In the last few years I've made 100's of thousands of dollars selling nothing but digital ebooks and other doo dads.
But sometimes I get sick of it, and sometimes I feel its hard to sell something that isn't tangible.
The advantages is that its instant gratification to the customer, and it costs us nothing really to provide.
However, I feel that people searching for certain things on the net, such as E-Cig, back brace, electic toothbrush, etc. is maybe a higher OCI type thing -- and that people are far more apt to buy these things..... becauise they're eager to buy even before searching for the term.
Sales pages for ebooks and stuff are usually shown to someone who is researching..
What are your thoughts on selling tangible goods? For tangible goods, the adwords ads are always loaded on the sides, meaning that stuff is being sold.
I was thinking of just going to Alibaba.com and picking out hot products i'd like to sell, and then get my SEO guys to rank me in the top 5 for hot terms for hot products, and also doing a little adwords. I'd then like to get the physical goods shipped over here and placed in a warehouse...
That leads to another question -- are there companies that will ship out the goods from a warehouse? I realize a "Fulfillment center" is the name of this for booklets, etc, but do they do it for larger goods also?
