Craigslist Vs. Ebay
Which should you use?
This is not an argument about which one is better. Craigslist and Ebay are both
fantastic in their own right and both have their place in buying an selling.
In this presentation I hope to relay to you the proper time to use each one,
and how you can maximize your profits by making the proper decision.
Supply and Demand
The goal is to make the most amount of profit on your sales.
The way successful people do this in the world is first by
understanding the concept supply and demand.
An item in LOW supply and HIGH demand will go for a higher price
because of its scarcity. Lots of people want it but there is only so
much to go around. This drives the price up.
On Ebay when you post an auction,
the whole country can be your marketplace.
On Craigslist you can only
post to one city at a time.
So you have much less viewers and potential
customers when you post on Craigslist.
Therefore it is wise to sell only popular,
functioning items on Craigslist.
And leave the rare and non-functioning
items you have to sell on Ebay.
This is because though the demand for rare
or non-functioning items is lower on Ebay,
there is still enough demand to sell the item
and make a good profit.
You wouldn't have a good chance of selling
this and making a good profit on craigslist
because the demand is not high enough.
I hope that clears up for you
which will be the best site to
sell your items on!
