Skill Level Beginner
- After years and years of building e-commerce websites for other people, I decided that I wanted to develop and bring my own product to market. Two years ago, I took on the challenge. It took a year to do and nine months to fulfill because as it turns out, manufacturing is hard, and shipping takes awhile. If I had known what I know now, it would've been a lot easier. If you want to have your own online business, whether you're making the product yourself, or selling other people's products, the technology is already there. In this course, we'll cover everything you need to know to have a solid foundation for your e-commerce business. We'll look into different types of business models, choosing the right target audience, validating ideas, and managing cashflow. With a little planning, I'll help make sure you don't just have an e-commerce business, but a business that's profitable, easy to get started, and defensible once it's set up. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to launch your own store so you can share your great idea with the world. Hi, I'm Patrick Rauland.
