Open phones, Contact Us emails and more: Lee gave Griff her latest Advice for the Entrepreneur tip regarding the 80/20 rule and reminded store subscribers to use their Q1 coupon for eBay-branded shipping supplies (http://www.ebay.com/supplies). Lee also shared “7 Reasons You Need a Mentor” from Entrepreneur.com along with news about eBay teaming up with Aeropost.com and eBay Inc.’s recent Pitch Tank.
Griff and Lee read current events from the eBay Radio Seller Events Calendar, located under Seller Resources in the eBay Radio archives. To submit your sellers group meetup or other event, go to eBayRadio.com; click on “Past Episodes” in the right-hand sidebar; then click on “Submit an Event” in the upper right-hand corner of any archives page.
Every now and then I have to remind myself of the 80/20 rule. We used it in radio sales to mean that 20% of the sales staff bring in 80% of the sales. For eBay sellers, it means that 20% of your efforts create 80% of your sales. So identify that 20%, write down a list of what comprises it and make these efforts your biggest priority.
