Just wondering if anyone has any success on promoting your own website
to eBay and Amazon customers ?

Personally when I buy on eBay repeat purchase from the same company on their website is very rare.

I agree - I convert very few of my eBay or Amazon shoppers. Most of my traffic is organic from certain keywords, but it is not very heavy. I find some Facebook ads to work some, at least overtime. I am hoping to start doing PPC and Google PLAs in the next month or so. Changing some stuff on the website right now so I didn't want to pay for traffic at the moment.

What works for us is to take all the email address from the customers who purchased goods from our ebay stores, and then paste them into Constant Contact. We then use this database in Constant Contact to email weekly any specials we have in our websites.

This works well and can generate a fair few sales.

Recently we sold a whole 40 foot container of stock in 24 hours just from this strategy. Total cost of advertising (1 email!).
