If you are going to be in business online, you will
need to have access
to your home computer no matter where you go.
If you are running Windows XP, these remote features
are included in the
operating system. Set
it up and you
can log onto your home computer from any Internet connection.
This enables you to use your computer remotely just

dedicated to Jim proving to you that he is for real and is a credible

I know him and have
attended the seminar that he and
2 “The Obvious
Strategy” covers selling “hard goods” on eBay.
This is the way that most people perceive eBay.
Find something to sell, post it on eBay, and make a
profit on it.
The book discusses this and gives tips how to do
this well, but this is
not the main strategy that the book promotes.
3 “The Not-So-Obvious
Strategy” covers the real message of the book.
This is where Jim introduces information products as
great products to
sell on eBay. I
like this chapter
since my picture appears in it. In
fact, the group picture of the Huntsville Tim and Jim class that
appears in the
book was taken with my camera.
Jim covers the ways to
evaluate using eBay to your best advantage.
4 “Using the
Information Strategy” is a long chapter with eight subtopics.
4.1 “Quadrant 4
Success” relates back to chapter 3 where Jim dwells deeper into the
concept. This is
for creative people
who are not afraid to use eBay as an effective marketing tool.
4.2 “Why Information”
tells in detail why information products are the very best products to
4.3 “Let’s Find Your
Product” gets the creative juices flowing.
Jim leads you through many ways to research and find
a product to create.
This is a very helpful topic since this is where so
many people hit the

This is wasted time and effort that a little market

4.5 “What Sells Well”
gives you the tools to determine the keywords for what will sell well.
Choose topics that have high keyword searches.
This indicates the size of the market for the
4.6 “Use Info to Sell
More Physical Goods” tells how to create info products to help you sell
goods on eBay if that is your major eBay business model.
4.7 “The Back End
Strategies” addresses the building of a mailing list from all the

is a must

cannot keep from getting excited by what Jim explains in this video.
It shows how to set up eBay auctions to
automatically sell digital goods,
automatically accept payments, automatically deliver the product to the
customer, and automatically leave feedback after the sale.
This can all be done using PayPal and you do not
have to have your own
website. This is
the business model
that I am recommending to all boomer entrepreneurs!

This video is worth the
price that you have to pay for the book and it is a fraction of the
that is available in the book.
The rest of the chapter
covers the tools that you will need and where to find them.
Jim breaks each tool down into Do It Yourself, Do It
Yourself with a
Little Help ($), Or Pay Someone Else to Do It ($$).
The tools are Product

Jim’s new book focuses
on just what Boomer eZine has published in several of the past issues.
Jim writes about being an infopreneur, which is one
of the themes that we
like so well.
This is exactly what we are recommending for our readers. Jim goes into great detail and explains how to use eBay to sell and promote your products.
The great news is that
you can get this new book free if you have purchased his SSM book.
By itself SSM is a great education on how to use
eBay for more than just
auctions, but by getting the new book free for buying the old book it
is a real
