URGENT NEWS For All Ebay Users:
As of Monday, March 31st, eBay will no longer allow
anyone to sell digital products through an eBay auction
or through an eBay Buy It Now system. Instead, they
are going to require you to sell ALL digital products
as “Classified Ads”.
You can read the full news story at:
Read below to see what this means to you if you are
either an eBay seller or an eBay buyer!
On March 24th, eBay banned all downloadable digital products from their system.
Although this is REALLY big news that is URGENT, I’m only going to talk about it here for a minute as I have an urgent solution to the issue that I want to share with you …
eBay’s press release claims that the reason was to protect their feedback system. (I think that’s a lame excuse.)
So instead, they’re going to allow sellers to provide downloadable products through Ads where sales are not processed through eBay which is certain to cause even greater problems for buyers.
What does this mean to you?
If you’re an eBay Buyer, this means that you’ll no longer be able to go to eBay and find cheap resale rights ebooks. You’ll probably have to pay a LOT more for your business inventory if you resold them.
If you’re an eBay Seller, this means that you are no longer going to be able to use eBay as a method for building large lists of bu’yers in your niche who are interested in your back end offer.
Sure, you might be able to use the Classified Ads as eBay themselves recommends. But even eBay points out that system is only meant for lead generation — not for pr’ofit generation!
For some, this will mean they will no longer get thousands of new buyers on their lists each month. This will result in tens of thousands in lost revenue.
Many of the big names in marketing are even likely to be affected by this decision!
This is BIG news that just about everybody will be talking about for the rest of this week and even into next. So I’m not going to bore you with details
here (feel free to talk about it on my blog in your comments).
What I want to talk about today is how this change will affect you and other entrepreneurs and what you can do IMMEDIATELY to protect your income!
What I have to tell you applies to you even if you’ve never stepped foot on eBay but are still trying to get your business off the ground.
This also applies to you if you’ve got a business already, but your revenues aren’t nearly what you’d like them to be.
In other words, if you’re using the internet to build your business in any way, LISTEN UP !
Liz Tomey, her husband, and their son left a few hours ago and I have SO much to share with you as a result of their visit!
But that’s going to have to wait until my next email because something has come up that is even MORE urgent and it just cannot wait even a few hours …
Read on to find out WHY it’s so important and WHAT makes me bring the subject up today …
A new era is coming. Right Now…
In fact, we’re smack dab in the middle of it at this very moment.
Do you want to put your ads in front of a crown of more than 100 Million?
Do you want to learn completely different, new and fun marketing methods to bring in more income weekly without spending a single cent on advertising?
Do you want to learn a method for building a list of people who WANT to hear your message?
What i said above is very possible with the new era - the era of Web 2.0.
I’ve been having a total BLAST this week with Liz Tomey, her husband, Jamie, and their 5 year old son, Logan.
I can’t say that we got a lot accomplished (although we did!), but what I can say is that we all learned SOOOO much this week!
All day, every day, no matter what subject we were on, we somehow got back to the topic of marketing. That’s what happens when your friends are also your peers in your business.
When talking about marketing, there’s one topic more than any other that kept coming up over and over again …
Can you guess what it is?
… TRAFFIC !
No matter what cool marketing strategy we happened to be focusing on, without TRAFFIC, there would be no sales.
We’ve talked about every type of traffic strategy this week from Joint Ventures to AdWords to article marketing to social media and web 2.0.
For about the next 9 days, I’m going to be a bit quiet. It’s not because I’m not interested in continiung to help you build your business. (If anything, I’m more interested than EVER!)
It’s because I’m spending the next 9 days with Liz Tomey, her husband Jamie, and their 5 year old son, Logan!
Yesterday, all of us actually took a much deserved day off and spent it on the beach at Sanibel Island building sand castles and picking up sea shells. Talk about a GREAT day!
Today, though, it’s back to “nose to the grindstone”!
“Task Master Liz” will be cracking the whip on Jamie and I as we put together a complete 12 week coaching program on Joint Ventures in only a few days!
The plan for the program is AMAZING! I can’t wait until I can share the details with you in a few weeks!
I can’t begin to tell you how much I’m enjoying spending this time with Liz and Jamie (and Logan, too!).
Although yesterday was a ‘vacation day’ for us, we did what you would expect any 2 leading marketers to do while sitting on the beach, basking in the sun …
We talked MARKETING!
Liz and I didn’t start out as friends, though.
We started out as Joint Venture Partners!
I just had one of the biggest “AH-HA” moments that I’ve
had in a LONG time!
What gave me this “Ah-Ha” moment was watching a
magician’s act while sitting at dinner last night.
Actually, it wasn’t just the act. It was thinking back
to past conversations that I’ve had with marketing
extraordinaire, Ben Mack.
Ben actually got his start back in college as a
Magician. In fact, he’s one of the most amazing
Magician’s I’ve ever seen!
When you talk to Ben, when you hear him on teleconferences,
and when you read his info products, you’ll often times
hear him talking about his magic and applying lessons he
learned back then to marketing.
It wasn’t until I was watching this kid’s magic act last
night that the full impact of Ben’s lessons hit me! And
let me tell you, they hit me HARD!
One of my good friends and a true marketing GENIUS, Ben Mack, started out as a magician back in his college days.
If you’ve ever heard Ben on a teleconference, he often times recounts his time as a magician. Although I’ve heard his stories many times, it wasn’t until yesterday when I met a young magician at a restaurant, that I fully understood that successful magic is ALL about marketing!
Now I understand how Ben got to be such a brilliant marketer!
No joke! If you look at ANY successful Magician, it was the Magician’s MARKETING that made him such a success and caused you to remember him in the first place!
I’m not talking about the Magician’s advertising. That’s another story altogether.
What I’m talking about is the marketing that happens during the act itself. And what I’m saying is that for every successful Magician, it was the MARKETING and not the tricks themselves, that made them a hit!
It blew my mind when I realized this, just like I’m sure that it’s blowing yours right now!
Let me tell you about this young Magician that I met so that you can see what I mean and so that you can learn how being a good Magician can also make you a great marketer …
If you’ve been reading my blogs or newsletters for awhile,
You know that I just love dimesales! They’re a great
way to get quality information at a great price.
Today, a brand new site launched and they’re having a
Grand Opening Special! To make it even better, the
package contains 2 products on one of my very favorite,
most profitable topics …
Working with AFFILIATES in your business!
This isn’t about selling products as an affiliate
yourself. It’s about building affiliates who will sell
Why is this such a favorite topic of mine and how can
you profit from it?
After last night’s call on Info Products, I got several
emails asking me WHY so many marketers put so much
emphasis on info products.
Each one of these messages asked me if there was some
other way to be equally profitable in your business.
The answer is a resounding YES !
In fact, one of my mentors and good friends is probably
one of the most profitable marketers around. His
business has absolutely NOTHING at all to do with info
In fact, he’s working on his very first information
product right now and he’s been in this business for
Let me share with you one little secret …
