# One or Multiple
Should you sell 1 type of product or mix up? My answer is mix up. Why? If you focus on 1 product, the possibility for people to be return customer less compare if you sell everything. Example: as gadget seller, you main focus will be gadget, you customer might buy their first phone with you, but they not going to change their phone once a week or once a month right? But they will keep changing the accessories maybe once a week, so this give more chance to have then as return customer if you sell accessories also instead of gadget only.
