I always had wondered what it would be like to start my own business but thought it would be too much and cost too much to start. Full disclaimer, it is a lot of hard work to start any business and make it successful but I didn't think I could start one with minimal overhead like a 'dropshipping' business. It was a good first start.
I had started and threw some things up against a wall, then had learned Facebook ads were key in propelling your droppshipping store. So, I took the money I had invested into that. After about a year and plenty of learning experiences, I ran out of money. I intermittently started another business which was more successful. I'm just dedicating my time to that.
Fulfilling orders, ordering from suppliers (alibaba), researching product niches, running advertising campaigns, etc.

Studying your buyer, asking and then listening to what they want. Lots of Facebook ads. Some instagram as well.
Why buy a business on Exchange
The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.
You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.
Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.
Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.
When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
Once you log into your Shopify account for the first time and choose a subscription plan, Shopify Support Gurus are available 24/7 to help you with the settings of the store.
