Welcome to the fifth iteration of my Q&A on all things digital. Ask any question below and I’ll answer over the Sun-Mon. If I don’t know, I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction or state that I don’t know.
This Q&A will be open for 48 hours and I’ll be answering them intermittently throughout Sunday-Monday.
Questions asked tonight will be answered tomorrow when I get back to my computer. (Headed to the airport soon)
1. What would be your recommended marketing strategy for a new ecom product?
2. How should I go about the differentiation side of an ecom product.
3. In terms of manufacturing an ecom product, would it be wise to look into alibaba or local manufactuer?
I recently set up an ecommerce store (ran successful demand test with paid traffic) and am waiting for my product to be manufactured (expected to arrive late November). What should I be doing in the meantime? I assume trying to get organic traffic with social posts/blogs. But anything else I should prepare before I start running paid traffic again?
If you are trying to start an ecommerce brand, is it worth it to test product on Etsy/Amazon while you are working on getting a website setup?
Question from someone that emailed instead of posting publicly. Some details removed.
"I'm >50 with an income over 200k a year. Have full pension upon retirement. Want to get into e-commerce, as an investor, not so much as a manager.
Main goal passive income.
Is this possible? If so, what avenue would you take if you were in my shoes?"
For a content / review site, what's the best cost-effective way to scale up content writing. Any legs in fiverrs and online contractors to re-write and summarize amazon reviews for orginal content?
I recently quit my job in mortgage because I was making 100k but working 9 to 10 hours a day.
Currently I have about 30k saved up and would like to start an ecommerce brand. Should I look for another job or go straight into ecommerce? If the answer is get a job, what is the best way to find a high paying sales job? I have 4 years of sales experience.
How should I think about having categories and tags on my site?
It know each category and tag you set up on your WordPress site will have its own page. I've read you don't want to go overboard with tags because you could have a bunch of extra tag pages that might not be relevant. On my site, I started with a bunch of tags and have since removed them.
I was planning to have a category for each product category in my niche. How do you know if your categories are too specific or too broad? What is the primary long-term goal of establishing these categories?
I’m starting e-commerce store selling supplement product.
Getting product created and ready to distribute is main focus right now.
What are the highest ROI activities I can do right now with regards to the e-commerce site while I create the actual product?
Thanks for all you do grinner.
If you were starting today with nothing, what path would you take and what would be the first few steps? Affiliate? Ecom? Content? Niches?
