The Pain and Glory of Single Owner Online Business Startups

Despite warnings in the news that E-commerce sales are slowing down, there remains a steady army of creative, new online businesses ready for customers. Not everyone has a huge company with staffs for marketing, programming, and design supporting the endeavor.

Going it alone is part of the experience for some site owners.

Two women, sole owners of two new sites with big dreams, provide a perfect example of the joys and fears of selling products and services online. One is from the USA, the other from the UK. Both women have put their hearts and souls into their sites and are in the "now what?" stage.

Pegog.com, owned by Christina Jones, has approached Cre8asiteforums for help. She writes,

It's amazing how you can feel on top of the world one minute, and then really low the next. You then start thinking whether you have made the right decision

She's described what so many people feel, but smartly went charging after advice and support. Better to repair problems now and get to the bottom of potential roadblocks to sales.

Another discussion on marketing opportunities caught my eye, in How To Best Market A Great Interview I Got?. This site owner already owns several web sites, but has launched a new one. She has to start all over again, and this time, she's blessed with an interview so soon after the site's debut. How do you capitalize on that?

These two Cre8asiteforums threads help illustrate the challenges for small businesses who wish to sell online. Visit them for comfort or better yet, ideas for yourself.
