Establishing your own E-commerce site is not like what it used to be. There are thousands of competition that is all too willing to get a bigger share of the pie. Every scheme and method you can find to augment your sales would be very beneficial.
We have got to admit to ourselves. Most of us are into it for the money. We are not going to waste our time and effort just for the fun of it. Many sites would not wait until hell freezes over just to see their profits. While there are some who takes things lightly there are always those who would rather see profit any given day.
It is common knowledge that without traffic we have no business. Like any business, without any customers you don’t get sales. Traffic represents all the people that gets a chance to see what you have to offer. The more people who see your products the more people there would be to buy them.
Nobody puts up an E-commerce site that doesn’t expect profit. We have a startup capital that needs to be regained. With a consistent traffic, we at least have a fighting chance to achieve that probability. Monetizing your traffic would optimize your chances of making the best out of it.
I think you already know about Writer’s block, the time when bloggers do not have any idea to write blog post. There is a list to help you to find post ideas and it worked all time. What about if you have something is “whispering” in your mind and you think you can make it as a blog post but then it is dissapear quickly right just before you write it? Several time it happeed to me. I lost the idea. It’s gone with the wind.
To avoid that it happens again, I have to write it somewhere quickly. My choice is to buy a notebook and have it with me always. It works. This post was noted on it and other post ideas is waiting to be published.
Another tool to keep your post ideas is by record it in a voice recorder. I am considering to use it.
So, where do you keep your post ideas?

I have a HP 3535 DeskJet printer which is not being used for a long time. The reason is not because I have a new printer, but the ink cartridge is broken down. I am planning to buy new ink cartridges but the price for two cartridges is the same as buying a new printer. :(
Printers are cheap today but after you bought them you will realize that printer’s ink cartridge is cost you much, as what I faced. I think ink cartridges are “money maker” for printer manufacturer. They sell printer at low price so customers can buy it in affordable price. In order to work, printer needs ink cartridges. Printer manufacturer of course also produce ink cartridges. If there are a lot of printers need new ink cartridges, then printer manufacturers start to gain profit from them. Now what you need is how to find ink cartridges with low price but same quality for your printer.
Lucky for you who live in UK, there is a company which provides cheaper alternatives up to 75% less for ink cartridges, in the same quality. Inkshop.co.uk sells ink cartridges which are compatible to HP, Epson, Canon and other printer brands. You can order it online from their website; http://www.inkshop.co.uk. A free delivery for UK customers is another advantage you should consider.
Blogs have increased popularity over this past months. Many people have started to create their personal blogs to express their thoughts and feelings. Internet companies have also started their blogs to inform consumers on the latest product news and reviews.

Many people spend time reading blogs. People read their friend’s blogs, their favorite author’s blogs, blogs on topics that they are interested in, and blogs on product reviews. With the increasing popularity of blogging, it is even feared that people rely on blogs to get the latest news.
