Drive Yourself to More Auction Money
Big ticket items are increasingly popular on eBay.
Cars are probably one of the best examples of this.
In fact, eBay is the largest dealer of used cars in the USA. And eBays car sales in the UK is also growing significantly. Every 16 seconds, a car is sold on eBay!
If youre an eBay seller, heres an idea you might like to consider to make extra cash.
The vast majority of car dealers dont use eBay. They advertise in the press, usually locally, and their customers likewise usually live within reach of the car dealer.
What eBay Motors has successfully proved is that people will bid on cars from owners hundreds or even thousands of miles away.
Why not take your eBay selling expertise, and offer your services to car dealers in your area
You know how to create auctions, take and upload photos, and manage auctions. The dealers have vehicles which are getting a tiny fraction of the exposure which eBay could offer.
You might decide to offer this to dealers on a no-cost basis. In other words, you bear the cost of eBays listing and selling fees. The benefit here is that there is no reason why the dealer shouldnt give you the go-ahead. They could get a sale without cost to them and no extra effort on their behalf. Thats what I call a no-brainer!
Alternatively, you could pass on the fees to the dealer on the basis that they would be spending money anyway on press advertising.
The other commercial arrangements are simple. You could work on a commission, where you get a percentage of the sale price. Or you could agree a price which the dealer will accept for the sale of the car, and anything you can get above that price is your profit. This would work particularly well if the dealer has had a vehicle for some time, and has no interest in it.
The best types of cars to sell on eBay are those that are unusual for one reason or another. It might be vintage or classic vehicles, sports cars or high value models. Youre best to avoid what might be termed "normal" cars. It also depends on the kind of dealers you have in your area.
One of the major potential problems is easily handled. You cant expect the dealer to cease trying to sell a vehicle which you have on eBay auction. In every auction you run for a car, you state that the vehicle is also on sale in other ways, and that you reserve the right to withdraw it before the end of the auction period. You will see such statements on many eBay car auctions.
This idea doesnt have to be limited to cars. There are big ticket item opportunities in several categories. Youre looking for retail outlets which tend to concentrate on local advertising and local trade. Examples of this would be jewellers, antique traders and real estate operations.
With big ticket items, just one or two sales per week could make a significant difference to you.

Mortgage Prepayment Penalties - Just Say No
One of the most common terms found in a new home loan is a prepayment penalty. This type of penalty says that if the borrower pays off the loan early, commonly during the first five years of the loan, then the borrower will be responsible for paying an additional amount of money, typically about six months interest on 80% of the mortgage balance. Sub-prime market loans will typically carry prepayment penalties more than standard mortgage loans.

Internet Marketing Reality Check
There are thousands of web sites, books, CD-ROMs, cassette tapes and various other forms of communication devoted to the topic of Internet marketing. The majority of these sites profess to offer "secret strategies" and "killer tactics" which promise to increase your chances of having success on the Internet.

I was all set to write an article predicting the future of search engines, when Yahoo dropped Google and replaced it with its own engine. Now thats big news. In less than twenty-four hours, Google went from about 79% of the market share to about 51%, almost overnight. And what a welcome relief it is too! Being #1 in Google was great, but when you had the misfortune of dropping even a couple of positions you really felt it. Now there will be more stability; if you drop in Google today, your hits from Yahoo will remain consistent.
Writing a Press Release
When dealing with "this-just-in" type information, it is important to understand how to write a head-turning press release. A press release must contain substantial information that you consider to be newsworthy and substantial. Relate the news to the audience. Spell out for them WHY it is newsworthy and why they should read on. First describe your news, and THEN tell who said it, etc. Remember that the first ten words in your press release are the attention-getters, thus should be effective. Use what journalists refer to as plain-style language, not fancy words or lots of adjectives. Stick to the facts; avoid fluff. Provide plenty of contact information the name, phone numbers, fax etc. for the person with the most information about the story to make it as easy as possible for the media to do their job!
Retirement or Financial Freedom
In the past most people never retired. They died. The average life expectancy was much less than it is these days, and there were no financial planners around to help people save up enough to quit work. As recently as the 1960ís, if you did manage to save up enough money to retire, youíd be lucky to live another 5 or 6 years before you kicked the bucket. This made financial planning for retirement a little easier because you really only needed enough income for a few years.
