I just noticed this section I also noticed that there are very few E-Commerce journeys. To make a long story short; my (Chinese/American) wife and I have been selling Chinese Tea for several years now - mostly as a hobby. We have now decided to make it our main income and hopefully develop it to something sustainable. My wife have an MBA in business, so she will be running the financial aspect of the business - and she does that rather strict :sorry: Where we are now... We have products We have connections to get even more products We almost have our own online retail shop (done in a few days) We have pricing sorted out. We have had a lot of arguments We are full of optimism. Where we want to be... Finalize our online shop Find on/off-line resellers Develop our brand Set up our own warehouse in the US (late this year) We are currently making a profit of $2000 a month by selling to resellers in the US, we want to increase that! Our only expenses so far is $130 a month to Volusion for hosting our shop, and a slightly higher electricity bill as we have bought another freezer to store our Green and Oolong Tea's. So I guess we are on the right path. I will update this thread 2-3 times a week, or whenever time allow. As soon as our shop is ready to accept orders, I will set up several campaigns on FB, Adwords and several tier 2 PPC/CPC networks. This is my first ever attempt in online marketing, so I am really looking forward to it. Direct media buys is also something I will look in to. With our Volusion plan we also have an affiliate program set up, also something I am excited about. Feel free to ask or suggest if you have ideas that you think might help us. Wish us luck!
