I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Jul 25, 2007
Alot has changed since my Ask me about Ecommerce AMA from 2012, so I thought I'd do an updated AMA as some of the answers in the previous thread are now outdated. The online marketplace has shifted greatly in the past couple years. Some examples of what has changed:
- Google Shopping is now at the top of your search results, so ranking #1 for a specific term is not as valuable as before. I don't do anymore SEO.
- Big box stores like Amazon, Walmart and Target now dominate the results whereas before smaller niche stores did.
- Amazon is now the place to be in Ecommerce.
- A huge shift has happened from dropshipping to importing and branding.
