Where are the Ornaments? - Daryle Lambert's Antique and Collectibles Blog – The tree will soon be decorated.

The Ornaments are on and the presents are under the tree - Thanks to

Yesterday’s blog introduced the new site by changing it from to I said that the new tree (site) had been completed. But what does that mean to me, you must be asking. The biggest change that can be noticed is that the new site is much easier to navigate. The marketplace and all of its contents can be seen in just a matter of minutes and pieces listed there can be purchased immediately. Second, the blog now has its own page and the archives can be searched very quickly. On the home page you will notice that items in the marketplace are displayed and rotate when you click to a new page.

But what you don't see is perhaps the greatest part of the change. Every element of the site can now be controlled in house, with no waiting for outside people to complete changes for us whenever they get around to it. With our CMS, or computer management system, Ondre and Bob are in total control of our site and whatever needs to be done to improve the quality of the site can now be completed in an orderly fashion. But where are the ornaments?

This is where I really get excited because I have promised my members of the Daryle Lambert's Antique and Collectibles Club that there were wonderful things in our future. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have up until now been unable to produce them, but no longer. I will list what is coming below and soon I hope they will be additional ornaments on our tree.

I. Each member will have the opportunity to sit up their own store or you could call it their booth on the Club's website and list their items, just as they would on eBay for a fixed auction. I have shared this idea with many of our members and they can't wait to get their stores started. The cost will be as little as $1 per item for 30 days, with no final selling fee.

II. The name of the wish list might be changed but the principle will be the same. This is where you will advertise for the items that you wish to purchase. These lists will be prominently displayed on a separate page and accessible from the home page.

III. Members will be able to earn money by listing the Club’s affiliate program on their own site. In the future this could be a great source of income for our members as people take advantage of the program and as we increase the number of products that we are selling.

This is a short list of what is coming. As a member of the Club, these benefits will put money in your pocket. Bob is going to help us start a SEO (search engine optimization program) that will greatly enhance our hits to the site and provide more buyers for the items that we wish to sell.

One quick note: Bob is working on the members only sign in and it should be available soon. Ondre will be working inside the members only section so that you can access all the features that we had listed there on the old site.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me by email or phone 847-784-8544. I have to admit that over the last few days I haven't slept much because of my excitement over what Ondre and Bob are bringing to our club.
