A successful photographer must pay close attention to all of each business obligation and must find a balance that keeps his or her business thriving. It takes more than just talent to get ahead in the marketplace. Strong business skills are just as important. Best Business Practices for Photographers covers the essential business topics that professional photographers need to know in order to succeed. It does not focus on taking pictures, starting a photography business, or selling photography, but rather explains how photographers can meet important business objectives. Instead, it covers the focal points of best practices–best practices in interacting with clients, best practices in negotiating contracts and licenses, best practices in business operations. This book provides a roadmap for successfully navigating these, and many other issues, facing photographers today.Used Book in Good Condition

Make $$$s Selling Dirty Old Mugs and Teacups on eBay


Thank you for choosing my eBook which I hope will help you earn a good living selling one of the most collectable of all items, namely mugs and teacups.
I have been selling on eBay for more than ten years and for most of that time
I’ve passed on my knowledge about eBay as editor of London-based print newsletter, ‘eBay Confidential’.

I’ve covered making money buying and selling mugs and teacups in great depth on my websites and in newsletters and I know that information has helped readers worldwide make money on eBay.

That’s because I only ever write about business models that work incredibly well and because the same techniques can be used no matter where in the world you live and work – as long as you have access to eBay, that is!

Reasons for Selling Coffee Mugs on eBay

Go get a mug of tea or coffee because I want you to take your time reading this report which is packed with really incredible prices paid for quite common objects, and today’s idea genuinely can make a useful part-time income or a fabulous full-time income for almost anyone.

But before you start reading, actually before you put tea or coffee into its receptacle, take a look at the mug you’ve chosen. Or the teacup? Look round the sides, take a glance inside, have a gleg at what’s printed on the bottom.

What do you see?

An advertisement, perhaps, or a painting of a dog? Is there a name on the mug or cup telling who the artist or maker is or identifying a painted or transfer printed topographical view?

Do you think your mug is old or quite new?

Might anyone else want your mug – as a decorative piece, for instance – or because it features a popular collecting theme or celebrity?
Or, more importantly, because it’s a rare collectible or just an attractive item that several other people might like to own and will pay high prices for on eBay!

And would you be surprised to learn that some mugs and cups, looking very ordinary at boot sales and flea markets and usually priced low, might actually be worth hundreds of dollars (or pounds or other country currency) on eBay or other online marketplace?

At this point I should point out that mugs and teacups are popular and high priced sellers on most eBay country sites, and that is why you’ll find some examples in this report listed as having sold in dollars and others in pounds or other country currency. I could, of course, have changed prices to reflect their overseas currency equivalent, but decided against that due to the fact that currency equivalents rarely stay the same for more than a few hours at a time.

You’re going to be amazed at the sheer profit potential on offer today.

Read on to learn more.

But when Desh learns that the bioterror plot is just the tip of the iceberg, he is thrust into a byzantine maze of deception and intrigue, and becomes a key player in a deadly game he can’t begin to understand. One that is certain to have a dramatic impact on the future course of human history. . .
