Smarter Steps - A Guide

As well as recommending technology for your home or office, one other thing we'll be trying to accomplish at Automate Everything is documenting strategies for cutting-edge businesses.

Here's a few things we've picked up along the way:

First Steps

Despite being associated with traditionally low margins drop shipping can often be a great strategy for getting a store up and running with relatively little effort. Shopify offers a 14-day free trial and numerous plug-in's to help you find products for your store.

Locating Inventory

Most of our initial catalogue came from items on Oberlo, which offers several tiers for budding entrepreneurs and if well managed can essentially be your one-stop shop for most of your drop shipping requirements. Once you've got your store up and running you can locate Oberlo under 'Apps'. Adding items from Oberlo is a small matter of click 'Add to Import' list. However it's always worth carefully reading the description to ensure that the correct adapters are present for the region you're shipping to.
