    Step 1. Decide on a niche

    Step 2. Decide on a CMS platform to build your store on.

    Step 3. Build your store - add products etc

    Step 4. Set up fulfilment systems - how you will deliver the product or service

    Step 5. Set up payment processors

    Step 6. Test it works.

    Step 7. Promote

    There are many more intricacies of operating an ecommerce business and I'm sure people will add or complicate my list but that will get you started.

    Best regards,

    Ozi

    Here is my plan. Please provide your feedback on this

    The niche that I am interested in is Hoverboard
    I am planning to buy a new domain that is atleast 4-5 years in age
    It will hosted on WP and will be using ALIExpress plugin for creating the store.
    It will be an affiliate website si it will be redirected to Aliexpress which eliminates integrating the payment gateways.
    Will be using the Onlywire tool to post on social bookmaring sites.
    Will be doing PPC and FBads to promote the website.

      Since it will be redirecting to Aliexpress, I guess the success will depend on how much customers trust Aliexpress. Having used them once, I wouldn't ever use them again, but that's just me.

      You might want to read this thread about AliExpress before going this route.

      Some thoughts however...

      Hoverboards have had a bad run with overheating during recharging. Check whether banned in the areas you want to sell.

      Buying a "New Domain" that is 4-5 years old.

      Are there good hoverboard domains that are 5 years old??

      Seems like a fruitless task to find an aged domain for a new product and do you think that the age of the domain would help?

      An affiliate store that is only going to pay a percentage using expensive PPC or other paid traffic to generate sales.

      The margins might be a tad slim...or even negative.

      What is plan B?

      Kind regards,

      Ozi

        Thanks for your replies friends. I actually got interested in the AliExpress program after reading this thread here and YT video
        Regarding the domain I guess I was not able to clearly elaborate. it will be a new domain that would last for atleast 4-5 years.

        If I have to switch over from Aliexpress I was thinking of using Fresh store builder plugin as that will promote Amazon products.

        So far there is no plan B as I am very new to this I am gathering info reading articles and threads.

        Please provide your thoughts on the warrior thread and YT video that I have linked here.

        Regards
