With all the new options for reading books electronically, will paper books soon become a thing of the past? Lynn Dralle, The Queen of Auctions, an eBay Certified Provider and Power Seller, doesn’t think so. Neither does Sheila Anderson Mochrie, an expert eBay book seller. These two sellers have found that selling books online is not only lucrative, it may become the most common and easiest way for buyers to purchase books as brick and mortar stores continue to go out of business.
Together, Dralle and Mochrie have created two download-able teleseminars detailing the ins and outs of how to sell books on eBay and Amazon.com. Though Dralle usually specializes in selling dinnerware online, she recently found that books are both inexpensive to buy and very easy to sell. “Since August, I have listed about 1500 books and music CDs. I have been selling about $1,000 worth every month,” said Dralle. As an eBay seller for over 10 years, Dralle knows more about eBay than most people can learn. Mochrie and Dralle make a great pair with their expertise in selling books online and in their last teleseminar they provided concrete tips on how to sell books on eBay and Amazon
While book sales may have dropped steadily since the emergence of electronic books, around 5% in the last 2 years, online book sales have continued to grow each year and currently claim about 5% of the market (source: online.wsj.com). Selling books online can be a long, arduous, and costly process, but Mochrie and Dralle teach entrepreneurs how to skip the learning curve and go right to the profitable selling point. “Lynn, I just finished listening to the teleseminar with you and Sheila, and the information was well worth the price of admission,” said one listener. When it comes to selling books on eBay, money is made “in the buying” but it’s easy to make some really bad decisions. Dralle and Mochrie have both learned a great deal as eBay and Amazon book sellers for a combined almost 20 years. They’ve made money with unexpected high sellers and cut their losses on duds.
Now, these two power sellers are taking what they’ve learned and are sharing this information to help other people avoid costly stumbling blocks. Books are some of the best things to sell on eBay and turn a profit. With teleseminars one and two, sellers are learning how to do it themselves as Lynn and Sheila discuss the pros and cons of using book scanners, how to list quickly, and many more critical parts to the business of selling books on eBay and Amazon.com.
It is a big surprise Dralle and Mochrie show entrepreneurs that despite the downturn in selling books in brick and mortar stores, books are some of the best selling items on eBay and Amazon.com. With guidance from these two eBay sellers, ordinary people are becoming eBay aficionados as they improve their eBay listings and build their eBay stores into lucrative businesses.
