What’s simple and easy for one may be unrealistic for another. I would think it depends on each individuals skills and levels of technology expertise.

Some well know ways to earn money thru the internet and some not so well known are:

Sell on eBay, Etsy, Facebook & Amazon.
Set up your own website to sell your products.
Become an Affiliate for eBay, Etsy & Amazon, Target, Wal Mart, etc and earn commissions by and sending traffic to them.
Write Articles & Content for Blogs & Websites.
Sell your services on Fiverr.



If you are computer & internet proficient;

Start a Blog & Monetize it.
Set up a Google Account and earn with Adsense.
Built and/or manage websites.
Become a Reseller for Web Hosting Companies.
Develop and use a email list.
Manage Social Media for companies.

There are many more ways to earn on the internet. Assess your skills and see where your strong points are and where you might market those skills.

Many start with eBay and move forward from there. Before you disregard this idea, realize that eBay has hundreds of thousands of users that earn from a few dollars a month to hundreds of thousands a year or possibly more.

The users that earn the bigger amounts on eBay don’t talk much about it. Its their business and most business owners are not going to tell the world their business plan. Plus, they don’t want competition cutting in on their profits.

Most people that know me, realize that I supplement my income thru internet ventures and many ask how I do it.

The simple answer is, I use a plan with systematic activity on a regular basis. I set up ventures that bring in small amounts each day, week, or month and keep adding to them. Some of these have grown and produce larger amounts as time has passed. Many of them have flopped and produce nothing. But, I enjoy the process and have learned a lot along with seeing some profits along the way.

As many do, I started with eBay and still sell items there along with items on my website and various other sites. When I find something that works, I keep doing it as long as its profitable.

I wont try to discuss everything I do here, I’ll just present some information on eBay. I will be posting some info on other ventures later. If you wish to see them just comment on this post or register as a user on this site to receive updates.

Back to eBay information:

Registration as a Buyer or Seller is FREE.

You can register to sell on the top left corner of the eBay Home Page.
Try It Here.

Currently Sellers receive 50 FREE Auction listings each month.

A eBay Store is also available for approx. $20 and up monthly.

A Selling Fee of approximately 10-12 % is charged only if your item sells.

You will need a PayPal account to collect your money if you sell on eBay. Get one here: PayPal.com

A PayPal Account is FREE to set up, but a small flat Fee per transaction is charged along with approx 3% of monies collected.

Overall, it will cost approximately 13-15% of total monetary sales amounts to sell an item on eBay and have Paypal collect the payments.

Many individual sells that do not readily have products available, start out by selling used books, clothing and/or unwanted household items. If you wish to get started on eBay, browse their categories and see what you have that might be of interest to buyers on eBay.

The best way to get started is to register as a buyer and seller and start learning by doing.

Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding

Planning Your Perfect Wedding

A Few Important Wedding Tips!!

Congratulations! It’s time to plan for the big event.

Are you using a wedding planner or event coordinator?

If so, they will handle many of the arrangement details for you, but you will still need to be involved and make the final decision.


When is the special day going to be?

Consult your fiancee and set a date.

An item to note, many event facilities cannot hold multiple event son the same date and they also book far out into the future. So, you may want to be flexible on the date to get the venue setting your heart desires.

Whats your budget?

Before setting one, consider what type of wedding you want and estimate some expenses to see if your budget will cover your first choices.

If your budget is unlimited, decide what area you want to have your wedding in and start researching the venues available.

If your budget is low, you may want to consider having the event at your place of worship or his.

Also, some events charge different fees for certain days or holidays. Ask if there are dates or days of the week or month that the fees are lower.

What setting or theme do you want your wedding to be in?

You have a tremendous number of choices. Again, budget will probably dictate what your choices will be. What type of weddings have you attended in the past? You may have attended a friends wedding and experienced something there you would like to incorporate into your wedding.

Some choices are:

Your home, patio or pool area.
Friends home.
Your local place of worship.
Landmark venue buildings.
Meeting hall or clubhouse.
Country Club.
Bed & Breakfast.
Sports Stadium, etc.

Who is going to perform your wedding ceremony?

You will want to check with them to be sure they are available on the date of your choice.

Are you going to have a reception?

If so, will it be at the same place the wedding ceremony if performed?

Some things to remember:

Don’t forget the honeymoon reservations. You will need to coordinate dates for all aspects of your wedding including timing for your and your finance, available venues, pastor or wedding official, family & friends travel, caterers, etc.

How many guests will you have?

Don’t forget your photographer to record and document the event.

You will need the appropriate venue and facilities to accommodate them.

Some things to consider about your venue.

Is it available on your choice of dates?
Check out the rental contract. Does it have restrictions that do not meet your approval?
Will it accommodate all your guests?
Will the colors of the venue complement your colors?
Does it have areas for all the aspects of your event? Wedding, Reception, dressing areas for all participants, bride, bridesmaids, groom and his attendants, etc.
What kind of restrictions does the venue have? Start & end times, deposit, security, etc.
Does it have in house catering and/or a bar?
What parking is available?
Is public transportation available?
Are there close food and lodging accommodations available for out of town guests?
What supplies, furnishing and equipment is included? Chairs, tables, linens, etc.

Now may be the time to turn to our friend Google and research some photographer blogs and event venue websites.

You can get a lot of information from venue and photographer websites and narrow your choices down before making a physical inspection of your first few choices.

Make a list of everything you want to include in your wedding before you start your research to put together your perfect wedding.

Don’t forget to involve all your friends, family and the future in-laws in your planning and the ceremonies. After all, you want to get off to pleasant start with all in your upcoming marriage.

First: Location.. Location.. Location..

Location seems to be of the greatest importance. For those searching for a wedding venue, the location of theirs dreams is of the highest importance. It doesn’t necessarily need to be the closest, the most convenient or in the budget. It just needs to be what the bride really wants.

For a reception, it usually helps to be in a convenient location for all involved and in the allowed budget. Unless its a wedding reception of course and then these qualifications do not matter. Location just needs to fit within the brides dreams.

If your event is held at a out our town, expensive area, is hard to get to or requires expensive travel, you may be limiting the number of guests that will attend. Budget may not be of a concern to you, but it most certainly will be to some of your guests.

For a social gathering or social event, it certainly helps if location is convenient to all involved and if the location can provide all the amenities required for a successful event.

If so, You may want to narrow your search according to the criteria you are interested in. At times, the choices can be overwhelming.

Many factors influence the venue selection process. Obviously, you want the most impressive facility for your Wedding, Conference, Meeting or Social Event.

The Event Planner requires information to make an informed decision based on what each venue has to offer in terms of location, pricing and availability and amenities.

Budget and Location may be of primary interest to you as venue rentals vary tremendously according to price and location, along with size and according to what amenities are available.

What resources and amenities will you require?

For Example: Food & Beverages, Catering, Alcohol & Beverages, BYOB, Accommodations, Nearby Hotels, Event Coordinator, Wedding Planner, Photographer, Parking, Layout, Insurance, Accessibility, Acoustics, Capacity and Minimums.

Planning the perfect event takes a lot of time and effort and the right Venue will certainly help to bring your event together. Your time can be well spent by making a list of items you want your Venue to include and start by doing a search for a Venue that includes the most number of items you require.
