Review of Julia Wilkinson's eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks
Julia Wilkerson wrote an ebook called What Sells on eBay a few years ago. I liked her first book, and now she has a new printed book out called eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks.
Anyway, when eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks came out, Julia sent me an autographed copy of her new book for my birthday. Thanks Julia.
I have done over 12,000 eBay auctions and I usually learn something new from every book I read. Sometimes the books are just refreshers and remind me of things I should be doing. Sometimes they are eye openers, introducing new concepts I hadn't seen before.
In either case reading books is important because no matter how much you know, it is always possible to learn more and improve your results.
Julia Wilkinson's eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks is a simple guide. There was nothing earth shattering in there, but it covers a lot of material in an easy to read format.
As the title suggests the book covers 100 different tips for buying and selling on eBay. There are 42 buying tips and 58 selling tips. Each of these is covered in great detail with pictures of the eBay screens. The book walks you through each task using an easy to follow step by step approach.
If you are a visual learner, eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks is perfect for you. It's also well laid out so you can look up things quickly.
For example if you are interested in finding out more about eBay's Anything Points (Julia's tip 38) Anything Points is eBay's loyalty program. Points are like airline miles you earn with some credit cards. In fact, you can convert airline miles to eBay points and then use the points to pay for purchases on eBay.
One note. Julia explains how to edit images with Adobe Photoshop. This is not the best way to edit images. Photoshop is expensive, slow to use, and extremely complicated. See How To Add Free Pictures To eBay Auctions for information on cheap, easy to use photo programs.
If you are a new eBay user this book will become a well thumbed reference. eBay Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks is well worth adding to your library. You can get the book on Amazon for a little as $5.70
