Auction Traffic SECRETS Sneak Peek Video #3

Tuesday 29 January 2008 @ 6:50 am

Can you find just 2 hours a week to start your own auto-pilot profits business?

If you are a busy person then you know how difficult it is to find extra time to take the necessary action to reach your online business goals.

In between work, family, home, and many other obligations it sure can be difficult.

That’s why Auction Traffic SECRETS was designed to allow you to take just 2 random hours out of the week and build a profitable and growing business.

In Sneak Peek Video #3 which just went online, you’ll see how work you do NOW can pay you this week, next week, and beyond!

Everyone can find 2 hours a week. Some simple ways are:

  • Cut out (2) hours a week of TV
  • If you can’t miss your favorite show(s), record them and skip through the commericals.
  • Wake up early.
  • Go to bed late. :-)

And with Auction Traffic SECRETS, the 2 hours each week don’t necessarily have to be at the same day or time.

When you watch the video, you’ll be AMAZED at the “Power of 2 Hours”

I explain it all in sneak peek video #3

While there you can also catch sneak video #1 and #2.

After watching this video, can you do me a favor and let me know what you think about it?

There are 2 ways.

Sneak Preview: My Most AMAZING Tool Yet!

Friday 25 January 2008 @ 5:56 pm

If you have been reading my newsletter for a while, you’ll probably agree that I’m not the type that likes to overly hype stuff up.

Sure… I’ll give an occassional “Woo Hoo” , “Zoinks”, or “Awesome!”, but I’m impressed by SUBSTANCE not Hype.

So keep that in mind as you continue with this blog post :-)

I’m about to release a super simple, easy to use tool that will help you
INSTANTLY start making money selling digital product on eBay.

C’mon, you know how much money people are making selling digital product on eBay and the web, and you’ve been dying to get in on the action!

Up until now, it’s been a technical nightmare to automate the process so someone can buy something from you at 2am in the morning, pay, and immediately download the product with ZERO work on your part.

That’s what I’m talking about!

…And you’re NOT limited to just eBay.

Every eBay seller should have their own website to sell from. But let’s face it, it’s a lot of work to set one up.

Not anymore my friend! This tool also becomes an INSTANT shopping cart where you can EASILY start selling your own ebooks, MP3s, photos, any digital media.

But Mike,

I don’t have any ebooks or other digital products to sell.

Can I make money too?

I almost forgot to mention…

I’m going to GIVE you two different Resell Rights Products that have put THOUSANDS of dollars in my pocket, so you can start selling them and making huge profits too!

But… there is an investment required. A whopping 36 cents a day.

“Can You Keep A SECRET?”  Then go take a look right now.

If you miss this, you are going to be KICKING YOURSELF for the rest of the year.  

SERIOUSLY, this page comes down Monday midnight, so go check it out before it’s too late!




Freebie Friday #151 - Dropship / Wholesale Sourcing Videos

Friday 25 January 2008 @ 10:23 am

For many years, my friends at Worldwide Brands have been the leaders in helping eBayers and eBusinesses find quality product from quality vendors.

When I went to visit their offices near Orlando Florida last winter, they gave me a tour of their in house video studio.  Man… I was drooling!

(Side note:  Row Cowie, President of Worldwide Brands was one of the producers of ”The Blair Witch Project”. The man KNOWS video!)

Beside producing the world’s best directory of hand-picked, wholesalers and dropshippers -  OneSource, they are one of the leading educators for people looking to source product for their eBay and online businesses.

This week, I recommend you check out their “Top 5 Product Sourcing Tips” videos. (Click on the link, and it’s on the right side of the page)

You may also want to subscribe to their eBay Radio shows. You’ll also see them on the same page.




eBay Training Cruise DVDs Released

Thursday 10 January 2008 @ 1:57 pm

Have you ever been on a cruise? 

Ahh… It’s a wonderful thing. Nothing like escaping the cold, grey, dark winter days at home to spend a week aboard a gorgeous luxury cruiseship.

There is something about taking a cruise that is just sooo…. relaxing. You have time to sit, relax, and enjoy great conversation.

…And don’t forget all that delicious food! :-)

If you think a cruise is a great fun vacation, try mixing it with learning at the same time!

That’s what I did when I organized the world’s first eBay training cruise. People flew thousands of miles, and spent thousands of dollars to grab their spot.

Some of you reading this were there LIVE (and loving every minute of it! :-) )

Unfortunately, some reading this wanted to go, but just couldn’t. :-(

Even others had to be turned away (and have their deposits refunded) because the CRUISE WAS COMPLETELY SOLD-OUT with no more room aboard! That REALLY stunk! :-( 

It was AN INCREDIBLE event and week of INSIDER eBay training. The instructors were Tim Knox, Jim Cockrum, & myself.

Now… don’t get me wrong… I LOVE Tim & Jim, but chances are if you try calling them, or emailing them, you’re gonna have a VERY tough time getting a response. Hey, they’re busy guys, and they’re trying to do a million things in a busy day just like you.

But trap these two powerhouses on a cruiseship for a week (with no internet or phone to allow them to work) and POOF… they suddenly become the most approachable guys in the world. Yep… the water and sunshine does that to ya! ;-)

AND… when the three of us got together as a panel to answer the attendee’s questions… WOW, it was fantastic.  The experience, ideas, and personal insight that came from those sessions was INCREDIBLE.

At last you can experience it for yourself in the comfort of your own home(without the sea-sickness) 

Not only that, but by claiming your copy of the training, you can SAVE 80% off the cost!

We’ve put together a bunch of free video samples.

So… What Do You Think?

Saturday 5 January 2008 @ 10:09 am

Ack!!!  I’ve gotta spill my guts about this.

I did something REALLY dumb.

But… instead of hiding it, I’m going to embarass myself in order to help you avoid making the same mistake that I did.

I’ll start at the beginning (which Mary Poppins is a very good place to start :-))

This eBay seller’s BLOG is very popular and get’s a lot of visitors.

Yet it’s always BUGGED ME BIG-TIME that no-one EVER left comments on the blog. You see at the bottom of each entry there is a link that you can click on to let me and others know what you thought about the post.

Another way to leave a comment is to click on the stars that appear at the top of each posting. You can rate the quality of the information by clicking 1 star (Yuck!)  to 5 stars (Woo Hoo!) 

So I know I was getting a lot of traffic but no comments.  But I could leave a comment no problem.

Sigh… So here I am taking time to find great Freebie Fridays, answer questions, give advice, and do what I can to help others and no-one can take 30 seconds to say something like “Great Job Mike!” or “I love this idea!”

It really didn’t sit right with me. I visit other BLOGS that have tons of comments. I must confess that I have been a tad bit jealous.

On several occassions, I tried leaving a comment and it worked fine. I figured people just didn’t want to leave a comment.

Think about this: How would YOU feel if you spent houts preparing something special for tens of thousands of people and no-one took even a few moments to say “Thanks!”

Fortunately, on occassion some would take the time to send an email or even a quick phonecall to thank me for the help. That REALLY was awesome, and has encouraged me to keep going! (Thanks Guys & Gals!)

Man Mike You Blew It This Time! (AKA The Dumb Part)

Then last week I get an email from a reader who tells me that when she tried to leave a comment she received the message:

“Sorry, but your comment has been flagged by the spam filter running on this blog: this might be an error, in which case all apologies. Your comment will be presented to the blog admin who will be able to restore it immediately. You may want to contact the blog admin via e-mail to notify him.” 

The problem? I was never notified!! The comments just disappeared.

Ack!  I had installed SPAM filtering software that stopped ALL COMMENTS!

It seems that when I tried to leave a comment, my BLOG recognized me as the administrator and would let ME leave a comment BUT no-one else!! Kind of like the over zealous watch dog that bites everyone.

Duhhhhhh!!!!!

So when I had my programmer (who happens to be many time zones away) try posting a comment, he had the same problem.

Oh Stink! It took about 20 minutes to fix the problem and get commenting going.  Ouch, I know commenting has worked for a LONG time!

Sooooooo…   If you have taken the time to post a comment in the past, then  I APOLOGIZE TO YOU! Here you’ve taken some of your valuable time to leave a comment and YOU get no thanks or recognition. 

I’m sorry, and I’m disciplined that SPAM filter by putting out to pasture and replacing him with someone who can do the job right! :-)

The moral of the story is:

  1. Trust your gut instinct!  I should have asked someone to test the commenting after installing the SPAM plugin.
  2. Test, test, test everything.

So my dear reader. Feel free to leave as many comments as you like, and click on those stars to let me (and others) know the value of each post, and to leave any other comments to help the many others who also benefit from this blog.

Thanks!

..Mike




91 Common Everyday Items That Bring Huge Profits on eBay!

Friday 4 January 2008 @ 9:36 am

This week’s Freebie Friday  is a very interesting ebook that I recently received from my buddy Scott Foster.

For a limited time he is allowing me to give away the instant-download, (ebook version) of his newest book to my customers and subscribers as a special gift.

It’s called, “91 Common Everyday Items that Bring Huge Profits on eBay!”

I just checked it out myself and I have to tell you, this eye-opening ebook has more value then most PAID ebooks you find on the market today. I promise you’ve NEVER seen anything like it before.

It shows common items that have sold on eBay for big buckos!

When I was showing it to my wife Camille, we both simultaneously shouted out “No WAY!” when we saw an 8 Track Tape Player that sold for $480.00. Zoinks! 

When you read this, you’ll probably have a bunch of your own “No WAY!” moments! :-)

You could have hundreds (even thousands) of dollars just laying around in your garage or attic — get your copy of this valuable report right now…
