In the hope of a deeper understanding of this business model and making it profitable for me, I am asking for already successful dropshippers to advice me and tell me about the difficulties i might face if I start doing this type of work.

I would be thankful if you could tell me what books to read and what kind of knowledge to gather, and also what kind of toxic information to avoid (ex. scamming youtubers).

I see this business model as a good platform for making a world-wide brand, but I did not close off my options only on that, I am eager to learn about different ways to build a successful entrepreneurial career.

If you're gonna dropship, don't use the Oberlo + AliExpress model. Instead, get yourself high quality suppliers located in the countries you want to sell your products.

That is, of course, if you want to create a real meaningful brand instead of making a quick buck.

I say this as someone who's made over $1-mil in revenue in 2 months alone (in 2017) using the Oberlo + AliExpress model. Trust me, even with good branding and amazing customer service, you'll get very little repeat purchases if shipping takes 2 - 4 weeks each time.

As for knowledge, dropshipping is literally just a fulfillment method. So the same business practices & strategies apply to dropshipping as it does to any other business.

Would you tell me more about making shipping as fast as possible? I assume the answer is to get a supplier that is in lets say USA if my target are Americans, but what is the alternative to AliExpress model?
