Information is widely available, however, information that is engaging and worth paying for is hard to find.
1. You can do it from anywhere
2. It’s scalable
3. It’s easy to learn
4. You don’t need to handle inventory
5. You don’t need to deal with Import/Export.
6. It doesn’t take a fortune to get started
The beauty of e-commerce is that you can set up a store online and sell from anywhere and at anytime, without having to personally tend your inventory or spend twelve hours a day sitting at a register. Amazon allows you to sell while you’re doing other things and your systems fulfill those sales. It’s true freedom.
With traditional retail, if you want to grow, you need to find another location, build additional inventory, hire more staff, and more. It’s a huge commitment with a lot of risk. With Amazon, you simply continue to find good products, optimize your pages, and watch as your customer base grows. You invest in the system, not in locations.
Learning a system and getting started selling on Amazon is easy to do. In fact a 9-year uses the system with great success. Who needs an allowance when you can make thousands of dollars with your own business as a kid? Seriously though, if a 9-year old can do it, so can you.
