Generating Revenue through E-Commerce

When most people think about making money online, e-commerce is one of the first things that they think of. After all, e-commerce generated $41.9 billion in the third quarter of 2012 alone, and continues to grow year after year.

Of course, much of those sales come from large retail outlets such as online stores for Macy's, Nordstrom, and Amazon.com . But much of it also comes from small businesses run by savvy entrepreneurs who manage retail empires from their homes.

So where does that leave you? Well, chances are you're not the CEO of a major department-store chain, so you're going to have to see what you can do on a slightly smaller level. E-commerce isn't necessarily easy, but if you can build up a client base, you can potentially do really well with it.
