    Hi man, you have plenty of journeys here you can learn from. It sounds like your'e just starting to learn how to build a dropshipping business. I suggest you to learn from this forum and keep going with your journey, the best way to learn is just jumping into the water.
    Good luck!

    I would definitely go with a .com, the name really isn't that important. Make it catchy and easy to figure out which niche it's in. Like: lotsatech.com (available)

    Good luck buddy

    I saw that you used aliexpress theme for your website. Its OK for someone who hasn't been on aliexpress.com yet, but for plenty of ppl online, its instant reminder on aliexpress.com.
    But on the other hand, it can be very lucrative I guess, if you do your targeting good.

    Anyway, best of luck! Will follow this thread

    Right... :D

    You want to target USA and drive prices up about 1500%..:D:D I don't want to burst your bubble but you will fail!

    And you don't even know your niche yet.. It doesn't matter, there will be no niches where you can drive up prices 1500%!

    As you are targeting USA you will have to go with a domain they are most used to, so .com, .net, .org. Any weird looking gtld will not speak to the general public.

    $100 dollars for a niche you don't even know yet with the purpose to drive prices that far will be just a waste of time and money!

    $1000,- per month.. I can already tell you, it will NEVER happen with your way of thinking.

    Newbies say good luck, I will not though, I already know you will fail a 110%!

    Also, basic shopify costs $29,- a month, you will need Oberlo managing AE so that's another $29,90,- a month so that will be a $58,90,- so leaving you with $41,10,- of the hundred bucks you wanted to invest.

    As you are targeting USA your main payment gateway will be PayPal(do you have an account already?), did I already tell you that they will freeze your income for 21 days so you will have to pay for orders yourself in the beginning?

    And where will you get your traffic from? You think with the little money you have left you can at the most advertise one time people will come storming your niche website (which you don't even know which you want to go with?)

    I can go on but you probably already think I am an huge asshole but I am telling you this not to burn you but I have seen many people who failed because they came unprepared and you my friend are unprepared!

    My advice if you want it or not, go read BHW some more, do some more research, make notes, learn and save till you got a bit more money to spend. "Yeah but I read this success story about this one guy.." yeah, well, about only 0,1% will succeed starting with nothing and strike gold but for the other 99,9 % it will mean working hard, experimenting, testing, spending and losing money before you will reach that $1000,- and beyond per month.

    I just read the rest "fashionintech.com" so what will you be selling, fashion for military personnel, developers and other techpeople so they can look a bit fashion like? That name makes no sense at all.

    I checked out your website and can already tell its not shopify it's the plugin from Yaros and your site now looks the same like everybody else who has that plugin.

    Checked the site and see this.

    A direct copy from AE. At least delete the "Tariff free"(is this even English?) and edit the photo and description!

    As I said my friend, many errors.

    Yeah, 100% correct! Even your name is so funny bro.. I'm sorry but fashion tech? WTF was you thinking? I think it may get some success in India but you have to build a brand my friend. I wouldn't trust your store, it's like any cloned site.

    Nobody is gonna tell you a great niche! If anyone knows a niche they would use it for them self or atleast ask money for it.

    If you change the domain. Use a .99 cents coupon on a new registar.
    The name is stupid enough to work.

    My 1st thought was its sucks.
    My 2 was fashion tech, well what the hell is it?
    Boom, got me interested.

    Hey man, don't listen to the naysayers. How many times have you heard that you can't do this or you can't do that. I love it when someone tells me that it can't be done or noone has ever done this before. Because that means if I do it. I am the first one who has ever done it. Don't let the negative people get you down.

    All succesfull businesses or products had people think it was weird or not do able (airplanes for example) just do your thing and work your butt off.

    Goodluck! With that low a budget, maybe you should try woocommerce and Instagram shoutouts.

    Good luck! I hope you'll succeed. You can find many good articles about finding your niche. And your domai name depends on your niche. 100$ in small amount for promotion I think...but I hope it's for the beginning. I recommend you Facebook ads and Instagram promotions. Once again - good luck!
