Now, don’t worry if you haven’t got a degree in computer science. Most of these websites have a “WYSIWYG” type function. This is a “what you see is what you get.” Kind of like using word and just as easy.

4. Go over to eBay pulse and find out what product is most searched for. Go into each category in more detail to find some really cool niche markets. I always use the Camera and Photo section – Hasselblad Camera as an example of a hungry niche market with their credit cards at the ready.
5. Go over to article directory band find an article that matches the product topic and click on “article Publisher” which is in the top right hand corner.
6. You can either copy or paste the HTML version of the article or the plain text version. If you’re not that programmer savvy it’s probably best to opt for the text version.

9. Visit car boot sales – This is one of the most under-used tactics in the list. So many people don’t really know the value of what they’re selling. You can pick up lots of bargains using the buy cheap, sell high philosophy.
10. Visit charity shops – One of my clients literally makes a living out of cheap Mens suits from these charity shops. I think it’s because the perceived value is quite low but once listed on eBay with some nice pictures, a killer headline and description. You’re able to ramp the price up and make a nice tidy profit.
