So far, it seems not.
Mark Host, a recent Fordham University graduate, launched www.nycxmas.com to sell Christmas trees online with $20,000 of his own savings and a $10,000 loan from his dad.
To date, he has sold only five trees.
But as an article about Mark in the 12/1/05 issue of the Daily News notes, most people don?t buy their tree until mid-December.
So it?s too early to say whether the business will work.
Now, many of the readers of this blog are Internet marketers, so let me ask you guys:
What advice do you have for Mark to make his Internet-based Xmas tree business a smash success?
And what can he do with the site to make money on the off season ? which for Xmas trees is every month of the year except December?
