Hi there, in this video, you’re going to discover my quick money blueprint on what I like to call magical auctions. Now, this blueprint alone can make you several thousand dollars on a monthly basis with the method you’re about to discover. Now, unlike the other quick money blueprints I have in the club, this isn’t a simple one, two, three step process, it can be a very minimal amount of steps but the way that I want to outline the blueprint as you can see here is just can’t be covered in three steps. So let’s just go ahead and get started with the introduction and as we get through each of these items, it’s going to become more and more clearer on what it is you can do.
So with the introduction, what you’ll be doing is selling Supernatural products on eBay. Now, if this is at all against your religion or if you just don’t feel comfortable doing anything like this, this may not be for you but I would still like you to stay and watch this blueprint, because it could be a bit entertaining and you will just be blown away on how much money can be made online by selling Supernatural products.
Now, this is one of the largest and on top markets that you can ever enter online and allow the items that you can sell, there are crystals, rings, charmed, spells and even psychic advice believe it or not and you can tap into people’s dreams and that’s literally going to allow you to be their dream maker. And Supernatural products are on the metaphysical section on eBay, which I’ll show you in a moment and the return on the investment is substantial because you can buy all these items for literally a few dollars and some of them are even like a quarter and 50 cents or under a dollar and you can be selling them on an average of $50.00 to $90.00 per item.
Now, there are no issues selling metaphysical items on eBay because it’s all based on belief and you’ll see that—on eBay alone is just a massive category and addition to being on eBay, if you just go on to any local bookstore or a video store, there’s just a whole section on Supernatural. So that is the introduction.
Now, the second item I would like to cover is sourcing because now that you understand the basics, you probably want to wonder, “Okay, where in the heck are you going to get Supernatural items,” right? Well, for sourcing, the best thing I would like to stress is the focus on rings, crystals and emblems and the reason for this is that it’s very easy to find antique dealers, jewelers and specialty shops, and you can even go to local fair and flea markets and online wholesalers and even eBay itself and you can get 40 plus rings and necklaces for under $50.00 simply by looking and using search terms like costume jewelry.
Now, if you’re buying on eBay, you don’t want to buy wholesale items on the same account that you’re trying to sell them on as a magical auction and you’ll see why in a moment. And when you’re listings auctions, you always want to be imaginative on what you’re choosing to actually buy and you want to keep a diverse set of products just to your name. So think about innovation with an open mind. So that’s sourcing. And as you can see as I’m going through this blueprint, this is more of like a learning session at the moment and then literally, if you want to turn this into a three-step process, step one is going to be setting up an eBay account, step two is going to be buying the products, and step three is going to be selling the products. I mean there’s not any room left for question. I just want to make sure I get through all the items for you to understand.
So next is getting started. And with getting started, you want to set up an eBay account or you want to buy or not buy, you want to set up two of them depending on your sourcing method. So if you want to buy all the stuff on eBay and you want to do it under one account, because that’s going to be like your buyer’s account, because you don’t want people to see that you’re buying costume jewelry for like 40 items for $50.00, you can turn around and putting this magical history behind this ring and then turning around and trying to sell it. So that will definitely damage your business. So you want to set up two accounts and you can use the same name, you can use the same PayPal email and all of that if you like for setting up two accounts.
Second, you want to choose a magical name that reflects exactly what you’re going to sell, because let’s say you want to position yourself to be in authority on eBay for selling magical products, well, if your name is like web designer John, when you’re trying to sell magical ring and you’re up against to all these other people and they’re trying to sell magical rings in their names or like Warlock729 or WitchcraftMary, people are probably going to be buying from someone with a name that’s more magical and reflects the item that they’re selling. This kind of information is going to go with all the other businesses out there, like if you’re going to create an eBay account to buy and sell websites which is another quick money blueprint, I’ll show you later in the club, you would have a name that would be something like Web Design Jerry or something like that. So choosing a magical name is important.
Three, you want to spend time writing up a nice about me page with a magical bio and I’ll show you some examples to see what other people have and then that way, you can model after them. So that’s getting started.
Now, the next is psychology and this is a bit longer of the section because obviously all you want to understand out to be successful with this is, it’s all in the psychology and you can see that the other items that I’m going to discuss here in a moment, too. But let’s go ahead and drop down psychology and you can see, you have to motivate people to get them to have to have your product. If you don’t motivate them and give them just a need to buy, they’re not going to want to buy your product. So they’ll make more sense in a minute.
And, next is dreams and beliefs are always invaluable, unlike iPods, purses and electronics, so this isn’t like trying to sell an iPod or trying to sell a laptop on eBay where you know what the price is going to turn out to be. Sometimes I’ve listed auctions on eBay and I’ve had a ring that I bought for $295.00 on an eBay auction, it was just like a costume jewelry ring and it turned around and sold for $1100.00, just because of the dream that I painted for everybody in and that just started the bidding work.
Next is the key to the goldmine here is to be creative and tap into a buyer’s mindset, because if you don’t paint the picture that they want to have painted, you’re not really in the position for them to really buy your product.
Next is you want to take high quality images of the product with proper lightning and a clean background. And this is for example if you’re going to be selling rings or jewelry that has like a dark past using a black background is going to be better than using a white background and using a white background if you’re giving like inspiration or it’s good for wealth or clarity or something like that. You’ll see, I’m going to show you live examples on eBay about all of these in a moment.
Next is you can use a bit of photo enhancement if you have the skills to do so and what that means is like you can actually put quite cool little flames and stuff and smoke around the ring and say that this is what it’s doing spiritually and it’s just something to help you out with your selling and you’ll examples in a second.
Next is you want to experiment to figure out what works best for your product. For instance, different color backgrounds, would it be best setting it on like an old wooden chest or would it be better setting it on a black background, that’s the stuff you will experiment as you go on. And if you don’t know how to do image alterations with like Photoshop or any kind of image utilities, you can always outsource your image creation on places like elance.com.
Next is you want to use interesting and dynamic stories that are imaginative and wild because if you don’t have wild and really cool stories behind your ring or behind your item that you’re trying to sell, it’s not really any different than any old ring that someone could just buy from any antique shop. Again, you’re the dream maker, you’re selling the dreams to the dreamers.
Next is you can add in characters like princesses, magicians, warlocks, witches, demons et cetera. At this point of this blueprint, you’re probably thinking, “What in the heck is going on?” This isn’t like anything else that’s being talked about on the internet and there’s a reason for that. This is a very, very niche market but it’s a market on the internet where you can just extract an absolute fortune out of if you dedicate your time and—just your time and creativity into it and it can be a lot of fun.
So next is explain how the energy of the item can help buyers happen to their mindset because people buy stuff like this especially jewelry because they’re wearing it because they want to have a positive energy. If you ever remember, if you’ve ever heard or seen, read the book or saw the movie, The Secret, it’s all about a positive energy and it’s the law of attraction and they even have these little items that they try to sell you, like these little pebbles like little rocks with an S on it. They try to sell you like a genie lamp and they tell you if you keep it by your side and on your desk, it’s going to give you a positive energy and it’s going to unlock the power of the secret. That’s the exact same thing here. It’s all on the psychology and actually painting the dream for the dreamer.
Next is the most popular top selling storylines are things that are based around sexual energy, love, romance, fame, wealth, luck, fortune, health, psychic energy, focus and even clarity and you can use exotic names for the headlines, title and description of the item and you’ll see in a moment, and then dreams that give the buyer solution to their problem and the power of control is going to be the most—
