The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Business (USWCC) recently released a report on the state of Federal contracting with women-owned small businesses. This report, relying on data from 2008, is at chances with the U.S. Government’s success statements of meeting its goals (5 percent of Federal spending) mainly because in today’s Federal contracting system, any business may simply proclaim their women-owned position when posting their company’s information online without facing any scrutiny. 12 billion. To make issues worse (again, according to the USWCC), the shortfall is getting worse.
We don’t really know whose data is way better, the Federal Government, or the USWCC. We are well alert to USWCC’s concerns that the federal government does not confirm company self-certifications in its directories. That’s an old story, and a valid concern yet. No one, to our knowledge, has ever really tried to quantify the error rate.
On the other hand we are also alert to the problems that each contractor have in get together their small business focuses on. Although there are 75 thousand women-owned business authorized with the government, it is hard to find small-businesses, much less women-owned small-businesses that can provide, say, anatomist services to major aerospace firms. As a result, many Government companies have a difficult time finding experienced women-owned business that can satisfy the technical requirements of the work to be performed. Many of these companies frequently miss their small-business subcontracting targets. To read more of the USWCC report, click here.

Picking the right products and niche categories can be difficult. Successful subscription boxes tend to fall into a little handful of product categories: health and grooming, beauty, fashion, and food. Outside of these areas, few subscription companies thrive. Once you’ve identified who you are selling to and where, you need to think about what you would like to sell. Some businesses sell an individual white-label product, while others offer a full collection of niche-specific products. Another model depends on affiliate programs across a broad swath of categories. Before opening your store, you will need to determine the number and type of products.
Depending on your specific niche market, you may also need to judge production practices and regulations regarding what you can and can’t say (organic, for instance). But first, what’s ecommerce? Ecommerce is a broad term, but the simplest way to define it’s the exchange of services, and products online. Affiliate, physical, and digital products all fall under this purview, as do services of all kinds that involve an exchange of money online.
Our concentrate is on product-based businesses, so I’ll explain a few of the top models for you here. I’ll provide a few examples, so you can easily see what they look like used, too. Single-product-ecommerce businesses focus on an individual product, in varying levels potentially, offered to businesses or consumers.
