We’ve had a few people emailing us recently wondering what they need to make full use of Salehoo and how they should get started. This blog post then, is your guide to using Salehoo to make a living!
You don’t need that much to join Salehoo. The most important things are:
This could be a website of your own, an eBay account, Yahoo auctions, Amazon auctions, Ubid, your own store, Craig’s List, a local flea market, classified ads in a newspaper or trade magazine…there are plenty of different ways, online or off. You don’t have to choose where you are going to sell your merchandise before you join, but it helps to get it sorted as soon as you can. It’s important to know the market you are selling in because this will alter what sort of products are in demand and how much you can expect to get for them.
But don’t feel you have to limit yourself to just one selling forum – many of our members use more than one, maybe even three or four.
This doesn’t have to be much, in fact $50 is plenty to get you started. However, recognize that the more money you are able to invest, the better prices you will be able to get and therefore, the greater your profit margins. For that reason, being able to spend $500-$2,000+ is ideal, but you can take your time working towards this.
If you don’t have much money to spend, then that’s okay. What you need to do instead is put as much time as you can into your business. If you can replace money with time, you’ll do just as well in the end. Problems start though when new members don’t have either time or money. It’s not an uncommon conundrum! The world being the way it is, it’s hard to find much time in a busy schedule. Yet, even so, we encourage you to try your very hardest to squeeze as much time as you can into your business. Start off with just half an hour a day and try to increase that amount as soon as you can. Remember: If you are really determined to make a success of this, you will. And we are here to help!
Once you have joined Salehoo, follow these simple steps to getting started:
