My Best Planning Tools – Pen & Paper!
January 12, 2012 by Andrew Minalto
Hello Everyone & Happy New Year! All the partying has ended and it’s time to get back to work, yahoo! Right before the New Year, during the last week of December I was setting my goals and planned out year 2012 – what I want to achieve, targets to reach etc., all the usual stuff. If you haven’t done that already, DO IT NOW! I have said this many times over – without reachable goals in place it’s very difficult to work, especially on your own business, online. You really want to set clear goals and create a strategy on Read More…

Hey Everyone! After last week’s post about how to start from scratch, I’m back with a new and quite lengthy post about fulfilment houses – something every online shop owner should consider using (if it’s suitable for the business model of course). Just what exactly are fulfilment houses? Fulfilment houses such as Shipwire and Amazon Fulfilment Web Service are third party services that take care of fulfilling client orders on the business owner’s behalf. Fulfilment houses take charge of receiving the products from the supplier, housing the said inventory, receiving the orders from the business owner’s clients, and packaging and Read More…
It’s NEVER Too Late! (I messed it all up AGAIN)

People make mistakes. I’m not an exception and this is THE DAY again I’ll admit from the bottom of my heart – I have made a mistake, literary – messed it all up! (this is not my first time either, lol) It all started with the brand new TheWholesaleForums skin saga – the whole thing just reminded me how several years ago I invested more than £10k in a project that miserably failed. I lost my money just like that. It was an online website/service AND it was all my fault because I didn’t conduct a proper market research prior Read More…
How To Choose a Good Shopping Cart?
August 25, 2011 by Andrew Minalto
With shopping carts it really is – You Get What You Pay For. Free or open source shopping carts will never offer you range of tools and features more sophisticated, hosted solutions offer for a reasonable monthly fee. Even then, how to know, which cart is best for your situation? What you expect a shopping cart will do for you? This will be a unique list, based on your business specifics, size, location etc. There are hundreds of functions to think about. However, I believe these 13 are crucial to ANY online shop: http://eCommerceMagnates.com/13-must-have-shopping-cart-features/ In this month’s eCommerce Magnates video Read More…
Twitter & eBay Business – How To?
August 9, 2011 by Andrew Minalto
Twitter. Twitter. Twitter. Everyone talks about it, many have heard about it, only few use it’s full potential. Most people have simplified Twitter for business use and that’s the biggest failure – you can’t expect for it to work by simply tweeting about your sales offers or special promotions. Well, you can do that but don’t expect huge response. Unless you’re running a coupon site or Daily Deal site of course. Twitter, just like Facebook is a COMMUNITY and that’s how you want to treat it. In this week’s ChatWithAndrew.com Q&A session, I have put together 8 Golden Rules to Read More…
Your Best Friend & Your Worst Enemy – HOSTING!
July 21, 2011 by Andrew Minalto
As long as you’re not noticing hosting, you’re with a good provider! That would be the single, best describing phrase of a good quality, reliable hosting company. And it’s true – we do not actually feel how good or bad hosting service is as long as it runs smoothly. Problems arrive when your website is down for several hours of even DAYS, as it happened to me few years ago. In today’s E-Commerce Magnates video newsletter #2 I cover exact tips & strategies you should follow to choose a good hosting company for your online business: Web hosting overview Parameters Read More…
How to Make Money on eBay with £20?
July 4, 2011 by Andrew Minalto
Everyone wants to make loads of money. Everyone. But very few people actually have what it takes to make kind of money they’re dreaming about. Usually it’s lack of knowledge, lack of experience and lack of working capital. Yes, somehow, most people associate term “online business” with “low entry level business” which very often is a true assumption by the way. These days you can start making money online literary in minutes, using sites like Fiverr.com as an example. But here’s the thing with selling physical goods online – you have to have appropriate buying power to succeed. And this Read More…
