Introducing our newest online training course:
Trade Me Success Secrets: The Online Course
In 2005 we wrote the first edition of Trade Me Success Secrets.
It sold out within six weeks.
We reprinted that first edition immediately (of course).
Then, in 2007, we updated and released a second edition.
Those copies are all long gone as well.
We decided to hold off on a third edition until we could release it electronically.
Now we’ve opted for something even better.
We’re releasing Trade Me Success Secrets as an online training course, complete with videos, slideshows and packed full with information about how to buy for less and sell more profitably on New Zealand’s most popular auction website.
The course content, naturally, is completely refreshed and updated for 2015.
Here’s what the course covers:
