Mystery Woman Discovers A Simple Method

Endless Lead Supply Is Cheap (Even Free) to You!
I'm about to tell you an amazing true story that just might change your life.
A few months ago, I was standing in line at a local thrift store. As an antique collector I regularly visit these stores to find treasures people donated without knowing the value.
Anyway, a very well dressed woman was in line in front of me. She had a large stack of books…a few from the "Chicken Soup For The Soul" series…and other motivational, business and self-help type books.
I asked her what she was going to do with the books, and she replied, "I sell them on eBay."
Now this puzzled me. After all, I have taught thousands of people how to make a good living on eBay, but I never - I mean absolutely never - would consider buying books for a dollar each just to sell them on eBay for 2 or 3 dollars.
It just isn't worth the time when you factor in all the costs and the hassles. There had to be something more to her story. After all, she was well dressed, and while I don't buy women's clothing, I do recognize fine things when I see them. (She was fine!) So I asked her for the rest of the story.
She gave me a coy look - maybe she was flirting with me! What she said next made me forget all about flirting. She told me she puts sales letters inside the books when she mails them in order to build her down line.
Suddenly it all made sense to me. She had stumbled on to the secret of prospecting on eBay. I followed her out of the store and pressed her for additional information. I was persistent enough to find out she does nothing more than stick sales letters into books hoping people read them before she rushed off in her gunmetal grey Lexus.
Too Bad for Her. . .
Now bear with me here, I am not referring to the fact that she drove away from me. What she really drove away from was the ability to supercharge her lead generating system.
Let me explain - I started generating leads on eBay in 1998. Since then, I have created automated eBay prospecting systems to generate leads for expensive products, for affiliate products, for my services, and even membership sites.
Simply put, she is where I was seven years ago. In other words, she is seven years behind me. If she had spent a few more minutes batting her long eyelashes at me, or - even better - had a cup of coffee with me, I might have broken down and told her exactly how to improve her system.
You see, while she had made an important discovery most marketers miss completely, she hadn't taken the next step. She wasn't following up with buyers, or even targeting specific prospects.
In fact, she was assuming anyone who bought a business self-help or motivational book would be a good prospect for her program. This assumption increased her workload, and...combined with her inability to follow up...surely decreased her results.
Even worse, she wasn't trying to capture the names of people who looked at her auctions but didn't buy.
Think about it, most auctions only have one high bidder. Sure, you can do multiple item auctions with buy-it-now and sell to more than one bidder, but even then only a fraction of lookers will be buyers.
The truth is she needed to learn how to divert auction viewers to her website in order to capture their names and email addresses. If she has said yes to my offer of a cup of coffee, I would have shown her how to do this automatically over a single cup of coffee.
In spite of her failing to take the next step, she had developed an eBay prospecting system. Sure it's crude. It's not very effective, but it works for her.
Now Lets Talk About You. . .
Are you an affiliate marketer looking to grow your list?
Are you involved in direct sales and want a bigger down line?
Would you like to grow your business with an autopilot lead generating system?
Are you using PPC ads to get newsletter subscribers?
If you answered yes to any of these questions read on. . .
Many people spend small fortunes on PPC advertising, search engine optimization, and other methods to get traffic to their websites.
Others use direct mail and direct response advertising to get leads for their products.
These people understand the value of traffic and leads, but they are ignoring a fantastic source of qualified traffic.
eBay is one of the most talked about websites in the world. Even your eighty-year old neighbor who doesn't even have a computer knows what eBay is. In fact, the word eBay has become a verb. People no longer say "I am going to sell this on eBay." They say, "I am going to eBay it."
Even better, because of eBay's category structure, you can get in front of people who are already interested in your products and services. This means the visitors to eBay are qualified traffic.
The problem is many people do not understand exactly how to generate leads on eBay. They think ebay is a place to sell products.
eBay Isn't Just A Place For Selling Products
Perhaps you tried selling your products on eBay with little success? Maybe you were productive in your eBay activities, but consider eBay a chore of listing and shipping, listing and shipping? Maybe you've even taken a baby step in the right direction like the woman from the thrift store?
You Can Do Better
You can easily create a completely automated system for capturing the names and email addresses of people who look at your auctions. Once you've set up your system, you'll run auctions for low priced, easy to ship items specifically selected to appeal to your best prospects. You can even sell digitally delivered items on eBay and skip going to the post office.
Get this...instead of writing an auction for a different book every week like the mystery woman, you'll save time by using the same auction over and over again. You'll only have to write the auction once.
Then, every time you run an auction, you will generate two types of prospects:
This is cheaper and more effective than PPC advertising, direct mail, and print advertising.
- People who looked at your auctions, and gave you an email address
- People who bought the introductory product.
How It Works
Here's the deal, we run fixed priced, buy-it-now auctions for 5 items at a price of 4.97 each plus $5.00 shipping and handling. The listing costs 70 cents in eBay fees.
As a result of running one auction, we get between twenty and thirty people to look at the auction, and 6 to 10 people opt in to the newsletter. If we just looked at these numbers, we are paying between 7 and 12 cents per new subscriber.
That's better than almost any PPC campaign. The lowest cost PPC ad on Yahoo is 10 cents, so you would need 83% of your clicks to result in a subscription just to match the 12 cents per new subscriber we pay on eBay. I won't even mention the cost of direct mail.
But it gets better. . .
Remember, we are selling a product on eBay. (You have to sell products because eBay's rules prohibit auctions were nothing is sold.)
In the example shown in the manual, we pay 92 cents for each item, and ship by mail for $3.85. Because we receive $9.97 for each sale, one sale more than covers all our costs of getting the new subscribers.
Here's a look at the numbers for an auction* we ran that resulted in one sale and 10 opt in subscribers.
|eBay listing fee
|eBay end of auction fee
We sold one product for $9.97, and paid 6.20 in costs leaving us $3.67 in profits. Plus we got ten new subscribers, and a buyer for the introductory product for free.
Now $3.67 doesn't sound like much, but that wasn't the goal. The goal was to get leads for a more expensive product. We got eleven leads, and - this is cool - one lead already knows we can be trusted to deliver when he purchases from us in the future.
Even better, with the exception of mailing the product, everything is automatic. Just rerun the same eBay auction, and people will jump into your leads funnel. Your autoresponder will send out emails to your prospects automatically.
* Note: This is an example using one auction's results. I have specifically selected an auction with marginal results so you do not get mislead. I have done auctions with greater results, and done auctions with worse results. Your results will depend entirely upon your skills and implementation of the material covered in the manual. You will also run more than one auction at a time when you get your system working.

That was a mind-blowing conference call last night.
I just read through the Prospecting on eBay book, and my brain is spinning twice as fast. The worst part is it's a long holiday weekend here in Canada and I can't start using the
information until Tuesday.
Prospecting on eBay made me realize that there was something I was missing. Something that made the whole deal worthwhile. Create a mailing list without violating eBay's rules. This makes the sale of anything at (to me) ridiculous low prices suddenly more than worthwhile. You have converted me to the path I couldn't see.
Oh, one last thing. You won't risk a penny either. Because I will back you with a. . .
