I recently watched an interview that Aidan Booth did talking about what ecommerce is like these days. I learned a lot and I thought I would share it with you guys.
For those of you that haven't heard of Aidan, he is an ecommerce expert. Booth has made millions and millions of dollars online through his own ecom store and has also taught thousands of students how to do the same. Click here to learn more about Aidan Booth.
Booth says that he has found that peoples habits are changing and more and more people are buying online. Even when the world gets back to normal and we can leave our houses and go shopping in real stores again, everyone knows how easy it is to buy things online now.
Ecommerce Is The Future
People now know that they can buy everything online, this is a trend that was already growing before the pandemic and this is just giving it a boost. As Aidan stats ecommerce is growing and it’s the way of the future.
We are living in a different world right now, we are in lock down and people have been forced to live in an online world. It was the way the world was going anyway but it got accelerated. People have been trained now to get what we need from the internet.
80% Increase In Ecommerce Sales
There has been an 80% increase in ecommerce sales in a period of a month and a half. Even for me there are things I would have never planned to buy online but I do now and it’s so easy and convenient I’m probably not going to stop.
Kibo Code Eclipse
One of Aidan’s main things is teaching people how to build ecom businesses. In January 2020 he came out with a program called Kibo. The world went into lockdown in March 2020 and many people thought that Kibo students wouldn’t be making money.
But the opposite happened his students were having better results and quicker because so many people shifted to buying online. Many students were having 4 figure days and 6 figure months back to back. Kibo Code Eclipse will be released in January 2022 for the first time.
Kibo Code Students
Aidan says the 2020 group of students are getting so many sales and it’s not like anything that him and Steve have seen before. They have never seen the kind of results and the number of students that are getting these results before.
It seems like it doesn’t make sense because there are so many business that are going out of business so how could now be the time to start a new business? The big different here is that he teaches his students to start ecom business not the typical brick and mortar physical stores that are going under.
Do People Buy From Generic Unknown Ecommerce Stores?
Do people actually buy from generic ecommerce stores and not the big brands that everyone has already heard about? Aidan says they are seeing their student making 10s of 1000s of dollars a day on simple ecommerce stores. The stores that they build sell many different products in different categories so they are extra protected through diversification.
This allows people to catch the different trends that pop up because they are limited to one type of product. Know you might be thinking ok great I can just build one of these stores and do it myself. But these stores are built in a very specific way that works during this climate and they have been tested over and over to make sure they convert their visitors into buyers.
