Hi everyone! Grace here, excited to talk to you all about some cool new tricks for bettering yourself (and possibly making money in the process).
At Bonanza, part of what makes us unique among marketplaces is that we are highly focused on the needs of our sellers. Much of Bonanza’s success over the past several years is thanks to the sellers - both old and new - that make up the Bonanza community. In return, we aim to support that community by designing tools, creating content, and updating features that make selling online a breeze.
One of Bonanza’s core values is that growth is constant. We recognize that we don’t know it all but we are committed to making a better version of ourselves every day. In keeping with that mindset, I’d like to share with you some ways that Bonanza sellers can be even more successful.
Get to Know Your Community
You might be reading this and thinking to yourself, “Sure, there are some pretty active sellers on the site. But I’m still new to Bonanza - surely you’re not talking to me.” You’ll be happy to hear that yes, I am in fact talking to you! Everyone was new around here at some point or another. What better way to make yourself at home than by getting to know the Bonanza community?
It’s not hard to feel inspired by the wonderful group of sellers on Bonanza. You can ask for sage advice from some of our most tenured sellers, see what kinds of deals and promotions are going on right now, or make friends with other sellers who are currently online. It’s not all fun and games, but we have some of that too.
Knowledge is Power
It’s no secret that it takes some moxie to sell online. Determination and drive are important aspects of being a successful entrepreneur. Since you’re here reading this post, it’s safe to assume you’re an intelligent, ambitious, likeable person (not to mention funny and cute, but that’s beside the point).
Put your smarts to use and sign up to teach on Skillshare. What is Skillshare, you ask? Well, it’s pretty much what it sounds like - a community of people who are sharing their skills online. Skillshare classes fall into a wide variety of topics, including Crafts, DIY, Entrepreneurship, Fashion, Gaming, Photography, and Creativity. These classes consist of a series of video lessons broken down into bite-sized videos that are all pre-recorded and self-paced. It’s a great way to earn a passive income - once your class is live on Skillshare, you earn royalties when others participate in the class. And, in the spirit of bettering ourselves - you can also take this opportunity to learn a new skill that you’ve been wanting to master for awhile.
Submit an Idea
We’ve all been taught that two heads are better than one. At Bonanza we believe that 35,000 heads are better than one. That’s why we ask for your ideas on how to improve the site. We pride ourselves on building a product that serves the needs of our users, so we love to hear about ways to enhance your Bonanza experience.
Some of our favorite features have come from seller feedback - the Customer Marketing Tool, internal item note capabilities, and our Global Shipping Service, to name a few. Dr. Wayne Dyer said “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” We love having such a diverse group of sellers because it provides us with countless perspectives to the complicated issues we aim to solve every day.
The Only Constant is Change
Things are happening around us at incredible speeds all the time. In the 5 minutes it took you to read this blog post, 290 airplanes have taken off, 580 people got married, and 1,250 babies were born. Lightning has struck the earth 1,800 times and Oprah has made $2,615 (seriously!). With the world changing constantly, the best thing to do is change with it. Become a better version of yourself than you were yesterday and try make the world a better place, one day at a time.
