Are eBay Auctions Rational or Irrational?

Wednesday 30 May 2007 @ 10:03 am

It all depends on who you ask, and what part of eBay you’re talking about!

Some commonly-held ideas in the offline auction world just don’t apply when it comes to eBay.

For example, do you think on auction with a secret reserve price would draw more bidders, or less?

David Reiley, an economist at the University of Arizona, investigated whether reserve prices in eBay auctions should be open or secret.

His findings, along with other research into the irrationality of online auctions, can be found in an article at Slate.com.

Time-Saving Free Tool!

Friday 11 May 2007 @ 12:00 am

A few weeks ago, I shared a software program that I have used for years.  I have mentioned it 2 or 3 times over the years, but I was surprised at the response I received after mentioning it again.

I thought that not many of my readers would be interested, since they probably already knew about it.

I was wrong!

In fact, 3 of my readers thanked me again and again for sharing the resource.  One of them had upgraded her computer, and couldn’t remember where she got PrintKey2000, so she was happy to have it again. (By the way, if you missed it, click here for the blog entry.)

I also had not realized how many thousands of readers have joined in the past year, and have never heard of the tools that I use daily.

So this week I’m going to share another free tool that I have recommended in the past.

It is called ShortKeys and it is a great timesaver for me.

ShortKeys is a utility that allows you to set up replacement text or paragraphs for any given number of user defined keystrokes.
ShortKeys monitors the keyboard activity and anytime a user defined keystroke combination is typed in, it will be replaced with the replacement text.

Save Time!  Automate tedious and repetitive typing. Reduce errors. Type a few characters and ShortKeys will replace them with up to 3000 keystrokes. You will be amazed how much time ShortKeys will save.

Countless Uses!  If you find yourself typing the same thing over and over again, then this product is for you.

Click here to download the free version of ShortKeys.

Tales From The Importing Farmer!

Friday 4 May 2007 @ 12:00 am

The number one question I always receive from my readers is "What should I sell on eBay?"

One good option is importing products.

Many find the thought of importing to be too scary and too complex, and that it requires too much startup cash.

When I heard about a rabbit farmer from rural North Carolina  who’s importing product to sell on eBay, I knew I had to investigate.

His name is Walter Scheu.

What a great guy!

He’s literally spent thousands of hours learning how to import items with minimal outlay of cash and minimal risk.

He was kind enough to grant me an interview and I know you will both benefit from the information and enjoy the banter between a Yankee and a southern gentleman/farmer/importer.

Walter is a good ol’ boy who tells it like it is!

A lot of great information and a lot of great laughs is what you’ll find in this week’s Fun Freebie Friday!
