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.
Guilty as charged – your Honor!
We did it, we accepted advertising – oh the ghastly truth!
Will my Mom survive the embarrassment?
The Trading Assistant Journal has moved – we are no longer hosted on Wordpress.com under the domain name allbusinessauctions.wordpress.com. Please change your existing links to: http://tradingassistantjournal.com . Thanks!
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.
I logged into my Bonanzle.com account today and proceeded to the My Bonanzle home page. This is the central hub for all Bonanzle users, buyer or seller and serves as a control panel/information resource. Today I noticed one interesting update: This site currently has 49096 users This seems like a momentous amount of users and […]
I became aware of this new marketing initiative through the comments section of this blog. Suddenly I was innundated with positive comments about Bonanzle coming through my Blackberry. Apparently the Trading Assistant Journal was listed in this weeks to do list for the BAC.
eBay… Yes EBAY listened to sellers… I know this is a shock, just breathe deep – Take a moment to comprehend the full meaning of the statement above… Everyone knows how much and how fervent our opposition was to the “new links policy” from eBay, announced last May. Here are a few of our articles […]
With the amount of people following the Journal now, I thought it would be a good idea to test the waters and start an informal Network meeting place. This place is called: Trading Assistant Journal Network
Do you think presenting the idea of fear and retaliation has a positive impact on yours or eBay’s bottom line business.
We have started a new contest for readers of the Trading Assistant Journal and listeners of the eBay & Beyond Basics to Business Internet Radio broadcast.

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 […]
