Is it being your own boss, working from home, the kick of making sales or something else?

Being able to make money 24 / 7 / 365 is fantastic however I really enjoy testing new strategies to increase sales and conversion rates.

Yeah -- the lack of any real limit on how much money can be made next month and the month after that definitely has to be one of the most enjoyable aspects of selling online.

I enjoy the online-offline interaction, the way your typical relationship starts with selling something online to someone you've never met. Your most active customers continue buying things from you online, you start to recognize their name and email address and phone number as you process payment; without even realizing it, you learn their buying behavior and what types of items interest them. One day, you drop them a personal non-sales related email or pick up the phone and call them, and you put a voice to the name. That buyer-seller relationship continues to the point that eventually you run into your customer in-person at a conference or a local meetup group and put a face to the name/voice, and right off the bat, you have a built-in rapport. This further strengthens the relationship, and before you know it, this online selling relationship has morphed into an offline familiarity with your buyer. You may or not may become personal friends with them, but the fact that this all started online as strangers and now you are at the very least offline acquaintances who would wave hello to each other in passing is a pretty cool phenomenon.

I agree! One of the best parts of selling online is the privilege of meeting so many different people and with such diverse taste. I always consider it an honor to have repeat customers. All customers really, are a true privilege!
