Extra Income - Internet Marketing Network

Feb 26, 2008
As the internet continues to mature, so does the attitudes of individuals, people are now purchasing more and more on the internet. Many businesses exist that will deliver merchandise to almost any specific address, they specialize in shipping goods and products to any where in the world. This creates opportunities for selling just about anything to anybody at any address, any one who posses some know how can capitalize on this opportunity with just a little initiative and the willingness to do some work on the internet.

One of the biggest problems with a retail website, is you end up becoming the seller, shipper and buyer all at once. When you are offering products for sale on the internet you are opening the door to an international market and you will need to have enough inventories. If you have to constantly send out apologetic letters informing customers that their choice is either on back order or discontinued will not bring many repeat clients and will eventually go to another website.

Allot of drop-shippers work along with internet auction sellers who list their products on their auction website and then the wholesaler takes over all the shipping and handling of the product. For auction items there are risks to the seller, if a product is listed that does not sell, the seller is will still be responsible for any and all listing fees for advertising and putting the item up for auction.

In addition, once a product sells, the seller will be charged a value fee, this is a percentage of the total price at which the product is sold. Consequently, the seller must sell the product at a price that is higher than the unit cost plus advertising and listing costs before they earn any money. Selling directly off your own site may not produce as much business, but by the customer paying for handling and shipping, everything that is paid over the asking unit price is yours to keep.You could also choose to purchase small inventories of products you think would have high demand then list it on your site along with how many items are available. Being up front and honest with customers will make it simple for you to make money online.

Another good idea is to align yourself with good Affiliate Network Marketer who carry large inventory of goods who gives you permission to sell them on your site. When you receive an order, it would go directly to your wholesaler who would pack it and then ship it and will also deal with all the finances. You earn money based on the commissions from selling items, For example if you promote and advertise a VCR player on your website for $69.99 plus taxes, handling and shipping, when a customer purchases it and places an order once they make a payment and the wholesalers receive it the item is then shipped. If you purchased the VCR player from your wholesaler for $40, your commission paid to you would be the difference of $29, it is that simple to make money with affiliate marketing.
