March into Your Future

By: Catherine Perry

You can design the future you want with hard-work, dedication and passion – March into the future you love and start an ecommerce business!

It’s March Madness!! It’s time for all of the college basketball playoffs and championship games and tons of excitement! However, at Pure-Ecommerce we are thinking about March not only as the month of exciting final season games but also as the verb “to march,” as in “marching into your future.” Those who march, like members of a band or the military, do so with precision and commitment. As you embark on ecommerce business ownership, we suggest that you “march” into your future with commitment and purpose—like a precision band member does.
Do you love what you do? Are you passionate about your work? Are you building something for yourself and your family? If your answers are “no” to these questions, then you consider starting your own ecommerce business, which can give you the satisfaction of being in control of your future. Owning an ecommerce business provides a path on which you can march into a future you love!

Here are some of the great aspects of owning an ecommerce business and why you should look at Pure-Ecommerce.

You Have Choices

Because there are so many industries that translate well online, you can choose one you love and are passionate about. Do you love pets? Home decorating? Camping? Children’s clothes? Yoga? There are SO many avenues for you. If you have an interest, there is more than likely a way to get that interest online in an ecommerce business. Just like with college basketball where everyone has their favored teams, everyone has different interests for certain ecommerce industries. That’s why we provide many ready-made internet business options from which you can select just the “right” industry for you—one that you are passionate about and can be committed to!

Be Your Own Boss

If you are tired of working for someone else and would like to own your business, you can do that! You can direct your course by making all the decisions–creating marketing campaigns that build the business, ensuring customer satisfaction, providing great service and products. The consumer is waiting for the kind of business you can provide. You are the boss. If that sounds exciting to you, march into your future with Pure-Ecommerce!

Have a Flexible Schedule

Being an owner of an ecommerce business means work, but you can create a flexible schedule for when you get the work done. It doesn’t have to be a 9-to-5 workday. If you need to take care of children, run errands, or meet friends for coffee, you can do that! If you want to take a trip, take the work with you—all you need is your laptop and an internet connection! For more on what the “day in the life of an ecommerce business owner” looks like, check out another article we’ve written on this subject.

Hard Work & Dedication Leads to Success

A marching band spends hours of practice getting routines down pat. It takes dedication from each member. It’s the same with creating a successful business—dedication, commitment, and time are ALL required.
It is true the barrier of entry to get online is pretty simple, but just by being online does not give you the ability to create a successful business. It takes hard work and dedication to lead you down the path to success! Sure, it may be pretty simple for some to acquire their own vendors, have a site designed and put it online. However, the actual running, marketing and growning of the website business is the key piece to helping create a successful online store. If you don’t educate yourself as to what needs to be done, what goes into doing it you may fail, but the choice is up to you! You need to have the desire and drive to push yourself to achieve success!
It’s time for you to decide…..Do you love what you do? If not, march into your future with us—we will give you the tools to create an online business you love!

5 Reasons to Invest in Your Future with an Ecommerce Business


By: Catherine Perry

It’s a New Year and that means it’s time to think about how you can make your life even better. Here’s five reasons we think an ecommerce business is a great investment for your future!

We are in a new year! This is a time of reflection and setting new goals. It can be a time of excitement as you plan for the future. Or, it can be a time of dread if you don’t like what you see ahead of you. So take a moment to ask yourself….
  • Is it time for a New You?
  • Are you looking for a change?
  • Are you searching for a new way to create income for your future?
Then it is time to consider opening an ecommerce business! The sales numbers are strong and growing for the foreseeable future. And, there are many personal benefits of owning an ecommerce business from the flexibility of working from anywhere to the low upfront costs. In this article, we highlight five of the reasons we think owning an ecommerce business is a great opportunity and makes good business sense.
In our blogs the past couple of months, we have reported on the strength and the anticipated growth for the industry in the future. This past Cyber Monday 2016 was the biggest day in the history of U.S. e-commerce. A year ago, Internet Retailer in their article titled “Online sales will reach $523 billion by 2020 in the U.S.” reported Forrester Research saying that “online sales in the United States were expected to reach $523 billion in the next five years, which was an increase of 56% from $335 billion in 2015.” In a report titled “U.S. Cross-Channel Retail Forecast, 2015 to 2020,” Forrester Research predicted that “online sales will grow by an average annual rate of 9.32% over the next five years.”

pure-ecommerce-low-start-up-cost-blogReason #1: Low Start-up Costs

Unlike opening a brick-and-mortar retail store that has a physical location, opening an ecommerce business has relatively low startup costs. Of course, the first cost you will have with starting the business will be the purchase price of the website you choose. Websites can be purchased that are either new or existing businesses. The price of the website will depend on whether it is a new one, which has a lower price or an existing one, which will have a price commensurate with its revenue history and other factors.  Take a moment to read this post, “5 Important Things to Know Before Buying an Ecommerce Business” for helpful insight!
The other costs are monthly hosting fees, as well as, any marketing you would like to do to promote the products you offer. Hosting fees are typically less than $20 per month. Check out this related blog post – ” Ecommerce Web Host – Insight Into Choosing The Right One” – for more information on hosting your new ecommerce business. While marketing costs really depend upon how much or little you feel is needed to reach potential customers. Plus, there are many FREE ways you can promote your business – social media posts, newsletters blogging, word of mouth, family and friends, etc. You can create a budget that works for you and your business!
Many ecommerce businesses do not hold the physical inventory; instead, they use drop-shipping companies. What is Drop Shipping? Well, Drop-shipping companies maintain large inventories and ship the goods to any address that you specify. The way it works is that the customer buys an item from your store and you place an order with the drop-ship vendor. The vendor then ships the item directly to you customer. This means that the costs are even lower for you because you don’t need space for inventory. Now, see the benefits you receive when you become the owner of ecommerce business…..

Reason #2: Flexibility and Freedom pure-ecommerce-freedom-flexibility-blog

Owning an ecommerce business gives you flexibility and freedom that a regular 9-to-5 job doesn’t. You choose WHEN to work, as well as, WHERE to work. You make the decisions because you are the boss! You can work early in the morning, midday, or in the middle of the night. As long as you have internet access, you can work from anywhere. So, you don’t have to be tied to a physical location like your house in order to run the business. Many ecommerce owners find this benefit to be invaluable because they can travel and still work!

pure-ecommerce-always-open-blogReason #3: Earn money day and night – 24/7

This goes hand-in-hand with Reason #2. Because the internet is always “open,” your online store is always open as well, this is the beauty of owning an ecommerce business people can shop 24/7. You have the potential to reach customers any time and any day of the week unlike owning a physical storefront.
This means that as an ecommerce owner you can make sales and profits while you sleep or while you are on vacation. Additionally, because of the global visibility of being on the internet, you aren’t limited to a specific locale or demographic. The “world is your oyster,” both figuratively and literally!
