Chances are, 2020 will absolutely blow previous records of online sales away. A couple of reasons for that happening are:
2020 has been the year of the layoff. In Europe, England has just announced another national lockdown while France, Germany, Belgium, and Ireland have shut down large portions of their societies. Meaning e-Commerce businesses are now in demand more than ever.
All business owners need to be on high alert, because as worldwide COVID-19 cases continue to climb, they could be ordered to shut down at a moment’s notice. Many assume that airlines were hit the hardest from the pandemic, but retail layoffs were about 40 times higher, and affected nearly 2 million people in the United States alone.
The reason for these mass retail layoffs is quite simple, people either can’t, or don’t want to shop in stores right now when they can shop online from the safety of their homes.

Mastering time management skills are essential for your business’ success. Time is a perishable commodity and, once lost, cannot be recovered. Whether it’s meeting a client to close a business deal or preparing a product launch, time is a key factor deciding if your business succeeds or fails.

Affiliate marketing can be described as outsourced marketing. It’s a process that involves you hiring a third party who is compensated for bringing business to you.
Affiliates will typically use a blogs, email newsletters, and videos to drive customers to your website; however, they only get paid when visitors convert into customers. Driving traffic to your site may be a plus, but conversions are what drive your business. This is what affiliate marketing is all about.
