Auctions

Hi,

Most of you already know that I currently sell Gopeds over the internet - even though this is a successful business, I feel that I need something new to focus on, as selling Gopeds can be very restricting.

I was thinking about selling a service etc? Does anyone have any possible ideas?

I was also thinking on making a prestige auction site? Do you think this has potential - my only major concern is that no-one can compete with Ebay!

Thanks,

(If anyone has an idea/site to sell - PM me and I might be interested)

If you decide to go with an auction site, good luck. I've found that to be really tough to get people interested in. Mostly, I believe, because what can you possibly offer that Ebay can't? Maybe if you had a niche?

As for other service ideas, why not think about script-based services for those who can't or don't want to install and run them themselves. While I was learning to use perl and php, I used a company called Constant Contact that is basically a mailing list manager and I paid $10 mo.

With so many people creating sites with Homestead and whatnot, charging a low fee for customizable, useful services such as list managers, gift reminders, ect might prove prosperous.

yea i totally agree with what you're saying - however i don't have enough skills/experience to make good scripts!
There are also soo many free scripts on the internet today and so I think that the market for people to pay for scripts is falling.

Anymore ideas?

For an auction you need a specified minimum amount of users, how do you plan on getting these minimum amount of users who are willing to bid?

I'll join this auction gladly ... if no one else does! - meaning i get each bid at the starting and ending price of $1
