The Who, The What and The Why: Your Keys to eBay Success with Danni Ackerman

The Who, The What & The Why: Your Keys to eBay Success

Who, what and why? They seem like simple questions, but Danni Ackerman of The Danni App will show you just how important these three W's are to your eBay business. 

Gone are the days where we could just list everything and anything and watch it sell. Now we need to think more like a business and use strategic marketing to drive traffic to OUR items and get the sale.

Danni will explore just what thinking like a business means to you. Who do you want to be online?  Who does your customer see?  What is your niche? What do you love the most about your business?  Why are you doing all this?  Those are just a few of the questions we will explore and hopefully you leave having them answered and ready to move forward.

Danni Ackerman is an eBay seller since 1998 but has spent her life buying and selling stuff.  She grew up in thrift stores and antique malls and when eBay came along it was a match made in Heaven!  Danni coaches, mentors and inspires others to grow their eBay businesses through The Danni App Academy ( where she holds both virtual and real life training for eBay sellers.
She is the author of Storage Lockers for Fun and Profit, Buying at Auction Houses for Fun and Profit, and co-author of The Ultimate Guide to Savings by Store, Business Success with Ease and The Home-Run Guides Vol l & ll.  You can also find her on Danni App TV each Sunday night where she shows you cool stuff that sells for big bucks!


New to eBay selling or looking for a refresher?

Sherry Gilson will conduct a New Seller Session from 6:15 - 7:00 pm just prior to our Meetup. All are welcome to attend.  We will be going over the things that will help you to reach Top Rated Seller and what eBay is deeming that is most important to your success now and in the future.

    This was my second meetup with this group. Being a returning eBayer a lot has changed since I was selling 12 yrs. ago. Danni Ackerman provided us with some great useful tools. Also, The Day with Danni was well worth the time and investment....not to mention the added bonus of Sherry Gilson's participation in our shopping trip! Thanks Danni and Sherry.

    Always informative having seasoned and experienced Sellers share their knowledge and experience with the group. Danni shared from her heart the tips and tricks of having a successful eBay Business. Was a Great learning experience.

    It was great! My best take-away was, "Find your niche market, stick to it and be picky! Pass everything else by. LIST as quickly as you buy, otherwise those are dollars sitting on the floor!"

    Thanks to all the organizers for your hard work.
