can we find another site to sell on and just put the word out which I think would drive a big nail in ebays coffin.
What exactly are you proposing?
I don't even use eBay what I do is send out a dead-pan listing often with nothing more than bare essentials, through the eBay system and the craiglist system.
Then I just suck it up, and cascade giant waves of traffic to my store where they filter right on through to my products and those sites. Complete the sales and move on, same with Amazon.
What it would take with the eBay train to stop it, is to basically sink all its traffic. Most of its traffic has been sinking for a while. In an unusual about face situation, traffic that myself and a few others have been creating is what is keeping eBay even alive.
Whatever this symbiotic relationship is I guess the fact is, you got to give to get. I am also cascading traffic like a tornado through Bidville my first/second choice. Hoping that everyone signs up there, period.
I also invite everyone who hasn't to create a Link hidden: Login to view account, its totally 100% FREE and has huge amounts of traffic now and will soon be getting over 10,000 hits a month.
Basically, bidville is in my eye going to be the next giant thing as eBay loses influence. Then again eBay is on life support. All I have to do is cease any contact with them, and me and a few other business owners pull all our business out along with the free traffic we gave them which are thousands of people. That pulls the plug on the life support machine.
But its not time for anyone to make some sort of judgment like that and I think they're just fine. Don't go in there and use eBay by paying $49 front page listing, $28 a month or $300 a year for all of eBay's supplies and a store, and they are quite good.
One of these days though, as the traffic I and others generate is climbing like a tornado, we are just going to do what I refer to as the gigantic seismic shift. We are going to, or at least I plan on it, send over 20 to 40,000 visitors to Bidville and their auction/sales network. At that exact time it will also filter into eBay but they will want to go back to Bidville. And right into the company products. And at least I am going to say.........500 of those real people, are going to sign up. I already saw 4 or more people sign up from Europe who are loving bidville.

Then they are going to buy, and Bidville is going to be the next eBay. Bidville is destined to be the next eBay and I will support it!
