eCommerce Website Developer

Become an eCommerce website developer to share information, or sell e-goods, hard good products or your services for profit.

One of the easiest ways to develop a small business online is to create and/or sell e-goods, also known as digital products.  If you can digitize it, you can sell it.

Selling e-books, digital photo collections, MP3s, clip art, e-sounds, cartoons/art/illustrations or software makes the internet the ideal venue.

When you sell e-goods, or "digital products," the Net becomes an automated distribution channel. No products to handle.   No boxes to pack.  No courier to ship.

You can also sell hard goods these days with the many POD (print-on-demand) companies that are available.  You don't have to actually buy, store, and ship products yourself.  You create your designs, upload them to your chosen POD company and then list them on sites like etsy, ebay, shopify, amazon, etc.

That's one of the new things I am doing with my store Holly Cottage Boutique.  It's a lot of fun creating the products, and I only pay for them when someone makes a purchase.

POD is a form of drop-shipping, but traditional drop-shipping is also easier than ever to set up. 

All of the latest available resources and opportunities make E-commerce the most efficient way to sell online, but only if you use the right approach and process. 

If you use the traditional standard method of:

  • decide on your business model (digital goods, POD, drop shipping, etc)
  • create a website to sell it.

Your chances of failure are high...

  • because of poor process.
  • because of a lack of traffic (visitors).

To help you gain an understanding of the big picture of e-commerce begin by watching this short video overview (1 min):

You may have a great product and a beautiful website but the "standard approach" used by the 97-98% of eCommerce website owners will fail.  Without targeted traffic (potential buyers), you'll get nowhere.

A lot of people try to solve their problem of lack of visitors by paying for advertising.  That's certainly an option, but it's also a good way to lose a lot of money fast, especially if you have no experience. 

In my opinion, one of the best approaches is to create a content rich website that you can then use to funnel your organic (free) traffic to your products.  Website Content comes before Traffic which comes before Preselling, which leads to Monetization (gathering the money). The way I learned is that C-T-P-M formula, and I feel it's a good business foundation.

Successful Ecommerce Website Developer Example

Here are some great case studies to show you how people have created excellent content to promote their eCommerce business online. One of them I'd like to draw particular emphasis to is Michael Boyter, from Wasilla, Alaska.

On his successful SBI! site (, Michael creates excellent content about genealogy and family autobiographies and then sells an e-book called Memorygrabber.   Michael also monetizes his high volume of targeted traffic using...

  • Google AdSense ads to contribute to his monthly earnings.

  • Affiliate income - By referring visitors to non-competing merchants with affiliate programs, profits are increased even more by earning commissions on sales that he doesn't even have to handle.

  • Joint ventures. Michael leverages his site's high traffic by selling related products created by others, merchants who are either offline or who are online but don't have the volume of traffic that SBI! and have built.
