Precious little can be worse than launching your online store with what you thought was the perfect product, try and market it the best you can, but then no one buys it. Making it this far in the e-commerce business is something to be proud of.
So don't get too disappointed, the fact that you are here looking for solutions to fix your problem is commendable. The Huffington Post reported that 90% of all online startup businesses fail in the first four months. Once you notice your products not selling in the first week or two make sure to do something about it.
Do not wait for several months stuck in limbo, hoping things will change. You need to be proactive and make the necessary changes to your operation, or it will be too late to remedy the situation.
What do music, word processors, and taxis all have in common? They are all moving toward business models based on access, rather than ownership—the fundamental principle behind the sharing economy. Rather than having a small group of people owning taxis and driving people around, apps like Uber and Grab enable everyone driving a car to pick up a passenger during their normal commutes.

One common problem for many blogs and websites is that they're getting plenty of traffic - but not enough of it is converting to sales. If that's something you're struggling with - you're not alone.
Believe me - I've been there too.

In this article, I'm going to show you what I did. Hopefully, these 12 design tweaks could be enough to start turning your blog into a money-making machine.

Now, it’d be understandable to lay the blame at the door of the weekend itself, but take a look at your desk. Is it a mess?

Running a business is an exercise in collaboration.
You have sales and marketing teams to push products and services out of the door. The IT guys ensure the business has the tech infrastructure to support what it does. The HR department manages and takes care of employees. And then we have the finance department to make sure every dollar is well-spent.
Different departments and responsibilities. But everyone works towards the same goal of providing value and generating profit - at least that’s how it should be.

Running a small business isn’t easy. Working towards your dreams isn’t simple. It takes effort and commitment and it can be easy to justify working on your business every waking minute of the day.
The problem is, if you keep pushing yourself, working longer and longer hours, you’ll find yourself becoming stressed, losing focus and suffering from burnout which can actually have an opposite effect on your small business than what you’d intended.
The key thing to remember is that you need time away from your business, time where you can relax, clear your mind and take care of yourself so that you can approach your business feeling refreshed and with a new perspective.
