[HUMP DAY UPDATE] Going Dark, TradeBit News and Using Fiverr to Grow Your Business


Happy New Year!

Thanks for taking the time to read the "Hump Day Update."

Did you notice that some of your favorite websites "went dark" today (including Google, Craigslist, WordPress.org, Wikipedia, Namecheap, Warrior Forum, etc.) in protest against PIPA, the Protect IP Act, and SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, that are coming up for a vote before the U.S. Congress next week?

Even if you don't live in the US, this legislation WILL effect YOU and it's likely your government will follow the US by implementing similar legislation in your country.

These bills before Congress must be stopped and governments need to keep their nose out of the "free enterprise system" that exists on the Internet!

Filtering Duplicate Content:

TradeBit is stepping up their efforts to clear out their marketplace of duplicate product listings.

They are doing this to enable their product search to function more efficiently, increase the accuracy of the search results and to increase customer satisfaction.

TradeBit has implemented the first version of a duplicate checker script that is setting duplicate products to “private.”

What the duplicate checker script does is find duplicate products by listing title, description text, file name, etc., and the oldest file, the best described file or the most sold file will stay listed in the marketplace.

That means if you list a product for sale and an identical product is already listed in the marketplace, your product will not be shown in the TradeBit search results or on the category pages, but you can still list it on TradeBit to sell on your own sites.

You can, and should, read all the details by clicking the link below:

TradeBit's Free Ebook Reader App:

On a more positive note, TradeBit has moved their new ebook reader for Android to the final beta stage.

The TradeBit ebook reader features an ebook shop that includes all the ebooks listed for sale on Tradebit that are in .pdf format and people will be able to buy and download directly thru the App!

If you want to publish ebooks to be made available for download thru the new App, your ebooks must be in .pdf format (not zipped) and they must be listed in the Documents category.

The TradeBit reader is available for free on the Android marketplace and documents in PDF format are available on the new final beta release and can be purchased directly thru the App.

In Unleash The Power Of TradeBit, I mentioned using Fiverr.com to have unique ebook covers created for the products you list for sale on TradeBit, but Fiverr is a great resource for more than just ebook covers.

One of the best things about Fiverr, at least from a buyer's point of view, is that just about every product or service offered there is only 5 bucks!

So, let me ask you, have you ever thought about or tried selling your products (or services) on Fiverr?

If you've thought about selling on Fiverr but "never got around to it," what held you back?

If you tried selling on Fiverr but don't think you've been very successful, why do you think that is?

Perhaps it's because Fiverr's rules don't allow you to communicate directly with the people who purchase your gigs.

It's sort of a once and done marketplace that hinders your ability to build an on-going relationship with your customers.

So, if you want to use Fiverr to upsell your customers (or build your service business), you have to find a way around the rules without getting into trouble with Fiverr.

But, what if there was a way for you to list products (or services) on Fiverr AND build an email list so you can have a continuing relationship with your Fiverr customers without breaking any rules!

Would you be interested in finding out how to do that?

If you said "YES" then you'll want to check out "Fiverr Sales Funnel Hack," which is a special report that just came out this week.

I got it yesterday and immediately devoured the contents.

It's only 14 pages long but it details a method for how to use Fiverr to grow a list of BUYERS, and grow your business, including a step-by-step blueprint.

The download also includes as a bonus the fantastic video series, Fiverr Outsource Secrets, which walks you step-by-step thru the process of finding people on Fiverr to do your article writing, backlinking, social bookmarking, graphic design and more, and how to avoid getting scammed in the process.

Fiverr Outsource Secrets is worth waaay more than the price of the package, which is only $5!

Here's the link so you can check it out for yourself:

Think about it, some of the products you list for sale on TradeBit can also be listed for sale on Fiverr!

And, since you already have the title and description written, the product image and the download file prepared, it wouldn't take much effort to list your products on Fiverr and quickly set up a new income stream, a new customer base and begin adding new buyers to your email list.

(PLEASE NOTE: the link above takes you to the Warrior Forum, which is "blacked out" until 8pm Eastern time today, January 18th, to protest SOPA and PIPA)
