Where Do The Millionaires Sell ‘on The Web?’
No one disputes the fact that the internet is moving people from dead end jobs to true wealth in a matter of months.
Whether your idea of true wealth is $1 million, or a business with 20 employees, there are hundreds of people who have done it before.
The internet is a gold mine that makes some rich, but has one of the highest failure rates of any business – probably in the history of mankind.
Most people flounder around the net trying to run private shopping carts, buying SSL certificates, and finding traffic.
They try building their own content management systems and generating inbound links. The average online business quits in six months, or flounders for almost two years, before they learn how the ‘success stories’ make their money on the web.
Fulfilment Through Amazon.com
No one serious building wealth builds their own shopping carts, taking orders, and shipping product. That is what a fulfilment company is for. You all know a fulfilment company, but you have never realized what they can offer you – Amazon.com.
That is right. Amazon.com is not, just, a book selling website. Their fulfilment program lets anyone send product to their warehouse. The Amazon.com site takes the orders, packs and ships, collects the money, and then sends the web business their share.
Most fulfilment companies cost $.50 – $1.00 per item, or a commission based on size and weight. There is often a skid rental of $25 – $50 a month which more than covers the time needed to build and maintain a private website.
Everyone knows that Ebay is the world’s largest auction site. However, few people know that they own Prostores, a company that helps Internet Businesses sell their product. The power of Ebay selling. The credibility of a private store.
Security is the key to internet sales. Millions will buy from an Amazon store, or Ebay, who would never buy from a private website. The fear of Identity Theft and phishing have taken a big chunk out of small business income. That is why Paypal, an ebay company, works so hard to make their service appear to be part of the consumer’s website.
Do you need traffic? Then don’t worry about Social Networking, page rank, or Pay Per Click Programs. Buy the top spot. That is right, the first to ‘highlighted’ spaces on keyword searches can be purchased, sometimes for as little as $15 a month.
These two spots are not a part of the pay per click program. They are rented at a set fee.
Another way to increase traffic is to sign up with www.Adbrite.com . This type of company rents space at a fixed cost, or PPC, and expands to accept image, text, or even video ads.
Adbrite is an industry standard because it is the favourite of content management publishers, the big community websites.
Adbrite doesn’t have a sliding scale, like Google, or Yahoo. This means that the site gets the money earned, not what the ad company wants to pay.
A great internet marketing campaign needs a good product to sell. Without a good product, and a great distribution system, no business, no matter how much potential it has, will succeed – especially on the net.
