    What is your definition of e-commerce business?

    If you want some advice, you'll have to provide more details regarding what it is you are actually doing.

  • I have/had the following types of sites:
    • Drop Shipping Stores
    • Software Sales
    • eBook Stores
    • Infoproduct Sites
    • Membership Sites (non-adult)
    Making a profit is pretty easy to do if you follow a tried-and-true path. Trying to do it without help or without following a good plan that has been pioneered by others is pretty tough.

    For stores the best path is to go for good search engine position for the products you are selling. Follow up by building a list in your niche and doing email marketing of your products to that niche.

    In non-store sites getting the support of the mega-site owners in your niche and following up with email marketing has worked well for me.

    The truth is people are making real income online. Most of the people own a successful internet business today all have a story to tell.

    Why discriminate between the two?

    All you need to think about is:

    1) Are you promoting products that will convert?
    2) Are you focussing on a keyword/keywords that you have a chance of ranking well for (if you are going for organic traffic)?
    3) Does/do the keyword(s) that you focus on have a high enough search volume to make sales? Are they buying keywords?
    4) Have you done your SEO properly?
    5) Does your site look professional and convert?

    That's it!

    Biggest problem that I see is that people try and sell what they want to sell and do not allow the competition and market to drive their choice of product(s)/niche.

    If you fulfill 1) to 5) you will make sales. If you don't you'll hardly make any. If you feel that you can fulfill these then keep trying. If not, or you have already tried, then give up and move onto a different niche.

      Yes, I do agree. Most important thing is Focus and Take Action. I have seen many people are still sitting on the fence waiting for the so-call right timing. If you do not take action, there will be no result. Even if you have failed once or twice, don't be despair instead learn the lesson and improve. There is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow as long as you are determined to succeed.

      For your info, I have failed many times and lost more than $20,000. But I am still here learning the ropes and taking action all the time.

    There are many online businesses around and you should be carefully what you choose to do.
    All of them will promise you a A LOT OF TIME in NO TIME! But that's the catch...
    Whatever you decide to do, do not expect to get anything for free - no work no money!
    You always have to put some effort into your decision and it's never "brain-dead-simple".
    But, and now it comes: But you can get successful and you will if you try hard enough. But don't expect it overnight...

    So go through this forum and read what people say about their experience - you will learn a lot.

      You are absolutely right. You have to put a little effort into what ever it is to reap the rewards. Remember the saying "if it looks to good to be true, it probably is".

      Thomas, for God's' sakes, you're on a PC on a forum. You need to be more PC.

      What did you do, buy a Mac?

      Yes. It's no different from selling things offline. The internet is just a different medium. In order to make money online, you have to:

      1. Have something to sell that there's actually a demand for.

      2. Have a way of consistently getting people who want that product to come to your website.

      3. Have a way of converting those website visitors into buyers.

      If you do each of those three things, you can't NOT make money. Each of those topics has been covered extensively on this forum.

        Your question raises some interesting questions. Hope you don't mind.

        How long have you been online?

        What kind of business model are you using?

        Why are you doing it?


        A little more detail will get you a lot more help...

          I'm very much a newbie to trying to get a foot in the door here also, but it has to work...for my boring day job i talk to tons of people everyday and I have to collect their occupation info. So many of them work from home...It has made me so jealous that I am now convinced that by trial and error, and lots of studying there's lots of opportunity to make a living... I noticing patience and perseverance are key...Good Luck -K
