|AuctionBytes Publishes 100th Issue of Premier Online-Auction Newsletter
August 2003, Natick, Mass. AuctionBytes is celebrating the publication
of the 100th issue of AuctionBytes-Update, an email newsletter for online auction buyers
David and Ina Steiner, founders of AuctionBytes.com, began selling on
eBay 4 years ago and saw the need for a publication geared to the unique needs of
entrepreneurial sellers like themselves. There are many business issues involved in
setting up an online auction business, even for part-time sellers: customer service;
packaging, shipping and fulfillment; inventory acquisition; accounting and more.
The first issue of AuctionBytes-Update was published on November 6,
1999. The newsletter has grown to 15,000 loyal subscribers, and the AuctionBytes Web site
receives 150,000 unique visitors each month. The 100th issue of AuctionBytes-Update
continues the tradition of helping online sellers be more efficient, with articles on
taking better digital images of auction items; a commentary on a new eBay policy affecting
long-time users; an article on pricing strategies; and more.
AuctionBytes also publishes Newsflash, a daily newsletter covering
breaking news in the online auction industry. Articles inform readers of special auction
promotions and policy changes, identify trends and expose fraud. The AuctionBytes Annual
Collectibles Price Index has been cited in the Wall Street Journal, the New York
Times, Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles, and other leading publications.
AuctionBytes has struck a nerve with readers and provides a place for
open discussion about industry issues. Discussion forums and "Letters from
Readers" section allows people to say what's on their minds.
On August 10, the 100th issue of AuctionBytes-Update newsletter was
mailed to subscribers. Readers can subscribe to this free email newsletter at
