If at first you don't succeed....Setting up an online store for the third time.
I believe it was Bill Gates who said "Success is a lousy teacher". And Elon Musk said something similar, "that if you are not failing, you are not innovating enough". So when it comes to launching online retail stores, I'm in good company!
My first online store was artistically and functionally fantastic. At least I thought so. So fantastic was it, that it sold... erm... nothing, bar a few pity buys from friends and family. Second attempt I did through Etsy and eBay, with some moderate success. Third attempt, is what you are looking at!
There are many "get rich quick" articles, training courses and YouTube videos out there. So if that is what you are looking for, you are reading the wrong article... because, as it turns out, there are no "get rich quick" schemes. As it often said, if something is too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true. Instead, i'm going to be posting live updates from my third attempt at building a successful online store. Hopefully what I have learnt from the first two attempts will go into building something successful on the third attempt. Will it work? I have no idea! But here, August 2021, let us see what happens.
