Building your eBay DropShip Business is extremely time-consuming like building any other business from scratch, except you have a built-in selling platform and basically no or very little startup costs.
Just about everything is labor-intensive, from researching good suppliers and quality products, pricing, listing, tracking price increases, selling, ordering, managing returns to accounting and intensifies with inventory management as your business grows.
Freedom to Choose
The last thing you want is to become a slave to your business or worse yet always having to choose between enjoying quality time with family or friends or processing a difficult returns, especially during the Holiday Season.
When I reached this point of desperation, struggling with managing my business in the busiest selling season of the year or enjoying the holidays with friends and family, it became the breaking point where something had to give.
Can I afford it?
While coaching a few high-volume Top-Rated eBay Power Sellers, I realized they all had 1 or 2 virtual assistants to manage the laborious time-consuming "cookie-cutter" tasks to add more inventory while freeing up more time to better manage their business. So I knew, if I wanted to get off this merry-go-round, my next step was to find out if I could afford the cost of hiring a Virtual Assistant and would my time be more taxing in training for them to learn exactly how I want those tasks done.
When I learned I could hire a Virtual Assistant paying $3-$5/hour, I quickly started calculating my costs into my profit margins...surprisingly I discovered if I assigned a VA to perform the most time-consuming task of listing products (1-hour per listing) and incorporate that cost per hour into my profit margin, it would not only increase my inventory production during the highest buying season of the year (more sales) but also free up my time to focus on less time consuming tasks and enjoy more time with my family and friends such as:
I wanted to find a Virtual Assistant that had the skills and knowledge to list products on eBay, work efficiently and consistently. I spent hours with setting up rigorous interview process with many applicants until I found one with communication skills, I could not ignore.
Training a Virtual Assistant
At first I started out trying to train by creating pdf documents as a guide on how I wanted listings to be built, but it wasn't long before I realized this process was becoming more time-consuming than I originally thought. So I started producing how-to videos on every step in listing a product. I soon realized, that if anything should happen where I needed to add another or replace a VA, I can simply train by providing the how to videos.
