What is it that sets successful eCommerce companies apart from the rest?

Take a look at any successful ecommerce business. What do they all have in common? They all adhere to strict habits that allow their online sales to soar.
It is so easy for us as humans to think to ourselves that other people/ companies have it easy. It is easy to simply look at other businesses and see the success and not the hard work that has to be put in on a daily basis. We can get wrapped up in what we see now, the fruits of other peoples labor over many years. If you want to have a successful ecommerce business like the ones you strive to be like, you have to dive deeper into the process and figure out what it is that these businesses do on a daily basis.
Successful ecommerce companies are so successful because they complete daily monotonous tasks. This is one of the secrets to owning a successful ecommerce business. If you can’t handle the monotony of some of the tasks that you will have to check off your list every day, you will never make it to the level you desire.
THE SUCCESS PYRAMID
There is something I like to call a success pyramid. This pyramid can be related to any business out there be it ecommerce or storefront. All businesses start at the bottom of the pyramid. Let’s say there are 100 businesses at the bottom for the first year of business.
After that first year of business, not all of them will advance to the second level of the pyramid. Only about 80 make it to the next level. During the second year, more businesses die-off due to a lack of patience.
After the second year, only 50 businesses remain. This is the year that is the hardest. The reason being that there is usually little reward and a lot of monotonous tasks that have to be completed on a daily basis. This is what a lot of people refer to as the “grind.” A lot of people can’t make it through the grind.
At the start of the fourth year, only 15 businesses remain. 15 businesses are left out of 100 to start with. For some businesses, they continue to fight through the monotony and the difficulties of ecommerce business. For others, they decide to pursue something else and give up.
Finally, at the beginning of year 5, there are only 3 businesses left. Remember there were 100 businesses at the beginning and now there are only 3 left after only 5 years. I don’t write this to scare you out of starting or continuing your ecommerce business. I write it to help you realize that as long as you push through the monotony, you can make it to the top of the pyramid where there is far less competition.
The competition is at the bottom and that is why a lot of people think that entrepreneurship or owning your own ecommerce business is so hard. It’s not that “hard” it simply takes time, patience, grit, determination, and an ability to keep pushing through without seeing an instant reward. Running a business is a marathon, there is no such thing as quick and easy money without work.
