I’m not going to sugar coat it for you.
There are a lot of sites selling the dream of creating an eCommerce business – I’m sure you’ve seen them. I believe many of them are disingenuous about the challenges involved in placing all your bets on a single, highly competitive sales channel – and hardly any of these “experts” have created a truly sustainable business and brand.
I’m not saying that it’s impossible to reach 7 figures in revenue with an eCommerce only model, but in my experience, these are exceptional cases. Unless you have an extremely innovative product or brand story that manages to tap into the internet zeitgeist, you will have to explore multiple sales channels to build a scalable, long-term business. It takes slow and steady persistence over the long term to succeed.
7 Figures isn’t hype – it’s the bare minimum.
A million dollars sounds like a lot, but it’s really just the baseline for building a sustainable product-based business. If you’re serious about building a brand, this should be your first goal but not certainly not your last. We had to solve some tough problems to surpass the million dollar mark, and yet we still feel like we’re just getting started!
I value and appreciate your commitment to success.
I am here for you. My sole objective is to deliver as much value as possible to help you achieve your goals. It’s a privilege to share the entrepreneurial journey with you, so please reach out to me! I’d love to get to know you and promise to do everything I can to help you succeed.
