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".

*** NOTE: Just a quick reminder, we have an open door policy at RSD simply because without members feedback, this program can never succeed? If you have any suggestions, comments or problems with RSD we need to hear from you. You can contact myself directly through our support ticket system. That way you know I will receive it.

*** NOTE: As a free member you need to surf in order for your sites to be seen. You have to surf every 14 days to keep your account active - surfing even just 5 or 6 pages will keep your account active and your sites will keep getting hits. If you don't surf for 14 days, your account becomes 'Suspended'. It's your URLs that are suspended, not your account. You can 'Unsuspend' them by surfing a few pages

*Please support our community in every way you can. The more members we get signed up the more clicks your sites receive which = more
$$$$'s for everyone. Promote your referral link everywhere.


Just a reminder:

You can add the same link up to 3 times only. Ad your link 3, 7, 14, ...... days that way it will stay in rotation all the time. This helps get more traffic to your site, but also helps develop your brand awareness. Remember, the trick to all this is to keep your site in front of people, everyday as much as possible for the long run.
