Hey everyone first time on here last two weeks trying to understand e commerce for first time. I am supposed to have a mentor of sort Edy who does not assist sorry truth

Therefore I am asking for websites review the understand that my approach is right or wrong

Any assistance would be of help as I have 12 days to maintain or move on to research another programme which is more expensive but true mentoring

Sorry to be of doom here but I spent 25 years of networking old fashioned way meet n Greet not website

I am learning but need help and gradually understanding

Hopefully might have some help here

Hi Neil - if you wish to sell products directly from your website, it's doable with WA's training.

Many people use a plugin called WooCommerce for exactly this purpose.

Jay has some fantastic training on Mastering WooCommerce:

Hi Neil, I am sorry to hear how you feel. I am sure that Edy will reply in due time. Unfortunately, it is hard to know when someone is away from the platform because they are sick or have something that takes priority over their business at the moment.

Therefore, on behalf of Edy, I would like to help.

If you would like feedback on your site to boost its site health, then I suggest that you go to your side bar menu, click on Websites - click on site feedback and then offer some feedback (Pay It Forward) to at least two other sites, and then request your own feedback.

However, if you would just like someone to look over your site, then feel free to click the little envelope icon and PM me your website link.

I can give you feedback and recommendations :)

You are welcome Neil and anytime you need a hand please let me know :) I just come out of surgery last week (which is why I said that Edy may have had something similar).

Anyway, I sincerely wish you the best :)

Ok maybe maybe but two weeks with our reply is shocking if not around

Therefore he should escalate to Kyle and Carson to take over his questions?

Only my opinion

Wealthy Affiliate (hence is the name) is primarily geared towards teaching affiliate marketing as opposed to ecommerce. May I ask why you've decided to go down the ecom route as opposed to affiliate marketing? It doesn't really make sense to divert from the training if you're new, so you may want to reconsider... That way you'll be able to get a lot more help from the community here.

Anyway, the website feedback thread is here:

I am going down affiliate marketing but I state it is e marketing commerce as that is my perception

We can dress it up as you wish with words but it is e commerce with marketing advertising ??

Hi Neil - nothing is being dressed up with words, affiliate marketing and e-commerce are 2 entirely different things.

E-commerce involves the sourcing & sales of products, covering all aspects including returns & refunds.

Affiliate marketing is the sole act of marketing products or services for third party companies.

Dale many thanks fir the exact definition

However my perception in this market was s to generate sales via websites - I am wrong being here

If this is the truth I have made a mistake

Because affiliate marketing whether 3rd party or 4th party is to generate income via sales by the way of your own website with products

I have been in sales since 18 yrs of age

If affiliate is not selling I have signed up incorrectly

As you state affiliate is marketing another person product to generate SALES!

Same game but a change of words to be precise

I know now what that am into but not the same thoughts as you

Sales Sales makes you income whatever you call e commerce

Hi Neil, yes you're right - affiliate marketing is about marketing, not selling. It is the person/company you market that does the selling... So if you are specifically looking to sell something, then yes affiliate marketing potentially may not be the correct route.

Final discussion is this is a sales environment however you dress it up

You are selling a service quite simple

You can call it any title or any definition of a subject what you wish

Creating stores is selling online

Clearing affiliate marketing selling other people’s products is selling

Either is selling products

Both do not hold inventory quite simple

Sorry my original discussion was assistance and help to my question of website feed back

As previous I understand sales as I have been part of the industry in variety of disguise whatever you wish to dress it up

Dale many thanks fir your input

Have a great weekend

Regards

Neil

If you are creating a store - then yes, you would need inventory if you plan on selling things.

The benefit of affiliate marketing, because you are only marketing things is that you don't need to hold inventory - as it is the seller that handles the products side of things.

Hope you have a great weekend too, thanks.
