eBay Sellers Should Make Their Views Known, Says Parcel2Go

Online auction and retail website eBay has recently launched a consultation with its sellers, asking them for their thoughts on how the company should provide customer service in the future, in a bid to improve people’s experience. According to online parcel delivery service Parcel2Go, this is an ideal opportunity for sellers to really get their points across and make their thoughts known.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “This is one opportunity that should not be missed. Sellers have everything to gain by making their feelings known to eBay and providing constructive feedback that can be used to improve the website and customer service processes.”

The survey has thrown up some potential new services that eBay may be looking to introduce, such as making customer support available though social media channels. The survey also asks sellers how important 24/7 customer support is to them, what their thoughts are on improved email support and how they feel about the possibility of mobile phone support.

Richard added: “eBay recently unveiled its new virtual shopping basket and a Christmas shopping wish list feature is set to be available at the start of next month. These are all things that can help sellers to maximise revenue and hopefully this new survey will help to streamline the selling process and allow eBay sellers to go on and provide a better experience for their customers.”

The team at Parcel2Go is continually looking for new ways to make buying and selling on eBay quicker and easier. Earlier this year the company launched its quick quote shipping tool which sellers can embed in their item pages to allow buyers to access speedy shipping quotes. By providing quick quotes on domestic and international shipping services, users are provided with the widest possible choice of services and are far likelier to receive a good service.

Parcel2Go Warns Online Christmas Shoppers Not To Cut Corners When It Comes To Deliveries

With a recent survey from HSBC revealing that more than one in ten people plan on making use of online shopping outlets this Christmas, Parcel2Go has urged shoppers to use a trusted courier for deliveries.

The survey also found that despite the state of the economy, people intend on spending just as much on Christmas this year as they have in the past, with an average spend of £560 per person.

Richard Mercer, marketing director of Parcel2Go, said: “In the current financial climate Parcel2Go understands that people want to be able to enjoy Christmas as much as possible, and that means they may end up feeling forced to cut corners elsewhere in order to buy all of the presents, food and other things they need to make the season special.

“As HSBC’s survey shows, many people will be turning towards the internet when buying Christmas presents this year, but when it comes to getting purchases delivered we just want shoppers to be absolutely certain that they are using a reliable delivery method so that their presents arrive on time and in good condition, which all of the couriers that we work with can provide.”

He continued: “We’ve seen it before – shoppers buy Christmas presents from foreign sellers over eBay and other online auction websites and choose a cheaper delivery method, thinking that they’re saving money. They end up having to wait weeks for their items though, whereas if they had chosen a courier, their purchases could have been with them in a matter of days.”

Many different courier services work in conjunction with Bolton-based Parcel2Go, and shoppers buying online can pick between them to get the best value for money on a high-quality delivery service that will save them having to put up with any heartache over the Christmas period.

UK Business Turning To Freelancers To Survive Challenging Economic Times

In what’s undoubtedly a tough economic climate for many UK businesses, an increasing number are turning to the skills of freelancers in an attempt to stay afloat during these challenging times. With the services of freelancers helping businesses to not only continue to get their jobs done, but to reduce their fixed overheads at the same time, the workloads of many freelancers continue to increase, as more companies start to realise exactly how outsourcing can help their company.

As a result of the freelance market being stronger than ever before, both in terms of supply and demand, freelancers are increasingly giving businesses other options, such as a being flexible alternatives to the permanent staff they’ve always had. With freelancer web designers and freelance translators, for example, completing work within the desired time, and in many cases ahead of schedule, the appeal of freelancers is clear, especially when their prices are often a lot cheaper than those quoted by high street companies. With businesses being able to save money whilst also getting the job done and without having to sacrifice the quality of it, outsourcing is a win-win situation for all involved.

A recent survey has shown that 66% of companies who took part in it said they were more likely to start outsourcing their work during difficult economic times. This is, of course, great news for freelancers, as being in this role can also bring its fair share of difficulties too, such as work not being guaranteed. With freelancers often being essential to start up businesses who need access to affordable, flexible specialists, the outsourcing market is growing constantly.

Loren Holland, Managing Director of OutsourceMyProject, an up-and-coming online freelance outsourcing company said: “With significant savings to be made through outsourcing work to freelancers, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of UK businesses are choosing to have their workloads completed in this way. Savings are commonly made by outsourcing work to low cost economies that have highly skilled workers, such as India, as an impressive amount of money can be saved yet the job is carried out just as well.”

Loren Holland went on to say: “OutsourceMyProject is a UK based platform, which has been created in order to open up the global market place for professional services, across a wide range of sectors. Outsource My Project enables small and medium sized businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals to successfully outsource business within the UK and abroad, whilst also helping self employed individuals to secure work. With the transparent bidding process of many outsourcing sites meaning that businesses are free to pick and choose the type of freelancer they want for the job, the concept is appealing to say the least.

Available Worldwide Now: Proven Success Method How to Control Your Brain to Control Your Life

Control Your Brain Control Your Life is an internet based, interactive personal development program. It differs from similar programs that it is not a self-help program, but combines downloadable modules with personal consultations by telephone and email. The method is effective, expeditious and leads to success.

Udo Stadtsbuchler, the creator of Control Your Brain, Control Your Life, is a very experienced and highly successful psychotherapist. He developed Applied Body and Mind Dynamics (ABMD), a method that combines his own findings and insights with conventional psychotherapy as well as with Positive Psychology, Cognitive Linguinistics, Neurolinguinistic Programming, Psychoneuroimmunology, and Energy Therapy. Now semi-retired and living on Spain’s Costa del Sol, he is the author of ‘Happiness Discovered’ and he has written numerous workshop manuals for personal development.

The program consists of a core module and various additional modules. Subscribers to the core module have the opportunity to have a module tailor-made for their individual requirements. There will be never more than 20 participants at any one time. This low number enables Udo to keep in personal touch by telephone and email with each one of his clients to really personalize the program. This is probably the most important and success oriented aspect of Control Your Brain, Control Your Life, because it elevates it from self-help to a person-to-person coaching program. It not only tells participants what to do, but demonstrates how to do it. The example that Udo gives: “there are so many self-help books that tell people that it is necessary to think outside the box. But how do you do it, if you have been programmed throughout your life to think inside the box?” In his personal consultations Udo clearly demonstrates how to overcome this and all other hurdles.

OutsourceMyProject – An Essential Money-Saving Tool For Every Kind Of Business

With many businesses trying to carry out their everyday work with a limited budget, it’s no surprise that each day brings the unfortunate closure of another company, whether it be a struggling design company with an unmanageable workload, or a well-known company failing to make ends meet.

In today’s society, everything costs money, and these costs seem to always be on the increase, which makes every new day a struggle for many businesses. However, a company called OutsourceMyProject (OMP) looks set to turn everything around, with an aim of being an essential source of skilled labour and a money-saving tool for every kind of business, no matter how big or small.

Many companies would jump at the chance of being able to outsource some of their business functions to specialist service providers for a small fee, and that’s exactly what OMP allows businesses to do. As a result, over the past year a steady flow of companies have taken the time to learn about outsourcing, whilst also taking advantage of the benefits they themselves have been able to reap from the concept.

It’s no wonder that outsourcing marketplaces, such as OutsourceMyProject (OMP), have therefore helped to keep many companies afloat when they would have otherwise crumbled. OMP prides itself on helping businesses find specialists with the skills they require at an affordable rate, in what is undoubtedly a financially straining economy.

Cedar Falls Care Home, based in Walsall, is just one company that’s saved a significant amount of money by outsourcing their work through OMP, and has gone from strength to strength since first signing up to the website. Managing Director of Cedar Falls said: “We read about OutsourceMyProject in the news and thought it was a great way to find experts who could provide the services we needed at affordable rates. We loved the idea of posting one project and then sitting back and receiving multiple proposals in a competitive environment.

“We’ve used OutsourceMyProject to find several experts to help with projects; the main one being a web developer and SEO expert, who helped to build and promote our company website. We posted our project on OutsourceMyProject and within hours we received several great offers from experts in the UK, as well as other low cost economies, such as India. We went on to find a freelancer based in Wales, who built our website for 50% of our original budget!

“We’ve used OMP for the past 12 months now and have found freelance experts ranging from web developers, to PR consultants, and freelance graphic designers, who have all provided their services at a fraction of the price we were previously quoted from high street companies.”

During their time with OutsourceMyProject so far, Cedar Falls has not only found a website designer for just £350, compared to the high street quote of £1000, but they’ve also enlisted the help of a freelance logo designer, who turned out to be 83% cheaper than the quotes received from the high street. And, it’s not just a database of designers that OMP offers, as many content writers, admin support freelancers, and those with a solid understanding of search engine optimisation (SEO) are registered on the site too, saving Cedar Falls 67%, 60%, and 50% respectively.

By realising the potential of OMP, Cedar Falls successfully found freelancers to fulfill their business needs; all for a total cost that would only have paid for a website design on the high street. It’s no surprise that through using OMP, Cedar Falls have saved a total of 64% to date.

The case study of Cedar Falls illustrates how OMP can not only help businesses directly, but it’s also an aid in helping entrepreneurs to launch their business ideas at a significant saving. OMP makes it both easier and cheaper for business ventures to be launched, whilst also providing companies with what is sure to become a essential aid.

Through OMP, businesses can not only find the most suitable professionals to complete their work, but they can also make all-important savings along the way. In turn, this has allowed businesses to consequently become leaner, whilst also making it feasible for them to reduce their overheads, through the use of both freelance and online workers. This is, of course, perfect not only in a difficult economic climate, but perfect for the digital world as a whole, paving the way of the future.
