WordPress + ebay = Unlimited Potential For Earnings


There is a very active community of writers and marketing geniuses that have helped me and a few other people to maximize the potential of WordPress-built blogs.Using a script called PHPbayPro, it is very easy to make quite a good living off of auctions that are posted on Ebay. You help other merchants all the while you are getting commissions for listing their goods on your sites. Take a look at a bunch of the “key” features of this program and feel free to add it to as many niche sites as you can handle. The ceiling is created by you based on how many sites you would like to maintain.

What I love about this script is that you can integrate it completely into your own theme very easily. The other solutions that I have tried (including the popular BANS script) forces you into using a very generic type theme, and most BANS stores all look very similar. I am sure it would be very easy for Google to detect these cookie-cutter type site footprints, and to reduce their rankings in the search engines.

phpBay works completely differently. Its not possible for any of the search engines to detect that your site is using an eBay script as it leaves no footprint at all.

Using phpBay Pro, all it takes to display auction listings is to add a single line of text into your post, or your page, wherever you want the auctions to show.

Here is an example of a phpBay command that will display a nicely formatted block of 5 auctions of Nintendo Wii products on your post – [phpbay]Wii,5,””,””[/phpbay]

The above example is a very simple one, and as you learn more about phpBay Pro you will make use of many of the other more advanced features that the script offers.

If you are interested in making some money on the internet then all you need to do is –

  1. Sign up for eBays Affiliate program here.
  2. Buy yourself a copy of phpBay Pro here.
  3. Build yourself a few niche stores.

I paid $49 for an UNLIMITED license. This means that you can use the script to build as many sites as you like. It also includes a lifetime of free upgrades.

My software paid for itself within 5 days of putting my very first site online.

Now you know how to show eBay auctions in WordPress quickly and easily.

Keeping Fuel Expenses Down


Take time to drive around and check the pump prices of the gas stations near your neighborhood. Keep in mind that a few cents difference can add up to a lot if you continually have your car re-filled in the same gas station all the time.

Shed some sweat

A good way to save money on gas and keep yourself healthy at the same time is by walking or riding a bike to your destination. It saves time since you do not have to look for parking and also makes you healthier from the exercise. Utilizing these alternatives will also keep you from getting stuck in traffic which will surely waste a lot of your time and gas.  

Keep your car in very good condition

It is necessary to keep your car’s engine in good running condition so that it will not consume a lot of fuel. When driving around on errands, plan out your route before you even get out of the house. This will minimize your trips going back and forth. If is also ideal to use the aircon as minimal as possible since it drastically increases the car’s fuel consumption.

Check your car’s tire pressure

Keep it a habit to check your car’s tires so each one has the right amount of pressure. Having unequal pressure can greatly affect the car’s fuel economy. It is also advised for you to refrain from accelerating too fast since this means burning a lot more fuel.

These are some of the things that you can do to save on gas. Gasoline is not a renewable resource, therefore using it wisely is very important to conserve this valuable commodity.

Email Tips For Keeping Subscribers NewsHungry


Be
concise

Less
definitely means more. When you are answering and email you don’t
have to include the original message as well. The person that sent it
to definitely has a copy of the message, and if you are planning to
say just “so do I”, it really wouldn’t make sense.

Experts
say any message of more than 100 lines is considered long and it will
probably end up not read. Some companies are taxed for every second
of internet connection, so they will not gladly accept messages that
are too long.

Be
careful with attachments

They
are a great invention, but they should be used carefully. If you send
a short message as attachment, you will certainly annoy the reader.
He will open your email, wait for another program to open the
attached document, and find out that you only wrote in the attachment
that you will all meat at 20 at some restaurant. if an attachment is
required, let the recipient know what it contains. Attachment with
strange extensions can contain viruses.

Be
careful when you send mail to multiple recipients

Before
doing this, ask yourself if every person in your list really wants to
find out details about how you spent your weekend. Recipients will
get annoyed if the information is of no interest to them. It can even
be considered spam if repeated many times.

And
also, remember all the addresses you have in you address book before
sending the email. Some years ago, an employee forgot the addresses
in his address book and sent a message in which he critiqued the
boss. The message got to the boss as well and, of course, the
employee got fired.

Be
careful how you write

Emails
that are too familiar are not appreciated by everyone, and “john
doe” emails are not appreciated at all. If you are not
addressing a person you know, don’t use short phrases. you
shouldn’t use the quite emoticons either, that might seem too
forward. Then check your text to correct the misspellings. Emails
with lots of mistakes don’t look to good and make a bad
impression.

Formatting
problems

Not
all email programs are simple, so keep the simplest format possible.
Maybe the recipient cannot see the green font and the flower send by
you. Email is for communication, not a design exercise, so keep it
simple.

Starting
and finishing

Don’t
start a message with at least a simple “Hello”. Lots of people
jump right to the subject. It doesn’t have to be formal, just
something polite. “Dear” or “hi” are very appropriate. At the
end “Sincerely” might seem too formal so use “All the best”
or “Yours truly”.

Scour Gives It All Back – Un AGLOCO-Like


Take a look at the above video and make your own conclusins to a new search engine just released. The basic premise from what I can see is you get paid in points for Visa merch cards that can be used to pay off your search engine usage. The scheme is sort of like the old bomb that was AGLOCO but so far from the viral garbage that it alone generated. Maybe this one will work, maybe not. But as long as you are just siting there why not just use my referral link and show that I didn’t waste my time by spreading the news.

This allows for the introduction of either the site, company name or its products. The along with it is another tell a friend script.

Then the process begins again. As more people use the tell a friend script, more and more people will know of the existence of the sponsoring company or site. People who read the ads inside the mail who liked what they see would go and click on the link and visit the site. This drives traffic into the site resulting to great number of potential customers.

Finding one is even simpler. All you have to do is go to a search engine and type in the search box “tell a friend script” then press enter or click go.

Letter Sent To Knuckle Dragger Politicians


June 17, 2008

Dear Sen. Mel Martinez (R FL),
Sen. Bill Nelson (D FL),
Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R FL-9),

The United States has vast oil and gas resources both onshore and offshore that are currently illegal to develop and therefore inaccessible.

U.S. law prohibits the development of approximately 38 BILLION BARRELS of undeveloped oil resources (19 billion barrels onshore and 18.92 billion offshore.)

U.S. law also prohibits the development of approximately 180 TRILLION CUBIC FEET of undeveloped natural gas resources (94.5 trillion cubic feet onshore and 85.7 trillion cubic feet offshore.)

By joining this petition I hereby request that the U.S. Congress vote to repeal these laws and enact new laws that encourage the immediate exploration for and extraction of oil and natural gas in the United States.

I am tired of other countries dictating what I will be paying at the pump for a gallon of gas.

We have elected you to act in our best interests. Clearly, we believe drilling here and drilling now is in our best interests.

Count me among the 73% of American people who believe that with appropriate safeguards to protect the environment, we should drill for oil off America’s coasts and in Alaska to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

Sincerely,

Above is the letter that me and 13,000+ other highly pissed off Floridians sent to our politicians living it up in Washington, DC. At the behest of a local radio show, I felt I had to do something. Presently, these damn gas prices are impeding my progress toward continuing on with my med school education. Feel free to do the same for your own reps in Congress and the Senate.
