Cha Cha.. What the heck is that ?

Well Cha Cha quite simply is a new search engine that is manned by human beings. Huh? With the Cha Cha system you have the choice of having a live guide help you with your search online or doing one search engine assisted. At first, I was a bit leary as the program was fairly new and it had a lot of bugs but over the last fews weeks the service has become gradually more sturdy and it is honestly quite useful. Just imagine, instead of doing a search and getting results based on the popularity of a site in SEO terms. (SEO is web language for supped up pages that end up with the highest page ranks on search engines, namely Google because the creator of the page manipulates them in a fashion that is virtual eye candy for web crawlers. Yeah so a lot of the times you search you don't find what you really want. Isn't it always better when a friend or colleague puts you up on a cool site that they have personally visited anyway? In the long run it works out much better to have some actual human input for certain things online.

Cha Cha also is a way for people that are looking for work that can be done at home. Online there are countless ads about telecommuting jobs and data entry positions that never pan out because they are scams. Cha Cha just happens to be a legitimate way to make a bit of income doing something you'd normally be doing for free to begin with. With reviews in Wired, CNET, ABC News and a number of reputable sources, Cha Cha looks to be a good deal.

Try it out and do a search for yourself or if you feel so inclined, become a guide and aide net surfers from all over the world with their searches based on your knowledge of all things you deem worthy of being known.

On :New Drop-Ship Web Store Opportunity

I'm usually a skeptic about turnkey drop ship Web store opportunities. The ones I've seen in the past have either charged a high monthly maintenance fee, or sold shoddy merchandise. But I ran across one last week at the virtual eComXpo that may be different - First, there is no set-up fee or monthly fee if you join before April 30, 2006. (There will be monthly fees for those who join later.) Next, the merchandise appears to be of good quality. I have not purchased any myself, but name brands like Pioneer, Play Station, Dolce & Gabbana and others are listed.

Here's how is works: you sign up and create a store using Shopster, and select items from the Shopster "virtual warehouse." For most products, you can choose the selling price. Shopster handles product fulfillment, inventory, customer service, E-commerce store set-up and merchant account. For this, Shopster keeps 3.5% of your profit (about what you'd pay in credit card fees anyway).

Do I guarantee you'll make money with this? Of course not. But with the free introductory offer, there is little or nothing to lose.

Dumb T-Shirts: There's money in'em.

T-Shirts quite simply will never go out of style. All over the net there are countless websites popping up taking advantage of this net niche market that has expanded from generic smiley faces and "I'm With Stupid" shirts to even more sophisticated make your own spam mail shirts. The fact is, almost anywhere you go on the planet, there's a person wearing a t-shirt with either a witless quote or an interesting graphic.

So you wanna make shirts huh, but you don't have the resources? Or you just can't figure out what would sell if you did have them. Honestly, t-shirt production is not that expensive and the profit return on your investment can be sweet provided you manage to sell your product. You have 2 main ways to get images on shirts. You can go the silkscreen route or the heat transfer route. Silk screen is real simple and less costly then heat transfer depending on the amount of colors involved in your project. The more colors the more it will cost you. If you find a good company like N Designs in the heart of Tennessee you'll do fairly well on production cost and they even do small orders, although they mostly service large companies and record labels with printed garments.

But what if you don't want silkscreened shirts? What if you're more interested in full color images like those portraits of Tupace & Biggie that never seem to run outtah steam. Now you're talking heat transfer and you're also talking more money. There's one way I've personally used to get my full color images on shirts and thousands of independent t-shirt creators have followed this trend. has made it possible for folks to create not only t-shirts but various items to customize and even sell online in their very own net store. Only drawback is the amount of profit you end up with after your merchandise is sold. The base prices are rather high and you'd have to raise your sell price a bit much to get a few dollars off of your items. If you think in volume though, selling more at lower prices you'll make some money. Considering the fact that Cafe Press produces the product for you, completes the transaction and delivers it to your customer while you sit back and do nothing but promote your store, kinda makes what they're asking for as a base for each item not so terrible. Nevermind, the basic account with Cafe Press is free. (With a free account you can only create one of each customizable item.)

Design and Sell Merchandise Online for Free

Okay now you have some what of an idea of where you can get shirts produced. (Get to searching the net for more info on companies that produce garments. Pay attention to the types of shirts they use to print on. You want to sell a quality product.) Now what do you put on them ? Depends on what you want to represent. Or if you're trynah toss a gimmick out there to make a quick buck. Either way you'll need to do what anyone that's trying to sell anything does. Research your market. Find out what's popular and what sells. Just think about what you would want a shirt to say. What haven't you seen on a shirt that you know people would be amazed to see. Come up a with a concept or 2 and run with'em. You won't know if it will be a big sell unless you actually try.

Build a better blog-trap the world will click a path to your door? Part 1

In the last year or so I’ve become considerably involved with blogging. I’ve realized the potential for many things through this form of communication. If promoted properly, you can reach a massive amount of folks from all over the globe, many of which you’d otherwise never ever possibly meet. You’d be surprise how many people actually feel the same way you do about things or have similar interest in topics you surely didn’t expect anyone else to be interested in. Regardless of what you’re into, the networking capabilities online and through the use of blogs are amazing.

So what do you blog about? Well, just like they always say when one wants to be a writer. Write what you know. How simple is that? Sometimes it’s not so simple, but anything can be done. I suggest you not make it work for yourself. As long as you enjoy what you do, the process becomes pretty seamless as far as I’ve experienced it. Write the way you speak and be honest. Contrived prose can be easily recognized by your reader and not appreciated. You want to get your message across most importantly. Ernest Hemmingway is looked upon as one of the greatest American authors that ever touched a typewriter key. He wrote short precise sentences and every one wasn’t filled with words you’d be embarrassed not to know the definition of. Besides, it’s not always the words that you use, but more so the manner in which you use the words you choose to use. All in all, you want to get your point across with the least amount of difficulty. You want to inform your audience. The more you write, the more confident you will become with your writing. If you’re not too sure about going live with some of your pieces have a friend that will give you a serious critique check it out. If you really want to get an unbiased opinion, you may want to have them read what you wrote with the idea that it is something that you stumbled upon while surfing and you’d like to share it with them and discuss. This method is a great way to get honest feedback.

An Intro...

I created this blog to list various ways individuals can make a few extra coins that they otherwise would never see by quite simply taking advantage of the many valuable resources that are online.

Seems like people give the internet a seriously bad wrap. Too much pornographic material. Pop-ups. Spam. Viruses that take over your comp. But the truth is, like with everything else in life it's more so about what you actually do and how you find the good and beneficial things out there that exist. So straight off I'd like to say for anyone reading this who's nature is one of complaining and or finding the wrongs in everything with no real thought of personal advancement, go ahead and close this window. This is not for you. As for the rest of you guys that want to be enlightened on ways you can make a few dollars online with a little work and research come right on in and get equipped with some new knowledge on what you can do. I must say that we'll all be learning together. No, I'm not some millionaire, or some marketing genius that's retired and sits online making money off of desperate folks that want to be rich. I'm just like you the reader that quite possibly lives in a city where the cost of living is unbearable and making ends meet seems utterly impossible. Hey you know what, perhaps not. Maybe you're just fine but want to be a little bit more better off and refuse to settle with your financial situation.
