What4 Boxes and SWOT
: (A date and time has not been chosen yet.)

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

I talked about this on eBay Radio. SWOT stands for Strengths – Weaknesses – Opportunities – Threats. It’s a framework and process to prioritize and focus on what you need to do to grow your eBay business. If you can draw four boxes, you can do it! (Just determining interest in the topic right now.)

Announcing a new Meetup for eBay Sellers of the Bay Area!

What“Dish” Your Listing & Seller Roundtable Discussion
: Thursday, June 30, 2011 7:00 PM

Where: Silicon Valley Pad
1370 Willow Road 2nd Floor
Menlo Park, CA 94025
650 276 0536

If you’re a fan of eBay Radio, you know about the “Dish Your Listing” segment where Griff critiques listings. We like this segment so much that we’re shamelessly adopting it for our next Meetup! Join us as we select real eBay listings and review them, all in the name of fun and learning. It’s always helpful to see listings through another set of eyes. If you’re interested in having your listing reviewed for real-time feedback, let us know by emailing the organizers.

The rest of the program will be a roundtable discussion on select seller topics such as niche selling, recordkeeping systems, and inventory management. RSVP now to reserve your spot, as space is limited.

Food and drink will be provided. Looking forward to seeing you on June 30!

Ebay Sellers of the Bay AreaHi everyone!

Do you ever wonder how to optimize your listings for eBay’s Best Match algorithm, so that your listings appear higher in search results?

Our February Meetup will feature a member of eBay’s Best Match team, who will join us for a presentation and interactive discussion on all things Best Match. Bring your questions and comments. As always, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet and greet members of our ever-growing group — 213 and counting!

Once again, we’re meeting at the Sonoma Chicken Coop in San Jose near the SJC airport. We’ll meet either downstairs or upstairs: look for our Meetup signs when you arrive.
