Starting an online store be it on eBay or any other marketplace or even your own website can be either exciting or frustrating or may be both. However, it doesn’t need to be like that. Here’s what they don’t tell you about starting an online store.
What They Don’t Tell You About Starting An Online Store
It doesn’t have to be something unique, out of the blue, extra ordinary, exclusive thing. I know you must be thinking “duh! If it’s not unique, then how would I succeed?”, right? Hear me out! It’s not wrong to have an exceptionally unique idea or product to conquer the world and if you have one, by all means go for it.
But, what I’m trying to say here is that if it’s inspired by someone or there’s already something out there selling in your niche, take it as a positive sign. If it’s working for them, it’s going to work for you too.
Tony Robbins beautifully quoted – “If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.”
There are more buyers online than there are stores selling. So, does that mean you won’t sell because there’s already someone selling the same item or in the same niche? Hell No Girl! It simply means that the idea is successful and YOU can add your own unique value to it to make it yours.
You have 2 sellers – 1) Seller A sells camera and copies everything from A to Z from his supplier’s profile while 2) Seller B revamps the description by adding his suggestions, tips and tricks on how to get the best value out of your camera and comparison with other brands online. Who would you choose to buy from? Someone whose not sure what they are selling or someone who knows what he’s doing?
The only way you can stand out from your competitors is by adding YOUR unique value to it. Your personality, knowledge and brand is what sets you apart. So, even if you are selling the same thing as the guy next door, but if you answer your queries promptly, go that extra mile to satisfy your customer or do whatever that sets you apart from them, you’ll always be successful.
