To date, there are so many sellers on eBay, the world’s most popular online auction site, that it’s honestly difficult to put a number to them. Still, if you are one of them and want to expand your eBay sales and business, a storage unit could be the answer to avoiding home-based inventory nightmares.
When growing an eBay business, the problem is that your home will eventually limit your ability to grow your sales depending upon what you sell. For instance, if you are primarily selling jewelry, you can probably go without extra storage for quite a while. Rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and brooches take up relatively little space. On the other hand, if you’re selling larger items, such as toys, collectibles, furniture or clothes, you could find yourself running out of space fast, especially if your sales start to boom.
Don’t Throw in the Towel
Rather than throwing in the proverbial towel and selling yourself short, a storage unit could be the answer to your eBay business growth issues. With a storage unit, you can not only keep your eBay items in tiptop shape, but you can also keep them organized. If the storage unit is large enough, you could take photos there against a backdrop, and then store the items, as well as any packaging materials, until you make your sale.
You’ll also feel comfortable knowing that:
· Your kids or pets will not damage your eBay items, whether intentionally or accidentally.
· Your merchandise will always be in a safe, easy-to-access location.
· You can start to grow your business. In other words, the sky’s the limit!
Don’t miss your opportunity to get a piece of the eBay pie simply because you have run low on storage options in your home. Take the smart plunge and invest in a storage unit that is close to your home. This will give you the best chance to really see if you can build an eBay presence that will allow you to quit your day job, pay for a child’s college and/or live the lifestyle you have always dreamed of living.
