How My Student Tracey Sells Products In The United States From A Foreign Country

I often ask my readers what is holding them back from signing up for my full blown ecommerce course and one of the most common questions I get asked is…. My country doesn’t have a large market for what I want to sell. Does your class work outside of the United States? Can I make money if I live in a completely different country? Here’s the thing. When you sell into a country with a much smaller market, there tends to be much less competition as well. So what ends up happening is that you can often target...

Why Only Selling On EBay, Amazon And Etsy Is Like Gambling

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about why you should start your own store from complete scratch when there are marketplaces out there like Amazon, Etsy and EBay that can offer you instant sales. And it’s true. If you choose to sell a popular item on Ebay for example, chances are that you will be able to generate some revenue. And it’s also true that many people are making pretty decent money on platforms like Amazon and Etsy as well. So with that being said, why the heck would you ever want to own your own store? ...

Income Report: How My Blog Performed As A Business In The First Half Of 2014

Back in 2009 if you asked me whether I thought my blog could ever make more money than my day job, I would have said “Hell No!”. In fact, my Mom is still amazed that MyWifeQuitHerJob.com is able to make any money at all. Just the other day, I had a Skype chat with my mom and she was like… Mom: Let me get this straight. People sit at their computers, click on your ads and you make money? I still don’t understand how that works. So can you just sit at home all day...

2 Simple Tweaks That Doubled My Email List Signups And My Take On Single Vs Double Optin

Out of all the traffic sources that bring in revenue to MyWifeQuitHerJob.com, most of the money that I make is derived directly from my email list. Without my email list, I would not be selling very many copies of my ecommerce course. Without my email newsletter, I wouldn’t be converting nearly as many affiliate offers. And without email, I would not be receiving as much traffic as I currently receive today. Because email is such a crucial part of my blogging business, it’s important for me to maximize the size and quality of my email list. So today, I...

How We Grew Our Online Store In The First Half Of 2014

My wife just closed the books on the first half of 2014 and I’m happy to say that we are on track for another record year. Following a similar theme to last year, my wife and I have been focusing our efforts on further outsourcing our business. Our kids are getting older now and they have tons of activities which now require more and more of my wife’s time. As a result, we have invested some additional capital into a larger office space and we’ve taken on another employee. This now makes for a grand total of 2...

Ultimate Guide To Shipping Via The United States Postal Service USPS

When you first launch your online store, your number one expense is probably going to be shipping. And in the beginning, you’re not going to have the necessary shipping volume to negotiate attractive rates with FedEx or UPS. As a result, the United States Postal Service will likely be your most economical shipping option. While USPS is not the most reliable shipping option out there, their rates are very reasonable and the shipping speeds are relatively quick. I still remember the first time that I set foot inside the post office to ship our initial set of orders. ...

My Review Of The ConversionXL Conversion Course By Peep Laja

When it comes to increasing sales for your ecommerce store, there are really only 2 ways to proceed. One, you can increase the amount of targeted traffic to your store. Or two, you can increase the conversion rate of your existing visitors. But here’s the thing. Over the past couple of years, increasing the amount of targeted traffic to your website has been both difficult and expensive to do. Google’s search algorithm has been in a complete state of flux.
