I'm new here but I need some help. I'm trying to start a company on the side of a full time job, bootstrapping with very little cash to start. It's incorporated in Norway, but not making any sales.
We are two people doing this part time (10-15 hrs per week each). We have been trying to find a product to sell online and on amazon fba for more than a year and we can't for the life of us manage to find any products that are viable for sale.
We have been looking through several niches and now think survivalism/prepping products may be a good niche. It appears to be a growing billion dollar market in the US alone.
We are based in Norway and look to source from and sell in the US. (Long term, relocating to US is the plan) The Norwegian market is too small (population just under LA + San Diego) and the trends and interests are quite off compared with USA, UK, Australia, Canada etc. Also the toll and import charges are ridiculous.
When it comes to amazon fba, we seem to be hitting one legal and tax requirement after another. So it looks like I have to shell out for a CPA in USA in addition to the one in Norway.
We have been looking for good eCommerce courses, but all the courses that we have found online seem to be just from people who are mostly making money just from selling courses about how to sell, and not people who are actually in the top of the eCommerce selling field. (I have been reading books on eCommerce, but they all seem to be low quality? - What are the best and most current?)
At this point we really need some professional help, but we have no idea where to look.
