How to Deal With Slow Summer eBay Sales

It's that time again. Time to regroup and get ready for Back to School and 4th quarter.

If your eBay sales are slow, as they may be during summer, here is some advice in the form of a video. Summer is a slow time for many retail businesses and other industries, don't take it personally. Have patience, it is just a cycle.

Lots of ideas here for how to use this slow time in a productive way. Sales will bounce back, they always do!



If you have not booked your seat for the Dallas Training Event, it is time! Reservations must be made at the hotel (if you plan on staying overnight) by July 1st. Seating is limited for the training, so you don't want to miss it!

Also, now booking for:

Charlotte on August 19 (SouthPark Area)

Orlando on September 16 (Disney Area)

Join Us in Dallas on July 22 for LIVE in Person eBay Training



We are so excited about our upcoming training in Dallas on July 22.  There was such a large response that we have secured a larger room so that more people can attend. And this was no easy task! I called about 6 hotels before finding one that had any available conference rooms. Lots of weddings, family reunions, and other events taking place so meeting rooms were scarce.

So, here are the details:

WHAT:     8 hours of hands-on training - read all the details here

WHEN:     Saturday, July 22 from 10 AM to 6 PM


COST:       $749 for the 8-hour workshop (Payment plan available - contact me here for info.)

ROOM RATE: We have a special room rate of $125 per night for up to 3 nights. This is a Marriott Suites, so all rooms are suites. Rooms must be booked by July 1 to get this rate. I can send you a direct link to make reservations online. 

Secure your space now so you won't miss this event in Dallas. See what the sellers in Atlanta had to say about this event, or feel free to contact me here with any questions or further details.

See you in Dallas!

New Feature - eBay Daily Video Tips



Don't have time to read up on eBay information? Well now you can listen. I have added a new playlist on YouTube for Daily eBay Video Tips.

No topic is off limits! These tips are 2-5 minutes long, on a specific topic, straight to the point, with links to facts to back up what I am telling you about. No rambling, no fluff, no lengthy diatribes about this or that - just short, sweet, and to the point information with no background noise or distractions. Real information you can use!

So far I have 15 videos ready - you can just let the playlist run while you work on other things.

I have been selling on eBay since 2003 so I have many years of eBay experiences rolling around in my head that I can share with you to help you make more money on eBay. You know, those "oh by the way" thoughts you get at 2 in the morning...

The playlist is here. If you are not subscribed to my YouTube Channel, make sure to click the red subscribe button so you will get these tips in your email as soon as they are posted.

I am open for suggestions on topics! What do YOU want to know about?

See you on YouTube!

Atlanta eBay Workshop a Success - Next Stops Dallas, Charlotte, and Orlando!


Our Atlanta Live Training was a success! What a great group of people to spend the day with learning about selling clothing on eBay. We even had one student drive all the way from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Atlanta! That is like a 17 hour road trip. She said she wanted to spend the weekend with like minded people and her peeps just happened to be gathering 1,100 miles away so she jumped in the car and drove south!

Testimonials from a few of the attendees:

Linda H. was said this about the workshop:


Linda sold her home in Buckhead that she had been living in for 40 years, and has much of her stuff in storage. She wants to learn more about how to sell her "accumulation" and downsize. 

The Mays drove over from Birmingham for the day, and they had this to say:


It is so nice when spouses are both on board with the business and it can be a family project. The Mays have 3 teenagers to put through college and eBay is how they plan to finance it. 

Beth posted on Facebook:



Melanie P. and Karen drove down to Atlanta from Cleveland, Georgia. Karen works at the post office and was able to answer some of our most burning USPS questions! Melanie works the medical field in vascular health, and has been selling on eBay for 20 years! They stayed in Atlanta and went shopping on Sunday, and texted me this:



We are so thrilled that everyone who came found the information helpful and enjoyed the day. Here was our agenda:



Are you ready for an 8-hour, hands-on, intensive eBay training? Our tour schedule for the next 3 months is:

Dallas, July 22 (Near DFW Airport)

Charlotte, August 19 (South Park area)

Orlando, September 16 (Disney Area)

If you are interested in attending any of these upcoming trainings, read more about the workshop here.

Deposits can be made NOW to hold your spot, as space is limited. Feel free to contact me here if you would like to discuss payment options or need more information. We need at least 10 people per city to commit to guarantee the event will take place. Dallas is already confirmed. 

We are so excited to be able to help you, in person, with your eBay business and are looking forward to meeting you and having a fun and educational eBay day!

Happy Selling,

Suzanne and Melanie
