There is one guarantee I can make you. That is, you will never become rich or even enjoy financial independence working for someone else. The days of corporate loyalty where you could work for the same company and feel secure in the prospects that your job was going to last until retirement are long gone. In some fields, for example the so-called high tech fields of IT, computers and electronics, owing to constant company mergers, acquisitions, downsizing, "outsourcing" and being fired because you are "too old" it has reached the point where the average job in that field lasts three to four years. Then you're out and having to struggle to find something else. If you can find something else. Besides being highly competitive with literally thousands of new entrants into the technology field every year, as you age, it gets harder to keep a job and once lost, very hard to find a replacement.

If you are tired of that, then you owe it to yourself to take charge of your own future. If that sounds like something you'd either like to do or need to do because you are in a dead end otherwise, you can start right now by downloading the free special report by clicking on the graphic below. Oh yes, "free" means just that, FREE.

Want to Make a Million Dollars on-Line?
How many times have you heard that? How many ads have you seen promising that you can do just that?

Fact is, some people are! Fact is - and this is where you and I come in - most people will NOT make a million dollars on the Web. That's the bad news/good news truth.

Ready for some good news though? There IS money to be made through Web based businesses. Whether you'll make a million, I can't predict and any promises of such should be viewed with strong suspicion at best.

If you're not afraid to put effort into the process, and if you are willing to learn, you can make a successful living on line.

Be very careful. There are at least as many if not more scams and worthless so-called opportunities as there are real business opportunities on line. Learn, and look at any claims which seem to offer riches for nothing with deep suspicion. A real business like a real job requires, dedication, work and knowledge in order to succeed. We will present nothing to you that does not meet our strict standards of honesty, integrity and has the real potential to assist you in achieving your goals.

What sells best on eBay®?

So you have decided that you want to make money on line by selling things. Perhaps ebay auctions are the way you wish to go. Or perhaps you want to create a Web site to sell things. Now the big question - where do you find products to sell? Where do you find products if you want to open a Web based store? If you are a creator of products, you already have something to sell. I know, you will read all of the advice of the so-called Internet marketing gurus who claim that you must create your own products to sell. That's great if you are so gifted. If you are skilled in crafts, or at creating information products, or any other thing which might be in demand and sell well on line, then you're all set to go.

But what if you don't? What if you do not have products of your own creation to sell? Then selling what someone else has created is the only solution. Finding good products to sell is not easy. There are thousands, if not more, sites out there trying to sell the exact same things. You need to find things which are not being sold by everyone else. That applies whether you are looking for things to sell on eBay or on your own Web site. Where are you going to find these products to sell? Where do you find products you can sell without the expense of inventory? You have two choices. One, you can invest a lot of money in buying products wholesale and hope that they will sell. If you do that you are faced with two potential problems. One, what if they don't sell? Secondly, where are you going to store all of those things you bought for resell? In your garage? A spare bedroom? Oh yes, there is a third problem. You had to come up with the funds to buy them in the first place. So what is the second choice? What's the better answer? The answer is drop shipping. With drop shipping, you only buy the product AFTER you have sold it.

A Drop Ship distributor is a wholesale product supplier who will ship one product at a time directly to your customer for you, right from his warehouse.

You do not have to be concerned with warehousing the product before it is sold. Actually you do not pay for, or ship anything before it is sold. It works like this. You determine that you are going to sell a particular product. You create a Web site, or you run an auction on eBay. Remember, you don't yet have the product. You do know where you can get it though. You create an ad to promote the item, including pictures and description, and your retail selling price on your Web site or auction listing. When your customer orders the item, or in the case of a winning bid on your auction, the sale is concluded, you then order the item from your wholesale drop ship distributor. The item is sent directly from the distributor to your customer. The item is actually packaged with YOUR name and address info (or that of your company name if you have one) and not the the drop shipping distributor. You pay the distributor the wholesale price of the item and the difference between that and the retail price your customer paid is your profit.

It is a very good way to start an Internet business, requiring very little up front investment on your part. Actually you could say "no up front investment," as you generally are not going to pay the distributor until you have placed the order with him, and you're not going to place the order until you've received an order from your customer.

You do have to be careful though. There are perhaps thousands of companies out there providing drop shipping service. Many of them are the real thing. Many are not.

  • A REAL Drop Shipper is a factory-authorized wholesale distributor, or sometimes the actual manufacturer of their products. They ship to your customer from their OWN warehouse. NO middlemen or resellers cheating you out of your profits.

  • A REAL Drop Shipper (with VERY FEW legitimate exceptions) will not charge you an "account setup fee".
  • A REAL Drop Shipper will never force you to place a "minimum quantity order" they will ship one product at a time to your customer with NO quantity commitments.

There are many "lists" and ebooks offering to tell you where to find drop shippers. Sometimes the information is good. Often it is of little value. You DO get what you pay for. Drop Ship Source Directory.

Though generally thought about as being primarily suitable for blogs, WordPress format sites are becoming more popular among many small web site builders. WordPress is an open source platform meaning that it is written, maintained and supported by a huge community of user developers. To top it off, it is free. Not free as in "30 day trial" or "this is a stripped down version but for such and such a price you can have the full functional version". No, it is FREE. It is no wonder that it has grown in popularity as a platform for those web site owners who want powerful web site performance and capabilities but not necessarily the more traditional web site building model.

If you have a WordPress based web site or blog, consider hosting on a web site host which has been specifically tailored to the WordPress platform. Optimized your page load times, reliability and security. Fast, Secure and Scalable.
