I've been lurking here for a while, but I never posted anything (I never had an account to start with). The advice here is excellent, there is a good relationship between technical / mentality advice.
I thought about opening a discussion where we could all share some tips / suggestions (what to avoid, what works / what doesn't work, technical tips, etc.) to help each other on our trip.
I will start. This is the biggest lesson I learned, which I honestly would like to know when I entered the game 9 months ago.
DO YOUR COMPETITIVE RESEARCH! One of the fastest paths to success in my opinion; However, many people neglect it because it is too tedious / slow.
Conducting audience and competition investigations before launching a store is probably one of the most effective and efficient ways to ensure that one has a solid start, especially if financing is a problem. The problem that most new people have when it comes to dropshipping or choosing a product in general, is that they lack a solid foundation in their new business and in the market in which they have decided to enter.
From time to time, some may find that magic niche untapped and subsequently obtain a certain amount of money. They win from him and then lose him, because other vultures will weaken or rob them. Then everything repeats again and again. It is a long routine to earn enough to survive, until they are lucky with an undiscovered niche. However, that is not a business, it is just a game of chance.
Let's start the discussion!
What are the 2 things you would like to know when you just started? What kind of problems do you face daily at this time? How are you solving them? What are your biggest obstacles right now?
