Growing and Knowing eCommerce

First let us check out investopedia to find out 

 What is an ecommerce business ? (As seen on site and Andrew B. credited fully.) 

What Is Electronic Commerce (e-commerce)?

Electronic commerce or e-commerce (sometimes written as eCommerce) is a business model that lets firms and individuals buy and sell things over the internet.

Understanding Electronic Commerce (e-commerce)

E-commerce has helped businesses establish a wider market presence by providing cheaper and more efficient distribution channels for their products or services. For example, the mass retailer Target has supplemented its brick-and-mortar presence with an online store that lets customers purchase everything from clothes to coffeemakers to toothpaste to action figures.


By contrast, Amazon launched its business with an e-commerce-based model of online sales and product delivery. Not to be outdone, individual sellers have increasingly engaged in e-commerce transactions via their own personal websites. Finally, digital marketplaces such as eBay or Etsy serve as exchanges where multitudes of buyers and sellers come together to conduct business.


The Advantages and Disadvantages of Electronic Commerce

E-commerce offers consumers the following advantages:


Convenience. E-commerce can occur 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Increased selection. Many stores offer a wider array of products online than they carry in their brick-and-mortar counterparts. And many stores that solely exist online may offer consumers exclusive inventory that is unavailable elsewhere.

E-commerce carries the following disadvantages:


Limited customer service. If you are shopping online for a computer, you cannot simply ask an employee to demonstrate a particular model's features in person. And although some websites let you chat online with a staff member, this is not a typical practice.

Lack of instant gratification. When you buy an item online, you must wait for it to be shipped to your home or office. However, retailers like Amazon make the waiting game a little bit less painful by offering same-day delivery as a premium option for select products.

Inability to touch products. Online images do not necessarily convey the whole story about an item, and so e-commerce purchases can be unsatisfying when the products received do not match consumer expectations. Case in point: an item of clothing may be made from shoddier fabric than its online image indicates.

Next: 

Growing your ecommerce business is hard.

Finding the right agency partner is even harder.

Why?

Because you’re constantly bombarded by guru “hacks,” misleading claims, and the same tactics dressed up in new buzzwords.

Maybe other agencies have failed you. Check out Facebook ad creative

Maybe you’re worn down from trying to maintain success at scale.

Or maybe, you’ve hit a new stage of opportunity — your first year of $1M-$5M in sales — and want to continue breaking through.

Three unique methods set their approach apart.

1. SCALE FASTER WITH A CONSOLIDATED CAMPAIGN STRUCTURE

Take full advantage of Facebook’s machine learning by combining the right Ad Sets with the right Daily Budgets enabled for scale. Eliminate wasted spend, reduce Learning Phase time, and minimize human error.

If you’re currently spending below target or constantly tinkering in Facebook Ads Manager, they can bring stability and efficiency.

consolidated campaign structure inside Facebook ads manager

2. FOCUS ON HIGH-IMPACT LEVERS: POSITIONING & NEW CUSTOMERS

The greatest unlock to your ad account will not come from audience adjustments or bid strategies. It comes from presenting your product in the most compelling way possible — new angles to sell to new customers.

If you’re stuck making manual changes or tired of small wins, then they can save you time and accelerate new growth.

3. INCREASE PROFIT THROUGH

PRODUCT-SPECIFIC TARGETS & LIFETIME VALUE

Single account ROAS targets hide the very thing your business needs: money in your pocket. To carve a path to net profit, they set success metrics by SKU and measure LTV with campaign cohorts (60-120 day payback windows).

If you’re running on a single account ROAS target, they will make you more money, period.

REALHER Definer Brow Pencils

REALHER
$ 16
INGREDIENTS

WHY IT’S REAL

This long-lasting, micro-tip pencil allows you to create individual-like hairs for a subtle or bold brow look. Its creamy wax-based formulation glides beautifully and naturally on skin. This waterproof pencil is stress-free to help you through any challenges you face in life.

REAL APPLICATION

For a subtle brow, start by creating soft, individual, hair-like strokes beginning towards the beginning of your brow. Move in light, upward motions, following your natural arch. Diffuse any harsh lines by using the spoolie side of your pencil.

For a bolder brow, apply with more pressure when drawing in your hairs. Next, fill in your brow with soft, even strokes to create more intensity. Going back with your spoolie, diffuse the brows slightly, to keep your bolder brow, but soften any harsh lines.

REAL TIPS

Create a starting point for even brows by drawing a soft line along the base of your natural arch. Create a stopping point for your brows by dotting where you want your brows to end before you fully commit to drawing them in.

REAL PAIRING

Pair with a light coat of "Eye Am Beautiful" mascara, and a nude hue of the REALHER lip gloss in your shade for a subtle, no make-up look.

The results of our colors may vary due to a number of factors including but not limited to: lighting, skin tone, screen resolution, etc.

Are Guns Safe?

 


This is a sponsored post.

The topic of guns is super controversial and most will either agree or not, but we can discuss it openly either way.  Are guns safe?  In my opinion if they are handled by a professional or someone with extensive training and kept locked up far away from children I would agree they are.  Depending on where you live they are even necessary specifically out in a more country or wilderness setting as they can save lives and provide a way to keep you safe.  There are so many instances where they are not safe like in the hands of young kids or really anyone who use them for show perhaps the appearance of looking bad or popular.   Unnecessary gun violence is not condoned or encouraged in any form.  


In a self defense moment sometimes a gun can cause more of a problem and some can jam or backfire so it is important to do your research and buy from reputable places as well as finding good accessories from  WTPH holsters where they have a wide range of holster and apparel to keep your gun secure.  


Having a gun permit is a must if you choose to open carry I would highly recommend being trained and keeping up on the renewal along with getting in a lot of practice.  Most of our local law enforcement would rather not use extreme force and still need to have a way to protect when absolutely needed.  In a world with so much negativity and so many people out to do harm it is always better to be safe and try our best to be kind.  Lets look at an article from Safewise that I found on Google search.  (credited as seen on site)


More Guns = More Gun Violence

The statistics on gun violence also apply on a broader scale. The more firearms there are in a country (whether for self-defense, concealed carry, or recreational use), the higher the incidence of gun violence. Even after controlling for other factors like income, crime levels, and demographics, many studies over the last decade confirm this conclusion.


The prevalence of guns in the community means incidents like robbery and other crimes are more likely to carry the risk of gun violence. In states that have “stand your ground” laws, Rand Corporation found even minor disagreements or physical altercations carried a greater risk of turning into violent crime. In short, gun ownership does not increase safety, and the prevalence of guns directly correlates with significantly greater risk of gun-related homicides and suicides.


While the facts surrounding the safety of having a gun in the home are clear, the choice to own a gun is more complicated for many homeowners. Be aware that the safest way to protect your home is to focus on buying the best home security system, and leave the firearms to law enforcement. If you do own guns, you can reduce the risk of unintentional shootings and other types of gun violence by storing your firearm in a gun safe or home safe.  <- Thank you for this information.

Smokey’s Christmas Adventure by D. L. Young

 Smokey’s Christmas Adventure by D. L. Young

Late at night on Christmas Eve, Smokey, a six-month-old kitten, looks at the brightly lit Christmas tree and decides to stay awake until Santa Claus arrives.


But when he curls up under the tree, he sees that there is no stocking with his name on it! He'll have to climb to the top of the tree, near the star, so that Santa will see him. As Smokey starts climbing, first he hears Alfie, an elf ornament who carries a tray of gingerbread. Alfie warns him that climbing the tree could be dangerous, but Smokey keeps going. All the way up, the Christmas ornaments tell him to be careful and worry whether he'll be safe. What will happen when Smokey gets to the top of the Christmas tree?


In this children's story, a mischievous kitten who wants to see Santa Claus climbs the family's Christmas tree and gets some advice along the way.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- A cute gift for little readers.  A kitten and some antics to make the holiday holly.

2020 World Series Champions: Los Angeles Dodgers

2020 World Series Champions: Los Angeles Dodgers
Released: December 8, 2020 • Available in US & Canada
Product SKU: 826663213966

Synopsis

The Los Angeles Dodgers™ are World Series® champions of 2020. On a quest for redemption after losing the World Series in 2017 and 2018, the Dodgers clinched their 2020 title in six games against the Tampa Bay Rays™ during a season – a year – so unique.


The Fall Classic™ pitted the two best teams of a condensed regular season and expanded Postseason™ at a neutral site, the new Globe Life Field™ in Arlington, Texas. The Dodgers and Rays would split the first four games in a back-and-forth affair. Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler were stellar for the Dodgers in Games 1 and 3, and the offense loaded up with go-ahead home runs from Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner. After a shocking loss in an all-time great Game 4, the Dodgers still needed two more wins to put to rest the ghosts of recent Postseason disappointments.

The Dodgers jumped to an early lead in Game 5 behind Mookie Betts and Willie Mays World Series MVP Corey Seager. The legendary southpaw Kershaw and a trio of relievers would keep the Rays at bay to set up the clinch in Game 6. The Dodgers would take a late lead this time behind the duo of Betts and Seager again, and a whole new generation of Dodgers fans would celebrate their own heroes and championship, the first for the franchise since 1988 when Kirk Gibson hit an improbable home run.


In five years at the helm, Manager Dave Roberts has now led the Dodgers to five consecutive NL™ West Division titles, three National League™ pennants, and one World Series title, returning the Commissioner’s Trophy™ to the franchise whose first championship was led by the iconic Jackie Robinson.
