Post Working on my passion
I have a passion for music and hence selling records, cd's etc should be a good line for me, as I believe if you stick with something you really have a passion for eventually the money will come in.

Does anyone else deal in music and know of any good sources I can get items to resell from. So far I have only sold a few of my personal collection.

I also enjoy reading motivational books and so would also like to sell e books as i have spent many a day reading countless books.

again any pointers here please ?

I completely agree with what you're saying, if you stick to what you know you can't go far wrong!

With regards to ebooks, there's always more to be written, the old 90 day powerseller challenge and the bruce lee martial arts ebooks aren't making anyone any money nowadays, but new ebooks always seem to be very good sellers, espacially if you have a good sales pitch to go with it!

Good Luck!

Oh and welcome to the powersellers forum! :D

Hi and welcome :)

I have loads of singles and albums I would love to sell,
but I never did it because I wasnt sure about how to do the package bit,
so if you have any ideas I would be happy to know :)

I've mentioned before that I started on eBay by selling my decks and then about 200 hundred or CD's afterwards. It is a HUUUGE market on eBay, and a fair few of the top-sellers do nothing but CD's, DVD's or records - for example,jayandmarie,moviemarz,rikkyboy69,drstevew

The majority of CD's sold within 2 or 3 listings, but I was left with a few that had no interest, so I batched them together and sold in the wholesale category.

Packaging is easy - an A5 sized jiffybag is substantial enough to protect against most knocks, bumps and drops during postage, although I started to use thick polythene mailing bags and bubble wrap, as it brought the weight down just enough to drop into a lower price band!

I sold most of these at £1.00 p&p - this covered the cost of a stamp, the jiffy bag (10p each when bought 150 at a time) and made a contribution to the selling and paypal fees. I realised though that a lot of sellers are charging anything up to £3.50 for P&P, so there is plenty of room to experiment with pricing to cover all costs, rather than just contribute to them. Offering P&P at £1.00 I now think I was selling myself short compared to the majority of CD sales. That's not being greedy, it is simply falling in with the markets acceptance!
Selling vinyl records is a different matter, but then again it is a different market. I sold a couple of "specialist interest" records - the stuff that your grandmother listens to that nobody has ever heard off - quite succesfully. I just followed some good advice on P&P from a few reviews on eBay - HERE,HERE, and HERE. Sending LP's in a pizza box is a stroke of genius!!

If you have a serious number of items to sell, consider opening a shop - they can be listed from 6p per 30days with a gallery. Put a few of your more desirable, rare or novelty items on a featured listing and then make that listing full of links back to your shop items. It costs about £20 to list, but it stays at the top of the category searches for 10 days and will give you LOADS of exposure, and drive traffic to the shop to see the other listings. Once people are in the shop, have your categories clearly marked down one side, and then make sure all your listing titles are clear and descriptive. In eBay shops it is much quicker to "click back" than it is to walk out of a shop in a real high street - you have to make people stay in your shop!

Even without a shop, make sure all of your listings have a "See my Other Items" link somewhere, or in different places around the screen - the chances are if you are selling your collection, tghere are going to be people looking at one item, that will be interested in others - just as you were!

With regards sourcing stock, these are staple items at carboot sales and jumble sales, cheap stock to get you started with, then look at some of the larger internet wholesalers - we have a fair few options in the wholesaler thread. There is also a company in Stafford called Total Home Entertainment, who distribute to Woolworths, Tesco's etc - thats for when you get into the big boys league of selling, but they will open accounts for sole-traders!

Think Big!!

Oh, and welcome to the forum - not all the advice may be as comprehensive as this, but I have a lot of build-up energy tonight!!

I started by buying a few vinyls from other sellers, not expensive ones. This was just to see how a few different people packaged and sent their items. Being a great believer in recycling I used these same packages (just patched up with some brown tape) to send out the first few records I sold. You can by ready made packaging on e bay, including card stiffners to protect records from bending, but I think the easiest way is to order of a couple of the successful sellers in your cbategory and just copy what they are doing, you can always resell them on and get a couple more feedbacks .

Pizza boxes!! It's a packaging sensation! It's the future - I've [not] tasted it!!!


(That will probably mean very little to our new US members - not sure if the legend that is Peter Kay has cracked the US market yet!)
