Skip McGrath Bio

Skip McGrath is an internet marketer whose main focus is on selling products through the online auction site, eBay. McGrath has a website where he provides free information and training on how to make money selling through eBay, and he also sells a comprehensive written manual and CD course called “The Complete eBay Marketing System”.

Skip McGrath Detailed Overview

When it comes to making a full-time living selling on eBay, Skip McGrath really knows his stuff. He makes not only a full-time living through selling on the eBay auction site, but an impressive living that is more than comfortable. McGrath is a “power seller” on eBay, which means that he's attained a selling status over time that has taken him to a whole new level.

McGrath was a power seller on eBay for years before he developed his course “The Complete eBay Marketing System”, which is a good selling point for it. McGrath claims that he went through all of the trial and error of making money through eBay before he ever even considered selling his successful system. He lays the system out step by step in his course, and you can benefit from what he learned from his mistakes without having to make them yourself. The course comes in the form of a written manual, 2 CD's and some bonuses that are shipped directly to you. The course costs $97.

Skip McGrath also conducts eBay workshops where he talks about certain marketing niches. He only allows a minimum amount of clients to attend each workshop or purchase the recordings of the workshops in order to make sure that the niches don't get overly saturated. You can visit his website any time, however, and get some fairly valuable tips and information for free.

I have followed for five months now, not disappointed!

I have followed Skip McGrath for the past five months, I am not disappointed at all, I have found his ideas great. I believe that to help new people open to selling Anyang on the Internet, Skip and a few others aren't wanting to burden new people into purchasing a Pallet of products, sign up for large amounts of items then find it's not to their liking. They would be considered "mean and rude" and you would quit thinking it was the person, EBay, the internees fault, etc... Skip McGrath and a few others want you to start from where you are, learn some basics, try selling items from home first, then try local products where YOU can build up with small experience THEN move into Wholesale, Pallets, Group Purchasing, etc...

Skip's Wholesale Products is a fantastic product, his monthly NewsBlog, there is SO MUCH you can start with to get your feet wet first THEN build YOURSELF UP to the next level. I'll give a quick example; I received similar advice from Skip McGrath and Jordan Malik about looking through local Craigslist and Freecycle for products. I am a new Seller and in February alone, I received 50+ BOXES OF FREE SPORTS MEMORABILIA, maybe valued at over $3000, a almost full set of Harvard Classics books from 1909, maybe valued $250-300, college texts books from $5-25 I can resell $50-120... No pressure to over purchase, no pressure for wholesale products. NOW I can afford to go to the next step and move in these areas when ready. I think we all need to treat selling online as a college major and learn to study to put us in the right direction. I personally believe Skip does this and I appreciate the hard work.

Really helpful

Nowdays everyone tends to sell their worthless ownings in online selling sites like ebay. But can say that a lot don't know how to advertise the things they want to sell and neither how to put those on ebay. Learning how to do this in a few days, that is this sites role. And that is really helpful. To be honest I didn't know how to do this. But reading the content in this page I learned a lot. Including some tricks on good product advertising. A good advertised product has more possibilities of selling. They are a click away from really helpful information.

Books and Membership Good. One on One Coaching for $3600 is Suspect

I had a very interesting conversation with the Terry, sales manager for onlinesellingcoach.com today. This is the organization that offers one on one consulting services for those trying to improve their ecommerce sales.

I started to ask a few questions trying to get a feel for whether they can help me or not & the salesman, Terry, said something like, well looks like this is not going to work out. He told me that his main job was to weed out the following types of people: those who think they know it all already, those who want them to do the work for them, those looking for free advice, and anyone else who might not be a fit. They want to work with people who are willing to take direction.

I got the impression that they get a lot of calls from prospects. He also said if it looks like a fit they will elect to work with us, giving me an impression that they were very selective in who they work with. I was not sure if this was a sales tactic or the truth. Anyway, I felt that at that point I was treated quite rudely by this person.

They have a yearly subscription to their newsletters & articles that looked like a decent value & lots of good information that also included a free 30 minute coaching session. I mentioned this to the salesman that I might go that route initially to get a feel for how much they could help me and he told me that THIS was the 30 minute coaching session. I found that very odd since I had not picked up one bit of information from him that would be helpful to my business. It was not a coaching session at all.

I do have a long list of questions & I would like to pose a couple of those questions during a “free” 30 minute coaching session after signing up for their monthly membership. Being able to pose those question would allow me to evaluate whether I would want to take the larger bite of $3600 that they are asking for.

I’ve read a few of Skip’s free articles and they are quite informative and lots of tidbits of information that are helpful. I’ve listened to some of Suzanne’s videos and those are quite good too.

They could not give me any specifics on what they will deliver since they say everyone’s needs are unique.

Bad Reviews and reports of high pressure sales tactics

Onlinesellingcoach.com does seem to have some problems. I only found 2 reviews and both of them were very bad on IM Report Card buried in Skip’s and Jim’s reviews. Skip and Jim have great reviews personally on IM report card. But most of the reviews for Skip and Jim are for the books mostly.

There was another person who said they were being harassed by the onlinesellingcoach.com salesman. In his review he had some of the same concerns I had. He never signed up just because of their attitude.

Another thing that set off alarm bells is that they did not want to do an evaluation process. They were ready to work with me based on my crappy website ranking alone, which I think could be viable actually. But still.. smelled a bit weird.

Bait and Switch again?

Also, it looks like to me that Skip and Jim don’t actually work with any customers. Nathan Bailey appears to be the primary consultant and he does have a consulting firm but has not written any articles. Skip also does say that he does not do any of the training himself, but has trained the people who we will be working with, which seems to be Nathan.

In short it appears to me that the monthly membership and their books are a good value and most people are happy with them. But for the one on one coaching costing $3600 there is not enough information to do an honest evaluation and at least on the surface now appears to be a bad value. I am left wondering why such “good” guys like Jim and Skip would allow their names to be associated with something that on the surface appears to be shady.

Learn From One Of The Best

For anyone just starting out or has been selling online for awhile you need to add Skip's website and newsletter to your selling tools. I ran across Skip several years ago shortly after we began selling on eBay & Amazon. Skip was primarily teaching about eBay then but now has broadened to become a valuable Amazon selling mentor as well. He publishes a newsletter twice a month that provides valuable content for selling online. He has many great instructional courses available in which we have purchased and used many. Skip provides a lot of free information that others would be charging to access. His newsletter offers a niche of the month section as well as a list of wholesale companies with a description of their goods. I give Skip & Karen A++ with all of their material and information.

Brilliant Website

I've never sold anything on eBay till I came across Skip McGrath's

Blog. He's absolutely fantastic, after reading most of his Tips &

Tricks on how to sell on eBay I finally sold my first item for a

whopping $325. I Highly Recommend his site to anyone Beginner,

or Advanced this guy knows his stuff when it comes to making money

on eBay.

If he had only responded!

A few years ago I bought into Skip McGrath's program and signed up for the coaching program he endorsed. Feeling pretty safe in doing this, I don't mind stating the program was connected with the Thrive program who I have heard (unsubstantiated personally) has 19 indictments pending. First coach taught almost the opposite procedures that Skip taught and basically I was told he did not have time to defend himself as he has a busy business of his own on the internet. I then talked to a manager who it seems had only limited abilities and instructed me to go to the "freecycle" website and find things for free and then sell them for a profit. All this for $3000, all based on Skips recommendation. This brings me back to the title of my thread. I have written to Skip several times and he has not once acknowledged my letter or offered an apology. Nothing at all, so here it is Skip my review for the world to see, and it all could have been prevented by a simple apology. Too late and I sincerely hope this helps folks to at least ask, research and read. Oh and I forgot to mention after only 2 weeks into the program there was a complete refusal of any kind of refund because I "electronically signed" the contract which I found was also bogus. I am sure there are good results somewhere on the web for Skip and God bless them. All I know is I got ripped off royally.

Skip Mcgrath Coaching and Mentoring Program

First I want to say I like Skip’s book - Three Weeks to eBay profits and like how the material was presented. However, when I was called to see if I was interested in Skip’s new coaching and mentoring program, I was disappointed. They say it is not a “cookie cutter program”, but an individualized training with a consultant. The cost would depend on what the individual needs are of the student. Here’s the problem. Skip wants $500 up front with a total cost of $2100. How can one put a price on training without first having a student and consultant counseling session. I was dismissed upon my reply mail when I wanted to know what I was getting and cost before registering. I feel a program like this should spell out what costs are involved after the student evaluation. I know Skip is reputable from his ratings, but this coaching/mentoring appears to be a scam in how it is presented. Would you purchase an automobile new without knowing anything about the car?

Skip McGrath

I have joined Skip McGrath's affiliate program, and am studying all of his material. He is a very impressive and knowledgeable individual in all aspects of eBay Buying/Selling. I recommend his information and tutorial articles to anyone looking to be successful in eBay!

He provides some of the most basic and easy to understand information on the web, and is an asset to the eBay Community.

The Real Deal

In today's world where people are looking for guidance, you can be lead down the garden path very easily by the so called gurus of e-commerce. I know I have learned the hard way and have paid dearly for my mistakes. If Skip Mcgrath had not come along I would have given up a long time ago. I have purchased his marketing materials and subscribed to his news letters including the geezers guide. His resources have literally turned my life and outlook totally around. He is the real deal!

Selling mind “ Skip “

World’s highest online sales and purchases have been taking place through the ebay website. Such type of websites are following some marketers to get lots of income for their products and increase their sales. Among all these marketers the person who I found to be the best source was “Skip McGrath“. He is the person who has made his life totally on sales of that website. He has created a new website where we can get a free tutorial about the sales and how to make the cash out through these sites and sales of the products given by the companies. He has been in the sales department all through the years since he had started this work as his profession.

Skip provides practical, useable material

I have purchased and still actively reference Skip's "Complete eBay Marketing System" and it helped me reach Powerseller level fairly quickly after starting on eBay.

His "Consignment Selling" program delivers as well. His teachings are usable right away and he shoots straight.

Another great thing about Skip is he only recommends products and services that he has first hand experience with. Very refreshing in today's IM environment.

By far, I consider Skip the "guru" of eBay marketing.

Good Products & Information

I have purchased a few of Skip's products and have contacted him by phone a couple of times for clarification or to request additional information.

He has always been willing to go the extra mile to answer questions to help me improve my current business.

The items I have purchased have been very helpful, from getting me started initially and now in helping me to expand my sales.

Skip McGrath AN Honest Ebay Expert

Skip has been sharing his experience with his readers for years. Skip's newsletter is the most helpful newsletter published monthly for Ebay sellers and it's still free. I have read his publication for years and he offers tips on CURRENT Ebay sales tactics as well as advice on selling on the internet. His information published monthly is high quality content and he should charge a subscription charge for all he is giving away. I always feel Skip is talking to me when I read his information. His down to earth style makes his reader comfortable with learning whatever Skip is teaching. I have purchased three of his books and I like the fact that he gives you an actual printed book to read and refer to as you learn the subject. I would recommend any of Skip's books to any of my friends who wanted to learn selling on the internet. He is the only resource you will ever need.

Skip McGrath made internet easier

Skip McGrath has been one of the best internet helpers I know. He had been working with ebay for so long and had been very successful. The best part about him is, he has put all his work into an article for us to learn from his yearly ebay marketing. Best part is it's not like those ebooks that cost 100$, and this one actually works!

Thanks to Skip McGrath, I now have a better knowledge of eBay.

Highly recommended!

I have been reading Skip McGraths' newsletter for close to 2 years, I guess. I look forward to receiving it in my e-mail and save several months in my inbox to re-read and review periodically. I enjoy reading it and have received lots of good, practical info from it.

I receive a number of "informational" e-mails and newsletters from various on-line sellers. I am very selective and can detect a line of hype so I usually have good info coming in, but Skip is the top of the list in my opinion.

I, like most of us, like the sound of being able to earn $50 thousand in your first few months of sales (or some other ridiculous claim), but Skip helps keep our feet on the ground and our heads out of the clouds. You get out of anything what you put into it. Skip will tell you that you can make money online and with effort, education and some time, you can make a really good living online.

I have downloaded a couple of Skips' free articles and have them in a binder so I can refer to them. I, also, just purchased his book, "How To Make Money Blogging From Home". I am over halfway through and can say that I have a much better grasp of what blogging is and how to do it and it is worth the $27!

If you want to learn from an experienced, honest online seller I highly recommend Skip McGrath!

One of the Best! A+ Recommend To All Serious eBay Online Sellers

After months of searching for legitimate online gurus for eBay & other selling platforms, and many hundreds of dollars, I ran across Skip McGrath. I had some experience selling on eBay over 150 items when I had the desire to grow my business. I purchased Skips "The Complete eBay Marketing System" and was extremely happy with the purchase. I read Skips free newsletter that has more valuable free information, wholesale sources and all that is better than a lot of the stuff I've paid good money for. After my first purchase I have been a return customer many times buying more of his info products. I recommend Skip to anyone seriously considering starting or growing their eBay and online businesses. Thanks Skip & Karen!

A Great Man with a Willingness to Share

I have been a fan of Skip's for about 5 years - that's how long I have been on his mailing list. Imagine that 5 years on one persons mailing list!

Skip is an honest man who has taught me many things, not just about eBay, but about the Internet in general. He never bombards you with the latest and greatest shiny new thing. His newsletters are thoughtful and full of information. He keeps me up to date and informed on the current market information for online auctions. I am not a power seller, and I do not make my living selling on eBay, it is not my forte, but Skip has helped me when I do sell the occasional item and has given me a better eye for spotting things to sell. It is because of him that when I do list something, it actually gets bid on and sells!

If you are not on his mailing list and you want to make online auctions a career, Skip McGrath is the "go to guy". All I can say is get on his emailing list and read his blog, then if you think online auctions is something you might be interested in buy his course.

Knowledge unlimited

I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years & sure wish I had found Skip when I first started. Up front, truthful, gives the good, the bad & the ugly on everything!

I subscribed to Skip’s newsletter and look forward to receiving it every month. With the ebay community ever changing, Skip keeps up on it all & his newsletters will let you know what's going on, what's upcoming & is packed full of new ideas.

Since my eBay selling is 95% antiques & collectibles, the only thing I do not find interesting is the info on sourcing products, bulk purchase sites or warehousing articles but these may be just what your looking for.

Give him a try! His newsletters are FREE!

The Ebay Guru

I have purchased and read several of Skip McGrath's ebooks, one about blogging, and one about selling on Amazon. Both were extremely helpful. I saved the ebooks to be able to refer back to them again and again. I really would like to expand my online selling past eBay and Amazon is my next choice. Skip McGrath's guide has given me some good ideas and practical suggestions.

Skip's newsletter is also extremely helpful. I glean something from every issue. From his store reviews, I've learned details that help me with my own eBay store layout and thereby increasing sales. I feel that the information I've gotten from Skip's material has led to my achieving Powerseller status for the first time!

I learn something every time I pick up his marketing book

I met Skip and his wife a few years ago at the San Jose eBay Live event. I had heard about Skip from some friends who recommended his information to me. I had struggled for a couple of years, trying to become a serious seller on the site.

His marketing book plus blog posts & newsletters have helped me go from novice to informed, experienced online seller. What I thought was too complicated for me to tackle was explained in his marketing book in a very straight forward manner with plenty of screen shots to compliment his detailed information.

I still have a way to go, but because of Skip books and newsletters, I have the resources to carve out my own success as an online seller.

The best Ebay internet seller on the web

Skip gave me everything I needed to start selling my products on Ebay. I wasn't making the profit I truly wanted so I decided to look for alternative ways to sell the products. I came across Skip's website and started reading his blogs. I was astounded by his depth of knowledge on everything he talked about and he made it sound simple so I endeavored onto Ebay selling. For starters I bought his program "how to sell the perfect Ebay product". This guide gave me the knowledge I needed to start my own line of Ebay products and how to accredit my products to the highest reputation. I instantly got more sales on my Ebay account than on my three websites combined thanks to his easy method of attracting the most buyers. Skip McGrath has the best selling strategies in the internet marketing business.

Skip's blogging book and newsletters

I have read Skip’s ebook How to Make Money Blogging from Home. It is very helpful. It got me started on my blog and it saved me a LOT of time by taking me step by step through the process since I had never done a blog before. I also subscribed to Skip’s newsletter and it is VERY helpful. I am an ebay seller like he is and have been selling for over 10 years so I thought I knew just about everything! Not so! There is always more to learn and the community is ever changing and Skip really keeps up with it and makes some great suggestions in his newsletters. He also gives recommendations in his newsletters for sourcing products. I tried one of them and have done very well with his advice. And his newsletters are FREE!

Two words for Skip McGrath ... Ebay guru

What can I say about Mr. McGrath? Expert on Ebay selling! I can make a promise to you. If you know nothing about selling on Ebay and have given serious consideration to giving it a try, one visit to his website and you will learn very quickly why he is one of the best at selling. His straight-forward, no-nonsense approach makes him instantly likable and the information that he provides for free is like finding a gallon of ice cold water in the desert to those that are unfamiliar with selling om Ebay. Honestly, upon just reading his free thoughts, ideas, and suggestions I want to set up my own Ebay store. I could only begin to imagine the depth of his knowledge on the information that he sells. I highly recommend viewing the free "77 Tips and Tools for Selling" and "What's The Perfect eBay Product ???" at his site. If you are a novice, you may find yourself optimistic about the possibility of selling on Ebay.

Helpful and honest!

I have been reading Skip's blog and newsletters for a long time and have several of his books. He has been very helpful to me. He has great information on sites and doesn't sell a lot of hype. I have been selling on eBay for quite a few years, and he keeps me informed of items of interest.

I have also purchased some of his items on eBay and he and his wife were very helpful. They were out of one of the items and they gave me the deluxe model for the same price. Great customer service.

I emailed them once for advice and he took the time to help me and emailed me back quickly. I have been very impressed with both Skip and his wife Karen, they are a rare breed. He does not recommend products unless he believes in them. I have not used his money back guarantee, but it is nice to know it is there.

If there were more people like him and his wife we wouldn't have to worry about scammers.

Skip McGrath's Complete eBay Marketing System

There is some great info on eBay about how to get started selling, but it's mostly mechanical such as how to upload photos, how to write a title and so on.

Then I came across Skip McGrath's Complete eBay Marketing System. It is a bit expensive and I paused because of that, but then I read so many good reviews about it that I went ahead. Skip said he is an experience eBay power seller and boy he must be because his info was awesome.

Besides showing me how to run my eBay business, he even includes a whole section about how, what and where to buy wholesale products for eBay.

This is the real deal

This guy is the real deal. He doesn’t promise you millions of dollars which are usually scams, but instead a realistic few hundred dollars when you first start off up to a few thousand when you become better at it. He is patient, willing to teach and emphasizes that patience and hard work is the key to succeeding on ebay. Overall, his honesty is something that has spurred me to buy his 97 dollar package which teaches even a seasoned ebayer something new. If you are looking for a no nonsense, no scamming, deal offer this is the right one for you.

Wealth of Knowledge

I've been selling on eBay for a little bit and the task can be pretty daunting for someone pretty much just starting out. As someone seeking information on how to be a successful eBay seller, I came across Skip McGrath and am truly grateful. He has a wealth of knowledge about eBay selling that has and is helping me. Recently I attended an internet meeting he held with a few members of his eBay team, and came away with some great information.

The informational was on where and how to find items to sell on eBay. Skip and his team offered up a myriad of ideas such as checking craigslist, using research tools like hammertap, and keepoing up with trends. Many of the ideas I had never even thought of before, but have found to be more than helpful when trying to find sell-able items for my eBay business. There is definitely much you can learn from Skip McGrath!

Not just an aBay guru

Though Skip McGrath is probably best known as an eBay guru/powerseller, he is also the author of an excellent book on how to set up a Yahoo Store titled, "How to Sell Anything on Yahoo!-- and make a fortune!"

If you would like to branch out from selling on eBay and set up your own website and sell physical items, then this book will show you step by step how to set up your business and your website. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, Skip doesn't claim that once you set up your site you will be raking in the millions overnight as it does take effort to build a real business. If you have ever thought about setting up a Yahoo Store read this book first and get the full story on what it entails.

One of the best there is

I don't sell on Ebay, nor do I plan to be a power seller. But I have read Skip McGrath's Make Money Blogging from Home, and it is the best $27 that I have ever spent. What I really liked about Skip is that he doesn't make a lot of promises, such as earning thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars by blogging. He has been able to set a realistic expectation, which is to earn a few hundred dollars when you start, and gradually earn to a few thousand dollars after some time. He also stated that to earn one should be patient and to work hard for it. Not like others who claim you can make a lot of money from blogging just by sitting pretty and doing nothing. That's honesty on his part, and honesty is one thing I really look for when it comes to looking for an online mentor or guru to look up to. I could say Skip is a credible person, and he definitely knows his stuff. He is a no nonsense guy and he is one that I look up to.

Selling on ebay can be quite profitable!

I first heard of Skip when I was making a purchase. I bought my item and was very satisfied. This was way before I became a seller on eBay. I had maybe 20 feedback from purchases that I made there and to me that was not enough to start selling with. I received several emails from eBay telling me to start selling but I never thought too much of it until I made a purchase from Skip. I seen his feedback and was amazed at how high it was. I had never seen anyone on eBay with that much feedback.

I sent him an email asking for a little help on selling. I told him my goal and about my new ambition. I wanted to be a seller on eBay. This was a few months ago. I received an email back with a link to his website. I got nothing in the email but the link. I clicked on it and there it was. The start of a brand new life for me. At that time I did not know it but as it played out it was.

I went through with it and learned so much from Skip. I was reluctant to be able to learn all the mistakes that I could possible make before I made them. There was no trial and error. He took care of that for me. The only thing I really had to learn was how to receive money and how the process was of selling. I am very proud of myself as an eBay seller. I am well on my way to becoming one of the top sellers there. I am not eligible to be a power seller yet for one reason… That reason is I have not been on eBay selling for 90 days. You have to be a member for 90 days to become a power seller. You have to have a certain number of feedback and sales - amount of sales (net). I am only a week from getting my power seller status and I feel like I have earned it the easy way because of Skip.

I did not like the fact that I had to find my own products to sell and the amount of money it takes to put into this but I will say that it was worth it. I am now sitting 3000 feedback tall and proud of it. I have never had a negative feedback because I see it that if I do it hurts my chances. I make sure that I address my customers needs. You learn everything you need to know to become successful with eBay from Skip.

He is an eBay mastermind. I love all the information that Skip gives to you and the fact that he cares about his students. I recommend this to anyone with a computer.
