at the moment unless you know what business you want to run and how to run it i would say invest it else where. the money you put into the business could be lost and therefore you will be out of pocket/
If you know that your business idea is feasible and that you have a good market out there then do it but you have to be absolutely sure.
If it was me I would rather invest it in something else where i know it would be safe

It all depends on what you have experience in to be honest but working from home as i do is not easy It's not all cups of coffee and Tv watching!

I need some ideas too to earn a few quid a week, Im more or less earning the same as someone on the dole/sick, only they have other benefits like free school meals for their kids, plus I have to use a load of petrol to get to work. Only dignity is keeping me going!

I'd like to do the ebay thing, but cant think of a niche, or a wholesaler.

You have a shop on their? I have thought about business on eBay but I don't know what I'd sell. Do you actually have all the stock in your possession (or in a lock-up)?

Also, fees are quite high on their, saw that someone had £1000+ in fees :?

Running a home business is a lot harder than most assume and doing it in your spare time means you're stunting the business growth.
Most products have an extremely limited profit margin but you can make a healthy income if you're willing to sell 100's per day.

I used to make upto £2000 a week profit but I worked upto 17 hours a day, 6 days a week but the market became over saturated within months because there's many greedy Ebayers.

What did you sell on eBay? Thinking of things to sell but their seems to be a market for everything on eBay. The only thing I could think of to make myself more noticeable on eBay is cheaper prices, which means less profit.

I'm not afraid of hard work. So basically, you buy a franchise off that website and work in their rules and regulations?

Waiting for the inevitable "buy low, sell high" remark. (Get some new material - its stale.)

True. I will join in also. High class member rep = big business for lower class members.:thumbsup:

I can't believe you actually agreed with me on something publicly without any backhanded comments......until I noticed you called me a lower class member. :cry: :giggle:

P.S You shouldn't of helped BG out, as he was ready to come out with his expertease but now that you've offended him, he'll keep his millions to himself. :-( :lol:

Yeah but don't remind him, which rubbish lines to use but I think he'll go into detail this time....now stop giving him tips! ;-)

I dunno.... take a product that sells well on ebay, make it better, charge a higher price make more money than the rest. You dont have to sell low to beat the competition. If the product you have has added value there is a decent chance (with the correct marketing etc) that it will sell itself simply on that value alone.

Oh and don't rely on ebay for your potential market. Use it as an additional source of revenue, but dont limit yourself to just the one outlet.
#28
For many things on ebay people will but the first thing they see. we found that by exploiting the best match system we could sell well without low prices.
#29
Where does everyone get their Bull s**t from? China? India? Drop Shippers?

I had my own business until recently and I sourced all of my goods from China.

how did you exploit this? what is the best match based on, keywords?

Bestmatch is based off keywords, item specifics and previous sales history.
For some reason they don't take into consideration postage cost so we offer free postage for a month, rank high and then make a nice profit selling at full price being ranked high.

I outsourced my products from Asia but be careful, there are a lot of conmen over there and laws are very laxed to the extent that it's legal for them to con/lie in certain ways or to restart a new business after going bankrupt.

I've been self employed for over 12 years now. As soon as you open a new business you will need to register with mr.taxman. Keep all receipts you need. If you work from home you can claim for part of the gas/elec/mortgage/rent as well as any materials you need for your business to function but you need to keep your books really well organised and receipts for everything are a must. I have to keep mine for 7 yrs backdated. You'll need to pay your own contributions. Best probably to get some GOOD advice before you start up. It's a tricky time to begin any business with money so tight for so many people they are really careful about how and where they part with it. Being based ( mostly) at home has been great for me as often I'm available for the kids and hubby when otherwise I wouldn't have been. Much to think about for you! HTH!

Make some keyrings. Apparently you can earn £1000 per week doing so.

(Imaginary money is ok isn't it?)
