10 niche ecommerce sites making $100 each per dayEverything is possible, everything can happen .. is it going to work like that? only time can tell.
is this a realistic business model?
any field I feel confident writing about (health, wellness, food, nutrition, sport etc...)
Time-wise, is there anything preventing me from physically being able to complete this in terms of packing and sending the products etc?so the business plan should start with reliable suppliers, physical space for inventory and the shipping supplies to enable you to fill orders. You would want an account with your shipper. You may well want to accept your own payments - that means talking with your bank (and they may want to be certain that your business plan complies with their policies). The website is far down the list after you can determine that all the parts can be expected to function together as planned. Starting with goals before establishing viability can lead to disappointing surprises. Whatever product you decide you would like to specialize in, do the research to be sure it isn't an over-saturated field with thousands of competitors selling those identical products.
There are no guarantees the web will even find you. You will have to tell the web you are there ... that means advertising, either on-line, but better yet in print media, radio, and tv. Skywriting also works! Celebrity endorsement has its value, if you cna get it. These costs MUST BE INCLUDED in your initial plan. (and the one year bankroll mentioned above)
