    Hi, i have been thinking about this for years, this is free niche in my country, we don't have local online marketplace, so i got to conclusion if properly managed this can get big.

    I am talking about amazon/etsy style site where people can buy and sell their stuff.

    I believe i have enough funds to build the site (from clone script) and run ads on FB and some popular local sites for about 1 year straight.

    How do i go about making site appear like its full of products and sellers to get started? Obviously no one will want to join if website will look like nothing is going on there.

    I will not do dropshipping, i don't believe its any good for real, long term business. I was thinking about settting up some small warehouse, order stuff from aliexpress/alibaba in various categories to get things started.

    Any suggestions on how to get started with this is welcome and appreciated. Or just let me know what you think about this idea.
