My site is really getting where I want it to be. However, to be honest, this is a ton of work. Alot of my work is delt with customer service issues---anwering emails, talking to customers on chat about the product, being engaged in my social media platforms with my followers. Occasional product returns. Not to mention designing graphics daily for all the image marketing necessary in today's world. I enjoy talking to customers etc---I really have received EXCELLENT response from my customers how delighted they were with customer service. But while I am chatting with customers about why to to buy widget X or Z---I should be doing internet marketing and growing this business.
Even filling orders---I have to do this manually---it takes time. One of my suppliers lets me send all my orders via one form daily. But ---i then don't get tracking codes for packages automatically.
The whole goal was to travel and work from anywhere. Still doable...but I have full 9 to 5 days. I think the answer is just keep it up, because eventually I can outsource some of this.
I feel like this system should be much more automated---but perhaps not. The next direction I go into---I would like a more "hands off" money maker--affiliate marketing etc. I really enjoy my work now. Advice?
