Exploring eBay for Affiliate Marketing

After a very rewarding and successful experience using the Amazon Associates program. I decided that I should start an additional revenue stream. I've been using Google Adsense and Amazon exclusively for my affiliate marketing projects, but I'd like to add eBay into the mix.
How To Start Real Ebusinesses: Using Multiple Streams Of Income (Volume 1)

Many affiliate marketers have been earning a revenue from eBay, and I feel as though I've been missing my slice of the pie by not joining in on the fun. So today, I submitted an application to join the program. It was a relatively straight forward process, and I couldn't help but notice how easy they made it to join all of their international affiliate programs at once. With Amazon, you have to create a separate account for each international zone.

I'm curious as to how I might include eBay into my existing affiliate retail operations. I'm trying to increase my chances of earning, and also increase my revenue per month. I've been checking out some eBay marketing books that will hopefully help me to get the most out of the program, one of the books: How To Start Real Ebusinesses: Using Multiple Streams Of Income (Volume 1) .

Before anything, I'm going to have to be approved for the program. I submitted my website E-commerce For Everyone as my main website to use with the program. Hopefully, there isn't any issue with me using the eBay program on many different websites. Currently I'm operating over 60 different, affiliate retail websites, and if I keep doing what I'm doing (setting up a new one each week), then I feel 2010 will be a great year for me.

I'll follow up to this post if I get approved, and hopefully document the steps I'm taking on my road to success. I've been posting on my amazon associate blog over at WordPress, but since Blogger has integrated Amazon Associates, I might start to switch it up a little. I'll have to make it a point to post more in my Information Technology blog.

Oracle Finally Owns MySQL

Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems, who had also recently acquired MySQL not too long ago. MySQL started life as an open-source database system that was built was used freely by developers and companies around the world. Even large enterprise systems use MySQL, and this may have possed a threat to Oracle.

In a move from the "own your competition" playbook, Oracle snapped up Sun Mirosystems and thus MySQL. MySQL is the the world's most popular open source database, so the acquisition of Sun by Oracle makes the world of database administrators shake. I'm sure the world of Java and Solaris is also just been tossed up into the sky.

We all know that during acquisitions lots of promises are made, but rarely are they all kept. What I thought was interesting was that there was no mention of MySQL in the Sun Oracle Press Release. I'm sure that there will be more news to follow as soon as the dust settles.

Life with a PS3 Changes Things

Wow, it's been a while since I made my last post. That's what I was thinking and I started to think about why that might be. I came to the conclusion, that since purchasing the Sony Playstation 3, the television, is now a device I can embrace once again. Seriously, the television was on it's way out the door, but then some one shed some light on the wonderful goodness of browsing the internet on your hi-def tv. It was finally, a better way forward.

When using the the PS3 with a hi-def television, you can browse the internet on your tv and watch on demand content from YouTube, Hulu, and a ton of other video and social websites. I've been calling this internet television, TV 2.0. Because the PS3 is a DLNA compatible device, I can steam, music, movies, pictures, subscibe to podcasts and more from my computer over the wireless network.

On that last note, it might be worthwhile to consider buying a new wireless n router so you can stream HD movies (while still doing all your other network intensive stuff like voip, streaming video, bittorent).

Once you step up to watching strickly internet video (or free dtv), you start to realize that you've got access to all your favorite shows (without having to pay for content subscriptions). Since getting the PS3, I've been even further enveloped in a world of hi-tech gadgetry. I live in a very network centric home, and I'll tell you what........ I like it. I like alot!

Back to my e-commerce work.

After Holiday Shopping Sales Strong For Amazon Associates

I'm very pleased with the results of my Holiday sales figures for 2008. It was a rumored that sales figures would be low, as consumers ride out the recession. Fortunately, online shopping has been one of the few growth areas that has continued to shine as large companies such as Circuit City collapse in the economic meltdown.

My sales this year actually doubled last years totals. I've had an opportunity to launch several new sites, which started doing well almost immediately.

Personally, the holidays represent an opportunity to get some things done, mainly coding. I spent some time last week to getting a control panel upgrade finished. I'm nearly done, and in a very short time, people will be blown away by the ease of use and the features that we'll offer. E-commerce For Everyone specializes in creating websites for Amazon Associates.
