I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the coming “eBay changes and updates for sellers” lately – many of you are wondering what my team and I think about the supposed “new” eBay that is emerging etc.
I’ve been getting updates from trusted friends who were there at the 20th anniversary, but I’m not making any changes to my business at all based on what I’m seeing and hearing so far.
Here’s the BIGGEST reason why:
Regardless of what policies eBay puts into place, the new “rules” don’t matter if the shoppers aren’t showing up…and Amazon is KICKING EBAY’s BUTT in that department, so it’s a bit of a non-issue to me.
I’m much more of a “wait and see” kind of guy. That’s how I avoid jumping in with too much gusto and regretting it.
Slow…and…steady…. wins the race.
We are still doing decent volume on eBay- and will continue to do so, but I’m not spending much time at all on what eBay “says they are changing”.
I’ll do like I always do. I’ll sit back and ignore what people are SAYING and PLANNING and I’ll wait patiently to see what RESULTS the creative early adapters are GETTING. This is a non-emotional numbers decision for me (and it should be for you too). Once I know the NUMBERS I’ll share with all of you as the best ideas float to the top like they always do around here.
For now though, this entire discussion is still a bit of a non-story to me personally. Show me, don’t tell me.
