misunderstanding two: good offline retailers will certainly do a good job on
successful entrepreneurs are spending a lot of time selling".
many people think, online and offline are retail, but the channels are different, as long as the goods are good, where all sell well. Here I despise the big difference between the two. Offline and online retailers have their own advantages and disadvantages, and if you don’t try your best, you may accomplish nothing. Offline retailing has the characteristics of physical commodity experience, immediate availability of commodities, through scene stimulation, temporary impulse buying, and clerks’ close service. Online retail has no store virtual shopping, has a large number of customer information, precision marketing, word-of-mouth marketing speed and breadth, without geographical, time and shelf space restrictions and other characteristics.

in the field of e-commerce practitioners and entrepreneurs in these years, continuous learning in practice and exploration, from my own mistakes and error correction and observation of other business success and failure, there are some insights and experience. And many electricity business, new business, or are preparing to start business friends to communicate, we found that there are still a number of errors in entrepreneurship. It is my good fortune to share my views and help you avoid detours.
many people mistakenly believe that traffic will bring sales. Yes, the electricity supplier has a famous saying, King is the Traffic, traffic is the basis of electricity providers, but do not ignore the importance of traffic quality. Sales = flow, X conversion rate, x unit price, traffic is only one factor. The conversion rate is defined as the percentage of customers who come to the site to arrive at the last order, and the unit price is the average consumption of the customer’s purchases from the site. Low mass flow conversion rate is low, and even if the customer orders can only receive gifts or just buy discount goods in depth, profit and value contribution is zero or even negative, the flow should be resolutely filtered out, don’t let the server resources, logistics and customer service. We’ve worked with some games and video sites, but the results aren’t ideal, because the users of these sites have a strong purpose, that is, playing games and watching videos, and not interested in doing anything else.
