I will address some common type questions I have had regarding this site:
Yes, my sales vs traffic is high, but that is what I do for a living - build successful sites and often sell them. For breast-pumps.org I average 1 sale for every 14.72 visitors. All of my traffic for breast-pumps.org is targeted and the products are niche products. I rarely check my traffic levels as traffic does not matter - the most important factor is how well you convert the traffic you *do* have.
I carrry inventory. The amount varies, but you will keep more of your sales if you always have the products available. Stock is not included in the sale. When I actively ran this site I tended to make 2 large purchases per month. Currently, I am not advertising the site, but still make orders through search engine results. For the 1 product that I am missing I drop ship it with another dealer or purchase it directly from a second dealer. My profit margins are not the same, but it is easy money just laying around....
I lost the one account because I recently moved from Chicago to Lincoln Nebraska. The move put me in a different region and the manufacturers policy dictated that my account had to be closed and I need to open a new account from my new region. Silly, huh? I have not bothered to do so because I am getting out of this site and just make purchases through the above mentioned dealers.
Getting the missing account is not difficult. I had 2 seperate accounts in case something goofy happened.
