Ecommerce has quickly become a significant part of the 21st Century. The majority of the business you see out there somehow exists in the online space. The rise in popularity of online shopping is part of why many businesses are scrambling to create an online presence.
Entrepreneurs have had to scale their game to move with the fast changing commercial landscape to remain in business. Dropshipping, a unique online selling method, seems to be the solution for entrepreneurs who lack the capital muscle to start a new business.
Dropshipping is an online business model that allows traders to sell products without having to stock inventory. It is one of the many ways you can make money in the online space considering it requires less capital investment to start. You will be surprised to discover that most ecommerce start-ups do not have a dropshipping section. They have little or no idea of what it involves. But that should not scare you away, what you need to have is an online product catalog, and you are good to go.
Christian Green is among the few ecommerce entrepreneurs who have mastered the dropshipping art and are doing exceptionally well. He ventured into the ecommerce space just like any other entrepreneur in pursuit of success two years ago. Starting from scratch, Christian established his first successful ecommerce brand in March 2019.
The business kicked off well, and he made over $120k in sales within the first month. Twelve months down the line, he had scaled his business with over $1 million in sales. Hitting a million in sales has become a common thing to Christian as he continued to earn almost the exact figures with the same brand.
Success in the early years has made Christian shift focus, and now he is no longer doing dropshipping. He is looking more into diversifying his brands within the ecommerce business, and started a new ecommerce brand that has a fulfillment center in California. The business started its operations in October and closed the year with over $2.4 million in sales. With less than a year into the new brand, Christian is proving to be a future ecommerce mogul as he is already clocking over $3.5 million in sales.
With a clear understanding of what the market entails, Christian is looking forward to starting his brand that focuses on helping other entrepreneurs start their eCommerce business. He believes that the online market is big enough to accommodate anyone provided you understand the reason as to why you are in business.
Christian's primary advice to young entrepreneurs is that dropshipping is not a get-quick-rich scheme. It takes hard work, persistence, and dedication in the business to realize success. He, however, does not lock out the possibility of being successful in the early stages. It is very much possible, as long as you are looking to better yourself and your loved ones.
Christian has a very transparent trait whereby he is always more than willing to share his business details to show the actual business numbers to prove any doubters wrong.
