It might seem do you like everyone you know is making money online selling things. A simple search online and you’re going to get retargeted with videos on YouTube and elsewhere telling you how this guy (or girl) made six figures selling on Amazon…and they didn’t even graduate from high school. Recently, there’s a new keyword for the latest gimmick: connective ecommerce. Connective Ecommerce is the buzzword for a “we do everything for you, you do nothing” get rich quick scheme that works like many other scams in the past.
It’s the latest attempt to take advantage of this growing ecommerce store craze. It feeds off people who want to get into ecommerce but are new and are looking for an edge. Although we would love to believe that selling online can be de-risked and made super-easy, the truth is, like any business, it takes a lot of work and is hard.
Get Rich Quick Schemes in the 21st Century
It appears that the latest snake oil of the 21st century is this connected ecommerce platform. While it sounds great to hand over inventory management, website development, and even advertising to a third-party, while you rake in “the riches” 🦍🤝💪📈 💎🙌 the reality is that people who use this service are just sinking money into something that you have a little to no control over.
We have managed dozens of ecommerce websites and started a handful of them. Even with our knowledge not all of our websites have been successful (RIP www.rotorly.com). There are millions of ecommerce stores today hoping to make it big. What is it going to take for you to stand out? I don’t want to sound defeatist or to make this sound discouraging in anyway. Everybody at Win at Ecommerce makes their living helping people just like you make successful ecommerce stores. But not one of these engagements I call “easy”. When I look at things like connective ecommerce and Ecom babes it scares me as I know it will give this industry an even worse name. Before you go down that path, instead invest the time, effort, and energy it takes to learn what ecommerce is all about and be smart in what you do online. Remember, f it’s too good to be true, it usually is.
