      Janelle says that buyers buy 2 things: security & confidence. The concept makes sense but it was helpful to get Scott’s ‘real life’ techniques for building trust and consumer loyalty through his marketing & branding.

      This is such an important concept because it’s so much easier to sell to someone who has already purchased from us than to sell to a complete stranger. Sometimes I think we lose sight of that. Thanks for the reminder!

      This podcast is brilliant, and makes a few points that people forget a lot, no matter what business they are in. Selling to existing customers is a lot easier, cheaper, and less time consuming than finding new customers for every sale, yet so few businesses do it! And building relationships, confidence and trust is what its all about.

      I liked the reminder about security too, keeping a watchful eye on your stuff ;)

      Scott is a great example of how successful you can be when you are (or position yourself as) an expert in a particular niche. Doing one thing and doing it well is a great way to build customer confidence, which results in more repeat customers. Now if I could just focus…(Hey what’s that new cool thing?)

      Scott Griggs demonstrates two key elements of being an entrepreneur–follow your passion and do not let a past failure keep you from a future success.

      Thanks for keeping the trains running–An inspirational interview.

      Scott shares with us his trials and tribulations of starting up an online business with eBay almost 10 years ago.

      He learned through mistakes of multiple ‘brick & mortar’ stores what he needed to do to run a successful online store. He starts his eBay store very tentatively and begins to learn software tools, email marketing and networking to improve sales. He made a lot of mistakes, (like all of us!) but preservered to become a Titanium PowerSeller!

      I truly enjoy his story of selling what you enjoy, being knowledgeable about your product and marketing & branding that product. He also has worked to market himself as someone his customers trust.

      It shows us that the price of an item doesn’t really matter. It is building a relationship and confidence with your buyers that will keep them coming back! This seems to be the ’secret’ to success!

      Scott fell in love with trains when he was 6.
      He collected repaired broken trains and sold them at train shows and his own train stores.
      Now he sells trains on Ebay for fun AND profit!

      Strong emphasis on building good relationships with customers & earning their trust; very strong on importance of marketing to existing customers versus putting too much effort into gaining new customers; how he overcame failures & learned from them is inspiring; transferred a lot of lessons from operating brick & mortar stores to eBay & eBay store; he gives good info on how to use software automation tools.

      Thanks for an inspiring interview. Scott is a soft-spoken man of confidence and it comes through in his interesting story. I am amazed at his calm demeanor, even though he has over 6,000 auctions ongoing and 17 employees. Obviously, he is doing something that he enjoys and he is good at it. This is a great listen for anyone who wants to hear how you can follow your dream (twice) to a successful life away from corporate world. Thanks again.

      I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Scott share his victories as well as his early defeats which laid the groundwork for his future success as an eBay Titanium Powerseller 10 years later. His story proves that lessons learned from early mistakes can have a silver lining…if you can handle the risk taking of entrepreneurship.

      His passion for trains, a family history of entrepreneurship,technical knowledge and people management skills gained while working for large computer hardware companies paved the way for his successful 17 person company. He is a prime example of “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again”.

      Scott learned from marketing gurus like the late Corey Rudl to hone his skills in marketing on the web. He developed a huge subscriber list of loyal repeat customers eager to read his lengthy monthly newsletter. He drives traffic from MySpace and YouTube to eBay and to his website. Using automation tools like Endicia and Channel Advisor his staff manages 6,000 listings to achieve sales goals.

      This podcast is a must for those who want a birds eye view of the life of a Titanium Powerseller. Scott’s advice is practical, time tested, and invaluable for any eBayer curious about taking the road less traveled.
