Spicy Auction Template is a website from eBay seller Andrew Minalto that offers users access to a number of eBay templates and resources.
What does the product offer?
Spicy Auction Template allows users to update and improve their eBay listings through a massive number of templates. In fact, Andrew Minalto says that Spicy Auction Template features in excess of 800 templates that are spread over 37 different categories to ensure that you are marketing your listings in the right way. As well access to all these templates you can also expect a number of training videos to show you how to put your Spicy Auction Template content to work for you. As something of a bonus Andrew Minalto draws on his considerable knowledge of eBay marketing to provide 20 “never before released” marketing strategies. There is also an active forum inside the members area with Spicy Auction Template sharing tips on successful eBay marketing. Finally Andrew Minalto will show you how to save money and time by using your own image hosting rather than paying eBay’s costs for this.
How does the product work?
The core of Spicy Auction Template lies in the fact that by making your listings look more professional you will see an increase in sales. There is definitely some truth to this, especially if you are running an eBay store.
What is the initial investment?
Access to Spicy Auction Template is available for £29.95 which offers you lifetime access to content and the members area. It is worth noting that if you have purchased Andrew Minalto’s other product, Easy Auction Business then you do get free membership to Spicy Auction Template.This also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee should you find that you Spicy Auction Template does not produce a “significant increase” in your eBay sales.
What is the rate of return?
There is no advertised rate of return for Spicy Auction Template which given the nature of the product is fair enough. There is however a strong theme throughout Spicy Auction Template that you can expect to see a significant increase in your sales. Realistically, whilst I feel that an increase is more than likely, I would think that it will not be as significant as some of the testimonials (some of which claim a 3 fold increase in sales).
Spicy Auction Template is something of a niche product that will probably work best for eBay sellers who operate within a specific niche. I also think that to get the best possible value out of Spicy Auction Template you should be selling quite a lot (again, preferably trying to keep it within a single niche). The fact is that if you fall into this category people will be much more comfortable buying from you if they feel like you are a large and professional organisation and Spicy Auction Template can help you to achieve this. The training and “advanced strategies” are a nice bonus and you may well find that you take something away from this if you are a new eBayer. That having been said, if you are already selling successfully to the point where you are trying to boost your sales further then I wouldn’t expect too much. Really though, for £30 you won’t have to sell too much extra before you recoup your costs and that may be enough to tempt you.
Although as Andrew Minalto seems to specialising in ebay tools, it does make you wonder how much of his revenue comes from selling these tools, compared to physically selling on eBay.
