Back to the ebay challenge

August 9th, 2009 at 06:12 pm

I admit it. I've failed at my own challenge. At the beginning of the year, I posted the ebay challenge, to have average monthly sales of $100. I got off to a strong start as you can see on my sidebar. Then I just dropped off to nothing.

So now I'm determined to get back on track. We leave for vacation on Friday and when I get back, I'm getting back to business. I just figured out that I need to earn $625.27 by the end of the year to have my monthly average be $100. I've got 4 months so that's $156.32/month. That's a challenge, for sure, but I'll do my best. Before, I was usually listing 5 items per week. I'll have to do more than that to reach my goal.

Edited to correct "5 items per month" to "5 items per week".

    I have met my goal some months ($40/month) and others not so much. In July I made $6.89. So far for August I have made $38.73. I think I am pretty close to, or just above, my goal amount; though I haven't calculated my average in awhile.

    Good luck. I'm sure I'm below my goal as well. I will work on it as soon as the kids get back to school. Even if we fall short of our goal, it is better than having no goal!

    Good luck sir! You can do it.

    You officially haven't failed until the year is over-don't get discourage yet. An average was the goal, and you still have 4 months!!! I knew I'd have no sales once gardening season kicked in. But I've sold textbooks this month, so my average monthly sales for the year is 129.07. I'm pretty happy. But I know I'll have no sales in Dec. because of work. So I've got a few months to get busy. I've been stockpiling stuff for ebay so we'll see how it goes. Thanks again Steve for the motivation and a great idea!
