Photoshop ecover scripts – your ultimate guide

Photoshop Ecover Scripts – Your Ultimate Guide

If you are an internet marketer, then you know all too well that the competition in the online market is very intense and if one is to be successful, your products must stand out from the rest. Customers would only settle for the best and in order for you to increase your sales, you need to be the best! Being the best can begin from first impressions; you can obtain a good first impression if you can make your prospect interested in your product the first time he or she sees it. You can achieve this if you attach with your product an outstanding ecover. To do one, you must master the use of Photoshop ecover scripts. Sure, you can hire a professional graphic designer and outsource your work to them, but they don’t come cheap. Furthermore, would you be prepared to pay them the high amount they charge per hour of work every time you need a ecover? I don’t think so.

What are Photoshop ecover scripts in the first place? These are action scripts which are primarily the multiple tasks or actions needed to create ecover design and graphics in Photoshop. These actions are then packaged together to form an automated script that you can use again when you need to create something similar so you need not repeat the actions one by one. All you need to do left is design your basic layout and after that, the automated script will complete for you what is needed to be completed.
Obviously, these action scripts are not limited to creating just ecovers alone. There are also scripts which you can use for almost anything you imagine creating in Photoshop such as fancy borders and frames, and allow you to do other tasks such as color enhancement and correction, application of effects, and addition of text and layers. However, for internet marketers, the most important scripts are Photoshop ecover scripts. These make designing easy and fun, regardless of your design skill level.
It is essential for you to have a unique ecover for your products. If you use the ecover provided when you download your PLR products, there is almost certainly, hundreds of other internet marketers using the same ecovers and if that happens, you go in express competition with them.
Marketing experts have conducted studies and found out that indeed, product packaging can make or break a product. This is exactly why they are prepared to shell out big money to professional graphic designers to provide them the most appealing and attractive ecovers for their products. The same thing goes for any other products, such as CDs and DVDs, wherein covers would play a huge part in promoting the product.
An ideal package of Photoshop ecover scripts would cost somewhere between 95 to 150 dollars, depending on the number of actions and the quality of the program. The most basic Photoshop ecover scripts every online seller need are eboxes action scripts, ebook cover action scripts, report cover action scripts, and CD cover action scripts. Many websites would offer these scripts to you for free but you will find as you go along that you do not have enough choices to create more unique and better-looking ecover designs. The package you are looking for should be reasonably priced and gives you at the same time, ease of use, sufficient choices, and flexibility. Do not forget though, you need to have at least Adobe Photoshop CS3 to use these ecover scripts. If you cannot afford it, do not worry. These packages offer one-month trial periods which you can still maximize.

Merchant accounts and shopping carts for your wholesale store: updated version

Merchant Accounts and Shopping Carts For Your Wholesale Store: Updated Version!

Do you know what are the best shopping carts for your own beneficial use when it comes to your company e-commerce store as of now? Perhaps you don’t even know what a shopping carts are, its importance or how it can benefit you as a seller at your own e-store or as marketer on eBay. Well, you don’t have to buy anything in order to know few of the best payment processors. You can get the details without paying in this very moment.

A shopping cart being the software that processes your products for final step in a transaction, the customers payment being the last step. Now a merchant account having the additions that not only in the majority of the cases has a shopping cart software integrated, it can process payments from at least two of the most popular credit cards, Visa or Mastercard.

The bottom line being for you, is that it can break your products sale once the customers is ready to finalize payment. So what shopping cart and merchant account gateway you end up using is as we in Puerto Rico say in our own Spanish term say it’s – importante – important!

So the details you want to read. Starting with Google Checkout! Do you recognize that particular brand name? Not the checkout word. The actual part of the phrase that says “Google” first! I know you obviously do and its brand is worth billions. Thanks to the initiative of two of the world’s elite visionaries that had the desire to provide a service in their country when the time was just right.

If you’ve been to quite enough seminars you’ve heard the coined phrased; “Google Me Mate” or, something between the lines. The facts are, anything associated with the brand of Google – at least when it comes to being massively published and known – turns to gold. Their stocks as doing a double check in Morning Star as of today is worth at least twenty times more per stock, than twenty fortune 500 “billion dollar” companies combined, in today’s market.

So as you could imagine, anyone with a nice taste for Pavarotti’s lines (even if he didn’t sang the song for the first time) can happily sing “La Donna e Mobile” with ease when having security as their main process payment objectives. So, yes, Google Checkout is still a preferred checkout system no matter what checkout newly appears online. There are numerous more. But, one more that I definitely want to share with you do to the limitation in length with some of my content publishers.

Thanks a trusted referenced idea of another successful New Yorker. It should definitely be a unanimous decision to have your payments through – what seems to be – according to worldwide feedback and reputation power, an excellent merchant processing company, authorize. I’ve not used the merchant yet, but I saw the process as a customer and I’ll be using it myself after talking with the company to have a few questions sorted out.

If you’ve a wholesale video games store or an electronic merchandise store, just Google the word “authorize”. Google is still way more captivating when it comes to brand association when it comes to your shopping cart logo confirmation. But such dot net version of this last merchant I am adding here has substantial benefits that Google Checkout just doesn’t have integrated yet.

Apart from the numerous merchant versions you’ve seen stripped away across search engines while doing diligence for your store, “authorize” has up-sale capabilities that virtually aren’t popular or seen for Google Checkout. These are the facts!

However, you also need to remind yourself that when you’re starting an internet business and launching fast is a priority to you, the “keep it simple, stupid” famous phrase applies to anyone that wants simplicity. But if you want to do it correctly, right from the beginning, and you happen to have multiple items up for sale – get a programmer to do the dirty work for you in an adequate merchant account.

I mean, if you’re not an Einstein C++ or Linux, PHP look-alike geek or the likes from college A list, consider hiring someone who loves and has studied what he does best -it’s just marketing 101. So before you leave, get this two companies in your mind for long enough as they are two of the best ones you should also have in mind. I think my publishing space is limited? Have fun!

Positioning in small business marketing

Positioning in Small Business Marketing

Positioning is another one of those marketing jargon words that everybody throws around and is important to understand. It’s also important to understand how positioning specifically applies to your small business marketing.

Basically a marketing position describes your unique place in the market. The key word here is unique. What makes you different from your competitors? What features and benefits do you offer your target market that the other players don’t?

Here are a few things that may go into your positioning:

-Price Point – This doesn’t necessarily mean you have the lowest price. You may be the most expensive in town, and that’s OK if you convince your customers you’re worth it.

-Service – Almost every business claims they have great service. If you can provide exceptional service compared to your competitors, your customers will remember you. I’ll never forget calling a surly plumber to try to get him to my house for an emergency on a weekend. He acted like he didn’t want my business and then told me it was going to be $200 for him just to show up, no thanks. I called roto-router who gave me amazing service, a guarantee, and the whole bill was less than $200. I now use them for all my plumbing.

-Features and Benefits – Positioning is not just about what makes you different, it’s also about what you emphasize. Folgers announces to the world that it’s “mountain grown coffee” ( a feature). Guess what? All coffee is mountain grown. Folgers just claimed this feature first. What’s something that none of your competitors are talking about?

-Credibility – Legal Seafood’s clam chowder is served at every presidential inauguration. Many products get celebrity endorsements. Many companies tout how long they’ve been in business. All of these things build trust in the mind of the consumer. What trust-building factors do you have that the competition does not?

-Negative Features – Is there something you don’t have that annoys customers of your competitors? I’m not saying use negative advertising, but just mention the feature and tie it to a benefit. I’m annoyed when I have to pay for parking to go shopping at Mall. Instead of touting free parking, a mall that wants to speak to me might declare, “You’ll never have to pay for parking”. This drives home the pain of shopping with a competitor without going negative.

-Anything Else – Literally anything that differentiates you from your competitors can be part of your positioning strategy – your location, your hours of operation, the way your office smells. Small business owners need to think creatively here.

In a great article by John Jantsch he states that a positioning strategy must answer the question, “why should I buy from you?” This is brilliant in its simplicity; it cuts through all the strategic junk that complicates marketing. If you can’t answer this question, your customer is not going to do the work to figure out an answer on his own.
