Welcome To The Selling Lounge!

We are a friendly forum where sellers help sellers to help our/your online E-Commerce Business grow by having a place of resources and support along with help in promoting ourselves and each other.

I have been selling on line since 2003 in which I started out with eBay where I was doing very well as a Powerseller until all the fee hikes and changes. I then opened up my first Website almost 2 years ago and have been a member of a few very nice informative E-Commerce Forums and have learned so much about this new world of online selling that I wanted to have all my information in one place to help me succeed and by doing that helping others at the same time.

I have noticed that there is a ton of information out there on the net to help us become successful business owners and there are certain things that we must do in order to get our products out there and noticed and to get the buyers to us.

So I'm hoping that we can all share with each other "our tips" of "what works" and "what does not work".

QuicklySell.comWe are all about helping Families! is free to sell, free to list, free to purchase, no final value fees! 100% FREE! Its not ever about the money for QuicklySell, it's about our members! was created Sat, February 3rd, 2001 based on the fact that we were tired of Internet websites losing interest in the members that they had established. We noticed a trend that most websites become nothing more than a money machine, and when there is no consistent way to make money, websites lose the focus of what they had started, and eventually fail on the promises to their members.

In searching the internet I personally felt that there had to be a way to create a site that could cater to all internet users. We knew that money had to be a part of this equation since we all know that running a website can become an expensive endeavor. So we established a web design company back in 1999 in conjunction with Jason Aud & Tranz2000 Designs. During the process of creating these websites for our clients, most of our clients asked our recommendations of where and whom we hosted our websites with. At that time we had no real answers because we were hosting with either free or extremely low cost or low quality service hosting companies. This opened up a new area for us, to seek a direction to provide hosting for our clients. After many failed attempts with many companies, we determined that we should start our own hosting company. This allowed us total control of web design and hosting, and also allowed us the speeds necessary to not only provide quality service to our clients, but for our own personal websites as well.

Because I am also an avid auction user, without mentioning individual sites, I will just say that the fees were costing me more than I was able to make worth my while, as this was just a hobby. Because of the ability we now had to create and host any website we wanted, I felt I could run an auction site as well, if not better than the huge Corporate America sites, and provide better service. I didn't like the fact that when sending an email to these Corporate America sites requesting assistance that it would take weeks, if at all, to get a response. Additionally, my specific questions were rarely answered, auto responders don't count. With all of this in mind, I set out to see if it was possible to create an auction site that was geared for users that the Corporate America sites had abandoned in lieu of chasing the all mighty dollar. In January of 2001 I began the search to find a auction script that could assist me. There are few available, and the ones that are, are either expensive, poorly designed, or were not really intended to handle large amounts of auction listings. This process of elimination took about 6 agonizing months with nothing but failure. So we hired our own personal programmer to begin the task of creating a solid and functioning auction. Let me tell you this was not an easy task, and is and will be a constant work in progress.

We are in our 8th year now of existence and we have learned many things. We have learned that without our members our website doesn't stand a chance, and that we must constantly care for you all just like we knew we needed to from the beginning.

Come give us a try, you just might be surprised at the way things are done here. We care about our users and we will help in anyway possible to make your time more enjoyable. We know you have a lot of choices and we thank you for taking the time to look at our site. QuicklySell has become more than an idea, it is becoming a reality with a life of its own. Take a look around, you will see what we mean!

Best Wishes!

Baysbeauty Skin Care

Baysbeauty Skin Care

If you are anything like me you have spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars and many years trying to find that right/perfect skin care product just for you! I have shopped discount stores, department stores, and the television. I have spent high dollars on products for all those years with no results except wasted money until 10 years ago when I started using Jafra faithfully. The results were and are unbelievable just after my first cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. I couldn’t keep my hands off of my face because it never felt so clean and silky smooth before.

When I was a teenager I bought Jafra one and loved it, but didn’t think I could afford it so I didn’t continue with the products which was a big mistake. What I didn’t realize at the time was that Jafra goes a long ways. You only use a little bit of this product so it lasts longer and it really isn’t that expensive to use. A little goes a long way = you use less!

So as you can see over the many years I had spent more money than I can recall trying every product out there with terrible results until I came back to Jafra. I will never again use another skin care program as long as I live except for Jafra Skin Care.

I love how my complexion feels and looks. My complexion isn’t Mattie, oily, or dewy looking; it’s perfect. I have a Glow!

I will no longer have to look for that right product ever again since Jafra has just the right product for every skin type. We have skin care for the whole family; babies, children, teens, women and men at discount prices.

Content Writing For Your Sites

Your Main Page is Important!
The main page/home page is the first thing that a visitor will see and extremely imperative that you grab their eye and their interest in the first few seconds that they arrive.

Make sure that your content grabs the reader with well written useful information about your product and it is extremely important that your content is spelled correctly and makes sense. Remember you are trying to sell yourself and your product in the first few seconds!

Put yourself in the shoes of your visitors coming to your site. Would you stay there long seeing what you see on your site? What are you looking for when landing on a website?

You need to focus on a few factors. You want to generate high traffic through the search engines and also you want your site to retain your visitors which mean sales and return sales.

You will need to be writing your content for both the search engines and your visitors and this is important to remember while you are writing your content for your main page/landing page of your site.

DO NOT put up a lot of graphics that take away from your content as that can draw your visitors’ eye away from things you want them to focus on.

Make sure that you have keywords in your content and have linking words to either products on your site that you sell or to your categories of the products that you sell. You want to get the traffic on your site and in your site from bots, spiders and search engines. It is also nice looking to have an image of a product that you sell on your main page that links to that product.

DO NOT overpower the visitor with big images and big bold print! Make your site pleasing to the eye and easy to read.

Keep your main page content fresh and new. This means that from time to time you need to change your content around so that it isn’t the same thing all the time. You do not want a boring site.

So remember that your content on your main page should be accurately organized and written well for the advantage of all.

The Valuable Use Of Keywords
Keywords are extremely vital not only to search engines but they make it trouble-free reading for your visitors. Use a variety of keywords in your content to make your text flow freely and assist your visitors fully in understanding what you’re saying. And make sure that you do not overdo it by adding the same keywords over and over again as search engines do not like this and neither will your readers.

MAKE SURE your spelling is correct!!

Use this helpful Keyword Tool to get more ideas:

Your Content Tone And Language
Make your content page uncomplicated to read and make certain that it makes sense and easily understood. The easier your web page content is to read, the easier it can be fully understood and keep your potential buyer there. Keep away from the use of complex language unless it is absolutely essential.

You want shorter paragraphs and sentences to ensure an easy flow of reading for your visitor. Subheadings that clearly state the information in the following paragraph is nice to have to make it easy for your visitor to clearly find what they are looking for.

DON'T FORGET to use linking words and highlighted words as well, but try not to over do it.

Seo (Search Engine Optimization) is one of the most significant factors in search engine marketing for websites to utilize and achieve top rankings and increase unique visitors to your site which in turn equals sales!
