    Hello everyone. I'm one of the eBay team members that is coming to meet you all next week. Special thanks to Bruce and the other Meetup leaders from Central Florida for all of their help in making this event possible.

    The agenda for the night will be a reception from 6-7pm so we can all meet each other. At 7pm, we'll lead a presentation on strategies to grow your business where we'll focus on how to make the most out of the upcoming Holiday shopping season. When the presentation ends around 8pm, we'll open the floor for questions. We'll have experts from our Seller Protection team, our Shipping team, and our Social Media team, but if you have questions outside of those areas, we'll try to answer those too.

    We still have some open spots, so please tell your friends who might be interested about this event, and we're looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

    The Tampa meet up was great. Having a few contacts in the company is a tremendous asset to all of us, we now have a few people we can contact directly and put a face to. I would love to see a meet up start in the Tampa area. I-75 and Hwy 60 seems like the best central location to attract others from outlying area's too.
    It would be great to have it on a different day and keep Bruce and Jon as the Organizers. One meet up in the beginning of the month and one in the middle, I would go to both, like minded people are good to be around.

    Hey, Everyone!! I'm making name badges for the Hilton meeting. I've done one for everyone listed on the right side of this page.
    IF you are bringing a guest or unlisted partner, send me an email with their first name.. [masked]

    October 7, 2013

    • BETTY S.

      Jon thanks for all your work I already sent you a message about my guest Reggie Ford and Micheal Watkins this is the second message i sent you regarding guest today either way you will get one of them

      October 8, 2013

  • Jon W.

    Sherry, I drive 45-50 minutes each way, as does Bruce. Mack comes from Englewood. Betty comes from Tampa. Bruce and I regularly comment that we each learn something at new every meeting. Since there is no Tampa group, it would behoove any serious Ebay Seller to come to Sarasota's meetings, but that decision is theirs, regardless of where we meet. My drive-time will be about the same either to downtown Bradenton or Perkins on Fruitville Rd.

    1 · October 8, 2013

    • BETTY S.

      Jon my guest Reggie Ford and Micheal Watson I will be there also

      October 8, 2013

  • Jon W.

    Sherry, suppose some would miss the 'togetherness'? Or the piped-in music that competes with conversation? But, I agree that we should try it...well, at least once!

    October 8, 2013

    • Sherry S.

      You may get more members if it was closer to the Skyway, not really worth driving from Clearwater for an hour.

      I am driving from Jacksonville which is 4 hours away and trust me, it is worth it. I have been selling since 1999 and I still learn things every day.

  • Jeanne

    My name is Jeanne and I just happened upon your site and found out about this Hilton meeting tomorrow. I don't know if I can make it although I would love to come. I just started selling on eBay 5 days ago and have not even sold anything yet. I am just overwhelmed at how much there is to learn and could use all the help I could get. I live in St. Pete and I don't know if there is a group here but I could try to come to Sarasota sometimes. I am disabled and limited in how much I can handle.

    October 8, 2013

    • Jon W.

      Welcome to the group, Jeanne. I've made you a name tag for tomorrow night.... just in case you can make it. As someone new to Ebay selling, you'll learn more at our regular monthly meetings in Sarasota, methinks. Feel free to call me .. [masked] Jon

  • Jon W.

    We will be having staff from Seller Protection, Shipping (USPS, FedEx and
    DHL) and the Social team attending the event. We have been focusing our
    conversation around how to have a successful Holiday season and will touch
    on that and also provide some tips, tricks and best practices for your
    business. It's great for any new members as well as a good refresher for
    seasoned sellers! We also will be providing everyone with an eBay notebook and will be doing
    a drawing at the end of the night for some door prizes!


    Looking forward to seeing everyone.... Jon

    October 7, 2013

    • BETTY S.

    I wonder if everyone understands that Ebay is doing a mini EBAY-LIVE session in Tampa on the 9th for ALL FLORIDA Ebay Sellers, not just Sarasota.. they are flying a staff here because FL is a prime
    market for them + the large Sarasota membership.

      They are doing these meetups instead Ebay Live. I went to Ebay Live in Orlando in 2011 and it was so educational.

      September 30, 2013

  • Sherry S.

    When they click on Tamps, it does bring them to this page

    September 30, 2013

  • Sherry S.

    They must have just put it on the site in the last day or so, they may not know to sign up on here

    September 30, 2013

  • Sherry S.

    eBay has not updated the dates yet on ebay, so if people do not belong to this group, they may not know the date and location yet.

    If we would like to stay at the Hilton are they willing to accommodate at a discounted rate?

    September 24, 2013

    • Bruce Z.

      They do not have a discounted rate for the Hilton, If you do not want to drive that late, maybe you can carpool with someone.
