If you’ve spent more than a week online you’ll know that most websites ask you to log in in order to obtain the most functionality out them. It’s a necessary chore when shopping online and it’s mandatory for a lot of other sites, particularly if you manage any of your own. Years of working online have taught me the vital importance of password management and this why I wouldn’t be without Roboform Password Manager.
Do you have locks on the doors of your house? Your windows? Your car? It’s pretty obvious isn’t it, yet despite this people still leave themselves wide open to theft, vandalism, and the distress and upset that can be caused if someone gains access to your online profiles with malicious intent.
I’m going to assume you’ve got enough gumption to realise:
Password managers are software products which store your usernames and passwords for all the sites you visit and use. However, the good ones do much more than than act as an online copy of your scribbled post-it notes. The data needs to be stored in such a way that it cannot easily be seen. It needs to be kept up to date across all your devices.

Imagine you log in to several sites every day. You’ve followed the best practice of creating unique, obscure passwords for each site and although you’ve stored them securely you have to keep looking them up and typing them out manually.
Now multiply that time consuming chore by the number of times you have to do it each week, month, or year. and then consider how time you would save if only the process was semi automated in the way that Roboform can do it.
I’ve been using Roboform for about six years. It’s probably one of most useful software tools I’ve ever bought.

Here are a few tips on how to make money selling on Amazon and what tools to use to make the process simpler to learn and more efficient in practice.
Most people assume that nearly all the products sold on it are sourced, stored, and desptached by Amazon, but the fact is that only about 60% of the products you see listed are sold in this way. The rest is made up by independent retailers who sell on Amazon in all the various countries in which it operates.
Let’s start with some basic terminology:
This graphic provided by the chaps at Junglescout.com explains the process in easy to follow steps. As you can see, the trick is to find the right product to sell. That’s where most of the work occurs; research, but the research tool Jungle Scout makes that task a lot easier.
Read through the graphic then check the notes I’ve added underneath. I’ve tried this, and it does work!
My tips for selling on Amazon refer back to the infographic above.
There’s plenty of help available for those who want to try this business model. I recommend you start with a training course that explains the process in much more detail. The knowledge given in this course will give you the confidence to try the techniques it describes.
