‘Power Selling Mom’ Host Danna Crawford: Humongous Fan of eBay (and Griff Too!)

“I will not promise to make you millions, but I will show you ways to get your bills paid!” So proclaims Danna Crawford, host of Power Selling Mom, which each week features interviews with successful eBay sellers and staffers. And Danna—as CEO of PowerSellingMom, Inc. and founder of VirtualOnlineLearning.com—does indeed provide regular money-making tools, tips and tactics that help listeners to her show (which recently celebrated its three-year anniversary on BlogTalkRadio) get the most out of the world’s largest online auction and shopping site. The Ocala, Fla., resident is so adept at her self-styled career, in fact, that she’s been able to work from home since 1997. That in turn has meant being available to her kids 24/7, while never missing any of their school or social events. So if any of Danna’s success sounds intriguing to you, don’t touch that mouse because our SoundBits subject of the week is coming up live in four… three… two…


Give us a 15-second pitch for your showwhy should listeners tune in?

eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace, but it has so much more to offer than just buying or selling. My show focuses on the eBay community, serving as a place where buyers and sellers unite-and lurkers begin to learn. I’ve also incorporated blogging into the show’s regular features, as well as effective use of all the social-networking sites. These are key factors in marketing on eBay, or any online business. And BlogTalkRadio has become an essential part of my Virtual Online Learning classroom!


Danna: Still making a bid for John Donahoe booking.

Tell us two things listeners would be surprised to learn about you.

I don’t color my hair. And I don’t get paid to talk about eBay! I’m just extremely thankful that eBay has given me an opportunity and provided a path for me to have my own business since 1997. A lot of people think I get paid to talk about eBay. But I promote the site because I truly love it, and I love to share my knowledge with others so they too might have similar experiences. My motto is: There is plenty of eBay for us all to be blessed and prosper!

StandUp For Kids, MissionFish and Holiday Recipes

We love when hosts use BlogTalkRadio to promote good causes. Especially at this holiday season, it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy to provide a platform for the dissemination of information. Today, like most, is such a day.

Rick Kocha, Founder and CEO of StandUp for Kids will join The Recipe Box today at 2:30pm ET to discuss his organization. StandUp for Kids has been recognized by both the Clinton and Bush standupforkidsAdministrations for their work as advocates for America’s homeless youth population. From their website:

The mission of STANDUP FOR KIDS is to help homeless and street kids.

We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives.

Our focus goes beyond street outreach and extends to deterrence and resource programs that we provide in schools and via the Internet. But all facets of our mission are guided by the mandate that our volunteers shall tell kids they care about them and then, at every point, prove it.

Visit www.StandUpForKids.org for more information.

As an added bonus, listening to The Recipe Box today could net you a FREE Download of a Christmas Cookbook with over 40 recipes! In addition to the hosts sharing favorite holiday recipes and memories, Danna Crawford, eBay PowerSeller, will be sharing information about the Children in Need Campaign on MissionFish.org, as well as charity auctions on eBay. Big show!

Happy New Year!

As we ring out 2006 and ring in 2007 I have been looking back upon the past few months at BlogTalkRadio. When I first came onto BlogTalkRadio I was in awe of the platform, and for good reason. Here was a website that allowed people to have a voice on the internet in real time. A website that takes all of the work and expense out of podcasting and also adding a live element to each and every show. Listeners interacting with hosts via callins, hosts interviewing guests and being able to post these shows to their websites or blog, and the average joe being able to come onto BlogTalkRadio and host a live show about something they have always wanted to talk about.

I have gotten to know quite a few hosts on BlogTalkRadio and I must say it has been a pleasure dealing with every single one of them. I have gone out onto the web and read countless blogs and looked at countless websites, and contacted many people who I feel BlogTalkRadio would be a good compliment to their website or blog, “You” as Time Magazine calls you, have seen the utility on BlogTalkRadio and come on and created a show that has flourished and become something quite special. That my friends at the end of the day is what keeps me going.

Here are a few examples of these:

Shawn Collins from The Affiliate Summit and Lisa Picarille from Revenue News Magazine have created The Affiliate Thing. Shawn and Lisa have had on guests such as Lily Shen from Ebay, and the Infamous Mr X. Jim Kukral from ReveNews who is a marketing marvel has created the show Free Marketing Idea’s, Jim is not only a wealth of internet marketing knowledge he a super nice guy, and it was a pleasure bringing him onto BlogTalkRadio. Scott Baradell from Idea Grove hosts Media Orchard Live. I will forever get a smile on my face every time I think back to the night Scott had Steve Rubel on, the banter that ensued that night was something to behold, and then of course his interview with Rachal Sklar from The Huffington Post.

While I am on these types of show’s I of course have to mention Wayne Hurlbert, Wayne has been with BlogTalkRadio since the beginning and Wayne has stuck with the tried and true methods of being a successful BlogTalkRadio host by following a simple format that we give you the hosts the tools to do, Wayne uses his BlogTalkRadio buttons on his blog, his embedded media player, and then of course he implements the one thing that I always push and that is consistency, Wayne never misses a week and always has a very informative show with some pretty awesome guests.

The political platform is really picking up speed as we zoom into 2007, Pamela from the popular blog Atlas Shrugs will always leave you wanting to hear more, as she is as opinionated as she is funny. Lets not leave out her blogging partner on The Infidel Blog Pastorious who hosts the show “The Infidel Show“, who is one of the few people I have heard that can keep up with Pamela’s endless energy on the air.

We are also very proud to be bringing on Taylor Marsh from TaylorMarsh.com who did her very first show before the holidays, Taylor Marsh is a radio talk show host, blog reporter, and author. Taylor has a long political resume under her belt and was even John Kerry’s web stratagist for PAC.

But that isn’t all Taylor talks about, Taylor can also be found talking about social issues that effect our world today. We are very excited to have Taylor on BlogTalkRadio and look forward to her show on Fridays at 3 pm.

Then we have some of our earliest and successful hosts, Idalyze Nahisha Rose, the funny husband and wife team of Baker Media, and Michael Bell “Celebrity Artist To The Stars”.

With all of that plus too much more to mention in 2006, the mind boggles to think what 2007 will bring to BlogTalkRadio.

Happy New Year everyone at BlogTalkRadio and thanks for making my 2006 so much fun, I cant wait till 2007, can you?
