53.59

I am closer to my target compared to the same day in April.  I really have the bit between my teeth this month.

Today, I want to tell you about another very simple traffic generation tactic that is very easy and free to implement.  It is very similar to the method I spoke about in my last post.  That is build a blog, but this time build a blog on the eBay site itself.  Not a lot of people know you can do this.  Ofcourse, you can only post about eBay related topics, but that is fine, as you want to write about your eBay listings.

I will do a separate post about how to do this so that it has a relevant post heading, but briefly, follow these steps:

1.  Log in to your eBay account
2.  Click on your eBay username that is a link.   This takes you to your ‘My World’ page.
3.  Click on ‘Add Content’
4.  Down the right hand side, you will see ‘Add Modules’.  One of these is a blog.  Just follow the steps, it’s very simple.

Then what I do, is each time I write an eBay related topic, I add the same post to my eBay blog just by using copy and paste.

You will be surprised as to how many hits your eBay blog gets.  At the time of writing this post, I have had 1715 visitors to my blog on eBay.  That’s 1715 potential visitors I would not otherwise have had.

Also you get your own url for the eBay blog.  Mine is http://blogs.ebay.co.uk/mompessons.  Go ahead and take a look.  You will see this same post on there.

So go get blogging.
