Obviously I have been at a loss for words about eBay for some time. My passion for the platform has waned, I no longer follow what happens or what rules have changed or why the fee structure has gone here or there, on a day to day basis. It is just too time consuming and […]

This is the first in a series I would like to call “What is Scott Doing Now”?
It seems that I have “gone missing”, people ask me where have I been, what am I doing? Well, I have been busy and have not had the time required to keep this and many of my other blogs current. A “BonanzleStore” (launching late summer 2009) is an outside website, separated from Bonanzle and allowing the merchant to brand themselves with a completely customized eCommerce Web 2.0 Site.
These changes have left me with a quandary about what to do with the All Business Auctions name and the two sites associated with it. The blog has experienced good traffic from the start and has been linked to from sites around the Internet. As anyone who has studied how WordPress blogs bring in organic traffic knows, the regular addition of content is key to maintaining a healthy blog. What to write about when eBay is no longer the focus for the brand All Business Auctions? It has been a quandary only accentuated by the expansion of iBusinessLogic and the client work we have been blessed with since changing our focus.
No one would argue that as a civilization we as humans have evolved. From pre-historic times when humans huddled together in small groups to survive the rigors of the natural elements they lived within, to the days of vast nation states that massed the will of their people into one awe inspiring force. Social networks of all kinds have been at the core of the human experience.
Countdown to the new show…
Hope you all stop by the TalkShoe site after dropping by AgentsofRevenue.com
John and I will be glad to see you in the chat room, and we are looking forward to everyone joining the conversation…
The idea is simple, No BS eCommerce, eBay and eBusiness. We won’t be selling and DVD sets and we won’t be pulling any punches when it comes to sharing our opinions about anything to do with the industry. We know that as co-hosts we will not always agree on every subject but this is also what we think will make us unique.
John and I have been jabbing back and forth on Twitter – red and blue style, in the tradition of the political season for several weeks now.
Twibler does not post any statistics about increases in sales due to the use of the service, and I suspect they never will. Are you really ready to bet your social marketing plan on a single untested and ill conceived RSS feed reader for eBay?
Let me please go on record with the view that this ban on telephone numbers and address information is ridiculous protectionism. If this policy actually goes into effect, I think it will irrevocably harm eBays standing with brick and mortar business sellers.
eBay is transitioning from eBay 1.0 to eBay 2.0, this transition will not be without pain. We are in a period of puberty for eBay…

After posting my most recent article about eBay North American GM Stephanie Tilenius and her answers to my Digital Download questions at Catalyst 2008… I wanted to be sure I was not too harsh and had presented the case from a sellers perspective fairly. I am not an eBay basher and would prefer to work […]
