on on these holsters are just for my opponent for my %ah you know
while so it’s chic geek if you well and I that mean said so that when people ask

if you’re living in skills this scenario does hell but just to get
your brand identity after it will not halt when you’re actually
searching for your business or when someone
searching for your business so let’s go to some examples let’s say
you’re starting e-commerce business on you last saw her your e-commerce
business and truck I truck trader dollar or truck driver or I don’t know maybe it’s real estate
her legal and what happens legal hell in Los
Angeles you know you actually type of questions in new Google saw what ends up happening
is if you don’t have your domain name so
what do you need to do first first have to have a domain name now
what is that a domain name is simply a name that people don’t type into are
the URL or type into a browser and find you but
why not have a domain name that’s equal to the target market that
you’re looking for so legal help in Los Angeles France’s it CP
can all night I would go to go daddy: and I know that
people are typing in legal help in Los Angeles legal how in Los Angeles and if you wanna rank for this were now
down the road we’re going to get into exactly how I rank for web sites but legal help for lost he legal help in Los
Angeles for instance is available so some most high pinion legal help in Los Angeles n you had the
domain name legal help in Los Angeles dot com you stand a chance of really wanking hi in that she worked sam says or domain
name is your box ha messo first thing you
want to do second it’s going to all the tools
available for ukraine website do you want to create a Wix website no do you want to create %uh e-commerce
like a shot by website know do you like credible lose a website
while he was at seven thousand dollars with no e-commerce capability you know
it’s not gonna really help you all these packages let’s really cut to
the chase are all about you just getting a
presence quickly as possible but it will not allow you to sell what
do you need to stop you’ll need a merchant account you need
a shot you need it 8 shopping cart now some of these programs like allusions
case does com with the shopping cart but it doesn’t calm with the merchant
account mean you me away the to receive your Visa
MasterCard and most of the programs that they make
a mean are recommending very high percentages I mean look at
their alternate deal here for 7900 ninety five dollars but they real you win by saying you know do a
test three a cap blah blah same thing was shot by you
coming here you look at the prices and they have
this unlimited package here for 179 dollars but the real you wanna 14 dollar-a-month in all test right but doesn’t really do
anything for you while it doesn’t come with a merchant
account so you still have to get a merchant account in a merchant account again ties into
your shopping cart so what you need is a hybrid you need a
hybrid system that can allow you to do things what are
the best ones I down is actually lugar’s are where they’re looking at a hybrid I’ll a
website with a shopping cart with merchant
services with marketing advertising with product
inventory for other yeah out what everybody has
out there now I like to obviously broadcast it
because when I find good deals you know we take a look at that now
let’s take a look at one other video so you guys can get an idea up what they do and how did old when I first started my business loving not be brown home which only coupons hang up my resume he
is now we can hold but nothing worked it seems like everyone’s last last on trying to create my own e-commerce was
whole desire cost the hope for peace he is which he %uh each of the hard to deal
with the harmful it must where he also coached think I
would resign everything was so easy here faster is
jointly with about it he scooped Honda part is he working its Gold Supplier on cell have a happy google it its on hot on my
home haha the human 14 home I hands and services huh other business
it’s ok with your parents yes single home yeahh life and let’s just hope that our from you on on hardware out who is on trial stop com well I think that said it all in in the problem solution approach that
I have been business where you look at the problems that a lot a
website are offering up there and they’re not offering an SEO package
not offering you know something that actually up is
completely usable Russian state in offer certain values of
course they do but first 7900 five dollars why don’t
have a merchant liar I have you know goods SEO
capabilities water have this water had and in the case which axis tall cap
commend there’s no way we were intimate things on you know I as an advertiser and as a
web advertiser more than anything and as the helper we should charge people
the exact same hot money that these people are charging eight thousand dollars for website fifty
thousand dollars a website good looks are correct you’ll see the
prices is just a couple hundred bucks compared to a
couple thousand dollars is not day plus the council everything
you can see out there so my best recommendation how to start
an e-commerce business he really is it’s completely a chunky
scenario where someone can come in here start the
whole e-commerce business and if they don’t have a business if
you’ve got the looks on track now you can have a business by offering

Am I Too Late to Start an eCommerce Business on Amazon?


– Everyone I’m Jamie Davidson with AMZ Insiders. A little bit about ourselves. Myself and my two fellow
co-founders Jason and Brad combined to sell over $75
million on Amazon last year. This year we’ll do over
$100 million all on Amazon. And today what we’re gonna talk about is another really frequently
asked question we get from people, friends and family, and people all over the globe which is, is it too late to get
started selling on Amazon? And or an e-commerce. And the answer is absolutely not. No way not even close. Not remotely. What happens is people
see certain elements small niches of something being maybe a certain product being maybe a little bit saturated and so forth. The reality we are very much
still in the very early stages of selling on Amazon and e-commerce. E-commerce currently is only 10% believe it or not it’s
only 10% of all commerce. Which is incredible because look at the chart of
the growth of e-commerce over the last ten years it’s like this. It’s incredible. And Amazon is by the far
the most dominant player within the e-commerce space. And that being the case, it’s like this it’s projected to be again keep in mind we’re only at 10% so over the next five years for example it’s expected to be to triple . The growth rate is expected to triple, to become only 30% of all commerce. Right so that’s still only a third. And so for years and years you
got so, so, so much growth. Think about the iphones
only been around for barely a decade. Barely a decade and think about how much that’s changed things. And with e-commerce particularly that’s one of the biggest reasons that Amazon is such a huge opportunity is because of the growth of mobile and how we’ve very much
still in the early stages of mobile and how much
further we have to go. The reason why Amazon
is such a great platform and such a great opportunity, because most people buy things now mobile. They actually use their phone. They still use computers
and everything else. But Amazon has made it so
easy to buy on your phone. I’m sure you’ve used Amazon. If you’re going to buy on Amazon, you are disappointed if you go to Amazon and you’re not able to buy something. It’s pretty rare. Right people go to Amazon
with the expectation that they’re gonna click the buy button, they’re gonna have it on the door step within no later than two
days with Amazon Prime. And really now a days you
can actually get stuff delivered by the same day. A lot of products you can literally get within hours delivered to your house. And so with that, it’s awesome from the consumer side. But also creates a huge opportunity that is still very much in early
stages on the selling side. In terms of Amazon in particular, Amazon is bigger than the next 10 biggest e-commerce platforms combined. That is why we eat,
breathe, and sleep Amazon. Is because it’s so much bigger than all the other e-commerce platforms. Even though we sell on all
sorts of other platforms We sell on Walmart.com We sell on ebay, we sell on bunch of e-commerce platforms you probably never heard of. Still all day long, whenever we’re focused on
our e-commerce business we always go to Amazon and
focus on that primarily because that’s where
all the customers are. And so basically if you
can get your product, if you have a good quality product you can get in front of this
massive amount of customers that are all on Amazon. And you leverage Amazon’s
system and do things. You can sell an incredible
amount of money per month. That’s why you hear people selling these incredible amounts of
sales on Amazon every month because they’re taking
advantage of the traffic. Now it’s not to say it’s easy
and doesn’t require any work. That’s not true. With anything in life, there’s kind of winners and losers. And just know that there’s
incredible opportunity. Those that get on the
platform and think that they’re just gonna throw stuff up there. They’re not gonna learn
how to actually do it, follow a process, learn from people who actually
know what they’re doing, sure those people are gonna struggle. Which we like because
we know there’s gonna be those that are successful and those that are not. And if that wasn’t the case, it really wouldn’t be an option at all. Because if anyone could just do it, then sure wouldn’t be an opportunity. But the reality is, there is absolutely
huge, huge opportunities. It’s a matter of who’s gonna
get that slice of the pie. I mean the pie is getting
bigger, and bigger, and bigger. But again I’m sure if you read about it, every week all the new
articles about Amazon getting bigger and bigger. And local retailers
struggling more and more or big retailers chain
retailers going out of business. And again it’s called the Amazon effect. And that’s not going away. There’s certain things
that can be debated about how to go about certain things. But what’s not in debate is
the growth of e-commerce. All right we’re still very
much in the early stages and there’s very much a long ways to go. Related to that, if you’re interested in
