Step 1: Get Shopify.

The first step is the biggest. Sign up to Shopify and more importantly, put it straight on to a paid plan. This will give you the drive to make this a success. Commit or fail.

Step 2: Niche & brand.

Decide on a niche e.g “dog toys”, “micro building blocks”, “geometric jewellery”. Use Google trends to find one. Once you have a niche, create a brand for it using Brandmark.

Step 3: Select a business model.

Now that you have your niche and brand, you need products. Luckily, there are 2 awesome business models where you don’t need to buy any inventory up front, stock it or ship it. You just send the orders to the provider, they fulfil them and you take the profit. Dropshipping allows you to access the largest product base in the world, ready made. Print on demand allows you to create items using your own designs.

Step 4: Follow a course.
