eBay seller Meetup in London this Thursday

No primary category set

Are you in London and fancy a few pints with other eBay sellers this Thursday evening? If so make your way over to the Walkabout pub in Putney for 7.30pm, where the first monthly eBay Meetup is to take place.

The event is being organised by Nathan O’Hanlon who has worked for eBay over the last eighteen months. He comes from a web development background and is no stranger to organising Meetups, the last group he set up was for web professionals, and is now the largest Meetup group in New Zealand with over 500 members.

This group will not be run by eBay, but is for sellers on eBay to share tips and tricks for trading on the site. For this the first Meetup the topics are Best Match, visibility, and how to maintain your listing; Selling items in bulk; Third party tool comparisons.

Doubtless there’ll be plenty of time for a few pints afterwards ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Chris, great – sounds good. I had an appointment in Maidenhead at 6:30, but have moved this now, so I am 100% going. 7:30 start – I would say set off at about 6pm? – meet at Post Office @ 6pm?

  2. I sleep ,think ,eat, and fart ebay
    not a chance of me spending my money or spare time to hear it live

    ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  3. Anyone who spends an hour and a half or more to get over here deserves a free beer – my shout. After all, meetup.com charges me 10 pounds less a month to run this (because I started one before they started charging! )

    Will be great to see you all there, RSVP at https://meetup.com/ebayuk – it’s free.

  4. Sounds like a fine idea to me. Wrong side of London for me though & already have plans for this Thursday. If they do another in East London I’d be up for it!

  5. Hey, how did it go? Will you be writing this up, Sue and Chris?
    Would have loved to have been able to attend, but it was too short notice to get someone to look after the kids. More notice next time would be FAB!

  6. Hey Andrea, John Pemberton and I drove up from Berkshire and have to say it was a most enjoyable evening. Content was great – mainly focused around a Best Match discussion including a conference call to Mark @ eBay (who is the Best Match Guru). along with looking at each others eBay shops and swapping some thoughts on how to improve them using everything from A (anchor tags) to Z (video from vZaar).

    There was even one attendee who’s never even bought on eBay let alone sold but wants to set up an eBay business. She went off with the advice to a) Do all her Christmas shopping on eBay and b) Flog all the stuff she gets given and didn’t want in the New Year. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Venue was great – in a pub upstairs room with no distractions from other punters, small balcony with a great view over the highly entertaining and much underrated Putney High Street.

    Future Meetups will be 3rd Thursday of every month (bar December), so stick January 15th in your diary ๐Ÿ˜€ Finally many thanks to Nathan for organising the meetup and to the Sevmeister (AKA Adrian @ vzaar) for the copious quantities of unexpected freebies and a most generous round of drinks (I’ve never seen someone carry quite so many bottles of beer upstairs without dropping one and then produce two more from their pockets ๐Ÿ˜€ )

  7. I concur with Chris, it was a good evening, and a welcome break to escape the rolling green fields of Berkshire to some London night life ๐Ÿ™‚ Some interesting discussion on Best Match, and an impressive demo on Vzaar – something I hope to take advantage on in the near future.

    I can recommend GBK (Gourmet Burger Kitchen) as a good evening restaurant just off Putney High St, after the talk…gosh I was starving…and the Falafel burger went down a treat ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am sure that girl was French not Polish Chris!!

    Look forward to the Jan meet.

  8. Typical, I’m back at the same hotel I was at for SB2.0 next Sat/Sun always the same, a week too late I spose ๐Ÿ™‚

    Again, we’ll have to start a Midlands one! Preferably Burton/Derby lol ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. I am buggered if I know where you all find the time from
    I am lucky to squeeze in the 10 o clock news and a pee
    never mind rampaging the country meeting folks
