2016 Readers’ Contest Winners Announcement!

A big thanks to everyone who entered this year’s readers’ contest and posted their suggestions for blog posts ideas for the upcoming year!

Although there were a lot less entries than last year (I guess that special £50 gift card really did entice a lot of you!) – it was a case of quality over quantity as the suggestions were excellent!

Truthfully, basically every suggestion was something I would like to cover on this blog next year, so thank you again to all of those who took part!

And now for what you’ve been waiting for… let’s find our 5 lucky winners!

To make the selection process 100% fair and objective, I made a list of all the people who entered, and then simply entered their names to random.org’s number generator:

I then clicked random list generator function to randomise the list and find our 5 lucky winners (i.e. the 5 names at the top of the list). (more…)

Readers Contest – £100 of Amazon Gift Cards to be Won!

Today is December 16th, which means we’re only nine short days away from Christmas!

And what does that mean? Well yes, presents and eating (lots of eating!) but I’m talking more about this blog…

Our annual blog readers contest, where you have the chance to win a £20 Amazon gift card!

Just like the previous few years, I’ll be giving away an Amazon gift card to 5 lucky winners, worth £100 in total.

How do you enter the contest?

Well it couldn’t be easier – all you need to do is leave a comment below this post with a suggestion/idea for a future blog post (*important – please make sure you put the correct email address and name when you leave your comment, as that’s what I’ll use to send your Amazon gift card).

Yep, it’s as easy as that! And there are no rules or requirements for your suggestion – it can be something very specific, it can be something very broad, you can ask me to review a product (business related of course), or to review a service or piece of software.

Anything and everything that you’d like to see me cover on this blog in 2017 – post about it below in the comments section!

Here are a few examples, just to help get you going:

  • How to verify suppliers who are NOT on Alibaba?
  • Which is the best eCommerce shopping cart?
  • How can I convert my eBay and Amazon customers to eCommerce customers?
  • How to find suppliers from countries other than China?
  • What’s the best camera for product photography?
  • How to get reviews for your new Amazon listings?
  • Etc. etc.!

And as I said, if you can’t come up with a specific question, then just general topic ideas are fine as well, such as: (more…)

NEW & Improved – 60 Day Blueprint Program goes LIVE NOW!

With Christmas around the corner and New Year just a few weeks away, it’s time to start working on next year’s plans, don’t you think? And what could be a better thing than to start your own eBay & Amazon business?!

Today I’m announcing the new & improved 60 Day Blueprint Program (60DBP).

Reservations for January 2017 & other upcoming months starts RIGHT NOW!

I have re-worked the website so it’s now fully responsive and mobile friendly. But it’s not the website you’re interested in of course but the program itself.

From next year, the 60DBP will be extended from 8 to 10 weeks and now includes Selling on Amazon too! Just like how I recently updated my Easy Auction Business course with the Amazon module, I have extended the 60DBP so we have time to launch products on Amazon as well.

For people who are new to my services – 60 Day Blueprint is a personal 1 to 1 coaching program where I personally work with people to help them start a successful eBay & Amazon business. Each week we have a 1 hour chat session plus we work via email throughout the week on the latest updates/tasks.

As an added bonus you receive a FULL mega design pack created by my in-house designer, which includes: a logo, eBay template (fully coded), eBay shop header banner, business cards and other stationery designs. This design pack alone sells for £397 via Spicy Auction Templates but 60DBP customers get it FOR FREE!

I won’t be covering the details of the program in this post as you can go and read everything on the 60DBP website’s How It Works page.

There’s also a new video that covers basically the same thing, just in video format. (more…)
