Comedy Of Domain Errors & Apologies
Our Apologies to all of you who could not access our site since 2359 hours last Saturday!

This was due to an unusual error on the part of our registrars whom we have always relied upon to send us their Domain Renewal Notice BUT...

We have to accepts FULL responsibility because despite our remembering the renewal date was coming up in (then) a couple of months time - we allowed ourselves to get smothered in day-to-day 'survival' tasks e.g. changing over to a totally new computer Operating System etc. etc.

In addition, we had failed to take advantage of even one of the many desktop 'To Do Reminder' aids - so we completely forgot about the fact that bestauction.co.uk domain needed renewing!!!

The result - our site was down (inaccessible) for over nine whole days with the resultant losses!!!

We have put in place the necessary Reminder mechanisms so that we shall not make this mistake again!!! :-(

We have posted this Notice, not JUST to apologise to our loyal members and visitors but ALSO to emphasise to those of you who also have websites to make sure you have Your Renewal Reminders in place so you can avoid our error!!!

Very best regards,
Richard

A Merry Christmas!


The lights blurred as she stared at the Christmas tree. Noise equally distorted. Mmmerry Christmas, a day of happiness, joy and merriment? A faint whiff of alcohol carefully hidden by the coffee consumed with it. Body aching, sore, barley able to move…flu? Nobody knew the daily suffering, pain, fatigue, the guilt, the torture. Nobody knew how this had driven her husband insane, thrown her children into depths of depression, nobody knew…nobody!

How dare she be allowed the time to wrap all her presents and cards way before Christmas…allowed the time to do it, yet still fail! Fail to get things done that so many working people would kill to have such time. Yet she still failed, how lazy! What a time waster, is what people would say. They did not have to endure the debilitating fatigue, unable to even lift an arm to get a drink to her mouth some days!
‘It’s important to stay positive’ the words echoed around her head. Too fatigued to summon the strength to be able to implement yet another plan, yet another strategy to make her better…to fail…yet again, so much failure; Unable to put her poor family though anymore of this ridiculous torture, she lifted her glass for the last time ‘Merry Christmas!’ as she washed down the last of the medication, which was this time, actually going to finally release her and her family of the painful existence of living with M.E. The lights blurred, the music distorted, finally… a Merry Christmas!

New West-Hosting.com Great Service!


Well, we have been with WestHost now for three months, and so far so good, they have dealt with everything we have thrown at them from 'newbie' v.p.s. Questions through to increased site visitors – all with NO problems!


WebHost run even their basic packages on a v.p.s. System so, at least in theory, any problems which bestauction site may experience does not impact on WetHost's other clients. So far so good!


Their Help Desk has usually got back to us, we usually contact them by email, within two to three hours unless it's been a weekend and a required 'expert' may not be on duty until Monday. Although, to be fair, that only happened on ONE occasion before we became a client of theirs.


So with such a great service from them, we are looking to expand our customer and visitor bases and to adding to the services which we can provide to our Members!

Why not join us and see for yourself?
Here's to YOUR Success!!! :-)

Golden Eggs???

Don’t put your eggs in One Basket??

Are we all Missing the Golden Goose??

Siren Voices?
Many of us are bewitched by the siren calls to make our fortune on the Internet. Millions of us are thus tempted to ‘have a go’ every year! Sadly, official statistics suggest that 60% of us don’t survive more than three (3) months!!!
Why???
Lets face it; there are many reasons why many of us fail. As ebay (and other auction sites) recently pointed out – there are fewer buyers than sellers.
Indeed, whole new industries have arisen in the last few years promising to help you to deliver the traffic to your site (i.e. more visitors = more sales). They range from Search Engine Optimization techniques, through to the provision of better ‘targeted’ visitors to your site. All too often, despite our best efforts, all we manage to achieve is to receive loads of emails, offering us products or services we’ve neither asked for nor wanted, which put an unnecessary load on our site’s bandwidth! That’s an additional insult to the time we waste checking and pinging them!

All we wanted was either More Traffic to our Site or More Targeted Traffic to our Site! Either one of which should stand a chance of increasing our Sales and bottom line!

All too often, the Actual Visitors we get are too few (if any!) and sales are too few (if any!) – resulting in us going down before we’ve hardly started!

Whether your estore is ‘standalone’, i.e. your own website, or on a Mall/Auction Site, the problem is the same as for an Offline business – Traffic = Buyers!

Failure within those first months does NOT necessarily mean YOU’ve done anything wrong. If you’ve done your marketing, you’ve probably got your products/services and pricings right also!!!

e-Branch Expansion???
Offline businesses have known for many many years that one of the best ways to increase their bottom lines is to increase the traffic to their shops/offices etc. Unfortunately, without promotions (all too often Very Expensive) they’ve little or NO control over the foot-traffic passing by! Their biggest problem then is how to increase sales and their bottom lines.

One of the answers is to try to open branch shops/offices in other towns, cities and/or countries. This is often very expensive and requires very careful financial analysis. They are then faced with the equally large problem of Where to place those new Branches! This involves an awful lot of time and Market Research to try to ensure they get it right – First Time!

A New Branch serves to :-
  • Increase Public Awareness!
  • Increases Sales!
  • Lower Costs resulting in Better Prices for Customers and/or Better Bottom Line (Net Profit)!
  • More Customer Satisfaction because Customers Can Get to the Shop/offices More Easily than before!
e-Branches on the WWW!
Translate this formula onto the www – by opening ebranches you stand a Better Chance to :-
  • Increase Traffic to your ebranch AND your Main Site!
  • Increase Your Sales!
  • Increase Your Bottom Line (Net Profit)!
  • Improve Your Customers’ Satisfaction!
  • Improve Your Ability to Test-Market Your New Products/Services!
Where Can You Open Your new eBranch?
There are many web hosts where you can duplicate your site – many are either free or very low cost! The biggest problem with this is that you’re faced with the same problem of Getting Traffic to your new eBranch! Even if it doesn’t cost you an ‘arm and a leg’ for the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) normally needed to provide your customers with online security!

There are many online Malls and Auction Sites where you can set up your new eBranches – many of them give you Free Registration and Free Listings as well as providing free help and/or software to make opening your new ebranch as easy as possible – all you have to do is upload your goods and/or services onto your new ebranch site! Many of them provide you with Bulk-Listing Software to ease your time and effort!

Often, they’ll let you upload your existing html pages onto your new ebranch site.

Because they Need You! Often they will give you a Free Trial Period, which allows you to Test their Site as to whether :-

  • Your Products/Services Will Sell on Their Sites!
  • Your Extra Sales Increase Your Bottom Line (Net Profit) enough!

Yes They Will Charge You eventually – but you must make your own calculations in the light of whether that ebranch is worth your while to keep going!

Advantages of Opening a New eStore or eBranch?
With an Existing Mall or Auction Site :-
  • You Take Advantage of the Existing Traffic to the Host Site!
  • It’s Quick and Easy to Setup And Operate!
  • Some Allow You to Link to Your Main Site!
  • Increased Sales from Your New eBranch!
  • Increased Traffic to Your Main Site!
  • Improved Ability to Test-Market New Products or Services!
  • Increased Public Awareness of Your Existence!
  • Increased Customer Satisfaction!
  • Increased Bottom Line (Your Net Profit)!

Where To Place Your new eStore/eBranch?
Amongst many Mall & Auction Sites, we, at bestauction.co.uk’s Secure Site, are giving estore/ebranch Members Free Registration, Free Setup, Free Listings plus £100 Credit per month - which may be used by you to enhance your Listings, e.g. Featured, Bold and/or @highlighted Listings – for your first three (3) months trading with us. Don’t forget to keep your eye on when each of your new estores or ebranches Trial Offers End and to keep records of traffic and sales on each ebranch! In addition, we give ALL Members the chance to share in our Net Profits.

>
>Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not
>expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and

>guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth

>
>
>

>Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, put on a
>team shirt. His Father watched with a small tear in his eye and warmth in
>his heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted. In the
>bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still
>behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and
>played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was
>obviously ecstatic just to be in the g ame and on the field, grinning from
>ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands. In the bottom of the
>ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases
>loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be
>next at bat.
>
>
>
>
>
>
>At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win
