The last thing you would need is having to spend a lot of money on software to help you run your business.
Here are some software toolsthat are absolutely free:
You do not need an expensive program such as Photoshop to improve the photos you take for your auction.
Irfanview is a nifty free program that contains many photo-editing functions.
It is always good to compare your prices against the going market rate.
If you sell on eBay, you probably already know how to look up completed auctions to get an idea of market prices for specific items.
However, you can broaden your search by having Auction Shark searching (current) auctions on eBay, Amazon, Yahoo and Overstock auctions.
This freeware tool lets you enter your eBay auction numbers (or photo URLs) and descriptions on a website and then generates the code for a scrolling marquee that shows thumbnail pictures of your items.
Just paste this code into your auction or website, and customers can see all your other offers scrolling by while they are looking at one of your items.
A freeware WYSIWYG HTML editor that helps you build your own website without having to enter actual HTML code.
The internet is a global market.
Don't forget that there is a whole world out there that does not use inches and feet and ounces and pounds.
This utility lets you convert measurements.
