Business selling and marketing continue to become more
sophisticated with the passing of time.  To get the most out of the
hours that you put into running an eBay business (or any other
business), you must use every resources and technique available to
you to increase sales and revenue.  Instant upsell techniques are
hugely underutilized on eBay.  Read on to learn more about how this
powerful technique can increase your revenue many times over.
Instant Upselling involves making a final sales pitch just before
or immediately after a shopper makes their final purchase from you.
 This technique takes advantage of impulse and encourages the
consumer to make a purchase without putting too much thought into
what they are buying.  Upselling reaches the consumer at the most
convenient time; at the checkout counter where they already have
their wallet open and they have already made a decision to buy.
Your upsell offer makes an additional purchase convenient for them.

Once a buyer has agreed to buy an item from you, they go through
the checkout process, just as if they were in a supermarket.  This
stage of shopping is the perfect time to encourage consumers to
throw a few more items into the shopping basket.  Think of the
chewing gum rack at the supermarket checkout or the popular
magazines that always grab your attention as you are about to pay.
More often than not, the consumer will say, “oh, why not”?  Instant
upselling appeals to ‘why nots’ in the exact same way. You can
offer an upgrade as an Instant Upsell or you can sell accessories
and other items that are related to the item being purchased. 

On the internet you can also take this a step further with “after
payment instant upsell”. In other words, you can do a second upsell
after the customer pays. Most Marketers don’t do this leaving big
money on the table. What you can do on ebay is to send an email to
the customer immediately after their initial payment with a Related
offer they cannot resist.

Most marketers don’t do the secondary instant upsell on ebay,
because they either dont know about it, or even if they do, they
have no idea how to do it, since eBay controls the checkout
process. Pay attention while I reveal to you how this can be done.
To properly implement a feature such as this, you will need the
help of some sophisticated software.  You will need software that
allows you to associate related items and automatically offer them
to your customers instantly after their payment.

Tools.  Grab your Copy from the following url:

In addition to good software that can be used on eBay, make sure
that you offer your upsell item with the most compelling,
well-written email copy. With a well-implemented upselling software
system you can double or even triple the amount of your average
sale.  This possibility is too good to pass up.

Take advantage of this underutilized technique and begin to make
the most of every resource and technique available to you as an
eBay vendor. Remember, there is no other way to do this, besides a
specialized system. Ebay doesnt offer you this. In fact, eBay will
return Your customer to other ebay auctions as an upsell, because
they know the value of this strategy. Get your own instant upsell
system today.

was invited to San Antonio, Texas to matermind with 11 other
List Building Experts on how to build an optin List of 100,000

will be released to the public within the next few days.

Video products are being bought and sold online
with increasing popularity. As bandwidth continues
to increase, the possibilities and the ways that
the Internet can be used for commerce also widen.
Most of the various types of media have been
digitalized and are now available for download
via the Internet in some way.

Things move very quickly on the Internet and in
technology in general. Whereas, in the past,
a music file was considered to be a considerably
large download, these days, their size is quite
insignificant. Even large video files are
downloaded from the Internet on a regular basis.

Selling video products on eBay can be quite a lucrative
endeavor. Since videos are digital information and
can be handled as instant downloads, you can pretty
much run an eBay business selling videos and video
products on autopilot. This means that you have the
option of simply listing your video products for sale
on eBay, making use of software that allows customers
to instantly download your videos after making a
payment, to send automated, personalized email messages
to your customers and not have to worry about the
processing of video sales once items are listed.

If you make the decision to allow your customers to
download video files instantly upon payment, make the
information on your products as detailed and clear as
possible; answer all of their questions before they ask them.
Also, make it clear in your listing that the consumer
will be free to download the product immediately after
paying. For the most part, eBay customers will
expect to see a description of the video file, a
copy of the promotional cover if it is a commercial
video and the price of the video. All of this
information can be entered on eBay when you first
list the item. You can also consider putting up
a short sample of the video (ebay supports flash Video)

To allow the instant download of video files you will
have to give considerable thought to the way that you
offer this feature. In the past, eBay vendors might
have manually emailed download links to customers upon payment.
This option very quickly becomes tedious, especially as sales
increase. After all, it requires the vendor to be online
at all times to provide prompt service. Or it requires the
customer to wait until the next time that the vendor
is online before they can gain access to the file they have purchased.
Also Videos are still quite large to be sent as attachments.

Although a delayed response was an acceptable
option in the past, the expectations of the
average, online shopper increases at a
parallel rate to advancements in Internet technology.
These days, eBay shoppers expect to be able to
access their digital products instantly. You, the
digital vendor must keep up to date with your technology.
