Today’s retirees are made up of baby boomers that are healthy, active and savvy. You know the value of hard work and where it can take you. You’ve also been there and done that. In retirement, you want to travel, see the world and to have all those experiences you never had time for while working 9 to 5 and raising a family. So why don’t you? Sometimes it is an issue of being able to afford to travel and do the things you want. Sometimes it is just because you get in a rut of doing the same thing day after day. We at Pure-Ecommerce believe it is time to rule your own life – especially in retirement.
Minimal investment and a manageable work load!
Investing in an online business takes minimal start-up capital, especially when compared to a traditional brick and mortar business. It also allows you the freedom and flexibility to travel and work when you want. The business, like any other will not work itself, you will have to work it but the beauty of an online business is you’re the boss and you decide when and where. You can travel the world and work from the hotel room or the internet café while enjoying your coffee. All you need is a laptop, a phone and a connection to the internet.
Forecast = Continued Growth
Ecommerce is booming and not just the US. Ecommerce is growing globally. Shoppers are turning away from brick and mortar stores and instead turning to online shopping. You can’t beat the convenience – 24/7 access to the store and shipping directly to your door. People shop from home and they shop on their cell phones. It is a massive market with plenty of room still for growth. eMarketer predicts ecommerce will continue to grow until at least 2017 when they predict sales to top $2.3 trillion.
Less risk due to low overhead, consulting and training!
If you’re looking for an opportunity to pursue in retirement then we recommend considering an online business opportunity. You can own your own business in an industry that is growing. Our internet businesses for sale carry all drop ship products which means you don’t have to carry inventory. We establish the relationship with the vendor in the niche market your website targets and load the products for you. When a customer purchases the product, you will place the order with the vendor and the vendor ships the product directly to your consumer – that’s the beauty of drop ship.
Are you concerned that you have no ecommerce or retail experience? Our website packages come with 40 hours of step by step ecommerce consulting and training. Our ecommerce consultants will take you through the Pure-E process developed by our founder and CEO, Jen Varner. When Jen started her first online store, she’ll tell you she made every mistake in the book but also experienced great success. She took what she learned and developed a system to educate others. Jen is driven by her entrepreneurial spirit and wants others to experience this joy as well.
