I was reading a blog earlier today that mentioned the possibility of attending an eBay Meet-Up group. The idea intrigued me, and I just looked up eBay Meet-Up groups to see if there are any in my area. Not only is there one, but the group is holding a meeting in a couple weeks. About this:
Amazon, FBA, Books and Beyond /Basics of Selling on Amazon
I have long wondered about selling on Amazon, but have yet to venture into it. Goodness knows, eBay keeps me busy enough all on its own. I feel like I don’t have the time to figure out the Amazon ropes, but if someone wants to take an hour and a half and explain it all to me? Sign me up!
Also, kind-of-but-not-really-coincidentally, the meeting is taking place where I work. I am a (since having kids, super part-time) librarian, and the library where I work rents out meeting rooms. It is in one of those meeting rooms that the meet-up will take place. I won’t even have to venture out of my comfort zone to attend.
I am feeling quite excited at the prospect of attending this meeting, and yet also a little wary. I love the online eBay community, network of blogs, and all of the “friends” I have made. And while in some ways it would be wonderful to experience that in person, in others – well, honestly, maybe I am afraid of the competition. It’s different sharing all of your secrets and BOLOs with people who might actually beat you to a yard sale!
Anybody have any experience with an eBay Meet-Up group, or the like?
