The following are several tools that members can use to promote ECI. The first three are designed with eBay in mind. First is a message that a member can copy and paste at the bottom portion of his auction's description. Just press and hold down the left mouse button and drag the cursor over all the entire area highlighted in light blue to select the text from the beginning of the message to the end. Once the complete area is selected, right click on the selected area and click on "copy" when it appears in the drop down menu. The text has now been saved to the clipboard. When you have written all you want about the auction at hand begin a new paragraph and place the cursor at the beginning. Click on the right mouse button again and then on "paste." If all has gone well with copying the message, it will be added to the description here.

The second message is one that ought to be included when sending the winner of your auction his payment instructions. Follow the directions as written above and add to your notice where appropriate.

Third is an addition to your "Me" page on eBay whether you are a buyer, seller or both. The more the collecting public sees our name in lights the more they will come to understand our importance to them as collectors of encased coins. If we believe in what we are about is worthwhile and has true value, then we need to do all that we can to spread the "ECI Gospel."  There is no better place than  eBay's "Me" page for starters. If you would like assistance in building a "Me" page from scratch click HERE. Otherwise, do as instructed above and pasted the message into the page where wanted. By the way you can add an additional to ECI under the heading of "May Favorite Links."
