First of all, I want to thank you for viewing my post.
I am an Ebay Powerseller, I am on my way to making $50k this year alone. I, as well as others, pay an Ebay employees salary each week in fees. I was looking to reduce my fees by selling on other sites as well. I have sold a few here and there and I know it will never replace my income from selling on Ebay.
I purchased the software for an auction site about 3 years ago, built and ran a site with no success. Mostly because I expected people just to know who and where I was. Never a good thing.
This time, I have put a lot more thought into what I want and what people are looking for. The site is just over a month old and I have had 647 unique visits and 857,918 hits. This is due to posting in forums and link exchanges.
What I am looking for is your input. I already know there are tons of new auction sites out there that are doing the same thing, so I really do not need to hear that. :) What I do want is for you to tell me your first impression of the sites look and feel.
Secondly, I am looking for others who have an interest in web design, marketing and a strategic mind set to provide a quality service.
The main purpose of this site is to allow people to test the waters, create an additional income and become part of a community. Also, I have added a few RSS feeds, one of which is from SUN which I read daily myself. Giving people the resources they need or are looking for to create a business for themselves.
I could go on and on, but for now I will ask that you express your thoughts. Even negative posts are helpful as they allow me understand what others think and will give me information to use.
So let me know what you think and go ahead and ask questions.
