Earlier this week I received an email from Robin, a newsletter reader who has been subscribed for years.
She said that she had upgraded to a new computer and had lost the program that allows you to print whatever is on your screen.
That made me think.
How many of my readers have joined the PlatinumPowerSeller.com Newsletter list within the last year or so and don’t know anything about this awesome program?
PrintKey2000 is what I want to share with you today as the Fun Freebie Friday.
What can PrintKey2000 do?
- Take a snapshot of your computer screen. You can choose the entire screen, just an individual window, or define your own area to capture.
- Once you capture the screen, you can either print it, copy it the clipboard (So it can be pasted into another document), or save it to to a file. The file can be a BMP, GIF, JPG, ICO, EMF, WMF type.
I use this tool ALL the time. Let me give some examples:
- You can use it to take measurements on the screen. Ever see a table or a web page and wonder how many pixels wide it is? Or, maybe you want to measure just a portion of a picture? Select the rectangle function, and click on one of the corners. As you move your mouse around, the program draws a rubber band window which also shows the width and height measured in pixels.
- When I notice a spelling error or other problem on one of my web pages, I’ll print a copy to my printer and circle the mistake and write FIX on the paper. Then I put it aside for later.
- Quite often I will conference with people using an instant messenger or email. When I need to show them something, I’ll use the rectangle tool to grab the section I need, save it as a JPEG file and then send it to the person. Takes about 30 seconds and saves a ton of time!
- Some ebooks lock out the ability to print them. You can use this tool to print out anything you can see on the screen.
- You can even capture “snapshots” of an on screen movie or Flash movie file.
The tool is VERY easy to use.
Anytime you want it to grab a snapshot, you simply click the PrtScrn (Print Screen) button on your keyboard. You’ll hear a noise like a camera shutter telling you it captured the screen. (You can turn the sound off if you prefer)
There are a ton of options you can also configure.
The main thing is that the program is easy to use and works great.
I use this tool multiple times everyday. No doubt, you’ll be glad to have it too!
How would you like to learn how to make money using eBay without having to ship a single product?
With eBay getting about a “gazillion” visitors each and every day, that’s a LOT of traffic.
99.996% of eBay people have no idea that you can turn that traffic into cash.
That’s what Auction Traffic SECRETS teaches you to do. It is the number one package in THE WORLD on this topic!
A while ago the package was retired since I have zero time to promote it (even thought it’s GREAT training). There is simply tooooo much going on and I’m already spread as thin as butter on bread.
That hasn’t changed, but I gave a great solution to some problems:
Problem #1: How to market the training when I have no spare time to do so?
Solution: PayDotcom.com is a site where affiliates go to find packages to promote. I just finished posting the training on PayDotCom. Now, affiliates can do all the marketing for me!
Problem #2: In the past, some readers asked if they could get a discounted price on the Video CD training by not including all of the BONUSES.
Solution: This just became available. You won’t believe what a great deal it is!
Problem #3: There are MANY products for sale on PayDotCom. How does a new seller grab the attention of affiliates so they will promote it?
Solution: PayDotcom gives a score to each product. The higher the score the better. It’s kinda like a hit record. People want to buy a hit record. Affiliates want to promote a hit product. Each time the product is sold, the score goes up.
So, I’m going to help jump start things. ;-) If I get the ball rolling with this training on PayDotCom, it will grab the attention of other affiliates and they’ll start promoting it too.
For The Next Four Days (Friday until Midnight Monday) You’ll Get Some Great BONUSES.
When you visit the site, you’ll be able to watch 5 FREE Training Videos explaining the entire training.
But remember, the bonuses are only included until MIDNIGHT Monday October 27, 2008.
Mike Takes Care Of His Students.
If you recently claimed your Auction Traffic SECRETS training and would like one of the bonuses above, click here to drop me an email, and I’ll take good care of you, and set you up. :-) Be sure to include a copy of your receipt so I know which BONUS you want, and where to send it.
Enjoy your weekend,
P.S. Don’t forget that the BONUSES disappear come Monday Midnight, so go check it out now..

SECRET Powerseller Wholesale Sources
In this ebook I share the personal sources where I bought over $200,000 of product that I resold on eBay for MASSIVE profits.
This isn’t some made up trash list.
I spill my guts on my SECRET sources that built my company.
It’s included with your training CD.
There’s a whole lot more, so instead of repeating it again,
P.S. You won’t believe the crazy low price for this training!
Making money on the web is all about TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC, & TRAFFIC.
For most people trying to promote their own website, getting visitor traffic stops many in their tracks.
No Traffic = No Money!
Last night I just finished reading a guide that teaches how to make affiliate cash without risky PPC & complicated SEO techniques.
It’s 65 pages of pure traffic technique meat, no fluff at all.
I love the author’s style of writing. He’s “cut to the chase”, “don’t mess around”, “get to the point”, “this is step by step how you do it”.
He shares multiple no-cost, proven methods that he personally successfully uses to:
1) Find & select affiliate products to promote.
2) Get traffic to your offers using free and low-cost techniques.
3) How to make more money then others who are marketing the same product (Very sneaky!)
Now part of this is so cutting edge that some of what he discusses is …. let’s say controversial.
But no problem, there are still many other non-controversial powerful and easy methods to use.
The great thing about setting up affiliate marketing sites is that it brings profits in on auto-pilot. You simply set up the first program, make money, set up the second program, and make more money. Set up … well you get the idea!
Just one of these techniques is worth hundreds of dollars, but check this out…
AND you get a “Make 20 Times Your Investment Back Within 60 Days or Less or Owe Nothing” money-back guarantee.
This is seriously one of the best ebooks about getting traffic that I’ve EVER read, and I’ve read a ton of them.
If I paid ninety seven dollars for it I think it would still be a fantastic investment.
WARNING!!! You won’t be able to put this ebook down until you read it cover to cover.
Last night, my wife Camille was out and I was watching the kids. I was trying to hold the baby and feed her a bottle with one hand while holding the printed out ebook in my other hand. You would have laughed if you could have seen it.
There are a bunch of techniques that you can IMMEDIATELY start using with ZERO cost.
Here is what you need to do:
2) Print it out.
3) Bring it to the beach, barbecue, or wherever you’re spending your weekend and read it there.
It’s REALLY that good!
Get it before the price goes up 10X, you’ll be glad you did.
Talk to you soon,
P.S. I forgot to mention, I’m blown away by the package already and I didn’t even get a chance to watch the 24 minute training video or even look at the other BONUSES yet.
After getting so many positive reviews about Instant Website Empire, I wanted to find a way to get it into the hands of more people who want to build their own niche websites (but have the work already done!)
So, I figured if I could get the training delivered at a lower investment then more people would be able to gain access.
So I made an online version.
Pheww… I didn’t know how much work that was going to be!
You see the DVD comes with over 2 GIGABYTES of website HTML, graphics, photoshop files, headers, hand written articles, 3 hours of video, just a ton of stuff.
The online version contains everything that the DVD version does. You still get 100 niche websites with 5 articles each, all the graphics, HTML for HyperVRE, XSitePro, PhpBB, Wordpress, etc…
You get the WORKS!
But since there is no DVD, packaging, postage, printing, duplication, and all the “fun” stuff that goes with shipping a physical product, we’ve DRAMATICALLY lowered your investment to get started building your own collection of money-making niche websites.
Here is what you need to do:
2) Make sure you are sitting down.
3) Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and see the fantastic offer. I’ll give you a hint. You can buy a completed website with all the graphics, HTML, articles, and 3 hours of how to videos for less than the price of a candy bar.
4) A fair piece of warning. The introductory price is VERY temporary, so don’t hesitate.
If you have been looking for a way to quickly and easily setup some websites and have them bring you an income TOTALLY HANDS OFF, then you have to check this out.
I just heard of a great way of receiving training from a very successful internet marketer, Russell Brunson.
His goal is to help his students earn over $100 million dollars THIS year!
Yes, he has built a multi-million dollar a year business.
But to be able to teach others how to start a successful online business… that’s a completely different can of worms.
His video (that I’ll tell you about in a minute) briefly interviews some of his very successful students.
What’s great is that he is offering great training, and helping out a charity that is accomplishing a lot of good at the same time.
And check THIS out…
The best student who wins the challenge will get a brand spankin’ new Corvette that Russell will personally drive to your house.
Wouldn’t that be the coolest thing!
He’s put together a great video that explains it all. I’m not sure what the maximum number of students are, so you’ll want to go check it out right away.
One question I sometimes am asked is where can I host my photos for eBay, Craig’s list, or other needs.
While I think your best option is become an AuctionTNT member so you’ll have access to photo hosting, audio hosting, video hosting, picture galleries, picture slideshows, and so on, I still wanted to share another option with you.
Nikon (yea, the camera people) have a site where you can store up to 2 Gig of photos that they’ll host for you.
Click the above banner for more info.
Note.. when you go to the page, you’ll need to click on the giant picture to signup.
With the tough economic times, being able to generate some quick cash can sure be a handy skill to have!
I’m going to share with you a very simple technique that most people can use to do this.
This morning my wife came in the office with a box to weigh. We have a small postage scale in my office, and a bigger package scale in the basement.
She had a good size box in her hands and she couldn’t help but share the story on it.
About a month ago, we went to a big shopping mall near us.
My wife always goes and checks out P*tt*ry B*rn. (C’mon, you can figure out which store I’m talkin’ about )
This method will also work with other stores.
Here’s the scoop about P*tt*ry B*rn…
Their items are always in demand, but they also get retired after being sold for a while, which means they are in demand even more, since now they are collectibles!
Very often these items will sell at retail or ABOVE on eBay.
Why? I think one reason might be that a good number of people don’t have one of the stores nearby.
So my wife simply goes and checks out their clearance items.
*** NOTE: Do NOT tell the salesperson you are looking for product to resell on eBay. They CAN and WILL refuse to sell you merchandise if you do. ****
So just be cool about things as you look around.
Not sure if the item will sell on eBay?
Here’s what you do…
If you have a pad and paper, jot down the item name, regular price, and clearance price for a bunch of items.
Leave the store and if you have a cell phone with browser, look up the average sell value on eBay. Otherwise, call your family or friend who’s in front of the computer and have them look it up on eBay.
Hint to husbands. This is a great way to avoid the dreaded shopping mall trip. Tell your wife that you’ll be sitting by the phone waiting to look up the selling prices for her!
Figure out which items are worth your while, and go buy back to the store to buy those treasures.
Remember: Depending on the store, you usually have 10-30 days to return the product for a refund. So if for some reason it doesn’t sell, you can get your money back. Just make sure you understand that store’s return policy. Some stores only give store credit and not cash or credit card refunds, so be sure to double check.
This is a real simple idea, but my wife and I do this whenever we go shopping (which we hate doing). We do this to make a game out of it.
“Let’s pay for this item by using profits made from selling other store items on eBay!”
So on that one trip, my wife bought almost $300 of clearance items. She expects to get about $1000 for them on eBay, which should work out to $600 or $700 profit for a few hours work.
We also like to do this with T*ys-R-*s. (Look at the pricier baby stuff like car seats and strollers!)
On that night, my wife was looking for bed spread for my son’s new room. They normally cost over $180 in the catalog.
They had 2 of them for $24 each. She kept one and the other sold for $76 on eBay. So she made $50 profit and got my son’s for FREE!
What a fun game!
For items that are not easy to ship, you may want to try using CraigsList.com to find a local buyer.
Again, remember to save your receipt to get a refund if the item doesn’t sell.
Well, hope that helps you put a few bucks in your pocket.
