In addition to the electronic aspects of
establishing the "e" in an eCommerce site, there is the Commerce cataloging side, which can be tedious depending
upon the product offerings, the number of items, discounts, shipping fees, sale tax, pick/pack/postings, handling returns,
Today, a large number of individuals and firms "cut their teeth" at eBay, the world's largest auction site. Many of the
products which entities sell are new retail items offered either at auction - often with a reserve - or at a "Buy Now" price.
Despite its perceived economy, not all products offered on eBay are a "buy." Some in fact, are higher than normal retail.
Nonetheless, eBay represents "the perfect economy" where supply and demand - at the exact moment of the sale - determine the
price. As such eBay has it's limitations.
The above discussion brings us to The Herd's
concept of Joint Venture:
Perhaps you have a product, or a small number of products, which fit the profile of the products which are most easily
sold on the Internet. Nonetheless, you are "maxed-out" having enough to handle with either your retail operations and/or
manufacturing the product(s). Further, you neither have the savvy, employ the savvy, nor care to add the savvy to the
payroll to undertake an eCommerce initiative.
Still, you want to add eCommerce as a revenue stream.
If the above describes you, and your product(s) are of interest to The Herd, we encourage your EXPLORING the possibility
of a Joint Venture, where in essence, The Herd establishes the "e" and you remain committed to the commerce. Revenue
and responsibilities would be split as negotiated and agreed upon via a Joint Venture Agreement which would keep each party
independent of the other.
Joint Venture might offer the best of both
the virtual and the bricks'n mortar world.
