I’m selling these cute slippers for extra income. Aren’t they nice? I sell them for only 50.00 (approximately more than $1 ) For now I sell them to friends and to office mates but I’m thinking of selling them online too. BUT the big question is, do I have enough time to manage that?
Selling online seems to be easy but it takes a lot of your time also, a friend of mine who sells clothes online (and is now her main source of income) invested a great deal of time and effort to become an established online seller.
Online marketing is trending and is big today but just like any undertaking you should not take it for granted. I believe that if you want to be successful in this kind of business marketing you should give your one hundred percent and must be very determined to make it. Learning to edit google profile, taking pictures of your items, putting them up online and costing is quite not easy as some people think.
I have tried online selling and marketing once, if you remember the lamps I posted here also, they are very saleable because they are nice and affordable but it did not last for long mainly because the lack of time to manage it. Actually, we received plenty of inquiries during the first few months that it was up online but since my husband and I are both working we weren’t able to really give enough time to it. We gave up on it eventually.
So now, I’ve learned my lesson, before I really make those cute slippers online, I’ll make sure I have the time, the knowledge and the determination to really make it big on the world wide web, competition is also tough out there and for people to notice your products you really have to stand out.
For the meantime, I’ll just make extra effort to sell it to friends and people we know, the extra income (even how small it is) is still an income and can help us in our financial needs. If I decide to sell further for sure I’m going to post it here.
