Since Ebay migrated it's affiliate program to it's own server it has gone from strength to strength, Commission Junction had a great tracker but then so has the ebay affiliate partner network now, you are able to track your clicks and sales from within your affiliate account, which is pretty useful.
But have you ever wondered that ebay is a marketing tool in it's own right?
I have quite often thought about sites like Ebay and even Amazon, they provide hot best seller lists and popular searches based on daily results and are always showing what is the top selling items at any given time, this is valuable information for the marketer, as they are able to determine what types of product items are coverting well and cash in on it.
Typically ebay sellers are the ones who are more in tune with what's a best seller, current trends and fashions in online sales play a huge part in what people actually buy, just think about the ads you see on tv, and even the billboards in town, these all play there small parts in the ad marketing activities of commercial companies who are heavily sponsored to do so.
Ebay marketing tactics can be what you may need to succeed online in the world of Ebay marketing, this is in fact a neccessary way of learning the way of ebaying, like any marketing it takes time to find something you are good at, something that sets you apart from anyone else.
Once you find this special something, it's time to start your ebay business, buying and selling is the name of the game and it's finding bargains that you can profit from and also locating hot trends in the many different niche markets online and indeed offline.
