We recently asked our eBay for Business Facebook community what they listen to while listing and shipping their eBay items. While answers included television shows, news, and the sweet sound of silence, many sellers said they love to work to music—and it seems their musical tastes cover just about every genre.
Several sellers declared their love of oldies and classic rock, some said they prefer pop and hip-hop, and seller Reid L. proclaimed his affection for gangster rap, saying there’s “nothing like songs about fat stacks and Benjamins (money) to get me motivated.”
Our 2017 SHINE winners also shared their audio preferences. For Young Entrepreneur winner Ciara Brown of The Diamond Hanger, the selection varies with the mood in her shop. “We’ll listen to techno, rap, maybe a little R&B if we’re stressed,” she said. “We turn the music all the way up, especially when we’re listing items.” Rising Star winner Katy Zilverberg of A Boutique for Him also confessed to eclectic tastes. “I listen to my oldies playlist and hip-hop with Kendrick Lamar—it just depends on my mood.”
Woman-Owned Business winner Melissa Crook of Sticky Fingers Vinyl stays true to her roots. “We’re from the South,” she said. “We listen to a lot of modern country music.” And, 2017 Small Business of the Year Award winner Angie Cardona-Nelson of eWaste Direct said music is a must. “I like salsa, Spanish music, and pop music from the 80s and 90s. We don't work in my warehouse without music!”
