Is your product the ideal one for online store? Use our checklist to verify

To sell or not to sell? Is this product a profitable one or has a high risk of loss? Too many questions in your mind and unable to choose the right product? Use a check list!
Checklists are quite beneficial while weighing your options. Knowing the pros and cons of a product will always prevent losses in your online store. We have here a checklist for quick assessment of the products you are planning to sell online. This is based on the last few lessons about evaluating a product to be sold online. Assess each product (or a group; for eg., mobile phones) using this checklist to know whether it is an ‘ideal’ one or the one which needs to be avoided.
Mark the options for each of the aspect and evaluate the result according to the key mentioned at the end.

  25. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.arrow sling shot
