Too many Webkinz?
Nov 28th, 2007 by estreet

Here’s your answer to, “What do I get them this year?”

road kill

Here’s the site:  www.roadkilltoys.com  

According to Ananova.com:

The first to be launched is Twitch the Raccoon which comes complete with its own body bag to keep the maggots out, reports Metro.

Twitch also has an identity tag revealing it was “run over over by a milk float last Thursday, near the Hangar Lane Giratory system in London”.

A zip on each side of the toy allows the owner to remove Twitch’s innards and stuff them back in again. A tyre print runs across its back.

Creators, Compost Communications, style themselves ‘toy terrorists’ and according to their website: “We squash and burn and bludgeon and maim. But we’re also toy fanatics like you. We love toys.”

Big Crumbs part deux
Nov 25th, 2007 by estreet

BigCrumbs.com released their feature set 2. It includes some nice stats on referrals.

On 14 people in my first generation of referrals, I made $.36 in the past 12 months. I did a lot better than my referrals because only 2 recruited any other people.

It’s a really a fun site to watch but I’m not going to get rich. It’s more productive to create my own content for affiliate links.

What is the deal with this seller? Clue me in
Nov 24th, 2007 by estreet

Kekoa64 is very strange. They have the most watchers – 64,000 watchers – of any listing on eBay.

Here’s what it is:
Make $100 per hour

kekoa64 sales statistics show they actually do sell $6K a month in “Make $100 per hour” guides.

Someone clue me in. What’s the deal with this listing?

More room for roombas – Fat Wallet 4% rebate
Nov 24th, 2007 by estreet

I noticed that quite a few people are searching for Roombas lately. FatWallet.com is a great site that offers you, the buyer, a 4% rebate on purchases at Roomba.com. I’ve successfully used FatWallet.com for years since they are a “local” company (Rockford, IL). Click on the image and give them a try.

Smiley Central
Nov 14th, 2007 by estreet

I signed up for Smiley Central’s affiliate program last week. Smiley Central animals

They have a really cute idea with the custom smileys but you may not realize how they make their money. They own smileycentral.com, myfuncards.com, mywebsearch.com, and a lot more. The advertising is pretty obvious but did you know that when you search in their search bar, they get affiliate credit for directing traffic to other sites?

They have toolbars for your browsers and Microsoft Outlook. Just click on the smiley of choice and it’s in your email. smiley central
I accidentally enter my searches into their search box on my toolbar when I really mean to search using my Google toolbar.

They have a neat business. They manage to provide enough value to users that it’s worth the annoyance of having an extra toolbar in your browser and Outlook.

Roomba – the other vacuum cleaner
Nov 13th, 2007 by estreet

I’m a Dyson fan. I’ll never get a Roomba because I love the power of my Dyson Animal. But the Roomba market on eBay is hard for me to ignore.

For example, based on October 2007 sales, the iRobot Roomba 530 has:
a sell through rate of 91%
an average end price of $233
a total monthly sales clip of over $31K

See the eBay sales stats.

Compare this to the iRobot Roomba 560:
a sell through rate of 66%
an average end price of $323
a total monthly sales clip of over $33K

These are great little markets. Any market with a success rate of over 60% is really good. I looked for big eBay sellers that specialize in the Roomba 530 market but I just found a few bronze level sellers, mybgis_1 and douglas33fl, who sell 3-6 a week.

Roomba 560, Roomba 550, iRobot Roomba, roomba on eBay

Overall, the roomba market is $219K per month.

I would definitely recommend picking up a few of these Roomba 530s at the special Thanksgiving sales and list them on eBay for the Black Monday shoppers. Buy at $170 or below to make a $50 profit. List it as a 3 day auction with a start price of $19.99, a BIN of $249 and charge $15 to $20 for shipping.

Woot! sells electronics to 20-26 year old men. Woot! sells 1 item per day until it runs out. What makes them great is that they have the most entertaining writing staff I’ve ever encountered.

They are a true ecommerce phenom!

Two days left on this coupon for FREE COFFEE. I’ve already had 2 free sleighbell brews but I donated the money to their books for kids in need.
