Where Did All of My Pictures Go?

Well it is January 2014 and I am starting to add my creations on Bonanza. Coming here today & missing my pictures is a bit disappointing, but maybe it's just a temporary site wide glitch.
A foray into steampunk but a softer side. Let me know what you think!

Been Working More Than Tending to Selling

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! Even though I don't get here as often as I'd like, I just want to express that, now and after several years, Bonanza is still my first choice of selling venues and it has never let me down. The name has changed, team members have been added, and the site undergoes optimal tweaks on a regular basis to the benefit of BOTH buyers and sellers. Knock on wood... may it remain so! Finally I am starting to add some product for the upcoming Christmas holidays
and next year I plan to put up for sale many of my own creations... no not a clothing line, but a bit of fine jewelry, steam-punk, and contemporary with a twist like my 70s Napoleon Empereur Faux Coin Belt Conversion Gold Tone Necklace Earrings Set or
Watch for additions via Check out my booth, bobbi85710 beginning late January. Bobbi

Not Feeling the Rushes

Just a thimble full of thought...

I have watched the 'generated' sales from Rushes and I don't feel them. I will say that I believe that one buyer might have panicked and picked up quite a bit of jewelry the day before one Jewelry Rush was scheduled to occur.

Maybe that's where the Rush comes into play... they rush to buy it before it sells during a time that the buyer won't be online to get a deal. If so... than the Bonanza team is one step ahead (as always)on the competition and that's a great thing.

Just thinking inside the box, while Bonanza thinks outside of it for us.

Reading AuctionBytes: Bonanzle Reports Growing Base as It Approaches 2-Year Milestone

Online marketplace Bonanzle has continued to build its base of buyers and sellers, with membership growing 18% in just the past 6 weeks, standing now at 236,000 registered users. Popular with small online and eBay sellers, the site will turn two in June. Bonanzle receives 1.5 million unique visitors a month and has close to 20,000 active sellers responsible for a total of just under 3 million listings.

Bonanzle employs four people, including founder Bill Harding. That is, if you don't include the users. Spokesperson Mark Dorsey said the company receives tremendous support from the community, from reporting fake items to spreading the word about Bonanzle. Mr. Dorsey said that, based on the site's growth, the company would definitely be adding designers and programmers in the future.

In October, Bonanzle launched an API in beta that allows third-party developers to provide services and tools for buyers and sellers; it remains in development. The biggest priority for Bonanzle, according to Mr. Dorsey, is making sure buyers have a good experience and come back again to the site. Helping with that is a new order resolution center that allows buyers to open up cases with sellers with Bonanzle as facilitator.

Bonanzle calls itself, "Your destination for everything but the ordinary," and its goal is "to be the simplest marketplace online, with an upbeat community that makes buying and selling fun again." So not surprisingly, "electronics" is absent from the top categories, which include Clothing, Jewelry, Home & Garden, Collectibles, Health & Beauty, Crafts, Books and Toys & Hobbies. You'll find cool vintage electronics, Mr. Dorsey said, but you won't find hundreds of identical iPhone covers, in part because the site limits sellers to 10,000 listings.

Aside from a seller base that actively promotes the site, the company purchases Google ads on 10,000 keywords and is about to launch a display ad campaign on various content sites ("yet to be named," Mr. Dorsey said.)

Bonanzle has no plans to slowdown - the company said it is targeting traffic of 5 million unique visitors by the later part of next year."
