    I like to buy and sell baseball, football and basketball cards.

    What would be some ideas/suggestions on maybe how to do this? Ebay is the biggest auction site so I have thought about just doing an Ebay store but not sure if that is best way to go or not.

    Please help forum with me formatting a plan of action.

    Just start somewhere. The only way you're gonna know if it's a right fit for you is if you do it. You can also see what other people are doing in order to give you some ideas, otherwise just start.

    Ebay is a good place to start but you might also want to try Amazon since Amazon has a lot more buyers. Just start with ebay and once you are making good money, you can eventually start make your own website and sell your stuff there. This is because ebay and amazon do charge a fee for selling on their platform.

    Thank you too Muzzamil ! I actually do sell on Ebay, Amazon requires a bit more to sell cards on. You have to be more established I think it is. I have a relative who sells signs and stuff on both and he did recently tell me that hhe makes a
    good bit more selling on Amazon than on Ebay.

    I also like the customer service on Amazon very much. Also, I am in the midst of creating a website. I decided to just go
    with Google I like the feel of security being under the wing of Google. It's also 100% free and I don't need anything big yet as I am just getting my training wheels taken off ...LOL

    thx to you and crisstar for your comments.

    Get out there on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and start by creating your own page. Connect with others who might share an interest in your niche. Like their posts, tweets, etc. Comment on their pages. Join groups, etc. too.

    I can recommend you to create some personalized video which will help you with marketing online. I guess it is one of the most working techniques you can use these days. I have tried it for my eCommerce too and the result is awesome in my case. Try it out as well
