Default How Do Blogshops Profit Using Own Models

Hi all

I like start a blogshop using own models etc. however aft doing my sums I can't figure how do these shops make a profit as the cost paying these models & taking stocks don't seem so profitable . However pre order fm china website doesn't seem to work as well as I spent money buying fm these websites and the clothes were not even close to the photos & quality is terrible

or shd I just share a rented space with someone to sell in a shop front inside

Can anyone share

I guess unless you have heavy traffic to your website, you're pretty much gonna make a loss if you are going to engage professional models.

That's why most newly startups blogshops model their clothes themselves.

I had the same thought as you.
Since i don't have traffic to my website, might as well i rent a small shop space?
But it didn't really help, i barely covered my rental cost.
Location of your shop is very important. That said, good location = expensive rental...
Much to consider to make things work...

I guess everyone is trying to go online to sell. Me too I was thinking of doing that as a side income. Just not sure how profitable is it as my wife mostly will say "it will be a waste of time". Maybe some of the guys managed to make it.
