Perhaps you have a brick and mortar store and are upset with all of your potential shoppers who are shopping online.  This blog post will help you set up your own online store.  Promote online to people in your own city. You can have the best of both worlds — ebiz and physical store.

Perhaps you want to sell downloadable products throughout the English-speaking world.  This blog post will help with that too.

Lay the foundation

As the cliche says, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”  You will want to set up your store in neat columns & rows with buy now buttons that will add your sales tax and freight and then collect the money for you.  Before you do that, lay your foundation.

Earn a percentage of the selling price for every book sold.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a marketing arrangement by which the owner of a good or service pays a commission to a third party (the affiliate). The affiliate has an external website that promotes the good or service. The affiliate gets a commission for every sale generated from its referrals.

An example of this is ClickBank.  Every product on that website is some sort of downloadable software.  An affiliate creates a website that promotes the software.  When someone downloads the software from a link on that website, an affiliate code will be included in the order. ClickBank will give the affiliate code owner a fixed percentage of the sale amount.  (ClickBank will also get a percentage of the sale.)

Ebiz is here to stay

Ecommerce retail sales are increasing at a rate much faster than regular brick & mortar store sales.  If you are interested in retail, ebiz is the way to go.
