    3. Develop a marketing plan

    It depends on you what you want to sell. You can sell grocery items, stationary items, clothes and multiple products on your website.

    Before start any business you should do deep market analysis and proper planning because according to market analysis 95% business fail in first year due to lack of knowledge.

    You can start with multiple products which are famous in the market places and used by the people on a daily basis such as pens, clothing items, makeup products, smartphone accessories, keychains, etc.

    Your question is overly broad. What products to sell? The best selling ones. What is your area of expertise? Where is your product knowledge? What experience do you have with e-commerce? All of this plays into your question. You just can't put crap onto the internet expecting to sell it and make money.

    Yes, and how many of them actually make money? There are a ton of crappy "ecommerce" storefronts out there, but it doesn't mean they actually make any sales. Everyone thinks that you can open a dropship solution and make money. There has to be value added by the business owner, otherwise, it is a commodity in a very crowded space and the business if you can call it that, will fail.

    All niches are crowded as we all well know but it's how you go about selling the goods your sales copy has to be good otherwise you are wasting your time, But there are a lot of Ali express/shopify dropshipping websites out there making money.

    Get your research right. If you don’t you can be sure of one thing – failure!

    And the well crafted sales copy and putting the time in to do it would be the value add in that case.
