Do you ever feel like your life could be better? Do you feel that there’s more to existence than just the daily grind and paycheck-to-paycheck living arrangement, but have no idea how to escape it? Maybe you’re a single parent, pastor or Christian looking for supplemental income. If so this post is for YOU!
I’m going talk about something that has become increasingly popular especially in recent years – digital storefronts.
Digital storefronts are an amazing way for anyone to create an additional source of income without having to leave home or dedicate too much time away from family or spiritual commitments!
It can help those with limited resources to make anywhere between $500-$1,000 monthly–all while creating something valuable that solves people’s needs. So let’s find out exactly what is a digital storefront and how it can make all the difference in your financial future by helping you make an extra $1,000 a month.
What is a Digital Storefront?
The dictionary defines a storefront as “the facade of a store”; “a room or set of rooms facing the street on the ground floor of a commercial building, typically used as a store.”
That is the traditional storefront definition. In our minds, we usually imagine a store with display windows and a storefront sign when we hear the word this word.
But today, you can find almost every store on Google.
Before you even go to that store or decide to buy or eat there, you have looked for them in Google first.
And here is where a digital storefront comes in.
It is not only a facade or a store.
It is where your prospective customer learns everything about your business. Oftentimes, even before they see your physical store.
In simple terms, a digital storefront is your website.
But to be more accurate, it is your business’ online presence.
Why? Well, because your business can have a website. But, if it’s not showing in the Google results, your website is not serving its purpose as an internet storefront.
How does a Digital Storefront Benefit a Business?
According to RevLocal:
- “75 percent of people who find a local search result useful will visit a store
- 90 percent of smartphone users search for location information
- 50 percent of mobile local searches end with a purchase
- 91 percent of consumers will turn to a competitor if your website isn’t optimized for mobile devices”
As a business owner, you’d want your customer’s first interaction with you to be seamless and impressive. Whether it’s online or offline.
After all, it’s the closest customer service experience you can give them! Moreso, if they haven’t visited your physical store and had an actual conversation with you.
Why is a Digital Storefront Important?
Think of it this way…
Imagine a brick and mortar Mexican restaurant along a busy, main street.
The restaurant owner would be willing to pay big money to have this location with heavy foot traffic.
But, how many of the people passing this street are actually looking for Mexican food?
Actually, the vast majority won’t even look in your window.
But, imagine if a Mexican restaurant can actually be on a street where people are going to look for Mexican food. Only Mexican food.
The restaurant owner would be willing to pay a lot more money!
That’s all a Google search really is…
When someone types in, Mexican Food in Austin Texas…
Google will display the top 3 Mexican restaurants in Austin, Texas..
And those are digital storefronts.
Think about it, they’re actually on a “main street” where people are only looking for Mexican restaurants in Austin, Texas!
Let me ask you… do you search Google whenever you’re looking for a restaurant, or a local service?
This is why Google search is the most valuable real estate of ANY city.
Imagine being a Digital Landlord on Google planet!
What are digital storefront examples?
Digital storefronts come in many forms. Some digital storefronts use an eCommerce platform like Shopify or WooCommerce to let visitors shop online, while others are digital marketplaces like Amazon and eBay that allow customers to buy from multiple vendors. Some of the well-known online storefronts are:
– Shopify: Shopify is a digital storefront platform that enables businesses to create their own online store. The company provides a website builder, digital payment solutions, and shipping options for merchants of all sizes.
– eBay: eBay is the world’s largest digital marketplace with more than 170 million buyers searching at any given time. It allows sellers to list items they want to sell and buyers to purchase those items from one digital storefront.
– Amazon: Amazon is one of the biggest digital storefronts in the world and offers an unparalleled range of products. It also includes digital services such as Kindle ebooks, digital music and video streaming, cloud storage, and more.
– Etsy: Etsy is a digital marketplace for handmade and vintage items. It provides digital storefronts for makers, artisans, and collectors to list their products online.
– Magento: Magento is an open source digital storefront platform that allows businesses to build websites with multiple features and integrations.
These modern storefronts show how digital stores can be used to provide customers with an online shopping experience. Customers can shop online and make purchases in a digital storefront right from their own device. As digital stores are becoming more popular, businesses should consider using digital storefronts to increase visibility and expand reach.
How can I make an extra $1,000 a month from digital storefronts? I don’t have a business
What does every business want?
More business! Which means more customers.
More customers means they need more leads.
A lead is a person who expresses interest in your product or service.
More leads equals more chances of getting customers to buy from your business.
That’s why businesses will pay a pretty penny to be in malls, or on main shopping strips.
Because more foot traffic equals more leads equals more potential sales.
Which is great FOR THEM…
But, it’s even better for the person who owns the mall right?
He pretty much sits and collects the checks each month.
You spend a few hours of your time creating your Digital Storefront. You find a local business owner, put his phone number on there and start sending him business.
So that’s STEP ONE: rent out digital storefronts.
Anytime you want to make an extra $1,000 a month, Or let’s be conservative and say even add just $500 a month to your income, you simply spend a few more hours building another Internet storefront. Put their phone number in and rent it to another tenant.
Sure, you’ll have the odd problem tenant once in a while.
But, overall, this is the fastest and easiest way I’ve personally seen to hit those $10K months. No need to sell every waking moment of your day.
The Mexican restaurant example we had earlier? That was only for example.
We don’t look for restaurant tenants. They don’t make enough per customer to happily pay us the big rent checks.
Why? A customer of a restaurant might pay $100.
But a customer of a fencing company might pay $10,000 for 1 job! So they only need 1 customer from our Digital Storefront to be very profitable.
What if I want to earn my way up to $10,000-$20,000 a month by renting out digital storefronts?
A conservative income from one storefront is $500 a month.
Do you want $5,000 a month? 10 tenants
Want $10,000? 20 Tenants.
Want $20,000? 40 Tenants.
That sounds great Cory, but can I afford that?
Well one storefront or one website costs about $200 a year to build and maintain.
Think about it, $500 revenue versus $200 per year cost of a website.
Another thing, you don’t have to build them all at once.
You can build one for $200, rent it out, and make an extra $1,000 a month.
Then use that revenue to build your next Internet storefront.
Imagine having several of those stacked on top of each other.
Each generating a revenue for you month after month.
But let me set this straight…
Leads and sales will not magically increase once you put up a digital storefront.
You must apply sales and marketing principles so that storefront will give a steady flow of leads.
