    If setting up an ecommerce site is intimidating, there are some resources out there that will setup an automated ecommerce site for you. This includes automated fulfillment, and adding new products to the store every month. You just have to manage it and drive traffic to it. The one that I know of is Auto eCom Empire. They just require your email to get started. You can check it out here:

    No matter how many breakthroughs, trials will exist and we're going to get through it. The zeal of staying strong is needed. I've been investing with the wrong people thinking I found people I could trust but everything turned out bad, I was at the brink of giving up until I met Mrs. Samantha De Silva and I invested with her, right now I and my lovely family is very happy

    PLEASE HELP, PLEASE.I want to create a online hardware store. Do I contact a wholesalers who sells these items or would I directly contact these companies and say hey I would like to sell your product on my website, in a professional official way of course? Would I need a warehouse ? I would like to sell emergency preparedness items such as solar charged flash lights and lamps, non perishable freeze dried food, first aide kits, portable Water purifiers.

    3. Branding is key
    4. Be visible on social media
    5. Optimize consistently
    6. Build an audience first
    7. You won’t get rich overnight

    Hi Kirk

    Thank you for your thoughts and experience. One aspect of Starting any business may it be online or reality based is ..drum roll please…. YOu have to register your Business and all the None Fun things that go along with this.

    For example in the USA you have to register your ecommerce biz maybe under a LLC or S Corp etc in the state of where you shall be based and operating , you need to record sales and report these.to the IRS you have to register to receive and report Stax , you need to know how much STax is charged on products to various states as this varies..

    For this you enlist the services of an Accountant

    You need to have an understanding of basic accounting so as keep accurate records of outgoing expenses and incoming sales .

    Along with stock management of online products and vendors etc etc.. It much much more than setting up a Pretty Website and Pushing Social Media. First you need to look at this as a Business and do your homework .

    When you build a website and everything do you use another persons product and market it as your own or theirs? And should you create multiple different websites for each set/theme of products?
