My Biggest eBay Project Since 2008

ebay-shopping-bags-new-logo

In February 2008 I started working on my eBay course that was delivered online by video, it took me about 6 months to launch it back then, we had so much success that we got an offer to sell the entire site with all materials for a lot of cash, that’s when we sold WAHOL.com (stands for Work At Home OnLine). I had a blast creating the course and enjoyed answering questions, the best thing about it was not the amount of money I made, but it was the success of my previous members, and I only sold it after everyone got what they wanted from it. Only 2 years later the company that bought it was almost out of business due to some none related bad investments, I offered to buy the domain back and they agreed.

Ever since I sold it, I had extra time to work on my other ventures, affiliate marketing was a big thing and I was making a decent income with very minimal work, as well as continuing teaching my eBay classes and selling of course.

I have been working with my team on a new eBay course all build from scratch, sharing everything I learned throughout the years. My past clients will tell you I have always over delivered information (good useful info that is), and I can tell you that I really get a lot of joy of seeing results, in fact, I tell everyone how proud I am of their progress.

Today, I am launching my course!

Though everything is completely different from what it was 8 years ago, I made sure I include everything I know that will either start you a business from scratch or expand your business, whether you already sell on eBay or not, this course is for everyone.

Throughout the next 2 weeks, I will share more details about it, but I can tell you now it is completely worth it.

The official cart open date is Tuesday October 27th, and it will close down on Sunday November 1st.

I have a few tiers launching this course, including beta testers, email subscribers, affiliates and JV’s, and then we have a huge ad campaign including online, newspapers and possibly TV spots. If you want to keep up to date, you can do 1 of 2 things:

  1. You can join my periscope if you download the app and follow 1LX. (Psssst… I will be scoping today at 3pm EST).
  2. Sign up for the mail list on the right side of this article.

I will have a few short classes that will be extremely useful for free during the 2 weeks launch, the 2 methods above are the only 2 ways to get the free classes notifications.

I can not tell how truly excited I am about this, it’s going to be awesome 🙂

Elance: The Untapped Job Market!

Simply put, it’s the eBay of jobs!
Being a computer geek/blogger I got many jobs from elance.com in my early days (not that early though).
Elance.com allows people worldwide to buy or sell their services and products, or even talents!

Here is how it works:

You subscribe to elance, a small monthly fee will be charged, you view jobs posted under your expertise, you bid a reasonable price for the job and the job’s poster might choose you based on experience (and of course your low bid), then you communicate with them, finish the job and get paid. That is it.
For example: I subscribed to elance in the beginning as a web developer, Then I was able to view and choose between 250-500 jobs posted at that time, choose a programming job that I thought fits my skills, the lowest bid was $150 for the entire job, I bid $145 and was awarded the job, talked to the job’s poster, she explained in more details what she needed, took me about 40 minutes to finish what she needed then submit it, she was happy with what I’ve done and paid me instantly using PayPal.
In this example, it took me less than an hour from start until I got paid, between searching, bidding and working on the job. Some jobs take a bit longer depending on the bidding ending date, or how big the job is.

As a freelance writer, I found it better for me to get a copyright (or ghost) writing jobs better than programming or web developing.
However, elance offers way much more variety of jobs, to name a few: Programming & web developing, Sales and marketing, graphic designing, writing and translation, finance and management, even legal advice is offered there as a job category.

At the time of writing this article here are some facts you may need to know:

  • In the last 30 days there were 20,180 jobs posted.
  • There are 134,658 experts on elance.
  • The amount paid and work done since 2005 is of a value of $139,020,239

That means, that no matter what you do, there is a job related to you that you might want to grab the extra cash from.

In time you will build your reputation and gain trust all over the site, and job posters will preffer hiring you even if your not bidding or ask for a higher prices on their posted jobs.

Is it worth to subscribe?

Simply: Yes. My own average jobs is worth $250 per article. average writing jobs today is 7000+ taking only 2 jobs a day will equal $500 (a day!), with a commitment to do it for 30 days (considering being lucky finding 2 jobs a day and being awarded the jobs) that would be $15000 per month, the subscription as of today is $30 a month. So, I think it is worth it.

Of course elance offers a lot of advice from bidding to accepting the jobs, and it’s all available for free as soon as you log in (The Elance University!).

Did I mention that basic posting of a job is for free!

Bankaholic.com sells for $15 Million!

The incredibly famous blogger (& one of my three blogging heroes) Darren Rowse of ProBlogger wrote an article today about this one blog run by one man, Bankaholic.com is a WordPress blog run by John Wu, Darren said that he received emails reporting that Mr. Wu blog was sold for up to a nice $15 million to PaidContent.org The deal is to pay $12.4 million upfront and another $2.5 mill over the next 12 months and Mr. Wu will remaiun blogging on the site.
I think it’s a very fair (& a bit higher than normal) price for just one blog, but like Darren mentioned, with a current 42,168 alexa rank and a growing Google trends for the site, and the huge affiliate marketing potential on the blog, I also think that I made the right desicion for not selling this blog for $65,000 😉

The good news is this:
Again, perfect timing! As I announced yesterday about the new school, I will be revealing details about it throughout this month.
Well, I think that students will be happy that a big part of the school will be about (My number one passion) Blogging, and how to profit online from it. (Hint: The last sentence includes the name of the new school).
Also, I think students will be happy to know that I will include instructions and details on how to use and rank in alexa, how to integrate Google services into your everyday life and of course into your business, and ways to get a good “Organic” Google trends rank for your blog or website.
Also in the school…(Wait! I am not telling everything now, you have to subscripe to the feed by clicking here).

Thank you Darren for the perfectly timed info, and congratulations to Mr. John Wu for the great sale.
