I had wanted to learn Ebay but kept putting it off. To many other things to do. Because of a planned move, andrepparttar 117416 necessity of getting rid of valuable stuff, I started researchingrepparttar 117417 ebooks I had about how to go about putting up an auction.

I sold more in one month, July 2002, than I had from Feb. through June, using Ebay. I also received my first affiliate commissions, several of them, from both my geocities and domain name websites that same month. It was definitely worthrepparttar 117418 time invested for my business. It can be a great traffic building for your business.

Email me at ebayqtn@gentlyused4kids.com if you have questions on Ebay auctions. I will help through emails any way I can.

7--- Don't be afraid to do a press release. I had read many articles about how they could bring you big traffic. I also read how difficult they were to get read. I worried about too much publicity, invading my privacy.

I researched and studied how to do it, and tookrepparttar 117419 plunge. It worked. The very first time. I got my press released published at PRWeb.com


8--- Write it down when you think about it. Too often, I have written an article in my mind. Then it never seems to make it to paper. Being a single mom of three, I am busy. I have found by talking into a digital recorder or tape recorder, I can be more productive. Use that waiting time. This article was generated in my mind while waiting at a bus stop with my almost 2 year old. (He was strapped safely in his stroller with a snack, of course :o)

This article promised 7 tips--- I give you 10. These are my bonus tips.

9-- Always give more than you promise. Everyone loves freebies. Put something for free on your site. It will generate more traffic. Then incorporate that freebie to generate sales. Writing articles is a great way to do this.

10-- Promote free articles. After you have written several onrepparttar 117420 same topic, you can create a free ebook. Offer it as a tool for webmasters to customize and give away for free. You can offer this customization for free or charge a fee for it. Put affiliate links in your ebook articles to promote backend sales.

86400 Seconds a Day

Written by Jordan Francis

Continued from page 1

Setting yourself a specific amount of time to do something can be very rewarding, like giving yourself one hour tonight to work on your business, instead of just working and finding yourself half awake at 3 inrepparttar morning, wondering why you are so tired.

But that's not all you should do. You should also set yourself specific goals to achieve within your time slot(s).

You need to 'cut' yourself time AND set goals to achieve within that time, to make efficient use of those valuable seconds.

One withoutrepparttar 117411 other is pointless.

Time + no set goals = Failure. Set goals + no time = Failure. Time plus set goals = Success!

If we don't have set goals and set time periods in which to do them, we would be lucky at best to get results.

Spend those 86400 seconds wisely!

Think of it as 'flex' time. Rough estimates are good, likerepparttar 117412 odd half an hour here and a couple of hours there sort of thing.

In future, set yourself specific goals which you want to attain, and give yourself a time period to do it in.

This will speed you to success!
