Making Money when Online Venues are Slow


Online Venues vs Local Sales

We all need to raise some quick cash sometimes and did you ever wonder what some of your choices might be? Online sellers are dependent on customers buying their items and like anything else there are both good and bad weeks. We all hope for solid sales weeks year round but anyone that sells online knows this is near impossible to achieve although it would be nice.

If you use the auction format you may have bids but need to wait until the item is sold and paid for to see any money. We also know more and more venues are fixed price which buyers seem to be getting used to and buying but again we have to wait for that buyer to buy that item.

Then there are times when bills come due and these venues are not generating the income to pay those bills or at least not by the time they are due. You know by now that just about every online seller has had this happen at one time or another.

The question is what to do and of course we all have a bit of a heads up about this knowing when our bills are due and also what money we have on hand to pay those bills.

There are some options such as Cheapcyle, local billboards, local papers, word of mouth, Craigslist and EBay Classifieds. Over the next few days I will share how I have made each of these raise some much needed cash at times and you can too.
