At times it’s a good idea to take a step back and see the big picture. So let’s step back from the daily grind for a minute and ask ourselves a simple and important question why sell online in the first place? Now if you’re a beginner and have yet to decide if now is the right time to dive in or experienced pro at the online retail game, please read on. Even if you have years under your belt but need to refocus, please read on and you just might find some inspiration here to take your game to the next level. Are you a brick and mortar retailer? You need to be online too even if your primary focus is still your physical store.

  • Now more than eve selling is easy- Old timers to internet retail may remember the days of waiting for a physical check or money order in the mail before you shipped that item. Really old timers may remember a time before pictures can you imagine that today?? Well those days are long gone. Now more than ever getting setup, posting and selling is really, really easy! Worried about not having the right equipment? Is your pc and digital camera really old? All you need these days is a smartphone to take photos and post to eBay or scan that barcode to post on Amazon. Sure you may want to invest a few bucks down the road when you are up and running for equipment but as long as you have a smartphone you are good to go. Still have a flip phone? We need to have a very long talk it’s time to upgrade NOW!
  • Startup costs are low- A lot of the time folks sit on the fence because they think they just don’t have the money to get into the business. Well this is not the case especially with Foxliquidation, we have a price point for every budget and the selection is diverse so no need to worry about settling for goods that you don’t want to sell.
  • Your business is open all the time and can ship anywhere- No need to worry about losing a sale because your store was not open. You are open 24/7 online and with marketplaces like eBays’s and Amazon’s global shipping options, you can now ship worldwide, that’s opening yourself up to a literal world of customers.
  • Room for growth- There is a lot of room for growth in online retail. E-commerce Sales increase year over year as do the number of venues to sell with Amazon, eBay, Poshmark, Walmart, Bonanza, Facebook, Pinterest, your own e-commerce website and many more. It’s totally up to you to find the site or group of sites that best suits your business and start selling. 
  • Freedom of choice- A lot of us these days have a friend or relative that drives for Uber or Lyft and a big reason for this is flexibility, the freedom to work when you want. There is a lot to be said about running your own business, being your own boss and working when you want to. In this case your setting your own schedule, have complete control over your future success and never stuck in traffic.
  • Economic Freedom and Security - There are very few people who got rich working a 9 to 5 job. With today’s fluid economy very few places offer the job security our parents enjoyed. If you have realistic expectations not looking to get rich quick, you can join the thousands of successful e-commerce entrepreneurs while providing financial freedom and security for your family. Keep that day job and start hustling online in your off hours, just pop that music on in the background to keep yourself pumped up and start listing away. You will be amazed by what you can achieve and enjoy your life with an alternative income source.
  • Plenty of room to niche- sometime in your life someone has probably said to you that you need to find your niche in life, well the same goes for selling online. The good thing is that there are many different niches to choose from selling online. Want to specialize in formal kids clothing or perhaps you want to market complete outfits to an exclusively plus size clientele? Your only limited by your imagination and when you find the right niche, something you are great at selling, brand it and reap some serious rewards.
  • Brick and Web not just Brick and Mortar- to the brick and mortar retailer having a presence online is just a no brainer. You have the inventory already why not sell to everyone with web access? Plus, it’s a great way to bring more attention to your physical location, with your greater online presence sell them online and then sell them even more when they walk into your store.
  • Add some skills to your Resume- Been doing the same job for 20 years or perhaps just starting out in the working world and want to beef up a stale or scrawny resume? Now take a moment to catalog all the skills that you have learned selling online. Photographing, editing, writing copy, pricing, packing and processing orders, customer service, advertising and maintaining social media, accounting and more. Don’t think these are marketable skills guess again a lot of these little extras skills you may have set you apart from the competition and may someday land you that dream job.
  • Tap into your inner artist- Are you living a double life? Accountant by day and Photographer by night, artist or writer looking for an outlet? Want to make your hobby profitable? Well you absolutely can while adding some experience to your resume. Get creative with your photography, maybe design an elaborate setting for your merchandise or perhaps get really creative with writing product descriptions, After all who doesn’t like a good story and a great picture is worth a million words.
