Have you ever heard about people who own online businesses and run them from their own home? Well there are thousands, maybe even millions of people who make a full-time living from home using the internet. If you want to know how to start an online store without inventory I suggest that you keep reading what I have to say.
I've built dozens of affiliate websites with the intent to look like an online store and not just a review website. This is tough to do with the banners that most merchants give you to work with, and they just never ended up looking the way I wanted them to.
Even if you do end up getting a site to look the way you want, it will eventually become outdated and need updated. If you have multiple online stores this can become a very time-consuming job to search through your sites for broken links and products that are no longer being sold.
For years the only way to have an online store without inventory was to build affiliate websites and try to make it look like an online store with link cloaking and other techniques. In 2007 two men name Eric Busch and Stefan Everaet started developing a WordPress plugin that would soon change the way affiliates built their websites.
Eric is a web developer and Stefan is an internet marketer, and when they were creating this plugin they were keeping affiliate marketers in mind. You can now build online stores with thousands of products listed on your website within minutes of creating a site. The plugin allows you to customize products from different merchants so that you can have whatever you want listed on your site.
There is a monthly fee to use this innovative technology, and there is a bit of a learning curve if you're not a real tech savvy kind of person. However the owners have some pretty detailed training videos that are available in the members area for you to use.
You can build online stores with thousands of products in only minutes that will continue to make you money for years to come. This is really a set it and forget it kind of deal like I had only read about prior to using it. There really is no kind of maintenance once you configure the store how you want it.
Datafeedr is the name of the plugin that I'm talking about, and in my opinion it will change the way that affiliate marketers build their websites for years to come. If you are a believer in saving time by automating your every day tasks, I would imagine this plugin will be a good fit for you.
