I agree with Marc on this one --
Business always has its pros and cons, most of the time, risks involved, as well. Apart from money, the one other thing that you need to invest in to ensure that you get a good return of investment here at SaleHoo is TIME.
You have to have time to learn new things and discover potential in each new item you come across. There's always a misconception that if a lot of people are talking about buying this product, that's what we are going after. Only to find out later that it's not working because of a lot of competition out there - so we feel frustrated and just give up.
The truth is, we have to be creative enough to market a simple product that requires time. Time to research, to learn the craft, to get rich. Because honestly, you will not earn as much you would imagine overnight.
Our successful members work hard to achieve their success, I suggest you browse around the forum and meet these people with successful SaleHoo stores and are power sellers in their own right.
If you need help with anything - something that may be unclear to you when it comes to searching for the right supplier - or maybe a change of niche could do you good, let us know so we can further assist you on this.
I hope that answers your question. Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with :)
