WHAT IS eCOMMERCE?
Simply defined, it means “commercial transactions conducted electronically on the Internet”.
But what does that mean exactly?
To help make a visual connection to eCommerce, think of Amazon or Wayfair or many online stores that you shop at today.
When you shop online and pay for the transaction on the internet, that is eCommerce.
You can think of it as a Retail Store as well. Also, it’s like a Brick and Mortar store except it’s online instead of at a physical location.
See, sounds fancy but really it isn’t Lol
What Is The Hype Around eCommerce?
eCommerce has gained popularity over the past years because simply put, almost anyone can own their own eCommerce store.
In addition, the startup costs are low and the big kicker, you don’t have to have your own products or keep inventory! That alone is worth it.
Imagine owning your own business but not having to turn down guests because there are boxes of inventory filling up the guest room 😂
Now you COULD run your business that way however I’ve found it MUCH easier to allow someone else to hold the inventory while I just focus on selling.
How Do I Start An eCommerce Store?
Actually, it’s really never been easier. You can get started with a Shopify store in less than 5 mins (no really!) and you can have your business up and running very quickly, depending on your time and skill set of course.
You could also start a WordPress Site and use WooCommerce to build a store.
All you need is an idea of what you want to sell, some marketing experience and drive to make it happen.
