    If it is an online business I want to know which traffic sources generate the most business. If it is an offline business I would want to know what brings people in the door and keeps them coming back.

    The best tip I can give entrepreneurs is to never give up. A large percentage of entrepreneur give up once the road becomes bumpy. It is critical to keep pushing. :)

    it is also spend money to earn money - cash back advertising.

    you need good traffic resources. Just keep on testing free advertising sources track the results. I would recommend proffesional clicks trackers for that.

    So track clicks in free advertising sources - that check where you could upgrade to get more exposure.

    I know one well technique for Free classified ads sites that I am using for my business.

    It works and it make money.

    I have some suggestions for you.

    1)Use SEO to get your homepage to rank for the search phrase "ebay alternative". People searching for that phrase are in your target market.
    2)Add a huge graphic to your homepage that highlights your unique selling proposition. After I visited your website it was unclear to me why I should bother with it at all. (I am not saying this to be mean. I am being honest.)
    3)Your website is lacking social proof. There aren't many sellers. There aren't many items in that list on the left. If a seller finds your website, they are going to think to themselves that they are not very likely to sell much on there. You need to focus on getting more sellers first. Maybe that means you take the site down temporarily and build up a team of willing sellers before relaunching. You might need to bribe those sellers somehow. You might need to make it clear to them that the website will only take off if you can get enough of them to participate.
    4)Add a blog to your website where you write articles that talk about why your auction site is a better alternative to Ebay.
    5)Make a list of the top selling items on Ebay. Then go seek out people one at a time who sell those products. Make a case to get them to list on your website as well. Then focus your efforts using SEO to get those popular item auctions to show up for common search terms related to them. You need products that are really popular. That will get you more traffic.
    6)Instead of taking on a huge project like this by yourself, (taking on Ebay is no small task) you should assemble a team of people to assist you in this launch. This particular niche is a very (very) difficult market to crack.
