OK guys, first off I want to say that I really appreciate the help and advice you all have been giving me. Every dime I spend on this endeavor is a MAJOR sacrifice for me, however investing in SaleHoo has by far been the best investment.
If you guys have been following along, I was seeking advice on what direction I should go....ebay, website, inventory, dropshipping...just so confusing!
Well I FINALLY made up my mind and after filing for all the appropriate business and tax licenses, I am proud to announce that I have my very own ecommerce site up and running, complete with a blog AND an eBay account selling health and nutritional supplements (thanks to the Research Lab and the various SaleHoo articles for this niche).
I now have several dropshipping accounts with wholesale suppliers and I must say that having the proper licensing makes this process super easy, so before seeking these accounts, it is in your best interest to get your licensing and tax/reseller permits in order.
Now that I have shown the community that I am serious about this...maybe you guys can let me in and share the Holy Grail of information...
How can I make my business grow and what steps should I take to market my business and bring traffic to my site?
At first I was kind of hesitant after seeing the millions of other sites, but by the same token, doing a little research about the creation dates of the websites makes me feel better. Even on eBay, some of the most successful sellers in my niche have only been on there since Jan of this year!
So please advise and I promise that it won't fall on deaf ears. Thank you all for your time to Help The Newbie.
Thanks to Yvette for pointing this out -
