There’s something about the start of a New Year that encourages us to reflect on who we want to be, where we want to go, and how we can achieve our dreams. It’s the perfect time to take stock of your life and your business and make a plan. To help you out, we’ve come up with seven resolutions for eBay sellers. Whether you tackle one or several, we hope these ideas inspire you to start the new year off right.
Is clutter keeping you from being more efficient? Is your inventory a chaotic mess of boxes and shelves? Are your financial records a nightmare of numbers? There’s no time like the New Year to get your business in order, get organized, and bring order to any chaos that’s keeping your business from running like a well-oiled machine.
The way you present your business to the world—with quality photos, a memorable brand, and professional packaging—can have a big impact on sales. What better time than now to start presenting yourself as a unique business that buyers will remember?
You can’t make the right decisions about your business if you don’t have the right information—both about your own business and the competition. Spend some time doing research into your own business and the competitive landscape so that you’re fully informed when it’s time to make critical choices.
As your business grows, it may be time to think about taking on more help, especially if demand for your items is strong enough that your income potential is limited by your ability to keep up.
If you’ve seen big success this year, consider giving back to those less fortunate—both in the eBay community and the world at large—by contributing your time, money, or expertise.
The eBay community is a great place to learn, connect with other sellers, and forge connections in what can be a lonely job as an entrepreneur or small business owner. This year, make it a resolution to get involved in the eBay community, both online and in person out in the world.
Make a Plan
As the old adage goes, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Whatever your resolutions, figure out the steps you need to take to achieve them and make it a priority to execute your plan.
