    Typically a website should sell to 1% off all website visitors, so if you get 100 visits a day you should get one sale in that day.

    My advice would be to build a clean, user friendly and link worthy website, focus your efforts towards SEO/social optimisation and then consider conversion rate optimisation and run split tests to see what works best. You can use goals in Analytics to see which keywords are converting as well.

    As a starting block you may also want to consider a small investment into Adwords to find some great keywords for your SEO campaign.

    Fergal has left a great comment above about ebay and Google Analytics is free as well.
