The Importance Of Comments and Replies: With Plugins To Help With Each

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting my blog.

I was hoping to have the next video of the Newbies Guide created and online by now but last week I had so many things go wrong that I just didn’t have the time to create it.

I had optimized the sales page for Ease The Squeeze With Auctions and when I uploaded it the whole page turned Chinese. There had been an error in the loading code and no matter how many times I uploaded it I couldn’t correct it. So I deleted the page and started all over again, that was 3 days taken out of my schedule, but it’s done now.

As a result of the world wide recession many people have turned to eBay to try and make money from home. Some have found success and some have found that it can be very frustrating to list items over and over on eBay without making sales. Most of us have been there and many of us have, at some point, found the eBay fees catch up and sometimes overtake our profit, which only adds to the squeeze being put on our finances.

Many people have then become disheartened and have left eBay without trying to research their market. There are various ways of researching your market on eBay to help you find items that are selling successfully. But what if I told that there is an area of eBay where people are actually queuing up for items, and telling us what those desired items are?

The Newbies GuideIt’s time to upload your website to your server (web host). While this may sound daunting, it is really simple to do and the video below shows you exactly how to carry it out.

Before we can upload the website we need to download  an FTP program, (File Transfer Protocol). There are plenty of free ones on the web, but I use (and recommend) Filezilla. It is easy to install and easy to use, but the best feature is that it is free of charge.

To be able to access your web host you will need your FTP details which are in the email that you would have received from your hosting company. If you used D9 Hosting then the email is entitled ‘New Account Information‘ and you will find the details needed in section 4.

Are You An Avid eBook Reader?


It’s Friday afternoon and here in the UK its our May Day Bank Holiday weekend, giving us an extra day off on Monday. Some people will be visiting family or friends, some going away for the weekend, some will put their feet up and relax, and some will be working as normal.

This is the age of information and with that comes information overload. Most of us have suffered it at one point or another and today I want to give you a simple tip to help overcome the dreaded info’ overload.

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog:

Have you ever wondered why it is that some people make really good money on eBay when you can not make regular sales yourself? Frustrated and banging your head against the wall trying to figure it out? If so keep reading and i will try to explain the (not so) secret to their success.

There are all sorts of people that list all sorts of items for sale on eBay. There are those that list successfully and those that list items unsuccessfully.

There could be a number of reasons for unsuccessful listings:

  • Poor sales title
  • High postage charges
  • Poor quality, or no photo of the item
  • Poor sales letter

When I write about eBay it is normally with the business seller in mind and I offer advice on how to improve listings, titles, pictures and of course sales. I also try to bring my readers all the current Business Seller news and tips etc.

Today however I have a little strategy that I hope will help everyone save some money on their next purchase on eBay, and indeed every purchase there after.

As you know, when you look for an item to buy on eBay you enter a couple of keywords, relating to the item, into the search box and then make your way through the listings.

Next time you are looking to make a purchase on eBay try this:

The Newbies GuideIn this Module we are going to create a newsletter and opt-in form for your website.

Q, Why do I need to create a newsletter in the first place?

The answer to that is quite simple: Email Marketing!

Say for example you have a website but don’t have a newsletter. You will need to drive fresh traffic to your website over and over again. Some of those visitors may (or may not) make a purchase and then leave your site. Once they have left your website the chances of them coming back is somewhat slim as there are so many other websites to choose from. Meaning that you have to keep trying to drive fresh traffic to your site, (traffic = potential customers). This can be quite difficult to achieve and you will probably give up at some point in the near future, meaning all your hard work has been for nothing. Don’t get me wrong, you need to drive traffic to your site whether you have a newsletter or not, but……

eBay and PowerSeller Policy Changes

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting my blog.

I wrote a blog post last August about eBay changing the policies over postage of items within the media categories, (books, comics, magazines, DVD’s, Music etc). eBay felt that the postage prices were putting people off of making purchases and stopped sellers charging postage in all media categories.

I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that eBay have now changed their minds and have returned to the previous policy. You can now charge postage again, however it is set to a maximum limit to stop excessive postal charges.

Although if you continue to list your Fixed Price items with free P&P they will appear higher in the search results.

Further Changes, Coming Next Month:
