You want to be an online entrepreneur but you don't have any idea as to what to sell online. You don't have your own products and you really don't want to create any. So what can you do if you don't have any products but want to sell merchandise online?

The answer to that question is to sell someone else's product. Think of all the retail stores around the country. Most retailers don't create their own products, they purchase products at wholesale and resell them at a higher cost to make a profit. You can do the same and you can do it online.

So what's the first thing you need to do? You want to find products that people want to buy. You will determine in your search for what products to sell that there are literally millions of products that you can sell online.

The only problem is, you can't sell a million products. You want to narrow your selection down. Don't try to compete with the big boys such as Walmart or Amazon. Find a niche area and work in it. Focus your energy and time in that area until the traffic is solid.

How to find that niche? One tool you can use is Google's Keyword Tool. With this tool you can determine how popular a product is with search. The tool gives you an ideal of the monthly search volume for each keyword.

Now that you have found your niche area, where do you go to find products in that niche? This is where a company called Worldwide Brands comes to the rescue. Worldwide Brands has a directory that includes a list of over 9000 wholesalers and drop shippers.

Remember, wholesalers sell their products at a low cost so you can add a markup to make a profit. This is why you want to work with wholesalers. The Worldwide Brands directory allows you to search products by subject such as baby, nutritional, and automotive products.

The list goes on and on. The directory saves you time from tracking down hundreds of companies yourself. The directory is also good because Worldwide Brands understands the wholesaling business and knows which are the best companies to work with.

Obviously, there's a lot more steps to running a business but this article covers the foundation to get you started. Don't be afraid to step out and do what you need to do to make money online. Trust me, this is something you can do. Get online and get selling. You'll be glad you took the step.
