    need advice on product display site

    I will make a product display site on a certain subject.

    I have no time to sell myself and follow up and process payments etc... thats why i just plan it to be like a showcase site.

    but how can i make money out of it?

    if i tell sellers or manufacturers "put your product on my site for a fee" they wont do it

    even if it is free they will not take the time to do it

    so first i must put them up myself and make the site grow. may be then they will.

    Well, contrary to popular belief (or hope), most of the time making money doesn’t happen all by itself, it still requires time and dedication, especially in the beginning, before business starts taking off and basically runs on its own.

    That’s exactly how it works.

    Thanks for enlightening me on how life works, and from now on, based on your advice, when i want to make money, I will work. Thanks again. This is the first day of the rest of my new life....

    For your information, I have a news website on that same subject, which I put in may be 100000 hours so far, although my primary career is something else, and the major manufacturers keep sending me their press releases. Thats why I came up with the idea of this product display thing... Because there is no way I can dedicate time for an online store. It has to be something simpler and more efficient although I might make less money... Just need ideas on that...

    I need specific advice on the question I asked, not advice on how life works. Does anyone have any idea?

    Well, let's see.

    100,000 / 24 = 4166.66(r) (Days)

    4166.66(r) / 365 = 11.41

    So you've put 11.4 years (seems legit) of straight up work time into one project? I'm surprised it's not completed yet.

    OK, ketanco, if you know everything already why are you asking anyway? My advice still applies because it has everything to do with your question.

    A website doesn’t grow all by itself, especially in the beginning. If you want it to grow and become a fast-selling item you need to put some time and effort in it. If you don’t have any of these then money can buy them for sure (i. e. hire someone to do the work for you).

    What else do you need to know?

    There are plenty of sites on the internet that will handle everything in terms of ordering and paying you. You could consider becoming an affiliate for Amazon.com. That would allow you to add products directly from their site and earn a living for every sale that is made. They even have programs that will instantly create your site for you basically by adding all of the products you want on your website. When people visit your site and then purchase the products you list through Amazon, they will pay you for those sales and do all of the payment processing and shipping that needs done.

    You will never get good customer until you have enough traffic to your site. Reputation of the site is very important, if one customer satisfy with your product they will write good reviews about you, otherwise the review will be the negative one. Customer satisfaction is very important when you have such product display sites.
