Another day, another ecommerce store
My little ecommerce template project has become extremely busy with multiple daily inquiries and a number of sales lined up. This is typical of September, many a wannabe online seller has dreams of cashing in on the upcoming Christmas season. For the time being, I'm going with the flow, still... Sign in

A neat free tool for ripping CDs
As I finish off what is turning out to be a masterpiece of an ecommerce store using my osCommerce template: HERE... I ran into an issue where my client needed music sample tracks in the listings. She had most of them but was missing some. As a licensed reseller, getting what she needed from her... Sign in to see full entry.

Building in efficiencies to your sales process
One thing that I put off for far too long was writing a thread in my web forum for pre-sales questions. An incident last evening with an online enquiry, finally prompted me to get around to it. The premise is simple enough. To make money as a contractor, you must complete as many jobs as possible in... Sign in to see full entry.

Getting the deadbeats to pay up
In any contracting situation, especially in the cybor world where you are most times dealing with people you have and will never meet in person, being stiffed for your final fee is inevitable. I use the term "final fee" because it is assumed that a traditional contractor payment arrangement is... Sign in to see full entry.

Free article submitting software that I have yet to check out
Normally I do not pass along links to free stuff unless I have checked it out, tested the item and have a good idea of its value. Some freebies aren't worth the trouble, many are not really freebies but instead are offering free stuff if you make a purchase or a free trial. I at least know that this...

How about another good old fashioned freebie?
Way back when in the days eBay allowed the sale of digital goods, people sold a lot of cybor junk for pennies on their original release price. That's just the way it goes with items that are purchased with resell rights. No matter how good the product is, they all start out at a suggested selling... Sign in to see full entry.

It's impressive when you step back and look at it
Since early in the summer I have been working on taking a template I cobbled together for osCommerce and turning it into a viable source of income. At this stage just over two months later, I can say that it is just beginning to pay off.... and boy have I learned a lot. Every progression along the... Sign in to see full entry.

I seriously need some critical input
As per usual, I charged into another deal hoping not to make the same mistakes as last time. So far, so good. This time around I am doing a job for a forgiving return client. But at the same time I intend to over deliver. This is a store that wants to capitalize on demographics by selling relatively... Sign in to see full entry.

Your online cake store specialist
A couple of weeks ago, I began a project for a cakemaking company. It was simple enough, take the artwork from their website and incorporate it into my osCommerce template to give them a professional looking cake store. In dealing with clients however, things are not always as simple as they could... Sign in to see full entry.

What works and what doesn't work
I wish I knew the answer to my blog title. Two years ago I set up a web forum to have a place for my web clients and others to ask questions about their web projects. It took off fairly well, some longtime Blogit members stopped in and registered, a number of others did as well. Unfortunately... Sign in to see full entry.
