I am a seller of discount party supplies. Until this year, I had only been selling offline only to a handful of customers in my area in Philadelphia. My business was good. I was selling party supplies both retail and wholesale. The feedback about my products from customers were pretty good and encourage. I still keep in touch with a lot of my offline customers. Some of them have become my friends too. In spite of all these, I found real success in my business when I turned towards the internet for selling discount party supplies.
I actually encourage all business owners to start considering the internet as a viable source of new customers. The internet works irrespective of the kind of business you are in. It doesn’t work just for party supply business. You can sell anything online. You can reach out to a larger customer base with the help of the internet. Of course, I would not say that it is very easy. There is definitely some learning curve involved. But, once you get past that, you can really expand your business. You never know, you can even have a worldwide customer base with the help of the internet. That is what I found out with my party supply business.
