Hey guys, I'm pretty new to eCommerce. I saw some people make good money in this industry and I want to do that as well. Can anyone give me some advice on how to start?


Many thanks!


Very broad question but I would say #1 is product-market fit. Find a need or pain and find a great product and you'll have no problem with the rest such as the website or marketing.

Hey @!


Cal here from Shopify, thanks for reaching out to us. As mentioned by the Community this is such a broad question that it'll be difficult to focus on any aspect in particular. Is there something about selling and running a business online that you are unsure about? 


Have you got a product mind for your next venture? Have you thought about who your market audience would be? I have some tips on how to find a product to sell if you're not sure. Have you previously built a business plan? A solid business plan done with adequate research is essential for any new business.
