Profit through Other Peoples eBay Errors

There are many issues that influence how an eBay auction ends. Timing, Description, Title, Photos, the list could go on and on. However, one tiny error will be the deciding factor on what the final price is & whether your auction ends successfully or not.

It's an error I've made many times and much greater sellers than I make on a daily basis. It doesn't matter whether your new to eBay or an established power seller, almost everyone at some point will make this fundamental mistake.

Firstly what you need to release is how eBayers use the site. Upto 70% of users type in the item they are looking for directly into the search facility. Now eBays search facility only check the words you enter against the title of listings - not the description or sub-title.

Therefore to get the right exposure for your item you have to get the correct words into the title. By not entering the correct combination of relevant words, you will be missing out on potential bidders. That's why I always recommend using services such as eBay pulse (www.pulse.ebay.co.uk) & Keyword Pro (trading-web-solutions.com/keywords/) before you submit your listing.

Put simply if you have keywords that are searched for, your item will appear more than competiting & similar items. It's not rocket science.

And this brings me to the biggest mistake & most costly mistake that we make on eBay. If you get every other aspect of your listing right and get this wrong, your just throwing away your listing fee and wasting your own time.

By making a simple spelling mistake in your title, almost no one is going to see your item. Entering Playstatoin instead of Playstation, Montior instead of Monitor your item is NOT going to get found because the vast majority of users are not going to search for Playstatoin or Montior.

But it's something that keeps happening with thousands of items on a daily basis. And this is where you can profit from it. By deliberately searching for incorrectly spelt words you will uncover items with almost no interest allowing you to grab yourself a bargain at next to nothing.

Regardless of what kind of item your looking for, there are so many listings on eBay it won't be long before you find an item with a spelling mistake in it's title. And it's now made even easier though two services that search directly for misspelt words on eBay.

FatFingers.com & Auctionintelligence.com will search there way though various eBay sites looking for these listings. Just type in what your after & away it flies, trying every combination of spelling mistake. Using these two services you'll be able to grab yourself a bargain or even buy stuff just to relist it correctly & make yourself huge profits. Good luck & let me know how you get on.
