  • (1888PressRelease) December 08, 2012 - Indian River, Michigan, United States - 'Almost Free Money' is a title that any entrepreneur worth their salt is sure to take notice of. And take notice they did, to the tune of well over 1,500 e-books downloaded from the Amazon Kindle platform during a seven day free promotional period, with zero public relations expenditure.

    'Almost Free Money' was launched in conjunction with author Eric Michael's launch of the informational website Garage Sale Academy, which disseminates information to visitors about how to resell low-cost used items found at garage sales, thrift stores and flea markets for profit. The 90 page book features a spreadsheet list of 520 items that may be found in most locations in the world for under $1, and gives sellers the eBay category or other location where the seller would earn the most profits on each item. The author provides real-world experiences resulting from over twelve years of reselling used items online at eBay and Amazon. Instruction is provided for finding such free and low-priced items in a variety of locations, including garage and yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets, and even lying around on street corners or in the woods. For instance, who would have guessed that you could save used baby food containers, and sell them to crafters for bead storage?

    The benefits of the 'Almost Free Money' system become obvious fairly quickly:
    There are minimal start-up costs - anybody can do it, including the unemployed and stay-at-home-parents
    There is a never-ending supply of items that can be resold
    The author provides many categories of materials and items, so that sellers can diversify
    Internet links are provided for research of new items to sell
    The process of finding inventory is enjoyable. It's akin to treasure hunting.

    Entertaining accounts of garage sale expeditions and examples of high value garage sale finds make the book enjoyable, while the reader learns the ins and outs of the reselling business. Included in the book are chapters on locating free items to sell, where to sell items, selling items on Amazon, selling items on eBay, the basics of scrap metal, the first trip to a scrap metal dealer (selling scrap metal), finding gold and silver for cheap, selling vintage electronics, disassembling vintage electronics for parts sales, garage sale shopping, finding items online, researching, income tax issues, and organizing the business.

    'Almost Free Money' is currently available in multiple formats, including Amazon Kindle, instructional DVD at the Amazon marketplace, and on Digital Download through Clickbank, which also provides affiliate opportunities for readers to make money by selling the title on their own websites or blogs.

    Garage Sale Academy is a website devoted to assisting internet re-sellers in locating quality inventory at affordable prices. It currently features over 40 pages of content related to flipping garage sale and thrift store treasure, and instruction for users in improving internet sales and profit margins. The site had over 4,000 page views in its first full month of service in November 2012.
