    Hi everyone,

    I'm taking a focus group survey right now. I am going to start selling tons of badminton products (not here, on ebay) in the next few months and I want to give away one free badminton gift each month to winning bidders (one gift in a draw per month). What do you think would be a good item? Shirt? Shoe? Racquet? DVD?

    Mid level racquet that is less than $110. I hate to see people ask for a ns7000.

    something that ebay doesnt sell like some of the strings that u can only get it from japan.
    most rackets in ebay is fake soo a lot of people won't buy rackets unless badmintoncentral people recommend you. there is only 3 or 4 ebayers that badmintoncentral people trust.

    if your going to sell rackets, i think silentheart has good idea. its really hard to find mid-class rackets in ebay. most of the rackets in ebay is high-class rackets. CAB30MS, MP88, AT500 and more of these kind of rackets would be good to sell in ebay..:D

    You might also want to look into selling other racquets besides Yonex such as Carlton, Kason, and Victor.

    I have kind of have a small concern about that though. There are so many fakes on ebay, that totally brings down the market prices. Same thing happened with the autograph industry.

    Another question guys, what type of product would you guys like to have, a product to enhance your badminton experience? What is the main problem with the products of today's market? in your opinion

    maybe just a gift certificate so the person can buy what they actually want--people can be pretty picky about rackets; i'd like dvd videos personally, because it's something i don't usually buy for myself. but choice is worthwhile, too. maybe it's easy to give an ebay gift certificate, or one specifically for your own store?
