What E-commerce Model is the Best for You ?

e-commerce model

Hello to all my friends and readers (bigcashers) it’s Darrell back at you on a  beautiful  sunny  afternoon here in Iowa for a serious share.

A lot of my readers have been asking me questions and for my advice lately on what type of e-commerce business model to pursue.

So I want to go over all the different models out there and give you enough information so you can make an educated decision for yourself.

This holiday season more than $ 600 billion will be spent in the U.S alone so hopefully with this  e-commerce information my readers will get their share of that holiday money.

Here at the cash blog the number one questions I do get is how long will it take to make money with a blog or with an e-commerce business ?

Read this  helpful post How Long Does it take to Make Money Blogging?

The pattern I’m seeing is entrepreneurs tend  to choose the business model to pursue based purely on how easy it is to start, as opposed to considering the actual probability of success.

In fact a lot of people ask why go through the hustle of selling physical products online when they can just be an affiliate.

Read this  top post about the Top 4 affiliate marketing programs.

Why should they start their own inventory when they can simply dropship all their goods and why should they even bother setting up a shopping cart when they can just put up a blog and sell advertising?

I’m going to go over all the different e-commerce business models that I’ve seen online,discuss the pros and cons and let you decide for yourself.

I believe the more work and the more effort you put into your business to be successful the more sustainable your business will be in the long run because it will be that much harder for someone to copy you.

Read this book Dropshipping and E-commerce for more ideas.

According to the Huffington Post the e-commerce barrier to entry continues to get lower as more tools help more entrepreneurs go digital.

One of the most popular business models I get asked about is drop shipping.

Dropshipping

Dropshipping is basically when you put up a website to take orders,but you don’t have to carry any inventory. Instead of fulfilling the products yourself,the vendor is responsible for shipping the order to the end customer.

It’s really cheap to start up a drop shipping business because all you need is a website essentially. All you need to do is find a vendor who is willing to dropship for you and then list his products on your website.

The downside of drop shipping is that margins are super low. Mainly because someone else is storing all the inventory doing fulfillment.

Because the margins are low paid advertising becomes tougher many times you are going to be stuck relying on search engine optimization.

The other downside of drop shipping is that you are not really in control of customer support, anything that goes wrong is on you.

What’s also complicated is maintaining inventory issues.

But overall what makes drop shipping fragile in terms of a business model. You are heavily dependent on your vendors for your business reputation. A vendor can cancel the drop shipping arrangement anytime.

eBay /Amazon arbitrage

The next business model I want to talk about is drop shipping from Amazon to eBay. This is also know as eBay/ Amazon arbitrage.

First you find products at Amazon that are selling higher on eBay and then you take the images and the product copy from the Amazon product and you post an identical listing on eBay that is significantly higher in cost.

This business model works because people who shop on eBay tend to not shop on Amazon and because people are not aware eBay is not the cheapest place to shop.

As soon as the auction closes on eBay the seller then purchases the exact same product on Amazon and has it shipped over to  the eBay customer. And so basically you are just leveraging the difference in prices from Amazon and eBay.

Read this post that went viral Become an Amazon Affiliate and Prosper.

Basically all you need is an eBay account and an Amazon purchasing account. It’s easy to get started. You might get banned on eBay but it is attractive if you want a business that has no overhead cost.

Retail Arbitrage /RA

The next business model I want to talk about is called retail arbitrage or RA for short it has become popular over the last couple of years.

A good friend Ritchie makes 6 figures doing this and he teaches others how to do this as well and here’s how it works.

According to Fortune magazine 40% of the world’s online population has bought something online.

You walk into a liquidation store like a Big Lots or TJ Maxx and go straight to the clearance section. So you basically go in buy the entire clearance section and then you list these products on Amazon.

The reason this model works is because alot of consumers don’t have access to some of these stores, the onlything they have access to is Amazon so they are willing to pay higher prices.

What’s nice about this business model is you don’t need a website you can use Amazon’s huge market place for instant sales, there is practically no start up cost except for your initial inventory.

The downside is that your business is 100% at the mercy of Amazon and you constantly need to go on these shopping trips to find new goods to list on the platform.

So basically this means the amount of money you can make doing retail arbitrage is limited to the amount you can go shopping for bargains.

Lately Amazon has introduced alot of new rules that discourage this business model. Amazon has been preventing sellers from selling certain brands without approval from the manufacturer.

These factors are making retail arbitrage difficult right now. While this business is easy to do and can be lucrative, it is risky right now because Amazon can ban your brand you are selling.

Dropshipping on Amazon

The next business model I want to review is drop shipping on Amazon. That is droppshipping on Amazon against versus your own site,they are similar.

The only difference is that you are drop shipping to people who have bought on Amazon instead,and the procedure is the same.

You need to find drop ship vendors who are willing to ship products to the end customer on your behalf and it’s important to note that this business model does not use FBA or fulfilled by Amazon.

Basically you are responsible for filling the order to the end customer in a timely manner, this business model is attractive because there is no start up cost and you don’t need a website.

The drop ship vendor usually has hundreds of products but everybody drop shipping  has access to the same exact products.

The other bad thing  about this business model is Amazon has really strict requirements on seller quality and on time to shipment dates.

The hardest part is finding a reliable vendor. If for any reason your distributor has a inventory problem and you can’t fulfill the products to the end customer Amazon will and has been known to ban your account.

A well-known blogger John Rampton got banned for not fulfilling orders in a timely manner. He lost a 7 figure business over night.

So guys while this business model is very easy to get into and it doesn’t have that much upfront cost it is extremely risky and it’s not really a sustainable business model.

 

Private Labeling

The next business model is private labeling your own goods. Now private labeling is the act of placing your own brand or label on a product that you produce yourself.

Basically the way it works is you first have to find a manufacturer to produce products for you in bulk and basically they will allow you to put your own brand on the product.

What a lot of people are doing right now is they are going to Ali Baba to find these manufacturers .

Once you produce your product then ship all of your goods to Amazon FBA and you take advantage of Amazon’s huge market place to sell your goods.

Because you are manufacturing and you are buying your own products in bulk you have to put more money upfront to actually get those products into Amazon’s warehouse first.

So the typical minimum  investment to do a private label product would be about $1000. Preferably $1 to $2,000 to purchase that initial inventory.

What is really nice about the business model is that you don’t need a website, you don’t need to generate your own traffic,because Amazon’s marketplace is getting you all the sales.

There are no inventory requirements because Amazon is housing all the inventory and the best part is that you are producing products with your own brand on it.

Overall this business model is a bit more challenging than the others,because it requires interaction with a vendor outside the country typically.

You will probably have to deal with Asian vendors where cultures are different but the huge positive is that you own your own brand,you own your own products and the margins are super high 66%.

Because Amazon’s marketplace is so large you can make a lot of money really quickly especially over the holidays.

The downside of private labeling on Amazon is that you are dependent on Amazon and it has really gotten competitive. If you have a successful  listing on Amazon you will probably get hijacked or piggybacked.

What this means is you might have other sellers trying to sell on your listing something that’s not the exact product. If you end up selling a popular product be ready to monitor your products like a hawk.

You also have to monitor your feedback for your products because Amazon can ban you at anytime in the event that you get a large amount of negative feedback.

 

Private Label Own Website

 

Now I saved the best business model for last which is basically selling private label products on your own website. It has the highest long term potential because you are in charge of everything.

You own the product because you are manufacturing your own products. You are driving traffic to your own store you are in control of your own traffic.

The downside of course is that you really need to know how to do all those things on your site. You can’t rely on Amazon to drive traffic for you.

You have to learn how to drive traffic yourself. You are in control, you can set pricing, you can never get banned by anyone. So in the long run this is the business model that I really favor in cane you want to start a long term business.

If you are willing to work hard, selling your own branded products on your own website is easily the best way to run an e-commerce business. This is a overview of the different e-commerce business models

Now it’s important to note there is nothing that excludes you from combining the different models, for example just because I run my own site doesn’t mean that I can’t sell on Amazon as well.

Just because I sell my own private label products does not mean I can’t dropship either

Take it from me I suggest you give all these business models a try to see which one fits your personality.

Keep in mind that selling private label products is the way to go in the long run if you want to create a long term business.

Leave me some comments about “What E-commerce model is best for you?”. Did it help you out? or  It was whack ? Tell me how you really feel.

Please share this post to your family friends and your social outlets that helps me a lot.  And leave your email address so I can keep you updated. Thanks and take care.

Is Swisscoin REALLY a FUCKIN Scam ? The Honest Truth

Swisscoin scam

Good morning to my fans and all my readers (bigcashers) I have received hundreds of comments and questions just in the last week about  Swisscoin.  Asking me , “Are they legit imate?”.  “Well here is the honest truth”.

It’s Darrell back at you today, a beautiful cool 68 degree sunny morning ,with a very important and serious share.

This  post titled “Is Swisscoin really a scam? The honest truth” should clear things up for my readers (big cashers) where I stand, that’s what we do here at  the cash blog we draw the line in the sand if it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck ………………………..it’s a  duck.     

If you are looking for more information about Swisscoin you are not alone. The Swisscoin website provides no information at all about their opportunity and consist of basically a signup page.

When a company does not publicly reveal information about how they operate their business it’s usually because they have something to hide.

Read these  helpful post  Ways to Avoid Online Scams and    Swagbucks Scam or NOT?

Swisscoin Products

Swisscoin offers no retail products. All products and services offered by swisscoin ( training packs ) are only available to be purchased by and from affiliates.

 

Swisscoin Compensation Plan

The Swisscoin compensation plan is based on investments in tokens as follows:

Trainee ( 25 Eur) – 200 tokens

Tester-50 ( 50 Eur) -500 tokens

Tester-100 (100 Eur) -1,000 tokens

Tester-250 (250 Eur)-2,500 tokens

Tester 500 (500 Eur)-5,000 tokens

Trader 1000 ( 1000 Eur)- 10,000 tokens

Crypto Trader ( 2500 Eur)-25,000 tokens

Crypto Maker (5000 Eur )-60,000 tokens

Crypto Broker (7500 Eur)-90,000 tokens

Crypto Manager (10,000 Eur)-120,000

Crypto Director (15,000 Eur)-200,000 tokens

These tokens are later converted into Swisscoins which are a digital currency developed by Swisscoins.

The value of a swisscoin is solely set and established by the owners of Swisscoin and Swisscoins are not available for purchase by the general public. Therefore Swisscoins have no real external value.

The Conclusion:

We have  seen it all before. Swisscoin  is another case of an MLM company attempting to capitalize on the allure of cryptocurrency though the company actually has nothing to do with digital currency at all.

Essentially affiliates are investing in a fake currency that does not exist outside of the Swisscoin ecosystem and worse the value of this fake currency is an arbitrary number set by the company.

Swisscoins are not traded on any crypto exchanges and cannot be used to purchase anything outside of the Swisscoin website.

In short, Swisscoin is a scheme designed to prey on  unsuspecting investors  and crypto newbies and and separate them from their hard earned money. As a former investor  always remember the old adage . “If it sounds too good to be true,it probably is”

I  personally won’t be investing in Swisscoin and I would wisely advise  my  readers (big cashers) who sent questions and comments to me to think about it long and hard before doing so. Let me know if you agree with “IS Swisscoin Really a Scam the honest truth.”

Until next time be sure to share all you have heard about Swisscoin in the comments section, and spread the word about the cash blog.  You my readers are the future and voice of this blog. Thanks and take care.

6 Fears Businesses Have about Social Media

social-media-1679307_1280

Good morning everyone it’s a chilly 51 degree chilly morning in Iowa. It’s Darrell back at you with a serious share today. Get ready y’all I think it’s gonna be a cold winter this year.

As most of you know 70% of our income here at  the cash blog is derived from our social media management service.

Yesterday I was cold calling business owners all afternoon and it really surprised me how many felt that a social media presence isn’t necessary.

With our social media management service  we help establish your brand presence in social media channels, but also tighten the relationship you have with existing customers ,while driving word of- mouth advertising as well as conversions.

So this post is titled “6 Fears Businesses Have about Social Media”. so  Let’s Roll.

Social media marketing is one of the greatest developments in the marketing world in the past decade.

Some companies have risen to unbelievable heights solely on their social media  acumen while others have refused to adopt any strategy at all.

1. They don’t understand how ” Social Media work”

Some business owners have convinced themselves that social media platforms are weird and  strange and it’s only for teenagers.

They haven’t taken a moment to learn how Facebook timelines work or  why Twitter is used for different types of interactions than LinkedIn.

Basically a few hours on any platform are all it takes for even a beginner user to grow accustomed to the basics and the basics are all you need to be effective.

Read this helpful post 31 Tips to Get more Facebook Likes !

 

2. They’re overwhelmed by the number of social media platforms.

Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Google +, Inform are just a handful of the most popular social media.

That number grows bigger everyday and to make things worse there are multiple ways for businesses to use every platform.

The number of options is overwhelming to a novice. The key is identifying which platforms will be your best option.

Listen to what small business owner  Ray Vandenberg said about us.

3. They don’t want to hire someone new.

Social media marketing is usually seen as a new wing of marketing, and in order to tackle it a business person would need to hire someone new who specializes in it.

However a full-time person is rarely necessary  for a social media marketing strategy, except for larger brands who might even need more people.

According to  social media examiner by tracking conversions you can connect a dollar value to your social media marketing efforts.

4. They don’t understand purpose.

The purpose of social media marketing is debatable but too many entrepreneurs are skeptical of it’s benefits simply due to how it’s been presented to them.

The reality is social media marketing isn’t some magical booth that will suddenly flood paying customers to your business.

It has a number of subtle benefits, such as increasing your visibility on the web and providing information to several-savvy customers, but most importantly ti can drive lots of people to your website.

5. They don’t want to change from traditional advertising and networking.

Some entrepreneurs are so familiar with traditional methods they refuse to change. The traditional and social media efforts can be done in balance to give you the best of both world’s.

 

6. They don’t see value.

The objective value of social media is hard to calculate  as a result it scares many businessmen away.

Since most of social media’s effects are indirect or hard to measure. As long as people continue using technology as a means of communication there will be a space for social media marketing.

If social media marketing is properly understood and implemented it can yield a positive ROI  (return on investment)  for any business. If you don’t have a social media marketing strategy, give it a shot , signing up for most platforms is free.

1.The $ 100 Startup ( Chris Guillebeau)

 

The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future

The $ 100 Startup is a book I really enjoyed reading. Chris Guillebeau shows how you can leverage your natural talent or long-loved hobby to build a thriving business.

He shows case studies of entrepreneurs who have built businesses earning more than $ 50,000 from budgets (often $ 100 or less)

2.The 4-Hour Work Week ( Tim Ferrris)

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

This book strongly rejects the traditional approach to life planning where people work their butt off: take very little time off from work over the years and save up money for retirement.

Tim talks about building a business that works for you and not a business that you work for (get it? )  It is about having a lifestyle where you are in control and not one where circumstances dictate your activities

Tim Ferris wrote the 4-Hour Work Week for those looking to maximize their productivity and freedom. The book is an excellent read so good it was on the New York Times bestseller list for years.

Many entrepreneurs consider Tim Ferris the ultimate business guru and he has a huge devoted following to prove it.

So what’s in the 4-hour work week:

It includes Tim Ferris story of having a lifestyle of $ 40,000 per year and 80 work hours per week to $ 40,000 per month and 4 hours per week.

There is a lot of practical advice and case studies in here that will help you rethink and reinvent how you should do business.

 

3.The Happiness of Pursuit (Chris Gillebeau)

The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life

This book is basically about finding purpose in life by working to accomplish big goals and seeking out adventure.

Chris Guillebeau decided to visit every country in the world. The people he profiles in the book chose a wide variety of quest,taking a vow of silence.

You can chose to pursue whatever quest happens to interest you. Check this book out it really is a fun read.

4.Starting an Online Businesss for Dummies  (Shannon Belew)

Starting an Online Business All-in-One For Dummies

Shannon Belew’s start-up classic is a great replacement for whatever text book you would use in an entrepreneurship class to prepare for business ownership.

The book offers insider information on a wide range of topics,covering all stages of the start-up process from raising money to motivating staff.

There are plenty golden nuggets of information truly a  very good read.

The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses
