E-commerce to sell products or services
mentioned in the website profit pattern of post online, profit model is roughly two kinds, one is to sell things to others, or advertising or joint programs, two is selling their own things. Site to profit, must sell what.
if you choose to sell their own things, in general, can be divided into two categories, selling products or services.
service is to start selling the advantage of cost is not high, no purchase, no inventory, as long as your personal or employees have proficiency in a particular line can begin.
usually need to sell products to start a certain amount of funds, always have goods to sell. If it is their own products, at least to invest in R & D and manufacturing products. If someone else’s products to sell, always want to purchase. So sell the product slightly higher threshold.

From the sale of an extension to one thousand, the need to increase the staff will not be linear growth. So sell products can be more stamina, the development of the future is limited.
where possible, selling services need to consider two points:
1) selling high-end services
if you have a very specialized skill, try to sell your time to the high-end market, rather than as a labor service personnel. This high-end service is not only the time to provide services, but also to sell all of your experience, college tuition, training, learning knowledge.
is like SEO services, targeting the high-end market is a general trend in SEO services.
2) to see if it is possible to turn the service into a product
it’s going to take a little brain. Sometimes it seems that only the skills needed to provide personal services, but in fact can be converted into products. For example, you are a fitness coach, in addition to the direct fitness, it is possible to sell fitness video, books,
