Blast from the Past!

One thing I love about the Internet, is the ability to find great articles or blog posts that were written months if not years ago and bring them back into the light.

One such post I recently came across was by Trevor Ginn of Auctioning4u, a UK based eBay consultant. Trevor makes some great points regarding the "Long Tail" phenomenon, so I thought I would share a link to his post.

When I was selling online, my business, Glacier Bay DVD, benefited greatly from the "Long Tail" phenomenon, as does many an eBay business today. Interestingly, it is this "Long Tail" that eBay is trying to stamp out of stores because it does not sell fast enough to profitable for them or more appropriately "profitable enough" for them.
