Big Ideas About Data Analysis: What Sells On eBay?

By Derrick Brown (follow on Twitter @dbrowndbrown)


What Sells On eBay?


I have sold products on eBay since 1998. It is a serious hobby!

I sell what I like. I like books, computers, software, cell phones, jewelry (watches & rings), tools, and other consumer electronic devices (like video cameras.

For years, I have searched for a simple market research app that would easily let me determine what sells best on eBay.

I found it today! It is called MarkSight Research Tools Application.

This browser-based app has a free version - which allows you to research eBay completed listings during the past 7 days, and see information on sold items.

For example, I have recently discovered Roku 2 XD Internet streaming devices, and have bought several for my home. Here is how they have sold for the last 7 days ...



Here is a chart of the same info (which lets me identify sales of the latest Roku 2 XD model (Model 3050x - 2 of which sold for average & median prices of $50.99)) ...



The app also has a "Gold" version - which provides you with eBay's top sell-through (defined as # sold items / # completed items) item lists. No need to guess anymore about which items sell best!

The BIG Picture: On Arguing With Fools ...



Sometimes you "let 'em know". Sometimes you "let it go".

The BIG Picture: Malcolm & Martin (not Malcolm vs. Martin)


Many of us believe that Malcolm X and MLK were polar opposites destined to collide - and to never collaborate.
A closer look reveals that they were diametrically opposed points on the same circle - who both recognized that the *circle* was more important than their *points*.
Oh, what might have been if they just talked
Their trajectories seemed to be bringing them to common ground.
Civil discourse - especially between dissenters - promotes growth.
Finishing school starts your education.

Dear Hannah: Purpose Is More Important Than Ambition (Part 2)


 By Derrick Brown (follow on Twitter @dbrowndbrown)

 

Dear Hannah,

Purpose is more important than ambition.

Do not mistake activity for achievement.

Sometimes less is more.

Make a living through your giving.

Learn to turn two into four.

Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement.


Love,

Daddy
