Help Sell Instruments on eBay!


Visitors: 137

Do you have experience with any area of the music industry or have any experience selling musical instruments? Are you able to play multiple musical instruments? Are you familiar with the inner workings of the auction site, eBay? If so, then your services are in demand!

You are the perfect person to offer your services to people who are hoping to sell their musical instruments but who do not have the knowledge needed to do so. You can help them to make as much money as possible by selling their musical instruments, accessories, or sheet music using the online auction site, eBay. Many people have musical instruments in their attics or storage units. These instruments may have been left behind by; a student who lost interest in taking lessons, or in storage from their great-uncle Joe.

Some people collect musical instruments and other musical paraphernalia at garage sales and flea markets with the idea of some day taking lessons and they just never get around to doing it and they end up with an unused instrument in some dark corner of a closet, just sitting there and gathering dust. You will help these people turn their neglected instruments into cash. Most people who have never used an online auction site before are quite apprehensive to getting started and even if they decide to try it out, they rarely have the expertise to use it effectively. They may manage to sell their item but do not know how to list it properly and so do not sell the item at a reasonable profit. Other people just lack the time needed to create a selling identity and to type up an item description.

Since you will be providing the expertise for these people, you can charge them a percentage of the item's selling price. Your customers should also be responsible for paying for the listing fees and a small fee to pay for your time spent typing up the listing. They can drop the item off at your location so that you can provide a more accurate description and take appropriate photos. After the item sells, you will also mail it out to the buyer. The buyer will pay all shipping and handling fees so there is no need to charge your customers for this service. Since you will handle the shipping for the seller it is one less headache for your customers to worry about.

You may also want to do a small amount of research to find out what musical items of a similar nature are currently selling for. If there are many similar items for sale, you will need to take a little extra time to describe the item in further detail and provide colorful, crisp, detailed pictures of the item to make it more appealing to potential buyers. You should also provide pictures and complete but brief descriptions of any defects or imperfections that may be found on the item. Your client base will quickly grow with your very first successful sale as grateful customers sing your praises and your selling talents spread through word of mouth.
