Selling Related Products to your Hot Selling Product
If you have found that profitable
niche on eBay, and are enjoying a high number of sales, it makes good
business sense to consider what related products you can also sell. By
offering combine shipping, you can greatly increase the chances of someone
buying a related product to what they have already bid on.
How can you find related products,
particularly if you have stumbled across a hot product area you are not
that experienced in?
Look at your competitors auctions.
What are they trying to up sell with the same items? What other auctions
are they running for items that are related to your hot product?
Then look at online stores
(of the non-eBay variety). What products are they selling in the same
category as your hot product? Do they suggest any related products?
Don't forget to have a look
at Amazon.com to see if your product is listed there. Amazon makes very
good suggestions for products people have purchased with the product you
are viewing, as well as product people recommended in place of the what
you are viewing. So you could definitely get some great product ideas
from this feature at Amazon.
When you have a few products
in mind, then purchase a few of them and list them on eBay. You can see
if they market well on eBay with what you are selling right now - be sure
to cross-market those auctions and recommend them to potential bidders.
This is a great way to test and see if you can up sell any of these products
with your current hot product. And that want to see what sells well and
what doesn't, you can start buying those products in bulk or at wholesale
