With its great keyword positioning, its high traffic and growing revenues, this website can be expanded in a few areas to further boost its sales. A few of the ideas currently being considered include continuing to add new products to the current mix, adding an affiliate program with complimentary online businesses and distributing a monthly newsletter to market & promote regularly to its established customer base.
Having cultivated long term relationships with its suppliers, the site has gained a competitive advantage as some of its suppliers have closed other drop ship accounts and/or are no longer accepting new retailers. It also has a government contract through 2012.
