Do you have what it takes to be an e-entrepreneur?

These days, it seems like everyone wants to work
from home and make money on the Internet. But
before you even turn on your computer, the first
question you have to ask yourself is whether
you’re cut out for this kind of work.

The fact is, building a home-based business isn’t
for everyone. Some people like the commute. They
really do enjoy having a boss who tells them what
to do, and they like the routine of working
nine-to-five for an ordinary salary that can
barely pay the mortgage. Personally, I think
they’re nuts.

More reasonably, there are people who are
concerned about the risk of starting up their own
business. They’re not sure it’s worth the
investment of time and money, and they’re scared
of the responsibility that comes with running
their own company. They wonder if there is
another way to escape the rat race.

I’m sure there is. You could win the lottery or
wait for your Aunt Sue to keel over and leave you
her condo. Or maybe you could sit down with a pen
and paper and draw the blueprint for "The Next
Big Thing". Anything can happen... Right?

For me, what happened was creating a successful,
self-running Internet marketing system. It didn’t
happen without effort. It didn’t happen without
at least some initial investment of both time and
money and, of course, it doesn’t happen now
without me making sure that the taxes are filed
and the paperwork is done. But it happened.

I’m my own boss. I work from home according to my
own schedule and I get to pocket all the cash my
business makes. If you’re prepared to give an
e-business the time, the work and the money it
needs to get started and get growing, it can
happen for you too.

Making More Money on Ebay
Copyright © Zamzuri Zakaria

Have you ever wondered how to make more money on Ebay? How do those power sellers make thousands of dollars a month on Ebay? What encourages buyers to bid on their item? One thing that will increase your bids is to include a picture with your listing. Statistics have shown that an auction that includes at least one picture with the listing will sell 65% better and for 23% more money than the same listing without a picture. Make sure the quality of the picture you use is as high as possible. Make sure you use a scanner with a very high resolution or use a very good quality digital camera for your picture. If the picture was taken in bad lighting or is out of focus, then it will look amateurish and will not make anyone want to buy from you.

Be sure to tell your buyers up front what your expectations are from them. You should give specifics on what payment methods you will accept, what shipping methods you use, when the product will be delivered, your refund policies, and any other business practices that you have. Your buyer needs to feel comfortable buying from you since they are going to be sending money to someone that they have never met and they are most likely going to be suspicious. The best way to gain your buyer’s trust is to offer a 100% money back guarantee, no questions asked. Of course, you may get a couple of buyers that will take advantage of this, but you will lure more buyers to your product and make them want to buy from you and this will increase your sales by a whole lot.

Another way you can increase your earnings from your Ebay auction, is to check the completed items listed before you put your items up for auction. By doing this, you will be able to see the various auctions for the item that you are wanting to sell and see the different prices that they went for. You may notice a different name for some items that went for a higher amount. If you do see a trend with the items that went for more, then be sure to use it in your auction.

When you make the title for your product, leave out the words “wow” and “look”. No one searches for those words when they are looking for items and they are just a waste of space. When you are writing your items description, be as specific as possible. Try to include as much information about the item as you can fit in. Lastly, do not charge a ridiculously high shipping price. It is okay to charge a little extra for your cost on packaging and the time you take to package it, but any more than that and people will turn away from your auction.

Link Marketing Network
Copyright © Zamzuri Zakaria

Are you getting started in a network marketing program? One of the most frequently asked questions about affiliate marketing is what is an effective marketing link program. For an affiliate to ask this type of question it means that they have realized a particular key and very important requirement for the success of their affiliate program.

It does not matter what affiliate program you are talking about or thinking about, the same remains true. Without link generated traffic, your network marketing business will fail. One of the fastest and most efficient ways to gain traffic is to use links. This holds true for both short term, medium term, and long term businesses. There is no more effective traffic generation tool than good links. When you are talking about the short term, links will get you affiliate blog traffic as you climb in the search engine ranks. When you are talking about the medium term, you will get a lot of traffic coming your way from those search engines because the links will have put you up high in their ranks. In the long run, you will be getting a whole lot of traffic from your position in the search engine ranks.

You can find a lot of affiliate link programs on the internet. Some will cost you some money while others may be free. Either way, you will have to work at it. No matter how you look at it, the majority of all the successful, top high-earning affiliates are involved in some kind of affiliate link program.

You will most likely have to create at the very least 200 reciprocal links in order for your website to be considered important enough to appear in the top listings of the major search engines. However, it is not a very good idea to place all the reciprocal links on one page. One disadvantage to doing this is that if a webmaster sees a lot of links on a single page, they won’t accept reciprocal links requests from you. You will want to create a structure of pages where the links will be placed. You will need to make a new page for each theme, similar to the theme of your website.

You will also need to make one or more web pages for links to websites that contain different themes. Then you will need to create a web page that ill link to each of these pages known as a links index or directory page. Lastly, in your links index or directory page, you will want to place the title of your home page, the description of your home page, and your home page’s URL. A webmaster will use this information to place you in their links page.
