Online Marketing/Your Research Method


Hello Nat

I'm looking to buy small desirable items from other sellers on craigslist and re-sell them for a profit on Ebay or Amazon.

How do you do your own research to see what that item last sold for online before you buy it from the seller or wholesaler?



Good to hear from you again.

Let me get this straight. You want to research what small desirable items have sold on Amazon or EBay so you can then buy items like that from sellers on Craigslist and then sell them on Amazon or EBay and make a profit?

Sounds like an interesting venture.

I've only sold books on Amazon and some golf clubs on EBay but seem to remember that they offer search tools on both these sites to see the selling history of items.

When you say small desirable items are you talking about small in price or small in size?

The other route to go might be Alibaba.

Once you've determined a market that has potential you can get an unending source of product from this website dealing directly from the manufacturers in China.

I hope this helps a little bit.

Mostly curious about "small desirable items" and if you could answer that for me.
