I am selling products via the net in my spare time. But my business isn't very good. Perhaps this is because I don't work it as my full time job. Lately it seems that I got more requires from buyers. Although there is not a confirmation yet, but at least it's better than nobody asks me questions about my products

Hello, i don't do online business but one of my friend is doing. She doesn't get good performace and is considering selling sth that'll easily be noticed by buyers. She asks me for opinion, hehe, how can i? I guess choosing the right products is only one step, lots of efforts have to be made before we finally earn money. At the very beginning, it may be very difficult, few people know about the shop and people will not buy stuffs in a never heard shop, at least not that quickly, they'd doubt the quality, the seller's credibility etc. But if you perform well, buyers tend to be more and more, the number will gradually grow and that really counts. Good luck, youless, keep up, you will make it. BTW, which products do you sell, maybe i can buy from you if i need, huh? **Enjoy life~~**

Hey youless, you have a little store online? My roommates and I have one too, selling bags. But things are not so good either. Whatever, lately the design of that brand we sell is not that attractive really. We have no idea what's the boss is thinking.

You know nowadays there are many online stores, so the competition is very heat.

I am totally alien to the online marketing, i mean selling products via online. I am more interested in writing, and want to build a career in this segment. Wow..it is a nice improvement, as you get some inquiries regarding your products. Then certainly, i have confidence on your ability that you will make the inquiries in to a sale. Cheers friend, and gear up your success.

Oh, what kind of products do you sell? Maybe it's not the amount of time you're putting into it but the pitch you're trying to sell. A good salesman tends to have a good pitch. Maybe you need to offer more incentive(depending on the product), or maybe it's a possibility that you're somehow making your product sound unappealing, orrrr! Possibly you're just simply targeting the wrong audience, or trying to target too big of an audience. Maybe a revamping of some sort is needed? All just opinions of mine! G'luck, hopefully it picks up for you, =) As for me, I don't really run any online businesses as of yet, but I want to. I'm trying to do as much research as possible & trying to figure out the best audiences I can target for products n' services i'm interested in selling! Anyways, hope I was helpful. =)

In fact what I am selling doesn't have a specific direction. I sell the housewares and other products.

Well, hopefully, you will end up with more sales than you know what to do with. I hope to see you have to hire someone to help you out.

Hi youless, you have done a good job of selling products via the net. It is worth to spend your spare time doing this though your business still not reaching your set target yet. I had visited your online webshop just now and I find the items there are attractive and the prices are reasonable as well. I hope your online business will be improved and flourishing very soon. I do not participate in any of this online business yet at the present moment. Hope to experience it one day. Have a nice day.

You're right, at least someone is interested enough to ask! I haven't got any spare time for my beauty stuff lately, I could just spare a few minutes everyday to do stuff for myself because my work is really crazy. But I do want to catch up a bit on the weekend.

In fact I found that beauty stuff sells quite well. At least I have already bought some via the net

Hello dear youless. I think that it is a good idea to have some online business selling some small products for daily use. Two of my nephews are doing some small online business as well. They are interested in selling electric products aimed for youngsters and those who are interested in them. But I do not have such an experience. I do hope that some day I will get some chance to try for it to see how it goes. Anyway, I wish you good luck in your business with more and more profits from selling those products online.

I blog and write articles. I am very pleased with how it is all working out, though I don't make as much money as I hope to one day. That is just life though...what can I say? I have watched my earnings grow from nothing and that is what really matters.

Perhaps you can be a good writer one day, and you will earn quite a lot at that time

My online business is not doing so great either. I think it is because of the economy and these high gas prices. My local sales has went down a bit too. I hope they pick up soon.
