The Dallas eBaybes & eMales Invite eComerce Sellers to Event August 25th, 2008

Dallas eBaybes & eMales ~ the largest eBay group in the country ~ invite Dallas area eCommerce Sellers to join our Meetup Group and come to our monthly meeting Monday, August 25th, 2008

Dallas has the largest eBay Seller's Group in the country! Our eBay Sellers Meetup group has over 300 members who meet monthly to learn more about selling on eBay and how to further develop our ecommerce business. We are "the Dallas eBaybes & eMales". eBay sellers in the Dallas Metroplex and surrounding areas are invited to join our meetup group ~ membership is FREE.

Check out this post on eBay's The Chatter Blog:

We are an INDEPENDENT group of eBay sellers who get together once a month for educational and networking opportunities. We are not a part of eBay other than we are all eBay sellers. We don't charge dues or fees to belong to our group and the only financial cost we have each month is if we want to buy dinner (an optional buffet dinner is available each month but we do have some members who come and skip the dinner). Our regular meetings usually start off with an optional Back to Basics class and then we typically have an invited speaker. Some months we will do a Powerseller Panel where some of our newer sellers can ask questions and we can share knowledge and help each other. As I previously mentioned we have approximately 300+ active members and we usually have 70-100 at each of our meetings. We are all levels from Newbies to Gold and Platinum Powersellers and we all come away from each meeting learning something. It is also nice to have a support group that speaks the eBay language and can sympathize and encourage. We also discuss and educate in other areas that compliment our eBay business, such as selling on Amazon, affiliate marketing, photography, photo editing, seller software solutions, and expanding our ecommerce to other sites.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get up close and personal with other ebay sellers! The event will include a buffet dinner, educational sessions and a Town Hall style meeting.
