This is just an overview of how i make money with online stores and how i started it. For this you will need some investment capital since it involves a physical product to sell. First thing is that you have to choose the product. I choose products that are not available in my country, so i am the first one who is bringing them to people. You can check for products here on bhw in this section: Code: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f68-dropshipping-wholesale-hookups/ or like i do it, i am always checking for some nice products on these sites: - alibaba.com - aliexpress.com - dhgate.com There is alot of these websites out there but i mainly use just aliexpress. NOTE: You have to be carefull from which supplier do you buy products, cause not all of them are the same quality. Next thing i did i order about 10 samples from 10 different suppliers i think they are worth trying. They sent me the samples and i tested them and choose the best quality one. In the meantime you need to make an online store, where you are going to sell products. For one of my stores i use prestashop which is easy to install and easy to use, you can get it here for free: Code: http://www.prestashop.com/ But if you are selling just one product, i just create a simple sales letter and an order button at the end. It works really good for me. Now when you have the product choosen and website ready, you just need to generate traffic and sales. for offline marketing you can create flyers with coupons on it, you can also give an ad to your local paper. Maybe throw some kind of party. It also depends on a product. for online marketing you can create an adwords campaign, talk about the product on forums, create a page on facebook with a giveaway. You can also use blackhat techniques for better and faster results. If your product is new as are mine they will be selling fast. You can also go to stores and make a deal with them to also sell it there. I am making around 5k of profit from this after i pay for everything at the end of the month. At the end when you have everything ready and you are seeing sales everyday, you can always sell the whole business.
