Merchant Diaries: 1. Introduction - What It's Really Like
This is a series of posts about what life is like running an ecommerce store from an eCommerce Manager that built and is now running a 7-figure eCommerce business.
Hi and welcome!
So, if you're an internet marketer and you've it here to this series (even if you're not), I'm going to tell you that this series is not optimized based on Google searches, word count or to bring in any traffic.
I wanted to create this series as a way for Merchants or people thinking about getting into the role a glimpse into the life as an eCommerce Manager for a small-to-medium business.
Some posts may be long, some may be short, but they'll all be 100% real.
Before I got into the role of running an ecommerce site, like most, I spent my time on various blogs and courses - images of 7 figures through Insta ads in a week, working from beaches, and travelling while working less than 10 hours a week were all too common (still are).
Throw that out of the window. If you want to build anything meaningful, you need to put in the work up front. If "easy" is the expectation, you may not last through the hard times - and it will get hard, especially at the start. That may be why most won't last in it and why those course creators promising dreams of easy paydays are getting easy paydays.
Anyways, back on track. Check back every week, I'll be posting what life is like as a merchant (the ups and the downs) and hopefully help you on your journey as well.
