Most business people realize that the real goal of Social Media Marketing is to create additional sales revenue over the Web. Offering current and potential customers compelling content leading them to an order page is the ideal way to grow sales. “Will you be paying by P.O. or credit card?” Don’t you agree that this is a very mechanical approach, which does very little to build any degree of customer loyalty and almost nothing to help you earn long-term clients?
The key to success in the card business is again to theme the cards to an interest that you identified. For instance, the Library of Congress has a great Upper Deck baseball cards price guide from around 1900 online.

Lots of folks who like baseball play cards and would be thrilled to have such a unique pack of cards to enjoy while playing their game.
The answer to what are the best selling items on eBay, personally to me is everything and anything. Why is Vintage baseball cards that so you may ask? The answer simply lies in the individual.

If you have a large site, it should flow and be easy to navigate. The site should be uncluttered and professional looking. Stay away from big gaudy ads like banner ads. Their day has passed. Most people have become desensitized by them and the ad will most likely go unnoticed anyway.
Keyword research is very important. Why waste time on writing articles, placing ads, or designing a site if you aren’t targeting keywords that people are interested in? You can type in a keyword, such as “baseball cards,” and see all of the relevant keywords that people are searching for, such as “baseball cards value” or “Topps buying baseball cards Zephyrhills.” This gives you good keywords to focus your content around.
And for those of you that like do your own homework, there’s no need to call your broker, asking about high-yielding small-caps. Chances are your broker doesn’t know!
Bert “Pig Iron” Corbeau is not a well-known name. Yet, Corbeau’s 1923-24 V145-1 #25 hockey card is the most valuable hockey card in the world. Corbeau had a ten year NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens, Hamilton Tigers and Toronto St. Pats (predecessor to the Maple Leafs) from 1917-18 to 1926-27. He was part of the Montreal Canadiens first Stanley Cup winning team, the first player to play for both Montreal and Toronto during his career and the first player to record 100 penalty minutes in one season. Corbeau’s rookie card from 1923-24 is valued at $20,000 but expect to pay much more if one can be found for sale.
