eCom : among other things, for testing the market, affiliate pages are very well suited. However, I find the best margins among my own private labeled or manufactured products.
-> Finestfoodage.com : this online shop our team realized with getgrav.org for the investor Bernhard Bachna and the experienced delicatessen retailer Ingeborg Lorenz from Lorenz.delikat.essen. This is an interesting project that involves introducing an offline retailer to the online world.
-> FBM (Fulfillment by Merchant): I seized a great opportunity to launch my FBM career with no cash investment with 1000+ products of a friend, who is a manufacturer. This is done by dropshipping (dropshipping explained by Shopify).
-> FBA (FulFillment by Amazon): with PL (private label) products is always the goal for our affliate sites: in order to achieve more sales through prime offers, establish greater customer trust, and have faster deliveries and lower transportation costs.
-> an inhouse online shop, eBay and more other marketplaces, google shopping and facebook store are already on the starting blocks. I operate this multi-channel business using my “command base” Afterbuy.de : from just one place, you can handle various marketplaces, your warehousing, shipping and customer support.
To discuss this topic, I have another Meetup called: eCom.
