Hello My Fellow Auctiva Users,
I'm one of the owners of Auction Sellers Motivators (The ASM), a message board that focuses on ecommerce sales and how to further your sales. A lively group thats full of information.
Up until yesterday the group was private.
We are now in the process of opening up the message boards to the general public and allowing new members.
One of the factors that helped us to make this decision was that the site OTWA announced it's soon to be closing. Those members would be looking for a new home.
Once we decided to open the boards, I of course wanted to invite my Fellow Auctiva Users.
The ASM Forum is dedicated to improving peoples business on eBay, Other Auction Venues and on their individual Web Sites.
We had chosen to keep the ASM private to keep out spammers, those folks who only participate in forums for social or political aspects, and those negative folks who tend to creep into many public forums. Those still won't be allowed and will be banned ASAP. (some personal IP addresses of trouble-makers are already banned)
Please consider joining our group. Remember we're moving from private to public and we're in the process of moving threads here and there.
The basic requirements are that a member be actively involved in ecommerce either on or off of eBay, that they post once a month, post a hello in Welcome thread and share knowledge when they can.
We also have a Classified Ad Site that you are welcome to post items for sale and a Public Blog Site where you can have your own personal blog if so desired, all dedicated to improving members business.
We are also in the early stages of publishing a Coupon eBook to generate additional revenues for our members.
Some of the Forum Categories are:

Many of the Members originally met at SpareDollar, but are now scattered to the four winds. There are also a lot of members that were never on SpareDollar. The one thing we all have in common is that we are all
interested in growing our business and helping out each other in the process.
Oh, and we do have a little fun in the process. We have a Coffee Break Forum for non-business topics including sub forums for Movies and TV
shows and a Water Cooler Forum for jokes and email forwards.
