Should You Quit Your Job to Start an Online Shop?

One of the most common questions I get is around the competition in the online shop world. A lot of people, maybe even you, think that there are just too many other online shops in the eCommerce world and there is no way to stand out.

I’m here to tell you that’s false. In fact, I think we are heading into eCommerce 3.0 and this will be the biggest year ever for online shops.

How An Online Shop Is Different Than Other Businesses

In 2020, just like in 2019, I think an online shop is the fastest way for you to get to a million dollars in revenue. One of the main reasons I think this is because it’s one of the few business models that allows you to make money online 24/7 regardless of where you are or what you’re doing.

If you’ve got the Shopify app then you know that beautiful cha-ching sound that it makes each time you get a sale. That sound does not discriminate based on where you are or what you’re doing. Walking through Target… cha-ching. Laying on the beach during vacation… cha-ching.  

If you are a doctor, lawyer, or really any service business, then as soon as you go home there are no more sales. The customers only come when you are physically there. Not there, then no sales. That’s the beauty of having an eCommerce online shop; it’s always working for you.

 

The Power of Selling Physical Products With An Online Shop

People love buying physical products because they are tangible. You can touch them, squeeze them, and even gift them. It’s going to be easier to sell physical products versus digital products because of this. 

I have a friend who is a personal trainer and he told me about a woman that came in asking about personal training packages for sale. He told her that, for $300, she could get 3-months of personal training to help get to her goals. She told him it was too expensive.

The next week, can you guess who walks in the front door of the gym. Yup, that same woman. But she wasn’t coming back because she was now ready to buy. She was coming in to get advice on the supplements she had just spent OVER $300 on. You see, it was easy for her to rationalize the $300 purchase of a physical product but not on an intangible product or service.

 

You’re Next For a Million-Dollar Online Shop

The first step to creating your million-dollar online shop is believing you can build a million-dollar online shop. If you don’t think it’s possible, the chances that it actually happens are slim. If you never strive for more than $50,000, guess what, you’ll probably never make more than $50,000.

You need to set big goals but you have to be realistic about how long it’ll take to get there. If you think next month you’ll be the proud owner of a 6-figure online shop, then the chances are you’ll be disappointed. You need to start by making your first dollar, which is by far the hardest dollar to make. Then $100. Then $1,000. Then $10,000. The $100,000. 

If you wanted to lose 100 pounds, you’d first just try to lose 1 pound. Then 10 pounds. Building a million-dollar business is no different. Start small, celebrate your little victories, and keep moving forward. 

 

Remember, today there are more people buying products online than ever before. And tomorrow there will be even more. And guess what, they want to buy your products but if you never get out there, they’ll never have a chance.

Your online store is a 24/7 cash machine waiting for your permission to start taking people’s payments. Are you going to let it?

  • Thank you Bev and Alison!
    by help would be nice! from Canada

    Absolutely incredible podcast. Thank you ladies for being real, clear and motivating. So empowering. A true testimonial to “Because I Can!”

  • Scary
    by irenesq from United States

    Yup! Alison is scary...not in a bad way though. Its all in a good way. Why? Well, first of, I think Alison is not only an e-commerce expert but also has a psychic ability. I am only on the fifth episode of her podcast, and listening to it made me think like, “how does she know what I’m thinking?” All the fears and self doubts and negativity. She talks about life experiences that are relatable. Somehow whenever I listen to her, she connects with me like as if she was talking to me. I just love her and really blessed to have found her and be part of her clan. Thank you Alison!

  • Inspiring & Amazing
    by DoohikeyDesigns from United States

    Alison is the real deal! She’s real as she inspires you to reach your best life. She gives you glimpses into how she has made multi dollar million businesses. Alison was called to serve others to help others reach the dreams we have always wanted to achieve. She inspires to help us Rise Up to what God wants us to become! It just keeps getting better and better! Wow! Today’s episode in February is amazing! Literally I sell wholesale and know what it takes. But now I’m wanting to really create more retail sales and I have since being in your program! Loved the episode that you did of Puerto Rico and why you moved. I loved how you testified of how God works in our lives and if we trust him we can do anything. Thanks for being a light and a mentor to me. It just keeps getting better and better! Especially today about making offers! Sometimes we don’t always think of the little things it make offers daily to weekly. I know I can amp up my orders and I will be digging deep this week!

  • Clear advice to give you confidence
    by MintBillyCat from United Kingdom

    I love this podcast so much-it is my favourite I’ve found among all the business podcasts. It’s targeted at women who are at home with kids or in a job dreaming of running their own business and making more money. Alison is really relatable, clear and supportive in her advice & delivery and there are tons of good nuggets here for any aspiring or active mumpreneur.

  • Inspirational
    by Greenwichound from United Kingdom

    Some of things that Alison discusses in her podcast are really simple. But sometimes you need it laid out in these terms for it to just go in. And go in it does. Meaning you leave each episode full of confidence and aspiration with a check list of to do’s or things to try out. She shares information bombs that others in her position would never share (fear of giving away their secret sauce) and every step of the way you feel like she’s championing your specific journey. She is golden and this show should be in the library of everyone thinking or currently doing Ecommerce. Keep it up Alison! X

  • Fantastic, just Fantastic
    by 2shopornot from United States

    I just went back and caught up on all the podcasts and can I just say I should’ve done this a long time ago! The content is so clear, Alison brings in guests that are so willing to share.

  • Very optimistic and useful!
    by AJM.44 from United States

    I find these podcasts useful, filled with good tips backed by her experience. She’s also very optimistic and makes me feel like I can do it! Which is why I want to get started! Ok Alison, this question is for you - I want to start selling online in an effort to fund my college education! Obviously I don’t have a lot of time, and more than that, I don’t know where to start lol! Do I create a Shopify store? Do I start selling on someone else’s site (and whose?!)? Do I do a ClickFunnel thing?!

  • Life changing!
    by Future CEO MR from United States

    I bought your course last summer right in the middle of taking graduate courses to increase my salary lane as a teacher. No need to say that the increase in salary has not made any mayor changes. I always had the desire of doing an e-commerce business but did not know how to start. I still have not taken the time that I am supposed to dedicate to the course, however these podcasts had filled me with the courage I need to start doing it. Thank you Alison for your words of wisdom every Tuesday.

  • Episode 15
    by -akoboe from United States

    Loved this episode and how broken down and step by step the details were. Question for you: How do you decide on a business name and shop for an e-commerce store if you don’t have a niche? Or do you only recommend opening a store for those who do? In the beginning, you sold a lot of random things that didn’t relate to each other, so did you use third party selling websites to sell or did you start your own store and how do you do that without a specific product or niche?

  • Hopeful:)
    by Polka. Lover from United States

    So far I’m really excited about this podcast....and hoping it doesn’t all lead to what so many other podcasts I’ve listened to have, which is “I’ll tell you just enough to get you excited and start to believe you can do it, but to really start to change your life it’s time to pay for the membership/course and if you can’t afford it that’s just an excuse”. I’ve become a bit of a pessimist in the self-improvement journey while trying so hard to get started but not having much cash to do so. I’m that mom stuck living credit card payment to credit card payment which doesn’t exactly leave money to get started. I’m hoping this podcast is what I’ve been searching for to guide me on how to finally get something going that will bring hope and real change for my future. I love Allison and I have faith that she’s who can help me change my life!♥️

I can not tell you how much I feel like you are talking to me, yet I feel myself hearing you, as if I am the one talking. I have felt for a long time that I have something bigger than me I need to do to help people but like the lady in your podcast with the epi-pen, I’m kinda closer to that side of things right now. BUT I feel like I am on my way and I hear your passion for helping people. I can’t wait to listen to more of your podcasts and see where this will take me in the future.

  • Treasure Trove of Expert Goodness
    by linescrew from United States

    If you're looking to learn about building a successful online business, following your passion, and drive from a real person who practices what she preaches, this is the place! Alison is passionate about others successes- you can hear it in her voice. Against her norm of staying out of the spotlight and working behind the scenes Alison pushed past her fears of putting her face out there to follow her inner drive to teach others how she has been uber successful in several online businesses. She is still active in maintaining several online businesses and has taught me (and thousands more) how to build our own businesses. She is unselfish and wants success for all (and teaches how to do it without going into debt!). She gives so much to help others build their own dreams. Alison is the first mentor that I have found that doesn't hold back in sharing each piece to the complicated puzzle of successful business practices from idea to distribution to customer care. She doesn't promise magical overnight success- but gives you the keys you need and reminds you that your success depends on your dedication and hard work. I can't wait to see what her future episodes bring. Thanks Alison, for overdelivering yet again.

    by joness59 from United States

    I missed that you mentioned the link to your bundle at the beginning of the podcast. At the end you mentioned the site is becauseicanlife.com/bundle. This is an invalid URL. I spent time trying to figure out the link until I saw it posted in the notes of your podcast. My feedback is to make sure the info you provide is consistent. Other than that it was a real good podcast. Hope this was helpful. Stephen Jones (your old Boise neighbor)

She shares the highs and lows and gives us the tools we need to succeed. She is kind and welcoming and supports us even when we feel we are failing. The community she has created for us to find like minded people who want to make a difference is the best group I have ever been a part of. I love that she is always up dating her course that we have life long access. The fact that she takes the time to do FB lives a few times a week where she is open to all our questions is remarkable. I am grateful I found her. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out or a seasoned business owner, Alison offer something for all of us. Connie Leonard

    by seesnow99 from United States

    I’ve been following Alison for a while now. I bought into her 0-100K system. My store is up & running thanks to her & a lot of hard work. If you want to have an e-commerce business & have the best support team ever, look no further. I’ve done tons of webinars & online research. Nothing compares to what I have learned from Alison. Her online Facebook group is nothing short of phenomenal. You can post your struggle & ask for help. Five hours later, you come back to loads of encouraging posts from fellow “clanners” who have been there & they’re offering helpful advice. I have been in her course since May 2018 & have watched her course get better & better. That’s because she’s constantly adding to it. The best part about all of this is that Alison is genuine. She really wants to see her students succeed. This podcast is just another way to encourage us & all of you at the same time. I’ve met her in person more than once & her sincerity is more than evident. Sit back & enjoy the podcast! Better yet, take that jump & come join us in the Because I Can Clan!

    So happy Alison has launched this podcast.

    by Supreme Dragon Slayer 69 from United States

    Full Disclosure. I met Alison and her amazing family just a few years ago and in that time I have witnessed an incredibly humble person step into even more of her greatness. This is someone who chases Impact over Significance in everything she does. In a world where most “big marketing gurus” who just yell louder to be heard and rely mostly on manufacturing celebrity to become a house hold name... Alison has been actually walking the walk for decades. She is family focused. She is heart centered. But make no mistake. She is one of the most BRILLIANT Marketers and Business Builders in the world. She had proven herself time and time again on her multiple businesses in multiple niches. All. From. The. Ground. Up. So yes. I know her. Which makes me qualified to write this review bc if you do have an opportunity to ever meet her in real life, feel good knowing she is the same in real life as she is on this podcast. Dave

  • The real deal

Hey, welcome to today's podcast episode. Before we get started in today's topic, I have to tell you something about how amazing it is when we manifest what we want, how the universe tends to listen and give us what we want. Alright, so let me explain a little bit more. So one of the things one of the programs that I have is called the Next Level program. And one of the things that we offer is I go into store owners into their shops and give them some feedback. Now, the hot seat of the day was Orly of Laura and Lou. And the first thing that I asked her, I said, Orly, who is your avatar?

Do you have the name of the person that you sell to? And she said, Yes, it's Katie with an E. And then we continued on and I asked her about her email, and it was a great hot seat. But a couple days later, she sent me this message and it said, Allison have to share this little story with you on our hearts that you asked me about my avatar, and I said her name was Katie with and he and I set out a goal last week to create an email offer which we talked about. And I sent it and within one hour, I had the first customer use it and buy one get one free code and guess what her name was?

It was Katie with an E. Oh, my heart melted because this was such a huge deal for me. It was so unbelievable how the universe responded. Yes, yes. I love the Orly sent me this because it's true. Put the things out there that you want. I remember when I started my first online store, I put out into the world that I wanted to make $200 a day. That was all I wanted. And guess what it happened and then I set it higher. And then I said at higher instead of higher. Put the things you want out into the universe, write it down on a piece of paper, tape it to your wall, write it in your journal, because where you focus, that's where your attention goes. And then everything You do can align to the thing that you want. It's pretty cool how it works. And I'm not saying it's like fluffy, put it out there and then you don't do any work. No, you've got to do the work. Orly had to write those emails. And she got that customer. The exact same name of the avatar that she wanted. That is how it works, but the work in universe rewards. Okay, now let's dive in to today's topic. Have you ever wondered if there's space for you in the online world? I know it feels like everybody and their dog has a store online. Well, the other day I was looking at this graph from the US Department of Commerce. Yes, I know I'm a nerd. I look at graphs about how e-commerce online stores are doing. And in the last 10 years or so 2009 there was a 5.6% increase 2014 9.7 and we get to our high of 2000 19 with a 16% increase. Well, what was so cool about this graph is April of 2020. Just eight weeks into it, we have a hockey stick growth on this line graph of a 27% increase. Pretty cool. What this is saying is that now is the time. Now is the time that because e-commerce, online stores small business owners, people are turning to them crazy amounts. The graphs are showing the percentages are showing it about how much your online store is needed. And just imagine if April's growth. April's growth alone was 27%. Can you imagine what fourth-quarter holiday sells are going to be like?

More and more people are shopping online. It's kind of like the new online land rush of 2020. A friend of mine and I were speaking His name is Brian Bowman. And we were talking How we feel like this right now this eCom this online shop is the eCom 3.0 and how it just opened up a ton of space. And I get that ecommerce can feel scary and overwhelming. But in today's podcast, I want to show you why selling physical products, I think is the best way for you to get your first hundred K and even well beyond that to your million-dollar whatever your dream is. I did this presentation at my event about a year ago, and I was listening to it this morning and I wanted to share it with you here on the podcast to remind you about how much your products are needed about how you are needed. Last week I shared how Mariana sold a necklace to a customer and it changed their marriage potentially saving a marriage. You get to change the world with your products and in this presentation I talked about why people buy products why they will Want to buy from you and how you can learn to automate the system. Now on episode number 20, I interviewed a gal named Lydia and she learned automate her systems. And in March 2020, when she was in the hospital giving birth during a pandemic, she crossed the $7,000 mark for the month is because her systems were working, and she was able to focus on the birth with her husband by her side. Now, she messaged me a picture of her sweet new baby and herself and she said she was so grateful that she had learned to set up the systems so she could be making cells when life needed her focus. One more reason why I'm so passionate about teaching you how to build your own online store. Live life. Yes, the work needs to go in it. There are ways to help automate it so you can be there when you need to be alright, so we're gonna dig in to this episode of because I can live podcast

hey you're listening to the because I can live podcast where we believe we can decide our own income choose happiness kick in the teeth and never, ever stop. Why? Because we can. I'm your host Alison J. Prince and I went from being a junior high science teacher to building four online multi million dollar businesses with four kids at my feet each week I'm bringing you real conversations that have led me as well as other experts to step into our dream online business lifestyle so that you can get the answers you need to craft your because I can as well take that first step and commit now to your because I can live by downloading your free personal bundle at Allison j prince.com. forward slash bundle. I believe e commerce is the fastest way to get you to a million dollars, especially when you're first starting out. You literally Do not have to be there to collect someone's money, right? Yes, you have to do the work beforehand. But how many of you been in random places and heard the Ching go off on your phone? Right. We've got Bri at Target, walking around to chain to chain to chain, right, like just a target, and she's making money. We've got ginger on some random island with her kids. And she's like ching ching. You guys, this is the beauty of e commerce. This is the beauty of e commerce. Okay, so where are there this? We did have a sound, but I need to figure out how to get hooked up. Okay. If you are a doctor, a dentist, a nurse, you have to be there, right? If you don't show up, you don't have patients when you go home at night your patients go home the money stops. You're done with e commerce. It is Never, ever sleeps, ma. Okay, now let's talk about the fact that most people put a higher value on a physical product than they do like an E product or an informational type product. Right? And I wanted to break this down. Okay, so most people buy physical products because they're real. And they're tangible, right? I have a friend in the gym in this industry, he does personal trainings, had a gal come in and say, I want to get in shape. He's like, great. I've got this hundred dollar program for three months was $300 and we'll help you get in shape. We'll help you get your goals. She's like, I just I just can't afford it. Next week, she comes into his office with over $300 of vitamins. That she went and got at GNC and said, Hey, which one should I start taking first? You guys trainer could have gotten a much better results than those vitamins, right? But people put value in physical products, which is so good for us, because we get to sell it to them. Okay, they can touch them, use them, love them and get them in their hands relatively quick. Do you guys agree with that?

9:21
Yes. There we go.

9:25
Give the average person values these physical products. Okay, here's another thing. You can gift them. How do you feel when you give something to someone and they love it? It's an addicting feeling right? Yeah, it is. So this is my bridges. This Christmas. We gave her her first iPhone. We're the main parents that made her wait. You guys. She started crying with gratitude on Christmas morning. How do you Things that made me feel as a mom. Good, right? It made me say bye or something else. I want to do that again. We love, love that feeling so much. Can you guys think of a time where you bought something for someone and they have that reaction? Or heck when you bought it for yourself and had that reaction because you earned it? Okay, this is the power of physical products. Okay, how about some clan swag? You guys, when you put that shirt on, or that hoodie on softest thing ever. Did you feel that magical threads bleed into your body? Right, I have to say so called because I like was the FTC who come after me. I say anyway, like, it's just an analogy, okay. And you can conquer the world and it can invoke that strong, strong feeling. That's why I'm wearing one today. That's why I was wearing one yeah. because it lets me see my power. Okay? That is why people buy the feeling that you are giving them and you have the power to do this in your online stores. People love to buy, in fact, do you think you would agree that if you don't sell them these products, they're gonna buy it from someone else. Give me a or a say yes, yes. Okay. And I know you guys have seen your stuff or Tuesday pitches. I know when I look at your stores, I might some of your stuff. You have a way better product and a way better service. So Shouldn't they be buying it from you?

11:55
Saying say yes.

11:59
So why not be

12:02
So why not be the one that sells it to them? gives them a good feeling. And then they have good thoughts about you and your businesses. Okay. 15 years ago, I was hearing people were making money online, like big money, like a million dollars big money. And if it piques my curiosity, because, oh, that was a lot of money. I was fresh out of college, a school teacher and I was making like, I don't know, 50 cents an hour. So, do you guys ever feel like making a million seems like impossible? Yeah. Okay. So I started thinking about it. I had two ways to think about it. I'm like, number one, it's impossible. It's like the lottery, right? Or like one in every hundred people. Like, there's just, I'm never gonna get there. It's just impossible. Or the second way to think about it is If someone has done it before, then why can't I be the next person in line? Now I want to ask yourself which one are you? Are the one Are you the one that says it's impossible? Are you the one that says, I'm next?

Before you begin your million dollar journey, you darn well better think that you can you darn well better think that you are the next person. Because both thoughts are true, right? They're absolutely true. Why? Put your basic I can just make five figures and meet my e commerce business guys. That'll be your stage for as far as you go. But if you're like, I'm getting to the hundred, I'm getting to the million because I'm next in line. Say yes. If you believe you should be the next one. in line to make a million say yes. Yeah. Okay, so building 100,000 or a million dollar business, you guys may seem daunting or overwhelming. But if we think of it like losing 100 pounds that's a lot, right? And it's overwhelming and we just impossible. What if I told you your goal was to lose one pound? How many of you agree with me that one pound was a little bit more like achievable, right? Yeah. Say yes. Okay, what if I could help you lose that one pound? Maybe we just need to jump for a little bit. Right. Kate, do you feel like you'd be more motivated to lose that next pound because you had that success? Yeah. Okay. The same way comes when you're growing that million dollar business. It's not about building that million dollar business tomorrow. It's about making that first dollar on line, which is the hardest dollar to make. How many of you by the raise of hands has done that made your first dollar online? You guys look around you right now. You're sitting next to the I'm next millionaires.

By doing this, you are showing yourself that you really do deserve this. Now I need your help, though. If you've made at least $1 we must stand up for me so I can see. My

15:39
Yes. Where's Courtney?

15:44
Courtney, can you come up here and take pictures stay standing, stay standing. Stay standing if you've made over $5,000

So cool. Okay, more than 10,000

more than 50 more than 100

16:25
so awesome. Awesome.

16:32
Thank you pardon me for letting me just call you up quickly. Okay, so here's a grand bargain on a body shop. Most of his life doing manual labor. You guys blood sweat, tears went into fixing these cars. He'd go to work clock in, work hard go home clock out. He was one of the hardest workers I've ever known. But he went home the money stopped. You only got paid time. from someone else who said his pay. Less pick your pump started to grind grab would come into the warehouse. Two to three times a week he'd walk grandma in and the to look for the laffy taffy. And then grandpa would take grandma cetera or scenes. Usually the Willie chairs like a push around. She'd finished her treat, and then come

17:19
What do you sound Now listen,

17:22
I have to go find what I was selling and take it to him. He'd open it up, and he would inspect it. And then look directly at me and say, How much money did you make? That was pretty much our normal conversation for this specific example. I was like Grandpa, these cupcake liners just passed $20,000 he was looking at me with a straight face and say you are robbing people.

And then he would look back at me, and smirk his little smirk that he did to me. Just that holy crap. Alison luck.

18:13
Anybody buy these cupcake liners?

18:18
They were the best quality paper cupcake liners, guys, they didn't allow the grease to come through. They were the latest training colors on the market and the designs and the deals were smokin hot. Remember what I said earlier about people wanted to buy? why shouldn't they want to buy from me? Why shouldn't they get the best product on the market? Right? Why shouldn't I be the one that gave them the product when they start celebrating their child's first birthday? Or their child's first kiss? Where's Michaela?

19:00
I love her

19:04
that seat you back for your shoe comment yesterday cuz my shoes are way cooler

Why can I give them the best service? Throwing that Laffy Taffy surprise so that they could feel the love? Does Amazon or online Walmart ever show you love? No. Right? It was my obligation to be a part of their celebration. Am I right? I'm gonna ask that again. Am I right? And your products are worthy of that to you guys know if there is not chick fil a in heaven I am not going to go I heard some I agrees they serve chicken and french fries. Doesn't KFC Burger King McDonald's and Wendy's serve basically a potato and chicken. But what disservice it would be to me and the rest of the world. If they didn't give me their chicken, their waffle fries, their diet lemonade, and their chick fil a sauce. Right? Okay, now let's look at grandpa's upbringing. He had to have a physical customer come into a shop, drop off his car, discuss what they wanted, give him the bid, or have these all up here. Fix the car to three days later, call the customer explain the work and then click the payment. Okay, my online shop. I could sell 65,000 sets of cupcake liners in today. And I didn't have to swipe one person's credit card. I'd have to talk to one customer face to face and I have to describe How many cupcake liners are the best on the planet? You guys, let your systems do the hard work for you. My system was the door greeter to get people into the door, the lady at the counter the cash register, and the person on the floor answering the questions. Shopify and clickfunnels you guys, and I did all of this in my pajamas. Shopify or clickfunnels will do this work for you. And it's like 30 or $97 a month. That's way less than hiring all those workers.

Oh, that was so much fun.
