Web store

Posted by forlogos on December 6, 2006

Last week me and AG came up with an idea to put up a web store.  Several days or weeks before, I told her that when I first started my undergrad that I wanted to put up a brick & mortar store and the web store will be just that: the web store of what I hope can be a brick & mortar store someday.  I don’t remember how the conversation went, but we did decide to put one up.

It takes some work to get a business set up and I’d like to do this right.  The hard parts will be going through the mumbo-jumbo of legalese, tax stuff, organization, contracts, finding suppliers, determining the target market, finding a web host, testing, and others.  The fun parts will be product testing, designing the website, fulfilling orders, etc…  I’m not sure how to market it, but forums, blogs, and search engine optimization will play the biggest parts.

I’m really excited for this and my mind has been all over the place.  I spent some time looking for some suppliers, went looking through web hosts, and even affiliate programs.  I think this whole thing should launch without it’s own web selling site first.  Or start selling stuff through online market places like ebay and amazon, and later develop a website.  I’m not sure.  I dunno.

I really do want to start it out small.  Thing is, I’m so busy with school and BJJ already, it’s going to take me a real long time to set things up and get things going.

I have thought of selling gis online too.
