COVID-19 Shifts Buying To eCommerce

The explosive shift to online shopping this year makes complete sense due to the global pandemic.

Now the numbers are out for everyone to see.

New data compiled from IBM’s U.S. Retail Index* shows that the global pandemic has accelerated the growth of eCommerce in 2020 by a whopping 20% – or a growth rate roughly equal to five ‘normal’ years.

That is an amazing number; and further proof that digital marketers are in the right place at the exact right time.

Here is more proof from other independent sources:

  • Consumers spent $211.5 billion during the second quarter on e-commerce, up 31.8% quarter over quarter, according to data published Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau – CNBC

2020: A Year Like No Other

This year has been a year of loss, delays, inconvenience and disbelief.

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned most of our lives upside down. Most of the disorder in our lives will be temporary, yet it seems like other things may change forever.

That includes how people buy goods.

If you need a little more information on each, you’ll find it below: 

Affiliate Marketing Success Models In Detail:

Path 1: Create Your Own Path

This path will show you how to choose a niche market and create your own website or blog even if you have no experience or zero technical knowledge.

This website will allow you to place affiliate links that will pay you for any referrals you make who buy the products you choose to promote. I have put together a free step-by-step guide on this website that anyone can successfully follow.

This training is set up to get you started in affiliate marketing in one short week (or shorter if you want). The lessons are divided into seven easy-to-complete daily tasks that will keep you on track and motivated to follow it until you’re up and running.

You will learn how to choose a good market to enter and domain name, how to build your own website, how to generate traffic to your site and how to start making money with it.

This path takes very little money to set up (just a hosting account and domain name). If you follow my lessons, you can be making money within the first 30 days from when you get started.

Path 2: Join With Me To Promote High Ticket Offers

Internet Profits Partners is a high-end training program that will teach you how to create a real business online selling high ticket products and services using an award-winning funnel that will enable you to make up to $2,500 commissions per sale.

I’m a member myself and if you join me, I will personally make myself available to help you along and share with you everything I know in my decade plus as a full time digital marketer.

It is NOT an multi-level marketing model. I despise MLM models and never promote them on this website or anywhere else.

As a member, you will have the opportunity to introduce others into the program and be paid handsomely for it, but introducing others into the program is NOT required.

This program is about building a profitable business online that goes way beyond the IPP itself.

The Internet Profits Partners Is Perfect For:

  • Beginners who want to learn how to build an online business the right way from the very start

Path 4: But A Done-For-You Business

Reseller websites are perfect for you if you want a turnkey internet marketing business that you can profit from immediately, even if you have no previous online marketing experience.

A reseller website is a completely done-for-you website that allows you to make money by selling products and services (you decide which niche market) directly from your new website. Each site comes set up with high-quality outsourced vendors who will fulfill your orders and perform the services that you sell. You don’t even need a hosting account since its included.

This is the shortest path to making money online since it’s literally like buying fully-operational online shop. It does require an upfront investment however, which will reward you for the time you save setting up an online business yourself.

Conclusion:

A global pandemic might make this seem like the very worst time to start or build your own online business.

I believe its the best time to start or scale one.

It’s your chance to take your fate and your earnings future into your own hands. You’ll never have to worry ever again about being let go by a company impacted by unforeseen circumstances. I can show you how to create and diversify your online business, using several different income streams, to make your earnings disaster proof.

But you have to get started.
