Marketing Set Back
I was choosing material for writing my eBay articles
from the reports on the "eBay millionaire Treasure
Chest" I ran into a problem. When I tried to cut
and paste part of a report I wanted to use for
my first article, it didn't work. I tried to do it with
several other reports and I got the same results.
I thought it was going to be so easy and quick to do
my articles with this cut and paste method.
guess the publishers of these e books wanted to keep
people from stealing parts of their e books or
reports and doing exactly what I was trying to
do. But since I own the license to all of the
info on the CD-Rom I wasn't stealing, I was using
part of what I already owned to write some articles
to promote the product itself.
I will have to find another way to produce my articles.
I can still use parts of the e books and reports to
write my articles, but it will call for doing a little
I decided to do to solve this problem is use my screen
reader and my little digital recorder to capture the
information I need to get my articles completed. Regardless
to what business you are in, there are always problems
to contend with. But the main thing to remember
is when you run into a brick wall, there is usually
a way over, under or around it. It will take me longer
to complete my articles but I can still get it done.
Article writing Strategy - Part Four
I was going through some of the ebooks and reports on
the "eBay millionaire Treasure Chest"
CD-ROM looking for ideas and subjects that might be
of interest to people wanting to learn more about
selling on eBay, I got another idea.
I'm not an eBay expert I wanted to position myself as
a researcher providing information to improve their
chances of making money with their eBay auctions.
I also want to sell them the reprint rights to the info
products on the "eBay millionaire Treasure Chest".
So, my idea is to build the subjects of my articles
around some of the info products on the CD.
thing that all of the ebooks and reports on the CD-Rom
have in common is links.
the info products all provide helpful links to provide
the reader with resources to help them with more information
on what ever the ebook or report was about. What
I could do is write several articles reviewing
these sites and even put together a little directory,
giving it some compelling title like: "Secret Web
Sites That Can Make You An Instant eBay Power Seller!"
I could offer it as a Free gift to the readers
of my articles and all I would be doing is using
the information that is already available to me on the
we'll take a look at how easy this little project could
for eBay Articles
get started with my first idea of creating articles
based on the links in the eBay ebooks and reports, I
went through some of the info products just gathering
would be the first step in formulating a strategy for
writing the articles. I could just take the first ten
or twelve links that I came across, go to that web site,
get a little information on the service that was offered
and then put together an article just pretty much what
was stated on the home page of the web site.
I know that it would be better to provide the reader
of the article with in depth rather than general information
a reader could easily find by reading other articles
on that subject.
example one of the most popular info products related
to auction sites are wholesale and drop ship sources.
There are several of these types of info products on
the "eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest" CD-ROM.
The first one I looked at was an eight page directory
that listed wholesale sources which listed the web site
and a brief listing of what products were being offered.
I could write a short article about this directory but
I wouldn't have much to work with. I could also go to
some of the web sites in the directory and add to the
descriptions of some of the products and services. However,
this would be information that could be found
in just about any article written on this subject, I
could probably get by with doing the article this way
but what I want to do is give the reader of the article
information that may not be very well known.
I'm not an eBay expert, I need to decide how I was going
to go about doing this...
Article Marketing Strategy - Part 5
I continued to look for info. products on wholesale
and drop ship sources I found a directory called "Buy
Anything Wholesale" This is a forty page directory
that provided a lot more information about buying wholesale.
was information that would be of interest to people
who wanted to know more about how to get the best results
using wholesale sources such as:
How to get the lowest prices by dealing directly with
the manufacturer of the product
How to avoid dealing with middle men
How to get your products for up to 80%below wholesale
How to deal with suppliers in order to get the best
Learning how to find and deal with back door suppliers
with out needing a business license
How to get started with a zero budget
could expand on these topics by getting the information
directly from the ebook and write a good, informative
directory also included information on how you can create
your own wholesale listings in under ten minutes.
subject of interest to people who want to learn more
about buying wholesale would be things to watch out
for, like what to do when a supplier won't give you
sample products to offer to potential customers. It's
also important to know how to find a reliable drop shipper.
You want to be sure when you make a sale that your customer
receives the product and it reaches them in a timely
manner. There's also information in this directory on
how you can avoid having to purchase a large minimum
is a lot of good information to work with in this directory
to create several good articles on the subject of wholesale
and drop ship products to sell on eBay.
again, in writing these articles what I want to do is
promote the info products on the "eBay Millionaire
Treasure Chest" CD-ROM. And by writing about some
of the topics in the reports and ebooks on the CD-ROM
it gives me the opportunity to indirectly promote the
entire "eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest" CD-ROM.
