morning I store a few customers in the chat, from their several conversations, they are ready to do Taobao, in the deliberations of office space and money supply of things, do not know why, I suddenly looked with pity their eyes. The girl of honest youth, I said silently in my heart: "sisters, go on the road and walk all the way.". I find that more and more people are joining Taobao’s army these days, and that’s what makes me wonder. Although I also help some shopkeepers do promotion operations, but I still do not recommend people to wade this muddy water Taobao. There isn’t any food here. "I’ll talk to everyone," he said.
read this text friends, some want to do is have some Taobao, Taobao is doing, some are left, I really did not do for these people from Taobao and Taobao feel lucky, perhaps, don’t come in and leave is really right. Ask: are you making friends with Taobao, do you really make money? I want you to know each other.
a lot of friends all know, now Tmall like Taobao, has been very difficult to do, is not easy to earn some poor brains their money, will also be Taobao Tmall in a variety of ways in various ways to eat, you sleep before midnight, hard, only the achievements of the Ali Empire prosperity. Taobao and the seller as cannon fodder, excellent youth waste in Taobao, pay and harvest, very sad. It is a great pity. If these energies and time are used to work or work, perhaps, a different kind of world belongs to you.
data show that in early 2014, nearly 7000 Tmall mall collapse, then Taobao officially denied, but a group of related data show that 90% of the Taobao business actually want to leave Taobao, in the end how the truth, we try to figure out.
To do Taobao
, why so many people fought desperate results backfired, then blame myself for not enough, actually not, your ability is very strong, only in the wrong place, there are a lot of people complaining, all this, are you asking for the boomerang, nobody forced you to Taobao. I write this article, is to advise you not to Taobao, if you do not listen to me, then you can try, you know how deep the water.
The vast majority of
1. did not see the nature and foundation of Taobao, and Taobao was deified. Small sellers were cannon fodder.
because of Taobao, so Ma Ma; because Ma Yun, so Taobao. Taobao was deified, Ma also deified, the vast majority of entrepreneurs to ma have personal worship, pony brother order, the absolute hot scene. Taobao overwhelming momentum, and eleven double – exaggerated sales figures, more let us worship.
, Taobao’s marketing campaign is also the first class in the country, and today, the person who started Taobao how much, how much money tomorrow, who will earn more money tomorrow?
