Can I Start an Online Business?

February 17th, 2017

brain-gearsSo you are thinking about starting an online business, right? But you are struggling to know if it’s a good idea, or if you can be successful at it?

Well, you will find a lot of websites out there with misleading information, such as; “You can earn thousands selling online!” or “Anyone can succeed selling online!”

These statements are simply not true. The only true statement is that anyone can start an online business, but no one can promise you will succeed at it and obviously no one can promise you will earn thousands, unless of course they are going to pay you thousands for starting one. (We all know THAT isn’t going to happen!)

So, can YOU start an online business?
Absolutely! Anyone can. Anyone can start selling products on eBay or Amazon or on your own website. Where you choose to sell is up to you. Many people just like you are running their own online businesses, and so why can’t you do that too?

It is a good idea?
Yes! Black Friday 2016 broke records for online sales. There were more sales online than ever in the history of selling products online through various selling channels. Even though there are more businesses starting to sell online, there are more shoppers too, so there is always room for more.

Can you be successful?
Maybe! It’s a real job, and you will only be successful if you work hard, educate yourself, be willing to put in long hours, and be willing to fail a few times & accept that may happen.

You also need a good idea. If you have ideas of what to sell, make sure to do your research to know if it really is a good idea to sell that product. You don’t want to try to offer things that are already saturated online, so stay away from product ideas where the competition is extremely high. There are also products that not just anyone can sell online, so you have to research that as well before you set your heart on it. The competition for these brands that have seller restrictions is low for a reason.

So in short, can you start an online business? YES!
Is it a good idea to start one? YES!
Will you be successful? MAYBE!

We don’t make false promises here at WorldwideBrands.com We have been speaking the truth about selling online for well over a decade.

Black Friday 2016: Record Breaking Year!

December 2nd, 2016

Graph on computer in Coffee ShopYear after year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue to be the BIGGEST online shopping days of the year and this year wasn’t any different. In fact, these shopping days broke some records!

Adobe has been gathering information from the 22.6 BILLION visits to websites during this Holiday Shopping Season and found some interesting things.

  1. There were actually more online shoppers on Black Friday than Cyber Monday this year. $3.34 BILLION dollars was spent shopping online for Black Friday and if you include the shopping that was done on Thanksgiving, that equals $5.27 BILLION.
  2. More people shopped using their mobile devices. Black Friday 2016 became the first day in retail history to drive over $1.2 BILLION dollars in sales from mobile devices, mainly smartphones!
  3. Retailers that invested in mobile, email and social marketing saw 30% more sales and 25% higher average orders.
  4. Retailers that used Shopper Helper Sites like RetailMeNot and CNET saw a 16.5% share of sales.
  5. Promotional emails about Black Friday showed 17.8% share of sales.
  6. There was quite a bit of traffic from search ads and direct traffic to the retailers websites, these numbers dropped, even though it is still the largest contributor of the online sales. Sales from search ads dropped 4.3% and direct traffic sales dropped 9.6%.
  7. Customers spent more on Thanksgiving Day this year than last. Sales increased by 11.5%

Adobe measures 80% of ALL online transactions from the top 100 US retailers, more than any other technology company, and uses its proven predictive model to forecast online sales and trends. $7.50 out of every $10.00 spent online with the top 500 US retailers goes through Adobe Marketing Cloud. This amazing amount of data puts Adobe at the top to deliver accurate online sales totals and trends.

Did you see growth on these shopping days for your online store? If not, you should start thinking about strategies for the next major shopping holiday.

Valentine’s Day is another big online shopping day that will be here before you know it! Valentine’s Day 2016 resulted in $18.9 BILLION dollars in sales, and is yet another holiday that year over year retailers see online sales increase. So get started working on what you want to do for Valentine’s Shoppers this year, we already know the big retailers are thinking about it or already have plans in place!
