The Star Newspaper, 9 December 2008
DESPITE the recession hitting the US, the online sales industry is still growing at 18% in 2008 according to statistics.
An even higher rate of growth is expected of the China online retail market this year.
The latest statistics shows China’s B2C and C2C online sales have increased 100% in 2008 to a whopping 100 billion Renmibi.
The business of the homegrown Internet marketing company eOneNet.com, will grow by 35% in 2008 and expected to grow further in 2009, according to Fione Tan, president and CEO of the company.
“Unlike traditional business where your market is mainly local, Internet business is a global business where we are able to get customers worldwide,” Tan added.
“More importantly, the start-up costs (as well as launching new products costs) are so low compared to traditional business that we can sell new products and launch new Internet projects from time to time, thereby creating multiple sources of income, with practically no (or very low) risks.”
According to Tan, the critical factor to online success is to learn from successful role models.
If you want to sell products online, you should learn from someone who has been highly successful in selling physical products.
If you want to sell services online, you get to learn from someone selling services successfully.
According to Tan, some of the common ways to make money online are by selling physical products, selling services, selling software and by managing a website and/or blogs on specific topics and then making money with different ways.
Once you have decided what to sell and completed a website or blog, the next challenge is to learn how to draw targeted traffic to your site or blog. According to Tan, a majority part of eOneNet.com’s business as well as her successful students’ websites are attributable to getting top rankings for keywords relating to what they are selling.
