Re: How to estimate sales before starting?

It's hard to estimate such things exactly without...

Re: Can i trust the Free Shipping of Aliexpress for my bussiness?

Probably OK to start, but in the long-term you better find suppliers, which work for you on a regular basis and handle everything as you want.

Re: PPC vs SEO

It's not a one vs. another issue. I'd probably not deliberately spend too much time on SEO either, but I get at least as many sales from organic SEO traffic as I do from PPC ads.

Re: No dropshipping... So what to do now ? - Help Please

If nobody drop ships your product that's both bad and good. Bad if you can't ship it yourself, good if you can (means less competition).

Re: 1 shop 10 niches vs 10shops with 1 niche each?

Depends on if your niches are somewhat related. If yes, you can make one shop, if not it would look weird if you sell cars and socks at one place (as an example).

Re: How much should I spend on Google Adwords?

It depends a lot on your CPC. Number of visitors from your ad should be statistically viable (which is defined by your average stats of course), otherwise you just place random bets.
