Hello to all my readers and those who accidentally came across this article. I want to continue the topic of online stores and business with China (as it is now called), because I myself opened an online store, which I have repeatedly mentioned in past articles, and also because the topic is relevant and requires increased attention. An online store is a great business, which in Russia is not yet well developed, if not underdeveloped.
In addition to this article, read a detailed selection on how to open an online store from scratch to the first profit, where to buy goods and how to sell. Started ;)
I always answer this question the same way... whatever! But if this option does not suit someone, then I give a link to this article, in it the goods checked by me and my colleagues. Here is the article !
Take 10 products from your niche and place them on Avito or any other large bulletin board. Waiting for calls. If they do, then everything is cool) You can also read my article for more details on this topic on “How to test a niche”
By this concept I mean the following. Register a domain name like "www.your site.ru" and buy hosting, for example, for half a year. In total, it will cost you cheap. Domain for a year 100 rubles, hosting for half a year 600 rubles maximum. Order here .
Next, you need to install an online store engine on the domain (I recommend Opencart). I use it myself;) It's free, but you need to be able to install it) Next, we set up the engine, install everything you need for your store (extensions, modules, etc.). Next design! You can order from the studio, but it will be expensive. You can use a free ready-made one, but you need to find and install it.
All this requires the necessary knowledge and skills. But in this I can offer my help, write in the comments, I will write to you and solve all the questions;)
Advice right away! I am always for a quick start and gradual improvements! Therefore, I set myself a template design and uniqueized it so that it was less like a template. Now I see that the business is going and gaining momentum and soon I will attend to a unique design, while this is not required! And I advise you to start with minimal costs! IMHO
On this, the online store is ready and you need to fill it with goods. If you do not work with dropshipping, but there are goods in stock, like mine, then they need to be purchased. More on that later ;)
In China! On aliexpress or taobao. I wrote about all these sites and how to order from them on this site, look in the search. Okay, persuaded, do not look;) Here is an article on Taobao , but here is an article on Aliexpress . You can buy anything and everything there!
You can immediately. Sell a little, test it, and then in a month or two, register as an LLC or individual entrepreneur. Right now you will write to me in the comments about fines. Who needs you with your 10-30 thousand rubles a month at first?)
Here are my sales channels: Avito, Yandex Direct, VK group, and search engines. Everything is clear with Avito, ads in your city have always worked well, a VK group requires advertising in other groups and adding people as friends from an official account, Yandex Direct needs to be configured correctly, I can also help with this, and search engines depend on what niche and how quickly your site will be indexed.
Well, when sales go, and they go, you can already be creative with contests, promotions, prizes and methods of sales and promotion! All in your hands!
It seems to have painted everything in detail. I said at the very beginning that you can open an online store from scratch to the first profit very quickly and at minimal cost, even very minimal!
