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".

Do the BOP!

Do the BOP!

April 13, 2009

Many new changes to report today. I would normally describe them in great detail, but I just did that, then realized I wasn't logged in and lost about four pages of blog. D'oh! Here's the much more abbreviated gist of what's now online:

  • Bonanzle Booth Optimization Project. It's now linked from the My Bonanzle page if you're a seller. This collection of pages is going to accumulate all of the combined wisdom from the Bonanzle team and our many savvy sellers. We're hoping to use the BOP to publish articles on everything from "How to Take Good Pictures" to "How to Effectively Promote on Facebook" and everything in between. Please visit the BOP page for more details, including how you can contribute your expertise to the Bonanzle Selling Community.
  • "Welcome to Bonanzle!" Newbies Yet another of our April changes aimed at driving return buyers to Bonanzle, we've added a greeting to our first time visitors who arrive via search to the item show page. Normally the home page would lay out the gist of Bonanzle, but we've learned that those who arrive via search often have no idea what site they're visiting or why they would want to return. We've also learned that a vast majority of these visitors visit one page, never to return. More details about the Welcome to Bonanzle blurb are available in the message forums.
  • Sales Origin Tracking. As promised in last week's blog, we've now enabled tracking of where sales are originating from for our premiere subscribers (you can see it on My Bonanzle -> View Stats). Currently you can see 1) Where the traffic originally arrived from (Google Organic, Google Products, Direct Traffic, Email etc.) 2) What pages (if any) on Bonanzle were visited before buying your items (Forums, Buy page, Profile page, etc.) and 3) What search terms were entered into search engines that led to finding your item.
  • See Feedback Left for Others. See pugs? I told you I would add it eventually! I think it was about two months ago I promised this feature would be "coming soon." Well, it has now landed.
  • Other Increment Design Improvements. As listed on the "What's New" page, a variety of other more minor design enhancements were added today to simplify navigation and generally make things better organized (main targets: item show page, My Bonanzle page, Advanced Booth Settings page).

This week we're hoping to make it easier to enter in extended item attributes, and to get those extra attributes better featured on the item show page. Along with our regular slate of bug fixes. Don't turn that dial.

Hope everyone had a great Easter, thanks for stopping by!

This store is full of a little bit of everything! With books, collectibles, movies , jewelry and toys there is plenty to choose from! From brand new to antique there is something waiting for you here at Pugs booth! I list new things often so please check back. Also visit my other booth, there I have custom and hand made costumes and clothing Thanks
