  • If you make your own item, then try listing it on because it caters to the "homemade" items. Anything from homemade hair clips to pillows to clothing!

    Your business all starts from an idea!

  • You could make jewlery, gift baskets, decorated gift bags/boxes...I'm not very crafty so I don't have a lot of ideas for you, sorry.

  • You can try direct sales but most will not let you sell on eBay. I do Scentsy and I definitely don't even need eBay. I do one home party and one craft fair each month. Everything else is from home and everything I around my schedule.

  • Why not sign on with a company that handles all of shipping, all money transactions, & sells products & services that people buy everyday like cell phone, internet, travel packages, clothing, books, almost everything... then use inbound marketing to help people find you when they want to purchase (you don't have to beg people to buy what they are already buying. Your business would be like an online kiosk except the over head would be super low. You would receive a paycheck & not have to carry inventory!

  • You can actually start your business on both eBay and Etsy if you'd like. That would reach a pretty big marketplace for you. Advertise your businesses on some free advertising sites and hopefully it will go from there!
