Today’s Fun Freebie Friday is an easy way to send people to all your current eBay auctions.
Normally, you would have to type in or give someone a huge url for them to see your current auctions and likely, they would misspell something and miss your auctions.
Not any longer!
AuctionTNT allows you to type in any seller’s eBay ID and view all the auctions the seller has currently listed.
It’s as easy as typing: eBayID.AuctionTNT.com
For example, one of the top sport automotive sellers on eBay is ExcellAutoGroup. So to view all their auctions you would type into your browser: ExcellAutoGroup.AuctionTNT.com
This is another convenient feature supplied by AuctionTNT, my new site that offers tools for exploding your eBay profits.
Announcement Makers, a brand-new FAME, and more add to the benefits of AuctionTNT! You NEED these tools!
Recently I got an email from one of my readers. This is what it said:
Where can I get a system for selling info on eBay? I know I need an autoresponder and a method of sending the info after payment by PayPal, etc. Knowing what I need and knowing how to put it together are not the same!
Dale, you hit the nail on the head with your last sentence above! Too many Internet Marketers or eBay gurus just give you SOME of the information, and fewer still tell you actually how to do it.
You may have heard me mention eBay PowerSeller John Thornhill eBay ID (planetsms) before. He makes his living selling eBooks on eBay. He has always invited people to check out his eBay ID (planetsms ) - then they could see for themselves that he does Walk the Walk because he was fed up of those who just Talk the Talk but do not actually help people!
Right now he’s giving away his “90-Day Powerseller Challenge” e-Book for free!
He gives you the step-by-step instructions how to do what he did - become THE eBay Digital Products Master.
How would you like to save $10 (or get free shipping) on your next online purchase?
Would you like to do that over and over again?
Here’s the details:
Shopping online - and saving! - couldn’t be more rewarding
Shop: Simply find a merchant in our directory of over 1,000 of the BEST online stores, and shop as you normally would.
Save: If you ever pay a shipping charge, you can get cash-back, up to $500 per year! These are members-only rebates you can’t get anywhere else!
Peace of mind: All of your purchases are covered by our Complete Price Protection program, FREE Double Warranty, and more!
Like what you hear?
AuctionBytes reports, “eBay and eBay Canada are holding a 1-day promotion where the insertion fees for auction-style and fixed-price listings are waived when sellers purchase Gallery and list with a starting price of $9.99 or less.”
Is it worth it to go nuts listing everything and the kitchen sink for a promotion like this?
We’ve discussed it in the past.
Over the weekend I got an email from one of my readers. This is what it said:
Would like to know where to get quality wearing apparel - handbags, shoes, jewelry, housewares, furniture, etc. from a dropshipper.
Patricia, I’ve got just the source for you!
OneSource! That’s right, again, I have to recommend OneSource. In fact, they are the ONLY one I recommend for this area of need.
Why do I keep recommending them? It’s not because there’s no one else out there. Rather, they are THE BEST!
And I’m not just talking about Dropshippers.
They also focus on light bulk wholesalers for those that need small amounts of wholesale items, and bulk wholesalers for those who can take product in larger amounts. They also include liquidators and importers!
OneSource hand-checks out every company that they supply to you.
I’ve made a video that gives you an inside peak of their website that can be viewed here.
They are not to be missed!
I’ve always said eBay is the easiest way to get started making money online. But it’s not the only way.
You shouldn’t stop working your eBay business, but you also shouldn’t have all your eggs in one basket.
A natural progression in your stay-at-home business is to start setting up multiple streams of income.
One excellent source of income is Affiliate Programs, where you get paid for promoting other people’s products.
You don’t stock these items, you don’t ship these items, you don’t answer customer service emails about these items.
You just promote them and, when someone buys, you make a commission on the sale.
That’s all that is involved!
Our Freebie Friday this week is a 21-page training manual to help you get started with affiliate programs and pay-per-click advertising.
This is not some involved, only for the technically advanced, manual. Rather, it’s set up for the beginner to learn how affiliate marketing works, and for the intermediate person who wants to make sure they are doing things the right way.
Recently I got an email from one of my readers. This is what it said:
I have been selling on eBay for a little over a year now and I’m not doing too bad considering I have no idea how to advertise my website online. I know what I need to do and what kind of advertising will work, but I don’t know where to find these places and what to do with it once I get there. I am seriously frustrated.
Marnie, I know it can be overwhelming when you (1) get a ton of information and don’t know what to do with it, or (2) get that information in a form that doesn’t work best for you. (Marnie said later in her letter that she learns best when someone shows her how to do something, rather than reading about it.)
I’ve got something that will help you in the advertising part of your question.
I’ve recommended pay-per-click as the fast and easy way to start getting traffic to your website/aBay Store. But oftentimes, it’s complicated to know what to do.
Here is where Jeremy Palmer comes in. He created free videos that offer step-by-step solutions to get you set up in Google AdWords, MSN AdCenter, and Yahoo Search Marketing.
Jeremy walks you through signing up, setting up campaigns, doing keyword research, and finally running and tweaking that campaign.
Additionally, when you go to his site, you will see how you can get $50 ad credits for Yahoo and MSN, thus making your risk $0.
Marnie, you can’t go wrong here.
I don’t know about you, but I have trouble sometimes keeping track of where I’ve put things and staying organized.
Usually it’s not my fault. If my employee Dan would just leave things where I put them, I wouldn’t have this problem.
The same problem exists when I come across interesting items online and I try to remember where I found them. (Again, not my fault, although I’m not sure how I can justify this!)
I found this cool tool that helps me keep track of things I find online. We have begun using this free software in my office, and it has helped tremendously!
You can easily copy the text, pictures, or even entire web pages into a virtual notebook. Everything is searchable by date, keyword, or even category (to further organize your notes!)
I know that if I try to copy and paste web pages into some other software tools, things appear screwy. Not so with EverNote!
I use it multiple times a day to keep track of cool things I come across.
I love it, and I think you will too!
