The Search for Online Shopping Success

Every day, millions of people take to the Internet in hopes of experiencing Online Shopping Success. Their desire is to search for that certain something to buy that will make their day.

Every day, millions of Internet sellers also try their best to attract as many people as possible to THEIR site. They each think they have the answers to the searchers’ innermost desires, and can offer Online Shopping Success.

Yet, online shopping success is an elusive goal, and the search for it is a tiresome and un-fulfilling activity for most.

The Sellers get less than their hoped-for traffic and sales. They research and spend even more for online advertising or marketing programs or join some franchise or affiliate program that promises success.

This seldom works, because doing more of what doesn’t work – doesn’t work.

The Buyers have to struggle, first, with the fundamental Search process. Typing any particular term into Google or Yahoo or Bing or whomever they choose, usually returns so much unrelated chaff that it is actually painful trying to read through the results.

THEN, to make it even worse, many of the online stores seem to make it their mission to make shopping impossible, or at least very difficult.

How many times have you endured the Search process to actually find a site that carries the widget you have been pining for, only to discover that you can’t buy it online, but must call some 800-number and talk to some sales-guy — at 9 AM tomorrow!

Whatever happened to “I want it NOW!” ???

You should  try to at least make the search process a bit more endurable.

We think we have the way to make online shopping success a reality for the serious shoppers.

Maybe, link to pre-built searches that actually have that merchandise to offer. We partner with online merchants who are in the business of selling their goods, not impressing their webmaster buddies with the latest whiz-bang  effect.

We don’t offer you the thrill of the chase nor the opportunity to find an unknown boutique — We let you do that on your own.

We’re here to make it easy for serious shoppers to find what they want, buy it, and experience True Online Shopping Success.

Give us a look.

Saving Money on Postage

Our online business ships physical products to our customers around the world.

We spend plenty on postage.

If we simply took our packages to the Post Office, we’d get adequate service, and would pay full retail for all postage services.

We don’t do that.

Neither do we subscribe to a postage service that charges a monthly fee.

We ship using the eBay Shipping service for our eBay sales, and  the PayPal service for our other postage.

Now and then, we also use the USPS.com Click n Ship program.

Why?

Because we save money, getting our postage for Wholesale.

For example, we get a small discount on every “stamp”.

We also get free Delivery Confirmation for every Priority package, and only $0.17 along with other services. The regular price for DC is $0.85.

We also use as many of the USPS Priority shipping packaging as we can.

These cagey savings lowers our potential shipping charges by 10%. We can pass that on, and routinely do. Or we can actually make a penny or two on our really competitive products.

How do you save money on postage?

Making the Most of My Day

Most of my days are routine.

But some of them need extra efforts to make them end in success.

That means getting up at a regular and early time, getting the morning normals out of the way, and getting on with it.
