“That’s fantastic! Have you thought about selling those?”

We’ve all had a moment of inspiration for our own online store. Whether (like me) you took up a new hobby (crochet) and showed your project to a family member (my gran) or you stumbled across a cheap source for a certain product, the lure of online sales is difficult to ignore.

Ecommerce is a massive sector, with a projected value of $4.5 trillion by 2021. However, without the proper ecommerce processes in place it’s more than easy to fail before you even get close to selling your first product.

… data from Statista anticipates a 246.15% increase in worldwide ecommerce sales, from $1.3 trillion in 2014 to $4.5 trillion in 2021. That’s a nearly threefold lift in online revenue.” – Aaron OrendorffGlobal Ecommerce: Statistics and International Growth Trends

That’s why we here at Process Street have put together this ecommerce processes pack. These templates will provide you with detailed instructions on how to do everything from setting up an online store to listing products, designing a logo, and promoting your content.

How to Start an Online Store that Generates $3m in Annual Revenue

In this episode of Business Systems Explored, we speak to Jon Butt. Jon is the CEO of Fire Protection Online, an e-commerce store he built that generates $3m in annual revenue. He also runs marketingforowners.com, where he shows people how to build a successful, self-marketing company.

Want to spent less than an hour a week on your business?

It’s totally possible when you break down your business functions into simple processes, and automate anything that doesn’t need doing by a human.

With a bit of planning, you can start today

Learn these techniques from Jon Butt, who built a $3m annual revenue business with customers such as Cornell University, Canary Wharf, and Buckingham Palace.

After selling his first company in 2003, Jon made enough to comfortably retire… but then went on to accidentally start an outsourced e-commerce company that took off without much marketing needed to get it off the ground.

All the while, Jon was paying cash to the neighbors every week to borrow electricity and hosting his office in a grim building without a toilet…

Using teachings from The E-Myth, Jon scaled up faster than his suppliers could handle, all while on holiday in Greece.

Learn how to build every process in your business, then gradually remove yourself from them, outsourcing and automating as much as possible.
