Ronald Dod says, “I feel like everything I have been writing lately has been “doom and gloom,” but I don’t think SEO, or SEM in general, is all negative. It doesn’t have to be this way.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, my fellow startups and small businesses in the eCommerce space. Here is why:

Everyone Started Somewhere

One of the first things you have to realize in this field is that everyone started somewhere. We all know that eCommerce is ridiculously hard and competitive. Just because you are small doesn’t mean every other business you see started as this behemoth that they are now.

Many of the large and older players that you see in the market have their fair share of battle scars and learning lessons. Unfortunately for you, you are most likely going to have to learn the same way they did as you come up through the ranks as a small business.

Or, you could try to learn from them and sidestep some of those mistakes. I highly recommend taking a good, hard look at your competitors and trying to learn from what they did. There is usually some content floating around the internet that you can use to see how they grew, lessons they learned, and more”.
