I have seen these on eBay and other places for sale and some of them look like real fish. Where do they make these and how can I learn?

There are some videos on Youtube about how to carve a fish. Here’s a couple for example:

Here’s a whole gallery of fish carving tips and techniques:

You could also search locally for a wood carving club to show you how to carve fish. Then you could perhaps pay a small fee to use their tools and also get expert tips in real life.

I hope this helps you get started..

Basic Private Label Membership Techniques And Strategies

February 15th, 2012 No comments

A private label membership is like having an arsenal of tools and strategy in a super all-in-one package. To help you use your tools to make the most of your investment, here are some basic guidelines to help you make the most of your private label membership.

Ground Work

Begin by taking a time out and reviewing the instructions and any helpful tips and guidelines provided in the private label membership site you have joined or are considering. Then review what rights you have which should be something along these lines (check with the individual programs to make sure):

With private label rights, you have the right to and need to make the content unique to you by revising or in other ways alter the original content. You can claim authorship after you have altered the original works.

Again, do check with your program to see specific requirements. Some ask you to revise a certain percentage. And others may have additional rules like not selling the packages for under a certain price or on eBay. When in doubt, ask questions so you know what rights you have.
Leg Work

Next break your private label projects up into small action steps, noting them on paper or a document on your computer, then take charge, tackling each step and accomplishing it.
Popular techniques and strategic steps could include:

1. Work on one project at a time. If your membership site gives you more than one ebook package, for example, only work on one at a time until it’s completely finished and loaded, ready for sale, and your marketing materials are in place.

2. Break the processing of your package down into manageable steps and write them out so that you repeat the process with each product package as it comes along for the most efficient handling of everything in your membership. Steps can include:

A. Revise and your product and marketing content: edit for spelling & grammar errors as needed, insert graphics / digital photos, insert other articles or paragraphs, etc. into the content, revise some sentences and paragraphs, after revising the sales copy, insert audio / video links, images, etc. maybe changing chapter order or orders of sections and headings, etc.

B. Brand everything. Add your contact information and especially URL to the product header / footer of each page, the sales copy, articles, autoresponder series, etc.

C. Insert money-making avenues into your product, website and marketing materials as needed: pay-per-click Google ™Adsense ads, affiliate links, banners, product images for back-end sales, sponsor and classified ads, etc.

D. Load everything in place: autoresponder messages and lead capture form code into sales page or as its own web page, main product website, product and bonus download files, audio / video files, etc.

E. Market – -daily! Set up a daily Task in your Outlook or other calendar and spend a little time each day for promotions: submitting articles with your byline & URL, post on forums and send out emails with your URL in your signature (sig) file.

Using Selling Manager to Boost Your Ebay Home Business

January 8th, 2012 No comments

One of the wonderful things about eBay is that they offer a wide variety of different tools to help sellers generate more business. One of the more popular tools that eBay offers its sellers in the eBay Selling Manager, which is a sales management tool that can help you manage your auctions more efficiently. eBay also offers a more inclusive version of their selling tool, called Selling Manager Pro. Both of these tools do come with a low monthly fee that is added to your eBay statement, unless you run an eBay store, in which case it is free.

Deciding which version of the eBay selling tool you need can be tough. To start out, go for the basic package. You can always upgrade if you find you need to later. At the present time, the basic version is only $4.99 per month, so it won’t put a big dent in your budget. If you have a small to medium amount of sales to manage per month, this is all you need. You also get a 30 day free trial with the basic version, so if you decide it’s not right for you and your business needs, you can cancel before your trial is up and not waste any money.

The Pro version offers more tools for higher volumes of sales. If you have a large inventory to manage, the Pro version is probably a better choice for your business. At the moment, the pro version is just $14.99 per month, and it also offers a 30 days free trial. The basic Selling Manager is also free for basic store subscribers, and the Selling Manager Pro tool is available for free to those with a premium or anchored store.

Both tools have software that needs to be downloaded to be utilized. Both software programs support just about any operating system, so you shouldn’t have a problem with compatibility issues. Once the software is downloaded, your eBay selling links will automatically be replaced with your Selling Manager links, making it easy to use the selling tool with your current selling methods.

The software makes it easy to list and re-list your auctions, view scheduled listings, sold items, and closed auctions. You can track your sales, sent bulk invoices and e-mails to customers, and easily leave feedback for all of your buyers using the software. For record keeping purposes, the Selling Manager also lets you download or import your sale information to your computer or into a new Excel spreadsheet, making it easy to track your sales for tax purposes, or for your bookkeeping needs.

The Selling Manager can make boring and tedious tasks quick and easy to manage. You can keep track of your auctions with ease, and stay in contact with your buyers with the click of a button. This eBay tool makes it simple to manage your eBay home business right from your computer without needing to log into eBay, and can boost your efficiency, working like a dedicated employee for you around the clock.
