While going through some of my older blog posts last week, I found many ecommerce-related articles which I wrote before that would be a good help if you are planning to jump into the world of internet commerce.
Everyone I know seems eager to reap profits from this ‘new’ medium. Actually there’s nothing new about commerce and ecommerce is just an extension of what you and I have been doing all along.
But add the element of the Internet and some things change.
Like you can now be a work-at-home and stay-at-home mom and still have an opportunity to make money, unlike decades before. Like you can now be a student and be a part-time entrepreneur selling stuff online to earn your own pocket money.
The playing field’s leveled in so many ways since the Internet entered our lives. Everyone now has a chance to try something online, particularly if it’s business as it takes minimal cost to start a business online. And you can work it from anywhere! How much better can it get?
So here’s some of our best and most popular ecommerce articles from our blogging since 2005 (some 3 years ago…many are still highly relevant).
