July 17, 2019 / By Jacinth Question:
My wife and I are looking to open an online shop and dropship products. We are looking at various products right now to consider selling. We need some help in figuring out the various options in terms of website development/maintenance, setup of shopping carts/merchant account, other possible dropship product ideas. Any thoughts? We would like the shop to have a very profession feel so we wanted to do a little more than a basic eBay store or Yahoo store.

Through shopster, you will have access to over 700,000 products to place in your store...a word of advice...don't try to make a little mini mega store....there are too many "Big" players out there that will crush you.
create an online shop that has a specific niche,then market to that niche using direct mail, and other print advertising ...there are shops having great success doing this. Too many work from home types setting up mini-malls on the net...bad idea.
I have a shopster store and my target market is homeschool families, daycares, teachers, students, and parents of school age children.
I am able to use this store to not only sell educational material retail which I get from shopster wholesalers, but it allows me to gather an audience for my newsletter...which sells my own tutoring program.
If you can do something that has a heavy "service" element to it..then you have an advantage ...because if you have nothing else to add value to your project...you will have to compete on price only....not a good place to be at.

Decide what you desire to promote. If you desire to begin a web based retailer, you normally have already got an inspiration for a excellent product to promote. Keep in brain that designated matters are conducive to promoting good on-line, whilst different units could also be extra complicated to promote after they can not be regarded in man or woman. In any case, you must suppose passionately within the significance of your product - in any other case, it is going to be tough to hook up with purchasers.

Since you've never been in business before, I would strongly recommend that you talk to a business counselor before you do anything especially spend money. You have to determine whether you'll start a web based business or one with a store front. I'd call the local office of SCORE (go to http://www.score.org and input your zip code to find the chapter nearest you), the advice is FREE.
The counselor at SCORE will most likely advise you to write a business plan which is very good advice because it will force you to dig out all of the start up details and the costs of starting a beaded jewelry business and force you to also understand all of the aspects of this business including the customers you'll concentrate on (your market ) and how you'll go after them.
You'll need to register the business with your state controller's office and make sure that you have any city and county licenses if any are needed where you live. All of this will come out in a business plan.
