Make Sky High Profits with eBay Online Auctions

skyhigh-banner.jpg

The other day I talked about a tracking program that would help you make money through PPC affiliate campaigns. That’s one way to make money online. Another avenue that you can try is selling stuff on eBay and other popular online auction sites. Today’s review focuses on the upcoming launch of Sky High Auctions, set to be one of the premiere online courses in how to make money from eBay.

Learn From eBay PowerSellers

You wouldn’t go to your dentist for car advice, right? Well, the same is true with making money online. There are countless online courses that claim to teach you secrets to eBay domination, but many of these are designed and run by people who have never made a dime on the auction site. By contrast, the online eBay course created by Sky High Auctions pulls on a network of 15 PowerSellers, including Sky High’s own Jeremy Huber.

The lessons that you’ll learn from these eBay experts are surely more valuable than guys who only use the auction site to get rid of junk lying around the house. PowerSellers, by contrast, “rank among the most successful sellers on eBay in terms of sales and customer satisfaction.” In order to get this distinction, sellers must have consistent sales volume, 98% total positive feedback, and a detailed seller rating of 4.5 or higher in all four DSRs (item description, communication, shipping time, and shipping charges). More information can be found on eBay.

More Than Just An E-Book

The Sky High Auctions program is billed as an online course. This is because you get much more than a single e-book out of the deal. We were granted a sneak peek of the member’s area and although the official launch is still nearly three weeks away, they’ve already stocked the back end with tons of useful information.

These are full lessons and there are lots of them. At the time of this review, 15 beginners lessons have been posted, as well as over 20 intermediate lessons. To give you an idea of what to expect, here are some of the lesson titles.

  • Registering with eBay: What You MUST Know Before You Sell
  • How to Find Niche Markets & Profitable Stuff to Sell
  • How to Write Knock-out Titles & Descriptions
  • 5 Minute Photo Editing
  • Shipping Secrets of the Powersellers
  • Expand Your Horizons: Becoming a Trading Assistant
  • Trade Shows for Powerful Product Sourcing
  • Moving Beyond eBay: Other Places to Sell Online

And these lessons are very, very lengthy. In addition to videos, screenshots, and other visual aids, Lesson 5 (What’s Your Item Really Worth?) was over 4000 words long. All lessons are laid out like a textbook, meaning you get an overview in the beginning, sub-sections throughout, and a summary at the end. It’s really like going to eBay school.

Here’s a brief snippet from Lesson 5, reminding sellers than they too can control demand:

It’s important to consider this when selling on eBay. In the past, sellers have made the mistake of flooding the market with items out of a desire to get as many sales as possible, thereby shooting themselves in the foot, reducing the market price for good and ruining a niche for everyone.

Bonus Resources

It’s not like Sky High Auctions is just going to send you out to the eBay wolves, even if they’re going to arm you with a bountiful supply of lessons and learnings. Above and beyond these offerings, they’ve also got some bonus resources like the Blue Auction Template pictured below. There’s also a green and tan variant. As time goes on, they may add more stuff.

Moreover, they have something called the Sky High Vault where users can get extra videos and lessons for free. These include e-products like “Email Promos Exposed”, “Secrets Of Elite Marketers”, and “Giant Package of 106 Niche Products with Master Resell Rights”.

Launch Day Special

Right now, the Sky High Auctions main page redirects to the company blog. I’m not a fan of the big section that follows each post, containing a signature, an author image and info, a P.S., and the full comment form. They could easily stand to remove at least the comment form, because it’s so redudant.

That said, these “fat endings” remind visitors that if they sign up to the launch notification list, they will receive an extra $497 worth of bonuses on launch day, plus they will get access 1 hour before anyone else. The first 500 copies sold will go for $167 and then the price rises to $267. Based on my rough calculation, the countdown on the main page points toward a March 6 launch.

In the meantime, check out the first free video to get a taste of what Sky High Auctions has to offer.

    I can`t wait for croatia to be accepted as one of the paypal send withdraw receive countries.. 😥 Great post Michael!

      I wouldn’t know what it would be like without paypal 🙂 Like the $1500 giveaway I’m running is based on paypal payments. Otherwise it’s much more hassle to do it since I would have to mail out checks or something.

        “I wouldn’t know what it would be like without paypal”
        lucky you.. the problem is that an average german buys more products online in one month than whole my country.. hope this situation is going to change..

  2. Jim Karter says:

    eBay selling has always remained mystery to me. I have never sold anything in my life on eBay. Let me have a look at the site.

    1. Wow, we found you, the last person on earth who hasn’t sold something on eBay.

      1. He isn’t the last.. 🙄

        1. My non “blog” sites find a few a day who’ve never signed up before, how there is anyone left is true mystery 🙂

          A question about this review, I was approved into the new eBay merchant marketplace referral program with it’s 75.00 payouts, does this site cover that too? I mean, will it teach everyone that only powerseller accounts have access to the marketplace vendor liquidation service?

          It’s HARD for a regular eBay seller to compete with a power seller that gets mass volumes of items at discount directly from eBay just for having a power account.

          1. Oh well, usually things I don’t use anymore (broken or not) go all to Caritas or i sell them to people I know. Tho have used eBay to buy products (quiet often)

  3. Jake Cohen says:

    Interesting site. I might check it out! :mrgreen:

  4. David says:

    Jim,

    I suggest you look into taking a class with an eBay Education Specialist. These are people who are trained by eBay, certified via a test and use the official courseware. This way you can be taught the basics practically one on one at a fraction of the cost for this reviewed course. I am a Powerseller, Education Specialist and Trading Assistant. I have also tried many courses like this and most give little value. You can also check out the ebay discussion boards for great info on selling. Good Luck.

  5. Simon Lau says:

    Is it just me or does 267 dollars seems like a lot? Unless you plan on doing this as a business, you’d have to sell a fair bit of stuff to make your money back. Everything I’ve ever sold was because it was junk sitting around, if I were to make 10 extra dollars from these methods I’d have to put up another 27 auctions before I break even!

    1. carl says:

      I think the only person this will make money for is the person who was paid to do this review.

      1. TheQuickBuck says:

        I completely agree. I’m not sure where the value in a product like this lies. With that said, based on the sheer size of John’s readership, I’m sure the advertiser will make at least enough to cover the cost of this review.

        1. RacerX says:

          Five at “Introduction Price” or three at “Full Pop” this software has 80+ points at leat even with developement. That being said…It is still America. If you can NET (post S/H, fee and original cost) enough to pay for this in 90 days you should do it.

    2. Michael Kwan says:

      Like I said in the review, this course isn’t really geared toward casual sellers who get rid of their junk online; it’s geared toward people who want to make a decent income by selling stuff on eBay.

      1. Simon Lau says:

        Not to get into a debate or anything on what I think and what you think when you wrote the review, but from my end, the one sentence that makes me feel it wasn’t catered towards power sellers is how I read this line:
        “The lessons that you’ll learn from these eBay experts are surely more valuable than guys who only use the auction site to get rid of junk lying around the house.”

        1. Michael Kwan says:

          I guess my syntax was a little off there. What I meant is that these lessons from PowerSellers are more valuable than lessons you’d learn from casual sellers.

          1. Simon Lau says:

            After reading your first comment, I assumed that was what you were referring to. It kept sounding like you wanted to say the lessons are more applicable to budding ebay stores than the casual sellers. Either way, great detailed review Michael.

  6. Ebay is the easiest way to your first 1000 dollars online.
    And I’m liking the new logo John!

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      I didn’t notice the new logo until you pointed it out. When you did though, I noticed that the links above it (Home, About, Advertise, etc.) are all screwed up. Am I the only one who doesn’t see them until you move the mouse over them?

      1. I’m liking the logo. And the links are working fine for me.

      2. The links work fine for me.
        Btw Matt, have you finished with Matt Huggins dot Com? I’d be interested in purchasing it.
        Let me know.

    2. How long would that take? 😀

  7. Robert says:

    Ebay is such a valuable method for making money. It simply takes time and effort to learn how to do it. The opportunities there are endless. Now, Sky High Auctions provides the crash course and the tools necessary for people to succeed on Ebay. I can’t wait to check this out.

  8. Get a $5 eBay For Dummies book.
    ps. Their feedburner stats… seems fishy 😯

    The hand holding sites get my nod.

  10. Ubuntube.net says:

    What about using this with BANS?

  11. I think one of the most important things is to be knowledgeable about your product and open top notch customer support. The listing doesn’t have to be super snazzy, but you have to at least properly describe your item and avoid spelling mistakes. I think it’s a big turnoff as a buyer, is to see extremely poor language usage in a listing. That’s almost as bad as a low feedback rating to me. It makes me believe that you don’t care about the item, and probably don’t care about me as a buyer, because you don’t care enough to run spell check.

  12. Mike Huang says:

    Hmm, seems like this site might not be honest. It seems like when this review was written, the site supposedly had around 800+ subscribers, but now it is over 2,000…and his traffic doesn’t look too good on Alexa either. I’m out.

    -Mike

    1. I just posted proof on this above. It showed over 20k subscribers when I checked. SCAM!

  13. Another great review Micheal 🙂
    It looks an interesting product, if I were an ebay seller I probably would be interested in this service.

  14. Brian Zafron says:

    I don’t know about y’all, but I’d rather give away my first born than lose paypal. And I don’t even have first born.

  15. Will says:

    meh this article was so so… not really an ebay kind of guy.

  16. ebay or any such auction sales or amazone.com everything are good but for a small blogger cannot attain much more out of it. If they have only a mass traffic to their site and also general visiotors can attain a good income from it. Others are just do meaningless effort.

  17. Site looks like it’s going to be awesome! Ebay can be a pretty good business to get into.
