3ds1 300x300 Buy Nintendo 3DS And Make Money TODAY

Nintendo recently accounced a brand new and innovative handheld device. This device will change the way the world plays video games – It is the NINTENDO 3DS. The FIRST handheld that brings 3D gaming to lif – and guess what -There are NO STUPID GLASSES TO WEAR!

Just about every single store is accepting pre-orders for the 3DS that will be released on March 27,2011.
However, if you want one of these bad boys, I suggest you secure your pre-order.

Here is some info about the 3DS

    Nintendo 3DS is a groundbreaking hardware release that brings 3D gaming to the handheld market for the first time. The fourth major release in the DS product line, the Nintendo 3DS utilizes 3D Slider functionality and an improved top LCD display to present a glasses-free 3D effect on compatible games, while giving players the option to moderate the effect as they see fit. Taken together with additional features including full analog control in 3D game environments, motion and gyro sensors that transfer the movements of the handheld into the game, 3D camera functionality, an adjustable stylus and full backwards compatibility and you have not only a must-have system, but a revolution in handheld gaming.

Nintendo 3DS

As with every new gaming device – there are already many of these items being sold on ebay. One thing you probably DON’T know is that – PEOPLE ARE ALREADY MAKING MONEY! If you search completed auctions on ebay, you will see that MANY auctions are already selling for more than $250. Does this make any sense to you? Well, it should. It means that this is an item that has “easy money” associated with it.

This is is not even sold out and still making money. Amazon is selling the Nintendo 3DS Buy Nintendo 3DS And Make Money TODAY for $249.99 and ebay has auctions that ended for about $260 already.

This product will most definitely sell out – Dont be kicking yourself in the ass in a few months when this becomes the hottest item and biggest seller. I personally recommend buying it from Amazon Buy Nintendo 3DS And Make Money TODAY since they have free shipping and no tax in most states. You will not get charged until the item ships, in case you are low on $$ right now. Also, if for some reason this item does not sell out – you can always return it icon smile Buy Nintendo 3DS And Make Money TODAY

I have been buying and selling on ebay for almost 10 years now. I have over 1,250 positive feedback and have easily dealt with more than 10,000 different products totaling more than 6 figures.

It is extremely easy for anyone to sell something on ebay and there are tons of sellers – however if you are a seller, then you surely need at least 2 buyers. Let me explain – If you have an item listed for sale for say $10 and you only have 1 buyer (bidder) then your item will ONLY sell for $10. Now say you have 2 buyers your chances of selling that item for more greatly increases. Those 2 bidders might end up getting into a “bidding war” and drive up the price of your product tremendously.

So how does one start selling items successfully? Well there are dozens of factors to consider such as marketing your product on forums and building up your feedback but the most important is: finding the best day to end your auctions

I have ended auctions at just about every hour on each day and have out what days work and what don’t. I am here today to help you make the most money from your auctions.

Best days to end auctions

I have listed the best days and time to end auctions based on my personal experience. First I will start off with the things that you should NOT – actually NEVER – do. Then I will go through my personal times and days that produce the best results – aka make me the most money

NEVER DO THIS!

  • END an auction on a holiday
  • End an auction during the morning, early afternoon or late at night. Heres why: no one is online during these hours! Think about what time you are online and use that as a judgment.
  • End auctions on these days: Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Friday

FOLLOW THESE RULES TO MAKE THE MOST MONEY!

Here is what you have been waiting for – the best days and time to end auctions. I personally have been using these methods for years

  • End auctions when EVERYONE is using the internet! Evenings – At around 8 or 9 PM – This is after everyone gets home, has dinner, and has some time to wind down and relax. Then most Americans log onto the internet which greatly increases the chances of someone remembering they wanted to buy something off ebay
  • Lunch time – everyone needs a break from their day and around noon most people do online. These are the 2 best times to end auctions
  • Best DAYS to end auctions: Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday,

Why these days?I have found that Sunday evenings are much much better than friday and saturday. Friday is the end of the workweek and millions of people go out to dinner, a movie, or spend time together with a family or friends, etc – basically they are NOT on a computer. Saturday doesnt work well either since most people are relaxing or doing something else. Sunday is the end of the week and the day most people spend online. The weekend is almost over and what better way to spend the day than being online? Wednesday is another good day because its mid week and allows people to buy something and if they need some extra cash, they can wait till the end of the week before paying you. Ebay allows a seller a minimum of 4 days to pay for an item. The last good day is Thursday based on the same reasons as Wednesday.

Promote your items!

Now that you know the best days and time to sell – it is time to promote your auctions! There are tons of ways to promote but personally I use forums to boost any potential profit. I sell many collectibles such as toys and am an active member in many online forums. Make sure to find a forum that has a buy/sell section and utilize it!

What do you think of these tips? What tips/methods do you use to sell and make the most money?

make money with collectibles

Ever since I was a young kid, I always wanted to find new ways to make money. I used to collect baseball cards, video games, and hot wheels – then I would buy a beckett or a price guide and see what each item was worth and how much I could sell them for.

Well, not much has changed since then – I am still looking for better ways to make money and how to find the next “rare” item.

For many years, I have bought books, read websites, joined forums and more in order to teach myself how to find a potential rare collectible – well that has ALL changed. Now in addition to reading things online – I am WATCHING TV and learning about MANY great items that I would have NEVER KNOWN ABOUT!

Watching TV is not only relaxing but is also extremely educational. Watching TV also provides you with visual items so the image will retain in your memory better.

Today there are SO MANY collecting shows that it is just about impossible to miss them when watching TV. Some are good and others are a waste of time. I am going to list my favorite shows to watch that have taught me something new about rare collectibles. I strongly suggest watching these shows if you want to learn.

PAWN STARS

This is a no brainer. Pawn Stars is one of the best collectible shows. The owners get to see MANY great unique items that most of us will never see in our lifetime. It is also a great way for people to learn the value of collectibles. The thing that annoys me the most are the customers – I never understood why someone would sell something for half of what is it worth? Yes, I know people like cash right away – but if I have a collectible that is worth $1,000 I will NOT take $500 for it. PS – If you have collectibles you can’t sell EMAIL ME! haha

AMERICAN PICKERS

The only reason this show comes second is because it aired after Pawn Stars. If you are a true collector who likes to find gold then this show is for you. These 2 pickers travel across the US in hopes of finding rusty gold. Every single episode has something new and no 2 things are ever alike. Evertime I watch American Pickers, I learn something new and write down the item that they found – just in case I ever come across this item on ebay or at an estate sale.

STORAGE WARS

Storage Wars is based on a concept that I have yet never done. It is about a few people who travel mostly around California buying storage lockers. The tricky part about this business is that they NEVER know what each storage locker contains. They can only use flashlights in order to guess what’s inside each locker. Another interesting fact is that these lockers were owned by people who defaulted on their storage payments. So remember to pay your storage fees or your contents will become someone elses. I like watching this show because each locker is different and the results vary each show. Not every locker is profitable – it is a CHANCE. The hosts talk about their best finds (which has been amazing) and each episode there is at least one person who easily makes a few thousand in profit!

AUCTION KINGS

This is the newest show that I just started to watch. Auction Kings is a show about different people bringing in items to sell at auction. Picture a real life ebay sale – that is what an estate sale is. I have attended estate sales and this is exactly how it is – minus the cameras. Each episode has someone bringing in a rare item and it is sold to the highest bidder.

So there you go – those are the BEST Collectible TV shows to watch. I have personally learned many new things from each show and even found a toy car that was on American Pickers at a recent estate sale.
If you want to make money, you will with the right research.

25th anniversary red wii mario bundle sold out

Time to add another item to my “sold out” list. I have mentioned this MANY times over the last few months – The 25th Anniversary Mario items WILL BE hot and they WILL sell out. Guess what? I was right – The 25th anniversary RED mario edition Wii is just about impossible to find online. Walmart, Target, AND Amazon are all sold out.

I HIGHLY doubt these will come back in stock since Nintendo mentioned they will NOT be releasing these systems again. I have seen these systems already selling for about $240 on ebay (MSRP is $200) and they will only increase in value over time.

Keep checking Amazon for the RED WII 25th Anniversary Nintendo Wii Is SOLD OUT but I think its a goner!

However, there is STILL HOPE! If you are looking to get a 25th anniversay mario product, then I suggest you buy the DSi XL Red Mario Bundle with Mario Kart 25th Anniversary Nintendo Wii Is SOLD OUT! It is still available – and trust me – this WILL be gone soon!


Remeber to check out my AMAZON Page for more daily deals and potential sell outs! ALSO subscribe to my RSS feed (on the right) to never miss an opportunity!

blog money

It seems like everyone today has a blog. It is one of the easiest things to create and requires little to maintain especially with the help of wordpress. However, making money from a blog is a completely different story and is in another world of its own.

Every month, there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who search google for “ways to make money.” If those people searching for these magical ways find websites or blogs, they are NOT making money – they are simply losing money AND time – plain and simple. Do not think that buying an ebook or paying someone else for money making tips is real. It is a lie and the only person you are helping make money is the owner of the site or author of the ebook. So don’t be a statistic looking for ways to make money – be proactive and learn to make money on your own – not by buying an eBook or paying for proven money tips.

Adsense

If you are looking for ways to make money with a blog then you need to do extensive research. One of the main sources of income for a blog is through advertising – especially using google adsense. It is free for anyone to register and with the right marketing many people can make hundreds or thousands of dollars a month. Yes there are people who make this much in a day – but this is NOT realistic for 99% of the rest of us. There is ALWAYS an exception – someone who makes thousands from ads each day, and guess what? Chances are that HE IS SELLING AN EBOOK to help you reach that amount – PURE BS. If you want to make money – you need to learn from scratch.

Header Ad

The most important aspect of adesense is ad placement. This is known as placing ads in a “hot zone” – which is referred to an area that is seen first by visitors. This is an ongoing trial and error process. Personally the BEST ad placement is right under the header. This is a hot zone that everyone reading your blog sees. If there is only text, then most people will not think twice about clicking it. However, if there is an interesting picture or video there, you might get someone to click it – thus making you some money. I suggest using a leaderboard which is 728×90 pixels. This has been the best one on my site.

Another great way to improve your chances of making money is to place ads into the body of your post. If people read your post and a relevant ad shows up, there is a great chance that it will be clicked on. I recommend placing a button (125×125), small square (200×200) or a square (250×250) which is the biggest. A square is working the best for me and is shown below


Paid Advertising

Another way to make money is to have people PAY to adverstise on your blog. It is a very easy way to make money. You simply charge a set amount for either a link to place on your blogroll or a small image – usually it is a 125×125 button. You must realize this – people advertise because they want it to benefit them. If you have a new blog that does NOT have pagerank – then I DO NOT suggest looking for advertising. No one will pay you for ads on a blog or site that does not have pagerank or gets consistent traffic.

You need to spend the time building links, gaining traffic, and acquiring pagerank BEFORE you start asking people to advertise on your site.

Provide a Service

If ads are not working out, then one of the easiest ways to make money is by providing a service. People come to blogs in order to READ something interesting and LEARN something new. If you have a personal blog that does not get traffic – you should not be surprised. Personal blogs are tacky (unless you have readers who enjoy it) and usually dont get much traffic. If you want to make some money provide a SERVICE – NOT an ebook – an actual service. Help someone build a website, show someone how to sell on ebay, start some type of an online business, etc etc. The options are endless. Personally, I use my blog to help other people make money with toys and collectibles. I write about items I think will sell out and how I go about finding great items to resell. I also write about my website projects and what I am doing to monetize them. I am providing my readers a service which makes them come back to my blog. Don’t expect people to click on ads and come back to your blog if you only talk about things you ate for breakfast.

It will NOT happen overnight – but with the right amount of time and research you can start making a steady stream of money and gain pagerank. I know there are MANY other ways to make money but I believe that both of these methods are the most secure ways of making money. I also use both of these methods and they have been working out well. I DO NOT believe in SELLING personal ebooks. I don’t fall for gimmicks. I believe that everything you read on a blog should be free and hey, if you click on an ad you find interesting, I thank you icon smile Why Your Blog Is NOT Making Money

What ways do you make money? What type of advertising has helped you?

2010 w american silver eagle

One of my goals is to help other people make some extra cash. Most of the deals I write about are instant – meaning you buy an item for $X and can flip it right away for $XX profit.

One item that I enjoy buying is silver – especially silver coins. The price of silver has skyrocketed drastically and it does not seem to be slowing down. One very quick and easy way for someone to make money is with silver coins. Well, now might not be the best time to buy a silver coin collection from someone, but it is the BEST time to buy one coin that I came across: The 2010 W Silver Eagle.

For those who are not familiar with silver coins – the US Mint releases an American Eagle coin every year – in gold and silver. The silver coin weighs 1 ounce and is made of .999 PURE Silver. The US Mint also releases 2 versions (well they did) – a regular coin and a proof. A proof is a coin that has a mirror like finish and tends to be more sought after than the regular version. The proof coins are also minted at West Point – which is why they have a W mint mark. Not many coins are minted at West Point – which is another reason they are highly collectible.

The US Mint has NOT produced a proof since 2008. That was the LAST year to buy one – until NOW. The US Mint is now selling the 2010 West Point Silver American Eagle on their site for $45.95 – which is the cheapest price you will find it anywhere. Any coin shop is going to charge you more. Ebay is already selling these coins for $50+. Sure that is not a lot of money but this proves that once this coin is sold out – prices WILL skyrocket. Silver is currently right around the $30 an ounce mark – so a $15 markup for a beautiful coin is not that bad… especially since they are ALREADY being sold over MSRP. So don’t be one of the suckers who buys this coin from a coin shop, ebay, or online. Be the person who secures these coins – hold onto them till they sell out – then take them to ebay/craigslist/etc. O yeah, and feel free to throw 10% my way icon smile Easy Money 2010 W Silver Eagle Coin

Here is a DIRECT LINK to the coin from the Mints site.

make easy money

There is NO such thing as a secret formula, there is no mathematical equation and there sure as hell is no tiny fairy sprinkling pixie dust on select individuals – There is NOTHING secret or hidden about making money. If you want to make money you will – If you are trying and it’s not working out, then you ARE doing something wrong.

Making money requires 2 things – Time and Marketing. It takes a hell of a long time to research products, learn new things, and finding out what to sell. Once that phase is complete, marketing takes over. You can have something worth tens of millions of dollars in your possession – but if you don’t have anyone to sell it to, then you are shit out of luck my friend.

I have been buying and selling for about 6 years now and over the years have found a few niches that work perfectly for me. I specialize in vintage hot wheels from the late 60′s and early 70′s. I have easily made anywhere from $5 – $10 thousand over the years in PROFIT. To some that may not seem like much – but to others it can be viewed as an inspiration. I am happy with it because like I said – it is easy money – and who doesnt like easy money?

The very first step to making money is finding out what to sell. Don’t go for items that everyone can purchase – stay away from computers and other electronics that get replaced every 6 months. You wont make money and it does cost a lot to initially start selling. Now there is nothing wrong AT ALL with buying the latest iPhone or any other hot electronic for MSRP and then selling it to some hardcore chump — er, I mean “enthusiast” who didnt get a chance to buy one at cost. No offense to these people but I think its a bit absurd to pay $900 for an item that can cost $400 – well I’m usually the seller icon wink Its Easy To Make Money

It is also important to stay one step ahead of the game – YOU need to find the trends. I tell people to stay away from trends only because there is a slight room to make a decent profit on something when EVERYONE knows about it. If you spot an item that is hot, and the item has been sold out for months in stores then by all means jump on it, buy it, and sell it for profit.

If you are new to my site, then I suggest you take a look around – I have a section that discusses the hottest products to buy and sell.

Finding something to sell that is profitable is the hardest part of your job – but once that is done,the money will start rolling in.

I like to buy and sell collectibles – I mainly deal with redlines as I already mentioned but I also sell these various items (in case you are stuck) Silver coins, limited edition video games, gaming systems (during the holidays), Kaiju figures, vinyl toys, and I just recently started selling domains and building websites. If you want to learn how to start a collection, then please read THIS POST! That post goes through the step by steps to starting a collection.

After you find out what to sell it is time to RESEARCH – learn everything you can, and MAKE MISTAKES. You will not learn anything unless you make mistakes. I just started buying and selling domain names. The first domain names I bought were terrible! Absolute crap – but after reading forums and tutorials, I know have a better understanding on how to spot a potentially valuable domain. I recently paid low $xx for a domain name and it sold for $xxx.

After you did your homework it is now time to Market. Personally, I like to sell my items on forums – you will find people specifically looking for the items you sell and will generally get a good price on them. I also like to sell on ebay – I think the fees are a JOKE and the rules for sellers SUCK but there is NOTHING better than ebay. Until someone builds a better site, nothing can compare. Ebay allows you to sell worldwide, reaching millions of people that would never think about joining a forum. It is a great way to get more money from your product and build feedback.
I also like to list items on craigslist and kijijij. Both are FREE and both have led me to sell items and avoid fees.

Finally I want to say this: NEVER give up – Just when you think you down on your luck and ready to give up, I strongly encourage you to reconsider and keep going forward. If you want to make money you will. Repeat that and make it your motto. Everyone faces rough times – The best profit is made when people are at their lowest. Use this as motivation.

I also encourage you to keep coming back to my site. I will be posting many potential deals as the year goes on. I am going to post items for you to buy that I think will sell out and be profitable. So if you want to make some extra money on items I ask you to come back!
