Every year more and more people are spending more and more money online. As the percentage of people online grows and online transactions become a lot safer it is fast becoming The Way to Shop.
And why wouldn't it? when you can shop from the comfort of your home, or anywhere, get prices much lower than retail and have the items delivered straight to you. Yes shopping online sure does beat driving around looking for a carpark, standing in lines and battling the crowds.
1. The Online Shop is Here
Sites like amazon have offered online marketers a place to sell for years now but as the online giant's rules became more and more stringent, and many amazon sellers had their accounts shutdown meaning an instant loss of income, the sellers started looking for options.
Because of this need and the advancement in software sites like Etsy, Squarespace and Shopify were born given online marketers a platform where they could create their own online stores without the rules and restrictions of Amazon.
So now the door is open on e-commerce, it's cheap and easy to start and there is a lot of money to be made. When I say a lot I mean a lot, there are shopify stores that are making $40 - $50,00 per month, selling just one product.
I know right that sounds like a lot, but it's true. Just think, there are over a hundred million people online and all you need is a very small percent to make a huge profit.
Online store platforms like Shopify give anyone the opportunity to build an online business cheaply and easily. Shopify let you start with a 14 day Free Trial and as we dropship the products there is literally no upfront costs.
Dropshipping is where you advertise products and you only buy them when they have been sold, with your customer's money, meaning you are never out of pocket.
So as you can see having your own e-commerce store really is an amazing opportunity.
