Why Shop Online? …The Other 58 Cents

To read the posts leading up to this one click here

So I told you earlier that 42 cents out of every dollar spent online was spent on travel. So I knew I was in the right online business and it was paying off. I was having a blast working from home and having the time for my family I did not have before.  I was also thrilled that being involved in the travel business afforded me lots of “perks” such as lower rates and upgrades on hotel rooms and rental cars, not forgetting the commissions on all my own travel.

But then I got to thinking….What about the other 58 cents? The money that was spent on the internet that WASN’T spent on travel. You know the 58 cents that was spent on everything else like clothes, electronics, books, music, printer ink, school supplies, office supplies and all the rest. If I was smart, I knew I needed to find a way to benefit from that also.  So I did!  I did my due dilligence and found out how to do it and which company to do it with. Now I am able to profit from the whole dollar spent online…. Do you know just how powerful that is?

Online sales have exploded over the past 10 years.  November 2009 saw more money spent on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday. What does that tell you?  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the internet isn’t going anywhere and these numbers will double, triple, quadruple over the next 10 years or so. I truly believe I am in the right place this time.

There are 3 types of people……. Those making it happen, those watching it happen and those wondering “what happened?”  Which one are you?
