Summer is here! At least it is for us. My oldest finished up school last week, so we’re easing into our summer routine. Or, trying to figure out what it will be.
eBay-ness was better for me in May than April, but still not as good as I would have liked. The problem, however, rested squarely on my shoulders. I barely made it half way to my listing goal in May. It was kind of sad. A few reasons (participated in a consignment sale, and yet another flu bug made its way through our house!, etc.) And maybe just a general lack of motivation. My lowest listing month in a l-o-n-g time. But, June will be different. Even though I didn’t make my listing goal last month, I am upping it this month, to 200. I am going to shoot for 10 new listings daily Mon-Fri. Can I do it? I’m not really sure. But, I figure if I aim high, even if I miss, I’m better off than I was.
This was an instance where I couldn’t find an exact same item listed, so I waffled between listing high and waiting or listing lower and hoping for a quick flip. I went for the quick flip, and quick it was!
