Are You Running Out Of Things To Write On Your Blog?

 Running Out Of Things To Write On Your Blog?

Running out of things to write in your blog.  You know that you have to keep it updated to keep the search engines hitting your site, but, you are just at a loss for word.

Many of the top bloggers and website owners have a secret weapon that saves them time and makes them money. You too can use their secret weapons and it is very easy.  They are called Private Label Rights (PLR) Articles.

Private Label Rights (PLR) Articles are the perfect solution for many internet business owners who need fresh content for their websites or blogs but do not have the time to write it from scratch, or have simply run out of things to say for the day.

You may be surprised how many website owners have a secret weapon that saves them time and makes them money. You too can use their secret weapons and it is very easy.  They are called Private Label Rights (PLR) Articles.

Private Label Rights (PLR) Articles are the perfect solution for many internet business owners who need fresh content for their websites or blogs but do not have the time to write it from scratch, or have simply run out of things to say for the day.

You may be surprised how many online marketers use this little secret.  It is a perfectly legitimate practice.

Private Label Rights Articles (PLR) are a fantastic way to add new content to your website or blog and fill up your autoresponder.  There are numerous PLR sites on the web. Some PLR membership sites even offer you content for pennies per article, so why should you choose EasyPLR?  It’s easy, they know their stuff.  Nicole Dean knows content, she has co-authored an audio course (Easy Article Marketing) that teaches business owners how to use articles to increase their traffic and make more money.  She created LadyPen.com a popular article directory for woman.  She understands the need for quality content.

Secondly, EasyPLR.com offers all of their packs in Limited Distribution, that means that she only sells so many packs of each specific content article and then they are gone.

The PLR Packs at EasyPLR.com have a very specific focus and are only sold to a small number of content seekers, usually 60 people.  (Where many membership sites have 500+ members!)  This means that while you are not getting sole exclusive rights to the article – you know that hundreds of other website owners aren’t going to have access to the same content.

This gives you a chance to take a breather from writing for your blog or website, when you need it and still have fresh copy to use. 

Take a look at all the wonderful article packs offered at EasyPLR.com and see if they can’t help you, when the brain just needs a break.  Did I mention that the packs are also very inexpensive and you do not have to buy packs you don’t need or want like with some other PLR companies.  EasyPLR.com really is the perfect Private Label Rights company.

Transitioning from Part Time at Home to Full Time

Making The Transition From Part Time at Home to Full Time at Home

Posted By Audrey Okaneko On September 20, 2008 @ 8:46 pm In Positive Thinking | No Comments

I often read articles, blog posts and message board posts from those hoping to make the transition from part time at home to full time at home.

Determining how much income you’ll need to make that transition can be a bit tricky.

If you currently earn $30,000 per year, then you know you’ll need to bring in at least $30,000 to make the change. However if your job offers any type of benefits this also needs to be figured into your calculations.

For example, does your job provide you medical insurance? If so, what will it cost you to replace that insurance once you leave your job?

Does your job provide sick time and vacation time? If you currently receive 21 days a year between the sick time and vacation time, then you need to consider you’ll be losing that income if you and your family take a trip or if you need to take a day off due to you or a child being sick.

Does your job provide any type of retirement benefits? Calculate in how much those benefits are.

There are also expenses you’ll save by working at home. Often, out of office lunches occur anywhere from once a week to five times per week. If you are paying for these lunches out of pocket, then you’ll see a savings when you begin eating lunches at home.

Do you pay to dry clean your work clothes? Again, you’ll see a savings when you are at home in sweats or blue jeans.

How far do you commute to work? Figure in the wear and tear on the car, along with gas prices. I know some folks who put 2 or 3 tanks of gas in their car each week. Where I live that can be over $100 per week just in gas.

Sometimes folks make the decision to go from full time work to part time work, then full time at home. It can be a much smoother transition. You might even find a balance of part time work and part time at home that you really feel comfortable with.

Most often, in a business your earnings will go up each year, so setting a long term goal of say 5 years to leave your full time job is a very realistic goal in my opinion.

Knowing exactly what you’ll need to bring in, can help you in determining when you’ll be able to make that transition from part time at home to full time at home.

10 Surefire Ways To Kill Your Ebay Business

It’s surprisingly easy to kill your eBay business, if you’re not careful – sure, you can start over from scratch without it costing you anything, but do you really want to? Still, if you want your business to end up dead in the water, here are some simple ways to do it.

Lie about an item: Say it works fine when it sometimes doesn’t work. Say it’s in perfect condition when it has a scratch. Your customers will hate you!

Post whenever you feel like it: Make sure to leave your customers hanging around, wondering when their item is going to turn up. This makes sure they buy from someone else next time.

Let items end anytime: Few people will be around to care about your auction if it ends in the middle of the night. Why go to the trouble of working out whether auctions will end at a good time?

Don’t bother with email: Customers are just time wasters anyway. eBay businesses are supposed to run themselves! Never give informed responses to questions about your item.

Sell rubbish: Really, it’s just eBay. You can just sell any old tat from the market for a 200% profit. Let quality be someone else’s concern – I mean, really, what do they expect for that price?

Refuse to give discounts: You know what your items cost, you know what your profit margin is going to be, and you’re not going to negotiate. Remember that giving customers special deals might make them feel good and come back to you again.

Make your listings ugly: As many colours, flashing lights and animations as possible will really give those customers a headache. Write as much in CAPITALS!!!! as you can. Preferably big, red capitals. Be sure to use the fonts Impact and Comic Sans. For an extra special touch, see if you can figure out a way to add some music.

Don’t take photos: It’s such trouble, after all. If buyers are picky enough to actually want to see items before they bid on them, then screw ’em, that’s what I say.

Write short descriptions: Be as brief as possible, and use lots of mysterious abbreviations. This obviously makes you look very cool. You can even just write the title again in the description box. Think of the effort you’ll save!

It really is easy to kill your ebay business, but, with just a little bit of effort you can have a thriving ebay business that you and your clients will love for a long time to come.

How To Choose The Right Ebay Category

Some people think it’s easy to choose the right eBay category, and often it is. Sometimes, though, it might not be quite clear exactly what to go for.

Why is it Even Important?

Plenty of people use the category system to find items, when they’re not looking for something specific. If your item is listed in the wrong category – or you’ve just given up and listed it in ‘Everything Else’ – then these people aren’t going to find your auction.

Also, listing items in the wrong categories is against eBay’s rules, and eBay say they will remove any auctions that are wrongly categorised. They don’t often actually do this, but it’s not worth the risk – especially since breaking any rules can cause them to penalise your account, including losing PowerSeller status if you have it.

So What Can You Do?

eBay will suggest categories for you when you sell your item, if you type in a few words to describe the item on the category selection page and click ‘search’. You can make the best of this feature by typing in exactly what your item is, with brand name and model number (if any), so that eBay can find the best category for you.

If that doesn’t work for you, then search yourself for items like yours, and pay attention to which category most of them seem to be in (you can see this near the top of each item’s description page). Try different words and see which ones come back with the most results. You can also browse through all the available categories from eBay’s front page.

Remember that the more specific the category is, the better – use as many subcategories as are appropriate. Don’t just list your HP laptop in the ‘Computers’ category, for example – list it in ‘Computers > Laptops > HP’. Don’t worry: your item will still appear in the ‘Computers’ category, as well as ‘Computers > Laptops’, because items listed in subcategories are always listed in every category above.

Take some time to look through all the categories and get familiar with the way eBay as a whole is laid out. After all, that’s better than getting a few months down the line and finding that you still think of eBay’s category system like it’s some kind of scary jungle.

What if More Than One Category Fits?

Don’t worry, eBay have you covered. For a small extra fee, you can list your item in an extra category, to increase the number of potential buyers who will see it. This isn’t always worth it, though – some items only really fit properly in one category, and listing them in extra categories is just a waste.

Once you know where to list your item, the next step is to write your auction’s title. The title is the most important thing about your auction – the difference between a good title and a bad title can be the difference between $10 and $100.
