Steve Chou – Create A Profitable Online Store
Follow A Proven Step By Step Process To Starting A Successful Online Store And Becoming Your Own Boss
Chances are, you found this website because youâ€™re tired. Youâ€™re tired of working at your day job. Youâ€™re tired of having to drag yourself out of bed every day to spend 8 hours at a place you donâ€™t even like. Youâ€™re tired of having to answer to someone else.
After all, itâ€™s about time you called the shots and became your own boss. Itâ€™s about time you set your own schedule. Itâ€™s about time you took charge of your life. Bottom line, wouldnâ€™t you rather be spending more time with your kids or your friends and family?
Most people think that starting your own business is too risky. If you read the paper or watch the news on television, youâ€™ve probably heard by now that 90% of small businesses fail during their first year of business. And if you pay attention to this statistic, youâ€™re making a huge mistake.
Why? Itâ€™s because most of the people who fail donâ€™t know what theyâ€™re doing. Most people who fail jump right in without doing the research. Most people who fail have no clue how to market their business.
Honestly, anyone can put up an online store website, but the difference between success and failure is your ability to drive targeted customers to your website and your ability to complete the sale.
Myth #1: Starting A Business Is Too Risky
Most people think that starting their own business has to be an expensive and risky endeavor. While it is true that many successful entrepreneurs self-fund their startups by racking up massive debt on their credit cards, it definitely does not have to be that way.
In fact, my wife and I launched our first online store while both working full time jobs. And with just $629.90 initially invested into the businessâ€¦
We managed to earn $102,113 in profit within the span of a year from our niche online store
Thanks to the Internet, starting your own online business is as inexpensive and risk free as ever. One of the most amazing aspects of running an online business rather than a traditional brick and mortar store is that you can reach hundreds of millions of potential customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
By setting up a computer to manage your storefront for you, you can create a business that can be run for as little as $4.95 a month while freeing up your time to do things that you actually enjoy.
The best part about opening a store online is that your business will continue to grow as word of mouth travels about your store and you become further entrenched in the search engines. Every year since the launch of our online store, our business has increased in the double and triple digits.
Myth #2: Putting Up A Good Looking Website Is Too Hard
Most people who are new to the web are afraid of the technical aspects of launching a website. In fact before I started my online store, I used to think that starting a website was too difficult as well. Then one day, a close friend of mine showed me his website where he was selling photos online. I was so thoroughly impressed with his online store that I asked him who he used to design his website.
When he told me that he did it all by himself, I was astounded because he did not know anything about web design. The truth is that all of the software is already written for you and it is completely free and easy to install. You can literally launch a full blown and fully functional shopping cart website with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Myth #3: Finding Products To Sell At A Profit Is Next To Impossible
Itâ€™s true. Finding products to sell by using the search engines and the Internet is difficult to do. Why? Itâ€™s because the Internet is full of scammers and middlemen who pretend to be wholesalers and are just waiting to rip you off.
In fact, looking online for products to sell using the search engines is probably the worst way to find wholesale vendors for your online store.
The truth is that most legit wholesalers donâ€™t advertise online and rarely advertise at all. They donâ€™t advertise because they donâ€™t want every little mom and pop store contacting them to ask to sell their products. Instead, most wholesalers only want to deal with legit, honest businesses that can sell in sufficient volumes.
I will teach you how to find legit wholesalers for your store and how to distinguish the true distributors from the scammers so you can buy your goods at rock bottom prices. For those of you who do not want to store your own goods, I will also teach you how to run a dropshipped online store without having to carry any inventory whatsoever!
