Many people know what commerce is but not many people know what e-commerce is. E-commerce is essentially a transaction that takes places over the internet. An exchange of money for goods or services rendered. The same way it would be done for the traditional business model of a brick and mortar store.
However, for many people, this model seems very vague because they cannot touch or feel it especially when it comes to physical products being sold over the internet. Most people do not know where to start to start advertising their services or products. The usual route would be to contact a designer and start building a website and load your products on there, add shopping cart functionality and then start advertising on Google, Facebook, Pinterest etc to start driving traffic to your store similarly to how you would create flyers, business cards and pamphlets to market your traditional store.
I want to make your task of selling your products easier by not having to worry about where to sell, and getting the traffic to your store. Which marketplace should you be selling in so that all you can worry about is proving a good quality product/products to your customers?
What Is The Best Ecommerce Platform?
Amazon. Simple. Why do you ask? Well because Amazon owns two-thirds of all the world’s online traffic. Millions of people are searching for products 24/7 that they are looking for on Amazon. It makes sense to start your business in the Amazon marketplace. Now, most e-commerce stores have a 2 – 5% conversion rate whereas on Amazon you average at about a 15% conversion rate which is pretty high against stand-alone e-commerce sites.
What Is The Best Ecommerce?
Now to remain fair I would say for me Amazon is the best as I knew very little about internet business and that’s where I started. I needed the guidance and mentorship and that was found through an online workshop which I still follow and attend containing lectures and one on one help to get me going in this e-commerce business. Some people prefer to offer money in exchange for services on platforms such as Upwork, Fiverr etc.
But… if you don’t want to always be exchanging time for money then selling physical products on Amazon is the way to go and start with. Once your products are at Amazon warehouse all you have to focus on is that your listing is optimised and your sponsored advertising is running. This way you can focus on building your brand and adding more products to your store to sell. So if you looking to build a business that is fully automated then selling physical private label products on amazon is the way to go.
