There are close to 24 million eCommerce stores selling products on the internet around the world today (source: Internet Retailer). But surprisingly, only 650,000 stores are selling more than $1,000 annually. That means the whole majority of these stores (let's round up to 23 Million stores) are not generating meaningful revenue. I have built a store which is just among those 23 million, and I am still struggling to get traffic. This is how I got the idea of launching a startup that I call "The Experts" (temporary name).
We all heard that "the money is in the list" but very few of us really know how to build our list of prospects. People who are lazy like myself, would prefer to hire companies to build prospects lists for them. Despite the overwhelming number of courses on the subject, not everybody has the skills, and time to build an email list.
We, The Experts, will build email lists for our clients and save them the hassle of doing it themselves. There are some companies making good money from the same service but they are only targeting established businesses. The small shop owners are not served, which is money left on the table.
I want to communicate with our clients in the simplest way possible, without complicated terms like "lead generation" or "list building". I believe that with the right co-founders, my vision can come to reality.
So looking to gather a complete team to build the most awesome and profitable startup.
