Essential Services for Your Online Business in 2018

January 24th, 2018

You can’t run an online store without paying for services. But which services do you get when you are just starting out? Many new online retailers make the mistake of diving in too quickly and then get discouraged immediately. It takes time to build a profitable business and here are 3 services you need to get started right!

Service 1. Access to Certified Wholesalers:
You can’t get a domain name or start paying for hosting until you know what you are going to sell. In order to figure out what you are going to sell, you need access to suppliers that you KNOW will work with you as an online store owner.

The quality of your product Dropshippers, Bulk Wholesalers and Distributors is extremely important for your online business. We can’t tell you how many horror stories we’ve heard from people who accidentally set up their business using fake suppliers. The damage these middlemen do to your business is catastrophic.

Since 1999 we’ve been the leading authority on AUTHENTICATING Wholesale suppliers. That means we have ran into tens of thousands of scam suppliers over the years. We know what they do, how much damage they cause and that’s why we take so much pride in what we do. Our job is making sure that Online Sellers have access to the same quality CERTIFIED Dropshippers and Bulk Suppliers that professional Retailers use every day. Our “Directory of Certified Wholesalers” is the ONLY Directory online that guarantees every listed Suppliers is a 100% Authentic Wholesaler. No Scam Suppliers. No Fake Suppliers. You’ll never have to worry about whether your wholesaler is real or fake ever again. All you have to do is pick what to sell…and start building a solid, retail business.

Service 2. Picking THE RIGHT Products To Sell
Having access to REAL wholesalers like what we offer here at WorldwideBrands.com is the best first step, but then many new sellers think that just because they have access means they can compete selling any product they want to. Unfortunately, selling online doesn’t work that way. You have to know what to sell and, just as important, what NOT to sell.

The Sell Niches Bundle is the highest rated guide (by our own Members!) we’ve seen. It shows you step by step how to research the current market online and determine the best products to start selling in your business. It also shows you how to research ANY product that way you can tell what products will be a good idea for your business and what products may not be so good.

When you’re just starting out and don’t have much (if any) money to spend on business expenses each month then you need to be VERY CAREFUL about what products you pick to sell. Some products are more expensive to sell than others. Some products are cheaper to sell and ideal for startups. You learn how to fully research any product and find the best ones to sell (that WILL fit your budget) in the Sell Niches Bundle. We can’t say enough good things about this Bundle so if you feel stuck or unsure if the products you are going to sell are a good idea, get the Bundle now while it’s on sale!

(Sales event is going on right now! If you don’t know what to sell we HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting the Sell Niches Bundle. Note, we don’t earn money recommending their Bundle. We recommend it because it has helped so many of our Members pick great products to sell.)

Service 3. Chris Malta’s Ebiz Workshop & Mentoring Program
How much would it be worth to your business to spend a day with an Ecommerce Millionaire? Someone you could ask ANY question to about online business, someone you could show your very own website to and get honest, helpful feedback on? Someone who’ll not only help you on 1 day…but for the rest of your life as a business mentor?? This is what you get with the Chris Malta Workshop and Mentoring Program…and our members that have already taken advantage of this find it to be invaluable to their online business!

Chris Malta is an actual online business Millionaire who is dedicating his time to helping online sellers get their business up and running the right way. He’s been doing this for years. Chris offers very limited space Workshops where he sits down and looks at YOUR website and helps you directly with feedback and advice on how to increase your sales. They are space limited so each person attending the workshop can get their questions answered in a more private setting.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 5

October 30th, 2017

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 5: “Slik The Free Trial Imp”

As we said in Day 4 of this series (you read Day 4, right?), the Halloween lore is rich with Imps. Malevolent, deceitful little creatures, these tricksters delight in misleading people, and in wreaking havoc and destruction wherever they can.

The ECommerce business is no exception; it’s full of Imps. Just search “ECommerce” in Google. You’d have a really hard time finding anything that does NOT lead directly to something controlled by an Imp!

In Day 4 we talked about Bogus The Product Choice Imp. Here in Day 5, you need to be warned about Slik The Free Trial Imp. In many ways, this Imp is even more dangerous than the last.

Slik The Free Trial Imp has found that it’s easy to prey upon unsuspecting EBiz Owners by playing off a natural weakness we humans have for the word “FREE”.

Any time we see “FREE”, we think ‘Oooohhh! Free!’ and we tend to jump on whatever the offer is. After all, what harm could there be in something that’s free??

Empires have fallen over things that are “free”. Remember the Trojan Horse? How much you wanna bet that ‘free’ gift was inspired by an Imp way back then? The forces of evil are not new; they’ve just found a new place to play when it comes to the ECommerce marketing space.

The scary, nefarious influence of Slik The Free Trial Imp can be found in many different offers in ECommerce. Free Web Site Trials, Free Webinars, Free Tools…it’s a long list, and it leads straight to the dreaded ECommerce Graveyard.

WHY?

Because ‘Free’ is NEVER ‘Free’. ‘Free’ ALWAYS leads to something else you’re told you need to BUY in order to make ‘Free’ actually WORK. Still, we humans flock to ‘Free’ like a gaggle of Trick-or-Treaters flock to a bucket of candy.

Since there are so many examples of this Imp-driven practice in ECommerce, we’re forced to stick with only two; listing them all would take forever. So we’ll stick to two that tie in with the Tricksters and Imps we’ve mentioned previously. Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed Day 1 and Bogus The Product Choice Imp Day 4 work well together with Slik The Free Trial Imp when it comes to FREE TRIAL ECOMMERCE SITES, and FAKE WHOLESALE SUPPLIERS.

1. WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH A FREE TRIAL ECOMMERCE SITE?

You’ve seen them all over the place. “Get your Free 14 Day Trial!”, “Need A Web Site? Get TRIX for 30 Days Free!”, and so on and so on, ad nauseum.

The problem is that not only do these places FULLY expect to make you DEPENDENT on their systems so that you HAVE to buy them after the Free Trial. They ALSO work very hard to make you believe that ECommerce is EASY, and that you’ll see RESULTS in that short period of time.

Here’s the kicker…they encourage you to quickly place all kinds of UNRELATED PRODUCTS on that Free Trial web site so that you can get it up and running quickly. After all, it’s a LIMITED Free Trial, right? If you want it up and running in that Free Trial period there is NO time to do proper Market Research in order to find a profitable, well-niched set of products that will sell well online.

SO…

Slik The Free Trial Imp gets you to put up an instant site-in-a-box, slap loads of unrelated and un-researched wholesale products on it, and when that DOESN’T work (which it never will) Slik The Free Trial Imp shows his true colors and starts CHARGING you for all kinds of expensive and ridiculous marketing tools that don’t work either.

Hey, these Imps don’t care that you won’t succeed. They just need to keep you bobbing for apples for as long as they possibly can, because each time you stick your head in the water to try to grab an apple, you PAY for it.

2. WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH FAKE WHOLESALERS?

Well, beside the obvious fact that they’re FAKE (major clue), Slik The Free Trial Imp loads up these ‘Free Trial’ Wholesale Directories with fakes that look real. We’ve talked about this, remember? Middlemen, no profit margins, etc.?

Then, when you can’t compete on price even if you COULD get your site or product listings seen in that short Free Trial period (which you won’t anyway), Slik The Free Trial Imp starts telling you that you have to PAY for info on more suppliers (which are also FAKE, and lead to more middlemen and no profit margins).

But it’s all okay to start heading down this dark and lonely path, because Slik The Free Trial Imp tells you, IT’S FREE.

It’s the chicken and the egg and the chicken. Round and round the barnyard we go, and this close to Halloween, there are all KINDS of bad things lurking in the barnyard at night!

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS?

As we said in Day 4, Imps can be banished by the use of certain wards, weapons and enchantments. But those are uncertain, unclean and dangerous things that we humans shouldn’t be messing with.

Your best defense against Slik the Free Trial Imp is to IGNORE him:

1. Forget the Free Trial web sites. That’s an Imp-inspired marketing tactic that will leave you with Goblin manure on your face and nothing in your candy bucket. Research the CAPABILITIES of the web platforms you consider selling on, not the HYPE.

2. You need to locate REAL wholesale sources that are NOT FAKE, and that provide tightly niched, well-rounded selections of wholesale products you can sell online. That’s the only way you’re actually going to earn real profits online.

How do you find these REAL, tightly focused suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory.

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Imps of all kinds. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check to make sure they don’t offer any misleading ‘Free Trials’.

This Halloween, make sure that you’re not making critical Imp-inspired mistakes in YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time selling LOTS of your tightly-niched products online.

If you want to make money online, you need the TREAT, not the Trick.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 4

October 27th, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 4: “Bogus The Product Choice Imp”

The Halloween lore is rich with Imps. Malevolent, deceitful little creatures, these tricksters delight in misleading people, and in wreaking havoc and destruction wherever they can. 

The ECommerce business is full of Imps. Just search “ECommerce” in Google. You’d have a really hard time finding anything that does NOT lead directly to something controlled by an Imp!

Bogus The Product Choice Imp has found himself a perfect place from which to wreak utter havoc on unsuspecting EBiz Owners. He finds unscrupulous EBiz marketers, whispers in their ears and causes them to tell you to put ALL KINDS of different products on your web site.

Bogus The Product Choice Imp works hand in hand with Kill-O-Tron The Automatic Product Feed, the Trickster we talked about in Day One of this series (you have read Day One, right?)

So Bogus The Product Choice Imp tells everyone to put any old set of products on their web sites, and Kill-O-Tron The Automatic Product Feed AUTOMATICALLY puts groups of unrelated products on people’s web sites. 

WHY IS THIS A PROBLEM?

The search engines, especially Google, are now looking at web sites AS A WHOLE. They want to see a web site that is a serious source of authority on ONE THING, and one thing only. That’s how successful web sites get ranked well. 

That means that ALL of the products and information on a web site MUST be related according to GOOGLE’s understanding of relevant and related keywords. It’s not enough that WE think products are related to each other somehow; GOOGLE must agree. This requires serious keyword research. 

Sites that carry unrelated products (according to Google’s opinion of their keywords) on their pages do NOT rank in the search engines, and are doomed to the dreaded ECommerce Graveyard, where ineffective web sites go to die.

To be successful, a web site must work within a tightly related product NICHE. 

Bogus The Product Choice Imp goes by thousands of different names across the internet, telling people to go ahead and just slap some products up on a site to see what sells. Any successful online retailer will tell you that this is utterly ridiculous and will never work, but unfortunately Bogus The Product Choice Imp, in his many forms and with his many names, easily outnumbers those who try to tell you the truth. 

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF?

According to legend (and Wikipedia!) Imps can be banished by the use of certain wards, weapons and enchantments. But don’t go messing with things supernatural…it’s a bad idea, especially around Halloween! You could get warts and stuff, or even worse. 

Your best defense against Bogus The Product Choice Imp is to IGNORE him. You need to locate REAL wholesale sources that provide tightly niched, well-rounded selections of wholesale products you can sell online. 

How do you find these REAL, tightly focused suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory. 

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Imps of all kinds. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check in the closets and under the beds to be sure no Imps are lurking nearby. 

This Halloween, make sure that you’re not making critical Imp-inspired mistakes in YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time selling LOTS of your tightly-niched products online.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 3

October 26th, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 3: “Tardi The Time Bandit”

When it comes to Time Bandits, most people think of the 1981 movie by that name. Time Bandits, however, are actually sneaky little creatures that steal time, and hoard it for themselves. They’re selfish, and don’t care whether their thievery harms people. The REAL Time Bandits (the creatures, not the movie) don’t actually appear anywhere in mythological lore. They don’t want people to know they exist. So, any time someone sees them, they jump back in time and avoid that encounter. This is how they remain completely hidden, ALMOST completely unknown, and still steal time.

Tardi The Time Bandit is one of these creatures. He’s found a very lucrative feeding ground for stealing incredible amounts of time. What is it? Yup, you guessed it. The ECommerce business.

Many of Tardi’s fellow Time Bandits hide in the shadows and cause business owners to procrastinate, become distracted and so on, then they steal that time for themselves.

Tardi The Time Bandit, however, has sneakily invented a much better way to steal incredible amounts of time from both EBiz owners AND their customers.

It’s called “Drop Shipping from China”.

This is something that’s been touted recently as a wonderful new EBiz delivery method that saves money because you’re buying at wholesale directly from China and having the products delivered directly to your customers FROM China. Lots of so-called EBiz Marketers and ECommerce sales platforms are talking about what a wonderful idea this is. There are more and more Apps and Tools becoming available that allow you to drop ship directly from China.

Now, normally, the (very few!) REPUTABLE EBiz ‘gurus’ and site platforms would NEVER consider this to be a good idea. In fact, anybody who knows anything about ECommerce would laugh in your face if you told them that Drop Shipping from China was a good idea.

WHY? Here are a few reasons:

1. When you’re Drop Shipping direct from China, you have no guarantee of the QUALITY of the products you get. Your customers will often end up with cheap, flimsy knock-off products that bear very little resemblance to what you THINK you sold them. Scary!

2. There’s no guarantee that the product you sell will be delivered AT ALL. Scarier!

3. If the product is a cheap knock off, doesn’t look or work as advertised or doesn’t even show up, YOU, the EBiz owner, are on the hook for the REFUND. There is NO legal recourse between your US-based business and a Chinese company. If (and often WHEN) the product is lousy or doesn’t show up, you have to refund the customer, and you CAN’T do anything to make sure you get your money back from the “supplier”. Even scarier!

4. It takes WEEKS for products to be delivered when Drop Shipping from China!! No online shopper in his or her right mind is going to be okay with waiting 8, 10, 15, 20, 30 days or more for delivery! This should be completely obvious to ANYBODY, but these “gurus” and EBiz Apps and platforms don’t TELL you how long delivery takes because they know you won’t USE this silly method. SCARIEST!

Reason #4 (delivery time) is Tardi the Time Bandit’s ultimate goal. He steals incredible amounts of time from EBiz owners and their customers this way, and loves every minute that he steals and hoards for himself.

Again, NORMALLY, nobody in their right mind would take those kinds of risks and alienate their customers that way. But Tardi The Time Bandit has done a very good job of hiding in the background, whispering in people’s ears, and making them believe this is a good idea.

Whatever you do, DON’T let this nasty little creature whisper in YOUR ear and make you believe that Drop Shipping from China is a good idea. It isn’t, and never will be.

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS?

First, NEVER let Tardi The Time Bandit know that you’ve learned about him here. He’ll just go back in time and delete this email from your Inbox before you get a chance to read it.

Second, NEVER allow anybody to tell you that Drop Shipping from China is a good idea, no matter WHAT Tardi The Time Bandit has told them to say to you.

You need to use Certified, Verified, REAL, responsible wholesale suppliers based here in the US. Real US-based wholesale suppliers sell top-quality products, will reimburse you for refunds for any reason, and will deliver QUICKLY to your ECommerce customers, which makes all the difference.

How do you find these REAL US-based suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory.

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Time Bandits. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check them with a stopwatch to be certain there are no Time Bandits lurking nearby.

This Halloween, make sure that nothing is stealing time, money and customers from YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time counting REAL profits for your EBiz.

If you want to make money online, you need the TREAT, not the Trick.
