Lately, many of my contacts in Facebook are publishing photos of their business. Well, while sometimes it gets a bit annoying since they keep on sharing the photos of what they sell over and over again, it is also an opportunity for us, their contacts to see what they have to offer again. (That is such a long sentence, whew!)
Since I have been lurking in Facebook for longer times lately, it got me thinking. I really wonder how much do these people spend as capital for their online-based businesses. Is it that big? Or how small it is? Where do they get their supplies? Which is more salable: food, clothing, toys, or accessories? What do they use to track their stocks, is it something like pc america? If they import, do they have contacts abroad and in the customs office?
I have so many questions because I am inspired to re-open my online store. Yes, I have one too but it has been inactive for almost two years now. I sell mostly gadgets and diapers but I haven’t had time to take care of it so I stopped. But my girls are getting bigger now and their needs are expanding too. I feel like I have to do something I help my husband in whatever way I can. Plus I think selling is something I am good at.
What do you think? Do you have your own online shop? Care to share more about it?
